Question about Ovens
I cooked something at 8:30 and it burned, even though it was only in for five minutes on 350. It seemed that the oven was on a much higher temperature. Now the door panel where the lock is for self cleaning is very hot, I have never used the self cleaning option and the oven door is not locked. Why is this so hot 1/2 hour after I turned the oven off. Also it seems that the broiler coils are hot, not red. No indicator lights are on, and the oven has been off for 1/2 hour. I am worried about an electrical malfunction. Do not know what to check for in the circuit box or how to unplug the oven.. It is a whirlpool about 20 years old built in the house with the microwave on top.
Thanks for your reply. I contacted an appliance repair person I have used before and he told me about turning off the breaker, which I did. He suggested using an oven thermostat to see if it was heating to the correct temperature as a first step. It may be the thermostat, I do not know what the controller is as presented by one of the responders. At any rate I learned that my breaker for the oven is by itself and is not attached to the stovetop which is good. I will have to weigh the cost of replacing a part on a 20 year old builder quality oven with microwave on top to a new one. Any ideas on a new problem free model are appreciated!!
