What is the brand and model of your oven

    Your problem is a very frequent one and easy to understand. Your oven has an electronic control so the temperature is control from the electronic control board and the temperature sensor which are two different parts.

    However since the electronic control is rather expensive is wise to replace first the temperature sensor parts number 9, Oven temperature sensor- Size: 6 inches long. Includes ceramic wire nuts.
    Part Number:
    AP3130719 made by WHIRLPOOL


    Which much more, less expensive and if your problem insists then to go and replace the part number 11, Microcomputer Part Number: AP3095479 made by WHIRLPOOL. Despite that in this case the problem is only one relay on the board you need to replace the whole board.

    The above parts and all other parts of your oven can be found in the following link.

Of the service manual shows your diagram. The oven sensor should read 1100 ohms @room temp (75f) All these new fangled electronically controlled ovens use a sensor.

If that sensor is not correct, open, or shorted to frame then the control will not function properly.

After finding a cheap one on Craig's and reading the problems I decided to roll the dice and buy this range. It has the exact problem described above. The owner had replaced the control module and temp probe with no luck. I hooked up the range and sure enough it would come up to temperature (let's say 350) then dropped back to below 200 and never recovered. Lots of relay clicking but no heat. I unplugged it, took off the back and sure enough, one of the connections to the bottom burner was burnt and the wire was laying in the bottom of the range. I cut the bad part off of the wire, added a new high temp stainless terminal reconnected and viola', it works fine now. Wonderful range for practically nothing. It took about 20 minutes to repair and cost $2.00 for the new terminal. Piece of cake. Take a look inside before you call someone. These terminals Samsung used are cheap, not crimped properly etc.... hope this helps! I'll change them all out tomorrow.

I turn the oven to 350 degrees and it never gets hot.


First, I guess we need to define hot. If you mean hot enough to bake whatever it is you wanted to bake, then it's possible, if this is a unit that has a "timed bake" feature, that someone neglected to put the control back in manual mode, after having used the "timed bake". If this happened, then the oven will only heat to 160 - 180 degrees, and will maintain that temp. It's called a keep warm setting, which is designed to keep the food that was recently baked, warm, until someone can come get it out and served. Check this feature if you have it and see if it's in manual mode, if not change it and the oven should heat up to 350 and beyond.
If there is NO "timed bake" feature, and there's some heat, just not enough to get to a bake mode, then it's possible that the oven's ceramic glo igniter is cracked and not heating to the point that it allows the oven's safety gas valve to open for gas flow to the burner. If there's no heat at all, the problem could still be the igniter, but it could also be electronic control box feeding the igniter. These things must be checked by a tech with an ohmmeter, and possibly replaced.

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

This indicates an open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you wan to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

GE Oven is not heating to full temperature.. Also heating up real slow


Hi,


Thank you for contacting Fixya.com.


First you need to check whether you are getting full 220 volts + to the oven. Some oven controls have adjustable knobs where can be fine tuned. The temperature can be calibrated by 25 degrees but not any 200 degrees. I think these can get you may be up to 75 degrees max. It seems like your sensing bulb is mounted right your oven control which has the sensing bulb attached could very well be shot. Also check if the elements work? Does the broil get red when set on broil; does the bake get red when set on bake? If yes the wiring should be ok and possibly/probably is a bad oven temp control. If the elements do not get red, that would have to be investigated (burnt wire, bad selector switch, bad oven control, burnt wire. Turn on the oven with the meter connected. It should show full voltage when you first turn it on and the thermostat will turn it on and off.

If the sensor inside the ovens baking compartment is not damaged, touching any metal part, bent, pitted, no foil is used on the racks or lower plate, in an attempt to keep ovens internal clean, etc, then temp sensor is likely defective. Which means the ECR (control unit) will need to be replaced.


Please get back to us if you have any further query.

Have a nice day.

I have a frigidaire stove that heats to 50 degrees hotter than the know setting. Can it be adjusted to read correctly?


There is a calibration method to adjust the oven thermostat plus/minus 35 degrees if it is a digital display. The method varies depending on the model range. This calibration method is used to adjust the thermostat if it is not keeping proper tempature. For example if you are setting the oven to 350 and the actual temp it is keeping is 325 then you could use the calibration method to adjust it plus 25 degrees to correct the temp. Just so you know electric ovens will keep a pretty even temp but gas ovens will vary by 40 or more degrees to keep an "average" temp. For example the burner will come on when the oven is 330 degrees and turn off at 370. 330+370 then divide by 2=350. So a oven thermometer may not show you the temp you set it at in a gas oven but does not mean the oven temp is off.

The Taylor oven thermometer you bought is decent at best. It is most likely the sensor inside the oven. Has your clock displayed any fault codes? F, followed by a number? Changing the sensor will probably correct the problem.

Wont heat past 200 degres


When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.

You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil element, which causes poor baking results.

If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system to locate the defective wire or component.
