Question about Ovens

1 Answer

Inconsistant oven temperature

My Ariston oven was not heating properly, would only get to 165 Celsius when set to 250 Celsius (maximum). I have since removed the thermostat from the clips (attempting to see if moving it to a new location would help) and have ended up replacing it to it's original position.
Now the oven gets hotter than what it's set on - by an inconsistent amount. Sometimes 20 degrees hotter, sometimes 60 degrees hotter.

So, would it seem that I should replace the thermostat? Or does the inconsistency suggest a different component is faulty?

    FIXED! I found the problem to be a damaged control - meaning the temperature adjustment ring was sometimes turning with the main stem. I have rigged it now so the ring can't move - good as gold!

Kenmore oven take a long time to heat up, but bakes just fine once it reaches temperature. Is there anything I can do to speed up the heating process?


Start earlier?
>> check all elements for current,
check seals
check temperature calibration (allowed to be 15% ie 180 can be 153 or 207 Celsius!) no wonder Margs' scones cook faster at her house :-)

I have a kenmore mark 1 oven in my apartment and the oven temperature says 1-9 instead of going in degrees such as 100, 350 etc. I am wondering which number stands for which heat?


This Conversion table is from the old Gas Mark scale
I'm thinking it should be right or at least pretty close.
You could also get a cheap ($5-7) oven thermometer from local grocery store.
Put it inside oven to check actual temp achieved.

Gas mark Fahrenheit Celsius
1⁄4 225° 107°
1⁄2 250° 121°
1 275° 135°
2 300° 149°
3 325° 163°
4 350° 177°
5 375° 191°
6 400° 204°
7 425° 218°
8 450° 232°
9 475° 246°

I sthere a way to calibrate my oven temperature? It is off by about 35 degrees. Temperature is lower than display.


Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.

To Adjust the Oven Temperature (do not use Bake or Broil while adjusting the oven temperature): note: Your oven control was factory set in the (Fahrenheit) °F Temperature Display Mode. To change for (Celsius) °C, see page 15.
1. Press & hold the BAKE key pad and release after the display shows the factory temperature setting of 00. note: If the oven temperature has been previously adjusted from the factory setting, the current temperature adjusted value will appear in the display instead.
2. You may increase the oven temperature in 5°F (1°C) increments with each press of the uP arroW pad to a maximum oven adjustment of +35°F (+18°C). You may also adjust the oven temperature downward in 5°F (1°C) increments with each press of the doWn arroW pad (total range of -35°F to +35°F (-18°C to +18°C).
3. If you do not want to keep the display adjustment, press the clear oFF pad before the oven control beeps. This will cancel the temperature adjustment procedure. To start this procedure over again begin with step 1 above OR;
4. If you want to keep the adjustment, wait until the oven control beeps once.
5. The oven temperature adjustment has be accepted by the oven control and the display will return to the time of day.

Is the temperature in celsius or farenheit


If it is Celsius it would only go up to 250, Fahrenheit would be marked to about 500. You can download a user manual here.
You can do conversions between celsius and Fahrenheit here.

Hi Experts! I'm having problems with my Ariston FO87CIX oven. The oven turns on but if I try to set the temperature the oven turn off and the time resets. It's weird but I've worked out that any...


One of 2 things, either the pt100(sensor) is faulty, or the control is defective. Unfortunately you need a digital multimeter to check the sensor first. When in doubt, replace both and all will be well.

No temperature control


It sounds as though the thermostat is faulty, if you cannot control the heat, then I would suggest fitting a new thermostat.

Got a fan assisted gas oven. Trying to bake a cake


Temperature control with gas ovens is not an exact science. However the control should be better than you say.

Have you tried reducing the set temperature to compensate for the 'overshoot'. It may be worth a try.

My oven turns off on me after only a minute never heating up fully


Could be caused by either of following;

1. Faulty thermostat.
2. Faulty thermal cut out switch. (controls power to cooling fan).
3. Faulty cooling fan (not fan inside oven).

Test thermostat by setting thermostat to low temperature like 60 oC. If oven gets much hotter then its a faulty thermostat.
To test cooling fan and thermal switch take oven out and remove top or rear panels to expose components.
When oven gets hot the cooling fan should turn on. If it doesn't then check to see if there is a mains voltage present.
If mains current exist but fan is not turning then replace fan. If mains voltage is not present then its the thermal switch.
