How to Calibrate Oven Temperature on Whirlpool Ovens

Whirlpool ovens come in many forms, including ovens that are part of a range, drop-in ovens and wall ovens. The oven's function and temperature are both controlled using an electronic oven control, housed in the control panel of the appliance. After regular usage, it is not uncommon for the oven's thermostat to require adjustment to ensure that the oven always heats to the correct temperature. To calibrate the oven temperature, use the electronic oven controls.

Step 1

Place an oven thermometer inside of the oven cavity, then pre-heat the oven to an even temperature, such as 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 2

Turn on the oven light using the oven light button on the oven's control panel.

Step 3

Look at the temperature reading on the thermometer to determine the adjustment needed.

Step 4

Turn off the oven.

Step 5

Press the "Bake" button, then press and hold the "Up" arrow button until "550" is displayed on the display.

Step 6

Press and hold the "Bake" button until "0" appears on the display. If the oven temperature has been calibrated in the past, the temperature adjustment is displayed in place of "0."

Step 7

Press the "Up" button repeatedly to increase the temperature of the oven, or press the "Down" button repeatedly to decrease the temperature, depending on the adjustment needed. After you reach the appropriate setting, do not press any buttons until the time of day appears.
