Question about Hotpoint RGB745 Gas Kitchen Range

4 Answers

Hotpoint RGB747GER oven does not heat properly. The oven temperature when read by meat thermometer place in center of oven is 1/2 of control setting ( i.e oven temperature set for 300 degrees displays 300 degrees, but manual thermometer placed in oven reads 150 degrees). Never gets hot enough to cook rolls, cookies, cakes,meats properly Did adjust thermostat to max setting of +25 degrees - change not enough to help. Did have a F ? error about a year about, but unplugging/ pluggin back in cleared. Seems to ignite and quality of flame looks ok. Broiler & cleaning mode temperatures seem to work fine.

    edited message befor posting - but do not see it posted - purchased manual thermometer - set control panell to "baked 400 degrees" in about 4 minutes panel sensed oven had reached desired temp listened for flame/ burner to shut off then did manual internal temp measurement ---but when maual oven thermometer hung off rack reads less than 150 degrees. Unit will occassionally appear to kick in gets hot - then burns everything -- broiler not working good not either

    Any other suggestions the only way we can see to adjust oven thermostat is by using the +- 25 degrees on display pad which we tried prior to post. This model does not have a knob for the oven - so the oven can not be adjusted the same way the stoptop burners can be adjusted.



    As previously stated the quality of flame appears satistfactory for both the broiler & the oven- so I don' t thing the air shutter is the issue

Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may 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.

If, 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, 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.

The oven thermostat is preset at the factory. Many models will allow you to adjust the thermostat. Over time, it is possible for your thermostat to lose its calibration.
You may be able to adjust your oven thermostat using a small screwdriver. The adjusting screw is located on the thermostat valve stem. Remove the knob and you’ll see the screw underneath it. You want to turn the oven on and run it through at least two cycles while watching a calibrating thermometer in the oven for high and low temperatures. Adjust the screw as necessary to fine tune the temperature.
Some ranges have a calibration plate or ring instead of a screw. The ring is located on the back side of the thermostat knob. Refer to the owner's manual for your product if you want to calibrate your thermostat using that method

I am cooking a pork crown roast for Christmas it says to cook it at 3:50 for 2 hours however I will not be back for 3 to 3 1/2 hours at what temperature should I cook it so that it will turn out well


Hello, Vicki -

I hope you have a meat thermometer.

I suggest you roast the pork at 250 degrees Fahrenheit, so the cooking time will take longer. When you return home, pull the roast out of the oven and insert your meat thermometer. The internal temperature of the meat needs to be between 140-145 degrees F. If it is not, put the pork roast back in the oven and turn the heat up to 350 degrees F. Check the internal meat temperature every 15 min.

You CAN set the cooking temperature even lower to allow for an even longer cooking time. But NEVER set it lower than 200 degrees F.

Note: Be sure to turn your oven off when no longer needed. Plus, allow the meat to rest 10-15 min. before carving.

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

http://i.stack.imgur.com/blUvw.jpg

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

The oven cannot keep a consistent temperature. It is mostly about 100 degrees above the selected temperature. My landlord replaced the stove about a month ago and the problem is worse now than it was...


It sounds to me like the oven thermostat is faulty, as this is what controls the temperature.
If you can , get a thermometer and place it in the oven and check the temp against the seting with the thermometer, if as you say it is 100 degrees above setting , then you need to replace the thermostat.

Temperature does not always reach set point of 425 F.


Oven will not hold correct temperature:------- This can be caused if temperature probe not working.Resistance across temperature probe leads at room temperature (70°F) should be approximately 1096 ohms.----------- Other possibility for this problem is :--- Temperature control not calling for heat.When heat is required, there should be continuity between terminals 6 and 7 on temperature control.-----------Inadequate or improper ventilation.Check ventilation hood. Verify draw and make up air adjustment.-----------If all this checked out ok then its calibration problem.For calibration follow this procedure:--
It can be problem with temperature controller. TEMPERATURE CONTROLLER (Standard-Control Models Only) The calibration of the temperature controller should not be changed until sufficient experience with cooking results has definitely proved that the temperature controller is not maintaining proper oven temperatures. Before any recalibration is attempted, the oven temperature should be checked by the following procedure: 1. Remove all trays and pans from the oven. 2. Place a thermocouple or a reliable mercury oven-type thermometer at the center of the middle rack. 3. Turn the oven ON and set the temperature control knob to 400°F. 4. The amber "heat on" light will go out when the oven temperature is reached. 5. Allow three cycles for the temperature to stabilize. 6. Read the thermocouple or thermometer immediately after the light goes out for the third time, and again immediately after it comes on the next time. 7. If the average of these readings varies by more than 10°F from the dial setting, recalibrate by the following procedure. Recalibration should be attempted only by a competent service technician. Use the following procedure to recalibrate the oven: 1. Loosen the two set screws that secure the temperature-control knob to the temperature-control shaft. 2. Remove the knob from the shaft, being careful not to rotate the knob or shaft. 3. Replace the knob on the shaft so that the indicator mark on the knob points directly at the temperature that was measured at the center of the oven. 4. Re-check the oven calibration. ----------- Part number for temperature probe is 1181996 and you can order if from the Southbend service center. -------- If you want the manual and wiring diagram for your oven.Please click the link directly:-- http://www.retrevo.com/search/v2/jsp/mytrevo/myTrevo.jsp?page=man ----------- after you click the link,a page will open in that you fill the 5 letter number.And click the "download now " option.It will ask you to save or discard.Click the save option and download will start.It will take 2 mins to download.Then click the download file to open it.And go through the manual.------------This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

The oven does not heat to the set temperature. It is usually much hotter


You can have the oven recalibrated by a professional OR you can purchase an oven thermometer and check the temperature yourself. Place the oven thermometer in the oven.Set the oven to a specific temperature. When it indicates it is at that temperature check the thermometer. Adjust your setting by that many degrees. For instance, if you set the temp at 350 and the oven thermometer shows 450, then reduce your temperature setting by 100 degrees each time you use the oven.

Wattage Power


Unfortunately, the old owner's manual doesn't say, but you can do a test to see what its heating power is:

MICROWAVE HEATING POWER TEST

The following test will provide a suitably accurate measurement of the output power of any microwave oven. Variations or errors in performing this test will produce uncertain results. If the line voltage (from the electrical outlet) is low, the magnetron output will be correspondingly low.

Equipment needed:

- Microwave safe container with 1000 mL (1 Liter) gradation.

- Fahrenheit or centigrade thermometer

Procedure:

Pour exactly 1000 mL (1 Liter) of cool tap water into the container. Using the thermometer, stir the water, then measure and record the temperature. For accurate results the water should be about 60 degrees F (20 degrees C).

Place the container on the center of the oven cooking shelf (do not leave the thermometer in the container and remove any metal racks), and heat the water (at full power) for 63 seconds. Use the second hand of a watch, not the oven timer.

After the heating time is completed, immediately remove the container, stir the water, re-measure and record the temperature of the heated water.

Subtract the starting water temperature (step 2) from the ending water temperature (step 3) to obtain the temperature rise.

To determine the output power in watts, multiply the total temperature rise by a factor of 38.75 if you're using a Fahrenheit thermometer or by 70 if you're using a centigrade thermometer.

Stove to hot burns everything


This is a simple fix as long as the oven is heating properly and the only problem is that the temp seems higher than what the temperature control knob indicates...

Purchase an inexpensive oven thermometer from the hardware store and place it in the center of the oven. Set the temperature control knob to 350 degrees F.

Check the temperature indicated on the thermometer in the oven after 20 minutes. If it's not within 5 degrees of 350, you'll need to adjust the oven's temperature control.

Turn the oven off.

Pull off the temperature control knob. You can usually pull it off by hand, pry it off with a thin screwdriver, or slide a piece of cord up behind it and pull.

Note which kind of temperature control knob you have. There are two types: The first has a screw in the shaft of the knob; the second has an adjustment dial on the back of the knob.

Adjust the temperature with the first type by turning the screw in the shaft with a screwdriver. Turn it clockwise to lower the temperature; turn it counterclockwise to raise the temperature. Turn the screw just a little bit in the appropriate direction.

Adjust the temperature with the second type of knob by turning the dial on the back of the knob. (This dial is held in place with a screw or a clip that will need to be removed.) Raise the temperature setting by turning the dial counterclockwise; lower it by turning the dial clockwise. The notches are typically in 5 or 10-degree increments.

Test the oven temperature again.

Repeat until you're in the right temperature range.

Good Luck!
