Look for a small screw in the center of the shaft that holds the oven knob. Use a flashlight to see it. A very small turn on this screw will change the temp 25 degrees so turn in small amounts and test. 1/2 turn at a time or smaller.

the range has two thermostats one for each oven located under the oven knobs. put a meat thermometer in the oven and adjust the thermostat screw with a small flat screwdriver untill the oven turns off at the correct knob temp.
registered on the thermometer.
then adjust the knob screw on the back of the knob to match that temp setting.
clockwise is hotter counterclockwise is cooler
Take your temp knob off and look in the center of the stem and you should find a small set screw. Using a small precision screwdriver, turn the screw until you see the light come on. (You won't have to turn it far.) Turn it a little at a time, maybe a 1/16 of a turn. Leave your thermometer in the oven with the door closed and at or near the temp probe that is in the oven. This way, you are getting a true reading.
Is it a gas or electric if it is gas take knob off usally in front where it says 150 degrees and up and if you look down the shaft you will see a little screw turn it counter clockwise to turn oven down if it is electric take knob off where it says 150 /250/etc... and look behind the knob in your hand it has 2 screws to adjust the oven temp.
This is a simple fix as long as the oven is heating properly and the only problem is that the temp seems higher than what the temperature control knob indicates...
Purchase an inexpensive oven thermometer from the hardware store and place it in the center of the oven. Set the temperature control knob to 350 degrees F.
Check the temperature indicated on the thermometer in the oven after 20 minutes. If it's not within 5 degrees of 350, you'll need to adjust the oven's temperature control.
Turn the oven off.
Pull off the temperature control knob. You can usually pull it off by hand, pry it off with a thin screwdriver, or slide a piece of cord up behind it and pull.
Note which kind of temperature control knob you have. There are two types: The first has a screw in the shaft of the knob; the second has an adjustment dial on the back of the knob.
Adjust the temperature with the first type by turning the screw in the shaft with a screwdriver. Turn it clockwise to lower the temperature; turn it counterclockwise to raise the temperature. Turn the screw just a little bit in the appropriate direction.
Adjust the temperature with the second type of knob by turning the dial on the back of the knob. (This dial is held in place with a screw or a clip that will need to be removed.) Raise the temperature setting by turning the dial counterclockwise; lower it by turning the dial clockwise. The notches are typically in 5 or 10-degree increments.
Test the oven temperature again.
Repeat until you're in the right temperature range.
Electric ovens are calibrated behind the temp knob. Pull the knob straight off of the shaft and look at the back of the knob. There should be a metal slide with a scale and a little set screw. Loosen the screw and move the slide in the direction indicated for your needs.
does it have a knob in front or is it a panel to operate bake broil ? if it has a oven knob take it off and look in the back of the knob you adjust it there if it is electric if it is gas you need to use a small screw driver in the stem where the knob goes on and turn a little screw in there to ajust temperture turn clockwize to adjust temp up
