Please guys help me, every time i baked the cookies , its always burned :(


The oven temperature may be too high. Get an oven thermometer and set it in the center of your oven and check to see if the temperature on your oven matches it. Many ovens run 25 degrees or more off of the set temperature. My mother's oven used to need to be set at 325 if she wanted it to bake at 350.


If the cookies are black on the bottom, but doughy in the centers, this may also be a case where the oven temperature is too high.
Another problem may be that you are baking them too long. Cookie baking is a precise thing. It may seem duh-obvious, but be sure you use a timer, lol. If the recipe calls for 10 minutes, and they are always burned, start checking them at 8 minutes.

If you are substituting honey for the sugar in the recipe, remember to lower the oven temperature by 25 degrees and decrease the liquids by a small amount to compensate. Honey browns/burns much faster than sugar.

Hope these suggestions help. =)

The actual temperature (as measured by repairman's device) is 20 to 30 degrees lower than indicated on the control panel. Should the control panel be replaced in a 7 year old range or should the range be...


You can adjust the bake average temp +/- 35 degrees this is called calibration.
Here's How:
To Adjust: 1. Press the BAKE pad (upper or lower oven) and enter 550° F. 2. Press and hold the BAKE pad (upper or lower oven) for several seconds until TEMP ADJ is displayed. 3. Press the AUTO SET pad - each press changes the temperature by 5° F. The control will accept changes from -35° to +35° F. 4. If the oven was previously adjusted, the change will be displayed. For example, if the oven temperature was reduced by 15° F, the display will show -15° F. 5. When you have made the adjustment, press the CANCEL pad and the time of day will reappear in the display. The oven will now bake at the adjusted temperature.
Do this first and you will be back to normal. If your using a oven temp. checker make sure you let the oven cycle for awhile. Preheat should take about around 10min. Remember 350deg is an average temp.
Have a great day!

Immediately press and hold BAKE
pad for 3 seconds.
Oven can be adjusted from -35 to +35
degrees in 5-degree increments by
pressing AUTOSET pad. To avoid
over adjusting the oven, move
temperature 5 degrees each time.
Wait 4 seconds for the data entry
timer to expire to accept the change.
Temperature adjustment will be
retained even through a power failure.

The oven doesn't come close to keeping a REASONABLE temperature. It fluctuates sometimes 75-100 degrees. I'm not talking about opening the door and then waiting to re-establish the temperature it was set...


If you just bought it, have it replaced, or repaired under warranty. If it is an old oven, replace the temp probe first (if it electric) It senses the temp inside oven, It is the least expensive part of the fix. If that doesn't work, replace thermostat/temp control board. When you replace a board, you replace the probe too. It will be needed either way. If just changing the probe works, you saved yourself some money.

Tappan Oven #MEF500PBWD heating unevenly


Perhaps the item you are using to check temperatures is not accurate. I my line of work, I use a digital thermometer which records immediate temperature. Perhaps understanding the process will help you see more accuracy in the way you read the temperature in your oven. Allow me to offer this explanation....First of all, place your thermometer near on the top rack as close to the oven temperature probe as possible. This probe is the focal point for your oven and detects the temperature and opens the electrical circuit to turn off the element when the desired set temperature is attained. Set your electric oven to 300 degrees and hopefully, you have a window in your oven to watch. The bake element will come on and the temperature will rise until it reaches 300 degrees. It is at this point when your oven bake indicator light should go out. When this happens....look inside. The element is still bright orange and emitting heat and will continue to raise the temperature in the oven to approximately 325 - 340 degrees. With this noted, you will see the temperature beginning to drop 315, 310, 300, 295, 290, 285 perhaps even 280 or some even lower to 275 and then the indicator lamp will go on indicating the circuit has closed thus turning on the element, Finally there is a variance and no range GAS or ELECTRIC will ever maintain a even 300 degree temperature. The calibration set point is based on the 300 degrees. If your oven light goes off within 20-25 degrees of three hundred degrees, your oven is already calibrated pretty close and I would not attempt to adjust it at all.

Oven temperature only gets to within 20-25 degrees of temp. set


next to last page in your manual


Adjusting Oven Temperature
Oven temperature has been factory calibrated and tested. If
oven consistently over or under cooks food, adjust thermostat.
Oven temperature can be increased or decreased 35°F. To
avoid over adjusting oven, move temperature 5°F each time.
1. Push BAKE pad.
2. Press + pad until an oven temperature greater than 500°F
shows in display.
3. Immediately push and hold, approximately 5 seconds,
BAKE button until “00” appears.
4. Press + or - arrow pad to adjust oven temperature.
• To increase oven temperature (for a hotter oven), Press
pad until a positive number appears in display.
• To decrease oven temperature (for a cooler oven),
Press pad until a negative number appears in display.
5. Press OVEN CANCEL pad to save adjustment.
• Setting is saved if power fails or is disconnected.

Amana Convection oven not controlling temp


I have just checked the baking guide in the manual and have found that it may not be us after all. (Maybe this is why they telll us to read the whole manual. Well, I never have) According to the cooking time for Baking, the range is very extensive. For example, an angel cake at 350 could take from 28-50 minutes, buscuits at 375-400 could take 8-16 minutes, layer cakes at 350-375 could take 25-40 minutes, pound cakes at 325-350 could take 45-70 minutes and fresh pies at 400-450 could take 35-60 minutes. Basically, the baking directions on the box means absolutely nothing to use Amana oven owners. We have no choice but to cook our food or baked goods until they are cooked, whenever that may be. :) Linda

Claibrating the temperature of a GE gas oven


First of all, do not use the oven thermometers from a grocery store. they can be off by 20 degrees or more. These directions may help you for electronically controlled ovens. The older manually controlled ovens have a small screw head in the center of the oven temperature knob that can be adjusted in usually 10 degree increments.


To Adjust the Thermostat
Touch the Bake and Broil Hi/Lo pads
at the same time for 3 seconds until the
display shows SF.
Touch the Bake pad. A two digit number
shows in the display.
Touch Bake once to decrease (-)
the oven temperature, or twice to
increase (+).
The oven temperature can be adjusted
up as much as 35°F. or down as much
as 35°F. Touch the number pads the
same way you read them. For example,
to change the oven temperature 15°F,
touch 1 and 5.
When you have made the adjustment,
touch the Start pad to go back to the
time of day display. Use your oven as
you would normally.
NOTE: The thermostat adjustment for Baking
will also affect Convection Baking or Convection Roasting.

Hi, try this and see if will help you. Most of the Gemini models are the same.

To set Bake:

• 000 will flash in the display.
2. Select the oven temperature. Press the
Autoset 0 pad for 350° F or the appropriate
number pads.
• Each additional press of the Autoset 0 pad will increase
the temperature by 25 degrees.
• The oven temperature can be set from 170° to 550°.
3. Press Bake pad again or wait four seconds.
• BAKE will stop flashing and light in the display.

Oven Temperture adjustment


On my Epicure, you are supposed to press the bake selector pad then press the + button to set the temperature to 500 degrees or higher.  Then hold the bake button for 5 seconds.  The temp display is replaced by 00.  Release the bake pad and use the - or+ buttons to adjust the temperature in 5 degree increments.  When finished push cancel (or just do nothing).  Good luck.  I tried this and my oven kind of went haywire.  It decreased the temp by much more than the 10 degrees I had set it too.  May be something else wrong with my oven though?
