Re: oven hotter at the back
You should always preheat oven to operating temperature before cooking anything.
Do not put too much in oven, leave plenty af space for good air circulation.
Do not place any reflective foil or the like on the bottom of oven or shelves, as this reflects heat, and you will get uneven cooking.
Make sure fan is working efficiently if it is fan assisted.

I see that you're having issues with your Frigidaire oven, and the heating element being red hot the entire time you were cooking no matter how much you turned the temperature down.
I suggest giving your appliance a hard reset. You will do this by either unplugging it or cutting the power off at the circuit breaker for at least 2-3 minutes. When power is restored to your oven, you will need to set the clock by entering in the time and pressing start. Preheat the oven, to whatever desired temperature, and if it is still running hotter than it should be, I suggest you contact your local authorized technician. I hope this is helpful.
So I understand you're staying
that the oven has a higher temperature in the front, is that correct? If so,
technically speaking that is very rare or not possible. I suggest to make sure
the pan is placed in the middle of the rack and not closer to the front or back.
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 the unit's
status has changed successfully. Thank you!
the oven sensor rod on the rear wall of the oven cavity is defective,remove screws holding it sometimes you can plug a new replacement sensor in from the front,if you can't then remove rear panel on the back of the oven to access the connector to replace it
Normally oven gets hot but just lukewarm externally(front and sides). Compare it when it was still new. If it is hotter than it was, then the insulation inside have deteriorated thru time. Have it check for possible insulation replacement Hope this will solve your problem. Don't forget to vote for me. Thanks.
Alot of the thermostats are adjustable and can be recalibrated but when they act like this, it is best to replace them. It is just a matter of time before it quit all together. Electronic units are some what different.
Let me know what you do and I'll give you a hand in getting it going.
well i had a service call like this one time almost drove me crazy lol so to try to help im going to tell you about it every thing checked out but oven would not cook right finnaly i took the gasline loose from the regulator and rust and trash had built up so heavy on the regulator screen it was restictin the flow of gas so when the contol demanded more gas it couldnt get it but it wouldnt set a fault code because nothing were wrong with the conterols
difficult to see what you have done here!
can you come back with some info:
do you have an earth trip fitted in your consumer unit?
how many wires are fitted to the element?
did you touch any other wiring except those connected to the element?
