Is it the bake/broil that your having problems with?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Yes, its the Bake that needs to be set. I haven't tried the Broil
Expert:  william replied 3 years ago.
Try the broil for me please? Thanks. Also how old is this unit?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Bake

At the end of PreHeat the display read 350 the thermometer read 320

At 20 minutes the display read 350 the thermometer read 325

At 40 minutes the display read 350 the thermometer read 335

Broil

At 5 minutes the display read 550 the thermometer read 275

At10 minutes the display read 550 the thermometer read 475

At 15 minutes the display read 550 the thermometer read over 550

 

The stove is about 4 years old but has always been like this. If I need 350 I just set it to 385,

Expert:  william replied 3 years ago.

This could be a sensor problem i would replace the oven sensor first. If you need help just ask. i would start there first. Your broil is fine.

Could you please just send me the procedure for calibrating the oven temperature.

Thanks

Expert:  william replied 3 years ago.
What kind of thermometer are you using please?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
A round one that sits on the rack or hangs from the rack. I set it in the middle of the rack and the rack was in the middle position.
Expert:  william replied 3 years ago.

Im sorry but those ones they give off bad readings you will not get an accurate reading. In order to get a accurate reading you need one of them thermal guns. Then after getting one the test it okay.

Are you telling me you can't send me the steps needed to calibrate the temperature?
Expert:  william replied 3 years ago.

Your not getting a (true reading with that thermometer) that you are using. If you recalibrate this using the one that you have now this will be totally be off on the temps.

Thats why i mentioned about that thermal gun.

Please send me the steps needed to calibrate the temperature? If you don't have them please tell me.

Thanks

Expert:  william replied 3 years ago.
Im gonna opt out and let someone else tell you all because that im trying to get you to understand that if you recalibrate this using that thermometer that you have and if you start increasing the temps that you will fry your expensive oven up and will cause more damage that what you want.
Expert:  william replied 3 years ago.

Ok here you go. I would recommend another thermastat though.

 

Place an oven thermometer inside the oven.

2. Check the temperature variance by running the oven

for one hour in each mode at 350°F (except broil

modes). In broil the normal operating temperature is

555°F. Take note of the temperature variance in each

mode.

3. With the oven off, press and hold the 0 and # keys

on the number keypad at the same time. After about

three seconds "PAS" will appear on the display.

4. Immediately enter 6428 on the number keypad, then

START. "SLCt" (select) will appear on the display.

5. Press the key for the cooking mode you want to

change the offset for (CONV BAKE, CONV BROIL,

PURE CONV, CONV ROAST, BAKE or BROIL).

6. Enter an offset temperature value from 1 to 35°F (1

to 18 for ovens set to Celsius). Press the # key after

entering the numeric value if you want the offset to

be a negative (-) value. Press # again to toggle the

(-) setting off. "Edit" appears on the display when you

start to enter the offset value.

7. Press START to save the setting.

8. Repeat steps 5 and 6 above for any other cooking

modes you need to offset.

9. Press CANCEL · SECURE to exit offset mode.
