Question about Ovens

2 Answers

I have moved into a home that has a Modena oven. When using oven the temperature appears to be hotter than the temp gauge, even when turned to low/moderate, for e.g. a quiche will cook quickly on outside, top & bottom with middle not cooked. Previous owner did not leave a manual.

    Thank you.
    Modena appears to be an uncommon type of oven, do you know of a company who deals with this brand - I would like a manual if possible.

  • robyn_young May 26, 2011

    Are you aware of a manual that might be available - somewhere?

  • robyn_young Jun 10, 2011

    I cannot find any 'distributors' or 'outlets' - other than writing to the company in Italy . . . ?

    Do you know where I might obtain a manual - " " " . . . ?

    Thanks.

I think it's the thermostat.

The thermostat turns the oven on until it reaches a desired temperature, then once the temperature is reached it turns the oven element off thus allowing the dish to slowly heat up. Which in turn gives you a well cooked, middle included, dish.

I would say the thermostat needs to be replaced, it should not cost a whole lot. You may need to get it installed though.

Take care and Happy Cooking!

    My advice would be to contact the Company in Italy and let them know of your problem, they will be able to tell you who exactly repairs/services their units. Contact them via E-mail if possible. They will also be able to point you in the right direction with regards to the manual. They will either E-mail it to you or they will post it by mail.
    Take care!

There is a problem with the thermostat of your oven if it can not control the temperature. The thermostat regulates the oven cavity temperature by controlling burner flame (for gas ovens),/ electricity antering the heater (for electric ovens).

    Try www.modenaelettrodomestici.com

Temperature when using frigidare oven, keeps getting hotter and does not cool down


Good Afternoon Andrea,

I see that you're having issues with your Frigidaire oven, and the heating element being red hot the entire time you were cooking no matter how much you turned the temperature down.

I suggest giving your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for at least 2-3 minutes. When power is restored to your oven, you will need to set the clock by entering in the time and pressing start. Preheat the oven, to whatever desired temperature, and if it is still running hotter than it should be, I suggest you contact your local authorized technician. I hope this is helpful.

-Best Regards-

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!

My oven temperature is 100 degrees hotter than it should be


It will be the sensor inside the oven compartment that is causing the problem.
A new sensor should cure the prob, certainley cheaoer than buying a new oven.
Hope my advice helps you.

My oven will not turn off even after I turn it off the temperature gets hotter and hotter. I have to unplug the oven


you have a bad main control board
a relay is stuck on the main "clock Board"
replace board
also may want to check or change temp probe in the upper corner of the oven cavity
most probably bad board

My oven burns everything.


Use a 'oven thermometer' in the oven and determine the 'actual temperature' in the oven. Your knob setting is off (not calibrated) and the oven is hotter than the control knob setting.

Incorrect temperature


under the oven knob is the screw that adjusts the temp. remove the knob and with a small blade screwdriver adjust the temp according to your wife's oven thermometer CW+hotter CCW=cooler
then on the back of the knob is a screw to adjust the position of the knob with respect to the marker
