Question about Kenmore Kitchen Ranges
This is an economy model and may not have any adjustment but... can the oven thermostat be calibrated? Set to 350 and only reaches 310. Pull knob off - solid plastic shaft - no set screw. Perhaps press and hold shaft? Don't know.

You need to turn the orifice on the safety valve down (clockwise) and this will make the flame smaller. The orifice is what the burner for the oven sits on at the bottom. The valve is # 214 on this diagram. http://www3.sears.com/imaging/ImagePageJava.shtml?productTypeID=0124111&brandID=0582&modelDesc=GAS%20RANGE&modelNumber=3627331890&documentID=10033508&documentTypeID=PLDM&documentClassCode=PM&titleType=BURNER%20SECTION&titleID=00001&. Hope this helps.

Electric ovens are calibrated behind the temp knob. Pull the knob straight off of the shaft and look at the back of the knob. There should be a metal slide with a scale and a little set screw. Loosen the screw and move the slide in the direction indicated for your needs.

SOURCE: oven temp set at 350.
Use an oven thermometer Try to figure out if by setting it to 390 it will maintain 350 accurately. (A 25 degree change while it cycles is normal. It will probably overshoot before going off and undershoot a little before cycling on.) If so the thermostat has just drifted. Pull off the control know and look usually there is an adjustment on the shaft to change the temp showing on the knob. set it up 50 degrees. If the knob can't be changed just know that you have to adjust yourself. If it won't maintain a steady temp the thermostat is bad and will need to be replaced. The thermostat will be over $100 it may not be worth it. If this is a computer controled unit (pushbutton temp selection) the sensor needs to be replaced. This is a lot cheaper than a thermostat.

well no need to fret, if you oven is heating over 100 degress off theres problably not an adjusatment to compensate for that, youll need to either replace the htermostat or the thermistor, depending on which your machin uses

Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details.
Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat.
When you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, and then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.
