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.

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.

Pump in boiler (worcester 24I)keeps stopping


Electric motors are always equipped with a magnetic starter, composed of a magnetic contactor and an overload relay. It protects the motor from burning out when the current drawn exceeds the setting of the overload relay by cutting the power supply.
Furthermore, motors draw more current during starting and draws even more when the load driven is heavy.
Check the following for early prevention of burning out of the motor windings:
  1. Motor windings
  2. Motor temperature
  3. Line current
  4. Motor noise
  5. Load
The usual cause in the rise of motor temperature, line current and noise is the wearing out of the motor bearings. When the bearings wear out, the motor has difficulty in driving the load and draws more current and temperature rises or the motor rotor touches the stator and causes a grinding effect that produces the noise. When the motor always stops, replace the motor bearings and check continuity of the motor terminals with its body. There should be no continuity between the motor body and its terminals, otherwise rewinding is necessary. In your case check the pump impeller for any obstruction.
Note: Continuity test is done using an ohmmeter. With continuity means zero resistance. No continuity means infinite resistance. You may actually need the help of a qualified electrician.

Oven Temperature rises above setting


You may or may not see the error code.
The temp probe is less expensive and is most likely your problem.
If you choose to replace it and the problem remians your ERC will have to be replaced.

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.
