Dcs oven wos130 wont reach set temperature on bake


Good afternoon Steve!
The answer may depend a bit on what you mean by 'stops heating'.
  • One interpretation could be 'the heating shuts off, and the oven goes back toward room temperature
  • The other would be that it heats up, but it heats to a certain temp and then stays there. it's just not as hot as it's supposed to be.
If it's the former, that sounds like something is overheating and an interlock is engaging because it's interpreted as 'I'm too hot where I shouldn't be, and I should shut off before I cause a fire. I'd leave that to a better trained service tech.

If it's the latter, then it'll depend on how low it is. If it's way low, then there's a couple possibilities:
  1. The heater element is defective, and even at the full current draw the oven can run, it can't get any hotter than that upper temp. This would mean replacing the element.
  2. The temperature sensor in the oven is defective or mis-mounted. There should be a temp sensor inside the oven cavity. if it's disconnected, or, say, bent out of place and much nearer the bake element then it should be, then the heat coming direct off of the element may be fooling it into thinking the oven is hotter than it really is. this could mean replacing the temp sensor, or just re-mounting it to proper position.
If it's just a bit low, then there could just be a calibration problem. If you look at the manual here
DCS WOS 127 Use And Care Manual Child Safety User Option you can see how to adjust the calibration up or down in temperature to, hopefully, match the oven thermometer you're trying to use as a check.

Hope this helps!
Good Luck

Hi,

If aluminum foil is stuck to the element, you might try turning oven temperature to highest setting for a while to see if the heat will cause the remaining foil to burn off the element. If it is a self-cleaning oven, perhaps the extreme heat will incinerate the foil during the cleaning operation. Another option might be to heat oven at low heat, wear heat proof mitt, and try to gently scrape away aluminum foil. If in doubt, contact your manufacturer and/or repair person.

It is always best to refer to owner's manual for operation, maintenance, and cleaning instructions.

Is there anything else i can help you with??

Popping sound in oven when baking


Is something boiling over? Or could be something loose depending on the frequency of the "pop". It could be a fuel control problem. I recommend your gas company service be called. Or an appliance repairman.

How to fix gas burners


The electronics are controlled by AC using a simple plug usually. If you can locate the plug and reach it you may be successful resetting things by unplugging the cord, wait a minute or two and then plug cord back in. Try the burner controller again. If still doesn't work then controller module may need to be replaced.

Meat does not brown in gas oven


Hello - Try resetting the unit by either unplugging it or flipping the household circuit breaker off. Wait approximately two minutes and turn the range back on. Select a normal bake cycle and if issue continues then the unit may possibly have either a faulty element, bad communication error with the main control board, oven sensor, or mechanical thermostat. I strongly suggest contacting a professional to move forward accurately. They also usually warranty their labor just in case something else may turn out to be the root cause of your initial problem and it does work out better to your advantage.

Can you put the top oven grates in the oven while it is self cleaning


Hi,

The top burner grates are designed to handle direct heat in excess of self clean temperatures.

You can put the grates in to the oven during self clean... but it will not clean them. The baked on residue needs some chemical reaction to break down the reside on them. I would suggest soaking them in an oven cleaner like easy off. Spray them down good then using rubber gloves put them into a plastic garbage bag, spray them again in the bag and close it up. Let them sit and soak for an hour or so then wash them off. This is best done outside so the odors will not be in the home in an enclosed area.

Oven won't come on unless you press bake and immediately hit arrow to 400 degrees. Can this be fixed


Yes, this is most likely a thermostat problem. If you have tried every temp level below 400 and it will not come on until you reach 400 on the dial, then you most likely have a temp sensor switch/ thermostat problem.
I had to assume alot of things here:
1. It is an electric oven.
2. Once you get the oven to start at the magic number and try to dial down from there, the oven turns itself off.
3. It will start up as long as the temp is first set at 400 degrees or higher.

Stove top gas flow and gas oven bake cycle not igniting


This most likely is the solution for the bake problem you have:
Find the bake ignitor (you may need to remove bottom drawer or oven cavity floor to get to the ignitor). Turn on the bake. If the bake ignitor comes on (starts glowing after a few seconds) - check the amperage on the bake ignitor wires when it's on. If the ignitor is a round style - amperage should be 2.5-3A, if the ignitor is rectangular - 3 - 3.6A. If less than 2.5A or 3A respectively - replace ignitor. If the ignitor does not come on - check the voltage on the ignitor, should be the line voltage 110-120v AC. If there is a line voltage on the ignitor and it's not coming on - replace.
Ignitor part numbers for round style ones: 4342528, WB2X9154, SGR403, 5304401265;
rectangular styles: 12400035, WB13K21, WB2X9998, SGR412, NR020, 5303935066, 814269, 9753108.
Ignitors of the same shape (i.e. rectangular) are interchangeable, if you can splice the wires.

Good luck!
