To heat up quick both the upper and lower element turns on till it reaches the set temp.
See if your broiler element or baking element is not working.

I would imagine this is the thermostat inside the oven starting to play up. Most of them are easily replaced by a competent DIY person. If however you don't feel up to it you can get them replaced by your local applinace shop. They don't cost a lot of money to buy and can usually be changed in about 30mins or so.

You should check the RTD to verify it is the proper resistance. You can measure the resistance using an ohm meter. The RTD is the metal rod in the upper corner of the oven housing. The resistance can very from make and model so I would suggest looking up the RTD for your particular stove and get the datasheet. This will tell you what the resistance reading should be at room temperature. Also do not touch the RTD when measuring. These are sensitive devices, changes in temperature even if just body heat will affect the reading.

    Light the oven and look at the flames. Are they smaller than normal? What color are they. Natural gas should be all blue, if there is any yellow in the flame you need to make a regulator adjustment. Being that your oven is taking a long time to heat up you either have a fuel delivery issue or a failing gas regulator/valve. Please be VERY CAREFUL if you choose to work on this yourself. Unplug the appliance before servicing.

  • David S. Feb 08, 2010

    As I said in my previous post, it could be your gas regulator/valve. Please read what I said about inspecting what the burner output looks like. You should see a tall blue flame. Any yellow in the flame and it is not achieving the proper air fuel mixture.

  • David S. Feb 09, 2010

    First of all you didn't pay me for anything, second of all I did not suggest you replace the RTD, that is your own fault. I am TELLING you that you should CHECK THE GAS REGULATOR/VALVE. Please do not give unwarranted negative feedback.

The oven temperature sensor is going bad. It is a small rod that is about 6 inches long and can be found in the top back of the oven. You can remove it by first taking off the back panel of the oven and then it is pretty self explanatory from there. You can order a new one from repairclinic.com or from a local shop. Just have your model number when searching and you should find.

Let me know how this works out for you.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described the issue seems to be with the thermal limiter switch that has gone bad and needs to be replaced. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.

    Yes Varghese you are right it is the thermostat that needs to be replaced. You have to open the back panel to access it, btw...it is located at the rear bottom access panel. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


    Thanks

Hello. If you have an electric oven, you will need to have the voltage checked to see where the problem is. Usually, when the oven needs 240 volts to operate correctly you will find only about 120 volts which of course is only half of what you should be consuming. The cause of that could be a bad heating element in the oven, a circuit breaker where one leg of the power has gone bad, or the wiring/outlet. To check these things requires a voltage meter.
If you have a gas oven, read on:
When the item takes far too long, you probably have a weak bake igniter. Often, you need to replace the igniter, but you may want to troubleshoot the oven's electrical system further to more precisely locate the defect. When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, the oven thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. If your oven uses an electronic temperature-regulating device, you may have an electric sensor in the oven instead of a mechanical thermostat. If the oven temperature is off by 30 to 40 degrees in this type of unit, you must replace the sensor. On many units with a mechanical thermostat, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. 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.

When I turn the oven down the gas goes off and have to start again


read the user manual as the temp should be thermostat controlled were with gas there is always a pilot light burning when the oven is in use and when the set temp is reached the gas burner is shut off and when the temp fall below set point , the gas is turned on again and the pilot light starts the burner
by using the timer , when the time is reached the gas is turned off and of course you will have to relight it
if you do not have a user manual , download one from google or talk with a gas repair shop

When set to bake eg: 350 degrees the audio alarm will indicate it's reached temp but the oven is 50- 75 degrees lower. Must wait another 15 min for it to reach the proper temp. Have tried to adjust the off...


If you are monitoring the oven temperature with an analog style thermometer you may actually be ok, but seeing the thermometers slow reaction time.
Some newer ovens actually do pre-heat beep prior to reaching temp in an effort to conserve eelectricity.
A good home test is to try your oven at several different temps to see if there is any variation in internal temperature. Try it one day on 300, the next at 375 and another day at 450. Give your analog style thermometer time to catch up (usually just about 15 min) and leave it on for a half an hour to see if the temp maintains.
Also Beware of aluminum foil AND THE NEW OVEN LINER MATS as they can alter oven performance bay absorbing and blocking the ovens natural heat radiation and convection air flow currents that happen in all ovens, not just convection models.
Another interesting fact is that older ovens used a thermostat in them that operated much like your thermometer and was very slow to react making the oven typically about 100 degrees hotter than where the customer set it. This was just a fact of life before the advent of electronic temperature management and became noticeable when people began trying to bake older "hand me down" recipes in the newer ovens with less than stellar results.
You can mimic the older oven performance by preheating the oven about a hundred degrees higher than called for and after it reaches temp, re-set it to the correct temperature and put the items in right away.
If you find your temperatures fluctuating ask your servicer to replace first the temp sensor and as a last resort the control board as this part is usually pretty expensive.
Good Luck with this!

Oven does not reach set temp


What are using to measure temp ? Are you using a grocery store bi-metal or professional thermal probe ? and further to that, how long are you waiting to check temp. after range "beeps" or announces preheat complete ? The bi-metal type thermometers do take several minutes longer to reach actual temp as opposed to the ranges temp. probe. Does this unit have the "hidden" bake element ? That sounds like a huge temp difference. These units do require an additional 10mins of wait time after announcing ("BEEP") the preheat is complete (check your manual, it should confirm this) Elements don't go "bad" it either comes on (amp draw) or it doesn't.

hope this helps.

good luck

Preheat beep indicator is inaccurate


It's working ok. These often beep after a preset time. It may be set to beep at 10 minutes. Not always at the temp set. It is usually close enough though.
