Have you checked your oven sensor? If it is shorted or open then the control won't function right. The ohms reading should be around 1100 ohms.

This other video shows how most electric ovens work. It might be a different brand but basically they are similar:

SOURCE: CRG9700 - OVEN TEMPERATURE BIG FLUCTUATIONS

biggest issue with any gas oven is a faulty ignitor, not maintaining oven temp, too long to preheat, taking too long to cook, possible slight gas smell during operation, all signs of a bad ( or going bad) ignitor

SOURCE: Oven temperature does not get hot enough.

Hi, It sounds like the ignitor might be getting weak and opening the gas valve conditantly. Try setting a temperature and watch to see the ignitor glow. The flame should ignite within 30-45 seconds. If the flame ignites to heat rith away, it should get up to temp before shutting down.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further with this issue.

Thanks
Vic

Oven getting hot enough/not cooking from the bottom


On modern electronic control ranges, the oven temperature sensor
is the part that regulates the oven temperature. If it is not working properly it could be the reason why the range or oven won't start. This part can be found inside the oven on the rear wall near the top. Most modern ovens will display a fault code if the oven sensor is at fault. If you think the sensor may be the issue you can check the resistance with a multi-meter but will need to know the correct resistance of the sensor at room temperature. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test.

Single element stove oven, doesn't get hot enough


Your oven probably has a feature called a hidden bake element. The element is located beneath the floor of the oven. (Because of this, NEVER put aluminum foil on the bottom of the oven because it will get hot enough to melt the aluminum foil and make it bond to the bottom of your oven.) You can adjust the temperature of your oven through the electronic oven controls. Check your owner's manual for how to do this.

Amica oven door gets so hot that my child has burnt hes hands and needed medical attention


Amica is a European brand, I recommend you contact the company headquarters or a competant local repair shop. Any oven left at a very high temperature for a long period of time gets pretty hot, though, and an eleven month old baby has pretty tender skin.

Faulty thermostat it's the thin copper shaft in the oven that has a skinny tube running from it if you remove the oven knob you will find it goes back to the switch. Needs replacing.

My old Jenn-Air W230 wall oven only gets to "warm" in the bake position - even at a temperature setting at 500 degrees. However the broil function works well. Could the problem be a bad thermostat o


the oven sensor could be bad,its a small rod inside the oven cavity near the top,or you could have a bake element with a "hot-spot" in it that can no longer pass enough current to properly heat the oven to the correct temperature setting(most elements with a hot spot will show a discolored area on the element where its been overly hot)this is the "hot-spot" it will soon break apart there

JGBP33 Get an F2 Error, oven gets warm but not hot enough to cook, will cook on broiler mode? Any help would appreciated.


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 Control 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.

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

Range modle is KGSS907SSS01.when i cooking or use the oven, some noice come out ,until over is off or the temperature is down.


is it possible the coolant fan is running and has started making some noise ...the fan will come on at temperature request it has a thermostat to bring it on when the oven gets hot enough and will cool down...sometimes the fan will run even when you turn the oven off if it is hot enough until the temperature gets down low enough to shut it off...maybe this is what is going on and the fan has started making noise now and will need to be replaced.... good luck to you

The oven is not getting to temperature


Check the breakers/fuses that supply the power to the oven. It sounds like it is not getting enough power.
Good luck!

My oven wont get to temperature why?


If oven is getting hot , but not hot enough, then the thermostat is probably faulty.if no heat at all, then you need to replace the oven element.

Amana arg7800ww oven will not come up to temperature.


Your gas valve has a thermocouple circuit that will not let gas flow until the ignitor is hot enough. A failed ignitor can still glow but not be hot enough to open the gas valve. Replace your ignitor.
