Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Oven does not hold heat, the temp on the exterior dial is different from the interior heat. I tried to bake a cake (again, after being serviced SEVERAL times over the last 2 yrs) and after double the baking time, the cake never cooked properly because it never raised. God forbid I had dropped it on my toes, they would have been broken. One repair person told me that their is a 50 degree range.... whatever. Horrible company, crappy product, never again a Thermador.

    No, with everything that has to bake. The oven does not hold the temp. every thing takes way longer and ends up ruining a lot of dishes.

    great there is a vent from the oven to let air circulate if this vent isnt working right then the oven wont cook right look in your owners manuel and see if you can find the vent sorry but i dont have acess to thermodore specs then bake something and hold your hand over the vent and see if it has good air flow if not then the vent may have been instaled improperly at the factory or there is an obstruction

  • robert samples Apr 02, 2008

    air has to flow around things to cook otherwise they are just siting in heat if the air dont move ten it dont cook are cakes the only thing you have a problem with if it is change the rack position lots of time that helps

Oven burning food


Don't worry my wife does the same thing. Not sure if your talking about the range top or the baking potion. We'll assume the baking area. If your using cheap bakeware that could be part of the problem try using a different cake or loaf pan of heavy construction. Also you may try reducing your temp in 25 degree increments to see if your oven runs hot. Example buy 3 cheap frozen pizzas and if they say value at 400 try 375 , 350, and 325. If one of those temps gives the desired result assist accordingly and consider contracting Bosch customer service to inquire about how to fix thermostat errors.hope that helps I didn't have much to work with.

Why do cakes sometimes collapse while baking?


helllo dis.... There are many things that can cause cakes to fall in the middle.... Jumping, etc., around the baking area is unlikely to be a problem except with very delicate sponge or angel food cakes. More likely, cakes fall when the crust appears to be done, but the batter is not baked through the middle. An uneven baking temperature is a frequent culprit; check the temperature of your oven with a separate baking thermometer, and be certain that your oven holds a steady heat through the entire baking period. Some older ovens preheat properly, then cycle off and drop the temperature after 15 or 20 minutes, which causes the uncooked portion of the cake to fall.

Less likely but possible problems could be inaccurate proportions of baking powder or baking soda if the cake is made from scratch. This could occur with cake mixes if sour milk or buttermilk is used instead of regular milk; the additional acid in sour milk requires additional baking soda to rise properly. Eggs that are not beaten properly, or perhaps beaten too much for the type of cake being made, might also cause problems. Joe

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!

Things bake unevenly. Cakes get brown on edges


first make sure you are not blocking a rack.air needs to circulate from the bottom to the top.never cover a rack with tin foil or a large pan. if alls good you may have a temperature problem.check temp if its off raise oven temp as high as it goes hold bake button untill it beeps it will display 0 go up to raise temp up down to lower you can only adjust 35 deg.Good luck!

KitchenAid Oven Temp.- Bottomside of Pizza or Cake stays uncooked


I have a 2yo Kitchenaid oven, and my advice is first, don't use convection for cakes or pizza. Use the thermal oven. For pizza preheat to 500 degrees, then put the pizza on the lowest rack, and bake for 7-8 minutes.This way the bottom browns, and the top doesn't get broiled from the top element coming on during the bake cycle.

As for cakes, again place them on the low rack so that they get bottom heat. I keep my eye on the oven and when the broil element comes on I stick a piece of foil over the cake until it goes off. Otherwise it will set the top and the cake won't rise as much. Even doing that cakes don't rise as much as they did in my old oven, and they brown too much on top.

The convection oven does a good job of cookies, and the broil mode is okay.

I wish I hadn't bought this oven, but I didn't know about the upper (broil) element coming on during the bake cycle until I'd had it for awhile, and it was too late to return it.

If anyone's shopping for an oven, ask questions, and don't get one that maintains the oven temperature by activating the broil element when baking.

Cake texture is course and bottom of cake underbaked


Did you recently change either mixers or brand of any ingredients?

Also, you could be getting heat from only the TOP element. Turn the oven on and look at both. The bottom should be brighter than the top for regular baking.

Items are not baked all the way through


Put a thermometer in the oven to see how the temp is vs what you set it at. If temp is off by more than 25 degrees replace the oven sensor. I cannot see your repyl due to some tech issue w/ the site, so it may be a day or so before I can reply again. Please leave feedback for me if appropriate. Thanks

Tappan double oven


I have the digital timer oven and also cannot find the manual. You have to set the bake time timer, I think for 3 hours. Then you set the oven knob on clean and turn on the temp knob, probably to full but I don't think it matters. When you engage the lock, the clean light should come on/ When the oven reaches high temp, the lock light will also be on.
