SOURCE: My oven runs about 100 degrees hotter than the dial says

Check the temperature select knob. On the inside of the knob there should be an adjuster.

The temperature probe may be the faulty component since this is an integrated machine.

SOURCE: oven temp gets hotter than control indicates.

Alot of the thermostats are adjustable and can be recalibrated but when they act like this, it is best to replace them. It is just a matter of time before it quit all together. Electronic units are some what different.
Let me know what you do and I'll give you a hand in getting it going.

On most oven temperture controls, if you pull the knob off there is an adjustment screw down in the shaft turn counterclock wise?? to lower setting. Good luck

It will be the sensor inside the oven compartment that is causing the problem.
A new sensor should cure the prob, certainley cheaoer than buying a new oven.
Hope my advice helps you.

Hotpoint ew81n cooker. Non working oven thermostat has been replaced. The cooker temperature is hotter than the dial reading. What can I adjust to make them the same?


Hi.
Unfortunately, the oven thermostat is non adjustable.
However, it is normal for oven temperatures to vary by + or - 10% of the setting.
This is acceptable, so to compensate, set the temp 10% less of the required temp setting.
Make sure you have the sensor fitted correctly inside the oven compartment
Make sure that the thermometer is accurate if you are checking the temperature with one.

Oven runs much hotter than set temperature. Usually 50 degrees hotter than what it is set at, but can go over 100 degrees higher.


Sounds like you need a new oven thermostat or get an oven thermometer and by experimentation draw up a new heating range for the oven dial.

The oven cannot keep a consistent temperature. It is mostly about 100 degrees above the selected temperature. My landlord replaced the stove about a month ago and the problem is worse now than it was...


It sounds to me like the oven thermostat is faulty, as this is what controls the temperature.
If you can , get a thermometer and place it in the oven and check the temp against the seting with the thermometer, if as you say it is 100 degrees above setting , then you need to replace the thermostat.

I have a frigidaire stove that heats to 50 degrees hotter than the know setting. Can it be adjusted to read correctly?


There is a calibration method to adjust the oven thermostat plus/minus 35 degrees if it is a digital display. The method varies depending on the model range. This calibration method is used to adjust the thermostat if it is not keeping proper tempature. For example if you are setting the oven to 350 and the actual temp it is keeping is 325 then you could use the calibration method to adjust it plus 25 degrees to correct the temp. Just so you know electric ovens will keep a pretty even temp but gas ovens will vary by 40 or more degrees to keep an "average" temp. For example the burner will come on when the oven is 330 degrees and turn off at 370. 330+370 then divide by 2=350. So a oven thermometer may not show you the temp you set it at in a gas oven but does not mean the oven temp is off.

My hotpoint BD31 fan oven's temperature is about 30 degrees higher than the setting on the dial. What's the possible cause of this? Could it be that the fan mechanism isn't working?


If the fan was not working, then it would not get very hot at all as then fan forces the hot air around inside the oven.
Most manufactures allow a tolerance of plus or minus 10 degrees variation in temperature from the temp setting., so setting at 200 would give you 220 with 10 % plus, or 180 with 10 % minus, so yours is outside the acceptable range.
You can compensate by setting the thermostat 30 degees lower than normal, or the more expensive option, is to have a new thermostat fitted.
In my experience, compensating for the variation in temp, is a satisfactory solution.
However, if it gets worse, then your only course of action, is to replace the stat.

Trust this answers your question.

The oven is 100 degrees colder then the read out


press bake and set to 550degrees. within 2 seconds press and hold the bake until 2 digits show on display, then release bake. the digits displayed is the amount of degrees the oven is off from original factory setting. If it reads 0, it is at original factory setting. you can now adjust by pressing the up button for a hotter oven, down for lower. it can only be done for 35 degrees. when done, hit clear/off. this will help to close the gap. if you are using an inexpensive thermometer, it can take a very long time for it to read the actual temp in the oven.
