Temperature is stuck on 350 Degrees

I can't change the temperature anymore. I can only bake on 350 degrees, no more, no less. What is the problem?

SOURCE: Oven will not heat past 300 degrees (on bake command)

Remove the bottom plate on the stove which is likely help in place by a couple of bolts at the back. Remove the plate & inspect the bake element underneath. It is probably melted or broken in some area. It it does need replacing unplug the stove from the wall & remove one of the back panels at the back of the stove which access the wiring at this height on the stove. Disconnect the element.
Installation of new element is the same but in reverse.
Good luck!

Replace the oven temperature sensor.
Take your model number to any appliance parts store for a replacement sensor.

SOURCE: Oven not heating to correct temperature

Replace the oven glowbar ignitor. It is too weak to keep the gas valve open.

SOURCE: Can't set temps above 260 degrees

check in your owner's manual for the section on setting your control to fahrenheit or celsius. Then check to see if your control is set to celsius.

Whirlpool gold oven


One must preheat the oven to the desired baking temperature. If the oven is turned on and the food immediately put in to bake, it will take longer to bake the first batch than the second and subsequent batches, because the oven need a few minutes to heat up.

In other words, the oven isn't at 350 degrees the instant you turn it on. It takes about 15 minutes for the oven to reach 350 degrees. I hope this helps.

Oven not heating to desired temperature


You will have to place a amp meter over one ignitor wire and turn the oven on to bake.
If the amp draw is 3.3 amps or less,replace the ignitor.

When set to bake eg: 350 degrees the audio alarm will indicate it's reached temp but the oven is 50- 75 degrees lower. Must wait another 15 min for it to reach the proper temp. Have tried to adjust the off...


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!

Maytag oven overbakes or burns bottom of cookies, biscuits


Try this first, if the temperature is off contact me.
Put an oven thermometer at the center of the oven and set the oven to 350 degrees F.
 
Check the temperature indicated on the thermometer after 20 minutes. If it's not within 5 degrees of 350, you'll need to adjust the oven's temperature control.
