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.

Re: oven not getting to proper temperature
Hi, 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... Check out this tip that I wrote about the Oven not heating problem..

First need to see if supply voltage is correct.
Verify oven probe sensor to the thermostat Is working properly? (usually done by Ohm test)
Thermostast offer an option for calibration?
Also have you verified actual oven temperature with an external thermometer?
I will say that is the control board that is not working properly. Have you try to unplugged for phew minutes?, this will reset the current settings. If not, I will star replacing the control board. Good Luck!.
Two possible problems. If the oven has two or more elements for normal operation then one of these elements may be faulty. The thermostat may also be faulty and only heating to a far lesser temperature than required. The way to tell is turn the oven to a normal cooking temperature. If the oven indicator light stays on all the time and doesn't cycle off then it may be an element problem, meaning that the oven can't reach the temperature setting desired. If the oven indicator light goes off after a while and then cycles on and off then the thermostat is working correctly but the temperature may not be hot enough. You may have to purchase a small oven thermometer and check the oven temperature against the thermometer to get a better idea of what the problem is.
Hello. If your stove is manufactured by Omega Appliances, it appears that they no longer produce it. That said I can speak to your heating element issue. When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the
bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may
be burned out.
You may get fooled into thinking it's working, because the oven
is hot inside. But many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the
preheat and bake cycles. So the food may be getting heated only by the broil
element, which causes poor baking results. If the bake element is burned out, replacing it should solve
the problem. Otherwise, you need to further troubleshoot the oven's electrical
system to locate the defective wire or component.When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it
could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat
sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of
the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not
heat correctly.If the thermostat bulb is not dislodged, it's likely that the
thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. Electronic ovens with a digital display use a sensor to monitor
oven temperature. To solve temperature problems for these models, you may need
to replace the sensor. On some digital-display models, you can calibrate the
temperature using the key pad. See your operator's manual for details.
Ovens without a digital display often use a mechanical system
for controlling temperature. On many of these units, you can remove the
thermostat knob and adjust the knob itself to more accurately represent the
actual setting of the thermostat. If, when you remove the knob, there's a screw on the back of it
with a small calibration plate, you can loosen the screw, adjust the plate, then
tighten the screw again. If the knob isn't adjustable, and the oven temperature
is off by more than 30 to 40 degrees, you need to replace the thermostat to
solve the problem.

Cooking is determined by 3 things so let's look at what they are and what they do.
The Fan Oven Element - This is very much the same as a light bulb only instead of giving off light it gives off heat. Like a light that is switched On or Off by a wall switch, the Element is switched On or Off by a Thermostat according to the temperature required. In short if the element fails your oven will be cold.
The Fan & Motor - This sucks the air in through the centre mesh and circulates it around the Element and pushes the heated air out of the top, bottom and sides of the back-plate. Fan ovens cannot heat properly if the fan is not running OR if the fan runs too slowly as the motor starts to fail.
The Thermostat. - This is basically an On/Off Switch that responds to the temperature in the oven. If The Fan is running correctly and you are achieving some temperature in the oven, then the fault will be with the Thermostat.
I hope this Helps - Terry

consealed bake means that the bake element on the bottom had a metal plate above it to make it easier to clean and to allow you to use the lower racks without burning the bottom of your food. To use, you want to make sure that the oven temperature that you set has been reached before putting in your food to be cooked. You also should put the racks one notch lower than you normally would. If you do this, you should have no problems with your food cooking unevenly.
