I have never seen a stove that actually heats the oven to what the dial says. they are all hotter or colder, so best is to add or subtract 50 * according to your problem, like under cooking or over cooking. find the sweet spot

Chances are your coolant level is low or an air pocket is present in the cooling system.

Is this a common problem?


THATS BECAUSE IN ORDER TO CONTROL BOTH TEMPS IT USES THE HELP FROM THE FREEZER AND FRIDGE THERMISTORS AND THE COLD CONTROL THERMOSTAT. A BAD DOOR SEAL OR SEALS CAN ALSO CAUSE SOMEWHAT SAME ISSUE? ALSO NEED TO CHECK UR DAMPER CONTROL MAKE SURE ITS WORKING CORRECTLY.

What are the benefits of using a cooking thermometer?


Using a cooking thermometer takes away the need to cut into a piece of meat or chicken to see if it's cooked. Also it reduces the risk of harmful bacteria that come with undercooked meats.

The broiler works but the bake side wont heat up but does warm


Hi There
I have found some stuff for you to read and hope this will help. Let me know how it goes.
It won't bake Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it. It bakes poorly Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:" When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out. You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results. If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component. When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly. If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details. Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

I need a manual for omega oven,model not known.


Hello. If your stove is manufactured by Omega Appliances, it appears that they no longer produce it. That said I can speak to your heating element issue. When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out. You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results. If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

Trouble baking


Sounds like it's running too hot. Check temps. May have a stuck relay on board. Run oven and check to see if bake element is cycling off when it reaches temps. It should stop glowing within
15 minutes from start. If it doesn't you need a relay board most likely.
