Question about Hotpoint RGB745 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Soultion not viable

Any other suggestions the only way we can see to adjust oven thermostat is by using the +- 25 degrees on display pad which we tried prior to post. This model does not have a knob for the oven - so the oven can not be adjusted the same way the stoptop burners can be adjusted.

As previously stated the quality of flame appears satistfactory for both the broiler & the oven- so I don' t thing the air shutter is the issue

    Hotpoint RGB747GER oven does not heat properly.

    The oven temperature when read by meat thermometer place in center of oven is 1/2 of control setting ( i.e oven temperature set for 300 degrees displays 300 degrees on contol pad - says ready, but manual thermometer placed in oven reads 150 degrees or less ).
    Never gets hot enough to cook rolls, cookies, cakes,meats properly
    Did adjust thermostat to max setting of +25 degrees on display - change not enough to help.
    Did have a F ? error about a year about, but unplugging/ pluggin back in cleared.

    Seems to ignite off/ on and quality of flame looks ok.



    Another example




    set control panel to "baked 400 degrees" in about 4 minutes panel sensed oven had reached desired temp listened for flame/ burner to shut off then did manual internal temp measurement ---but when maual oven thermometer hung off rack reads less than 150 degrees. Unit will occassionally appear to kick in gets hot - then burns everything -- broiler not working good not either

    Set oven at 400, inside only gets to 350. Set oven to 450 inside only gets to 325. Set oven to 525, inside goes to 525.

Any other posts have been blocked, so I don't know what you have been told or tried. Has the oven temp been OK until just recently? The range has not been moved or converted Nat gas to LP etc. recently? If yes to Q1 and no to Q2, I'd replace the oven sensor ( WB21X5301) and then reset control to +- 00. Sensor is the pencil shaped thing sticking out the back of the oven. Note: Your temp test method is not accurate enough to calibrate oven exactly. I take average temp after a minimum 3 on / off cycles using a digital calibrating oven thermometer to get them within 10 degrees of set temp.

How to adjust oven controll to the right temp.


You may find that your new oven cooks differently than the one it replaced. Use your new oven for a few weeks to
become more familiar with it. If you still think your new oven is too hot or too cold, you can adjust the thermostat yourself.
Do not use thermometers, such as those found in grocery stores, to check the temperature setting of your oven.
These thermometers may vary 20-40 degrees.
NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling or the self-cleaning temperatures. The adjustment will be retained
in memory after a power failure.
Adjust the oven thermostat-Do it yourself!
To Adjust the Thermostat
Touch the BAKEand BROIL HI/LOpads
at the same time for 2 seconds until
the display shows SF.
Touch the BAKEpad. A two digit
number shows in the display.
The oven temperature can be adjusted
up to (+) 35°F hotter or (-) 35°F
cooler. Touch the + pad to increase the
temperature in 1 degree increments.
Touch the - pad to decrease the
temperature in 1 degree increments.
When you have made the adjustment,
touch the START/ON pad to go back to
the time of day display. Use your oven
as you would normally.
NOTE: This adjustment will not affect the broiling
or self-cleaning temperatures. It will be retained
in memory after a power failure

My GE XL44 Self-Cleaning Gas oven heats up but is about 125-130 degrees cooler than what it is set for.


To Adjust the Thermostat


  1. Touch the BROIL HI/LO and BAKE pads at the same time for 3 seconds until the display shows SF.
  2. Touch the BAKE pad. A two digit number shows in the display.
  3. Touch BAKE again to alternate between increasing and decreasing the oven temperature.
  4. The oven temperature can be adjusted up to (+) 35°F (19°C) hotter or (-) 35°F (19°C) cooler. Touch the number pads the same way you read them. For example, to change the oven temperature 15°F (8°C), touch 1 and 5.
  5. When you have made the adjustment, touch the START pad to go back to the time of day display. Use your oven as you would normally.

I own a spectra range Model # JBP30B0B4WH The problem is that the oven temp, is off about 15 degrees how can I adjust it? Roy


This is from page 13 of your manual:

To Adjust the Thermostat
Put the Oven Temperature knob in
the OFF position.
Press and hold the HOUR +/– pads for
5 seconds until the display changes.
Before display changes back, press
the HOUR +/– pads to increase or
decrease the temperature in 5
degree increments.
The oven temperature can be adjusted as
much as 35°F. or down as much as 35°F.
If the oven adjustment is set cooler
than the factory setting a minus sign (–)
and the adjusted temperature will appear
in the display.
Wait several seconds for the control
to automatically set and return to its
previous setting.

I have a frigidaire stove that heats to 50 degrees hotter than the know setting. Can it be adjusted to read correctly?


There is a calibration method to adjust the oven thermostat plus/minus 35 degrees if it is a digital display. The method varies depending on the model range. This calibration method is used to adjust the thermostat if it is not keeping proper tempature. For example if you are setting the oven to 350 and the actual temp it is keeping is 325 then you could use the calibration method to adjust it plus 25 degrees to correct the temp. Just so you know electric ovens will keep a pretty even temp but gas ovens will vary by 40 or more degrees to keep an "average" temp. For example the burner will come on when the oven is 330 degrees and turn off at 370. 330+370 then divide by 2=350. So a oven thermometer may not show you the temp you set it at in a gas oven but does not mean the oven temp is off.

Claibrating the temperature of a GE gas oven


First of all, do not use the oven thermometers from a grocery store. they can be off by 20 degrees or more. These directions may help you for electronically controlled ovens. The older manually controlled ovens have a small screw head in the center of the oven temperature knob that can be adjusted in usually 10 degree increments.


To Adjust the Thermostat
Touch the Bake and Broil Hi/Lo pads
at the same time for 3 seconds until the
display shows SF.
Touch the Bake pad. A two digit number
shows in the display.
Touch Bake once to decrease (-)
the oven temperature, or twice to
increase (+).
The oven temperature can be adjusted
up as much as 35°F. or down as much
as 35°F. Touch the number pads the
same way you read them. For example,
to change the oven temperature 15°F,
touch 1 and 5.
When you have made the adjustment,
touch the Start pad to go back to the
time of day display. Use your oven as
you would normally.
NOTE: The thermostat adjustment for Baking
will also affect Convection Baking or Convection Roasting.

Oven Temperture adjustment


On my Epicure, you are supposed to press the bake selector pad then press the + button to set the temperature to 500 degrees or higher.  Then hold the bake button for 5 seconds.  The temp display is replaced by 00.  Release the bake pad and use the - or+ buttons to adjust the temperature in 5 degree increments.  When finished push cancel (or just do nothing).  Good luck.  I tried this and my oven kind of went haywire.  It decreased the temp by much more than the 10 degrees I had set it too.  May be something else wrong with my oven though?
