Check that both elements are working, and that there is 240 VAC being supplied to the oven (one of the two breakers has not tripped, or one of the two fuses has not blown.).

When I press the Bake Button it only heats to 175 degrees instead of 350. Using the temp up Button the maximum heat is 260 degrees. How do I return to the proper settings?


Hello Jim;

My name is Peter. I am a retired Sears Home Services/A&E Factory Service field service appliance technician.

The information in regards to your model number does not match any known range. The model number is on a metal plate on the face of your oven when you open the door.

There are several components that effect the control of your oven temperature.

1.) Is your oven electric or gas?
2.) If electric do you see any sparking on the heating element?
3.) Does your broiler work?

I really do not know what you have. Give me the model number or call me @ 443-306-1362 and I will try to help you.

Hotpoint oven won't heat above 250 degrees broiler works fine as well as the stove top


either its the oven sensor rod located at the top of the ovens cavity,or your bake element could be getting a hot spot which is when it gets a discolored spot in the element and can no longer pass sufficient current to heat the oven past 250 degrees

Hi,
If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...

Ge jsp42 electric range ..Oven heats up very slowly..sometimes can take one hour to heat to 400 degrees..Stove top also slow..


Check the voltage at the outlet. It should be 208v or 240v. check by putting meter probe into the 2/3 slots. NOT the U shaped,or round looking holes.Check one to another. Check tag on range for voltage of range. If you have 208v at the outlet and range is 240v the oven will take forever to heat, it is not getting the power it needs. If the tag says 230v either will work. On the oven tag it will say either 1ph, or 3ph. If it says 3ph you outlet should have the voltage mentioned above between ALL 3 SLOTS! If you get 120v when testing any slot, you have only 1ph of power. Keeping it simple, the ph, (or phase,) between the outlet and oven have to be the same.

I have a frigidaire oven model # PLEB30S8CCB won't get above 290


The coils should glow red when working. If the lower (bake) element does not glow it may be burnt out. Some ovens cycle the bake and broil elements during preheat and that mey be why you are getting some heat.

Dacor epicure electric oven


On my Dacor oven whenever I use the self cleaning feature it trips the breaker and the oven doesn't heat up. It can be reset, but you need to take off the front panel and reach way back for the red reset button.
