Hello Cil Ro,

I understand that you are having a problem with you oven, you need to locate a temperature knob. However, the model number does not cross reference at this time can you look again and give me a manufacturer and model. The plate should be located in side the oven door on the face or on the inside wall close to the front. Look closely as some time a 1 is mistaken for an I. Post back to this thread and I will locate the model and location of where you can purchase the knob.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

Ge oven will not preheat but broiler and stove top still works


Hello.

When an oven won't bake, it's because the bakeelement is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at thebottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This elementhas an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it maylast for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve the problem.Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical system tolocate the defective wire or component. When the temperature is consistent buttoo high or too low, it could be one of several different things.
First checkto see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It couldbe lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This wouldcause the oven to not heat correctly. If the thermostat bulb is notdislodged, it's likely that the thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibratedor defective. Electronic ovens with a digitaldisplay use a sensor to monitor oven temperature.
To solve temperature problemsfor these models, you may need to replace the sensor. On some digital-displaymodels, you can calibrate the temperature using the key pad. See youroperator's manual for details. Ovens without a digital displayoften use a mechanical system for controlling temperature. On many of theseunits, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to moreaccurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat.
If, when you remove the knob,there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you canloosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knobisn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 35 to 45degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.

Thanks.

Oven works but wont get up to temp


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.

I don't have the model number for this range but it's a very old magic chef gas oven. What I need is the oven temperature knob. The knob used to have all of the temperature numbers printed on it however...


If you go any hardware store (Lowe's, Home Depot) they have universal knob replacement kits. Take your old knob with you and ask for help from someone who looks like they know something (the old guy). Its so much cheaper this way, exact replacement knobs can run $20 or more each. Good luck!!

Gas self cleaning 30 range. In bake mode does not heat as hot as before, takes longer to bake items.


  • When the item takes far too long to finish, you probably have a weak bake igniter. Often, you need to replace the igniter, but you may want to troubleshoot the oven's electrical system further to more precisely locate the defect.

  • When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, the oven thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. If your oven uses an electronic temperature-regulating device, you may have an electric sensor in the oven instead of a mechanical thermostat. If the oven temperature is off by 30 to 40 degrees in this type of unit, you must replace the sensor.

    On many units with a mechanical thermostat, you can remove the thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to solve the problem.
