Oven Temperature Not Accurate

Oven Temperature Not Accurate

If your oven’s temperature is not accurate, there are a few potential reasons and troubleshooting steps you can try:

  1. Check the oven thermometer: Start by verifying the accuracy of your oven thermometer. Place a reliable oven thermometer inside the oven and set the temperature to a specific value, such as 350°F (175°C). After preheating for some time, compare the reading on the oven thermometer with the set temperature. If there’s a significant difference, it indicates an issue with your oven’s temperature calibration.
  2. Calibrate the oven temperature: Many ovens allow you to calibrate or adjust the temperature settings. Refer to your oven’s user manual for instructions on how to calibrate the temperature. Typically, this involves pressing specific buttons or accessing a calibration mode to increase or decrease the temperature by a certain amount.
  3. Preheat for longer: In some cases, ovens may take longer to reach the desired temperature. Try preheating the oven for an extended period, say 15-20 minutes longer than the recommended preheating time, and then check if the temperature is closer to the desired setting.
  4. Use an oven thermometer: As an alternative solution, you can rely on an oven thermometer placed inside the oven to monitor and adjust cooking times and temperatures accordingly. This way, you can compensate for any inaccuracies in your oven’s temperature settings.
  5. Consult a professional: If you have tried the above steps and your oven still doesn’t maintain accurate temperatures, it may be best to seek assistance from a professional appliance technician or contact the manufacturer’s customer support for further guidance or to schedule a repair.


Remember to prioritize your safety while troubleshooting or dealing with appliances. Always follow proper safety procedures and consult professionals when necessary.
