Uneven heating in our Whirlpool range

Hello,

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).

Tip

Homemade pumpkin pie spice mix


Have you ever wanted to make a recipe that calls for "pumpkin pie spice" but don't have it in your pantry? It turns out, pumpkin pie spice in made from things that most people already have so there's no need to go out and spend the money on another spice that's just going to sit on the shelf. Instead, you can make your own with stuff you probably already have lying around your spice rack.

Here is all you need to make your own pumpkin pie spice:
  • 4 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons ground ginger
  • 3 teaspoons ground allspice
  • 3 teaspoons ground cloves
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground nutmeg

Take these ingredients and put them in a small mason jar or some tupperware and shake them up good.

You don't need to use exact measurements and can alter to your own taste. My kids hate the taste of ginger so I usually cut it by about half.

On a side note, pumpkin pie spice tastes great sprinkled on your morning coffee or over your late night scoop of vanilla ice cream!

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.

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 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

Maytag oven not getting hot enough


When you put the oven into bake it preheats with the bake and broil element both.  The broil element is most likely your only heat source if it took that long to cook the pie.  Need to verify that the bake element is coming on.  If it isn't then the problem is either in the control or the element itself.  Give me the model # off the sticker on the oven and I can help you do the check out.  In the mean time see if the bake element is getting hot.
