Whirlpool Electronic Gas Range temperature adjustment?

I have a Whirlpool electronic gas range and my oven temp is about 25 degrees below the set temperature. Is there a way for me to adjust this myself? If so how do I go about it?

    some ranges do have a temp adjustment, I will need to know the model # of your unit to locate the correct procedure if available

Why doesn't it heat to set temperature?


Hello. In most ovens with an electronic control, the temperature is regulated by 2 things--the sensor and the oven control board. The sensor is simply an electrically resistive device that changes resistance as the temperature increases or decreases. It is connected to the main control board by 2 wires(just a "pigtail") and the main board is supposed to be calibrated to adjust properly. Most control boards have a built-in program by which you can adjust the calibration +/- 35 degrees. If your oven is outside that range, and you're sure that the sensor is good, the connections are good, etc., then the oven control board temp control circuit has gone bad. Keep in mind, when you turn on an electronically controlled oven, the first time it heats up is USUALLY hotter by about 50 degrees--this allows the floor, walls, and ceiling to reach proper temperature. This is called the initial spike. In gas ovens, the user must wait approximately 8-10 minutes AFTER the oven beeps to cook anything. In an exposed-element electric oven, the user waits approximately 10-15 minutes after the beep. In the hidden bake element models, waiting 20-25 minutes after the beep is normal!
Also, keep in mind, ovens can have 60 degree temp swings higher and lower(as long as the midpoint is close to the chosen temp) I hope I've helped you!

We have a 2-year old Viking gas range (model VGCC5304BCC) and lately the oven temperature has beeen running about 25-40 degrees higher than the selected temperature. I cannot find a way to calibrate or...


use a digital thermometer with a probe inside the cavity, normal preheat is 30 mins to 350, wait until the 3rd cycle to see what temps are in the cycle, record high , low temps add and divide. plus or minus 10 are in scope. ex 350 on at 340 off at 360 will avg 350. depending on the serial and age, there is no calibration unless your Electronic thermostat would be suspect. Hope this helps.

How to adjust oven temperature?


Typically, if there is no LCD display, the oven gas knob has the adjustments on the back of it. Just back off the screw and adjust it 10 degrees at a time, using an oven thermometer to verify accuracy.

Maytag mgr5765dqd temperature problems


Unfortunately, Maytag is now a division of Whirlpool, just one of many. I don't know your range but if it does not have electronic controls, the adjustment is located within the shaft of the oven temperature setting knob. The slotted screw is fairly deep in the shaft and you will need a small flat-blade screw driver with a slim and long blade. If the oven has control electronics, this adjustment will be located on the main board with the rest of the controls and this is normally located in the upright top section of the range.

Temp on oven is not correct


Good Evening.


I would make sure that the conversion kit was the correct kit for your stove. Also, if it is not heating properly I would call the gas company and tell them the conversion did not work and they need to double check their work (at no charge). If everything is in order proceed to the next step below.


You can try removing the Oven Temp control. There is an adjustment on the knob which will vary the temp + or - 75 degrees F or so.

Procedure: Preheat your oven for 350 degrees F. Give it a good 1/2 hour to 45 minutes and then pull the knob off (usually held on with a set screw) You will need a thermometer that will go up to 500 degrees (I use an electronic one but you can use any kind as long as it is within the ovens temp range. If the oven is underheating simply turn the oven control stem to a higher setting, say a 50 degree incrament. Wait another 1/2 hour and measure temp inside oven. Keep in mind when you open the oven door it affects recovery time, etc so 30 minutes between a measurement and adjustment should suffice. Once you have adjusted the temp control to your target temp of 350 degrees look on the back of the knob and see if there is a stop adjustment. There is a chance the temp control knob could be setup differently but the same philiosphy/procedure will be similar.- the adjustment could be on the stem itself instead of the knob.

Also keep in mind that the oven temp will fluctuate from high to low as it tries to adjust to the temp it is set at. That is why it is very important to give the oven time to cycle low to high when you incrament the temp control. Hope this helps and good luck! Gary

Oven Temperture adjustment


On my Epicure, you are supposed to press the bake selector pad then press the + button to set the temperature to 500 degrees or higher.  Then hold the bake button for 5 seconds.  The temp display is replaced by 00.  Release the bake pad and use the - or+ buttons to adjust the temperature in 5 degree increments.  When finished push cancel (or just do nothing).  Good luck.  I tried this and my oven kind of went haywire.  It decreased the temp by much more than the 10 degrees I had set it too.  May be something else wrong with my oven though?
