The adjustment screw is behind the oven knob, remove the knob and in side the thermostat shaft you will find that screw. first you put an oven thermometer inside the oven at 250 degrees for about 20 minutes with out opening the oven door. now you know. if oven is to low turn that screw the same way the oven temperature goes high. about a quarter of and inch. if oven temperature is to high turn the screw the same way the oven temperature goes from high to low.

Alarm sounds with F2 flashing and won't clear


,Hello,

The F2 error code means that the over overheated by at least 100 degrees above the tempature that was set at the time. The usual reason the oven would over heat by so much is a defective oven tempature sensor and the sensor would need to be tested to see if is the problem to test the sensor it would need to disconnected from the wiring to it and measure the amount of ohms of resistiance AT ROOM TEMPATURE when the oven is off and cool. At room temp. the the meter used to check the sensor should display between 1060-1100 ohms,if the number is vastly different that 1060-1100 at room tempature the sensor is defiently bad and should be replaced. This is what the sensor looks like oldtech2332_129.jpg
it will be inside of the oven chamber and again to properly check it the wiring should be unplugged and the meter leads should be placed into the plug at the end of the sensor to measure the ohms

Error code F3 E5 when using self clean cycle


Error Code F3 - E5 - Oven temperature sensor (RTD) shorted (lower oven, if double oven)

Replace Oven temperature sensor (RTD) or Thermal Fuse.


Hope this helps.

Oven temp not correct


One thing you should know about a gas oven is that they do not keep a constant tempature like an electric oven does. So going by a tempature gauge in the oven can fool you. The way a gas oven works is by "average" tempature. In other words if you take the highest and lowest tempature readings and average them out you will get the actual tempature. For example let's say that you set the oven to 350. Well first it will take about 10 to 15 minutes for the oven to properly pre-heat. Once it is preheated you can listen to the gas burner and watch a tempature gauge(flook meter is best). When the gas burner shuts off the oven tempature will continue to rise. When the oven tempature stops rising then you will take that reading. Then wait for the oven burner to come back on again and watch the tempature gauge. When the tempature gets to it's lowest point and stops then take that reading. Do this several times and then take all the tempature readings and add them together then divide that number by the number of readings you took and that will give you the actual tempature. Within 5 degrees is great but anything over 10 degrees can affect your cooking. This will give you an idea if your oven is out of calibration or not.

There is a calibration procedure. The instuctions are located in the owners manual and can be found here http://products.geappliances.com/MarketingObjectRetrieval/Dispatcher?RequestType=PDF&Name=49-85131.PDF

Just go to the "Thermostat Adjustment" section for the proper calibration procedure.

Viking Thermostat bad - Feels like Little House on Prairie


It does not sound like the guy is trying to rip you off. Most mechanical thermostats are adjustable by a center screw in the oven control knob stem behind the knob. The problem is when an oven is off by more than 30 degrees they become almost impossible to calibrate correctly and it is better to replace it. There would not be any danger in just using the thermometers and just living with the problem. It would be a very expensive fix for a Viking and if you can live with it then you are better off. The parts alone will probably be over $300 and then there is the labor charges. The thermostat assembly also includes the tempature probes so it requires major range dis-assembly to replace it. Sometimes the oven control knob will have an adjustment screw on the knob istelf(back of knob) to adjust the position of the dial ring to match the correct oven tempature. This can allow you to change the position of the knob to match the actual tempature of the oven. They usually will only go 30 degrees one way or the other though. So my advice is that if you can live with it and are able to still cook properly then put off fixing it. If you find that over time the cooking tempatures start increasing then you might have no choice but to have the thermostat assembly replaced.

Oven does not maintain a consistent temperature


Is this oven gas or electric? If it is gas then it can be normal to see 30 to 50 degrees difference in tempature. The tempature in a gas oven works on the average tempature. For example: The oven tempature may rise all the way up to 370 degrees. Then the burner will shut off. And then the tempature can drop all the way to 330 degrees. Then take 330 and add that to 370 then divide that number by two and the average tempature will be 350. If your oven is electric then the tempature should be much more consistant but can have a 10 to 15 degree variance. Also the standard oven tempature guage that you put in the oven or even the temp guage built into the oven are not very accurate. We us a Fluke meter with a thermocouple to calibrate an oven. So to check your oven for proper tempature regulation you will first need to let the oven pre-heat for about 15 minutes. Then place the thermocouple in the center of the oven. If the oven is electric the take a temp reading every 5 minutes and average them out. If the oven is gas then you will need to take a temp reading when the tempature reaches it's highest and lowest points. Take at least 5 consectutive readings and average them out. You should get an average within 10 degrees of set temp(350 degrees). If it is off by 35 degrees or less you can usually caluibrate the thermostat back to proper temp. This procedure can be different for each range model. If it is more than 35 degrees off or you are getting irratic readings then the thermostat or thermostat components might need to be replaced.

Oven tempature is 35 degrees celcius less than set tempature even after adjusting oven tempature control


if you read your tappan instructions, it will tell you to turn your oven to 550 degrees, then press and hold the bake button for 15 seconds. it will blank out and go to 0. adjust temp up or down accordingly. peace out.
