SOURCE: Oven staying hot a long time after it was turned off

Thanks for your reply. I contacted an appliance repair person I have used before and he told me about turning off the breaker, which I did. He suggested using an oven thermostat to see if it was heating to the correct temperature as a first step. It may be the thermostat, I do not know what the controller is as presented by one of the responders. At any rate I learned that my breaker for the oven is by itself and is not attached to the stovetop which is good. I will have to weigh the cost of replacing a part on a 20 year old builder quality oven with microwave on top to a new one. Any ideas on a new problem free model are appreciated!!

SOURCE: oven not getting hot

The fan oven element needs to be replaced in the Hotpoint 6150 cooker.
Access is by removing the inner rear cover of the oven, there you will see the element.
Replace with a new one.


It is possible the base element is faulty in the top oven of the Hotpoint EW95,
The other possibility is that the high speed grill element is only part working.You need to check both these elements.
If the fan is working o/k in the main oven , but not getting hot, then you need to replace the element.
If it does heat, then it could be a faulty thermostat or possibly selector switch.
Unless you have a good working knowledge of electrics and know how to use a meter, then I would suggest you call some one in.
Plz rate my solution
Thanks.

SOURCE: How to set the temperature on the KitchenAid Superba oven/convect

A separate oven thermometer is absolutely necessary in baking. Something similar to this would be cheap and easy. http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?order_num=-1&SKU=10161738

Or you could go for a digital one with a probe.

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 is burning food and seems too hot

HI. the oven temp sensor is malfunctioning. have it inspected for damage. check the wires leading from the control to the sensor for cuts and damage as well. replace the sensor if these issues with heating persist.

Cake flop in the middle what can the problem be


You should always buy an oven thermostat so you can verify the temperature inside before putting the batter in. I also use magic cake strips soaked in water and pinned all the way around to even out the temperature so that the cake rises the same time on the edges as the middle without the outsides baking too fast. and staying stumpy.

Why do cakes sometimes collapse while baking?


helllo dis.... There are many things that can cause cakes to fall in the middle.... Jumping, etc., around the baking area is unlikely to be a problem except with very delicate sponge or angel food cakes. More likely, cakes fall when the crust appears to be done, but the batter is not baked through the middle. An uneven baking temperature is a frequent culprit; check the temperature of your oven with a separate baking thermometer, and be certain that your oven holds a steady heat through the entire baking period. Some older ovens preheat properly, then cycle off and drop the temperature after 15 or 20 minutes, which causes the uncooked portion of the cake to fall.

Less likely but possible problems could be inaccurate proportions of baking powder or baking soda if the cake is made from scratch. This could occur with cake mixes if sour milk or buttermilk is used instead of regular milk; the additional acid in sour milk requires additional baking soda to rise properly. Eggs that are not beaten properly, or perhaps beaten too much for the type of cake being made, might also cause problems. Joe

I am using an old white westinghouse electric oven to bake a cake. I selected the right temperature which was between 150 and 160 cel. It started but I could hear the sound of a fan. I kept it on for at...


Either the temperature sensor has a problem (shorted so the control thinks the oven is colder than the actual temp) or a relay feeding the bake or broil element is welded shut and causing one of the elements to stay on. If the elements are still heating when the "ON" indicator is NOT lit, then you have a welded relay. You need the control board repaired.

I have an Ariston electric oven that seems to get too hot & burns


You can try going to a lower wattage element. EX: Our oven can take a 2500 - 5500 watage element. The lower the wattage, it won't heat up as fast/hot.Plus it saves on your power bill over time. Go to the Ariston website, or find your element number and check the web for a lower wattage.

Simpson Evolution 904 wall oven cooks very unevenly


I agree, the heating is very uneven in our oven, however, when I calibrated the temperature with a thermocouple, I discovered that the temperature gauge was 25C too hot! That is, if I set the oven temperature gauge to 155C, it was actually 180C inside the oven! Taking this in to account, it is now much easier to cook things without them burning.
