Sounds like a bad oven thermostat(run away temp), thermistor deopending on age, but that would shut off witha fault code after awhile,

Oven is over heating to set temp


Well if that is really happening you would need to make sure that the temperature gauge is working properly

My LG electric range overheats every time it is turned on


If the sensor you changed is the rod type one in the oven itself then the only other thing possible is the control board where you set the temperature. The sensor works with that board to control oven temp.

The right hand oven lights, but no matter which gas mark setting you select, the flame does not rise to increase oven temperature, but stays on pilot settings


the flame needs to be adjusted there's a small screw right inside of the shaft where the knob goes. Pull knob off and there should be a screw inside that u shaped shaft. Turn the burners on and set the flame accordingly.

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.

Grease fire in oven. elements would not come back


First verify 220 volts to the range where the cord connects.
Second,unplug the range and remove the element again and using a volt/ohm meter set for ohms or continuity check the element. No reading is a bad element.
Third, if power is OK and the element reads continuity check for power in at the oven control in the control panel.
Set for Bake and check power Out of the oven control.
No power out is a bad element.
If the control is OK,remove the oven temperature sensor and with the meter check for 1100 ohms +or- 25 ohms.
If not correct,replace the temp sensor.

Tappan Oven #MEF500PBWD heating unevenly


Perhaps the item you are using to check temperatures is not accurate. I my line of work, I use a digital thermometer which records immediate temperature. Perhaps understanding the process will help you see more accuracy in the way you read the temperature in your oven. Allow me to offer this explanation....First of all, place your thermometer near on the top rack as close to the oven temperature probe as possible. This probe is the focal point for your oven and detects the temperature and opens the electrical circuit to turn off the element when the desired set temperature is attained. Set your electric oven to 300 degrees and hopefully, you have a window in your oven to watch. The bake element will come on and the temperature will rise until it reaches 300 degrees. It is at this point when your oven bake indicator light should go out. When this happens....look inside. The element is still bright orange and emitting heat and will continue to raise the temperature in the oven to approximately 325 - 340 degrees. With this noted, you will see the temperature beginning to drop 315, 310, 300, 295, 290, 285 perhaps even 280 or some even lower to 275 and then the indicator lamp will go on indicating the circuit has closed thus turning on the element, Finally there is a variance and no range GAS or ELECTRIC will ever maintain a even 300 degree temperature. The calibration set point is based on the 300 degrees. If your oven light goes off within 20-25 degrees of three hundred degrees, your oven is already calibrated pretty close and I would not attempt to adjust it at all.
