Possible Solutions

Did you set the control for BAKE and desired temperature?

Has the temperature been set to Celsius instead of Fahrenheit?

The temperature in the oven(s) is preset to Fahrenheit, but can be changed to Celsius. If the oven has accidentally been changed to Celsius, the oven control will not exceed 260°.

Is the oven Pre-heated?

Did you place food in oven before preheat cycle was complete?

Did you open the oven door during preheat or to check baking/cooking results?

What type of Bakeware are you using?

The bakeware material effects cooking results. Follow manufacturer's recommendations and use the bakeware size recommended in the recipe.

How many pans were on the rack? How large of pan were you using?

Hot air must be able to circulate to cook food evenly. Allow 2" of space/clearance around baking pan(s) and the oven walls.  

Was an entire oven rack or the oven bottom lined with aluminum foil?

Do not cover an entire oven rack or the oven bottom with aluminum foil below the baking pan. This can block good air flow.

Does the oven need to be calibrated?

The oven provides accurate temperatures; however, it may cook faster or slower than your previous oven.  The temperature calibration can be adjusted. It can be changed in Fahrenheit or Celsius.

Perform a Bake Performance Test to determine if the oven needs to be calibrated.

Please refer to the Oven Temperature Control section in your Use and Care Guide for specific instructions on how to calibrate your oven.
