SOURCE: We have a digital controll that is not accurate on

on most modesl this is called a clibration adjustment
most have a code that you can enter into the erc
if you still have your book, it is in the directions
most work this way
push and hold bake for 5 sec
you should get a double 00
then use the up arrows to adjust the temp
if this does not work send me the model number
ill send you the directions

My oven gets warm but will not reach set temperature. Is this the element


Hello Peter;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

I recently repaired a oven that would be off as much as 200 degrees. The normal operation of your oven is to rise 20-40 degrees above set temperature and shut down until it drops 20-40 degrees below set temperature, turns back on and repeats the cycle again.

Generally, there are only three components that control your oven temperature:

1.) The Heating Element - If you are getting heat your heating element may be good. To be on the safe side inspect the two connections on the back wall to ensure they are not corroded.

2.) The Thermocouple - There are several different thermocouples depending on your model and if your have gas or electric. These are easily replaced.

3.) Oven Control - Here again there are several different controls, both mechanical or digital.

I just purchased a oven thermocouple and a reconditioned digital control over the internet for under $75.00.

IF YOU HAVE A DITIGAL CONTROL - GROUND YOURSELF BY TOUCHING BARE METAL. STATIC ELECTRICITY WILL KNOCK OUT A BOARD.

So, go into the following website put in your model number and select parts. Several diagrams with part numbers will appear. Your model number is on a metal plate on the face of your oven after you open the door.
Fine your thermocouple and oven control. Copy these part numbers and search the internet for best price.
First, replace the thermocouple. If this solves your problem then return the control for credit if not install the oven control. The highest probably is you have a bad thermocouple

Is the oven temperature in Celcius or Farenheit...I tried to heat up oven to cook chicken and it only goes up to 287 degrees....


It should come programmed with ?F. Have you tried to cook anything in the unit to measure the temperature? That would be another way to easily tell. Set it for the highest you can get it and bake something you normally would be at a lower temp for lower amount of time and go from there.

The oven will only heat between 77 and 287 degrees. The temperature will not go above or below these numbers.


Thank soooo much Benham!!!!!!! I would give u a hug if you were here in my house. I thought the oven was broken. I only had it for couple of months and it is brand new. I held the broiler button down and it is on (f). My oven is normal again. Thank you very much.

My oven temperature is 100 degrees hotter than it should be


It will be the sensor inside the oven compartment that is causing the problem.
A new sensor should cure the prob, certainley cheaoer than buying a new oven.
Hope my advice helps you.

OVEN ISSUES


Newer style ovens with an electronic range control (ERC) utilize a temperature sensor inside the oven to regulate heating. This sensor controls the cooking modes and usually the self-cleaning mode on those models that have the option.

The sensor has a very specific internal resistance that changes along with temperature. The sensor goes bad when its resistance is changed through a faulty internal connection or internal short.

How to Diagnose?
You can remove the sensor and check its resistance. It should read about 1100 ohms at room temperature. If the reading is off more than about 50 ohms, replace the sensor.

5 yr old Jenn Air Electric oven won't maintain oven temperature


Technician just left our house with same issue. Jenn-Air had issued a technical bulletin as the temperature probe is mounted directly to the heating element, and measures the heat of the element, not the oven. Their fix is a revised temperature probe that goes at a 90 degree angle away from the heating element.

If your temperature is consistent, just off by a set amount of degrees, there is an adjustment you can make at the control panel.

Digital oven temperate is wrong


Yes, that is the probe that sends info to the controller.

If it's not bad, then the controller is, but normally it's the probe.

Check that the controller has not been incorrectly calibrated before you change the probe out, although most do not allow a swing of more than 15-20 degrees. Yours may allow more though.

I am guessing you measured the actual temperature, to the set point temperature, with a know good thermometer.

Oven will not achieve setpoint temperature.


You may not need anything. Most people test their oven with a dial type oven thermometer. They are slow to react and often not very accurate. When I test an oven or install a new thermostat, I use a digital thermometer with a remote temperature probe, hanging from the center of the oven, which shows the temp in tenths of a degree. I let the oven cycle on and off at least three times, then take the high and lower readings on the next cycle and average that out to see what the actual oven temp is. Most of the time, if there is a dial type thermometer in the oven it is very slow to react. After 3 to 5 cycles, they often show close to what the actual oven temp is, but the only way to know for sure is to use the more accurate digital thermometer. Most ranges with digital displays can be adjusted + or - about 35 degrees. Check your users manual for this info, but don't mess with it until you have checked the oven with a digital thermometer! Please don't bother rating this solution, as anything but a Fix-Ya drops my score. Thanks.

Digital screen goes off oven will not work stove top is working fine


The "digital screen" is connected to the electronic control board which controls the oven (the surface elements on the stove top will not be affected by this problem). The "flickering on and off" could be any connection that feeds the electrical supply of the control board. Like something in the wiring harness that feeds the relay board, or the wiring harness that goes from the relay board to the electronic control board. It could also be the relay board or the electronic control board themselves. To isolate the problem you would need to check electrical supply to each board at the time of the "problem" when the "digital screen goes completely off." This would tell you where you "have" the voltage and where the voltage supply is lost. If it is a loose or burned wiring harness replace the harness or individual wire causing the problem if it turns out that it is the relay control board or electronic control board replace them. The relay control boards are typically around $75.00 and the electronic control board $150.00 and up. Might be cheaper to purchase another used oven or bite the bullet and buy a new range.
