Question about Ovens
My mom has an old oven as described. The oven is +25 degrees F. The knob does not appear to adjust (no screws on its backside). Looking inside the stem after removing the knob, it appears that there is an obstruction (white, hard substance) so I cannot tell if there is an adjusting screw in that location. The model information has worn off the plate. Thanks in advance.
If the knob is consistently 25 degrees off from the indicated temperature the simplest and cheapest fix is to make a new indicator mark on the stove 25 degrees from the original.or some knobs have a glued on ring with the temperature numbers on them . Removing the ring and regluing it at the correct position could also work. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: element needs replacing
You need to remove the outer rear panel of oven to gain access to heater on this model.
The element is attached to a panel at the rear of oven , which when removed gives you access to the element..
It cann ot be done from inside the oven.
Plz rate my solution.

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.
