This is a simple fix as long as the oven is heating properly and the only problem is that the temp seems higher than what the temperature control knob indicates...

Purchase an inexpensive oven thermometer from the hardware store and place it in the center of the oven. Set the temperature control knob to 350 degrees F.

Check the temperature indicated on the thermometer in the oven after 20 minutes. If it's not within 5 degrees of 350, you'll need to adjust the oven's temperature control.

Turn the oven off.

Pull off the temperature control knob. You can usually pull it off by hand, pry it off with a thin screwdriver, or slide a piece of cord up behind it and pull.

Note which kind of temperature control knob you have. There are two types: The first has a screw in the shaft of the knob; the second has an adjustment dial on the back of the knob.

Adjust the temperature with the first type by turning the screw in the shaft with a screwdriver. Turn it clockwise to lower the temperature; turn it counterclockwise to raise the temperature. Turn the screw just a little bit in the appropriate direction.

Adjust the temperature with the second type of knob by turning the dial on the back of the knob. (This dial is held in place with a screw or a clip that will need to be removed.) Raise the temperature setting by turning the dial counterclockwise; lower it by turning the dial clockwise. The notches are typically in 5 or 10-degree increments.

Test the oven temperature again.

Repeat until you're in the right temperature range.

Good Luck!

Black smoke coming out oven when cooker and oven on at same time


sounds like the debris from previous cooking is burning. I would suggest cleaning it first. If it's not happening when one or the other is on it might be because what ever is in there is burning at a higher temp. or two it could be that the element is getting too hot and is burning the metal itself. How old is the oven, what kind and cooker? do you mean the stove part? if it's the stove part there might be a leak from the top into the stove -older stoves - the back left burner also got heat from the oven. when cooking you could but a pot or pan on it and not have to turn it on.

Electric stove oven burning food?


if your oven is over cooking and or burning everything ,more than likely its your temp.thermostat it is not that hard to replace,before you do that go down to your nearest home depot or lowes or appliance store and get a portable thermostat they usually crome in color,take and set your oven to a temp like 350 for example put your new t.stat inside your oven and keep checkin to make sure it dont go above 350 if it does then you will need to replace the thermostat.to get to it first pull the t.stat knob off remember its the one you set the oven temp.with unplug range pull stove out away from wall so you can get behind it,you will have to take off all the screws that hold your cover panel on the screws are usually 5/16 nut driver.take the two screws off the front right behind where the temp knob is,mark the wires so that you do not forget where they go,, you dont want to hook them up wrong.it can cause alot more problems if they are put on wrong ok now,open oven door and you will see on the inside of the oven a copper wire that goes from the temp.control to inside your ovenall you have to do is take the wire and feed it through the back pull it out and take to your nearest appliance store make sure you write the model number and brand of the stove pick up the new one and put new one back on, put panel back on plug range in,and set temp back to 350 put the portable thermometer back inside oven should be good to start baking again

I purchased my home last year and the previous owner didn't leave a manual. I also hear a loud banging sound when the oven heats up and cools down. I need to know the best approach to clean the oven.


your stove is going from room temp soy 65 to 70 degrees up three hundred in a couple of minutes that chance in temp shocks the inside and the metal expands and contracts and that should be the bang you hear my gas stove does the same thing it should have a cleaning cycle it gets so hot inside that it melts away or burns everything but you should be able to get cleaner a walmart or home depot or even lowes you should be able to download manuals on line and that will save you from printing a thousand pages

your oven/stove thermo-couple has gone bad and senses too much heat too soon before its actually hot and shuts off the gas supply,it is located inside the oven cavity in a clip on the top of the oven cavity and is normally replaced with the oven control dial as a calibrated unit

Wall oven too hot,at 350 setting is almost 400 degrees burns food


I have a very old GE wall mount oven. Original to around 1960. You can take the temp control knob off and there is an adjustment on the back of it. Easy peasy and only need a screwdriver.

Tappan Oven overheats!!



If you have electronic controls, you'll need either the temperature probe (about $60.00) or the clock (about $150.00). You can test the temperature probe from behind the machine. It should read about 1080 ohms at room temperature. if the probe is good, replace the clock.

If you have mechanical oven controls, you need a new thermostat. Is the too high temp consistent? (i.e. runs at 375F +/- 25F?) If so, you can usually adjust the thermostat **** to read closer to the actual temperature.
