    My Kenmore range 790.9622 won't preheat higher than 350. I replaced the sensor with no luck.

Its either the temp sensor found in the top corner of the oven cavity most common or it could be a faulty control

Check to make sure the bake element is coming on. If so try replacing the thermostat.

Oven tempperature is off anywere from 50 to 100 degrees. varies with setting


you either have a bad tempreture sensor or you have a bad ignitor if the oven is gas the tempture sensor if you do an ohms test at room tempreture should read 1100 and if you do an ampere test on the ignitor if your stove is gas this should read between 3 and 3.3 amps any less and you would have to change the ignitor if you have anyfurther questions please message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped in your appliance situation Thanks again

Gas oven not heating up.It will only warm to 150 degree's. It is a Tappan gas range/stove 110 series.


The problem is usually the ignitor not reaching the correct amp draw .When the ignitor does not reach the correct amp draw it may allow the gas valve to partially open or not open at all. The ignitor is inexpensive and easy to replace. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html this will walk you thru the correct procedure for performing this test. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same.You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. Not all models are available.

Tappan gas oven won't turn on


Hello,
I cannot assist you with your problem, but I do have the same oven and it seems the control panel doesn't work either. However, I am looking for the manual. Would you perhaps be able to help me with that? Sincerely, S. Rozier

Tappan Oven #MEF500PBWD heating unevenly


Perhaps the item you are using to check temperatures is not accurate. I my line of work, I use a digital thermometer which records immediate temperature. Perhaps understanding the process will help you see more accuracy in the way you read the temperature in your oven. Allow me to offer this explanation....First of all, place your thermometer near on the top rack as close to the oven temperature probe as possible. This probe is the focal point for your oven and detects the temperature and opens the electrical circuit to turn off the element when the desired set temperature is attained. Set your electric oven to 300 degrees and hopefully, you have a window in your oven to watch. The bake element will come on and the temperature will rise until it reaches 300 degrees. It is at this point when your oven bake indicator light should go out. When this happens....look inside. The element is still bright orange and emitting heat and will continue to raise the temperature in the oven to approximately 325 - 340 degrees. With this noted, you will see the temperature beginning to drop 315, 310, 300, 295, 290, 285 perhaps even 280 or some even lower to 275 and then the indicator lamp will go on indicating the circuit has closed thus turning on the element, Finally there is a variance and no range GAS or ELECTRIC will ever maintain a even 300 degree temperature. The calibration set point is based on the 300 degrees. If your oven light goes off within 20-25 degrees of three hundred degrees, your oven is already calibrated pretty close and I would not attempt to adjust it at all.

Wall Oven won't work


I tried randomly pushing 2 buttons at a time, and when I pushed "Timer Off/On" and "Cancel" together it unlocked and is now working fine. The following day it beeped a lot for an hour or so (must have been catching up on previous pushes) but now is back to normal.
