Question about Frigidaire FGB24S5A Gas Single Oven
My Kenmore electric oven is now reading up to fifty degrees too hot (shows 400 but is only 350 inside). Is this maybe just an oven probe issue or is there a thermostat that connects to the probe that could be the problem. Sears sells the probe for $25 (#316233900) but does not list a thermostat. I don't want to get the wrong part
Yes, that is the probe that sends info to the controller.
If it's not bad, then the controller is, but normally it's the probe.
Check that the controller has not been incorrectly calibrated before you change the probe out, although most do not allow a swing of more than 15-20 degrees. Yours may allow more though.
I am guessing you measured the actual temperature, to the set point temperature, with a know good thermometer.
