WB, Your thermostat is shot and must be replaced. The most difficult part of this job is locating one to replace it with. Have the complete Model and Serial number handy... First, try locally. Call a local Commercial Kitchen repair/parts house. Surely theres one nearby, they work on all McDonalds, Wendy's, Restaraunts, etc... cooking equipment. Second, contact the manufacturer; Star Manufacturing International, Inc. 10 Sunnen Drive St. Louis, MO 63143-3800 Phone (314) 781-2777 (800) 264-7827 Fax (800) 264-6666 After you have it, SHUT OFF THE POWER AT THE BREAKER!!! Now try to turn the unit on to VERIFY you have no power. Then remove the t'stat knob. Now remove the screws holding the control panel in place. Tilt the control panel out toward you. Now you can see the t'stat and see how the sensor bulb is routed. (HINT: Take a piece of paper and draw the back side of the t'stat's wire connection locations and wire colors/numbers, BEFORE removing anything.) Remove the wires and the t'stat and route/wire the new one the same way. Another tip; Be extremely careful with the sensor bulbs capillary tube (the small tube connecting the bulb to the t'stat). NO 90 DEGREE BENDS ALLOWED! It is a hollow tube, if it's piched/kinked you can throw it in the trash and buy yourself a new one. (It came packaged as a coil for a reason) As you uncoil it, go slow and easy.

SOURCE: How to set the temperature on the KitchenAid Superba oven/convect

A separate oven thermometer is absolutely necessary in baking. Something similar to this would be cheap and easy. http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?order_num=-1&SKU=10161738

Or you could go for a digital one with a probe.

Kenmore oven shuts off before preheated


On any gas appliance there is a high and a low limit temp stat which could be indipendant or on the gas valve it's self, that is faulty.
When the oven reaches temp, it cuts out. sounds like faulty over heat stat.

Oven temperature on Neff 195305317 circotherm oven


hi remember that electric can kill you even if it is unplugged, if you don't know what components are likely to hold charge or have large inductance get someone else to fix it.

you need to get the service manual as tis will have fault finding charts, part numbers, location of sensors etc. If you can't get manual then:
Not likely to be temp limiter as this cuts out if temp is too hot. Find temp probe, may be ntc, mercury vapour switch etc. take probe out disconnect leads and measure resistance, heat, or cool, probe measure resistance if not significantly different (ie 10k to 100k or 100k to 300k) then probe is shot. Take probe to spares place, get replacement and refit. Be very careful to refit leads exactly as they came out, don't want insulation to melt and oven to become live. test with oven or meat thermometer as new sensor may need calibration. Should be accurate to within 10C or so

hope this helps

Aeg d5701-4 bottom oven slow to heat up and does not reach set temperature fan works


It sounds like the oven element is not working.
To check it, remove rear panel in oven compartment, after running it for a few minutes, it should be very hot to the touch, BE CAREFUL, DO NOT BURN YOUR FINGERS.

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.

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
