    It's weird that the oven heats up but not to the temperature you set it to. Mine says it's heated to the right number, but I'll put food in there and it will take 2 hours to bake when it should take 30 minutes. Maybe we should both find an oven repair service to see if they can fix the problem.http://www.jmappliance.com/appliance-rep...

Get an accurate thermometer. Look on the oven control, there will be a calibration screw. It takes a while, but with small adjustments and accurate temp measurements, you can calibrate the control.

SOURCE: oven will not heat to temperature setting

Called a Sears Tech to check it out. He found it was the control board/clock/timer. He said it was the first one he had seen go bad, and was happy I had the part number from your site, as it did not yet appear on his computer.

SOURCE: OVEN WILL NOT COME UP TO TEMPERATURE

Yes there is something you can do. you can close the gap in temp by + or - 30degress by pressing and holding the bake button the display will change to 0 and now you can press up or down to what you want to calibrate it to. when set press start. now it's set. If your temp wonders off again you will have to replace the temp sensor. NOTE: SOME MODELS ARE DIFFERENT IN CHANGING THE CALIBRATION REFER TO THE OWNERS MANUAL IF THIS DOESN'T CHANGE YOUR CAL-SETTING

SOURCE: My electric Kenmore oven over heats no matter how

It appears your thermostat/probe has failed in this instance.

For replacement parts - head on over to PartSelect.com or RepairClinic.com and enter in your full model number for a full parts listing.
I recommend both sites because ...


FixYa has no affiliation with either site - I have been using and recommending them for years - trouble free.

PartSelect has a great schematic database for locating the part on your unit and great "testimonials" for each part that often times includes HOW-TO information.
RepairClinic has pictures of each part they sell and also a great how-to and troubleshooting for basic repairs.


If your unit has never been serviced - there should still be an original service manual enclosed in plastic taped to the inside of the shell.
In the service manual are Error codes, maintenance procedures, and troubleshooting steps you can follow.


Anything too complicated or beyond your scope should be handled by a professional.

If you think you want to tackle the repair - and have gotten stuck on a step - reply to your question and I will be glad to help you out.





Thanks for using FixYa - a 4 THUMBS rating is appreciated for answering your FREE question.

Oven won't heat to temperature


Does it reach the temperature and then back down, or does it take too long to get to your set temperature? Either you have a faulty element or a bad communication error with the main control board.

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.

Hi Maurice.

Circulating is Fan Assisted mode. In this mode the fan kicks in when temperature is reached and runs all the time.

Here an extract from manual.

There is no preheat unless you set temperature. That is why you get the fan from start.

Looking for a manual for Whirlpool BS0801/WH oven


I have a paper copy of the manual - if you need to know anything more than the information below post a more specific question.

The function symbols on Knob F, clockwise from the top, are as follows:
  • 0 = Off
  • Lamp symbol = Lamp Only, no fan, no heating.
  • Fan + Drip Symbol = Lamp + Fan, but no Heating - this is for defrosting.
  • Fan inside a Circle symbol = Lamp + Fan + Oven Heating - this is the normal cooking position. The temperature of the oven is set on the Temperature Knob.
  • Final position = Grill. The temperature of the Grill is set on the Grill knob.
The red indicator light only comes on when the Oven is heating (not the Grill), and goes off when the oven has reached it's set temperature.

The bulb is 25W 230V Type E-14 300 Degree C.

The oven draws a maximum of 2300W so requires a 10A supply.
