Oven only heats up to 100 degrees, but the temp on the oven says 350. Do you think it is the sensor or the control board?

Right now, it's a toss-up. The only way to separate the two possibilities is to first find the nominal value of the sensor, then measure it.

Oven temp fluctuates


It is normal for the thermal device to turn on and off. Obtaining a steady temp is not always possible. When setting a temperature on some ovens, they have what is called a tolerance point. That means a set temperature has a range of a few degrees up or down. At the Down point, the oven is triggered to energize the coils and bring the interior of the oven back to the settings desired. The other factor is opening the oven and allowing cool air to enter, or in some cases a leaking door seal allows air to enter and heat to escape.

What's an f1 and f2 code mean???


Hello,

The F1 code means that a button on the touchpad is stuck

The F2 means that the oven tempature was at least 100 degrees over what the temp it was set to was

the F1 will come sometimes if the ribbon connection on the touchpad doesnt fit well into the control board and other times it comes because the touchpad is defective

the F2 comes up because the control has measures the temp and thinks that when it set as lets say fro instiance 350 degrees the control thinks the temp ahs reached 450 degrees(100 plus over) typically the thing wrong when the F2 comes up is the oven sensor at room temp to be between 1060-1100 ohms

However if you are getting both error codes at the same time the only thing common to both is the oven control and if both at the same time i suspect the control is the problem

GE free-standing electric range Pre-heat oven temp is about 50 degrees less than what is set (i.e. set digital display to 400 and over only reaches about 350). Is there an adjustment that can be made to...


We have a new GE Range and the signal beeps at about 100 degrees below the temp which we have set . The dealer replaced the sensor and the control circuit, but there was no change.
A service tech from GE came to our house and explained that the new ovens have a bottom heating element which is covered and therefore heats the lower part of the oven more slowly; but the exposed upper element heats more rapidly and the sensor is located near the upper element. We were advised to wait for about 15-20 minutes after the beep before placing the food in the oven. Judging from the number of comments found online, this seems to be a feature of newer ranges.

If you are monitoring the oven temperature with an analog style thermometer you may actually be ok, but seeing the thermometers slow reaction time.
Some newer ovens actually do pre-heat beep prior to reaching temp in an effort to conserve eelectricity.
A good home test is to try your oven at several different temps to see if there is any variation in internal temperature. Try it one day on 300, the next at 375 and another day at 450. Give your analog style thermometer time to catch up (usually just about 15 min) and leave it on for a half an hour to see if the temp maintains.
Also Beware of aluminum foil AND THE NEW OVEN LINER MATS as they can alter oven performance bay absorbing and blocking the ovens natural heat radiation and convection air flow currents that happen in all ovens, not just convection models.
Another interesting fact is that older ovens used a thermostat in them that operated much like your thermometer and was very slow to react making the oven typically about 100 degrees hotter than where the customer set it. This was just a fact of life before the advent of electronic temperature management and became noticeable when people began trying to bake older "hand me down" recipes in the newer ovens with less than stellar results.
You can mimic the older oven performance by preheating the oven about a hundred degrees higher than called for and after it reaches temp, re-set it to the correct temperature and put the items in right away.
If you find your temperatures fluctuating ask your servicer to replace first the temp sensor and as a last resort the control board as this part is usually pretty expensive.
Good Luck with this!

Oven not heating up


Problem with oven sensor or control board (ERC). Oven sensor at room temperature should have resistance about 1080 Ohms, and it rises with temp rise.

Oven won't reach proper temperature and hold


If the element glows its ok , if you have replaced the sensor with a new one it can only be the control board. in some cases you can adjust the temp. through the control , it should list directions to do so in the manual. Good luck

Oven temp set at 350. only heated to 310 after 1 hour! Set to 390 before reached 350. What to do?


Use an oven thermometer Try to figure out if by setting it to 390 it will maintain 350 accurately. (A 25 degree change while it cycles is normal. It will probably overshoot before going off and undershoot a little before cycling on.) If so the thermostat has just drifted. Pull off the control know and look usually there is an adjustment on the shaft to change the temp showing on the knob. set it up 50 degrees. If the knob can't be changed just know that you have to adjust yourself. If it won't maintain a steady temp the thermostat is bad and will need to be replaced. The thermostat will be over $100 it may not be worth it. If this is a computer controled unit (pushbutton temp selection) the sensor needs to be replaced. This is a lot cheaper than a thermostat.

Re: oven


the temp probe ( rod sticking out of rear wall inside oven ) should ohm out at 12-1300 ohms at room temp. the other possible cause is the heat relay on the control board is bad .this does not display a fault code.
