Temperature gauge won't elevate past 350 and timer is messed up
The timer is acting nuts and the temperature setting only goes up to 350 all of a sudden! When I try to change the temp to go higher, it goes lower in 5 degree increments. Should I try to reclean again and see if it resets?

Somehow you have entered into the oven calibration mode at least that is what it sounds like. Normally if your press the clear button or reset it should come out of that mode you also could try to turn your breaker off for 15-30 min and then turn it back on. I dont think I would recommend cleaning cycle if the oven control is acting up.

I understand that your Frigidaire electric oven, model# es 200/300, will not shut off. I also see that it gets very hot, way past the set temperature. First, make sure you have not put it into the self-cleaning cycle. If it is not in the self-cleaning cycle, I suggest resetting your appliance, by shutting the power off at your home's circuit breaker, for 3-5 minutes. Once power is restored, you will need to set the clock before starting any cycle. I ask that you please follow up with a comment on the post, at your convenience, to advise if further troubleshooting is needed or if your air conditioner status has changed successfully. Hope this is helpful.
The cheapest would be to go buy an oven thermometer. A couple of dollars. Set oven at 350. Put thermometer on the oven rack. Put in a cake pan, etc with water in it. Let be 15-30 minutes. Then read the thermometer. You can tell by how much it is off.
Really, what might have to be replaced is the thermostat. That constantly trying to kick in would be the ticking noise.
Make sure the controls are set properly: that the oven selector switch is set correctly and that the temperature switch is set to the desired temperature. Where applicable, make sure the oven timer is set to manual.
If nothing else on the Range, Oven or Cooktop is working then Check the fuse
Try to set it at 500 degrees and see if it goes off at 350. If it does, then it probably needs calibrating. You can calibrate it by taking the knob off and finding a set screw in the stem where the knob sits. If this is not the problem, you may have to replace the thermostat. By the way, check to see if your temperature probe is not touching the wall of the oven. It will give it a false reading. Let me know if any of these things work and we will go from there.
Sears Kenmore Electric Wall OVen, Mod.#9114012192 purchased in 1993. Set oven for 425 degrees, reaches set temperature, stays on about 10 minutes and temp. display goes out and oven starts cooling down. Will not stay on desired temp.to cook. Can you tell me what my problem is? Thanks. Doug.
you guys should check your tempurature sensor. Our oven has been acting weird like saying it has heated up to 400 degrees in like 1 minute haha. Well after a few months of this happening on occasion we get an F2 error flashing..
did some research on it and apparently for GE ovens this is a temp sensor gone bad. Im looking to buy one now which is how i found this post, i just thought id tell you all what i found out and maybe you should look into that as well.
