Question about Whirlpool GS475LEKS Gas Kitchen Range
I just burnt a cake that I make regularly and needs 1 hour in the oven at 350 degrees, it burnt after 30 minutes! Something is very wrong. It also shut itself off and showed an error message with a F in it but I'm not sure which number came after it! I also have a common problem with this range that when I preheat it, some of the time after the 10 mins or so of preheating it will show it is on but it won't have heated up at all. Are these two separate problems or could they be related. I read on another posting that my first problem could be the oven tempature sensor, does that sound right? Could there be something else that needs repair too? Any help would be greatly appreciated - tnx:)
it means bake range over temperature.
have a technician check out the oven temp sensor. you may have a short in wiring or it may need to be replaced.
if problem still persists, replace the clock.

The good news for you is that your gas provider, the folks who bill you for the gas offer a free service whereby they will send out a technician to adjust your stove for no cost.

Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:"
You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.
If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.
If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective.
Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details.
Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat.
If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

The first thing you will need to do is to verify that you have 230 volts at the outlet. Chances are pretty good that the unit popped one of the double pole breakers. Check the breaker and reset it if you find that you only have 120 volts at the outlet. If after finding that you have only 120 volts and you've reset the breaker then the problem would lie with the breaker needing replacement. If however you have full 230 volts available at the outlet then additional troubleshooting would be needed. Hope this helps... Bill
