Use an oven thermometer Try to figure out if by setting it to 390 it will maintain 350 accurately. (A 25 degree change while it cycles is normal. It will probably overshoot before going off and undershoot a little before cycling on.) If so the thermostat has just drifted. Pull off the control know and look usually there is an adjustment on the shaft to change the temp showing on the knob. set it up 50 degrees. If the knob can't be changed just know that you have to adjust yourself. If it won't maintain a steady temp the thermostat is bad and will need to be replaced. The thermostat will be over $100 it may not be worth it. If this is a computer controled unit (pushbutton temp selection) the sensor needs to be replaced. This is a lot cheaper than a thermostat.

I get this service call a lot so lets verify temp before we discuss possible causes set the rack in the middle of the oven hang an oven thermometer in the center of rack set a 350 let run 1 hour check the temp after an hour this gives the oven enough time to cycle and stabilize this will give you the true average of oven, temp placement of thermometer is important plus or minus 15F on either side of 350 is not that much of a big deal the max range for a temperature offset is usually 30F, there should be a tech sheet in a plastic pouch on the back of the unit now if you do find it to be running 50F too hot well there are test to determine if the temperature sensor is operating correctly it should read appx. 1654 ohms at 350 this tells the control board to open the heat relay stopping power to the gas valve lot of work you have to have the oven out back panel off to access the wiring going to control unplug machine at 350 disconnect wiring from board to ohm out sensor, sensors go bad and so do boards, sensor is cheaper try changing it first.

The temperature in my oven is not accurate.... If I set it for 350, it pre-heats and then buzzes [to let me know it's reached temp]....but the temperature is NOT 350; rather, it is at 275 [I have a...


Your oven's manual should tell you how to adjust this. The manual should also have a trubleshooting chart. Also remember, your temperature sensor may be going bad and will need to be replaced. For now, you can set the temperature 75 degrees higher to get the correct temperature you need.

Doesn't get to correct temp set.


Hi,
If your electric2_bing.gif oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...

Temp of oven did not go over 350 when it was set at 380,,,was cooking fried chicken spectra xl44


Probably the RTD is going bad. That is a resistive temperature device. It changes resistance over temp and feeds a voltage back to the oven controller telling it that the oven set temp has been reached. If you are not reaching your temperature then I would suspect the RTD.

Oven is not reaching proper temperatures


You most likely have either a faulty thermistor or heating element that will need to be replaced.

My oven heats up, but then does not maintain the temp.


If it has a pilot then I would say the thermal couple is bad. If it has a glow type ignitor then the ignitor is bad.

My Kitchen Aid Supuerba top covection oven will heat to set temp 350-400 then drop over 100 degree's but still read on digital display 350 or 400


how do you know it is dropping 100 degrees ?
If the set temperature is 350-400 the heaters will work untill the thermostat will read that the temperature is reached - after that the heaters will shut down and the temperature will drop...and after few minutes when the temperature goes below thw set point (in this case 350-400) the heaters will turn on again - this will happen for the duration of the timing you have selected (example 45 minutes)
