Question about Kitchen Ranges

I cleaned my oven recently and no matter what temperature I turn the oven too, it cooks way too hot. I performed a test and set the oven temp to 100 degrees celsius. I inserted a thermometer into the middle rack and after about 20 minutes the thermomeeter read 350 degrees celsius...please help???

If your burner always heats to "high" when it's on--regardless of how you set the burner knob--the switch contacts are shorted closed. Check the circuit for any other grounds, then replace the switch.

Temperature when using frigidare oven, keeps getting hotter and does not cool down

Good Afternoon Andrea,

I see that you're having issues with your Frigidaire oven, and the heating element being red hot the entire time you were cooking no matter how much you turned the temperature down.

I suggest giving your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for at least 2-3 minutes. When power is restored to your oven, you will need to set the clock by entering in the time and pressing start. Preheat the oven, to whatever desired temperature, and if it is still running hotter than it should be, I suggest you contact your local authorized technician. I hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

I'm in the middle of cooking dinner and I got a f3 e2 error and the oven do I get my dinner out? My husband is an elevator mechanic so he's handy...we turned off the breaker to quit...

That code refers to the oven temperature sensor sensing a too hot oven. I suspect what you did to quite the cleaning cycle should help once the temperature cools down the door should open. I am a little confused, did you set the oven to clean while your cooking, or did it do this on its own, or was it preset and yopu forgot it was set to clean? Your temp sensor may be going bad if it just detected a too hot oven while your cooking. If it started cleaning then it may have gotten too hot and this is the safety device to prevent it from overheating. it sounds like it is trying to self clean, its essential that you find the error code sheet, stuck in the stove or oven cabinet somewhere, also check your range settings so that it is not set to auto clean.

I think the oven is not getting hot enough,i have baked three

Buy an oven thermometer to check if the temperature you set the oven at is accurate. You may have a faulty thermostat, but if the temp is only off by a little, you can calibrate the temp setting on the oven by as much as + or - 25 degrees. If you have an LCD screen, then most likely you can adjust it right on there. If not, then the backside of the oven knob can be adjusted + or -. by moving a set screw and turning as needed. Your owner's manual will have a more detailed explanation on this procedure. Douglas

Oven Doesn't Even turn on

The oven thermostat controls the oven temp. It is not working and you need a new one.

Oven cooks at 400 plus degrees when set at 350 degrees

If your problem is temperature do this;
Press "options" Then press "6". Then press "3" to increase or "6" to decrease temp.
Then press "start" to end the calibration.

If you recently used self-cleaning you could have a thermal overload fuse problem.

How do I calibrate the oven temp?

Oven Temperature Adjustment Option for the MSG5770
If you think the oven should be hotter or cooler, you can adjust
it yourself. To decide how much to change the oven temperature,
set the temperature 25°F higher or lower than the temperature
in your recipe, then bake. The results of the “test” should
give you an idea of how much to adjust the temperature.
To adjust the oven temperature:
1. Press the BAKE pad.
2. Enter 550° by pressing the number pads “5, 5, 0”.
3. Press and hold the BAKE pad for several seconds until 0°
appears in the display.
4. Press any number pad to change the temperature. Each time
a pad is pressed, the temperature changes by 5°F.
• Press repeatedly to reach +35°F. Continue pressing
to reduce the temperature up to -35°F.
• If the oven temperature was previously adjusted, the
change will be displayed. For example, if the oven
temperature was reduced by 15°, the display will
show -15°.
5. When you have made the adjustment, press the
CANCEL pad and the time of day will reappear in the
display. The oven will now bake at the adjusted
NOTE: Do not change the temperature setting more than
10° at a time before testing the oven.
It is not necessary to readjust the oven temperature if there
is a power interruption. This adjustment will not affect
broil or clean temperatures.

Oven consistently burns food no matter what temperature setting

Well, must confess, we had this problem once, after cleaning all the knobs. We put them back, reversing the two temp knobs. The correct placement, we found, was the left oven knob, since it is not self cleaning, does not have the word CLEAN. This is the far left knob. Next, from left to right, appearing very simmilar, also with temps 200 to 500, is the right oven temp knob, which does say CLEAN. Third from left is the right oven function knob, with CLEAN, Time Cook, etc, and no temp numbers. Hope your fix is this simple. Hope your cooking is looking good cooking.

Could be a couple things. If your machine is actually failing either a control board or an oven sensor.

Also measuring the temperature can only be done by a tech unless you have a special tool. Oven thermometers are inaccurate. Plus most ranges should vary temp between 50-75 degrees unless has a feature or the more recent ones keep it between 15-25 degrees.

Try the biscuit test, buy some biscuit, brand not important, i just say pillsbury. Cook exactly as recommended on package. If results are a little overcooked or a bit undercook try a feature called Adjusting the oven temperature or Calibrating the oven. This can be done by following the instructions in your book. click support click manuals put in model MER5775QA (notice i took off your models S) open the Use guide, page 14
