I finally found my Coleman stove top oven that I wasn’t sure where it was let alone what state it was in. It’s been missing for a few years! Anywho, I stuck it on the stove with a oven thermometer inside of it. I’m about 60 degrees off on the oven indicator. Does anyone know if there’s a way to adjust thoes??

I don't know how to adjust it but wish I did . You are lucky yours is off by 60 degrees . I have 2 ovens . One is 75 degrees hotter than indicated the other is 100 degrees hotter . They burn everything if you trust the door thermometer .

No way to adjust it, so it's best to use a separate thermometer; many here do, I think.  I use one like this:

Same here.  Mine is way off.  The door gauge shows MUCH less that the actual temp.

This may be better. Just have to find a way to close oven door with the wire exiting somewhere.

My oven thermometer goes to 250 and stops. I use an oven thermo like the one posted in #3. I've tried using an electronic digital thermometer, but the one I got wouldn't do anything as simple as just giving me the temperature in the oven. I need to go shopping again before camping season kicks off.

I went ahead and purchased this device for my BBQ. It has 2 probes so you can measure meat temp and also oven temp. Good up to 300ft. Transmitter on left. Price was right. IMG_3521__1555697623_33679.jpg  IMG_3522__1555697696_53153.jpg

Ed: Will that one simply tell me what the oven temp IS? The one I bought would only tell me when it got to a pre-set temp, but not the actual oven temp.

 There are two probes. One can be used with the supplied metal support to tell oven temp only. You can use the second one inserted into your hunkameat. If probe No.1 is your oven temp then probe 2 is your food or vice versa. The wires are wrapped in metal so they won't melt. And you can see this far away from the scene of the crime.
  In short, 2 temps can be monitored.

  from the item information page:   monitor two different meats or one meat and the grill/oven/smoker temp remotely from 300 feet away.

 That would be good for measuring vent temps as it has the right range.

Got that covered:

              

I picked up the full set of Fluke temperature measuring bits for $2 at a yard sale a couple of years ago:

Ed: I compared the contact thin-film thermocouple probe I'm using above to a wire thermocouple like yours, and the contact probe seemed much more sensitive and accurate. The wire thermocouple read about 150F less than the contact probe. You can see I have a wire thermocouple stuck under the vent nut in the pics above. I've compared the contact probe to a calibrated MIG thermometer and it was very accurate within the range of the MIG thermo.

The scary part was when I tried to use a gas temp probe to measure the temp near the mantle. Of course, i stuck the probe right through the mantle, resulting in a jet of plasma aimed at the globe. I switched back to the contact probe and found the temp of the globe where the plasma was hitting was at ~1,100F and rising FAST! I shut the lantern down as it was a nice green sunrise globe.

My buddy Rick and I experimented with this very same issue and found that the door thermometer reads 40-60 degrees less than the actual temperature inside the box. The Coleman over works well, I’ve found as long as I don’t multi-task. If I get busy with other stuff, everything in the over comes our “Old Testament” style.

I was still recovering my gear from the late April Lonestar gathering and your post had me thinking about adjustments.

essentially, you can adjust the gauge a little bit but it involves removal and dis-assembly depending on what tools you have.

I will take it apart again once I finish up my recovery cleaning and storing and then build up a how to for everyone

Curly--It usually requires a needle-puller to remove the needle and place it in the proper location. Besides, i seriously doubt the linearity of the Coleman thermometer--it's ability to read correctly over a wide range.

I'm contemplating finding a good dial-type oven thermometer of the right size and replacing the Coleman one with it.

I am considering the same and have the basic measurements for a close enough replacement thermometer.

but, after adjusting the original to 350deg, (biscuit temp) I slowly ramp'd up the house oven to 375 then 400 and the original, the oven temp and my point and test thermometer were all within 5 deg of each other so i called that a win.

the adjustment is simple as pushing the back side of the bar that surrounds the coiled spring metal that expands/contracts with the temp change to match what the actual temp of the oven is. once I figured it out I was able to adjust the gauge within 30 seconds until I got it to match at 350.

I figure within a few degrees is more workable than a 15-30 degree difference
