Question about Frigidaire FEF336BC Electric Kitchen Range
I have a beaumark range that's about 4 years old. The oven won't heat to the set temperature. It doesn't get above 320. The broiler works just fine.
IF THIS IS A GAS RANGE, AND IS USED ALOT, 4YEARS IS ABOUT THE LIFE EXPECTANCY OF THE IGNITOR FOR THE OVEN. IF THE IGNITOR IS WEAK, IT MAY NOT OPEN THE SAFETY VALVE. WITH A FLAT IGNITOR, IT REQUIRES 3.3AMPS TO OPEN THE VALVE. IF IT IS A ROUND IGNITOR, IT REQUIRES 2.8 AMPS TO OPEN THE OVEN IGNITOR.
IF THIS IS AN ELECTRIC OVEN WITH AN ELECTRONIC CONTROL, I WOULD SUSPECT THE OVEN SENSOR AS THE DEFECTIVE PART. AT ROOM TEMP, IT SHOULD READ ABOUT 1084 OHMS OF RESISTANCE.
IF IT IS A MECHANICAL CONTROL(WITH A KNOB) IT MAY BE ADJUSTABLE BY REMOVING THE KNOB AND INSERTING A THIN SCREWDRIVER UP THE SHAFT OF THE CONTROL AND TURNING A SCREW IN THE SHAFT TO CALIBRATE THE TEMP.
