My oven, electric, overshoots the set temp then fades down

It then fades down to 20 or more degrees before heating up and never reaches set temp again?!!! It's about 4 years old and useda few times a week for a household of 2.

Riello 40 gasG900 burner that will ignite but when oven reaches temperature it turns off completely. After temp drops by 4 degrees it turns back on and reheats back to temp then turns off.Why is this?


that would be normal. if it didnt shut off, it would go above the set temperature. the heat is either off or on. it cant me in the middle. it turns 'off' so that the temperature doesnt go too far above 250. when it senses the temperature falling too low below 250, it heats it up again.

Adjust thermostat


A thermostat only cuts the heating off when the temperature it is set to is reached while the heating is on. If the heating is set to off then the thermostat will do nothing.
Generally you want to think about when you want your heating to come one and off by using the timer and then the thermostat is just used to ensure that you don't waste energy by exceeding the maximum comfortable temperature.

Hope this helps a little.

Whirlpool accubake RBS275PDB6 will not heat up to preset temp


I am assuming the lower element is not working well. Go ahead and replace it. But first , go turn your breaker off to the oven and then back on. Often times it can be tripped but not showing due to the other poles not being tripped. The lower element is the cheaper one also.

Oven temp heats higher than set


The control board is bad. One of the relays has fused and you will need to replace the control board.

Takes for ever to reach temp


you may want to check to make sure both elements are working, if only one is working it will take longer to reach temp and to cook

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!

Maytag gas oven cycles every 20 seconds


yes it is normal . but i know your not the first to think its not , todays ovens are so tight , it only takes 10 seconds of heat to keep them at proper temp . it used to be that ovens where kept at a 3 degree sweep that is set at 350 turn on and up to 353 then off ,cool down to 350 and back on . this was a longer time off and a longer time on topday we keep to 1 degree ! 350 on to 351 off to 350 on and so on ....... so short berst of heat make for a more even oven ........ but i know i hate it too ! good luck

Oven temperature


you guys should check your tempurature sensor. Our oven has been acting weird like saying it has heated up to 400 degrees in like 1 minute haha. Well after a few months of this happening on occasion we get an F2 error flashing..

did some research on it and apparently for GE ovens this is a temp sensor gone bad. Im looking to buy one now which is how i found this post, i just thought id tell you all what i found out and maybe you should look into that as well.
