Question about Ovens

1 Answer

Gas oven won't maintain temp. It turns off after reaching temperature set.

I light the oven, set the temperature to 350, wait 7-10 seconds then it comes on. Some time later the oven turns off, and never comes back on. Don't even know if it reaches the temperature set.

    When entering the temperature setting on the lower oven, it takes the setting and shuts off after a few seconds and the oven never turns on.

    I have two electric oven that acts the same way. I set the temp at 325 F and only gets 200 F. I changed the temperature sensor and it acts the same way. I switched ovens and the second does exactly the same thing. I've check the breaks and they are on. I check the voltage at the wall plug and they show 120 v each. Even the boil setting does not bring the temperature very high. It looks like it has only half power. All the elements/clock works fine.

Hi ya mate sorry to hear your having problems with you oven,

The problem wiht your oven seems to ba a faliure of the fsd/ffd, it seems to me that this device is not completey gone but is faulty.

This device is used as a safety feature on gas ovens and is there to turn the gas off to the oven when the flame has failed.

The way it works is that the intial small flame heats up the the phile at the end of the cappliary tube which is connected to a valave which realses the gas to the oven..


what you need is to have it change


hope this helps

washdoctor

cheers

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-

My oven won't reach the appropriate temperature


It is a problem with neither of the two it is the sensor reads the oven temp and shuts off the heating element when it is reached, it is called the thermal probe or thermostat.

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.

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!

Oven does not reach full temperature


Are you checking with a store bought thermometer or your recipe. If it is your recipe then ur thermostat might need a calibration or need to be changed completely if it is really off by more than 100 degrees. If it is 99 or less a simple calibration may just do it. If you have a steady hand. With your thermometer inside the oven and the door closed set at 350. Then take the oven knob off and take a small flat screw driver (really small). And insert it in the valve part where the knob was. With a flash light u can see the small screw. Turn it a hair at a time (1-2mm). Wait 20 minutes and see if the temp does rise. If not turn another hair. Repeat until 350 is reached. You must wait the 20-30 minutes for it to reach the temp. If all else fails changing the thermostat would be next. I do not recommend u do this alone. approx cost is: $400 - 500 front access, 500 - 600 rear access Good luck.

Old Magic Chef Gas Oven won't light


sounding like thermostat isn't working. If you could ohm out the t-stat should be closed when you call for heat. If that passes the test then only thing it could be is the gas valve.
