Oven proof thermometers can be stuck into the thickest part of the meat and left in during the cooking process. It should not be touching fatty or bone areas as these hold more heat.

Whirlpool Accubake Wall oven, RBS305PD86 will not heat over 350


The first thing to ask yourself is "Is the thermostat accurate?"
Get an El-Cheap-O oven thermometer at the grocery store. Set your oven for any random temp, say 325. With the over thermometer HANGING FROM A RACK IN THE MIDDLE, wait until the oven light that tells you it is heating goes out, indicating that the oven is at 325. Open the door and QUICKLY read the thermometer you have hanging in there. IF the hanging thermometer and the temp displayed on the oven match within, say, 25 degrees then we have an issue. And, as you say that you have already replaced the temperature sensing element, that only leaves the control board or the upper and lower safety thermostats. Those are what we call "Snap Disc" thermostats. To see a typical snap disc thermostat, go to ApppliancePartsPros.Com or just BING (NEVER 'Google') Part Number: AP3055315. These theremostats may be opening prematurely, preventing the oven from reaching full temp. And once the oven cools, the snap disc will close again, allowing the unit to work. Kind Of. If it's not one of the safeties, the board is toast.

Oven runs hot not responding to temp knob.


refer to your use and care manual and there is a section on adjusting/calibrating the oven temps. tip do not use a small thermometer from the grocery to adjust your oven. buy a decent digital style...... then turn you oven on and let it cycle 3 times, that is elements come on then go off = 1 cycles. then watch the temp scale. record the temp when element turns off,,, then them temp when it turns on. add the 2 temps together then divide by 2 and that gives you the temp the oven is maintaining. then adjust accordingly. DO NOT ADJUST PER THE HIGH OR LOW TEMPS. use the middle temp as described.

Hi! I just bought a Weber pocket digital thermometer and want to know if I shall leave it in the meat in the oven during all the roasting time or insert and check once in a while? Please help.


It is not designed to be left in the meat, while in the oven. It's an insta-read type of thermometer for occasionally checking the internal temperature, in the thickest portion of the meat, while cooking. Be careful not to insert it in such a way, that it touches a bone, It will give a false reading, if it does.

I hope this helped you and thanks for choosing FixYa.

When set to bake eg: 350 degrees the audio alarm will indicate it's reached temp but the oven is 50- 75 degrees lower. Must wait another 15 min for it to reach the proper temp. Have tried to adjust the off...


If you are monitoring the oven temperature with an analog style thermometer you may actually be ok, but seeing the thermometers slow reaction time.
Some newer ovens actually do pre-heat beep prior to reaching temp in an effort to conserve eelectricity.
A good home test is to try your oven at several different temps to see if there is any variation in internal temperature. Try it one day on 300, the next at 375 and another day at 450. Give your analog style thermometer time to catch up (usually just about 15 min) and leave it on for a half an hour to see if the temp maintains.
Also Beware of aluminum foil AND THE NEW OVEN LINER MATS as they can alter oven performance bay absorbing and blocking the ovens natural heat radiation and convection air flow currents that happen in all ovens, not just convection models.
Another interesting fact is that older ovens used a thermostat in them that operated much like your thermometer and was very slow to react making the oven typically about 100 degrees hotter than where the customer set it. This was just a fact of life before the advent of electronic temperature management and became noticeable when people began trying to bake older "hand me down" recipes in the newer ovens with less than stellar results.
You can mimic the older oven performance by preheating the oven about a hundred degrees higher than called for and after it reaches temp, re-set it to the correct temperature and put the items in right away.
If you find your temperatures fluctuating ask your servicer to replace first the temp sensor and as a last resort the control board as this part is usually pretty expensive.
Good Luck with this!

Wattage Power


Unfortunately, the old owner's manual doesn't say, but you can do a test to see what its heating power is:

MICROWAVE HEATING POWER TEST

The following test will provide a suitably accurate measurement of the output power of any microwave oven. Variations or errors in performing this test will produce uncertain results. If the line voltage (from the electrical outlet) is low, the magnetron output will be correspondingly low.

Equipment needed:

- Microwave safe container with 1000 mL (1 Liter) gradation.

- Fahrenheit or centigrade thermometer

Procedure:

Pour exactly 1000 mL (1 Liter) of cool tap water into the container. Using the thermometer, stir the water, then measure and record the temperature. For accurate results the water should be about 60 degrees F (20 degrees C).

Place the container on the center of the oven cooking shelf (do not leave the thermometer in the container and remove any metal racks), and heat the water (at full power) for 63 seconds. Use the second hand of a watch, not the oven timer.

After the heating time is completed, immediately remove the container, stir the water, re-measure and record the temperature of the heated water.

Subtract the starting water temperature (step 2) from the ending water temperature (step 3) to obtain the temperature rise.

To determine the output power in watts, multiply the total temperature rise by a factor of 38.75 if you're using a Fahrenheit thermometer or by 70 if you're using a centigrade thermometer.

Hotpoint microwave oven, countertop, model RE964. How many watts is it?


The owner's manual (which you can download here) does not say, but most of their ovens from that era were 700 watts.

Maytag oven needs temp calibration


Take your temp knob off and look in the center of the stem and you should find a small set screw. Using a small precision screwdriver, turn the screw until you see the light come on. (You won't have to turn it far.) Turn it a little at a time, maybe a 1/16 of a turn. Leave your thermometer in the oven with the door closed and at or near the temp probe that is in the oven. This way, you are getting a true reading.
