Question about Ovens
I recently bought a villa ,the omega stove in situ has no oven manual,I seem to have only the top OR bottom element on at one time resulting in burning before the goods are cooked. can any one help out with a manual?
Hello. If your stove is manufactured by Omega Appliances, it appears that they no longer produce it. That said I can speak to your heating element issue. When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the
bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may
be burned out.
You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven
is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the
preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil
element, which causes poor baking results.
If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve
the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical
system to locate the defective wire or component.
When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it
could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat
sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of
the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not
If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the
thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective.
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.
