Oven doesn't work

We lost power for 4 days. When the power came back on and we tried to use the oven, when you press BAKE, the pad says OFF. No temp shows and it doesn't heat. It is an electric stove.

This may be one of the models that locks out the controls after a power failure. The problem is that the only way to find out how to unlock the panel is in the owners manual on some models and in the tech manual on others. I believe that you have to press "Stop Time" and "Cancel" at the same time for 5 seconds. Good Luck!

    Check to make sure that both the Broil and Bake elements are functioning. During a bake preheat cycle the bake elm is in 90% of the and the broil is on the other 10% If both appear functional then you probably need a new sensor or control board.

Oven temperature is inaccurate and takes a long time to heat to proper temp. I have replaced thermostat with no improvement.


To Adjust the Thermostat


  1. Touch the BROIL HI/LO and BAKE pads at the same time for 3 seconds until the display shows SF.
  2. Touch the BAKE pad. A two digit number shows in the display.
  3. Touch BAKE again to alternate between increasing and decreasing the oven temperature.
  4. The oven temperature can be adjusted up to (+) 35°F (19°C) hotter or (-) 35°F (19°C) cooler. Touch the number pads the same way you read them. For example, to change the oven temperature 15°F (8°C), touch 1 and 5.
  5. When you have made the adjustment, touch the START pad to go back to the time of day display. Use your oven as you would normally.

You can adjust the bake average temp +/- 35 degrees this is called calibration.
Here's How:
To Adjust: 1. Press the BAKE pad (upper or lower oven) and enter 550° F. 2. Press and hold the BAKE pad (upper or lower oven) for several seconds until TEMP ADJ is displayed. 3. Press the AUTO SET pad - each press changes the temperature by 5° F. The control will accept changes from -35° to +35° F. 4. If the oven was previously adjusted, the change will be displayed. For example, if the oven temperature was reduced by 15° F, the display will show -15° F. 5. When you have made the adjustment, press the CANCEL pad and the time of day will reappear in the display. The oven will now bake at the adjusted temperature.
Do this first and you will be back to normal. If your using a oven temp. checker make sure you let the oven cycle for awhile. Preheat should take about around 10min. Remember 350deg is an average temp.
Have a great day!

Remove power. Go to the back of the oven control and remove the multi plug, check for corrosion, clean contacts, and reconnect securely. Check the ribbon connection between touch pad and control board (if applicable). Retry

How do I calibrate the oven temp?


Oven Temperature Adjustment Option for the MSG5770
If you think the oven should be hotter or cooler, you can adjust
it yourself. To decide how much to change the oven temperature,
set the temperature 25°F higher or lower than the temperature
in your recipe, then bake. The results of the “test” should
give you an idea of how much to adjust the temperature.
To adjust the oven temperature:
1. Press the BAKE pad.
2. Enter 550° by pressing the number pads “5, 5, 0”.
3. Press and hold the BAKE pad for several seconds until 0°
appears in the display.
4. Press any number pad to change the temperature. Each time
a pad is pressed, the temperature changes by 5°F.
• Press repeatedly to reach +35°F. Continue pressing
to reduce the temperature up to -35°F.
• If the oven temperature was previously adjusted, the
change will be displayed. For example, if the oven
temperature was reduced by 15°, the display will
show -15°.
5. When you have made the adjustment, press the
CANCEL pad and the time of day will reappear in the
display. The oven will now bake at the adjusted
temperature.
NOTE: Do not change the temperature setting more than
10° at a time before testing the oven.
It is not necessary to readjust the oven temperature if there
is a power interruption. This adjustment will not affect
broil or clean temperatures.

Hello sfgelectric,
Welcome,

You said, your broiler and oven won't work. That you set bake and it beeps and the bake light flashes but oven wont light.

Does the display flash any error codes, or just the bake light?



Fault codes
1. BAKE or LOCK may flash rapidly in the display to alert you if there is an error
or a problem. If BAKE or LOCK appear in the display, press the CANCEL pad.
2.If BAKE or LOCK continue to flash, disconnect power to the appliance.
3.Wait a few minutes, and then reconnect power. If the flashing still continues,
disconnect power to the appliance and call an authorized servicer.
4.If the oven is heavily soiled, excessive flareups may result in a fault code during
cleaning. Press the CANCEL pad and allow the oven to cool completely, wipe out
excess soil, then reset

For most concerns, try these first.
Check if oven controls have been properly set.
Check to be sure plug is securely inserted into receptacle.
Check or re-set circuit breaker. Check or replace fuse.
Check power supply

I'll check the repair manual to see what I can find.
Let me know how it goes.
Perhaps this will fix a glitch.
Huuum

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?
