  1. Hi, I have a microwave/wall oven combo that is less than 2 yrs old, but the temp in the oven never seems to be correct. I first suspected that I had a problem after issues cooking Christmas dinner in 2017. I added to reliable thermometers to the center rack of the oven. The oven made and continues to make the sound that it is at temp when it is more than 200 degrees below it. I looked at the manual and put it through a calibration procedure, but that was only good to adjust 30 degrees and it was off by like 50. I then tried to set it 20 degrees warmer, but it takes forever to get to high temps and then it seems to go to the temp I asked for rather than the one I asked for. When I last attempted to bake bread, it took around 40 minutes to get to 450. I did try another calibration procedure, but I really don’t think it changed it. Thanks

    Oven repair gone bad

    I am in Germany but I think the same repair principles will also work on appliances here. I have a built-in countertop oven with a ceramic glass countertop stove top. The bottom heating element for the oven failed. I bought a new part and replaced it. After I repaired it the controls of the oven and burners do not work properly. In order to get the burners to turn on I have to have the oven on, otherwise there is no power to the burners. It also appears that the oven heat is not regulating properly. When I turn in on to the very lowest setting (in order to operate the stove top burners) it seems that the oven becomes VERY hot, much more than the temperature setting. I re-checked all the connections and they are exactly the way they should be. I'm at a loose for what to do. Any ideas? ONE MORE THOUGHT. When I was repairing the oven I found a silver unprotected wire wrapping around the rear panel of the oven and returning back inside. The only way to get the rear cover off was to cut that wire. I thought is was simply some kind of securing wire to hold the back on. Could it be a wire to a temperature controller or thermostat? If so, could that wire be soldered back and function properly? At the moment I only wrapped it together. Thx!
