Once oven temp is reached the heating element turns off and doesn't maintain temperature

I set temperature at 350. Once the temperature reaches 350 the heating element shuts off and doesn't maintain the correct temperature. Drops 20 degrees in 15 minutes.

SOURCE: oven tempeture lower than setting by 100 degrees

Hey-  Let's fix this thing.  Several things can affect indicated/actual temperature.  The temp probe should test ok across it's lead wires at around 1100ohms. The computer usually shows a fault if the circuit is open, but won't show a code if it hasn't failed completely.  The next suspect is the igniter for the oven burner.  These can become weak with age, affecting gas flow to burner. Testing igniter is not really possible when it comes on and the part is usually replaced.  The regulator is next in line, occasionally causing variable flow to burner.  As you can see, quite a bit to consider.  On site diagnostics is usually required, but this gives you a start.  Installation instructions are available for all parts.     Please acknowledge this post if my info and time spent helps you.  Have more info if needed.  Thanks- Ed

SOURCE: Oven Switching Off

I have a few questions. Does the oven reach the set temperature? How do you get it to go back on? and if you do not set the time do you have the same problem?

SOURCE: eod6630 does not heat to temp

Try and locate the thermostat, check no wires have come off from there. Your old element may have been ok, you may have a faulty stat or a loose wire on one of the connections.

SOURCE: My oven does not heat to the correct temperature.

The thermostat is the cause of the problem, normally the the only cure is to replace the oven thermostat,completely, or alternatively, compensate by setting a lower temperature when cooking.
this will work o/k if it is always the same variation in temperature across the range .

Is it normal that a whirlpool oven current varies between 9.7 and 20 amps


The heating elements on any stove vary in resistance as they heat up and cool down. When cold, the elements offer more resistance thus less current flows. As the coil gets hotter, the resistance drops and greater current flow develops. The thermostat cycles the elements on and off to maintain the temperature measured in the oven, thus the cycling of power used.

Hello there and than you for choosing Fixya
If your oven does not heat, does not heat enough or does not broil, a common cause is a burned out heating element. There are two elements, the baking element on the floor of the oven and the broiling element on the ceiling of the oven. They are about the diameter of a pencil and typically supported by metal stand-offs.
This easiest test you can do is to turn on the oven and observe the heating element. If it glows red, the element is working. When baking, the broiling element may come on to assist with preheating or to maintain the oven temperature. When set to bake, if the broiler comes on, but the baking element does not, the likely cause is a burned out baking element.
When set to broil, the broil element should glow red, but the bake element typically is not used. If the broiler does not glow, it is likely a burned out heating element.
There are other possible causes of these symptoms, refer to our diagnostic page for some other possibilities.
To test the heating element using a multimeter, follow the steps provided below.
  1. Unplug the oven or turn off the power at the breaker or fuse box.
  2. Follow the heating element back to where it goes through the wall of the oven. Remove the bracket that secures the element in place.
  3. Unscrew or unfasten any stand-off supports that secure the element to the oven.
  4. Pull the element part way out to expose the oven's wiring connected the element.
  5. Label the wires and secure them in place so they do not fall back into the cavity.
  6. Disconnect the wires from the element.
  7. Using a multimeter set to x1, touch one probe to each of the element contacts. Expect resistance in the range of 20 to 40 ohms. Infinite or kilo-ohm resistance usually indicates a bad element and it should be replaced.
  8. If the element tests okay, reconnect the wires, slip them back into the cavity and resecure the element.

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!

Intermittent tripping of circuit as oven just reaches temp


Sounds like the oven element is cracked and absorbing moisture when the oven cools down thus causing it to trip. Should buy a new element. there are hundreds of suppliers on the internet.
