Why do our element thermostats need replacing every few years?


When you replace the elements , sometimes, almost every time. The dial has to be adjusted. Have a oven thermometer? Put on 350 wait 15 minutes, see where it is. Remove top of stove, use the bar to hold up. Should be a very small screw on back of dial , turn clockwise or counterclockwise . Adjust til correct. You may have a part number sticker or similar sticker covering it.

Frigidaire oven overheating


Stove will not turn off CHECK

Temperature Control Thermostat


If the oven won't turn off the oven thermostat is often the cause of the problem. The electrical contacts inside the oven thermostat can weld themselves together and then the oven won't turn off. If this happens, turn off power to the entire appliance at the household circuit breaker or fuse. The oven thermostat usually cannot be tested and must be replaced if defective.

Oven Control Board


The oven control board has a set of relays that turn on and off power to the bake and broil circuits according to the customer settings and sensor input. If the oven won't turn off it could be that one of the relays on the oven control board is shorted closed, providing voltage to the heating circuit. It can be dangerous if the oven won't turn off. Don't leave the oven unattended without turning off power to the oven.

Relay board:
Some ovens are equipped with a relay board. This circuit board has several relays which control the switching of electrical current to the oven heat source. If the oven won't turn off it may be that one or more of the relays on the relay board have failed. If this happens replace the relay board. The relays on the board are not sold separately. ALSO CHECK THE BAKE AND BROIL ELEMENT.

Why is the oven temperature incorrect?

The oven temperature control is usually controlled by a thermostat that uses a capillary and liquid filled bulb. When the bulb's liquid gets heated up, it expands and puts pressure on a diaphragm which opens and closes a switch that controls the gas to the burner. Just set the dial to what you need the temperature to be. Over time, it is possible for your thermostat to lose its calibration. Sometimes, the thermostat sensing bulb comes loose from the holder. If it is out of place, the thermostat may be getting faulty readings. If this is the problem, re-aligning the bulb properly will take care of this problem.

Digital display models use a sensor to control temperature. If this is faulty, replace it. Other ovens use a mechanical system to control the temperature.

On many models, you can 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 models don't have an adjustable thermostat, and you will have to replace the thermostat if you want to resolve the problem.

Westinghouse oven 688 my oven wont turn off


Sounds like something has happened to your on/off switch that has caused contacts inside to stick in the on position. You will probably have to have it replaced.

Electric fan oven


Sounds like the oven thermostat stuck, for whatever reason and then the oven overheat thermostat kicked in. At the very least, I think you will need a new oven thermostat and possibly an overheat one as well. On the 720 there are two, one for each oven, so when you take the oven to bits, check both out.

The lowest setting on the dial of our Imperial oven is 175 degrees F. If we set the dial below the 175 mark, could we get the oven to level out at a lower temperature? We're looking to achieve a stable...


The temperature figures on the dial are a guide only. Play with the dial, you will pick up where the thermostat cuts in and out. 130 deg. is rather low, but it could be achievable. You will only find out through experimentation - nothing will be damaged.

Oven heats up when power to cooker is turned on ( dial is at off position)


It sounds like the oven thermostat/regulator is faulty, or the dial is not turning the switch off properly, this could be caused by the dial being cracked or broken.
Pull the dial off, and try the switch with a pair of grips or pliers to make sure it is completely turned off.
If it is, then the you need to replace the switch or thermostat as the case may be.
Hope this helps.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Main oven does not heat up


When you turn the main oven on, does the oven fan switch on?
When you turn the main oven on does the cooling fan come on?
Does the dial illuminate when the oven is turned on?
Does the oven thermostat neon come on the the oven is switched on?
Have you had a power failure recently and have not set the clock?
Are you sure that the clock/timer is NOT set and in manual mode?

Oven will not turn off on older Kenmore range


Your oven thermostat has gone faulty. You need to unplug power from the wall. Remove panel that allows access to oven thermostat, Remove knob and see what type of retaining method it has to secure it to the oven. (Does it have a nut or does it have 2 screws holding itself in position.?). How thick is the dial shaft?(5 or6 or 7 mm.thick). With that information, look now at the body of the thermostat. It should have a number sequence in the form of a sticker on it. Write it down. Phone the spares suppliers and quote them the stove model number with the other relevant items you wrote down to ensure the correct thermostat. Note, never remove wires until you are ready to transfer them one at a time from one thermostat to the other until transfer is complete. Reassemble completely and check.
