Question and Answers


My Kenmore oven heats but not as hot as it should be.


Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

To begin with, both oven elements are use during bake. During a normal bake mode, the oven alternates between the bake and broil element. So, you will need to check and confirm that both elements in the oven will heat. If one of the two is not working, this could be problem. You did not state how far below the set temperature the oven is actually heating up to. 

The oven temperatures can be calibrated up or down 35 degrees if both oven elements are working and if the temperature only needs to be raised 35 degrees or less.

On page 18 in the Use and Care Manual  it will have the instructions for calibrating the oven temperature.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.
