My oven keeps going back to "Pre Bake 135 degrees" after I set Bake and the temp at which I want to cook. It stays at 135 and doesn't move. This oven was here when we moved in so I don't have a manual.

Re: Frigidaire Oven Problem
Please post the model Number here..so i can look it up but just off hand there maybe an oven sensor (thermistor) problem this in inside the oven and tells the electronic ctrl board what the actual temp is in the oven it says 135 beacause it will until the temp reachs that after that as the temp goes up it will read 140 150 160 .. and so on until it reachs the set temp .. Is the oven getting hot and are there any fault codes coming up??

It should come programmed with ?F. Have you tried to cook anything in the unit to measure the temperature? That would be another way to easily tell. Set it for the highest you can get it and bake something you normally would be at a lower temp for lower amount of time and go from there.
If you are monitoring the oven temperature with an analog style thermometer you may actually be ok, but seeing the thermometers slow reaction time.
Some newer ovens actually do pre-heat beep prior to reaching temp in an effort to conserve eelectricity.
A good home test is to try your oven at several different temps to see if there is any variation in internal temperature. Try it one day on 300, the next at 375 and another day at 450. Give your analog style thermometer time to catch up (usually just about 15 min) and leave it on for a half an hour to see if the temp maintains.
Also Beware of aluminum foil AND THE NEW OVEN LINER MATS as they can alter oven performance bay absorbing and blocking the ovens natural heat radiation and convection air flow currents that happen in all ovens, not just convection models.
Another interesting fact is that older ovens used a thermostat in them that operated much like your thermometer and was very slow to react making the oven typically about 100 degrees hotter than where the customer set it. This was just a fact of life before the advent of electronic temperature management and became noticeable when people began trying to bake older "hand me down" recipes in the newer ovens with less than stellar results.
You can mimic the older oven performance by preheating the oven about a hundred degrees higher than called for and after it reaches temp, re-set it to the correct temperature and put the items in right away.
If you find your temperatures fluctuating ask your servicer to replace first the temp sensor and as a last resort the control board as this part is usually pretty expensive.
Good Luck with this!
press bake and set to 550degrees. within 2 seconds press and hold the bake until 2 digits show on display, then release bake. the digits displayed is the amount of degrees the oven is off from original factory setting. If it reads 0, it is at original factory setting. you can now adjust by pressing the up button for a hotter oven, down for lower. it can only be done for 35 degrees. when done, hit clear/off. this will help to close the gap. if you are using an inexpensive thermometer, it can take a very long time for it to read the actual temp in the oven.
The Taylor oven thermometer you bought is decent at best. It is most likely the sensor inside the oven. Has your clock displayed any fault codes? F, followed by a number? Changing the sensor will probably correct the problem.
Sears Kenmore Electric Wall OVen, Mod.#9114012192 purchased in 1993. Set oven for 425 degrees, reaches set temperature, stays on about 10 minutes and temp. display goes out and oven starts cooling down. Will not stay on desired temp.to cook. Can you tell me what my problem is? Thanks. Doug.
