Oven Too Cold - Already Calibrated - Electric Ranges

Possible Solutions

Keep the Door Closed

Limit the number of times the door is opened. Use the oven light to check baking progress. Opening the oven door allows heat to escape and the oven to cool. 

Importance of Preheating

  • Preheating is necessary for good results.  Allow the oven to fully preheat before inserting food. 
  • Do not open the door to insert food until the preheat tone sounds.

Was the Correct Cycle Selected?

Ensure the correct cycle (bake, proof, warm, etc.) is selected, and the desired temperature is input. Refer to the Owner's Manual for cycle information and instructions on using the control.

Was an entire oven rack or the oven bottom lined with aluminum foil?

Do not cover an entire oven rack or the oven bottom with aluminum foil below the baking pan. This can block good air flow.

Does the oven need to be calibrated?

The oven provides accurate temperatures but may cook faster or slower than your previous oven. The temperature calibration can be adjusted, and it can be changed to Fahrenheit or Celsius. Perform a Bake Performance Test to determine if the oven needs calibration.

Refer to the Oven Temperature Control section in your Owner's Manual for specific instructions on calibrating your oven.
