There are two elements on oven-both at the top.Grill&Element-I am using the normal oven element but my pizza does not cook through only on the top. How do I bake


Hi Michelle,
You need to preheat a heavy gauge baking tray first and then cook the pizza using the main element only. Also experiment with the position in the oven (eg. high or low).

How do i fix an oven that bakes unevenly


the cooking I can't help with, but the oven I can.

sounds to me like the bottom element or what controls it is not working. the reason the ones on top are cooking is that the top element is coming on and browning them on top after the heat has made the dow rise and cook.
so essentially everything is cooking from the top down. so when the temp drops its using the top element to heat with and thus browns the top rack.

check ur elements to make sure both work, if so, move on to the thermostat which I have to be the culprit many times.

I have a Tricity Bendix Built in oven TBS749. I have problems when baking as previously tried and tested recipes do not bake properly with burning on the top but the inside not cooked. I had noticed that...


Have you tried to turn the oven on to preheat and observe that the upper and lower heating elements alternately go on and off? Could be that 1 of your elements is burnt out and need replaced.

My Maytag MGR5750ADW oven will take forever to preheat. It does get hot, but the preheat light takes a very long time to go out. Food takes much longer to cook as the oven does not seem to get up to temp.


Hello there and welcome to fixya
When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out. You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results. If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. To determine if the heating element is burned out, watch the part testing video at the bottom of this page. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component. When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly. If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details. Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

Smoke comes out of top when cleaning oven. Oven takes way to much time to cook. Oven does not cook evenly. Items cooked in oven are burnt outside and almost raw inside.


hello jjm... these ovens have two heating elements. when one is bad they still heat but they bake way too slowly. this is the problem here. the fix is to replace the bad element but in my repair service I always replace both heating elements since when one goes the other is usually not far behind.

Seems to be taking a long time to cook


To preheat oven just select the temp you intend to cook at and wait until the red light goes out,it is then preheated
Then you can put your food in and carrying on cooking.
Yes you do put it on fan symbol, but make sure it is on the right one , as some ovens have fan only as well as fan and heat.
Plz rate this solution.
thanks.

Lengthy preheat time


Hello. I am a Viking factory trained tech. and that is actually a normal preheat time.
Now if it undercooks that is another problem.
You may need your thermostat calibrated or replaced. If you think you are up to calibrating it yourself let me know. If it is the kind that doesn't have any white silicone in the center of the knob stem then it is quit a pain in the neck, but if it does have the silcone then it is a lot easier.

Viking Oven


you may have a couple problems here or just one.

1. Check the incoming gas pressure I believe on this oven it requires 7" of water column to operate.
2. check the output gas pressure at the gas valve it should be around 3.5" water column.

Looks like to me that either your utility company might have restricted the supply pressure or you may have a faulty gas valve or the gas valve might just need adjusted.

Hope this helps you
please rate me

Amana Convection oven not controlling temp


I have just checked the baking guide in the manual and have found that it may not be us after all. (Maybe this is why they telll us to read the whole manual. Well, I never have) According to the cooking time for Baking, the range is very extensive. For example, an angel cake at 350 could take from 28-50 minutes, buscuits at 375-400 could take 8-16 minutes, layer cakes at 350-375 could take 25-40 minutes, pound cakes at 325-350 could take 45-70 minutes and fresh pies at 400-450 could take 35-60 minutes. Basically, the baking directions on the box means absolutely nothing to use Amana oven owners. We have no choice but to cook our food or baked goods until they are cooked, whenever that may be. :) Linda
