I would suspect the burner switch needs replacement.

Dcs oven wos130 wont reach set temperature on bake


Good afternoon Steve!
The answer may depend a bit on what you mean by 'stops heating'.
  • One interpretation could be 'the heating shuts off, and the oven goes back toward room temperature
  • The other would be that it heats up, but it heats to a certain temp and then stays there. it's just not as hot as it's supposed to be.
If it's the former, that sounds like something is overheating and an interlock is engaging because it's interpreted as 'I'm too hot where I shouldn't be, and I should shut off before I cause a fire. I'd leave that to a better trained service tech.

If it's the latter, then it'll depend on how low it is. If it's way low, then there's a couple possibilities:
  1. The heater element is defective, and even at the full current draw the oven can run, it can't get any hotter than that upper temp. This would mean replacing the element.
  2. The temperature sensor in the oven is defective or mis-mounted. There should be a temp sensor inside the oven cavity. if it's disconnected, or, say, bent out of place and much nearer the bake element then it should be, then the heat coming direct off of the element may be fooling it into thinking the oven is hotter than it really is. this could mean replacing the temp sensor, or just re-mounting it to proper position.
If it's just a bit low, then there could just be a calibration problem. If you look at the manual here
DCS WOS 127 Use And Care Manual Child Safety User Option you can see how to adjust the calibration up or down in temperature to, hopefully, match the oven thermometer you're trying to use as a check.

Hope this helps!
Good Luck

I have a Chef Ceran Cooktop Model EHC64oU with four elements. The problem is that it doesn't seem to cook anything on a low heat. It stays on low for a few minutes and then the the temperature increases...


I am assuming having looked up the model that you have a glass top range. These ranges use a thermostat to regulate cooking temperature, and when they go bad you will either suffer from erratic cooking temperature or have no heat at all. The best solution I can think of is to replace that thermostat.

Whenever I cook cream soups in my stainless steel pots, they burn on the bottom. I watch them very closely and just have the heat on medium, but they always seem to burn. I recently bought a glass pot to...


I'm assuming this is an electric stove, since that's what the picure shows. Most electric stoves turn the heating element on and off to regulate the temperature. On high the element is on almost all the time, on low it's off most of the time. The problem is that when it's on, it's on at full power, and sometimes this is enough to scorch things like milk based creme soups.

You can do two things:

First, try using a double boiler. This will put water in the lower pan and help keep the heat lower than with a regular pan. You could also try to find a pan with a very thick bottom, and try that. It might work better.

I cannot adjust the temperature on the elements of my stove top.


Hello Skyemahan,

I work on stoves with various problems all the time, and have never encountered a problem exactly like yours. You may get other answers, but here's my two cents worth: When I don't trust a stove, I replace it. Period. Hopefully, your's is old and you're ready for a new one. A new stove is much cheaper than a house fire.

My Viking VECU105 electric cooktop has one burner which will not regulate the temperature. It can be turned on and off with the control knob, but after that, there is no temperature control. Any ideas on...


It will need either a dual infinite or infinite switch, If the burner has an inner an outer element then it requires the dual.

Firstly turn power off at breaker.

The unit needs to be removed from the cut out and the cover removed from below the swtichs. the knob taken off and the secureing screws removed, then take note of the layout of the wiring and the poistion of the switch, then swap the wires, reassemble test and then re-install

Turn front element on and back element comes on also


I ordered a new Cartridge, cause the back element burned out. Maybe it will fix the problem.

Dual Element


check underneath the element, you may have something preventing the element from gihting up. if you didn't find anything, then it is time to get a new element.

Can't control temp of one element, is either high of off, nothing inbetween


- The infinite switch for the controller likely needs to be replaced, this part can be ordered from your nearest Jenn-air parts dealer
