Oven Keeps Shutting Off

My LG range was having problems where the stovetop burner and/or oven would just shut off. In the case of the oven, sometimes it would fail during the preheat stage, while other times it would shut off after preheating. The control panels were replaced on the range twice. LG finally decided to replace the entire unit. While the stovetop burners now seem to work without problem, I'm still having trouble with the oven shutting off. I thought that maybe there's a problem with the electrical wiring, but I can turn all 5 stovetop burners on at high power at the same time, and they work fine, so it doesn't seem like a house wiring problem.

SOURCE: unable to preheat

You need to replace the temp. sensor. It's not reading correctly. These occasionally go when you use the self clean as the range gets up as high as 900 degrees. Replace it and it will solve the problem

SOURCE: LG Electric Range Oven Keeps Shutting Off

When you say "Just shut off" do you mean the circuit breakers would trip, or fuses would blow? If so, I would have an electrician check that the circuit is properly fused/breakered and wire sized for the amount of power required by the oven. If the installation directions say it needs a 50 amp service, it better be a 50 amp service.
If shutting off is just something within the oven, then get LG back out again, and let us know of what they say is wrong.

SOURCE: Whirlpool Super Capacity 465 Electric Range not heating properly.

Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:"

  • When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

    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.

  • When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly.

    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.

I have a Kenmore 790.96224 electric range and the burners and oven do not work, but the clock is working. how do i fix?


Try replacing ONE stovetop burner and see if the new one works. If it does, replace more stovetop burners. If the new ones all work, replace the oven burners.

If that first replacement stovetop burner STILL doesn't work, don't replace any more. Instead, check (or have checked) the circuit breaker for the range. It may get power from a second source to power the clock.

I have a Viking VGSC366 6B all gas range. The oven keeps shutting off when I'm baking somethimes for a long time. Sometimes i can turn it off and back on again but sometimes it won't come right back on....


When the oven igniter(s) get too old, they don't pass enough current to the gas valve to either open it or keep it open. If that's the case, they need replacement. They may still glow but they're no longer operating properly

My ge electric range keeps on beeping f2


The F2 error code means: For an unknown reason, the oven temperature has exceeded a preset threshold.

This is GE's recommendation:
Before Calling Service, you can try the following...

Sometimes shutting off the circuit breaker that the range or oven is connected to for 30 seconds will clear the fault, error or function code, however there are some cases when further service may be required. If you would like to schedule a service appointment, please contact GE Consumer Service at 1-800-432-2737 or schedule a service appointment on-line.

GE does recommend turning the range or oven off at the breaker until you have it serviced. It is okay to cycle the breaker and turn the range or oven back on long enough to use the surface units. Be sure to turn the range or oven off at the breaker again when you have finished.

DCS 4 burner plus griddle Range..oven doesn't heat


This happened to my DCS when the Hot Wire Relay went out. It isn't an expensive part, but finding someone that knows what needs to be replaced, and then can replace it is hard. My oven also did the opposite and continued to heat without shutting off, and it was once again the hot wire relay.

Oven Doesn't Work but stovetop burners do..


Most common problem is a bad oven ignitor.  If yours looks this way then it should be replaced.  This will most likely solve your problem.

Stove keeps shutting off by itself


HI I have a different brand, but this same thing was happening to our oven, I had to have a repairman replace the temperature sensor in the oven. Apparently it was reading the temperature as like 300 degrees higher than it actually was so it was shutting off (I guess as a safety mechanism). Hope this helps. Good luck.
