If your problem is temperature do this;
Press "options" Then press "6". Then press "3" to increase or "6" to decrease temp.
Then press "start" to end the calibration.

If you recently used self-cleaning you could have a thermal overload fuse problem.

Whirlpool gas oven is taking three times as long to cook something,what is wrong?


have you checked with an oven type thermometer for 350 degrees against the setting of 350 degrees,if its off very far then its the oven temp sensor in the upper left middle or right rear wall of the oven thats bad it looks like a small pencil type rod 2" to*' long it merely unplugs off the oven s control panel in the rear,you can test its resistance also to get an idea if it is your culprit,otherwise the oven element could have a hot spot in it and not letting all the current thru to properly heat the element,it will be dis-colored in that area

Is it dangerest when your oven beeps f2


Typically an oven beeps when the interior temperature macthes the temperature where you set the dial. This is an audible signal to that fact and particularly helpful when you need to pre-heat the oven. For example it you want to cook something at 350 degrees, you set the dial at 350. When your oven reaches that temperature it beeps to let you know. Some cooking directions tell you to preheat your oven. In that case, when you set the dial to 350 and wait for the beep...you know you are safe to start your cooking process because the oven is now pre-heated to the temperature you set. If your recipe requires a pre-heated oven, and you don't wait for the beep, your taking a guess at what temperature you're cooking your food. Additionally, if you want to know what the internal temperature of oven is and your oven is heated...you simply turn you dial setting and listen for the beep. Again, if you set your oven at 350 and you want to know how hot your oven is... slowly turn the dial setting. If the oven beeps at 275 then that's how hot your oven has gotten. To let it finish heating to 350 just reset the dial and wait for the beep.

I have a frigidaire stove that heats to 50 degrees hotter than the know setting. Can it be adjusted to read correctly?


There is a calibration method to adjust the oven thermostat plus/minus 35 degrees if it is a digital display. The method varies depending on the model range. This calibration method is used to adjust the thermostat if it is not keeping proper tempature. For example if you are setting the oven to 350 and the actual temp it is keeping is 325 then you could use the calibration method to adjust it plus 25 degrees to correct the temp. Just so you know electric ovens will keep a pretty even temp but gas ovens will vary by 40 or more degrees to keep an "average" temp. For example the burner will come on when the oven is 330 degrees and turn off at 370. 330+370 then divide by 2=350. So a oven thermometer may not show you the temp you set it at in a gas oven but does not mean the oven temp is off.

Generally, most units are properly calibrated at the factory.  Get an oven thermometer for a few dollars at Ace and place it in the oven and run it at a particular temperature...say 350.  If the thermometer is off more than about 15 degrees after warm up and stabilization...another 10 minutes, most manuals have a way of altering the thermostat settings to compensate.

Could be a couple things. If your machine is actually failing either a control board or an oven sensor.

Also measuring the temperature can only be done by a tech unless you have a special tool. Oven thermometers are inaccurate. Plus most ranges should vary temp between 50-75 degrees unless has a feature or the more recent ones keep it between 15-25 degrees.

Try the biscuit test, buy some biscuit, brand not important, i just say pillsbury. Cook exactly as recommended on package. If results are a little overcooked or a bit undercook try a feature called Adjusting the oven temperature or Calibrating the oven. This can be done by following the instructions in your book.

T3 electric wall oven - Temperature set buttons


I had the same problem. The entire control panel had to be replaced. That included the display, keypad and all the hardware behind it.. it's one integrated unit. Luckily I had the extended warranty, otherwise it would have cost close to $400.

Amana Convection oven not controlling temp


I have just checked the baking guide in the manual and have found that it may not be us after all. (Maybe this is why they telll us to read the whole manual. Well, I never have) According to the cooking time for Baking, the range is very extensive. For example, an angel cake at 350 could take from 28-50 minutes, buscuits at 375-400 could take 8-16 minutes, layer cakes at 350-375 could take 25-40 minutes, pound cakes at 325-350 could take 45-70 minutes and fresh pies at 400-450 could take 35-60 minutes. Basically, the baking directions on the box means absolutely nothing to use Amana oven owners. We have no choice but to cook our food or baked goods until they are cooked, whenever that may be. :) Linda

Gas oven not heating to temp


The fault is either the capillary has fallen away from back or it is a faulty thermostat.
