Hot point range - model #RG85080PA1WH


Your oven igniter has gone bad, even though it still glows, they just wear out and don't open the gas valve to ignite the gas.

Here is the one for your model:

I would like to remove the fuses that control the stove top on my Maytag oven so that i can use only the oven. ( i do not need to use the burners and do want to risk turning on the range top because i...


Hello, there no such thing as a fuse to control the top burns, if your Maytag is gas or electric.
The gas goes through a regulator to keep the range gas pressure @ 2lb. Then gas goes into aluminum manifold system for the top burners where each burners has a fuel valve in the manifold. Off of this manifold is another aluminum pipe with a little adjustment valve for the setting the flame on the oven burner in the oven.



Mama, it sound really dangerous with you stacking things on top of your kitchen range. Even when the oven is on it will vent hot oven air in the back of the top of range. Are you familiar with the Fire Triangle. Fire...needs three things, fuel, air, and ignition to burn. I hate to say it, but you have all three of these component to have fire in your home. By stacking things on top of your kitchen range.



Now, just a little word of advise here. DO NOT STACK STUFF ON or NEAR your kitchen stove, heater for you home or even around light bulbs and power cords. Ms. it seems that you are a very intelligent young lady. Just remember the FIRE-TRAIANGLE----it could possibly safe your live and home. I wish you many years in your life experience through time.

Lower element stop working, wouldn't heat past 140 degrees, then tried to used the stove top and those stop working completely. Is there a safety feature to cuts the stove top off? Also is the element...


Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly

This sounds as if you have lost half of the power to your Oven. It can be from a partially tripped main Circuit Breaker for the Oven or an internal wiring problem of a burned wire or terminal. It can also be the range control itself. but I doubt that since you said the burners also do not work (depending on model) If you have separate burner controls definatly NOT the range control.

If you pass your model number we can better help you. The fact that the lower element is only reaching 140 degrees is pretty much indicating that your oven is operating on 110V vs 220V. The causes again are input power, oven wiring or the range control.

Reset the Oven CB and check BOTH ends of the range cord (if you have one) for signs of hot terminals. For a direct connection look closely at the terminal board where the house wiring connected to the oven.

With a MODEL number I can look at manuals and diagrams to better assist you. Please pass that complete MODEL number in any future responses. Most any future response I provide after I get a MODEL number will involve using a meter and opening the oven to troubleshoot.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,
Kelly

I have a frigidaire stove that heats to 50 degrees hotter than the know setting. Can it be adjusted to read correctly?


There is a calibration method to adjust the oven thermostat plus/minus 35 degrees if it is a digital display. The method varies depending on the model range. This calibration method is used to adjust the thermostat if it is not keeping proper tempature. For example if you are setting the oven to 350 and the actual temp it is keeping is 325 then you could use the calibration method to adjust it plus 25 degrees to correct the temp. Just so you know electric ovens will keep a pretty even temp but gas ovens will vary by 40 or more degrees to keep an "average" temp. For example the burner will come on when the oven is 330 degrees and turn off at 370. 330+370 then divide by 2=350. So a oven thermometer may not show you the temp you set it at in a gas oven but does not mean the oven temp is off.

Not the right temp in the oven 100 degrees off


I have a kenmore gas range with digital display that will let me increase the temperature up to 35 degrees f*. It says to press BAKE for 6 sec., then use the number pad to increase or decrease then press START.
Hope this helps

Translate temp gauge numbers to degrees


I recommend you buy a cheap oven thermometer and check the oven temperature yourself. As a gasfitter I know temperature conversions (numbers to degrees) are approximate and I think may be done on purpose so consumers won't complain if they put a thermometer int he oven and it differs from the thermostat. Check the temperature in the centre of the oven. do not use pans and trays that fill the sheld as gas ovens need room to circulate the hot air. Also do not place items in the oven so the top of it is near the top of the oven - otherwise it will burn. I have found when cooking a chicken it needs to be turned otherwist the bottom of it may not be cooked.

My oven is burning my baked goods, but shows the right temp with a thermometer. Do I have to turn the dial to broil and then back to the desired temp? Even if the rack is in the middle, everything burns....


If it is convection bake you have to turn the temp down (25 degrees or so) that is listed in the recipe.

The broil setting is not used to bake because it operates differently from the bake setting. So, don't go to the broil setting at all.
The element for bake is under the floor of the oven. You have not indicated whether it is gas or electric, but both of these can have issues with the burner or element.

If you are baking on the correct setting and the oven is heating from the bottom, not the top, this can be caused by hot spots that are created by elements/burners.

to check, look under the floor of the oven. Turn the bake heat up to high and see if the flame is uneven. For an electric oven, the color of the element should be evenly red, no brown spots.

If you are using an oven thermometer, move the thermometer to the spot in the oven that seems to be burning things the most.

My oven burns everything.


Use a 'oven thermometer' in the oven and determine the 'actual temperature' in the oven. Your knob setting is off (not calibrated) and the oven is hotter than the control knob setting.

Burning hot oven door


As far as I'm concerned this is a safety hazard and not acceptable be any means. No oven face should reach temperatures that can cause serious harm to the consumer. For some reason the door is not releasing the hot air built up between the glass sheets. When the oven is running, can you feel hot air escaping through the top of the door ? Also, is there hot air coming out at the sides of the door ?
