If the oven is gas fired you will not see a constant temp due to the way the oven works. If you set the oven at 350 on a newer gas oven that has a on/off thermostat you will see temp ranges from 320 to 370 when operating normally. Some computer controlled ovens I have seen go all the way up to 450 when set to 350 then level off and keep proper temp. The way a gas oven is calibrated you wait 10 minutes then take the lowest temp and highest temp for five cycles. Then add all those numbers up and divide them by 5 and that should give you the average temp. Plus or minus 5 degres of target temp is fine. The best way to take the temp is by a themocouple temp gauge like on a Fluke meter. Just remember if you have a temp gauge in the oven the temp will not always read 350. If your oven is electric it should maintain a much more even temp on the gauge.

Bake does not get hot enough


Look in your manual --- the temperature is preset at the factory but ----It may have changed somehow. You can see how to adjust your temp by using the instructions (trouble shooting page) or call the service center. It is an easy fix. If your oven is older, it may be that long copper wire in the back that is your temperature sending unit. You can get that replaced and that may be your problem solved

Blomberg BEP 906. After power went out a couple


Hello.

When baking or cooking common foods in your oven, it is important that the oven heats to the proper temperature. Otherwise, the food in your oven could become over- or undercooked. The electric ovens are able to be calibrated if only slightly off, however, if the temperature is 25 degrees off or more, you should replace the oven sensor. The oven sensor is the device in the oven the detects the temperature. The control board increases or decreases the oven temperature, depending on the oven sensor reading. Before calling a repair technician, attempt to calibrate your oven or change the oven sensor.

Instruction

1 Turn on the oven and set the temperature to a medium-heat setting, such as 350 degrees.

2 Allow the oven to preheat and then open the door and insert the oven thermometer.

3 Allow the oven thermometer to remain in the oven for a few minutes and the look at the temperature reading, comparing it to the oven temperature setting.

4 Recalibrate the oven if the temperature is only slightly off, or replace the oven sensor if the temperature is greatly off, such as 25 degrees or more.

Calibrating the Oven

1 Turn off the oven to prior to calibrating.
2 Press and hold the "Bake" button until the calibration settings are displayed on the display.

3 Use the arrow buttons or "+" and "-" buttons to adjust the temperature the number of degrees that the oven is out of calibration.

4 Press the "Start" button to save the calibration settings.

Replacing the Oven Sensor

1 Unplug the oven from the wall or cut the power to the oven in your breaker panel.

2 Open the oven door and remove the oven racks.

3 Locate the oven sensor, located at the top-center of the rear oven wall.

4 Remove the mounting screw securing the oven sensor to the wall and then pull the oven sensor away from the wall.

5 Remove the cable connected to the terminal on the rear of the oven sensor and then discard the oven sensor.

6 Connect the cable to the terminal on the new oven sensor and then reposition the oven sensor and secure it using the mounting screw.

7 Replace the oven racks and then restore power to the oven.

Thanks.

I own a spectra range Model # JBP30B0B4WH The problem is that the oven temp, is off about 15 degrees how can I adjust it? Roy


This is from page 13 of your manual:

To Adjust the Thermostat
Put the Oven Temperature knob in
the OFF position.
Press and hold the HOUR +/– pads for
5 seconds until the display changes.
Before display changes back, press
the HOUR +/– pads to increase or
decrease the temperature in 5
degree increments.
The oven temperature can be adjusted as
much as 35°F. or down as much as 35°F.
If the oven adjustment is set cooler
than the factory setting a minus sign (–)
and the adjusted temperature will appear
in the display.
Wait several seconds for the control
to automatically set and return to its
previous setting.

Erratic oven temperature


The ignitor is probably weak and not relighting when it needs to. Replace the ignitor.

Oven temperature low


It sounds to me like you are using the convection oven. When you are using the convection oven it will heat 25 degrees lower due to the circulation in the oven. This is normal.

How do I calibrate the oven temp?


Oven Temperature Adjustment Option for the MSG5770
If you think the oven should be hotter or cooler, you can adjust
it yourself. To decide how much to change the oven temperature,
set the temperature 25°F higher or lower than the temperature
in your recipe, then bake. The results of the “test” should
give you an idea of how much to adjust the temperature.
To adjust the oven temperature:
1. Press the BAKE pad.
2. Enter 550° by pressing the number pads “5, 5, 0”.
3. Press and hold the BAKE pad for several seconds until 0°
appears in the display.
4. Press any number pad to change the temperature. Each time
a pad is pressed, the temperature changes by 5°F.
• Press repeatedly to reach +35°F. Continue pressing
to reduce the temperature up to -35°F.
• If the oven temperature was previously adjusted, the
change will be displayed. For example, if the oven
temperature was reduced by 15°, the display will
show -15°.
5. When you have made the adjustment, press the
CANCEL pad and the time of day will reappear in the
display. The oven will now bake at the adjusted
temperature.
NOTE: Do not change the temperature setting more than
10° at a time before testing the oven.
It is not necessary to readjust the oven temperature if there
is a power interruption. This adjustment will not affect
broil or clean temperatures.

Temperature setting


The higher the number, the colder the fridge/freezer. You should just adjust 1 number per 24 hours per the manual instructions.
