SOURCE: Gas oven not heating to temp
You more than likely have a defective oven sensor. For some reason the sensors tend to go after a few years of use. It is in the upper right or left hand corner and looks like a probe sticking through the inside back of the range. When you open the door you just look towards the top back left or right corner there are 2 screw securing it to the back. Gently pull it forward. You will see a couple of small wires feed into as you pull it in. On most you will see a plug in connector come through the hole if not you may have to just splice the new one in.

it means bake range over temperature.
have a technician check out the oven temp sensor. you may have a short in wiring or it may need to be replaced.
if problem still persists, replace the clock.

Here are two instances of when food "bakes poorly:"
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.
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.
