Often the temp gauge is the culprit. To check temps, allow to preheat for 15 minutes. Monitor the highest temp reached after burner shuts off and record. Then monitor lowest temp before burner cycles back on again. Average out readings. Example, if high is 355 and low is 345, average temp is 350. Do this for 3 cycles and average out.

The exhaust smoke at the top vent of my char broil 30" digital electric smoker reads 245°, but my panelis set at 225°. Can i recalibrate temp settings


Most smoker manufacturers consider a swing of 20 degrees either way acceptably within range, so there's not necessarily a problem there. Remember that your smoker will measure differently depending on where the temp probe is. Heat rises, so it makes sense that it may be hotter at the top, especially if the ambient temperature isn't too cold. Put a cheap oven thermometer on your rack and use that to accurately read the temp where your meat will be.

Bottom oven isn't heating to desired temp. Considering swapping the heating elements to see if one is faulty - thoughts?


try thermostat first. verify heating elements operational, if so check if tstats are same. swap if so, If not jump out tstat and see if higher temp achieved.

Temperature fluctuates in bake setting. Temp on display does not match real oven temperature.


as long as your measured temperature is within 15-25 degrees of shown temp, then it should be ok. remember the temp in the oven will be different from top to bottom.

DT92E room stat appears to be very inacurate with its room tempreture, our normal room temp is about 22c we have to set the stat at 25c to get heat and the stat cuts out after a temp rise of 1c


All thermostat is calibrated @ difference of 2 degree.to cut in and cut off.
In heat mode, if you keep 25 and your room temp 23. it will start at the end of 24 or beginning of 25 degree.Cut off also @27 degree beginning. Please check Tips & how to do's in Fixya

Oven does not maintain a consistent temperature


Is this oven gas or electric? If it is gas then it can be normal to see 30 to 50 degrees difference in tempature. The tempature in a gas oven works on the average tempature. For example: The oven tempature may rise all the way up to 370 degrees. Then the burner will shut off. And then the tempature can drop all the way to 330 degrees. Then take 330 and add that to 370 then divide that number by two and the average tempature will be 350. If your oven is electric then the tempature should be much more consistant but can have a 10 to 15 degree variance. Also the standard oven tempature guage that you put in the oven or even the temp guage built into the oven are not very accurate. We us a Fluke meter with a thermocouple to calibrate an oven. So to check your oven for proper tempature regulation you will first need to let the oven pre-heat for about 15 minutes. Then place the thermocouple in the center of the oven. If the oven is electric the take a temp reading every 5 minutes and average them out. If the oven is gas then you will need to take a temp reading when the tempature reaches it's highest and lowest points. Take at least 5 consectutive readings and average them out. You should get an average within 10 degrees of set temp(350 degrees). If it is off by 35 degrees or less you can usually caluibrate the thermostat back to proper temp. This procedure can be different for each range model. If it is more than 35 degrees off or you are getting irratic readings then the thermostat or thermostat components might need to be replaced.

Oven won't heat up at all.


broiler on top of oven?? if so it might have a second ignitor that is working. Most units now with gas have an electric ignitor to start gas ovens. What they do is send electric current through an electric "wire", when enough current is flowing through wire to open gas valve the wire is hot enough to ignite the gas flowing over it. When you turn on the oven look at the burner and after 1 imute or so you should be able to see an Orange glow in bottom of oven if not I'm sure its the ignitor, if glows then probably oven valve is bad. I'd guess ignitor because most oven makers use this ignitor to mantain a warming temp (around 100 degree's) so since your display doesnt register over inital "start" temp of 75, i'd bet ingitor not coming on at all

My mechanic in our town did a quick computer check. Car computer indicated a low level of antifreeze, he topped it up, cleared all messages off the car computer and said to watch the the heat guage for any further irregularities. I'll keep an eye on it, love the car, great mileage fun to drive.

Inacurate temp


The follow suggestions apply if you are at sea level, or a bit above. If you are in the mountains, you'll have to compensate for altitude issues. You need an accurate thermometer to be spot on. One way is to use an electronic thermometer. Another is to set the oven to 217 degrees, insert a small pan of water into the oven, with a metal tray or pie tin on a lower rack to catch spills and see if it eventually boils. If the water didn't boil, you can adjust the temperature upward in  5 degree steps (see your owner's manual for details). If you've lost your manual, you may be able to go on-line and get a pdf copy of your manual.If the water does boil, you know your oven is accurate within 5 degrees. You can then proceed to re-do the experiment at 212 degrees, if you wish. Then you may use the data to adjust the oven temperature.
