Pop off the oven knob and look at the back of it. sometimes the are two screws that you can loosen and fine tune your temp settings. if the temp is way off i would say you need a new thermstat. its a little bit off work but you could definetly do that yourself and save some money on repair costs.

I have a Jenn Air JJW9830DDP double oven electric, and the temperature in the oven is about 100' less than what it reads on the display. I tested the temp sensor and it ready 1073 ohms. Any s


Well, your temp sensors can still be bad. If not, there's always a new control board you buy!

However, I wouldn't drink water from that oasis without making ABSOLUTELY sure I'm not seeing a mirage.

The only common denominators between your upper and lower oven temp readings is the firmware and the oven thermometer you are using to visually check the temps.
What type of thermometer are you using to check your oven temperatures with?
If it's not a digital thermometer used specifically for testing ovens, you might just be leading leading yourself astray.
You need a calibrated thermometer. If I don't have a calibrated digital thermometer on me, I use two or three oven thermometers (the dial type) and average the readings.
It's the only way to be as close as possible with a digital probe.

If you have thoroughly verified that your oven is in fact not reading the correct temperature, then you can adjust it +/- 35 degrees F via your oven's control panel.
To adjust the oven temperature:
1 - Press Setup pad.
2 - Select the down arrow to scroll to the next screen.
3 - Select Temp Adjust using the Quickset pads.
4 - Select upper or lower oven (select models).
-"Set temperature offset using the Upper Set Knob" is displayed.
5 - Enter the desired temperature change using the Set knob.
The temperature can be increased or decreased up to 35 degrees.
The temp. change is displayed at the top of the window.
6 - Press the Set knob to accept the change.

Now, if you are still worried about the temp. reading being off, replace both the upper and lower temp sensors. That's all you can do besides replace the main board.

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.

Oven temperature is inaccurate and takes a long time to heat to proper temp. I have replaced thermostat with no improvement.


To Adjust the Thermostat


  1. Touch the BROIL HI/LO and BAKE pads at the same time for 3 seconds until the display shows SF.
  2. Touch the BAKE pad. A two digit number shows in the display.
  3. Touch BAKE again to alternate between increasing and decreasing the oven temperature.
  4. The oven temperature can be adjusted up to (+) 35°F (19°C) hotter or (-) 35°F (19°C) cooler. Touch the number pads the same way you read them. For example, to change the oven temperature 15°F (8°C), touch 1 and 5.
  5. When you have made the adjustment, touch the START pad to go back to the time of day display. Use your oven as you would normally.

Bosh double oven. Temp is 100 degrees cooler on top oven, any ideas? both on bake mode


The fact that top oven is 100degrees less than bottom is no relation between the two; they are controlled by independent stat controls and if the only way you know if the temp is correct, is to set a temp (such as 350 degrees) and put a thermometer in that oven to see if the thermometer is with in 25degrees of the control settting. You need to do this for the bottom oven as well to see if it is aslo within 25degrees of the setting. then you make adjustments for each unit independently. If the controls are mechanical (knob), then the adjustment is within the control (usually by removing knob and serching for a small screw). If the controls are electroonic, then you need to search the circuit board to see if there is adjstments mounted on the board. Goodluck,Macgivor

Doesn't get as hot as it should


the range has two thermostats one for each oven located under the oven knobs. put a meat thermometer in the oven and adjust the thermostat screw with a small flat screwdriver untill the oven turns off at the correct knob temp.
registered on the thermometer.
then adjust the knob screw on the back of the knob to match that temp setting.
clockwise is hotter counterclockwise is cooler
