A:

Before making any adjustments, I recommend accurate measuring the oven temperature according to the manufacturer's directions. An accurate measure of oven temperature can only be taking by using a precision thermocouple thermometer. The oven must be allowed to preheat and then cycle at least five times. An average temperature measurement over a 10 minute period of time would provide an accurate indication of the oven temperature.

If the difference in temperature is a consistent difference that has been accurately measured, you can adjust the oven temperature up to 35 degrees using the oven control. This procedure is shown in the first image below.

If the difference in temperature varies between 50 degrees above and below the set temperature using the measurement method described above, then you could have a bad oven temperature sensor or a failed electronic oven control board.

The control board detects the oven temperature by monitoring the resistance of the oven temperature sensor probe. This probe protrudes through the back wall of the oven. If you are able to access this probe and unplug it, you can check the resistance using a volt/ohm meter. At room temperature, you should measure near 1100 ohms of resistance. The temperature resistance chart for this component is shown in the second image below. If the resistance of this temperature sensor probe is way off, then it will need to be replaced.

If the temperature sensor resistance is normal, then you may have a failed control board or a wire harness failure between the sensor and the control board.

As long as you are sure you are setting the controls correctly, this problem is going to be the electronic control or the oven temp sensor. The only way to make this test is with a meter. If you are able to set the temp to settings below 300 degrees but the unit heats higher, I would suspect the temp sensor. If the control will not accept commands to lower the temp below 300 degrees, I would suspect the electronic control. I hope this helps. If you need more help, respond to this thread with additional details.
