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?

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.

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°

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

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.

GE oven temperature is not true, and needs to be reset. Oven temp reads 350, but is actuallyonly 325. Can you help?


The temperature is within manufactures specifications.
By that I mean that the majority of manufactures allow a tolerance of + or - 10 % of the set temperature.
So, in your case, 10% of 350 degrees is 35 degrees, thereby showing that the actual temperature you are obtaining is well within the 10% allowance.
I hope this helps you .

Oven shuts down before reaching correct temperature


You will need to check the oven calibration using a thermocouple based thermometer(the one you stick in the oven is not reliable). Electric ovens should keep a near constant tempature so if you have it set to 350 the oven should stay around 350 once temp is reached. Now gas ovens are a little different. Most use a on/off thermostat and that means the temp can vary from 320 degrees to 370 degrees to keep an average tempature of 350. So if it is a gas oven you will need to let it warm-up for 10 minutes then start taking the lowest and highest 5 consectutive readings. Then add the 5 reads together and then divide the number by 5 and it should be within 10 degrees of the set tempature. If it is off by more than 50 degrees then you might not be able to get it back to proper calibration. The calibration methods are different for each range and depend on the type of thermostat you have digital(push button controls) or manual(knob). The owner's manual for your range might contain the instructions or consult the manufacture's website for the instructions.

Maytag oven needs temp calibration


Take your temp knob off and look in the center of the stem and you should find a small set screw. Using a small precision screwdriver, turn the screw until you see the light come on. (You won't have to turn it far.) Turn it a little at a time, maybe a 1/16 of a turn. Leave your thermometer in the oven with the door closed and at or near the temp probe that is in the oven. This way, you are getting a true reading.
