Oven temp control not working

I tried to bake in the oven and noticed everytihng was burning. I checked the oven temperature with a oven thermometer and found that the temp was 550 even though the oven was set to 375. The unit is a 4 year old GE Profile Spectra XL44 gas unit.

    The calibration procedure is only good for adjusting the temp + or - 35 degrees. My problem is over temp by over 150 degrees. The unit has been working fine for 4 years, this problem just started a few days ago. I am going try to unplug the unit in order to reset the electronics.

Think oven getting too hot and my cakes sag in middle


Get a cheap oven thermometer at your grocery store and check the temp before you put a cake in. Regardless of the kind of oven, this is the best way to be sure your temperature is correct before baking. I use one every time I bake, and I never have issues due to incorrect temp. I might have issues due to OTHER screw ups on my part, but it's not because the temp is wrong. You can buy an oven thermometer for a few dollars.

If you are monitoring the oven temperature with an analog style thermometer you may actually be ok, but seeing the thermometers slow reaction time.
Some newer ovens actually do pre-heat beep prior to reaching temp in an effort to conserve eelectricity.
A good home test is to try your oven at several different temps to see if there is any variation in internal temperature. Try it one day on 300, the next at 375 and another day at 450. Give your analog style thermometer time to catch up (usually just about 15 min) and leave it on for a half an hour to see if the temp maintains.
Also Beware of aluminum foil AND THE NEW OVEN LINER MATS as they can alter oven performance bay absorbing and blocking the ovens natural heat radiation and convection air flow currents that happen in all ovens, not just convection models.
Another interesting fact is that older ovens used a thermostat in them that operated much like your thermometer and was very slow to react making the oven typically about 100 degrees hotter than where the customer set it. This was just a fact of life before the advent of electronic temperature management and became noticeable when people began trying to bake older "hand me down" recipes in the newer ovens with less than stellar results.
You can mimic the older oven performance by preheating the oven about a hundred degrees higher than called for and after it reaches temp, re-set it to the correct temperature and put the items in right away.
If you find your temperatures fluctuating ask your servicer to replace first the temp sensor and as a last resort the control board as this part is usually pretty expensive.
Good Luck with this!

My oven is burning my baked goods, but shows the right temp with a thermometer. Do I have to turn the dial to broil and then back to the desired temp? Even if the rack is in the middle, everything burns....


If it is convection bake you have to turn the temp down (25 degrees or so) that is listed in the recipe.

The broil setting is not used to bake because it operates differently from the bake setting. So, don't go to the broil setting at all.
The element for bake is under the floor of the oven. You have not indicated whether it is gas or electric, but both of these can have issues with the burner or element.

If you are baking on the correct setting and the oven is heating from the bottom, not the top, this can be caused by hot spots that are created by elements/burners.

to check, look under the floor of the oven. Turn the bake heat up to high and see if the flame is uneven. For an electric oven, the color of the element should be evenly red, no brown spots.

If you are using an oven thermometer, move the thermometer to the spot in the oven that seems to be burning things the most.

My oven burns everything.


Use a 'oven thermometer' in the oven and determine the 'actual temperature' in the oven. Your knob setting is off (not calibrated) and the oven is hotter than the control knob setting.

Hi...

A main wire burned off will cause both elements to not heat at the same time. It could be at the back going to one element then jump off and go to the second element. Or some times the manufacturer runs the wiring to the front on the controls, and a 3rd area that they could have a common tie point is right where the power comes into the oven. When this usually happens you'll have ok burners on top and no power completed to the bottom.
OR
It could be a switch that's bad and not allowing power to carry on to your oven controls at the thermostat.
Let me know
Thanks

Whirlpool Stove oven temperature not accurate


This unit has a calibration function which can compensate for temperature errors of +/-30 deg F. Hold the BAKE button for 4 seconds to enter this mode. Use the Temp UP/DN buttons to adjust the temperature offset. Push START to enter the new offset.

Also, the typical manual oven thermometers are notoriously inaccurate.

If this doesn't solve your problem, next items may be the temperature sensor or control board. If it is the control board we may be able to repair it for you at www.fixyourboard.com.

Maytag oven overbakes or burns bottom of cookies, biscuits


Try this first, if the temperature is off contact me.
Put an oven thermometer at the center of the oven and set the oven to 350 degrees F.
 
Check the temperature indicated on the thermometer after 20 minutes. If it's not within 5 degrees of 350, you'll need to adjust the oven's temperature control.

Sounds like the temperature control is bad. If it's digital you'll probably have to replace the circuit board. if it's a control knob, it's the mechanism behind the knob.
