Oven staying hot a long time after it was turned off

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.

    My oven is a GE flattop, 10yrs old, and the other evening after I shut the oven off, I realtized about 2 hrs later the oven was off but the oven was very hot. The coil on the bottom of the oven in one spot about the size of an inch was glowing orange while I was baking the chicken, but then it stopped. Decided to unplug, but now I don't know what to do. Any advice?

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!!

My Baumatic BS65MS oven is cooking too hot, it burns everything. I have turned down the temperature, this doesn't help. What would be the problem?


You may have a stuck thermostat and that should be replaced because he's probably telling the other keep eating even though the temperature the temperature would be correct

think your new oven is too hot or too hot or too cold, you can adjust the temperature yourself to meet your specific cooking preference. You can also adjust your thermostat if your oven is not new, since thermostats may "drift" from the factory setting over time. See the "Adjust the Oven Thermostat"

We cooked pizza at 500 something popped and now our oven cooks but not right , any ideas


If you have an electric range, look at both the top and bottom elements while oven is cold. Look for a rough spot like a hole in the element. You may have just burned out one of the elements. Sometimes they go bad without any marks. Turn on oven to about 350 and watch the bottom element to see if it gets red hot. Then set for broil and watch the top for the same red hot glow. If either does not glow red after 5 to 10 minutes, that element is bad.

When cooking Pizza at 220c the top burns-even though the element is on the top and the pizza in the bottom third of the oven, and the base is uncooked - this also takes 30 minutes to cook?


you are using the broiler to cook it,the upper element is the broiler,the lower one is for the oven,turn on the oven so that the bottom element is on,if it doesnt work,then that is the problem

Hotplate and oven temp


There are several possibilities. Make certain your fuse at the main electrical box is correct for a 220VAC line. You do not want to OVER POWER the range. If that is normal, check all cords for insulation and flexibility. Check thermostat controls on the burners and/or oven.
If parts are normal, the only thing you can do is manually set temps lower when using the oven. Glass tops generally stay hot for several minutes after they are turned off. That is Normal, for example, to avoid Glass from fracturing; temperature slowly declines. Lastly; if all is lost, call for a serviceman to check it out, as you do not want a house fire.

Whirlpool gas oven is taking three times as long to cook something,what is wrong?


have you checked with an oven type thermometer for 350 degrees against the setting of 350 degrees,if its off very far then its the oven temp sensor in the upper left middle or right rear wall of the oven thats bad it looks like a small pencil type rod 2" to*' long it merely unplugs off the oven s control panel in the rear,you can test its resistance also to get an idea if it is your culprit,otherwise the oven element could have a hot spot in it and not letting all the current thru to properly heat the element,it will be dis-colored in that area

Is it dangerest when your oven beeps f2


Typically an oven beeps when the interior temperature macthes the temperature where you set the dial. This is an audible signal to that fact and particularly helpful when you need to pre-heat the oven. For example it you want to cook something at 350 degrees, you set the dial at 350. When your oven reaches that temperature it beeps to let you know. Some cooking directions tell you to preheat your oven. In that case, when you set the dial to 350 and wait for the beep...you know you are safe to start your cooking process because the oven is now pre-heated to the temperature you set. If your recipe requires a pre-heated oven, and you don't wait for the beep, your taking a guess at what temperature you're cooking your food. Additionally, if you want to know what the internal temperature of oven is and your oven is heated...you simply turn you dial setting and listen for the beep. Again, if you set your oven at 350 and you want to know how hot your oven is... slowly turn the dial setting. If the oven beeps at 275 then that's how hot your oven has gotten. To let it finish heating to 350 just reset the dial and wait for the beep.

Does an electric oven need curing before I cook in it for the first time? If so, how long and at what temperature?


you can run it at 350 for like a half hour or so and you'll smell a funny smell from the metal heating up,when i replace an ignitor or an element i run it for like 10 minutes just to burn off the smell of the metal.i'm sure the factory already had that fired up to check it but i would start it and burn anything off of it that might be in there before i cooked anything,it can't hurt it.good luck with your new machine.

Kenmore 790.95662100 electric oven does not bake evenly. It seems to bake items until you get into the center of a cake or the center of something with mass. The same temp has previously cooked without...


Sounds like the thermostat is out of calibration. IE- you set the temp at 350, but the actual temp is only 275, resulting in undercooked food. I repair comercial restaurant equipment, and use an infra red thermometer to check actual temp in the oven, against the set temp.

I have a whirlpool accubake duo, super capacity 465 and when I try to bake something the oven wont stay on...how do I get the oven to stay on


What do you mean that it wont stay on? Does it turn off and on during cooking? Does it just go off and wont come back on? The oven thermostat regulates the heat in the oven and the oven element and the oven indicator light will turn off and on during cooking. If it stayed on constantly on full oven element power everything would burn.
