There are so many reasons due to which the oven is not getting hot as given below:
Most modern gas ovens and many broilers use a "glow-bar" style of igniter that glows red-hot to ignite the gas. If the igniter doesn't reach the proper temperature, the gas valve won't open. You may need to replace the igniter.
When the food you're baking is done on top but not on the bottom--or when baking just takes far too long to finish--the bake element may be burned out.
Many electric ovens use the broil element, too, during the pr-eheat 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.
When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, it could be one of several different things. First check to see if the thermostat sensing bulb has come loose from its holder. It could be lying on the floor of the oven or resting on the heating element. This would cause the oven to not heat correctly.
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.
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.
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.
Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

GE wall oven jk95550f1ss When set for 400degress, my pro oven thermonitor registers 375 degrees

If you are certain your oven thermometer is accurate and the oven thermostat is electronic there might be a calibration adjustment a service engineer could make.

375 does err on the safe side. An oven is not an industrial furnace and so being built down to a price usually has certain quirks - hot parts and cooler parts and housewives (and others) usually take great pride in "knowing" their own ovens just as a shooter knows his rifle and will soon unconsciously begin to compensate for a sight that is "off".

Can you calibrate OV310E temperature,oven says its at 375 degrees but its only at 340,changed probe still the same. checked with oven thermometer

oven thermostats are not exact in operation and every oven is different in insulation qualities
all cooks have to get to know the oven temp settings from the dialed setting
check that the door seal is good and the door is properly adjusted
of course you can always get a technician out to see if the elements are working to capacity

I have a Kenmore model 911.4658816 and the oven does keep a accurate temp. if set to 200 degrees for example it may only go to 180 or so. baking does not workout as items are always uncooked in the middle....

@00 or 180, does not spoil cooking. If that is your only problem, then set oven to 220 or 230 with your thermostat in the oven. Then compare the reading in the oven to the one on the control panel.
You can then set the stat on the control panel to higher or lower, to compensate for the difference.
A new stat might not make that much difference as other issues might be involved.

GE JKS06 won't heat up past 200

Could be that main oven stat is faulty, and also there is a possibility that the thermal overheat stat is coming in sometimes caused by poor ventilation.

Also there is sometimes a secondary element fitted to cookers which is not always obvious.
More investigation is needed.
