fgf328fsa oven temp climbs to high
« on: October 23, 2014, 08:12:03 AM »
Frigidaire gas oven too hot, is it wise to replace board and temp probe same time. I have not made it out to the site yet. So I have run no test. Just wanted to get another opinion  8)....#FGF328FSA

all depends on what they mean to high and how they are measuring the temp. In my experience many of these can be fixed by doing a proper(manufacture recommended) temp measurement with a good temp probe and showing the customer the result then explain how terrible the cheap oven thermometers work. Many other times you just need to set the temp offset.

yes keep in mind oven's AVERAGE a temp... if you preheat to 350 it will preheat higher than 350 on first heat up and so on. Think of it as a sign wave so the average is 350ish. It won't be exact.

Set point is the average temp. Oven thermometers, the dial you're are generally very accurate. Only kicker is, they take 30 minutes to read the actual temp.

have found lots of dial thermometers out of wack  no one wants to spend anything so they buy 1 at the dollar store   i use a thermocouple has very low mass and if you do a temp check   middle of oven   350 is average  400 cut out 300 cut in is pretty typical  seems like normally 50 to 60 deg over and undershoot is what i see

I use the mercury thermometer that's 40-50 years old and it never fails, doesn't need batteries and is very accurate.

Thanks for the replies, the sensor probed ohm correctly, after talking to customer in person, he explained in more detail, that temp. reading would continually climb and would show this on temp display. Faulty control. Also replaced probe, since it inexpensive, board being so sensitive. repair successful, Customer was Vietnam vet. Honored that he was pleased with the job. Once again thanks for the input on about thermometers.  ;)

Awesome. If it registered the climb on the control you know it's fawked up! Sensor was more than likely okay. Good job
