If you oven temp is off by +- 50 degrees, thermostat needed to be change. to check and adjust the oven thermostat usually we place the oven thermometer in the center of the oven, run the oven at 350 degrees for minimum 30 minutes and check the oven temperature, It should be +- 25 degrees, if it needed adjusting, there is the adjusting slot screw in the center of the thermostat stem, to adjusting it ( do not turn thermostat stem during adjusting ), turn adjusting screw counter clockwise to raise the the temp, clockwise to lower the temp, turn it a little at a time and wait 15-30 minutes before do the next adjustment until the temp match with the oven knob. To adjust the oven burner air and gas mixture, first turn the air shutter close, you will see yellow flame, then open the shutter until the yellow flame disappear and them open it a little more, now you are done. For the oven uneven cooking? you may have a bad oven burner tube, during operation some of the flame may be lift off, disappear or flame being uneven, you can check it with the kick panels off to see the flame, if these are the case, you needed to change the oven burner tube,

OVEN TEMP AT LEAST 75 DEGREES COLDER THAN IT IS SET AT .CAN I ADJUST THIS FRIGIDAIRE GAS RANGE GALLERY SERIES SELF CLEAN ,CONVECTION OVEN .


I appreciate your post, Ronald!

From the information you have provided you would like to calibrate the oven temperature on your Frigidaire range. I was unable to locate any instructions on how to perform a calibration on your oven. I would recommend consulting with a professional technician for proper calibration of your range. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

Oven is off 100 degrees. How to calibrate it?


To Adjust the Thermostat


Pull the OVEN TEMP knob off the shaft. look at the back of the knob and note the current setting before making any adjustment. The knob is factory set wit the knob directly under the pointer.


1. Pull of the OVEN TEMP knob

2. Loosen both screws on back of the knob

3. Adjust lower screw so it moves in the desired direction. You will hear and feel the notches as you turn the knob. Each notch changes the temperature about 10 degrees F.

4. Tighten the screws.

5. Return the OVEN TEMP knob to the oven.


Re-check oven performance and make the necessary adjustments accordingly.

Maytag mgr5765dqd temperature problems


Unfortunately, Maytag is now a division of Whirlpool, just one of many. I don't know your range but if it does not have electronic controls, the adjustment is located within the shaft of the oven temperature setting knob. The slotted screw is fairly deep in the shaft and you will need a small flat-blade screw driver with a slim and long blade. If the oven has control electronics, this adjustment will be located on the main board with the rest of the controls and this is normally located in the upright top section of the range.

Temp on oven is not correct


Good Evening.


I would make sure that the conversion kit was the correct kit for your stove. Also, if it is not heating properly I would call the gas company and tell them the conversion did not work and they need to double check their work (at no charge). If everything is in order proceed to the next step below.


You can try removing the Oven Temp control. There is an adjustment on the knob which will vary the temp + or - 75 degrees F or so.

Procedure: Preheat your oven for 350 degrees F. Give it a good 1/2 hour to 45 minutes and then pull the knob off (usually held on with a set screw) You will need a thermometer that will go up to 500 degrees (I use an electronic one but you can use any kind as long as it is within the ovens temp range. If the oven is underheating simply turn the oven control stem to a higher setting, say a 50 degree incrament. Wait another 1/2 hour and measure temp inside oven. Keep in mind when you open the oven door it affects recovery time, etc so 30 minutes between a measurement and adjustment should suffice. Once you have adjusted the temp control to your target temp of 350 degrees look on the back of the knob and see if there is a stop adjustment. There is a chance the temp control knob could be setup differently but the same philiosphy/procedure will be similar.- the adjustment could be on the stem itself instead of the knob.

Also keep in mind that the oven temp will fluctuate from high to low as it tries to adjust to the temp it is set at. That is why it is very important to give the oven time to cycle low to high when you incrament the temp control. Hope this helps and good luck! Gary

Soultion not viable


Any other posts have been blocked, so I don't know what you have been told or tried. Has the oven temp been OK until just recently? The range has not been moved or converted Nat gas to LP etc. recently? If yes to Q1 and no to Q2, I'd replace the oven sensor ( WB21X5301) and then reset control to +- 00. Sensor is the pencil shaped thing sticking out the back of the oven. Note: Your temp test method is not accurate enough to calibrate oven exactly. I take average temp after a minimum 3 on / off cycles using a digital calibrating oven thermometer to get them within 10 degrees of set temp.

Oven temp off


You either have a plug up in your flame from dirt etc.
or your valve needs to be replaced.
Try turning off the gas and getting to the burner and clean it first.
