Oven not baking properly

When I bake anything it is like it is cooking from the bottom up. When do cookies, if i put a ball like amount, they do ot spread out as they should.
The bottom seems to brown and cook and the top part just sits there and bakes.

    I also have this problem and my oven is new. I don't think its got anything to do with the door or seal. It will not brown anything on top and all the cooking seams to take about 10% longer.

Check the door gasket and or hinges, it sounds like the heat is escaping and only radiant energy is doing the cooking.

How do i fix an oven that bakes unevenly


the cooking I can't help with, but the oven I can.

sounds to me like the bottom element or what controls it is not working. the reason the ones on top are cooking is that the top element is coming on and browning them on top after the heat has made the dow rise and cook.
so essentially everything is cooking from the top down. so when the temp drops its using the top element to heat with and thus browns the top rack.

check ur elements to make sure both work, if so, move on to the thermostat which I have to be the culprit many times.

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. =)

Heat escaping, uneven baking, longer cooking times


Either the seals need to be replaced, or you may have weak oven door hinges, and the door is not closing properly.
Only solution would be to replace both hinges if this is the case.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Cannot bake cookies in my gas oven


First, I would buy an oven thermometer to use in the gas oven to see if the temp you set is what you are getting. Second, Perhaps, you used a different pan or cookie sheet in one vs the other? Also the cookies perhaps should be a little closer together as they bake. A cookie sheet with a lot of uncovered surface will get hotter than one with a bigger load. (ever notice the instructions for biscuits or cinnamon rolls say "sides touching"?, same reasoning. if you put a few rolls on a big sheet or pan, you'll burn the bottoms, gas or electric.) Hope this works for you, when you get happy using the gas, you won't want an electric again.

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

Concealed oven


consealed bake means that the bake element on the bottom had a metal plate above it to make it easier to clean and to allow you to use the lower racks without burning the bottom of your food. To use, you want to make sure that the oven temperature that you set has been reached before putting in your food to be cooked. You also should put the racks one notch lower than you normally would. If you do this, you should have no problems with your food cooking unevenly.
