Cooking is determined by 3 things so let's look at what they are and what they do.

They are:

  1. The Fan Oven Element - This is very much the same as a light bulb only instead of giving off light it gives off heat. Like a light that is switched On or Off by a wall switch, the Element is switched On or Off by a Thermostat according to the temperature required. In short if the element fails your oven will be cold.
  2. The Fan & Motor - This sucks the air in through the centre mesh and circulates it around the Element and pushes the heated air out of the top, bottom and sides of the back-plate. Fan ovens cannot heat properly if the fan is not running OR if the fan runs too slowly as the motor starts to fail.
  3. The Thermostat. - This is basically an On/Off Switch that responds to the temperature in the oven. If The Fan is running correctly and you are achieving some temperature in the oven, then the fault will be with the Thermostat.
I hope this Helps - Terry

SOURCE: Oven not working properly

I just solved this problem with my GE gas range. I waited forever for the oven to warm up. The igniter would glow, light the burner and burn for a minute or so and go out. It would repeat this process till oven reached operating temp, which took forever. Problem is in the igniter. It may be glowing, but it is not letting the gas valve stay open, because it is not hot enough to create resistance in it to keep gas valve open. I had replaced the thermostat thinking it was the problem. The good part about it was I could take it back because my buddy works at supply house. Once the igniter was replaced, the oven fired up and stayed lit till operating temp was reached. It will also hold the oven temp much better. Oh yea, the igniter will stay glowing while the burner is on. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Frigidaire gas oven - model FGF366AWA - doesn't get hot inside

Hi,
Yes it could be the thermostat, but what you need to find out and it is difficult to do, is determine what is cutting your gas back off.
The thermostat could be doing that but the most likely cause is the ignitor.

http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=2150412&rdr=%2fpartsearch%2fmodel.aspx%3fmodel_id%3d111760%26diagram_id%3d335207

The amount of electric going through hte ignitor is what tells the gas valve to stay on. When the ignitor gets old it does not pull enough power anymore. The the burner lights for a bit and then cuts out before it should giving you some heat but not enough. It just sits there and cycles...

You can find parts for your unit by doing a search for “appliance parts”.
Once you get the results of the search, pick a site and when it comes up it will usually ask for the model number of your unit.
Enter your model number and you will then get a page with exploded views and a parts menu.
Find the part you need and then order it.
Check a few different sites to be sure that you are getting the best pricing.
Most sites can have the part to you in a couple of days.
I hope that this will help you to solve your problem!

Thanks for using Fixya!!

SOURCE: my oven takes ages to cook things am i missing

We had this problem; Your thermostat is probably broken. To test this theory, buy an oven thermometer and test how accurate the oven is. My bet is you will find this to be off. Fix it now, otherwise, it might lead to other issues.

Ignis AXL 905/IX oven and prob is food is cooking on top but not below. Two elements at top. Inner on when in oven mode, outer on in grill . Bottom of oven not warming evenly and burning top of food


Your bottom element is not working and that is why foods placed on top heat up but the undersides are not affected as much.

You need even heat on both sides of the food. Get a new element and replace.

Resetting the clock


Hello,

You can set the timer on a single oven slow cooker to automatically switch to a warming setting when you estimate foods will finish cooking.The programmable features allow you to leave food stewing at home while you are out of the house, freeing up your day. Set the timer on a Corningware slow cooker to let the kitchen appliance do all the work, and come home to a fully cooked meal.

INSTRUCTION BELOW.

  • Fill the insert of the single oven slow cooker with food and cover it with the lid. At least a quarter of the insert should be filled with liquid to keep the environment moist during long cooking times.
  • 2 Press the "On/Off" button on the left side of the electronic control panel in the front of the appliance. This will turn on the slow cooker to the low heat "Warm" setting.
  • 3 Press the "Cook Time" button on the right side of the electronic control panel to add hours to the timer which will show a total time in hours with a red digital display. Continue to press the button until the display indicates the desired cook time in one-hour increments up to 10 hours. The cooker will automatically adjust the temperature setting based on the amount of time you programmed on the timer. Cooking times of six hours or less automatically start on "High" heat and times of seven hours or more will start on "Low" heat. A small indicator light will come on below the word to tell you the cooking temperature.

  • Please rate this solution after use.

    Breaker flipped on my oven while cooking a turkey


    If the oven was still slightly warm to the touch when you came home is probably fine. 45 minutes was not enough time to get the turkey hot down near the bone, so if it was cool I would discard it. But if you were lucky and it was still warm, go ahead.

    Instruction manual


    HI SIR  
    When you first use your Oven, the Oven will need to "settle". That is, it needs to burn off production residues and dust. The metal used in the Oven will also expand slightly when first used. You will experience some crackling and a strong smell. This is perfectly normal and we advice you anticipate this "settling" prior to use. Using an empty Oven, select Function 4 and set a temperature of 250°, allow the Oven to "settle" for hour, turn to function 3 and heat for a further 1/2 hour.
    Multifunction Oven Function Selections

    2. Defrost - This function activates the fan only, (no heat is used) to allow controlled and hygienic defrosting.
    3. Conventional cooking - Normal or traditional cooking functions using the top and bottom elements. When using this function set the thermostat between 50 - 250°C. When the desired temperature is reached the yellow light will go out and then alternate between lit and unlit as the temperature is controlled.
    4. Fan-Forced cooking - This selection is best for multilevel cooking as the heat generated by the central element is circulated around the Oven, creating an even heat environment. You will need to set the thermostat dial between 50-250°C for this function.
    5. Center Griller - For best results set the thermostat to MAX. The door may remain closed or completely open.
    6. Large Griller - For best results set the thermostat to MAX. The door may remain closed or completely open.
    7. Fan Griller - This function combines the grill element with fan assistance and is used in conjunction with the thermostat. The Oven door must remain CLOSED during cooking. The thermostat dial should be set between 50-250°C for this function. 
    8. Fan-assisted Baking or Patisserie Setting
     - Combines the concealed bottom element with fan assistance and is used in conjunction with the thermostat. The Oven door must remain CLOSED during cooking.

    Advanced Oven Features

    Cavity Cooling

    The Oven has an advanced cavity cooling system. A cylindrical fan is mounted on the rear outside frame of the Oven. This fan assists the movement of air through the Oven cavity keeping it cool. In addition to reducing the temperature in the Oven cavity, the air is blown out around the Oven door handle which keeps the door handle cool. The cooling fan is activated when the Oven light or any cooking function is selected and will switch off after all Oven functions have been turned off.

    Triple Reflective Door Glazing

    Some Ovens have two levels of removable door glass. The two inner layers are removable and are made of a reflective glass which, in effect, reflects heat back into the Oven and results in a significant reduction in the outside door surface temperature. To clean the door glass, use a coin or large screwdriver to remove the screws. Wipe both sides of the inner, middle and outer glass. Wipe the sealing gasket. Don't forget to replace the rubber sealing gasket around the centre glass layer before replacing the glass. Ensure the narrow air gap lies between the inner and centre glass layers and the wider gap lies between the centre and outside glass layers. Tighten each screw gradually, one then the other until firm. Do not overtighten.

    Wipe Clean Enamel (Extra Optional)
    Some models have easyclean blue enamel paint throughout the internal cavity walls. Other models have baking trays and grill pans finished in the soft grey super tough "wipe clean" enamel. This enamel is less porous than conventional, so that food does not adhere as easily. Simply wipe clean with a soapy cloth or creme cleanser when cooking is finished. For baked on residue, use a smooth scraper or if necessary a non-caustic Oven cleaner.

    Drop Down Grill Element (Extra Optional)
    The removal of a single screw at the front of the upper grill element in some models allows the element to drop down so that cleaning of the roof of the Oven is made easy. On completion of cleaning, simply replace the grill element and secure with the screw, finger-tight.

    The Electronic Timer



    Normal Baking

    Function 3: Normal Oven baking using heat from both the upper element and concealed lower element.

    To bake, place the Oven rack in the appropriate position according to the type of food to be cooked. Turn the Function Selector to Position 3 and the thermostat knob to the correct temperature, and allow the Oven to fully preheat for best results.

    Ideal for cooking casseroles, soufflés, roast, meats, and other items which require a slow method of cooking.

    top


    Fan Forced Baking

    Function 4: Fan-forced central element cooking requires slightly different timing techniques than normal cooking. The fan draws the air in and over the central element which is positioned around the fan and then circulates it back around the Oven cavity. The even distributor of heat allows foods to rise and cook simultaneously regardless of shelf level. Lower cooking temperatures and in some cases less cooking time is another advantage of this feature.

    Turn the Function Selector to Position 4 and turn the thermostat to the desired temperature. Pre heating takes much less time than a normal bake Oven.

    Note: When cooking meats, for best results always preheat the Oven to ensure the meat surface is sealed to lock-in juices for a moist and tender result.

    Fan forced cooking is ideal for multilevel cooking e.g.. patty cakes. Another advantage of fan forced cooking is that different types of food may be cooked simultaneously without mixing the aromas or flavours. When using the Oven in this way, ensure that all the foods require the same cooking temperature and check the finish times of each dish for best results.

    Please note that fan-forced cooking is faster than conventional methods, so take care not to burn your food when you first start using this method.

    top


    Grilling

    Function 5 & 6: During grilling the door may remain closed or completely open.

    This function offers the traditional grilling method necessary to achieve proper browning without overcooking the interior of the foods.

    Position 5 activates the centre section of the upper grill element only, which is ideal for browning smaller portions or thinner cuts of meat.

    Position 6 activates the entire upper element for the grilling of large quantities or thick cuts of meat.

    Allow the griller to pre-heat for approx. 2 minutes before sliding the tray into position.

    Place the grill tray into the roasting pan and arrange food according to the function you have selected, either in the centre of the tray or spread across the full width of the tray. Position the tray at the correct grilling level and turn the thermostat control to MAX for best results.

    As the temperature is set to MAX you may need to adjust your grilling shelf height to suit the desired cooking result. If the tray is too close to the element, the food will be exposed to the full effect of the element and may burn and create smoke.
