You will need to look at and replace the heating element or thermostat in your oven. Before you do that, flip your circuit breaker off and then turn it back on, this may restore full power to your oven

    Michael, since the therm. is $177.00 and the heating element is $19.00 what are the chances it is only the heating element, is there a way to test it? Jeff

  • Jeffery Crow Jun 04, 2010

    Michael, I am not sure if you saw my secondary question, but if the therm. is $177.00 and the coil is $18.00 any ideas that would make (testing?) a better spending choice?

Sounds like the thermostat is out of calibration. IE- you set the temp at 350, but the actual temp is only 275, resulting in undercooked food. I repair comercial restaurant equipment, and use an infra red thermometer to check actual temp in the oven, against the set temp.

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

Either the temperature sensor has a problem (shorted so the control thinks the oven is colder than the actual temp) or a relay feeding the bake or broil element is welded shut and causing one of the elements to stay on. If the elements are still heating when the "ON" indicator is NOT lit, then you have a welded relay. You need the control board repaired.

Simpson Evolution 904 wall oven cooks very unevenly


I agree, the heating is very uneven in our oven, however, when I calibrated the temperature with a thermocouple, I discovered that the temperature gauge was 25C too hot! That is, if I set the oven temperature gauge to 155C, it was actually 180C inside the oven! Taking this in to account, it is now much easier to cook things without them burning.

Uneven rising & baking in convection oven


I repair commercial cooking equipment for a living. When a customer complains about uneven cooking the #1 thing that these manufacturers ask is..... are they turning (180*) the baking sheets half way thru the cook cycle. #2 are they staggering the pans front to back & side to side. It's kind of a pain but, works for the commercial ones.

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
