The oven has a temperature sensor inside. The sensor tells the oven when to go on and off. It may need replacement. The sensor is protrudes from the back left wall of the inside of the oven. Make sure that it is fully plugged in and that it is not covered with any goop from the oven. The other things you can check is that nothing is obstruction the heat. That means NO foil or coverings on the bottom of the oven. It blocks the heat vents and can damage your oven. Underneath the floor of you oven, you will find the gas jets.The flame should come out blue and steady. It it is sputtering and orange, the little holes might be blocked. Clean carefully.

Why doesn't my biscuits brown on the bottom like my old oven did? Should I use a lower temperature and bake for longer time or what?


350'F for 20 to 25 minutes. Cooking longer and lower will brown and not burn, but will be crisper.

How long in the oven and what temp for medium rare what temp for the oven to be set at


A lot depends on the oven itself, whether it is fan forced, how well it holds heat etc.

Preheat to 240°C/475°F/ gas 9, place the meat in, and turn down to 200°C/400°F/gas 6. Cook it for about 1 hour, then take it out and place it covered on the serving dish for 15 min. before carving. This first go may need to have slightly modified times for the next roast you cook.

To get a perfect result you really need a meat thermometer

You don't need to put this in the oven with the meat, just insert the tip to the middle of the roast when it gets near time to see what is happening

Medium rare (? point) warm red center; firmer 55-60 °C Medium (demi-anglais) pink and firm 60-65 °C

Oven takes forever to preheat


The way the oven works is like so:
1) User sets the desired temperature
2) Power is sent to the ignitor
3) The ignitor is then energized, drawing 3.2 amps of current
4) When the 3.2 amps is drawn, the gas safety valve is allowed to open and gas flows into the burner assembly in the oven.
5) This gas is then ignited, causing the oven to heat.
6) As the oven heats up, the oven sensor, which is the metal rod located at the top on the rear oven wall, converts the heat into an electrical signal, relaying this information to the main control which in turns displaying the temperature.
(In models with a dial thermostat, there won't be a sensor, though a metal wire with a bulbous end will be present, which is actually connected to the thermostat.)

Oven not cooking at correct temperature & loses heat


Had a similar issue - but my unit is eight years old. Turns out my issues were my oven ignitors were failing and one of the burners had corroded causing the flame to only light on one side. To fix I replaced two ignitors (apparently they are to be replaced every 3-5 years) and cleaned the burner with a brass wire brush. If you are handy the ignitors are easy to replace - one screw and two wires each. Burner was one screw to remove.

Ceramic ignitors if wearing out can cause delayed lighting of the oven burners and/or reduce the gas flow - hence not heating up.

That was my experience ....

15 yr-old GE electric oven takes over an hour to preheat to 450


After jiggling the lower burn element the oven heated up in the normal time. Perhaps a connection had come loose.

When we cook in the oven it says F2 every 10 mins.


This means that your oven temp sensor has failed. There is no way to fix the sensor. You have to replace. The f2 means that your oven has reached its heaeting limit and it shuts down for safety. Replace oven temp sensor and it wil fix it.

Oven not cooking evenly, outside is getting brown but inside is undercooked


Sounds like the igniter is not operating at full capacity. What happens is that the oven does not light when it should. Instead, the oven is cooling down much too far so when the oven does light it has too heat more rapidly. This causes the outside to brown/burn long before it should.
