Try creating a wind block using bags etc around the fire AT A SAFE DISTANCE!! As well you can cook "under" a tarp that is hung at a angle, like a leanto: http://i12.photobucket.com/albums/a229/03Term/lean-to-step9.jpg
Just make sure you have it setup to block the wind!

Oven temp fluctuates


It is normal for the thermal device to turn on and off. Obtaining a steady temp is not always possible. When setting a temperature on some ovens, they have what is called a tolerance point. That means a set temperature has a range of a few degrees up or down. At the Down point, the oven is triggered to energize the coils and bring the interior of the oven back to the settings desired. The other factor is opening the oven and allowing cool air to enter, or in some cases a leaking door seal allows air to enter and heat to escape.

Electric stove oven burning food?


if your oven is over cooking and or burning everything ,more than likely its your temp.thermostat it is not that hard to replace,before you do that go down to your nearest home depot or lowes or appliance store and get a portable thermostat they usually crome in color,take and set your oven to a temp like 350 for example put your new t.stat inside your oven and keep checkin to make sure it dont go above 350 if it does then you will need to replace the thermostat.to get to it first pull the t.stat knob off remember its the one you set the oven temp.with unplug range pull stove out away from wall so you can get behind it,you will have to take off all the screws that hold your cover panel on the screws are usually 5/16 nut driver.take the two screws off the front right behind where the temp knob is,mark the wires so that you do not forget where they go,, you dont want to hook them up wrong.it can cause alot more problems if they are put on wrong ok now,open oven door and you will see on the inside of the oven a copper wire that goes from the temp.control to inside your ovenall you have to do is take the wire and feed it through the back pull it out and take to your nearest appliance store make sure you write the model number and brand of the stove pick up the new one and put new one back on, put panel back on plug range in,and set temp back to 350 put the portable thermometer back inside oven should be good to start baking again

Whirlpool gas oven is taking three times as long to cook something,what is wrong?


have you checked with an oven type thermometer for 350 degrees against the setting of 350 degrees,if its off very far then its the oven temp sensor in the upper left middle or right rear wall of the oven thats bad it looks like a small pencil type rod 2" to*' long it merely unplugs off the oven s control panel in the rear,you can test its resistance also to get an idea if it is your culprit,otherwise the oven element could have a hot spot in it and not letting all the current thru to properly heat the element,it will be dis-colored in that area

What's an f1 and f2 code mean???


Hello,

The F1 code means that a button on the touchpad is stuck

The F2 means that the oven tempature was at least 100 degrees over what the temp it was set to was

the F1 will come sometimes if the ribbon connection on the touchpad doesnt fit well into the control board and other times it comes because the touchpad is defective

the F2 comes up because the control has measures the temp and thinks that when it set as lets say fro instiance 350 degrees the control thinks the temp ahs reached 450 degrees(100 plus over) typically the thing wrong when the F2 comes up is the oven sensor at room temp to be between 1060-1100 ohms

However if you are getting both error codes at the same time the only thing common to both is the oven control and if both at the same time i suspect the control is the problem

I have a frigidaire stove that heats to 50 degrees hotter than the know setting. Can it be adjusted to read correctly?


There is a calibration method to adjust the oven thermostat plus/minus 35 degrees if it is a digital display. The method varies depending on the model range. This calibration method is used to adjust the thermostat if it is not keeping proper tempature. For example if you are setting the oven to 350 and the actual temp it is keeping is 325 then you could use the calibration method to adjust it plus 25 degrees to correct the temp. Just so you know electric ovens will keep a pretty even temp but gas ovens will vary by 40 or more degrees to keep an "average" temp. For example the burner will come on when the oven is 330 degrees and turn off at 370. 330+370 then divide by 2=350. So a oven thermometer may not show you the temp you set it at in a gas oven but does not mean the oven temp is off.

Oven shuts down before reaching correct temperature


You will need to check the oven calibration using a thermocouple based thermometer(the one you stick in the oven is not reliable). Electric ovens should keep a near constant tempature so if you have it set to 350 the oven should stay around 350 once temp is reached. Now gas ovens are a little different. Most use a on/off thermostat and that means the temp can vary from 320 degrees to 370 degrees to keep an average tempature of 350. So if it is a gas oven you will need to let it warm-up for 10 minutes then start taking the lowest and highest 5 consectutive readings. Then add the 5 reads together and then divide the number by 5 and it should be within 10 degrees of the set tempature. If it is off by more than 50 degrees then you might not be able to get it back to proper calibration. The calibration methods are different for each range and depend on the type of thermostat you have digital(push button controls) or manual(knob). The owner's manual for your range might contain the instructions or consult the manufacture's website for the instructions.

G E oven temp fluctuation


No, that is just fine. As a matter of fact, older ranges often had 50 to 60 degree swings in temp. Your oven temp (assuming your thermometer is dead on accurate) is 347 + 365 / 2 = 356 degrees when set at 350. I never mess with ovens which are within 10 degrees of set temp. (when checking the temps, make sure to take the readings after the oven has cycled on and off at least three times, and use a good digital oven calibration thermometer)

Temp on oven is not correct


Good Evening.


I would make sure that the conversion kit was the correct kit for your stove. Also, if it is not heating properly I would call the gas company and tell them the conversion did not work and they need to double check their work (at no charge). If everything is in order proceed to the next step below.


You can try removing the Oven Temp control. There is an adjustment on the knob which will vary the temp + or - 75 degrees F or so.

Procedure: Preheat your oven for 350 degrees F. Give it a good 1/2 hour to 45 minutes and then pull the knob off (usually held on with a set screw) You will need a thermometer that will go up to 500 degrees (I use an electronic one but you can use any kind as long as it is within the ovens temp range. If the oven is underheating simply turn the oven control stem to a higher setting, say a 50 degree incrament. Wait another 1/2 hour and measure temp inside oven. Keep in mind when you open the oven door it affects recovery time, etc so 30 minutes between a measurement and adjustment should suffice. Once you have adjusted the temp control to your target temp of 350 degrees look on the back of the knob and see if there is a stop adjustment. There is a chance the temp control knob could be setup differently but the same philiosphy/procedure will be similar.- the adjustment could be on the stem itself instead of the knob.

Also keep in mind that the oven temp will fluctuate from high to low as it tries to adjust to the temp it is set at. That is why it is very important to give the oven time to cycle low to high when you incrament the temp control. Hope this helps and good luck! Gary
