Oven temperature readings

I have a propane Force-10 oven that works fines - except for the temperature gauge. When the gauge reads 300 the inside temp can be over 400.

I have purchased an oven temp gauge that I can put inside on the shelf, but it's in the way most of the time and each time I look in to read it, I loose all the heat.

Can the gauge on the stove be fixed, or is there some other way of keeping in control of the temperature? Getting tired of burnt cookies or bread.

Re: Oven temperature readings

Easiest solution is a wireless sensor. Sensor goes in the oven, display wherever is convenient.
One example

Re: Oven temperature readings

If you have a remote infrared thermometer, you can take the temperature of the oven at various times after lighting it up, and correlate the readings to calibrate the existing gauge.

If the sensor for the built in thermometer is all dirty, cleaning it may help. If the present gauge is regular, like it always says 300 deg. F. and is actually 400 deg. F., you'll be able to work it out. If it varies, though, you might try and get another (no guarantees) thermometer.

I feel your pain with this one. My oven's thermostat doesn't work, so that I am checking its flame and temp. every 10 min. throughout a baking time. And there are things I daren't try to cook, because it is so finicky.

Good luck in getting a workable solution.
