Question about Kenmore 40494 / 40495 / 40499 Electric Single Oven
My electric stove and electric bake operate fine, the problem I am having is with the electric broil, it does not heat up hot enough to make it worthwhile to use with certain foods.
I have never gotten the broiler to make the fish fillets get past the taste of my wifes family, my wife, and my son to satisfy them whenever I am going to broil a steak which I like chared on the outside on the fat but I can only get it a little brown I need to have it deep brown cooked. I like my baked potatoes realy cooked but if I try to make it, all I get are steamed baked potatoes. The list goes on and on but I don't know if you are ready to hear all my complaints. My baked potatoes are most important to me so please tell me if there is a way to adjust this broiler so that I could get it hot to what I need. also the temperture gauge goes up to 500 if thats all it will go up to then it is not hot enough for cooking
a good heads on fish. there once was an Hawaiin chieftain that insisted that the fire in his cooking hole get to at least one thousand degrees for about ten minutes and that would be proper enough for a cookout to cook his fish. I would at least think that six to seven hundred degrees would be proper for me and that I could get my potatoes and my steak to become edible.
My name is Joe R and thats all I have to say about the problem for now

Generally, most units are properly calibrated at the factory. Get an oven thermometer for a few dollars at Ace and place it in the oven and run it at a particular temperature...say 350. If the thermometer is off more than about 15 degrees after warm up and stabilization...another 10 minutes, most manuals have a way of altering the thermostat settings to compensate.
