Hello- The background panel is screened with gradients, but is expensive and hard to find. The easiest solution is to purchase an oven thermometer and allow to set for about 20 min at an indicated 350deg. Make sure that dial knob is tight and mark with a line at that point. Use a fine point sharpy, and clean surface before marking. Turn off, let cool, and turn to the new 350 mark and see if temp comes up and matches 350deg on thermometer. If it works ok, try marking 325, 375, 400, etc. ---Yes, Clockwise is up in temp. Let me know if this info helps. Have more if needed- Thanks - Ed
you shouldnt need to adjust the burners for a temp problem. the control has a built in calibration setting and it should be described in your owners manual. if you dont have the manual, then try to set the oven temp to max, 550, and then hold the bake button in for 10 to 30 seconds. after that it should beep and show you a 2 digit number like 00. that is the calibration mode, then you can adjust it up or down +/- 35 degrees. try to make a small adjustment first like 10 degrees and see how it bakes. if it takes too long to bake, then use + degrees, if it is burning things then lower -10 degrees. hope that helps you.
Always preheat your oven and let it cycle at least 2 times. Your unit may show 350 but the manufactures know that it is not 350. When it registers preheated, it really means that it is at an acceptable temperature to start cooking. If you think that it may not be calibrated correctly, your owner's manual will have instructions on how to recalibrate your oven. You will be able to raise or lower the temperature by + 25 degrees or - 25 degrees. As far as the gas smell, you will from time to time smell a gas smell with a gas oven especially if you are right at it when it ignites. If you are smelling gas when it is not in use then you should be extremely concerned.
hi. thanks for the question. does the door seal properly. check that..sometimes the calibration will go off. what i tell my customers to do is.buy a small oven thermometer, that you hang from the racks . then try the oven at 350 degrees .then look at the oven thermometer . and see what the difference is. so lf ,the oven temp is a bit low .cook at 375. degrees. that will make up the difference . no parts needed. cheap fix. thanks the appliance doc
I have just checked the baking guide in the manual and have found that it may not be us after all. (Maybe this is why they telll us to read the whole manual. Well, I never have) According to the cooking time for Baking, the range is very extensive. For example, an angel cake at 350 could take from 28-50 minutes, buscuits at 375-400 could take 8-16 minutes, layer cakes at 350-375 could take 25-40 minutes, pound cakes at 325-350 could take 45-70 minutes and fresh pies at 400-450 could take 35-60 minutes. Basically, the baking directions on the box means absolutely nothing to use Amana oven owners. We have no choice but to cook our food or baked goods until they are cooked, whenever that may be. :) Linda
