With the exception of one burner the rest of the burners will only heat up to a warm temp. This includes the oven, I had it set to broil and it would only get up to about 120 degrees. Also the "hot survice light will only come occassionaly.

Unplug the range. I would open the control console and locate the BAKE/BROIL terminals on the Oven control. I would reverse the wires,plug the range in and try again. Sounds to me like someone has changed out a part and wired it wrong.
If it is convection bake you have to turn the temp down (25 degrees or so) that is listed in the recipe.
The broil setting is not used to bake because it operates differently from the bake setting. So, don't go to the broil setting at all. The element for bake is under the floor of the oven. You have not indicated whether it is gas or electric, but both of these can have issues with the burner or element.
If you are baking on the correct setting and the oven is heating from the bottom, not the top, this can be caused by hot spots that are created by elements/burners.
to check, look under the floor of the oven. Turn the bake heat up to high and see if the flame is uneven. For an electric oven, the color of the element should be evenly red, no brown spots.
If you are using an oven thermometer, move the thermometer to the spot in the oven that seems to be burning things the most.
broiler on top of oven?? if so it might have a second ignitor that is working. Most units now with gas have an electric ignitor to start gas ovens. What they do is send electric current through an electric "wire", when enough current is flowing through wire to open gas valve the wire is hot enough to ignite the gas flowing over it. When you turn on the oven look at the burner and after 1 imute or so you should be able to see an Orange glow in bottom of oven if not I'm sure its the ignitor, if glows then probably oven valve is bad. I'd guess ignitor because most oven makers use this ignitor to mantain a warming temp (around 100 degree's) so since your display doesnt register over inital "start" temp of 75, i'd bet ingitor not coming on at all
If the broiler burner is the only burner, then it should come on. If there are two burners, chances are the broiler burner comes on to get the oven heated up more quickly. Once near temperature, the other burner maintains temperature.
Sounds like a heating element. Same thing happend to my oven. You can find them around 50-60 dollars. Veryy easy to install, just remove a couple of screws and remove old element and put in new one. Make sure you shut off power to oven firstg of course.
Sir, I think the top oelement is for broiling ONLY. It should not turn on when baking. The clicking may be the oven heating up.
How far apart were the oven temp instrument and the digital?
Don't expect them to match...they are inaccurate.
1. Heat water until it boils. Place digital therm in boiling water until it comes up to 212deg. If it is not at 212 in boiling water, record the error.(this gives a rough calibration to the digital)
2 Turn on oven, set to 350 deg, place digital therm on rack. Wait until oven reaches 350 (on stove) and read the digital. Note the difference between the two
It could be the sensor. Remove the sensor and check for 1 to 1.1K ohms. at room temp. If that's not the problem it may be the oven solenoid on the burner. You can also have a problem with the door lock making when it shouldn't check that also.
