Check the temperature select knob. On the inside of the knob there should be an adjuster.

The temperature probe may be the faulty component since this is an integrated machine.

Oven runs much hotter than set temperature. Usually 50 degrees hotter than what it is set at, but can go over 100 degrees higher.


Sounds like you need a new oven thermostat or get an oven thermometer and by experimentation draw up a new heating range for the oven dial.

My oven temperature is 100 degrees hotter than it should be


It will be the sensor inside the oven compartment that is causing the problem.
A new sensor should cure the prob, certainley cheaoer than buying a new oven.
Hope my advice helps you.

My oven burns everything.


Use a 'oven thermometer' in the oven and determine the 'actual temperature' in the oven. Your knob setting is off (not calibrated) and the oven is hotter than the control knob setting.

Oven temp gets hotter than control indicates.


Alot of the thermostats are adjustable and can be recalibrated but when they act like this, it is best to replace them. It is just a matter of time before it quit all together. Electronic units are some what different.
Let me know what you do and I'll give you a hand in getting it going.

New replacement thermostat needs calibrating on my Kenmore oven


There is no real way to calibrate the thermostat. Most ovens have the same problem. By lowering the setting slightly will help get a closer temperature. Sometimes similar thermostats are substituted and may not be exactly the same as the original that came with your oven. Hope my trying to answer your question was helpful, Thanks, Sea breeze

My Whirlpool oven no longer heats to the set temperature.


Temp probe/thermometer inside oven dirty, or off attachment, or defective. On some models, a small screw head adjustment is provided to calibrate thermometer under dial knob. Else, I would just set dial 50 degrees higher rather than expense of new thermometer or dial.
