The middle knob that controls the oven is worn and slips around the part that turns the oven on and off, and regulates the temperature. It does turn the oven on, but I can't control the temp. Please advise

How do I start the oven? I want to cook a pizza


Open the oven and make sure it is empty nod one rack is near the middle level. Turn the knob that says OFF to BAKE. Then turn the knob with all the numbers to the temperature that Theo Sri toons on the box tell you to use. Allow the oven to heat up for 10 minutes. It may beep when it is up to temp or a red light will turn off to let you know it is ready. Put the pizza in the oven on middle rack. Take it out according to box instructions ( usually 8 to 15 minutes). That pizza out by sliding it onto a plate. Turn off the oven and eat the pizza. If it is not done completely, leave it in longer next time. Enjoy

I think it has a faulty thermostat, can this be repaired or a new thermostat fitted


Usually the best way is to replace the thermostat. (there is a gas filled tube which operates
a microswitch to regulate temperature). On some models there is an adjustment on the back
of the knob for temperature (using an oven thermometer). I have adjusted the switch on
newer units but it requires extreme patience to get the temperature setting correct as well.
The control is adjusted by 1/10th of a turn to adjust, then reattached to the control panel
and tested using an oven thermometer. When it is adjusted correctly, then loctite or
superglue is applied to the adjustment screw to secure it. Make sure to shut off power
before attempting any adjustments. Hope this is helpful.

Bottom oven element stays hot will not cut off


In order for the element to stay on, the oven switch must be broken. No details are provided, but if your oven is like most, you have an Oven Selector knob for ~bake, broil, clean and another knob for Temperature selection.

Look at your Oven Selector knob closely to make sure it is not slipping on the shaft. It may be as simple as the knob being broken, and even though you are turning it to the Off position, the switch may still be on. If the knob is indeed turning the switch shaft, then it is most likely the switch stuck in the own position. Thanks for using FixYa.

Temperature does not always reach set point of 425 F.


Oven will not hold correct temperature:------- This can be caused if temperature probe not working.Resistance across temperature probe leads at room temperature (70°F) should be approximately 1096 ohms.----------- Other possibility for this problem is :--- Temperature control not calling for heat.When heat is required, there should be continuity between terminals 6 and 7 on temperature control.-----------Inadequate or improper ventilation.Check ventilation hood. Verify draw and make up air adjustment.-----------If all this checked out ok then its calibration problem.For calibration follow this procedure:--
It can be problem with temperature controller. TEMPERATURE CONTROLLER (Standard-Control Models Only) The calibration of the temperature controller should not be changed until sufficient experience with cooking results has definitely proved that the temperature controller is not maintaining proper oven temperatures. Before any recalibration is attempted, the oven temperature should be checked by the following procedure: 1. Remove all trays and pans from the oven. 2. Place a thermocouple or a reliable mercury oven-type thermometer at the center of the middle rack. 3. Turn the oven ON and set the temperature control knob to 400°F. 4. The amber "heat on" light will go out when the oven temperature is reached. 5. Allow three cycles for the temperature to stabilize. 6. Read the thermocouple or thermometer immediately after the light goes out for the third time, and again immediately after it comes on the next time. 7. If the average of these readings varies by more than 10°F from the dial setting, recalibrate by the following procedure. Recalibration should be attempted only by a competent service technician. Use the following procedure to recalibrate the oven: 1. Loosen the two set screws that secure the temperature-control knob to the temperature-control shaft. 2. Remove the knob from the shaft, being careful not to rotate the knob or shaft. 3. Replace the knob on the shaft so that the indicator mark on the knob points directly at the temperature that was measured at the center of the oven. 4. Re-check the oven calibration. ----------- Part number for temperature probe is 1181996 and you can order if from the Southbend service center. -------- If you want the manual and wiring diagram for your oven.Please click the link directly:-- http://www.retrevo.com/search/v2/jsp/mytrevo/myTrevo.jsp?page=man ----------- after you click the link,a page will open in that you fill the 5 letter number.And click the "download now " option.It will ask you to save or discard.Click the save option and download will start.It will take 2 mins to download.Then click the download file to open it.And go through the manual.------------This will help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Can no longer read the temperatures around the oven knob


On the 720EF the numbers are recessed behind a small glass panel, so I think you are not talking about the same unit. If all else fails, I suggest you buy an oven thermometer from say Lakeland - they are about 4 to 5 pounds and are good. Run the oven, making a note where the marker is and see what temperature the thermometer gives.
Failing that, run the oven with the thermometer in all the time and experiment to see what the control; knob is pointing at for any given temperature.

XL 44 Gas Range Oven temperature problem


hi If the oven doesn't heat evenly or doesn't heat at all, the oven thermostat may be malfunctioning. First, determine how much the temperature in the oven is off from the control setting. To do this, put an oven thermometer on a center rack inside the oven and turn the oven on for about 20 minutes, with the thermostat set at any range between 300 degrees and 400 degrees Farenheit. If the oven thermometer reads 25 degrees or more lower or higher than the oven control setting, the thermostat should be recalibrated. Here's how to calibrate the thermostat:

Step 1: Pull off the thermostat knob on the control panel. Behind the knob are two screws holding a round, notched plate. Loosen these screws, but do not remove them.

Step 2: With a screwdriver, change the notch setting on the notched plate by turning the plate counterclockwise; for every eighth of a turn, the oven temperature goes up about 25 degrees Farenheit. To turn the heat down, turn the plate clockwise.

Some thermostats can be adjusted by turning a screw inside the control knob shaft housing. To do so, remove the knob and insert a screwdriver into the shaft so that the screwdriver blade engages a screw slot. Turn the screwdriver counterclockwise about one-eighth of a turn to raise the heat about 
25 degrees Farenheit. Here's how to test a malfunctioning thermostat:

Step 1: Test the thermostat with a VOM (multimeter) set to the RX1 scale. The thermostat is located directly on the back of the control knob that regulates the heat. To gain access to the thermostat, remove the back service panel to the control panel.

Step 2: Disconnect one electrical lead wire from a terminal of the thermostat and clip one probe of the VOM to each thermostat terminal. If the thermostat is in working order, the meter will register zero. If the needle jumps to a higher reading, the thermostat is faulty and should be replaced.

Step 3: If necessary, replace the thermostat with a new one of the same type.

If you need to replace the thermostat, follow these guidlines:

Step 1: Disconnect the terminal wires to the thermostat and pull off the control knob.

Step 2: Remove the retaining screws. On some ranges, there is a wire running from the thermostat into the oven. This wire operates a sensing bulb that controls the thermostat. The sensing bulb is usually held by a bracket; unscrew this bracket to remove the bulb. Then carefully slip out the wire, the bulb, and the thermostat.

Step 3: Install the new thermostat using a reverse procedure.
