Hello these ovens they have a dial type thermostat or electronic touch pad controller , either model will have a probe in the oven it is a capilary tube at the rear or side in the internal space of the oven , follow that probe and it will lead to the thermostat ,and that part will need changing, if faulty, are sure that the thermostat is bad

How can I check thermostste on GE P7 before buying new one

wow much to high to pay? it can be checked for continuity with an ohm meter. u can buy cheap meters for like 5 bucks or so. are u sure their trying to charge them much for a thermostat? maybe they thought u meant something else? if its getting way to hot u have a bad oven sensor? it to can be checked with a meter. When ur thermostat goes out due to overheating , the oven will not operate. thermal thermostats are not resettable. oven sensor is located near the back along the wall it thin and may have a glass look?

Oven sometimes works ok other times takes twice as long to cook . Think it may be thermostat .I have no experience of repairing ovens Is it difficult to change thermostat

sometimes they are hard to get to, looking at this picture i would think the panel has a screw or two on it that have to be removed , and always remove the power first, the thermostat has a capilery that goes into the oven , it is kind of like a long small tube that has a larger tube at the end of it , the end is what feels the heat so this long hose like tube will have to be sneaked back into where you took the old one out of. you must be very careful with the new one or you will be buying more of them if you get back to me Model, make, serial number i will locate one for you to buy ,, also temp range on the one you now have in the oven you can find this by looking a the knob temps ...Frank

My oven will not warm up. It will just stay at 100 degrees. The gas stove works fine but the oven will not warm up to the desired heat. It worked fine 2 days ago, any suggestions.

My dear friend, i suspect the oven thermostat to be responsible for this. It is a switch that opens when the temperature of a oven is set. Therefore it is bad and cannot work according to the temperature it is set to. The thermostat is located at the control panel where a liquid filled temperature sensor bulb which senses and maintains the temperature of the oven by turning it on and off at every cycle.
First You have to test the thermostat before replacing it. Before repairs or testing can begin you must disconnect the electricity at the fuse panel, at the circuit breaker panel, or by pulling the plug. Make sure the power is off before proceeding. A jolt from 220 volts can be fatal, use caution! Since i do not know the exact maytag oven type, here is the general process for all types of oven.
  1. Access the oven thermostat, which is located in different places depending on the make and model: On freestanding ranges, access the thermostat by removing the screws that hold the back panel in place at both ends. On models with front-loading controls, remove the panel and tilt it for access. Be careful not to let the wires disconnect from their components. Some built-in models have a removable back splash. Lift the backsplash, rest it on the cook top and remove the screws from the back splash, which holds the rear panel. On wall ovens or eye-level ranges, access the control panel by opening the door and removing the screws that secure it. The screws may be under the exhaust hood or below the control panel. If the control panel is hinged, simply tilt it towards you. On some models both the rear and front control panels must be removed. The screws may be found on the trim and occasionally the trim must be removed.
  2. When testing the thermostat switch contacts for continuity, refer to the wiring diagram and remove only those wires being tested - and only one pair at a time. Test switch contact terminals as per your wiring diagram. If the switch lacks continuity at any of the contact terminal points then the entire thermostat switch needs to be replaced.
  3. Adjusting the thermostat: Test the oven temperature by placing the tester in the oven's center and leaving it for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Record the minimum and maximum temperatures of three cycles, then add those figures together, divide the result by six and you have the oven's average temperature. If the average temperature is more than 25 degrees off, try calibrating the thermostat by following your appliance manual instructions for thermostat calibration.
  4. Normally, thermostats are calibrated by pulling the oven's thermostat knob off, turning the knob over and adjusting the calibration ring on the back. If your oven doesn't have a calibration ring you may need to replace the thermostat.
To replace the thermostat of the oven, please follow the steps below:
  1. Disconnect the capillary tube and push it through the back oven wall, being careful not to break the flammable capillary tube wire.
  2. Remove the screws that secure the thermostat to the control panel and gently pull the thermostat out, leaving the wires in place.
  3. To install a new thermostat, reverse the disassembly procedures, transferring the wires individually from the old unit to the new.
Hope this helped you. Thank you for using fixya.

Where is the thermostat located in the main oven of my Creda Europa Solar oven. Thanks

Depends which thermostat you are referring to.
Thje main oven stat is on the control panel, and is marked with the temp, the sensor being located at the top rear of the oven compartment.
The other stats are located at the top of the oven outer casing under the the top cover. you need to remove oven from housing to access these.

My GE gas oven temperature goes up and down a lot

The Thermostat on the oven might have to be replaced. This part is usually located behind the knob with the temperature settings. There is always a fluctuation in the temperature(usually 5% before the thermostat cuts the burner of and then back on. Other things can also influence oven temperature, like air drafts(usually caused by unrepaired or construction gaps in the wall on back of the range, but more often its the thermostat that need replacing. The following link can provide you with a further description of how the oven works: I think you can also purchase your thermostat at that same site.

I have a KEBI17DBL8 Oven that will not work after using the self clean cycle. Should I get the thermostat replaced or but a new oven?

No, no need to get a thermostat or replace the unit...yet.

sounds like a tripped hi-limit thermo.

that model number looks like a double oven wall unit, correct ? if so, big job. if not awesome. if it is, it's hard only because these are heavy. (alot of techs like myself have "wall oven carts" that allow me to remove it fairly easy) you might not have to pull it out though if it's not a wall oven, my bad.

however, I think it may be the older unit's manufactured by "Dacor". if so the limit switch on most of those ranges is a "non-resetable" style. meaning you'll have to replace the themal cut-out or aka thermal switch.
*FIRST, unplug the unit or shut off the breaker.
the hi-limit is located by the latch/lock assembly, so you'll need to dismantle the unit to a degree. if it's a free standing range, it's pretty easy. lift the top and the latch/lock access panel is located right there.

you'll need to determine the "why" as well of course. did the cooling fan/blower fail (#4173004), or the cooling fan therostat (#4173008) ?

the part number you'll need for the thermal switch failure replacement is #814505. check the old one by ohming it out first of course.

hope that helps,

good luck

XL 44 Gas Range Oven temperature problem

hi If the oven doesn't heat evenly or doesn't heat at all, the oven thermostat may be malfunctioning. First, determine how much the temperature in the oven is off from the control setting. To do this, put an oven thermometer on a center rack inside the oven and turn the oven on for about 20 minutes, with the thermostat set at any range between 300 degrees and 400 degrees Farenheit. If the oven thermometer reads 25 degrees or more lower or higher than the oven control setting, the thermostat should be recalibrated. Here's how to calibrate the thermostat:

Step 1: Pull off the thermostat knob on the control panel. Behind the knob are two screws holding a round, notched plate. Loosen these screws, but do not remove them.

Step 2: With a screwdriver, change the notch setting on the notched plate by turning the plate counterclockwise; for every eighth of a turn, the oven temperature goes up about 25 degrees Farenheit. To turn the heat down, turn the plate clockwise.

Some thermostats can be adjusted by turning a screw inside the control knob shaft housing. To do so, remove the knob and insert a screwdriver into the shaft so that the screwdriver blade engages a screw slot. Turn the screwdriver counterclockwise about one-eighth of a turn to raise the heat about 
25 degrees Farenheit. Here's how to test a malfunctioning thermostat:

Step 1: Test the thermostat with a VOM (multimeter) set to the RX1 scale. The thermostat is located directly on the back of the control knob that regulates the heat. To gain access to the thermostat, remove the back service panel to the control panel.

Step 2: Disconnect one electrical lead wire from a terminal of the thermostat and clip one probe of the VOM to each thermostat terminal. If the thermostat is in working order, the meter will register zero. If the needle jumps to a higher reading, the thermostat is faulty and should be replaced.

Step 3: If necessary, replace the thermostat with a new one of the same type.

If you need to replace the thermostat, follow these guidlines:

Step 1: Disconnect the terminal wires to the thermostat and pull off the control knob.

Step 2: Remove the retaining screws. On some ranges, there is a wire running from the thermostat into the oven. This wire operates a sensing bulb that controls the thermostat. The sensing bulb is usually held by a bracket; unscrew this bracket to remove the bulb. Then carefully slip out the wire, the bulb, and the thermostat.

Step 3: Install the new thermostat using a reverse procedure.
