Question about Kitchen Ranges

Uneven heating in our Whirlpool range


Our Whirlpool RGE 6700 range has been given us problems with baking. For example, pumpkin pies were done on top but the bottom crust was doughy. The Thanksgiving turkey was done on top (legs essentially came right off with slight tug + pop up timer was up), yet the backbone meat and thigh joints were not done... I put in an oven thermometer and temps are significantly higher on the top rack than on the bottom rack. It appears that the bottom heating element is failing. Can I just replace this lower element or should I have a serviceman come out and check for other possible issues. Note, the bottom element was replaced previously (about 7 years ago).

    A repairman came out on last Friday. The bottom element was faulty. He replaced it. Oven now works great!

Can I freeze homemade cheesecake

No. the cheese base will "break" and have a weird texture. Cheesecakes keep for about a week in the fridge. If you need a smaller size, use 1 8 oz brick of cream cheese, 1 large egg and 1/4 cuo of sugar over a graham cracker crust to make 6 cheesecake cupcakes.

Bosch wall oven (electric) heats up but baking 2 pumpkin pies & 1" cubed sweet potatoes took over 2 hours, crust still doughy and not browned, potatoes cooked but did not brown.

Have you checked your elements? They could be going bad otherwise your oven control board is going bad and needs to be repaired. The Repair Shack offers a service which can fix this issue of the problem is in fact the Conteol Board. Check your elements first and then give them a call, they will be able to save you some money on the element(s). Otherwise they can help you get the control boards repaired.

I have a GS773LXSQ O modle Gas range that is a little ove 4 years old. After baking a pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving, I wanted to broil the crust. The broiler would not come on and after turning off the oven...

If it is only 4 years old then yes it has electronic ignition and you should hear a clicking as the oven electronic igniter starts. If not the igniter module is most likely defective. Contact this website (at the link) for repair help and parts. Appliance Parts Accessories Repair Help

While mixing pie crust is the blade to be removed from the bowl or to remain inside? This is the first time I'm attempting to mix pie crust in my food processor and I have misplaced my manual. Many Thanks

you need the blade in the unit in order to mix the pie crust. but do not over mix. its best to do it in short pulse bursts. otherwise the crust will come out resembling fluffy playdough and will not holdtogether during baking
