What To Do If Your Frigidaire Electric Oven Temperature Won’t Set Correctly

Every modern American kitchen has an oven, and Frigidaire is one of the well-known producers of high-quality kitchen appliances today. The simplest and time saving formula is pan + protein + vegetables + salt + oil = dinner. Unfortunately, like with any other appliances, things can go wrong. If you notice food taking longer to cook or it comes overcooked, the issue might be related to inaccurate oven temperature. Even when you do everything according to the recipe, the oven temperature that is set too high or too low can easily spoil your dinner. Don’t let that happen! At first, take a look at the tips below.

Firstly, follow these simple tips if your oven temperature does not set correctly:

  • Make sure the oven is preheated.
    The oven needs about 20 minutes to preheat before baking.
  • Check the type of cookware.
    If you use dark baking pans, lower the oven temperature. These pans retain heat and some food might overcook even at the regular baking temperature.
  • Make sure the temperature sensor is not touching the wall of the oven.
    If the sensor is touching the wall may result in the incorrect temperature reading and therefore will significantly reduce your oven’s performance.
  • Make sure the heat is not blocked from circulating.
    Heat should circulate throughout the oven to maintain the proper temperature.
  • Make sure the oven door is tightly closed.
    If the door is not sealing properly, it may decrease the temperature inside the cabinet. Opening the oven too often during the cooking process can cause the temperature to drop as well.

If you have followed all the tips above, but your oven temperature is still incorrect, you might need the technician’s help to solve this issue. Call us at (602) 344-9336 to schedule a service appointment!

Remember to unplug your appliances before conducting the repair!

Repair & Diagnostics

Temperature Sensor

Broken Temperature Sensor

The temperature sensor is used to monitor the oven temperature. A malfunctioning sensor may result in early oven shut off, or it may even fail to shut off the voltage entirely. In this case it is necessary to replace the damaged part ASAP.

Convection fan in oven

Malfunctioning Convection Fan

Convection fans circulate the hot air within the oven.In a convection oven. A malfunctioning convection fan motor will result in inconsistent temperature inside the oven, which may significantly impact the baking process. Try touching the fan blade and turning it a little bit manually. If you feel resistance it means that the bearing or even the whole convection fan assembly needs to be replaced.

oven control board

Damaged Control Board

Rather often the core of the problem may lie with the malfunctioning control board. Due to the general complexity of this part, it is always easier to replace it with a new part rather than trying to swap specific components. We would recommend visually inspecting the control board and making sure that there are no visible burns or other signs of physical damage.

Oven heating element

Malfunctioning Bake or Broil Elements

A malfunctioning bake or broil element could result in an incorrect oven temperature. You can determine that an element is defective by checking for any visible breaks or blistering.
