Hello - The thermostat knob for the larger oven has broken off. Is this an expensive repair? Would $600 be unreasonable....?

Whirlpool accubake oven #GR448LXPB. My oven wont get hot, on any heat setting. It does barrely get warm. Could you tell me what may be the problem


The problem is probably either your thermostat control knob isn't working, may be "gunked" up, or the gas pressure sensor, a long copper thin tube with a larger bulbous attachment at the opposite end, and connected to the oven thermostat INSIDE the range/oven, is either broken or damaged, and can't set your ovens' temperature.

Check to see if the pressure sensor is damaged or broken. If that's the problem, buy another and replace it, being careful to tighten the screws to the thermostat. If that's NOT the problem, then you'll have to take the thermostat OFF, and see if it's got any gunk anywhere that could cause it to malfunction, or take it to a shop that can test it for you, as they are EXPENSIVE to replace.

Do I really need to replace the whole oven thermostat on my Viking if only the knob shaft broke off?


I would follow his recommendation. If it is not repaired correctly you will have temperature problems and it will hold the know in the right position.

Oven is not working


Hello there:
Just to clarify if yu are talking about the entire oven not working than check out these solutions
Fuse/circuit breaker Check to see if power is getting to the range/oven. Does anything turn on--even a light? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. Main wiring Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the range/oven, gets burned and so breaks the connection. Then you may have to replace the power cord to the range/oven, and the terminal block that the wire is attached to. Range/oven wiring There may be a broken or burned wire at the back of the range/oven. If you repair any of the wires, use only proper appliance-grade wire and wire connectors. HOWEVER IF IT WILL NOT BAKE OR BROIL
It won't bake or broil If neither the bake nor the broiler heating elements heat, but the range burners still work, the clock may be set for a timed or self-cleaning cycle. Check to be sure the clock buttons and knobs are set properly. If your clock has a knob that says "push for man(ual)", push the knob in and try the baking and broiling elements again. If it still does not operate properly, you probably have a defect in the thermostat, selector switch, or common wiring. If the oven does not have a separate bake/broil/etc. selector switch, the problem may be with the thermostat. But it's not easy to check the selector switch or thermostat for proper operation. If you suspect a problem in this area, call a qualified appliance repair technician.

If you suspect a problem with either of these, call a qualified appliance repair technician. The clock stopped The non-electronic clocks on gas range/ovens often don't last long. That's a problem, because the clock is essential to the self-cleaning and timed-bake features. Clocks are rarely repairable--you usually just have to replace them. Electronic clocks have been more reliable. But, they're often integrated with several other features of the range/oven. So when the clock develops a defect, it often renders the entire oven and broiler inoperative. The electronic clock is usually integrated with a circuit board, and the touchpad that holds the buttons you press is often a separate component. If your electronic clock is defective, you may need to replace the touchpad, circuit board, or both. Although these may be expensive, they aren't usually very complicated to replace.

Viking Thermostat bad - Feels like Little House on Prairie


It does not sound like the guy is trying to rip you off. Most mechanical thermostats are adjustable by a center screw in the oven control knob stem behind the knob. The problem is when an oven is off by more than 30 degrees they become almost impossible to calibrate correctly and it is better to replace it. There would not be any danger in just using the thermometers and just living with the problem. It would be a very expensive fix for a Viking and if you can live with it then you are better off. The parts alone will probably be over $300 and then there is the labor charges. The thermostat assembly also includes the tempature probes so it requires major range dis-assembly to replace it. Sometimes the oven control knob will have an adjustment screw on the knob istelf(back of knob) to adjust the position of the dial ring to match the correct oven tempature. This can allow you to change the position of the knob to match the actual tempature of the oven. They usually will only go 30 degrees one way or the other though. So my advice is that if you can live with it and are able to still cook properly then put off fixing it. If you find that over time the cooking tempatures start increasing then you might have no choice but to have the thermostat assembly replaced.

It takes too long for the oven to reach the desired temperature.


Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:"

  • When the item takes far too long to finish, you probably have a weak bake igniter. Often, you need to replace the igniter, but you may want to troubleshoot the oven's electrical system further to more precisely locate the defect.

  • When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, the oven thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. If your oven uses an electronic temperature-regulating device, you may have an electric sensor in the oven instead of a mechanical thermostat. If the oven temperature is off by 30 to 40 degrees in this type of unit, you must replace the sensor.

    On many units with a mechanical thermostat, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.
