You need to check the thermostat in the oven. Go to your manufacturer's web site and download the technical manual for your stove. There should be a troubleshooting section in the manual. If not, and you are somewhat handy...

1. Disconnect the power from the stove.
2. Locate the thermostat and jumper it out.
3. Reconnect power to the stove and turn on the oven.
4. Wait a few minutes and see if the temperature goes above 300 degrees. If it does, replace the thermostat. If it does not, order a service call.

Don't forget to shut off the power again and remove the jumper.

Why won't the fan switch of after the oven is switch off


Not sure what fan your question refers to, but the fan that removes the heat from above the oven is controlled by a thermostat. It normally does not come on until the air temperature above the oven space is about 300 degrees and does not turn off until it is below 300 degrees.

Whirlpool super capacity 465


Seems the thermostat is malfunctioning...thus when baking at 500..thats quite high...it keeps getting hotter past that point to where the oven thinks its in self cleaning mode. Also seems like the problem because when it cools down your allowed to use it again. There is no way to test it with an ohmmeter. Just remove and replace.

Oven does not "burn" steadily when set below 300 degrees.


Sounds like you have a bad oven ignitor and oven burner tube. install a Amperage meter on one of the oven ignitor wire, It should draw above 3 AMPS, if it is below then you have a bad oven ignitor, or just change the oven ignitor to see if it makes any difference. Have fun.

My gas oven will not heat up above 300 degrees and


You may have 2 problems.
One. The temperature sensor could be bad. You can remove the temperature sensor and check it with a ohm meter. It should read 1050 to 1150 ohms. If not. It is bad.
Two. The glowbar ignitor could be bad and not igniting the gas safety valve.Open the bottom drawer of the oven and set the oven to bake. The burner should light in 60 seconds or less. Re-light should be about 30 seconds or less.
If it takes longer the ignitor is bad.

Sharp R-1874F Low Convection Temp


We have the 2 service manuals you need to refer to for this model and have uploaded them to our site here and here to help you.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print them in case you don't have it.

The manuals have a safety info, disassembly info, troubleshooting chart, test procedures, part numbers, etc.

I would first suspect a bad thermistor, but it should be checked, as well as the line voltage at the outlet, etc.

The best place to order parts for this brand is Encompass (formerly Tritronics). Or you can call them toll-free at 866-779-5835.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.
