How can I adjust oven temperature settings on DCS RDT-305 dual fuel range? I got a top of the line oven thermometer and my temps are way off. Warm=275, 200=325, 300=375, 400=450, 450=510. Can I adjust knob settings in any way?

Why does our GE jt910 oven not heat consistently when baking cookies. the first batch is ok but second batch is always over done?


Buy a small oven thermometer and check the temperature of the heating oven over time. It may not explain it, but you can better adjust the dialed temperature to match the desired temperature.

WMH1163XVD seems to no be on full power. Takes 1 minute to heat up a piece of bacon


1 minute to cook a piece of bacon sounds pretty fast, really.

Try this:

MICROWAVE HEATING POWER TEST


The following test will provide a suitably accurate measurement of the output power of any microwave oven. Variations or errors in performing this test will produce uncertain results. If the line voltage (from the electrical outlet) is low, the magnetron output will be correspondingly low.

Equipment needed:

- Microwave safe container with 1000 mL (1 Liter) gradation.

- Fahrenheit or centigrade thermometer

Procedure:

Pour exactly 1000 mL (1 Liter) of cool tap water into the container. Using the thermometer, stir the water, then measure and record the temperature. For accurate results the water should be about 60 degrees F (20 degrees C).

Place the container on the center of the oven cooking shelf (do not leave the thermometer in the container and remove any metal racks), and heat the water (at full power) for 63 seconds. Use the second hand of a watch, not the oven timer.

After the heating time is completed, immediately remove the container, stir the water, re-measure and record the temperature of the heated water.

Subtract the starting water temperature (step 2) from the ending water temperature (step 3) to obtain the temperature rise.

To determine the output power in watts, multiply the total temperature rise by a factor of 38.75 if you're using a Fahrenheit thermometer or by 70 if you're using a centigrade thermometer.

If the oven is grossly underheating or overheating, then you probably have a bad magnetron.

There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

mini_manual_behind_grille_small.jpgdee77f7.jpgAt our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

What temp for turkey done ?


Always use an oven bag is used to promote even cooking.

Microwave on MEDIUM (50% power) for 7 to 9 minutes per pound rotating dish every 15 minutes. Not recommended for turkey over 12 pounds
Use an instant-read thermometer after cooking. Turkey is done when thermometer reads 180 degrees to 185 degrees F for whole turkey or 170 degrees to 175 degrees F for turkey breast. Insert thermometer through **** in oven bag into inner thigh for whole turkey or into thickest part of breast for turkey breast.
For easy slicing, let stand 10 minutes after removing from microwave oven. To open, carefully cut or **** top of oven bag. NOTE Microwave directions were tested in 600 to 700-watt microwaves. Higher or lower wattage ovens may need adjustment in cooking times.

Wattage Power


Unfortunately, the old owner's manual doesn't say, but you can do a test to see what its heating power is:
