General Electric oven how to reset thermostat


First of all, most oven thermometers move very slowly compared to the electronic sensors and controls on the oven. To make sure you are getting an accurate reading, the thermometer should be in the center of the oven, the oven should be preheated, then wait another 20 minutes after the preheat beep. If the temperature is less than 35 degrees higher or lower at this point, it can be adjusted via the controls. Usually on GE ovens you press and hold bake and broil at the same time until SF comes up in the display. Then press bake, then use the arrow keys to raise or lower the temperature setting. If the temperature is more than 35 degrees off, you may have a bad sensor, bad control board, or other problem.

I just replaced and old worn out built in Turbo with a new model. Both are propane versions. After installing the new model works fine but does not generate enough heat. With all four burners on high...


If you are using a 20Lb LP Gas Tank, rather than hard piped to the grill or you're using Natural Ga, here in may lie the problem. If it is Natural Gas, was the grill converted or ordered for Natural Gas? If not, that's why it' not heating well.

If you're using a 20Lb grill tank, do the following:

1. Turn the Propane Tank Valve OFF and disconnect the hose from the tank.

2.Wait 5 minutes and reconnect the hose to the tank. Open the tank valve VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow motion, slow).

3. Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn the control knob to HIGH. Does the flame height look correct for being on HIGH? If so, light the remaining burners the same way, Do all the flame hieghts look correct? If co, close the lid and allow the grill to preheat for at least 20 minutes. Did the grill thermometer go higher that 200 degrees F. If so, you solved the problem. Always remember to turn the tank valve ON very, very slowly.

If that did not solve the problem, the thermometer may be incorrect/faulty. I had this happen myself, with a new grill. To test it, invest $5.00 in an Oven Thermometer, like you use in a regular oven, It sits on the oven shelf. But, in this case it will sit on the center of the grill's cooking grates.

Light the grill and preheat it for 20 minutes. Loo k at the grill thermometer and then lift the hood and look at the oven thermometer. The oven thermometer may be as much as 200 degrees higher. That's because it's actually reading the temperature at cooking level, not up in the air, where the grill thermometer is.

I never replaced my grill thermometer. I continue to use the inexpensive oven thermometer, because it's giving me the actual temperature, at the level I'm grilling at. And I, do a lot of grilling.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Pleas let me know and Happy Grilling.

Grill will only heat to 350 degrees


I suspect the problem, is a result of either dirty and/or clogged burners and venturi valves (part of the burner). Or the grills gas regulator is partially locked close.

Since the regulator problem does not involve any real dismantling of the grill, I'll start with that solution first. The most important thing is - Do you have enough gas in the tank, for the grill to perform as it should? If it was recently filled, do the following.

1. Turn the gas valve on the tank OFF.
2. Disconnect the hose from the tank and wait 5 minutes.
3, Reconnect the hose to the tank and turn the tank valve ON, VERY, VERY SLOWLY (Slow
Motion, slow)
4. Once he tank valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn the burner
knob to HIGH. Dose the flame height look correct? If so, light the remaining burners the same
way, until are are lit and burning. Do all the flame heights look correct when set on HIGH? If so,
you solved the problem. Close the grill's hood and allow it to heat in excess of 350 degrees. It's a
good idea to confirm that the thermometer on the grill is accurate. Place an inexpensive Oven
Thermometer (about $6.00) that will set on the grill grate(s), while you preheat the grill. When the
grill's thermometer reaches 350, raise the hood and compare it with the reading of the oven
thermometer. if they read approximately the same, then your grill thermometer is accurate. If the
oven thermometer reads higher, the grill thermometer needs to be replaced. Frankly, mind failed
to read accurately. Rather than replace it, I always use the oven thermometer, because it's not
reading the air temperature at the hood level, it's reading the temperature at the cooking level.
Which is really what I want to know.

If the above did not solve the problem, you will need to replace the grill's Hose/Regulator Assembly. You can purchase one from any home center or hardware store that sells gas grills and accessories. They run about $30.00. Take you old one with you for comparison purposes.

Hope this helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem. Please let me know and Happy Grilling!!

How can I get into the cut-on settings of refrigerator


Hello,


Purchase an appliance thermometer that is specifically made for refrigerators and freezers. These special thermometers were made to withstand cold temperatures and provide an accurate reading when exposed to such temperatures.

2Place the appliance thermometer in a glass of water.

3Set the glass of water with the thermometer in the refrigerator on the middle shelf.

4Check the temperature on the appliance thermometer after 24 hours.
The temperature should register between 37 and 40 degrees Fahrenheit (2 and 4 degrees Celsius) in order to store food safely.
Only barely above freezing -- say 34 degrees Fahrenheit (1 degree Celsius) is even better for food storage at the cost of slightly higher electricity consumption. But check that food is not slowly freezing in any part of the refrigerator, which could make it less palatable.

5Look for the temperature control dial inside the refrigerator if you have to adjust the temperature, and make it warmer or cooler.
If you can't easily see the control dial, check the owner's manual for a diagram that shows the location.
When looking at the refrigerator temperature dial, you may see numbers rather than degrees. The majority of refrigerators use a set of numbers, with the lower numbers representing cooler temperatures and the higher numbers representing warmer temperatures.

6Move the temperature dial in the necessary direction to adjust the temperature up or down. Be sure to move the dial only one number in either direction because it probably will not take much to change the temperature in the refrigerator.

7Adjust the temperature balance control if your refrigerator has such a dial or sliding switch. This allows you to direct more or less cold air to the refrigerator section from the freezer section.

8Wait at least 24 hours, and then check the refrigerator temperature again.


9Observe the amount of frost in the freezer section of the refrigerator if you are unable to properly set the temperature.

10Defrost the freezer if the amount of frost is more than .25 inches (.64 cm) thick.

11Repeat the steps as necessary until the temperature is within the safe range.

12Use a permanent marker to draw a line on the dial after you locate the best setting on the refrigerator temperature dial. This will give you a reference point in case your dial moves and needs to be adjusted in the future.


Hope this help in solving the problem....

Low Heat ? i have a brand new napoleon grills. paid a lot to get quality. I dont find it very performant. It seems there is heating problem. I read a lot about regulator reset. I tried it but im not...


Not sure what you're grilling, that would require 500 degrees or higher. Unless, you're really trying to char-broil and I do mean char. In any event, it may simply be the thermometer on the hood of your grill, reading incorrectly. Keep in mind, the thermometer is not reading the temp at the cooking grate surface, it's reading the air temperature when the hood is closed.

I do a lot of grilling, I do grill shows for local food stores and I love to grill. But, I have learned to never rely on what the grill thermometer says. I use an oven thermometer that sits off to the side, on top of my grill grates. When I compare the temp on the grill thermometer to the oven thermometer on the cooking grates, there will be a difference of 50 degrees. Now, certainly the temp will drop some, when the hood is opened after preheating. That's normal. But the heat loss, at cooking grate level, is not more than 10 degrees, depending on the outside ambient air temperature. Of course if it's the dead of Winter, the temperature will drop significantly. In that case, grill with the hood closed 90% of the time.

With all of the above said, what do the flames and flame heights look like on each burner? Do they respond as they should when you raise and lower the flames? If not, then you have a gas pressure problem. That can be resolved by turning OFF the tank valve, disconnect the hose from the tank and waiting 5 minutes. Then reconnect the hose to the tank and open the tank valve VERY, VERY, SLOWLY (slow motion, slow). Once the valve is fully open, light the burner farthest from the tank first and turn it to high. Do the flames look higher than they did previously? If so, light the remaining burners following the same procedure as the first burner. Do all the flame heights look correct. If so you solved the problem of low flame height.

I hope all of this has helped you troubleshoot and solve the problem, if there is one. Please let me know. Thanks and Happy Grilling!!

How to set fridge temp


    1. The first thing you must know is that your refrigerator should be set at 37-38 degrees. Anything at 40 or higher and you are risking food born illness (food poisoning) or spoiling your food. Place your magnetic thermometer in the refrigerator.

    2. Set your dial on your refrigerator to the second lowest setting. (If your refrigerator is already equipped with a digital thermostat, simply set it for 37 or 38 degrees and do not move on to the next step)

    3. After 2 hours, check your thermometer reading. If your reading is 38 degrees, there is no need to go higher and you are ready to put your groceries in. Be sure not to open and close your refrigerator during these two hours or your temperature reading will be incorrect.

    4. If your reading is higher than 38 degrees, move your dial up to the next coldest setting and repeat the steps every two hours until you reach the correct temperature for your refrigerator.

    5. Once you have reached the correct refrigeration temperature for your refrigerator, place the magnetic thermometer in the refrigerator permanently and watch for changes.

    Typically, your refrigerator temperature will need to be adjusted with the seasons, a higher setting in the summer and a lower setting in the winter.

The following steps below is how to set the temperature of your refrigerator.

The first thing you must know is that your refrigerator should be set at 37-38 degrees. Anything at 40 or higher and you are risking food born illness (food poisoning) or spoiling your food.

Step 2
Place your magnetic thermometer in the refrigerator.

Step 3
Set your dial on your refrigerator to the second lowest setting. (If your refrigerator is already equipped with a digital thermostat, simply set it for 37 or 38 degrees and do not move on to the next step)

Step 4
After 2 hours, check your thermometer reading. If your reading is 38 degrees, there is no need to go higher and you are ready to put your groceries in. Be sure not to open and close your refrigerator during these two hours or your temperature reading will be incorrect.

If your reading is higher than 38 degrees, move your dial up to the next coldest setting and repeat the steps every two hours until you reach the correct temperature for your refrigerator.

My Whirlpool oven no longer heats to the set temperature.


Temp probe/thermometer inside oven dirty, or off attachment, or defective. On some models, a small screw head adjustment is provided to calibrate thermometer under dial knob. Else, I would just set dial 50 degrees higher rather than expense of new thermometer or dial.
