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.

Gas oven doesn't get hot enough


Good Morning Friend,

I understand that your Frigidaire oven will not heat to temperature if you set it to 350 degrees. I see that you have to set it to 450 degrees for it to heat up, and then turn it back down to the desired temperature. Please try resetting your appliance, by either unplugging it or shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Restore power, set the clock and try setting the temperature to 350 degrees. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your appliances status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

Whirlpool gas oven is taking three times as long to cook something,what is wrong?


have you checked with an oven type thermometer for 350 degrees against the setting of 350 degrees,if its off very far then its the oven temp sensor in the upper left middle or right rear wall of the oven thats bad it looks like a small pencil type rod 2" to*' long it merely unplugs off the oven s control panel in the rear,you can test its resistance also to get an idea if it is your culprit,otherwise the oven element could have a hot spot in it and not letting all the current thru to properly heat the element,it will be dis-colored in that area

Is it dangerest when your oven beeps f2


Typically an oven beeps when the interior temperature macthes the temperature where you set the dial. This is an audible signal to that fact and particularly helpful when you need to pre-heat the oven. For example it you want to cook something at 350 degrees, you set the dial at 350. When your oven reaches that temperature it beeps to let you know. Some cooking directions tell you to preheat your oven. In that case, when you set the dial to 350 and wait for the beep...you know you are safe to start your cooking process because the oven is now pre-heated to the temperature you set. If your recipe requires a pre-heated oven, and you don't wait for the beep, your taking a guess at what temperature you're cooking your food. Additionally, if you want to know what the internal temperature of oven is and your oven is heated...you simply turn you dial setting and listen for the beep. Again, if you set your oven at 350 and you want to know how hot your oven is... slowly turn the dial setting. If the oven beeps at 275 then that's how hot your oven has gotten. To let it finish heating to 350 just reset the dial and wait for the beep.

Oven temp heats higher than set


The control board is bad. One of the relays has fused and you will need to replace the control board.

Oven heats to 200 and indicator dings


Try to set it at 500 degrees and see if it goes off at 350. If it does, then it probably needs calibrating. You can calibrate it by taking the knob off and finding a set screw in the stem where the knob sits. If this is not the problem, you may have to replace the thermostat. By the way, check to see if your temperature probe is not touching the wall of the oven. It will give it a false reading. Let me know if any of these things work and we will go from there.

Re: oven


the temp probe ( rod sticking out of rear wall inside oven ) should ohm out at 12-1300 ohms at room temp. the other possible cause is the heat relay on the control board is bad .this does not display a fault code.
