Oven wont heat up properly

My oven is 7 years old but just recently will not get up to the required temperature. I have to put it on full temp just to heat it up enough to cook something.

    We have a 3 yearold frigidaire PLEB30S9DCA single wall oven.

    on [Bake] it does not heat up at all

    on [Broil] the broil element does not heat up at all

    on [Conv Convert] or [Convection/roast] the fan comes on and it heats up to a very low temp, ( would say not more than 150 degrees)

    neither self cleaner works.



    No error codes show up, timer works, clock works



    Help please?

    thank you

    Oven will not heat up at all. We have had it for about five years and has been an outstanding oven, but just this week i turned the oven on and it would not heat up past 150 and now it will not heat up at all and it gave me F7 error code.

This may be the thermostat control.
I would find someone to check the resistance of the element with an ohm meter.
It should read 15 to 20 ohms.
Put the timer on manual first and try the oven, because it could be the timer.
It would be ok to just replace the bottom oven element because most of the time it is a faulty element.

I have chef EGC651S oven with separate grill. On fan assist oven only heats up to a certaain temp and doesnt get any hotter what could be the reason for this


Probably thermostat problem, although some chance you have one side of a 220vac breaker not working. In otherwords oven heating element is "getting" half of the required power. Call electrician!

I have a kenmore mark 1 oven in my apartment and the oven temperature says 1-9 instead of going in degrees such as 100, 350 etc. I am wondering which number stands for which heat?


This Conversion table is from the old Gas Mark scale
I'm thinking it should be right or at least pretty close.
You could also get a cheap ($5-7) oven thermometer from local grocery store.
Put it inside oven to check actual temp achieved.

Gas mark Fahrenheit Celsius
1⁄4 225° 107°
1⁄2 250° 121°
1 275° 135°
2 300° 149°
3 325° 163°
4 350° 177°
5 375° 191°
6 400° 204°
7 425° 218°
8 450° 232°
9 475° 246°

How do you fix the temperature for the whirlpool oven


Buy a oven thermometer to put inside the oven to check the accuracy of your oven temp setting. If the oven temp is not too far off from what your oven thermometer is reading, you can recalibrate the oven knob. Pull the knob off and look at the back. You can adjust the degrees approx +or - 20 degrees. If the temp is all over the place or just not heating up enough, then it's time to replace the oven thermostat, assuming the oven isn't too old or not worth fixing.

Oven not heating up properly


You could very well have an electrical problem. You may not be getting the full 220 volts needed to make the oven function correctly. Call a local appliance technician or electrician for service.
