Re: Electric Wall Oven
First thing to do would be to check (or call an electrician) to see if the electricity supply is still adequate. occasionally corrosion or rodents or similar can effect the voltage to the oven.
usually with this problem if it was the oven itself it could be the thermocouple - the device that tells the oven what temperature it is at - usually a small metal tube (sometimes with a bulbous part along it) that will stick through a hole in the oven wall somewhere (often near the top). If you can identify this thermocouple then just see if it has been somehow bent or pushed closer to where the heat enters the oven - sometimes these can be gently bent back and will usually have a clip to hold it in place.
Another route would be to contact their service reps direct on:
Hope it helps :)

it could be the oven temp sensor rod located near the top of the inside of the oven,or possibly the bake element has a hot spot on the element and can no longer pass enough current thru this spot to correctly heat to your settings a hot spot on the element will look discolored in this area
When baking or cooking common foods in your oven, it is important that the oven heats to the proper temperature. Otherwise, the food in your oven could become over- or undercooked. The electric ovens are able to be calibrated if only slightly off, however, if the temperature is 25 degrees off or more, you should replace the oven sensor. The oven sensor is the device in the oven the detects the temperature. The control board increases or decreases the oven temperature, depending on the oven sensor reading. Before calling a repair technician, attempt to calibrate your oven or change the oven sensor.
1 Turn on the oven and set the temperature to a medium-heat setting, such as 350 degrees.
2 Allow the oven to preheat and then open the door and insert the oven thermometer.
3 Allow the oven thermometer to remain in the oven for a few minutes and the look at the temperature reading, comparing it to the oven temperature setting.
4 Recalibrate the oven if the temperature is only slightly off, or replace the oven sensor if the temperature is greatly off, such as 25 degrees or more.
Calibrating the Oven
1 Turn off the oven to prior to calibrating. 2 Press and hold the "Bake" button until the calibration settings are displayed on the display.
3 Use the arrow buttons or "+" and "-" buttons to adjust the temperature the number of degrees that the oven is out of calibration.
4 Press the "Start" button to save the calibration settings.
Replacing the Oven Sensor
1 Unplug the oven from the wall or cut the power to the oven in your breaker panel.
2 Open the oven door and remove the oven racks.
3 Locate the oven sensor, located at the top-center of the rear oven wall.
4 Remove the mounting screw securing the oven sensor to the wall and then pull the oven sensor away from the wall.
5 Remove the cable connected to the terminal on the rear of the oven sensor and then discard the oven sensor.
6 Connect the cable to the terminal on the new oven sensor and then reposition the oven sensor and secure it using the mounting screw.
7 Replace the oven racks and then restore power to the oven.
