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.

Why is my oven burning baked goods on the outside but still raw on the inside, when baking at the correct temperature setting?


Sounds like you need to set your thermostat as its not reading properly. Ours has a little screw on the side of the thermostat and I use an oven thermometer to make sure the heat is right. Ours was twenty five degrees out.

Oven burning food


Get an oven thermometer and measure the temperature in the oven to determine if it is at the correct temp or not. If not then there is an oven problem possibly the oven temp probe or the oven electronic controller. If the temp is correct then you are doing something wrong as a cook such as oven temp set too high or cooking for too long.

The oven doesn't come close to keeping a REASONABLE temperature. It fluctuates sometimes 75-100 degrees. I'm not talking about opening the door and then waiting to re-establish the temperature it was set...


If you just bought it, have it replaced, or repaired under warranty. If it is an old oven, replace the temp probe first (if it electric) It senses the temp inside oven, It is the least expensive part of the fix. If that doesn't work, replace thermostat/temp control board. When you replace a board, you replace the probe too. It will be needed either way. If just changing the probe works, you saved yourself some money.

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.

Oven not heating properly


Hello. You have done an excellent job of explaining your problem. Read over the info. below as it sounds like your top element is not working.

  • When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

    You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

    If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

  • When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly.

    If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective.

    Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details.

    Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat.

    If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

    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.

    Oven Temperture adjustment


    On my Epicure, you are supposed to press the bake selector pad then press the + button to set the temperature to 500 degrees or higher.  Then hold the bake button for 5 seconds.  The temp display is replaced by 00.  Release the bake pad and use the - or+ buttons to adjust the temperature in 5 degree increments.  When finished push cancel (or just do nothing).  Good luck.  I tried this and my oven kind of went haywire.  It decreased the temp by much more than the 10 degrees I had set it too.  May be something else wrong with my oven though?
