R or GR Series Gas Range Oven Temperature Issue


  • Food is burning or cooking too quickly
  • Oven temperature is extremely hot or cold compared to set temperature
  • What is the max temperature on the oven or griddle knob for a gas range?
  • What is the difference between small oven, large oven, and griddle temperature knobs?
  • Oven temperature is off by approximately 50° or more


If the oven temperature of an R or GR Series Gas Range is off on a unit that has more than one oven or has a griddle, verify that the correct knob has been installed for the correct component.

  • Make sure that the knobs are in the correct position. Oven knobs should have a Broil setting on them. If they do not, check other knob positions and swap accordingly.
  • For both R and GR Series Gas Ranges, the large (30") oven knob has a max temperature of 500°F and has "BROIL."
  • The small (18") oven knob has a max temperature of 500°F and does not have "BROIL."
  • The griddle knob has a max temperature of 450°F and does not have "BROIL."
  • A double griddle will have two knobs.


Oven temperatures will cycle up and down causing a fluctuation in actual temperature, although the displayed or set temperature will not change.

If these steps do not resolve the issue, no further troubleshooting advice is available. Contact Factory Certified Service to schedule an appointment for repair.
