Question about American Range AR-4B-36RG-CL Gas Kitchen Range
Oven temps are way off 50 degrees +. How do I adjust temp. I installed oven thermo and let oven come up to temp. Then tried to adjust using silver "air mix wheel" but now temp is close but rear of oven cooks FAST and front of oven cooks SLOW. How do I adjust properly????

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,

Tips for a great answer:
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

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
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.
