Greetings! My wife and I have noticed that our oven doesn't seem to heat consistently - sometimes it'll be a ~ 10 degrees cool, sometimes 15 degrees too hot. We're using a standard bimetal spring oven thermometer (which I know isn't the most accurate temperature measuring device). That being said, the things we bake don't seem to come out consistently done at the same time (cookies, cakes, etc.). What can I do to figure out what's wrong with our oven? Thanks!
ANSWER Joe, You want to get an accurate thermometer or multimeter with a probe and temperature setting TJMA-DMT3 place the thermometer or temp. probe in the cenetr of the oven cavity and pre heat the oven for at least 15 minutes. Allow the oven to cycle at least three cycles after the pre heat. make note of the temperaturwes, average the temperature readings after the three cycles , if the average hi temperature is within 225 dgrs. of the set temperature, your oven is working properly. If you wish, most controls can now be calbrated to within 5 dgrs. of the temp. setting, those instructions are usually in the owners manual.
