Question about Ovens
It seems that the readout on my Gaggenau EB984611 reads about 20-30 degrees higher than the oven actually is.
Is there a way for me to calibrate this myself?
I bought the oven in 1999.
SOURCE: Thermostat calibration?
The method suggested here does not "calibrate" the oven thermostat, it merely adjusts the reading on the control knob. What I was looking for is a way to actually have the oven setting equal the oven temperature. The best he offered was to "call an appliance repair person." There must be a better way.

Maytag single built in oven model cwe9000bcb beeps intermittenly. Reset stops for about 1 minute. Two control panel boards replaced since 2002 with same problem. Can it be fixed?

You may not need anything. Most people test their oven with a dial type oven thermometer. They are slow to react and often not very accurate. When I test an oven or install a new thermostat, I use a digital thermometer with a remote temperature probe, hanging from the center of the oven, which shows the temp in tenths of a degree. I let the oven cycle on and off at least three times, then take the high and lower readings on the next cycle and average that out to see what the actual oven temp is. Most of the time, if there is a dial type thermometer in the oven it is very slow to react. After 3 to 5 cycles, they often show close to what the actual oven temp is, but the only way to know for sure is to use the more accurate digital thermometer. Most ranges with digital displays can be adjusted + or - about 35 degrees. Check your users manual for this info, but don't mess with it until you have checked the oven with a digital thermometer! Please don't bother rating this solution, as anything but a Fix-Ya drops my score. Thanks.

Take your temp knob off and look in the center of the stem and you should find a small set screw. Using a small precision screwdriver, turn the screw until you see the light come on. (You won't have to turn it far.) Turn it a little at a time, maybe a 1/16 of a turn. Leave your thermometer in the oven with the door closed and at or near the temp probe that is in the oven. This way, you are getting a true reading.

There is no real way to calibrate the thermostat. Most ovens have the same problem. By lowering the setting slightly will help get a closer temperature. Sometimes similar thermostats are substituted and may not be exactly the same as the original that came with your oven. Hope my trying to answer your question was helpful, Thanks, Sea breeze
