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.

Sharp Carousel Microwave door won't open, button broke


Take it to a Discount Appliance or Used Appliance store and have them repair it. There they will have the parts that are used and cheaper to repair than hiring an Appliance Service Technician.
Option 2
Take the microwave apart and go to www.searpartsdirect.com and type in your model number and find the broken part and part number. Then order the part through ApplianceZone.com or ApliancePartsPro.com. Later when parts arrive at your door... install theparts yourself and save money!

Hello my ge JVM1630WH003 oven make a lound huming sound. It will not heat food or water up . The oven 6 years old. Thank You Kurt


That loud humming is a typical sign of a bad magnetron tube, the microwave source. Six years isn't an unreasonable lifespan for one, so the failure isn't unusual. The tube can be replaced, but it's the most expensive part in the oven, and you should let a professional do the repair. Microwave ovens are dangerous to work on, and there's a chance of microwave leakage if the repair isn't done correctly.

Between the cost of the part and labor, it may be more economical to replace the oven. Check the cost of a new one, then see what a service shop in your area would charge to fix yours. You might find only a small difference in cost, and the new oven would have a warranty.

Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya!

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.

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.

My old GE oven (JSP38G052BG) won't bake or broil. It start then stop after 1 or 2 minutes. The heating elements get worm. Can you help me please


Hello ediben11.

If your oven's bake or the broiler heating elements won't heat but the range burners still work;the clock may be set for a timed or self-cleaning cycle. So,make sure to check the clock buttons and the knobs are set properly.
*If your clock has a knob that says "push for manual" then push the knob in after that, try the baking and broiling elements again.

*If it still does not work properly, you may have a defect in the thermostat/selector switch/common wiring.

*If the oven does not have a separate bake or broil selector switch; then the thermostat is probably the problem. It is 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.

Hope this helps.
