Question about Kenmore 40494 / 40495 / 40499 Electric Single Oven
If your oven won't get up to temperature, it is likely that either the thermostat needs to be adjusted or one of the elements has gone bad. Both fixes take little more than a screwdriver and a few minutes of your time
Place an oven thermometer inside the oven and shut the door.
Turn on the oven, set it for 350°F (180°C) and let it heat for 30 minutes.
Check the thermometer. Most thermostats are accurate to within 25°F (14°C). If yours is off by more than 50°F (28°C), the thermostat is bad and you will need to have a professional replace it. If your thermostat is off by less than 50°F (28°C), adjust the thermostat.
Locate the adjustment screw. On some thermostats, the adjustment screw is on the back of the thermostat knob; on others it's inside the thermostat shaft.
