right side. Both have performed nearly perfectly for 6 years. In the last week, the right side oven seems to have a
thermostat issue. It basically stops heating once it reaches ~350, no matter what temperature setting I have adjusted the
knob to. To diagnose the problem, I took some temperature readings using a standard oven thermometer (all metal) over a
40 min period for each oven separately. Over the 40 min period, I adjusted the temperature setting from 400 then 450 and
finally 500. I first tested the smaller left side oven which is and has always been working properly... these measurements
can be used to compare to the faulty oven's measurements.
The results are not displaying properly in the forum, so below is a link you can click that shows a snapshot of my screen
where I have collected the data (or you can click on the attachment at the bottom of the post):
To my untrained and very unprofessional eye, the issue is either A) a bad thermostat (seems more likely) or a faulty heating
element that won't heat the oven up past 350 anymore (seems less likely). Anyone have any comments on this? How can I
better identify the problem? What part or parts do I need to replace to fix this? Is there just a simple way to recalibrate the
oven? Thanks in advance for any help!
