    My bad, I typed before I thought.

    Those two screws mount the control. The temp adjustment is down inside the stem of the control, once you remove the knob.


  • Mark Egan Jan 24, 2009

    The direction you rotate is best figured out with a thermometer inside the oven.

    Let the oven reach the temperature it's going to get, note temperature. Turn control inside stem 1/2 turn, wait about 10 minutes, and read temperature. Note if you turned right or left.

    Next correlate the turn direction and amount with where you want to the temperature to be.

    All of these controls are a little different, so to give you a specific is difficult.

I need to calibrate my southbend model #x436d standard gas oven


If you pull the knob off there is a very little screw in there that you can turn with a small screwdriver. I believe left is increase and right is decrease, but I could be wrong. Very little turns do a lot. You can tell if you are going the right way if the burners get bigger or not. This takes a while so do a 1/4 turn and let it sit for a while, take temp and adjust again if needed.

Electric stove oven burning food?


if your oven is over cooking and or burning everything ,more than likely its your temp.thermostat it is not that hard to replace,before you do that go down to your nearest home depot or lowes or appliance store and get a portable thermostat they usually crome in color,take and set your oven to a temp like 350 for example put your new t.stat inside your oven and keep checkin to make sure it dont go above 350 if it does then you will need to replace the thermostat.to get to it first pull the t.stat knob off remember its the one you set the oven temp.with unplug range pull stove out away from wall so you can get behind it,you will have to take off all the screws that hold your cover panel on the screws are usually 5/16 nut driver.take the two screws off the front right behind where the temp knob is,mark the wires so that you do not forget where they go,, you dont want to hook them up wrong.it can cause alot more problems if they are put on wrong ok now,open oven door and you will see on the inside of the oven a copper wire that goes from the temp.control to inside your ovenall you have to do is take the wire and feed it through the back pull it out and take to your nearest appliance store make sure you write the model number and brand of the stove pick up the new one and put new one back on, put panel back on plug range in,and set temp back to 350 put the portable thermometer back inside oven should be good to start baking again

Oven is off 100 degrees. How to calibrate it?


To Adjust the Thermostat


Pull the OVEN TEMP knob off the shaft. look at the back of the knob and note the current setting before making any adjustment. The knob is factory set wit the knob directly under the pointer.


1. Pull of the OVEN TEMP knob

2. Loosen both screws on back of the knob

3. Adjust lower screw so it moves in the desired direction. You will hear and feel the notches as you turn the knob. Each notch changes the temperature about 10 degrees F.

4. Tighten the screws.

5. Return the OVEN TEMP knob to the oven.


Re-check oven performance and make the necessary adjustments accordingly.

How do you adjust the oven thermostat part# 411506


Look for a small screw in the center of the shaft that holds the oven knob. Use a flashlight to see it. A very small turn on this screw will change the temp 25 degrees so turn in small amounts and test. 1/2 turn at a time or smaller.

Oven Burners not lighting completely


It's the igniters. They increase in resistance as the elements age and decreases the current required to heat the spring element in the gas valve.

Replace both igniters.

Stove to hot burns everything


This is a simple fix as long as the oven is heating properly and the only problem is that the temp seems higher than what the temperature control knob indicates...

Purchase an inexpensive oven thermometer from the hardware store and place it in the center of the oven. Set the temperature control knob to 350 degrees F.

Check the temperature indicated on the thermometer in the oven after 20 minutes. If it's not within 5 degrees of 350, you'll need to adjust the oven's temperature control.

Turn the oven off.

Pull off the temperature control knob. You can usually pull it off by hand, pry it off with a thin screwdriver, or slide a piece of cord up behind it and pull.

Note which kind of temperature control knob you have. There are two types: The first has a screw in the shaft of the knob; the second has an adjustment dial on the back of the knob.

Adjust the temperature with the first type by turning the screw in the shaft with a screwdriver. Turn it clockwise to lower the temperature; turn it counterclockwise to raise the temperature. Turn the screw just a little bit in the appropriate direction.

Adjust the temperature with the second type of knob by turning the dial on the back of the knob. (This dial is held in place with a screw or a clip that will need to be removed.) Raise the temperature setting by turning the dial counterclockwise; lower it by turning the dial clockwise. The notches are typically in 5 or 10-degree increments.

Test the oven temperature again.

Repeat until you're in the right temperature range.

Good Luck!

Calibration


Electric ovens are calibrated behind the temp knob. Pull the knob straight off of the shaft and look at the back of the knob. There should be a metal slide with a scale and a little set screw. Loosen the screw and move the slide in the direction indicated for your needs.
