    digital temperature usually starts at 100 degrees. Now starts at ~158. Actual temperature is a lot lower than the digital display shows.

Replace the oven sensor 174459. Depending on when this oven was built, there was a change to the sensor to inprove the overall baking results. That is from the Gaggenau bulliten for this unit. You will have to pull the oven to replace it. It is the small tube sticking out the back, If if remember, right of the oven. It could be the left side, in the corner. Sorry but been awhile since I worked on one of these ovens.

    It is just part of the service manual set of resolutions that came out. You can try calling Gaggenau to see if they will help with the part. Your unit came with a 2yr part and labor warranty.

I have a Jenn Air JJW9830DDP double oven electric, and the temperature in the oven is about 100' less than what it reads on the display. I tested the temp sensor and it ready 1073 ohms. Any s


Well, your temp sensors can still be bad. If not, there's always a new control board you buy!

However, I wouldn't drink water from that oasis without making ABSOLUTELY sure I'm not seeing a mirage.

The only common denominators between your upper and lower oven temp readings is the firmware and the oven thermometer you are using to visually check the temps.
What type of thermometer are you using to check your oven temperatures with?
If it's not a digital thermometer used specifically for testing ovens, you might just be leading leading yourself astray.
You need a calibrated thermometer. If I don't have a calibrated digital thermometer on me, I use two or three oven thermometers (the dial type) and average the readings.
It's the only way to be as close as possible with a digital probe.

If you have thoroughly verified that your oven is in fact not reading the correct temperature, then you can adjust it +/- 35 degrees F via your oven's control panel.
To adjust the oven temperature:
1 - Press Setup pad.
2 - Select the down arrow to scroll to the next screen.
3 - Select Temp Adjust using the Quickset pads.
4 - Select upper or lower oven (select models).
-"Set temperature offset using the Upper Set Knob" is displayed.
5 - Enter the desired temperature change using the Set knob.
The temperature can be increased or decreased up to 35 degrees.
The temp. change is displayed at the top of the window.
6 - Press the Set knob to accept the change.

Now, if you are still worried about the temp. reading being off, replace both the upper and lower temp sensors. That's all you can do besides replace the main board.

General Electric oven how to reset thermostat


First of all, most oven thermometers move very slowly compared to the electronic sensors and controls on the oven. To make sure you are getting an accurate reading, the thermometer should be in the center of the oven, the oven should be preheated, then wait another 20 minutes after the preheat beep. If the temperature is less than 35 degrees higher or lower at this point, it can be adjusted via the controls. Usually on GE ovens you press and hold bake and broil at the same time until SF comes up in the display. Then press bake, then use the arrow keys to raise or lower the temperature setting. If the temperature is more than 35 degrees off, you may have a bad sensor, bad control board, or other problem.

Hello.

When baking or cooking common foods in your oven, it is important that the oven heats to the proper temperature. Otherwise, the food in your oven could become over- or undercooked. The electric ovens are able to be calibrated if only slightly off, however, if the temperature is 25 degrees off or more, you should replace the oven sensor. The oven sensor is the device in the oven the detects the temperature. The control board increases or decreases the oven temperature, depending on the oven sensor reading. Before calling a repair technician, attempt to calibrate your oven or change the oven sensor.

Instruction

1 Turn on the oven and set the temperature to a medium-heat setting, such as 350 degrees.

2 Allow the oven to preheat and then open the door and insert the oven thermometer.

3 Allow the oven thermometer to remain in the oven for a few minutes and the look at the temperature reading, comparing it to the oven temperature setting.

4 Recalibrate the oven if the temperature is only slightly off, or replace the oven sensor if the temperature is greatly off, such as 25 degrees or more.

Calibrating the Oven

1 Turn off the oven to prior to calibrating.
2 Press and hold the "Bake" button until the calibration settings are displayed on the display.

3 Use the arrow buttons or "+" and "-" buttons to adjust the temperature the number of degrees that the oven is out of calibration.

4 Press the "Start" button to save the calibration settings.

Replacing the Oven Sensor

1 Unplug the oven from the wall or cut the power to the oven in your breaker panel.

2 Open the oven door and remove the oven racks.

3 Locate the oven sensor, located at the top-center of the rear oven wall.

4 Remove the mounting screw securing the oven sensor to the wall and then pull the oven sensor away from the wall.

5 Remove the cable connected to the terminal on the rear of the oven sensor and then discard the oven sensor.

6 Connect the cable to the terminal on the new oven sensor and then reposition the oven sensor and secure it using the mounting screw.

7 Replace the oven racks and then restore power to the oven.

Thanks.

I sthere a way to calibrate my oven temperature? It is off by about 35 degrees. Temperature is lower than display.


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

To Adjust the Oven Temperature (do not use Bake or Broil while adjusting the oven temperature): note: Your oven control was factory set in the (Fahrenheit) °F Temperature Display Mode. To change for (Celsius) °C, see page 15.
1. Press & hold the BAKE key pad and release after the display shows the factory temperature setting of 00. note: If the oven temperature has been previously adjusted from the factory setting, the current temperature adjusted value will appear in the display instead.
2. You may increase the oven temperature in 5°F (1°C) increments with each press of the uP arroW pad to a maximum oven adjustment of +35°F (+18°C). You may also adjust the oven temperature downward in 5°F (1°C) increments with each press of the doWn arroW pad (total range of -35°F to +35°F (-18°C to +18°C).
3. If you do not want to keep the display adjustment, press the clear oFF pad before the oven control beeps. This will cancel the temperature adjustment procedure. To start this procedure over again begin with step 1 above OR;
4. If you want to keep the adjustment, wait until the oven control beeps once.
5. The oven temperature adjustment has be accepted by the oven control and the display will return to the time of day.

Hello there
Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details. bullet.jpg Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. bullet.jpg 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.

Oven 150 degrees off


hi . i can help.

  • When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

    You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

    If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.

  • When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly.

    If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective.

    OVEN WILL NOT COME UP TO TEMPERATURE


    Hello,

    You can calibrate the oven on this model. Press the bake button, adjust the bake temperature up to 550 degrees and then press and hold the bake button until a 0 displays. Now you can adjust the oven temperature up or down to match the display.

    Here is a repair manual link that you can use to download frigidaire repair manuals. The one for 30 inch freestanding ranges will have the section on calibrating the oven's electronic control.

    XL 44 Gas Range Oven temperature problem


    hi If the oven doesn't heat evenly or doesn't heat at all, the oven thermostat may be malfunctioning. First, determine how much the temperature in the oven is off from the control setting. To do this, put an oven thermometer on a center rack inside the oven and turn the oven on for about 20 minutes, with the thermostat set at any range between 300 degrees and 400 degrees Farenheit. If the oven thermometer reads 25 degrees or more lower or higher than the oven control setting, the thermostat should be recalibrated. Here's how to calibrate the thermostat:

    Step 1: Pull off the thermostat knob on the control panel. Behind the knob are two screws holding a round, notched plate. Loosen these screws, but do not remove them.

    Step 2: With a screwdriver, change the notch setting on the notched plate by turning the plate counterclockwise; for every eighth of a turn, the oven temperature goes up about 25 degrees Farenheit. To turn the heat down, turn the plate clockwise.

    Some thermostats can be adjusted by turning a screw inside the control knob shaft housing. To do so, remove the knob and insert a screwdriver into the shaft so that the screwdriver blade engages a screw slot. Turn the screwdriver counterclockwise about one-eighth of a turn to raise the heat about 
    25 degrees Farenheit. Here's how to test a malfunctioning thermostat:

    Step 1: Test the thermostat with a VOM (multimeter) set to the RX1 scale. The thermostat is located directly on the back of the control knob that regulates the heat. To gain access to the thermostat, remove the back service panel to the control panel.

    Step 2: Disconnect one electrical lead wire from a terminal of the thermostat and clip one probe of the VOM to each thermostat terminal. If the thermostat is in working order, the meter will register zero. If the needle jumps to a higher reading, the thermostat is faulty and should be replaced.

    Step 3: If necessary, replace the thermostat with a new one of the same type.

    If you need to replace the thermostat, follow these guidlines:

    Step 1: Disconnect the terminal wires to the thermostat and pull off the control knob.

    Step 2: Remove the retaining screws. On some ranges, there is a wire running from the thermostat into the oven. This wire operates a sensing bulb that controls the thermostat. The sensing bulb is usually held by a bracket; unscrew this bracket to remove the bulb. Then carefully slip out the wire, the bulb, and the thermostat.

    Step 3: Install the new thermostat using a reverse procedure.
