What needs fixed in my built in Tappen oven, model 12-1263-30, when it is 90 degrees off?


Hello Wendy;

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

The normal operation of a oven is the oven will rise 20-40 degrees above the set temperature and turn off. Then, when the oven temperature drops 20-40 degrees below the set temperature it will turn back on and cycle again. This is true except for the new accurate ovens.

Since you are getting heat your oven heating element is good.

You have a older oven.

Your problem is either the oven thermostat which cost over $200.00.

Now, here are your choices:

1.) Take a chance and purchase the oven thermostat and install it. If this does not solve the problem you can return it less shipping and restocking charges.

2.) My professional recommendation is to put the old girl to rest.
You can:
a.) Go to a Sears Outlet (Scratch and Dent) Store, save a couple of hundred dollars on a new oven and still get a one year warrantee .
b.) Go to a used appliance store.
c.) Go to Habitat Stores - used appliance stores.
d.) Go to Second Chances Stores - Appliances removed from homes that were torn down.

Best of luck,

Peter

The oven cannot keep a consistent temperature. It is mostly about 100 degrees above the selected temperature. My landlord replaced the stove about a month ago and the problem is worse now than it was...


It sounds to me like the oven thermostat is faulty, as this is what controls the temperature.
If you can , get a thermometer and place it in the oven and check the temp against the seting with the thermometer, if as you say it is 100 degrees above setting , then you need to replace the thermostat.

The oven does not heat to the set temperature. It is usually much hotter


You can have the oven recalibrated by a professional OR you can purchase an oven thermometer and check the temperature yourself. Place the oven thermometer in the oven.Set the oven to a specific temperature. When it indicates it is at that temperature check the thermometer. Adjust your setting by that many degrees. For instance, if you set the temp at 350 and the oven thermometer shows 450, then reduce your temperature setting by 100 degrees each time you use the oven.

I bought an oven thermometer and it indicates that the oven temperature is approximately 100 degrees lower than the temperature set on the oven. Is there an adjustment to make so the set temperature is...


Hello,
It sounds as if an element in the oven is not working do check again that the oven thermometer is on same scale as the oven settings farenheit or centigrade.Most likely it is an element fault.
Hope I helped.

Oven doesn't go on.


Hi.


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.


If the part that is not heating is only one element, then you may need to replace the 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.
In this case, selecting only baking or only broiling (depending on what element is faulty), the oven will work normally.

If the oven is a gas oven, then you have no element. In that case if the oven burners are working, replace the temperature sensor.

If replacing the temperature sensor does not help, then replace the oven electronic control.

My oven temperature is 100 degrees hotter than it should be


It will be the sensor inside the oven compartment that is causing the problem.
A new sensor should cure the prob, certainley cheaoer than buying a new oven.
Hope my advice helps you.
