SOURCE: Gas oven won't maintain temp. It turns off after reaching temperature set.

Hi ya mate sorry to hear your having problems with you oven,

The problem wiht your oven seems to ba a faliure of the fsd/ffd, it seems to me that this device is not completey gone but is faulty.

This device is used as a safety feature on gas ovens and is there to turn the gas off to the oven when the flame has failed.

The way it works is that the intial small flame heats up the the phile at the end of the cappliary tube which is connected to a valave which realses the gas to the oven..


what you need is to have it change


hope this helps

SOURCE: Ovens do not come up to set temperature

most common issue wsith these gas wall ovens is faulty ignitors, i would reccomnd replaing the ignitor(s). that being said i wouuld also reccomned a servicer with experience on this model for they can be a more tricky then ohter ranges out there, and the possiblity of "shorting out" adddiont al parts is higher on this model! and no one is currently producing a double self cleaning, full sized gas wall oven, so id hate to see you ruin this one!!!

SOURCE: How to set the temperature on the KitchenAid Superba oven/convect

A separate oven thermometer is absolutely necessary in baking. Something similar to this would be cheap and easy. http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?order_num=-1&SKU=10161738

Or you could go for a digital one with a probe.

SOURCE: My oven burns everything.

Use a 'oven thermometer' in the oven and determine the 'actual temperature' in the oven. Your knob setting is off (not calibrated) and the oven is hotter than the control knob setting.

How to turn on electric frigidaire oven; fgf337gud?


Good Morning Friend,

I understand you want to know how to turn on the oven on your Frigidaire range, model# FGF337GUD. First, make sure you have set the clock. You will do this by pressing the "Clock Set" button and then press and hold down the up or down arrows, until the correct time shows. After you have set the clock, you are ready to turn your oven on.

To set the temperature for your oven, you will press the "Bake" button and three dashes will appear. Press the up and down arrows to change the temperature. Note: The temperature will begin at a default temperature of 350 degrees. Once you have released the up or down arrow, your oven will begin heating to the selected temperature. When your oven reaches the desired temperature, it will beep once.

To cancel the baking function, you will press the "Clear/Off" button.

If you wish to change the temperature after baking has begun, you will press the bake button again, and then change the temperature by pressing the up or down arrows to either increase or decrease the temperature.

I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your air conditioner status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Temperature does not always reach set point of 425 F.


Oven will not hold correct temperature:------- This can be caused if temperature probe not working.Resistance across temperature probe leads at room temperature (70°F) should be approximately 1096 ohms.----------- Other possibility for this problem is :--- Temperature control not calling for heat.When heat is required, there should be continuity between terminals 6 and 7 on temperature control.-----------Inadequate or improper ventilation.Check ventilation hood. Verify draw and make up air adjustment.-----------If all this checked out ok then its calibration problem.For calibration follow this procedure:--
It can be problem with temperature controller. TEMPERATURE CONTROLLER (Standard-Control Models Only) The calibration of the temperature controller should not be changed until sufficient experience with cooking results has definitely proved that the temperature controller is not maintaining proper oven temperatures. Before any recalibration is attempted, the oven temperature should be checked by the following procedure: 1. Remove all trays and pans from the oven. 2. Place a thermocouple or a reliable mercury oven-type thermometer at the center of the middle rack. 3. Turn the oven ON and set the temperature control knob to 400°F. 4. The amber "heat on" light will go out when the oven temperature is reached. 5. Allow three cycles for the temperature to stabilize. 6. Read the thermocouple or thermometer immediately after the light goes out for the third time, and again immediately after it comes on the next time. 7. If the average of these readings varies by more than 10°F from the dial setting, recalibrate by the following procedure. Recalibration should be attempted only by a competent service technician. Use the following procedure to recalibrate the oven: 1. Loosen the two set screws that secure the temperature-control knob to the temperature-control shaft. 2. Remove the knob from the shaft, being careful not to rotate the knob or shaft. 3. Replace the knob on the shaft so that the indicator mark on the knob points directly at the temperature that was measured at the center of the oven. 4. Re-check the oven calibration. ----------- Part number for temperature probe is 1181996 and you can order if from the Southbend service center. -------- If you want the manual and wiring diagram for your oven.Please click the link directly:-- http://www.retrevo.com/search/v2/jsp/mytrevo/myTrevo.jsp?page=man ----------- after you click the link,a page will open in that you fill the 5 letter number.And click the "download now " option.It will ask you to save or discard.Click the save option and download will start.It will take 2 mins to download.Then click the download file to open it.And go through the manual.------------This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

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.

My GE gas oven temperature goes up and down a lot


The Thermostat on the oven might have to be replaced. This part is usually located behind the knob with the temperature settings. There is always a fluctuation in the temperature(usually 5% before the thermostat cuts the burner of and then back on. Other things can also influence oven temperature, like air drafts(usually caused by unrepaired or construction gaps in the wall on back of the range, but more often its the thermostat that need replacing. The following link can provide you with a further description of how the oven works: http://www.partsquik.com/appliancerepaircenter/Gasrange.htm I think you can also purchase your thermostat at that same site.

My Bosch HBN 5605 .0B oven has a 15-20 degree undertemperature when operating on the conventional baking setting - all other settings are ok


I detected a similar problem following the sudden appearance of Err1 in the display. (Oven 4-5 years old, and the grill element failed when it was 3-4 years old). This indicated a temperature sensor problem. My local dealer came with his Thermocouple and confirmed an "under temperature" reading on the standard and baking settings. I agree that the fan setting is probably OK. He replaced the sensor. I monitored the situation for a while and was not happy because an under temperature could be quite dangerous when cooking certain foods, and also causes problems when baking bread.

The location of the oven sensor is also a problem because it is at the top right by the grill which also serves as the top heat source.

I had corresponded with Bosch about this and their response was, frankly, less than satisfactory. In the end I decided to call out their engineer (cost £85-ish) who wired my oven up to his computer. In the end he said that the oven was working as it should be (despite it taking a very long time to actually reach the target temperature of 200C.

In my view of I want 200C, then I should get 200C, not an approximation.

Interestingly the secret info (not in the manual) is that the temperature bar readout does not indicate that it has reached the actual temperature, but may be 90% of the temperature (so if you want 200C you get 180C.

An unsatisfactory solution is to get an oven temperature of the meat probe type and put that in the oven, then you will get a more accurate reading of the temperature. You would need one that goes above 200C (my first one only goes to 200 but I have found another that goes to 250C). Mine is by CDN model DTP482, any good cook shop should stock this.

Replace probe if all else checks out ok. FF Loss of door motor safety switch Replace the oven control (also called clock or ERC). FFF Control error, failed EEPROM Replace the oven control board (also called clock or ERC).

The main control operates a series of software commands, which control the various features and functions of the oven. Each function or operation has a numerical value assigned to it. The numerical values can be added up - this is called the check sum operation. Every time the system is powered up and after each clean cycle the system performs a check sum and compares the value to the value programmed into the software (stored in memory).

An EEPROM check sum error or FFF code occurs when the values differ. If this happens, replace the oven control board (also called clock or ERC).Here is a list of error codes and corrective action that should be taken. Mike

Self cleaning oven


If your unit has such a feature, you can use it.  Get the manual from the company website.  It is located under customer support, generally.  
If your unit does not have a cleaning feature, you cannot do this yourself since the temperature is higher than the oven can be set and the door cannot be locked to prevent injury.
