SOURCE: Preheating

hummmm this sounds similar to what is happening to me. I am praying someone will have a solution, I don't want to have to explain to my daughter who is going to be 4 tomorrow, why I can't bake her cake.

SOURCE: Oven temperature only gets to within 20-25 degrees of temp. set

next to last page in your manual


Adjusting Oven Temperature
Oven temperature has been factory calibrated and tested. If
oven consistently over or under cooks food, adjust thermostat.
Oven temperature can be increased or decreased 35°F. To
avoid over adjusting oven, move temperature 5°F each time.
1. Push BAKE pad.
2. Press + pad until an oven temperature greater than 500°F
shows in display.
3. Immediately push and hold, approximately 5 seconds,
BAKE button until “00” appears.
4. Press + or - arrow pad to adjust oven temperature.
• To increase oven temperature (for a hotter oven), Press
pad until a positive number appears in display.
• To decrease oven temperature (for a cooler oven),
Press pad until a negative number appears in display.
5. Press OVEN CANCEL pad to save adjustment.
• Setting is saved if power fails or is disconnected.

SOURCE: My oven burns everything.

Use a 'oven thermometer' in the oven and determine the 'actual temperature' in the oven. Your knob setting is off (not calibrated) and the oven is hotter than the control knob setting.

SOURCE: oven temperature does not regulate

From the symptons you describe, I would say that the oven thermostat is faulty, and in need of replacement.
Make sure your thermometer is o/k by checking it against another one, or boil some water, and check the temp of the boiling water, this should determine if your thermometer is o/k.
Hope this helps.

Why does my oven thermometer read less than the temperature the oven is set at?


An oven doesn't go to the temp selected. That is the average temp. If you set it to 350, it may drop to 300, then to 400, but will maintain an average of 350. Without knowing your model #, it is hard to say. Some have anticipator (that anticipates the temp and controls the heater and the thermocouple that is trying to keep the temp steady. Some models have an adjustment at the oven switch (rear) that can be adjusted for temp up or down.

Temp shows 400 but oven is at 300


Is it continues to heat up then its working fine...if it continues to heat pass 400 then your have a thermostat problem and the oven is out of control. I do believe that the display is not an actual reading of the oven temperature, instead it is a reading of where the operator has set the temperature to . I have yet to see an oven with a actual reading temperature display.

Kitchenaid Superba Electra oven doesn't reach set temperature. When we set the temperature for 400, it only gets to 375. Is there any way to fix this?


sounde like a temperature probe going bad or thermostat out of adjustment .ask your parts dealer if your oven uses a temperature probe or thermostat.

My G.E. Profile would turn on then immediatley turn off. It would finally work if you kept turning it on. Then I started getting the F2 code everytime I turned my oven on. A repairman told us the...


Hi. The F-2 code will appear if the control board is sensing an abnormal oven operating temperature above 615F-630F, during bake, or above 915F-930F, during the self cleaning stages.

If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature.



NOTE_
The most common oven sensor should be approximately, 1100 ohms when at room temperature. The others may be close to as follows:
100°F - 1143 ohms
200°F - 1350 ohms
300°F - 1553 ohms
350°F - 1654 ohms
400°F - 1753 ohms
500°F - 1949 ohms

Pizza, banana bread, etc. doesn't get done in the middle.


some oven temperature dials are adjustable by pulling knob off,turning a bit and pushing it back on in a different position.use an oven thermometer to determine the accuracy of your control knob.adjust knob or make note of difference between dial setting & thermometer reading.i.e.knob is at 350* thermometer says 300* set knob to 400* to achieve an oven temp of 350. could you E-mail me a slice of banna bread?

Preheat takes forever


http://www.applianceaid.com/nuker.html
click the link  Oven temp sensors sense the temperature is the oven cavity and the temp sensor changes resistance, this change in ohm resistance tells the oven control what temperature the oven cavity at and tells the control to shut off the element or turn it back on. The most common temp sensors used today ( *not all ) are approx 1000-1100 ohm resistance at room temperature ( 70�F )
Some ohm readings and there temperature:
Degrees F    -   Resistance
            100 - 1143 ohms
             200 - 1350 ohms
             300 - 1553 ohms
             350 - 1654 ohms
             400 - 1753 ohms
            500 - 1949 ohms
