Electric ovens are calibrated behind the temp knob. Pull the knob straight off of the shaft and look at the back of the knob. There should be a metal slide with a scale and a little set screw. Loosen the screw and move the slide in the direction indicated for your needs.

Why doesn't it heat to set temperature?


Hello. In most ovens with an electronic control, the temperature is regulated by 2 things--the sensor and the oven control board. The sensor is simply an electrically resistive device that changes resistance as the temperature increases or decreases. It is connected to the main control board by 2 wires(just a "pigtail") and the main board is supposed to be calibrated to adjust properly. Most control boards have a built-in program by which you can adjust the calibration +/- 35 degrees. If your oven is outside that range, and you're sure that the sensor is good, the connections are good, etc., then the oven control board temp control circuit has gone bad. Keep in mind, when you turn on an electronically controlled oven, the first time it heats up is USUALLY hotter by about 50 degrees--this allows the floor, walls, and ceiling to reach proper temperature. This is called the initial spike. In gas ovens, the user must wait approximately 8-10 minutes AFTER the oven beeps to cook anything. In an exposed-element electric oven, the user waits approximately 10-15 minutes after the beep. In the hidden bake element models, waiting 20-25 minutes after the beep is normal!
Also, keep in mind, ovens can have 60 degree temp swings higher and lower(as long as the midpoint is close to the chosen temp) I hope I've helped you!

OVEN TEMP AT LEAST 75 DEGREES COLDER THAN IT IS SET AT .CAN I ADJUST THIS FRIGIDAIRE GAS RANGE GALLERY SERIES SELF CLEAN ,CONVECTION OVEN .


I appreciate your post, Ronald!

From the information you have provided you would like to calibrate the oven temperature on your Frigidaire range. I was unable to locate any instructions on how to perform a calibration on your oven. I would recommend consulting with a professional technician for proper calibration of your range. I hope this information is helpful. -Matt

We have a 2-year old Viking gas range (model VGCC5304BCC) and lately the oven temperature has beeen running about 25-40 degrees higher than the selected temperature. I cannot find a way to calibrate or...


use a digital thermometer with a probe inside the cavity, normal preheat is 30 mins to 350, wait until the 3rd cycle to see what temps are in the cycle, record high , low temps add and divide. plus or minus 10 are in scope. ex 350 on at 340 off at 360 will avg 350. depending on the serial and age, there is no calibration unless your Electronic thermostat would be suspect. Hope this helps.

Oven needs to be calibrated....it heats approximately 100 degrees below where it should


Not familiar with the brand of course but if your model has an Eaton oven control like this one for Viking Page 23 their is an adjustment screw for calibrating the oven temps. Other controls use an adjustment inside the shaft of the oven control itself.

Go to partstown.com and look up the service manual and calibration steps for your stove.

The oven does not heat to the set temperature. It is usually much hotter


You can have the oven recalibrated by a professional OR you can purchase an oven thermometer and check the temperature yourself. Place the oven thermometer in the oven.Set the oven to a specific temperature. When it indicates it is at that temperature check the thermometer. Adjust your setting by that many degrees. For instance, if you set the temp at 350 and the oven thermometer shows 450, then reduce your temperature setting by 100 degrees each time you use the oven.

Our viking range oven will not heat up more than 180 degrees. The broiler works just fine. It is gas 30" model. Please help give me something to try before I have to call for service.


Hi, unless you can replace the hot surface ignitor for the bake burner on your own, you will need to call a pro to have it done. Don't let the fact that if it glows it should be ok...that isn't the case at all. In any event you'll need this part #12400035, it retail's for approx $75-$100 at most brick & mortar part stores as well as many on-line vendors, so shop around. I typically by my part's at searspartsdirect.com, apwagner.com and amresupply.com, as they tend to have all I need between them. Hope this helps in whatever way you decide to take. If you call a tech, may I suggest calling an authorized "Viking" servicer or one familiar with hi-end appliances. They may cost more, but usually for good reason. Good luck. macmarkus :)
