There are 2 possibilities:
1) Are there 2 knobs to control the oven? If so, they may be switched.
2) Depending on the thermostat used, it may be possible to put the knob on upside down.

How Do I Calibrate An Old Maytag Oven


If the knob is consistently 25 degrees off from the indicated temperature the simplest and cheapest fix is to make a new indicator mark on the stove 25 degrees from the original.or some knobs have a glued on ring with the temperature numbers on them . Removing the ring and regluing it at the correct position could also work. Hope this helps.

My oven wont turn off from the knob it keeps turning


You didn't say whether you have a gas or electric oven, or oven & stove. I'll assume you have a stove, just to cover all bases.

First, you should shut down the oven: a gas stove will have a valve on the gas line behind the stove. The valve will either have a red handle or a flat stem that usually has a hole in it. Turn either valve 1/4 turn to shut off gas, use a wrench on the flat stem. An electric stove should be shut off by flipping off the double circuit breaker for it in your electric panel. Do not unplug an electric stove when it is on; this can damage the plug &/or electrocute you.

Most likely the inside of the knob has stripped out. Look at the knob for a hole that has a setscrew in it: a small allen wrench or screwdriver will loosen the setscrew, most knobs don't have them and will pull off. Be careful to use even pressure on two sides of the knob; if you can't pull it off, use two butter knives or flat screw drivers to pry it up enough to get a grip on it.

Look at the center stem on the back of the knob, it will likely be cracked or stripped. Some stems have a D-shaped metal insert that strips out inside the plastic stem. If you have one, pull off a burner knob and compare the stems in the back, if they are the same size, put the burner knob on the shaft for the oven control, and use that knob to turn the oven control off.

If the burner knob won't fit, use your fingers or a pair of pliers (gently) to turn off the oven control shaft. If the shaft stops normally, you can turn the stove back on using either the gas valve or the circuit breaker. If you have a gas stove that doesn't have electric ignition (a clicking noise when you turn on a burner) you may need to re-light the pilots for the burners. Lift the covers off the burners to re-light the pilots.

If you have succeeded in turning off the oven, you need a new knob -- you can get one at an appliance parts store or maybe a hardware store. If the oven control did not turn off normally, I would leave the oven/stove turned off: the control itself will need to be replaced by a qualified repair person.

Looking for a manual for Whirlpool BS0801/WH oven


I have a paper copy of the manual - if you need to know anything more than the information below post a more specific question.

The function symbols on Knob F, clockwise from the top, are as follows:
  • 0 = Off
  • Lamp symbol = Lamp Only, no fan, no heating.
  • Fan + Drip Symbol = Lamp + Fan, but no Heating - this is for defrosting.
  • Fan inside a Circle symbol = Lamp + Fan + Oven Heating - this is the normal cooking position. The temperature of the oven is set on the Temperature Knob.
  • Final position = Grill. The temperature of the Grill is set on the Grill knob.
The red indicator light only comes on when the Oven is heating (not the Grill), and goes off when the oven has reached it's set temperature.

The bulb is 25W 230V Type E-14 300 Degree C.

The oven draws a maximum of 2300W so requires a 10A supply.

Remove oven door to replace ignitor Better yet how do you replace idnitor have part


unplug stove
open oven door
remove racks
look at the bottom of oven towards the back
there should be screws or thumb screws
remove them and the floor of the oven should come out
then on the burner tube(where the flame comes out)
there should be a little ceramic piece that usually has two screws
remove them and unplug the wiring to it
at that point you should have it figured out
holler at me with any additional questions

Oven temp will not go above 300 degrees


You need to check the thermostat in the oven. Go to your manufacturer's web site and download the technical manual for your stove. There should be a troubleshooting section in the manual. If not, and you are somewhat handy...

1. Disconnect the power from the stove.
2. Locate the thermostat and jumper it out.
3. Reconnect power to the stove and turn on the oven.
4. Wait a few minutes and see if the temperature goes above 300 degrees. If it does, replace the thermostat. If it does not, order a service call.

Don't forget to shut off the power again and remove the jumper.

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.

Rebuilding old wolf stove


It is possible but you have to know how, top burners will be easier to do then oven, for top burner you will needed push button switch, spark module and electrodes. I never done the oven but it is possible. Have fun.
