    Servicing Oven Thermostats

    If the oven doesn't heat evenly or doesn't heat at all, the oven thermostat may be malfunctioning. First, determine how much the temperature in the oven is off from the control setting. To do this, put an oven thermometer on a center rack inside the oven and turn the oven on for about 20 minutes, with the thermostat set at any range between 300 degrees and 400 degrees Farenheit. If the oven thermometer reads 25 degrees or more lower or higher than the oven control setting, the thermostat should be recalibrated. Here's how to calibrate the thermostat:

    Step 1: Pull off the thermostat knob on the control panel. Behind the knob are two screws holding a round, notched plate. Loosen these screws, but do not remove them.

    Step 2: With a screwdriver, change the notch setting on the notched plate by turning the plate counterclockwise; for every eighth of a turn, the oven temperature goes up about 25 degrees Farenheit. To turn the heat down, turn the plate clockwise.

    Some thermostats can be adjusted by turning a screw inside the control knob shaft housing. To do so, remove the knob and insert a screwdriver into the shaft so that the screwdriver blade engages a screw slot. Turn the screwdriver counterclockwise about one-eighth of a turn to raise the heat about 25 degrees Farenheit. Here's how to test a malfunctioning thermostat:

    Step 1: Test the thermostat with a VOM (multimeter) set to the RX1 scale. The thermostat is located directly on the back of the control knob that regulates the heat. To gain access to the thermostat, remove the back service panel to the control panel.

    Step 2: Disconnect one electrical lead wire from a terminal of the thermostat and clip one probe of the VOM to each thermostat terminal. If the thermostat is in working order, the meter will register zero. If the needle jumps to a higher reading, the thermostat is faulty and should be replaced.

    Step 3: If necessary, replace the thermostat with a new one of the same type.

    If you need to replace the thermostat, follow these guidlines:

    Step 1: Disconnect the terminal wires to the thermostat and pull off the control knob.

    Step 2: Remove the retaining screws. On some ranges, there is a wire running from the thermostat into the oven. This wire operates a sensing bulb that controls the thermostat. The sensing bulb is usually held by a bracket; unscrew this bracket to remove the bulb. Then carefully slip out the wire, the bulb, and the thermostat.

    Step 3: Install the new thermostat using a reverse procedure.

Hi,

Check the AC fuse is blown. If it is blown off replace the same with proper rating.

In order to test the timer/clock on your electric range, the following steps should be taken:

  1. Before repairs or testing can begin you must disconnect the electricity at the fuse panel, at the circuit breaker panel, or by pulling the plug. Make sure the power is off before proceeding. A jolt from 220 volts can be fatal, use caution!
  2. In order to gain access to the timer/clock, first move the range away from the wall and remove the back cover panel by undoing the retaining screws. This will expose the back of the timer/clock. Note: there are many styles of ranges. If this does not describe your range, refer to your owner's manual for detailed access instructions.
  3. In some ranges, you will also require access to the front of the timer clock. This usually requires removal of a front glass panel and it's retaining trim.
  4. To test the timer/clock, set your VOM to the ohmmeter function and set the range to R x 1. Some models of range have a fuse in the clock circuit. Ensure fuse continuity by touching a test lead to each terminal of the fuse. Now find the clock motor leads, label them and remove them from the circuit. Place a test lead on each clock motor wire; there should be continuity. If not, replace the clock.
  5. In some range models, the clock is used to control the timed-bake and/or the self-clean cycles. To check these functions, first remove the wires from the switch terminals (label them first). Now refer to your wiring diagram for the correct terminals to test. Some models have one switch, but others have two sets of switches. Test for continuity by placing your test leads on each terminal as shown in your wiring diagram. Test for the continuity of the switch contacts when the start and stop knobs of the clock (of some models) are pushed in and turned, and when the knobs pop back out. All these tests should show continuity. If not, the timer/clock is defective and should be replaced.
  6. To remove the defective timer/clock, consult your owner's manual for details. On a typical analog timer/clock, the clock knobs must be removed by pulling them off the stems. Then the clock unit can be removed by releasing the retaining clips (or by undoing the retaining screws or nuts).
  7. Transfer the wires from the old clock unit to the new, making sure the wires are on the correct terminals according to your wiring diagram. Now reassemble and test.

Riello 40 gasG900 burner that will ignite but when oven reaches temperature it turns off completely. After temp drops by 4 degrees it turns back on and reheats back to temp then turns off.Why is this?


that would be normal. if it didnt shut off, it would go above the set temperature. the heat is either off or on. it cant me in the middle. it turns 'off' so that the temperature doesnt go too far above 250. when it senses the temperature falling too low below 250, it heats it up again.

I sthere a way to calibrate my oven temperature? It is off by about 35 degrees. Temperature is lower than display.


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

To Adjust the Oven Temperature (do not use Bake or Broil while adjusting the oven temperature): note: Your oven control was factory set in the (Fahrenheit) °F Temperature Display Mode. To change for (Celsius) °C, see page 15.
1. Press & hold the BAKE key pad and release after the display shows the factory temperature setting of 00. note: If the oven temperature has been previously adjusted from the factory setting, the current temperature adjusted value will appear in the display instead.
2. You may increase the oven temperature in 5°F (1°C) increments with each press of the uP arroW pad to a maximum oven adjustment of +35°F (+18°C). You may also adjust the oven temperature downward in 5°F (1°C) increments with each press of the doWn arroW pad (total range of -35°F to +35°F (-18°C to +18°C).
3. If you do not want to keep the display adjustment, press the clear oFF pad before the oven control beeps. This will cancel the temperature adjustment procedure. To start this procedure over again begin with step 1 above OR;
4. If you want to keep the adjustment, wait until the oven control beeps once.
5. The oven temperature adjustment has be accepted by the oven control and the display will return to the time of day.

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!

Oven shuts down before reaching correct temperature


You will need to check the oven calibration using a thermocouple based thermometer(the one you stick in the oven is not reliable). Electric ovens should keep a near constant tempature so if you have it set to 350 the oven should stay around 350 once temp is reached. Now gas ovens are a little different. Most use a on/off thermostat and that means the temp can vary from 320 degrees to 370 degrees to keep an average tempature of 350. So if it is a gas oven you will need to let it warm-up for 10 minutes then start taking the lowest and highest 5 consectutive readings. Then add the 5 reads together and then divide the number by 5 and it should be within 10 degrees of the set tempature. If it is off by more than 50 degrees then you might not be able to get it back to proper calibration. The calibration methods are different for each range and depend on the type of thermostat you have digital(push button controls) or manual(knob). The owner's manual for your range might contain the instructions or consult the manufacture's website for the instructions.
