Re: Oven will not heat to right temp
You can calibrate you oven try presiing and holding the bake button for 3-5 secs. it should beep and put a 00 in the display. using the temp up or down arrows you should be able to adjust ther temp to a max of 35 degrees + or -. after setting to desird 25 presss start and that setting will be ingrained in the memory forever(or until you change it again)power failure will not effect it either . of that doesnt work gimme the modle and ill ck further

If you still have your Frigidaire Oven there is an reason why it take longer to bake. Frigidaire Oven has an safety limit control inside the oven and it is place on top of your oven. We know that the heat go up,so that control is cutting the heat will the thermostat is asking for heat.I had a Frigidaire oven, I change 2 control a the end a purchase a new one. When I scrap the old one I notice that problem,
There are two possibilities for problems with the range. If it has a "timed bake" setting for the oven then it's possible that the last person who used it neglected to return the setting to the manual mode. In "timed bake" mode, the oven will heat to approx. 160 - 185 degrees, what is called a "keep warm" temp. It will maintain that heat setting regardless of what you set the oven temp control to, as long as you're not in the time frame that it's set to bake. This will make trying to bake anything a very difficult procedure. The second possibility is that the oven glo coil igniter is cracked and will not heat to the proper temp to allow the electricity to flow through it to the oven gas safety valve to allow it to open and let the gas flow to the burner. These things are ceramic and for some reason crack in normal use. If it has a top broiler, that unit is obviously good. Unfortunately, the igniters are seldom interchangeable. You would need a tech to check the igniter with an ohmmeter.
try turning your breaker off for 20 minutes, then try it again,, if this does not help it could have burnt out a element or the main board has went out,,, also make for sere you are getting the full 220 volts to the unit,, this will involve taking the unit out
does the oven bake properly when it does reach temps? if this is a newer oven, with a hidden bake element, they do take longer to preheat so may not have any problems, just give it about 15 minutes to preheat. if it is older and doesnt bake right, then you may have a bad bake element. the unit will heat but wont bake right. unplug the oven and take the bake element to your local parts house, they can check it and sell you a new one if needed.
