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.

OVEN NOT REACHING SET PREHEAT


you can try replacing your oven temp. probe. If it still does it, replace your electronic oven control. probe is cheaper than the E.O.C.

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.

When set to bake eg: 350 degrees the audio alarm will indicate it's reached temp but the oven is 50- 75 degrees lower. Must wait another 15 min for it to reach the proper temp. Have tried to adjust the off...


If you are monitoring the oven temperature with an analog style thermometer you may actually be ok, but seeing the thermometers slow reaction time.
Some newer ovens actually do pre-heat beep prior to reaching temp in an effort to conserve eelectricity.
A good home test is to try your oven at several different temps to see if there is any variation in internal temperature. Try it one day on 300, the next at 375 and another day at 450. Give your analog style thermometer time to catch up (usually just about 15 min) and leave it on for a half an hour to see if the temp maintains.
Also Beware of aluminum foil AND THE NEW OVEN LINER MATS as they can alter oven performance bay absorbing and blocking the ovens natural heat radiation and convection air flow currents that happen in all ovens, not just convection models.
Another interesting fact is that older ovens used a thermostat in them that operated much like your thermometer and was very slow to react making the oven typically about 100 degrees hotter than where the customer set it. This was just a fact of life before the advent of electronic temperature management and became noticeable when people began trying to bake older "hand me down" recipes in the newer ovens with less than stellar results.
You can mimic the older oven performance by preheating the oven about a hundred degrees higher than called for and after it reaches temp, re-set it to the correct temperature and put the items in right away.
If you find your temperatures fluctuating ask your servicer to replace first the temp sensor and as a last resort the control board as this part is usually pretty expensive.
Good Luck with this!

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...

Frigidaire oven is slow to heat then exceeds set temp set


Normally you should have an appliance spare parts supplier in your area. They generally stock all range of spares for all appliances. You need to pull plug out of the wall and remove the panel covering the wiring to gain access to the oven thermostat. Look carefully on the body of the thermostat and record any numbers you see on a sticker that's present. Then remove knob off in front of thermostat and see if there is a nut attached to the centre which holds the thermostat in position or if there are 2 screws holding the thermostat in place. Use this information to order the thermostat also quoting the oven model number.

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.
