Oven Temperature rises above setting

My electric oven, Frigidaire FEF353CATA, does not seem to stop heating when it gets to temperature (it overheats), but the temperature on the read out does not go above the number I set it at.
I was going to replace the temperature probe but someone on this site says I would see an error code if that was bad and I have no error code. Where would the error code be anyway?

    If there was an error code where would it appear, in place of the time or in place of the temperature or some place else?

    One local parts guy wants me to replace the temp probe, another guy says that if it is the ERC then I just threw $50 away on a probe I didn't need. That's why I am trying to get some good extra opinions

    I took out the sensor and it read 1090 ohms at room temperature. I put it in boiling water and the ohms went up to 1240. I guess that means it works and it's the ERC that is bad. Before I took everything apart I did a test. I set the oven to 225 and put an oven thermometer inside. Within 20 minutes the oven thermometer read over 400, but the digital temp setting said 225.

You may or may not see the error code.
The temp probe is less expensive and is most likely your problem.
If you choose to replace it and the problem remians your ERC will have to be replaced.

    Often a defective probe causes a defective ERC.

    It will not be money wasted. It may be money saved if it works with the existing ERC.

    If you are handy with a volt/ohm meter disconnect and check the oven sensor. If it reads below 900 ohms or above 1200 ohms it is bad.

    If not the ERC is bad.

Hello Ally;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You may not have a problem. Normally your oven will rise about 40 degrees F. above the set temperature and then shut down, until the oven temperature falls 40 degrees F. below the set temperature, then the oven turns back on.

Your oven temperature is controlled by you oven thermocouple.

You also have a high temperature limit switch, which turns the fan on when you go too far above the set temperature to vent the oven. This may be bad.

How to turn on electric frigidaire oven; fgf337gud?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know how to turn on the oven on your Frigidaire range, model# FGF337GUD. First, make sure you have set the clock. You will do this by pressing the "Clock Set" button and then press and hold down the up or down arrows, until the correct time shows. After you have set the clock, you are ready to turn your oven on.

To set the temperature for your oven, you will press the "Bake" button and three dashes will appear. Press the up and down arrows to change the temperature. Note: The temperature will begin at a default temperature of 350 degrees. Once you have released the up or down arrow, your oven will begin heating to the selected temperature. When your oven reaches the desired temperature, it will beep once.

To cancel the baking function, you will press the "Clear/Off" button.

If you wish to change the temperature after baking has begun, you will press the bake button again, and then change the temperature by pressing the up or down arrows to either increase or decrease the temperature.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your air conditioner status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

My oven seem to heat more on one side


Why is the oven temperature incorrect?

The oven temperature control is usually controlled by a thermostat that uses a capillary and liquid filled bulb. When the bulb's liquid gets heated up, it expands and puts pressure on a diaphragm which opens and closes a switch that controls the gas to the burner. Just set the dial to what you need the temperature to be. Over time, it is possible for your thermostat to lose its calibration. Sometimes, the thermostat sensing bulb comes loose from the holder. If it is out of place, the thermostat may be getting faulty readings. If this is the problem, re-aligning the bulb properly will take care of this problem.

Digital display models use a sensor to control temperature. If this is faulty, replace it. Other ovens use a mechanical system to control the temperature.

On many models, you can adjust your oven thermostat using a small screwdriver. The adjusting screw is located on the thermostat valve stem. Remove the knob and you'll see the screw underneath it. You want to turn the oven on and run it through at least two cycles while watching a calibrating thermometer in the oven for high and low temperatures. Adjust the screw as necessary to fine tune the temperature.

Some models don't have an adjustable thermostat, and you will have to replace the thermostat if you want to resolve the problem.
The oven sensor: works with the oven control board to regulate the oven temperature. If there is an oven temperature problem, this sensor might be defective. The sensor can be tested by using an ohm meter. As temperature rises, the resistance measurement also rises. The manufacturer of the oven sensor determines the correct resistance, Oven temperature problems can be caused by other things, but this is one of the common causes.
Beware on some models now most of these ovens they are electronic and they are integrated into the control itself
some different sensor ohm readings at room temp. approx 16 ohms at room temperature and at 350?F it is 29~33 ohms.

Teperature i snot rising above 100, why?


Assuming your Thermador is electric, and it is only warming up a little, this is usually one of three things:

1. Heating element - with oven power disconnected, check that the elements resistance is in spec. Usually around 20 ohms.

2. Thermistor - this senses the temperature of the oven. Again, check the resistance. Depending on your model, it should be around 1050ohms at room temperature.

3. Electronic Control Board. These can be rebuilt quickly and reliably at www.fixyourboard.com. Some are still available to buy online.

Hope that helps

The oven does'nt seem to be able to heat up above 150, the fan is working, the bottem half of the oven does'nt seem to heating up. Is this fixable or do i need a new oven?


Hi.

If the part that is not heating is only the bottom element, and the top element is heating regularly, then you may need to replace the lower element.
Before replacement the element can be tested removing it from the cavity and reading Ohms at the element terminals, with a multimeter set at Rx1. Disconnect power before removing the element.

If both baking and broiling element do not heath above a certain temperature instead, then the part to be replaced is the temperature probe, still located inside the oven cavity.

Regards.
