Ther can be two problems with this the first thing to check and or replace is the oven temp probe it might be out of toloerance.then second thing will be your main electronic control board,or it is called the clock timer control.

What needs fixed in my built in Tappen oven, model 12-1263-30, when it is 90 degrees off?


Hello Wendy;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

The normal operation of a oven is the oven will rise 20-40 degrees above the set temperature and turn off. Then, when the oven temperature drops 20-40 degrees below the set temperature it will turn back on and cycle again. This is true except for the new accurate ovens.

Since you are getting heat your oven heating element is good.

You have a older oven.

Your problem is either the oven thermostat which cost over $200.00.

Now, here are your choices:

1.) Take a chance and purchase the oven thermostat and install it. If this does not solve the problem you can return it less shipping and restocking charges.

2.) My professional recommendation is to put the old girl to rest.
You can:
a.) Go to a Sears Outlet (Scratch and Dent) Store, save a couple of hundred dollars on a new oven and still get a one year warrantee .
b.) Go to a used appliance store.
c.) Go to Habitat Stores - used appliance stores.
d.) Go to Second Chances Stores - Appliances removed from homes that were torn down.

Best of luck,

Peter

How close should the temp control hold the temp


Generally the oven temperature will fluctuate as much as 30 degrees above or below the set temperature. The longer the oven is on, the less the temperature fluctuates. If you measure the highest and lowest temperatures readings with a thermometer after the oven has been preheated at least 20 minutes, you should come up with an average temperature somewhere within about 10 degrees of the set temperature. You can calibrate most ovens up to 35 degrees higher or lower if it is off. Any more than that requires replacing parts.

LG LRE30451 won't maintain temperature


Check the oven temperature probe (thermister) to see if it is good. To check it, use a multi-meter and Ohm it out. It should be between 1100 and 1600 Ohms. If it is out of tolerance, you will need to replace it. Here is the part to order.

Check oven temperature sensor for normal room temperature resistance (1085-1097 ohms at 75 degrees F). Check sensor wiring connectors for a loose or high resistance connection. Check electronic range control (also called clock or ERC) functions Replace relay board if necessary. Replace oven temperature sensor if other components check normal.

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.
