Anyone had this problem with a GE gas oven please?
First, the internal auto-probe started undercooking everything, but when
I replaced the probe, it did nothing. I figured the problem may be with
The oven thermometer was drastically under-reading, leading to my only
being able to judge cooking times with an 'external' temp probe
Now, using an internal add-on thermometer to judge the real internal
temp, the reading on the panel under-reads badly. But when I try to
compensate, over-adjusts just as badly. the oven't internal thermometer
(as shown by the panel) reads 375 when the real temp is 250. But
if I set temp to 425 (thinking that I will get about 375), the add-on
thermometer rushes up to 500!
If I then try to get the temp in the oven down, the oven over-reads all
the way down to about 300, when it is only about 25 degrees off.
So the panel temp seems to be about 75 degrees off (that is way outside
the level of adjustment on the panel: I Have tried to adjust that and it
doesn't seem to make any difference to how badly the panel reads the
Am I likely to be able to fix this by replacing the internal thermostat
at the rear of the oven on the wall, judging by these symptoms please?
Or is this sort of haywire-reading something else?
I can't help with the electronics, but if you want to see if the
thermostat is in the right place, you could set a bimetal thermometer
