Can you verify the ignitor is working (ie: can you hear it sparking)?
1. If no, and you are absolutely sure there is not a buildup of propane inside the oven (or house for that matter), you can try lighting it with a match. If that works, you need to replace/reposition your ignitor.
2. If yes, do you smell propane after trying to light the oven?
A. If yes, STOP and get it fixed..
B. If no,
1. Check to see that your propane tank isn't empty?
2. Verify the regulator supplying the oven with propane is actually sending gas to the over (might need a repairman for this)

My oven gets warm but will not reach set temperature. Is this the element

Hello Peter;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

I recently repaired a oven that would be off as much as 200 degrees. The normal operation of your oven is to rise 20-40 degrees above set temperature and shut down until it drops 20-40 degrees below set temperature, turns back on and repeats the cycle again.

Generally, there are only three components that control your oven temperature:

1.) The Heating Element - If you are getting heat your heating element may be good. To be on the safe side inspect the two connections on the back wall to ensure they are not corroded.

2.) The Thermocouple - There are several different thermocouples depending on your model and if your have gas or electric. These are easily replaced.

3.) Oven Control - Here again there are several different controls, both mechanical or digital.

I just purchased a oven thermocouple and a reconditioned digital control over the internet for under $75.00.


So, go into the following website put in your model number and select parts. Several diagrams with part numbers will appear. Your model number is on a metal plate on the face of your oven after you open the door.
Fine your thermocouple and oven control. Copy these part numbers and search the internet for best price.
First, replace the thermocouple. If this solves your problem then return the control for credit if not install the oven control. The highest probably is you have a bad thermocouple

Kenmore oven take a long time to heat up, but bakes just fine once it reaches temperature. Is there anything I can do to speed up the heating process?

Start earlier?
>> check all elements for current,
check seals
check temperature calibration (allowed to be 15% ie 180 can be 153 or 207 Celsius!) no wonder Margs' scones cook faster at her house :-)

When baking the oven doesn't bake evenly and always bakes quicker than the time on recipes. Items burn and the middle is raw. Can the oven be recalculated to work better?? John

Electric ovens are always different from gas ovens. You have to set the temperature on average 10-15 degrees lower and watch out 15 minutes earlier if you are baking cakes, 5 mins for cookies etc. Always bake in the centre of the oven. use a metal bowl of water in another tray which may help balance out the temperature

Teperature i snot rising above 100, why?

Assuming your Thermador is electric, and it is only warming up a little, this is usually one of three things:

1. Heating element - with oven power disconnected, check that the elements resistance is in spec. Usually around 20 ohms.

2. Thermistor - this senses the temperature of the oven. Again, check the resistance. Depending on your model, it should be around 1050ohms at room temperature.

3. Electronic Control Board. These can be rebuilt quickly and reliably at Some are still available to buy online.

Hope that helps

If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...

Warming up problem

This has nothing to do with the element. This oven should only be serviced by a qualified technician. If you were one, you would already know the solution. You need to go into diagnostic mode to determine if it is the solid state relay or the cc thermocouple. After resetting the hi-limit more than once, it will also need to be replaced.
