Question about KitchenAid Architect Series KEBC208KSS Electric Double Oven
The oven thermostat shows the oven has reached to proper temperature but food was not getting done, I put in another oven thermometer and it shows the oven a 210 degrees when the oven thermostat shows 350degrees.
The problem with the oven temperature not matching the set temperature could be caused by a bad temperature sensor or a control board problem. You can check the resistance of the temperature sensor with a volt/ohm meter.
Unplug the range and remove the temperature sensor from the inside of the oven. Remove the screws that mount it in the back of the oven and carefully pull it into the oven cavity until you encounter wire harness disconnect plug. Unplug the sensor and check the resistance using the volt/ohm meter. At room temperature, the sensor probe should measure about 1080 ohms. If the temperature probe resistance is okay, I recommend checking the resistance through the wire circuit from the control board. The wiring diagram for this range is shown in the image below. The sensor circuit is connected to the control board through the violet wires. With the range still unplugged but the sensor plugged back in, measure the resistance through the violet wires that connect to the control board. You should measure the same 1080 ohms. If you do not get the same resistance, then a wire harness problem is causing a problem with the sensor. You will likely need to replace the wire harness in this situation.
If the reading is okay at the control board, then you could have a bad electronic oven control board. You could also have a problem with the igniter that might prevent the oven from getting up to temperature.If the igniter glows but the resistance does not decrease to the point where enough current will flow through the gas valve so that it will open, you could have an intermittent problem with the burner igniting that would cause your temperature problem.

If your electric oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating element in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself...
