First check it make sure it is not programmed for Celsius. If not that then the sensor or the control is bad(or both).

If your burner always heats to "high" when it's on--regardless of how you set the burner knob--the switch contacts are shorted closed. Check the circuit for any other grounds, then replace the switch.

I have a kenmore mark 1 oven in my apartment and the oven temperature says 1-9 instead of going in degrees such as 100, 350 etc. I am wondering which number stands for which heat?


This Conversion table is from the old Gas Mark scale
I'm thinking it should be right or at least pretty close.
You could also get a cheap ($5-7) oven thermometer from local grocery store.
Put it inside oven to check actual temp achieved.

Gas mark Fahrenheit Celsius
1⁄4 225° 107°
1⁄2 250° 121°
1 275° 135°
2 300° 149°
3 325° 163°
4 350° 177°
5 375° 191°
6 400° 204°
7 425° 218°
8 450° 232°
9 475° 246°

Standard oven thermometers use a bi-metal coil, which is slow to react. When we test oven calibration, we use digital thermometers with a remote temp probe which are MUCH more accurate and MUCH quicker to respond to temperture changes. If your bake times are significantly longer or shorter than the recipes state, have a service technician test it.

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.

Hey-  Let's fix this thing.  Several things can affect indicated/actual temperature.  The temp probe should test ok across it's lead wires at around 1100ohms. The computer usually shows a fault if the circuit is open, but won't show a code if it hasn't failed completely.  The next suspect is the igniter for the oven burner.  These can become weak with age, affecting gas flow to burner. Testing igniter is not really possible when it comes on and the part is usually replaced.  The regulator is next in line, occasionally causing variable flow to burner.  As you can see, quite a bit to consider.  On site diagnostics is usually required, but this gives you a start.  Installation instructions are available for all parts.     Please acknowledge this post if my info and time spent helps you.  Have more info if needed.  Thanks- Ed

From the symptons you describe, I would say that the oven thermostat is faulty, and in need of replacement.
Make sure your thermometer is o/k by checking it against another one, or boil some water, and check the temp of the boiling water, this should determine if your thermometer is o/k.
Hope this helps.

Might have damaged the sensor. with the steam. There is a proceedure for adjusting the temperature reading but I do not think it will compensate for 100 degrees. i would replace the sensor.

Oven doesn't heat


I'm not sure what properly means.  If the unit is working, you can get a cheap oven thermometer to check the function of the thermostat.  Let the unit come to 350 and check the thermometer.  If it is off by more than about 20 degrees, there is a calibration change method in most oven handbooks.
If the unit is not working at all, this is another issue and needs a different set of diagnostics.
