CornuFe oven and erratic temperatures

I had my CornuFe installed a month ago, and have been trying to figure out my left oven temperature calibration ever since. My problems occur in the bake mode (upper and lower heat) and my top rack can register over 100 degrees above the setting. At 350 degrees, the top initially registered over 550. A serviceman came out and switched my upper coil wires, which helped the problem, but I still cannot trust that left oven temp. It runs a steady 50-75 degrees higher on the top 2 racks than it does on the bottom; and the bottom typically registers about 50 degrees above the setting.
I have noticed that part of the problem may be that the sensor is inaccurate, because the oven temp indicator light stays on way past the set temperature, and therefore, I think the oven is continuing to heat.
I am frustrated by this, and have had a number of conversations with the CornuFe staff. They are very helpful, but keep tellling me that I haven't truly learned to cook on this instrument yet. I know that I have a ton left to learn, but shouldn't I be able to trust that when I turn an oven to 350, it reaches and maintains that temperature? I feel like I spent a lot of money for an oven that is much less trustworthy than the ''typical'' ovens I have had for my entire cooking ''life''. Is anyone else struggling with this issue?

First thing should be to make sure the top selector switch is not set to the optional Pizza element.


Make sure the power to the unit is OFF. Also keep in mind that the following tests should be done by a qualified appliance specialist. To find one near you, contact the La Cornue Service Center @ 877-522-6768


Is this the first time using the oven? If so, make sure the overall power to the range is 240 volts. This can be checked at the main terminal block.


If your model has three indicator lights and the red light is illuminated, then it is likely the hi-limit thermostat has tripped and you will need to reset it. The reset switch is located underneath the cycling thermostat. To access this, you will need to remove the front fascia. Please note: The original safety thermostat is no longer available. Use current safety thermostat (reference: 06ELTS01). If your model has only two indicator lights and the red light is illuminated, that means the oven is heating up. If the red light is not illuminated when the thermostat is set at the desired temperature, then check the hi-limit thermostat.


Power relay/contactor on the back of the unit should be checked. It

Blomberg BEP 906. After power went out a couple


Hello.

When baking or cooking common foods in your oven, it is important that the oven heats to the proper temperature. Otherwise, the food in your oven could become over- or undercooked. The electric ovens are able to be calibrated if only slightly off, however, if the temperature is 25 degrees off or more, you should replace the oven sensor. The oven sensor is the device in the oven the detects the temperature. The control board increases or decreases the oven temperature, depending on the oven sensor reading. Before calling a repair technician, attempt to calibrate your oven or change the oven sensor.

Instruction

1 Turn on the oven and set the temperature to a medium-heat setting, such as 350 degrees.

2 Allow the oven to preheat and then open the door and insert the oven thermometer.

3 Allow the oven thermometer to remain in the oven for a few minutes and the look at the temperature reading, comparing it to the oven temperature setting.

4 Recalibrate the oven if the temperature is only slightly off, or replace the oven sensor if the temperature is greatly off, such as 25 degrees or more.

Calibrating the Oven

1 Turn off the oven to prior to calibrating.
2 Press and hold the "Bake" button until the calibration settings are displayed on the display.

3 Use the arrow buttons or "+" and "-" buttons to adjust the temperature the number of degrees that the oven is out of calibration.

4 Press the "Start" button to save the calibration settings.

Replacing the Oven Sensor

1 Unplug the oven from the wall or cut the power to the oven in your breaker panel.

2 Open the oven door and remove the oven racks.

3 Locate the oven sensor, located at the top-center of the rear oven wall.

4 Remove the mounting screw securing the oven sensor to the wall and then pull the oven sensor away from the wall.

5 Remove the cable connected to the terminal on the rear of the oven sensor and then discard the oven sensor.

6 Connect the cable to the terminal on the new oven sensor and then reposition the oven sensor and secure it using the mounting screw.

7 Replace the oven racks and then restore power to the oven.

Thanks.

Thermostat light flashing and none of the oven functions will work (fan, grill, heat etc)


An oven thermostat is a switch that opens and closes in response to the temperature it senses. It is typically found in the control panel, where a liquid-filled temperature-sensing bulb senses and maintains the internal oven temperature by cycling heat on and off.
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!
  1. Access the oven thermostat, which is located in different places depending on the make and model: On freestanding ranges, access the thermostat by removing the screws that hold the back panel in place at both ends.On models with front-loading controls, remove the panel and tilt it for access. Be careful not to let the wires disconnect from their components. Some built-in models have a removable back splash. Lift the backsplash, rest it on the cook top and remove the screws from the back splash, which holds the rear panel. On wall ovens or eye-level ranges, access the control panel by opening the door and removing the screws that secure it. The screws may be under the exhaust hood or below the control panel. If the control panel is hinged, simply tilt it towards you. On some models both the rear and front control panels must be removed. The screws may be found on the trim and occasionally the trim must be removed.
  2. When testing the thermostat switch contacts for continuity, refer to the wiring diagram and remove only those wires being tested - and only one pair at a time. Test switch contact terminals as per your wiring diagram. If the switch lacks continuity at any of the contact terminal points then the entire thermostat switch needs to be replaced.
  3. Adjusting the thermostat: Test the oven temperature by placing the tester in the oven's center and leaving it for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Record the minimum and maximum temperatures of three cycles, then add those figures together, divide the result by six and you have the oven's average temperature. If the average temperature is more than 25 degrees off, try calibrating the thermostat by following your appliance manual instructions for thermostat calibration. Normally, thermostats are calibrated by pulling the oven's thermostat knob off, turning the knob over and adjusting the calibration ring on the back. If your oven doesn't have a calibration ring you may need to replace the thermostat.
  4. To remove the thermostat: Disconnect the capillary tube and push it through the back oven wall, being careful not to break the flammable capillary tube wire.
  5. Remove the screws that secure the thermostat to the control panel and gently pull the thermostat out, leaving the wires in place.
  6. To install a new thermostat, reverse the disassembly procedure, transferring the wires individually from the old unit to the new.
Hope this was helpful.Thanks for using fixya.

My oven will not warm up. It will just stay at 100 degrees. The gas stove works fine but the oven will not warm up to the desired heat. It worked fine 2 days ago, any suggestions.


My dear friend, i suspect the oven thermostat to be responsible for this. It is a switch that opens when the temperature of a oven is set. Therefore it is bad and cannot work according to the temperature it is set to. The thermostat is located at the control panel where a liquid filled temperature sensor bulb which senses and maintains the temperature of the oven by turning it on and off at every cycle.
First You have to test the thermostat before replacing it. 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.

CANNOT FIGURE OUT HOW TO CALIBRATE THE OVEN. OVEN TEMPERATURE IS OFF 50 DEGREES. INSTALLED A NEW THERMACOUPLE. THIS DID NOT HELP THE PEOBLEM. OVEN WAS PURCHASED IN 1992. THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP.


Without the Model Number I can only give you Basic instruction.

If your machine is Digital the best way to calibrate if find the manuel of your machine useing your Model number.

Some of the digital models : select bake and press and hold the up or down Temp button for 5 Sec to enter the calibration mode.

Some models require you do get the temp to over 400 deg befor you can enter the Calibration mode.

If your machine has a turn knob ... Take the knob off and see if there is a small screw in the center... This is the calibration screw.

Uneven oven temperature


It is possible that the thermostat on your oven needs calibration. However, major errors in temperature may be the result of a bad heating element or a door that doesn't close or seal properly, etc. Confirm that the oven is in otherwise good operating condition before attempting calibration.
Most thermostats have a calibration screw located under the knob. Try pulling the knob off and look at the shaft. Some shafts have a small screw located in the center. Rotating this screw will change the trip point at which the thermostat will turn on and off. This is determined by the sensor located inside the oven itself. Some other schemes allow for the entire control to rotate with respect to the scale. You will need to identify the type used on your oven.

Let me know if this helps.

Oven doesn't maintain temperature


When an oven doesn't maintain the set temperature, first make sure no one is allowing the heat to escape by opening its door. If not, the oven control either needs to be re-calibrated or replaced. To have the control replaced, call an appliance service person.
