    inside the oven it looks like there are two temperature gages located on top, on each side of the broiler element; looks like they just enter the back panel, no visible screws to take the m out; how do i unpug them to test them? also where is the control board, how d I take it out?


    thank you

    thanks; I see two identical elements inside the oven on top, on each side of the broiler element that look like they could be the temperature sensors, am I right? how about the thermostat, where is that located? how do I check it?

  • guyroche Oct 04, 2009

    the temperature does keep going up and the oven will keep heating until something breaks!

  • guyroche Oct 04, 2009

    thank you; where do I find the thermostat? is it in the back of oven, do I have to pull the oven out and open the back panel? is there any way to test the thermostat before I buy a new one?

Hi,

First you have to check, whether your temperature is getting stable at any pit, For eg: If youset the temp as 200 and if the oven stops at 225, this mut be an caliberation issue with the controls

Under the oven knob is the screw that adjusts the temp. remove the knob and with a small blade screwdriver adjust the temp according to s oven stop temperatur (Just add or remove the excess turning of your knob). then on the back of the knob is a screw to adjust the position of the knob with respect to the marker

If that doesnt Fix, it could be wrong with two things

  • Temperature sensor
  • Thermostat

If 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.

If still you face problem, replace the themostat...

    Thermostat is the device which automatically cuts the current, when the desired heat is reached..

    You thermostat may be faulty, so try replacing the thermostat



    If the temperature continously rises without stopping, it may be a faulty thermostat.



    Vikings do not allow you to calibrate their thermostats. You can only replace the thermostat.

    Mostly viking is popular with this thermostat failure..

    An oven thermostat is a switch that opens and closes in response to the temperature it senses. It is typically found in the control panel, where a liquid-filled temperature-sensing bulb senses and maintains the internal oven temperature by cycling heat on and off



    Before repairs or testing can begin you must disconnect the electricity at the fuse panel, at the circuit breaker panel, or by pulling the plug. Make sure the power is off before proceeding



    Access the oven thermostat,by removing the panel and tilt it for access. Be careful not to let the wires disconnect from their components.



    When testing the thermostat switch contacts for continuity, refer to the wiring diagram and remove only those wires being tested - and only one pair at a time. Test switch contact terminals as per your wiring diagram. If the switch lacks continuity at any of the contact terminal points then the entire thermostat switch needs to be replaced.



    To remove the thermostat:


    • Disconnect the capillary tube and push it through the back oven wall, being careful not to break the flammable capillary tube wire.

    • Remove the screws that secure the thermostat to the control panel and gently pull the thermostat out, leaving the wires in place.

    To install a new thermostat, reverse the disassembly procedures (Step 7 above), transferring the wires individually from the old unit to the new.

    i have mentioned how to test it..



    One small correction to find thermostat




    • On freestanding roven, access the thermostat by removing the screws that hold the back panel in place at both ends.

    • On models with front-loading controls, remove the panel and tilt it for access. Be careful not to let the wires disconnect from their components.

    • Some built-in models have a removable backsplash. Lift the backsplash, rest it on the cook top and remove the screws from the backsplash, which holds the rear panel.

    • On wall ovens or eye-level ranges, access the control panel by opening the door and removing the screws that secure it. The screws may be under the exhaust hood or below the control panel. If the control panel is hinged, simply tilt it towards you.

    • On some models both the rear and front control panels must be removed. The screws may be found on the trim and occasionally the trim must be removed.

    Please choose appropriate model as you have

Hi. this is a simple fix here. There is a temperature sensor located inside the back panel of your oven. this sensor is resistance based, and it transfers actual oven temperature, via resistance signal. The control board interprets this signal as actual true temperature, through logical convergence.

The actual temp sensor has failed. Simply replace the sensor if the wire harness is not affected or worn. I would advise to check for loose connection between the control and actual sensor. Check the sensor housing, as well, for damaged and welded contacts. replace the sensor if all is connected well with no visible faults.

NOTE-You can test the temp sensor by using a multimeter set toX100 or any near setting will do. Any resistance registered will constitute a viable sensor. if resistance is visible through the meter readings, this will confirm that the sensor is not the issue, and the control is faulty.

Door is locked after self cleaning


Most ovens with self-clean cycles have a door lock to keep things closed when it ramps up the the extreme heat levels for cleaning. Usually, the door will stay locked until the thermostat sensor says that the oven is back down at or close to room temperature. If you just finished the cleaning cycle, you'll likely need to wait a while longer.

Where is the thermostat on range WFE540H0AW located?


The oven should still be under warranty so you should be on the retailers case where you purchased it as they are liable for warranty claims. The simmerstat which you call the thermostat is the part that the temperature knob is attached to. They pack up fairly regularly and aren't expensive or hard to replace but definitely should last more than a year and be replaced under warranty. Give the shop where you bought it hell!

Frigidaire convection oven stopped working after self clean


Hello Margaux K - The unit needs to be reset. The temperature had tripped the internal sensor of the unit. This usually has to be done by a professional since the back panel needs to be taken off and the power reset inside.

When I turn on the oven there is a clicking sound coming from the control unit. Stopped when the oven heated up. Do I need to be concerned? Does this mean something is going wrong? I have the Kenmore...


If everything is working ok don't worry .

It is probably just the thermostat 'cycling' in and out then stopping when it is up to temperature.

How long to run self clean on viking professional


The "Self Clean" will run for quite a while up to 4 hours I believe, during this time, the stove heats up to about 900 degrees!! and during this time the Door is automatically closed via special locks. It will allow you to open once it is finished, it should "Signal" this event.

Hi,

Do you see any Error Message on the Display?

If not, then it should not be a Concern. More often this could be Thermal Fuse on the Back of the Unit ( On Most Models ) will stop the Broil and Bake from Turning ON. You would just start a bake cycle and the temperature will sit at 100 and something degrees and never raise.appliance.

Let me know, once you check the same.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

OVEN will not heat


KitchenAid KEBC107KSS does not heat hot enough and does not heat evenly. When the temperature is dialed higher, it burns the cookies. When the convection fan is on, it has a 'cooling effect' so the temperature never reaches the proper level. Is this problem repairable? Or is this a thermostat issue? Thank you for your help!
