Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

By mistake, a knife with a plastic handle "baked" in my Amana oven on a very high temperature. I have cleaned it off best I can but the smell is terrible and there is soot like stuff in the oven. Is it safe to use the self cleaning feature of my oven to try to get rid of the residue? Thank you

My maid left a tupperware container in the oven and I baked a casserole in the self cleaning oven. How do I clean it?


You will need to physically remove as much as possible. A plastic putty knife or similar will work best. Use a hair dryer to gently heat the plastic to make it pliable and easier to remove. The oven will need a thorough cleaning once you have removed as much plastic as you can.

Amana Convection Oven - Not heating in normal bake mode, but works otherwise


I will say that is the control board that is not working properly. Have you try to unplugged for phew minutes?, this will reset the current settings. If not, I will star replacing the control board. Good Luck!.

Please guys help me, every time i baked the cookies , its always burned :(


The oven temperature may be too high. Get an oven thermometer and set it in the center of your oven and check to see if the temperature on your oven matches it. Many ovens run 25 degrees or more off of the set temperature. My mother's oven used to need to be set at 325 if she wanted it to bake at 350.


If the cookies are black on the bottom, but doughy in the centers, this may also be a case where the oven temperature is too high.
Another problem may be that you are baking them too long. Cookie baking is a precise thing. It may seem duh-obvious, but be sure you use a timer, lol. If the recipe calls for 10 minutes, and they are always burned, start checking them at 8 minutes.

If you are substituting honey for the sugar in the recipe, remember to lower the oven temperature by 25 degrees and decrease the liquids by a small amount to compensate. Honey browns/burns much faster than sugar.

Hope these suggestions help. =)

When the oven is set, it heats for about five minutes. Then "F-2" appears on the screen and it shuts itself off completely.


F2 Oven temperature is too high
1. Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).
2. For SELF CLEAN models: check door lock operation.
3. Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.

30 " Convection wall oven


F2 During BAKE Control senses oven temperature above 615F-630F If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature. F2 During CLEAN C ontrol senses oven temperature above 915F-930F If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective. Check door lock switches.

F2 error


HI, the oven control has sensed a very high oven temperature during baking or cleaning.

F-2 code


HI. this code can come up for two different reasons. it could during a bake session or a cleaning situation as well. I will list the details below.

During Baking(((f2)))

During a baking session, if the control senses an active oven temp above 615f-630f, this code will appear.

If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.

Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit , not actual oven temperature.

During Cleaning(((f2)))

During a cleaning session, if the control senses an active oven temp above 915f-930f, this code will appear.

If actual over temperature condition occurred: Look for welded relay contacts. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC).

If no over temperature condition occurred: Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective. Check door lock switches.

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
