Question about Amana AOCS3040SS Electric Single Oven

1 Answer

Oven temperature only gets to within 20-25 degrees of temp. set

If the oven is set for 350 degrees, a thermometer which is manually set inside the oven will only read approximately 325 degrees. The same situation occurs with most any temperature set. How can the thermostat be adjusted to read correctly?

Adjusting Oven Temperature
Oven temperature has been factory calibrated and tested. If
oven consistently over or under cooks food, adjust thermostat.
Oven temperature can be increased or decreased 35°F. To
avoid over adjusting oven, move temperature 5°F each time.
1. Push BAKE pad.
2. Press + pad until an oven temperature greater than 500°F
shows in display.
3. Immediately push and hold, approximately 5 seconds,
BAKE button until “00” appears.
4. Press + or - arrow pad to adjust oven temperature.
• To increase oven temperature (for a hotter oven), Press
pad until a positive number appears in display.
• To decrease oven temperature (for a cooler oven),
Press pad until a negative number appears in display.
5. Press OVEN CANCEL pad to save adjustment.
• Setting is saved if power fails or is disconnected.

My oven has had three thermostats fitted recently and an oven thermometer is regestering about 50 degrees cooler. what cani do?


To get a more accurate indication, set the oven to 350 degrees. Place your thermometer on the lowest shelf, take a reading. Place it in the middle shelf, wait for it to stabilize (5 minutes or so), take a reading, place it on the top shelf, wait 5 minutes take a reading, Average out all 3 readings, the average should be close to the thermostat setting.

How close should the temp control hold the temp


Generally the oven temperature will fluctuate as much as 30 degrees above or below the set temperature. The longer the oven is on, the less the temperature fluctuates. If you measure the highest and lowest temperatures readings with a thermometer after the oven has been preheated at least 20 minutes, you should come up with an average temperature somewhere within about 10 degrees of the set temperature. You can calibrate most ovens up to 35 degrees higher or lower if it is off. Any more than that requires replacing parts.

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.

The teamperature on the digital display can say 350 degrees and the oven thermatore that is located in the oven reads 310. Does this oven need to be calibrated? The oven is 6 years old.


The thermometer that hang on rack are Whooly inaccurate. A good one is the TAYLOR brand. As long as things bake within recipe time no adjustment needed but to do it;
  1. Press BAKE

  2. Select the maximum temp. depending on model it either 500 or 550

  3. Quickly (within 5-seconds of setting 550) press and hold the BAKE button approximately 5-15 seconds until "00" or the previously entered temperature adjustment is displayed.

    Pressing longer could cause an F0, F1 or F7 error to be displayed.

  4. Press the UP/DOWN arrow button to change the oven temperature in 5° increments to a maximum of +/- 35°

  5. Press the CLEAR or OFF button to return to normal operation.
But before doing that i suggest a new high quality thermometer that you hang on oven rack

I have a kenmore mark 1 oven in my apartment and the oven temperature says 1-9 instead of going in degrees such as 100, 350 etc. I am wondering which number stands for which heat?


This Conversion table is from the old Gas Mark scale
I'm thinking it should be right or at least pretty close.
You could also get a cheap ($5-7) oven thermometer from local grocery store.
Put it inside oven to check actual temp achieved.

Gas mark Fahrenheit Celsius
1⁄4 225° 107°
1⁄2 250° 121°
1 275° 135°
2 300° 149°
3 325° 163°
4 350° 177°
5 375° 191°
6 400° 204°
7 425° 218°
8 450° 232°
9 475° 246°

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!

Our ARG7302WW range is missing the temperature sticker for the dial...where should 350 degrees be and does it go up in temp clockwise?


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

Bosh double oven. Temp is 100 degrees cooler on top oven, any ideas? both on bake mode


The fact that top oven is 100degrees less than bottom is no relation between the two; they are controlled by independent stat controls and if the only way you know if the temp is correct, is to set a temp (such as 350 degrees) and put a thermometer in that oven to see if the thermometer is with in 25degrees of the control settting. You need to do this for the bottom oven as well to see if it is aslo within 25degrees of the setting. then you make adjustments for each unit independently. If the controls are mechanical (knob), then the adjustment is within the control (usually by removing knob and serching for a small screw). If the controls are electroonic, then you need to search the circuit board to see if there is adjstments mounted on the board. Goodluck,Macgivor

I have a frigidaire stove that heats to 50 degrees hotter than the know setting. Can it be adjusted to read correctly?


There is a calibration method to adjust the oven thermostat plus/minus 35 degrees if it is a digital display. The method varies depending on the model range. This calibration method is used to adjust the thermostat if it is not keeping proper tempature. For example if you are setting the oven to 350 and the actual temp it is keeping is 325 then you could use the calibration method to adjust it plus 25 degrees to correct the temp. Just so you know electric ovens will keep a pretty even temp but gas ovens will vary by 40 or more degrees to keep an "average" temp. For example the burner will come on when the oven is 330 degrees and turn off at 370. 330+370 then divide by 2=350. So a oven thermometer may not show you the temp you set it at in a gas oven but does not mean the oven temp is off.
