Re: Oven wont heat up properly
This may be the thermostat control. I would find someone to check the resistance of the element with an ohm meter. It should read 15 to 20 ohms. Put the timer on manual first and try the oven, because it could be the timer. It would be ok to just replace the bottom oven element because most of the time it is a faulty element.

either the temp sensor probe in the oven cavity it open/shorted or way off scale and telling the control board the units up to the temp set point,theres a way to test these with an ohm-meter for resistance at certain temperature but i dont have the chart for that test,it may be inside the unit if you can locate it
This Conversion table is from the old Gas Mark scale
I'm thinking it should be right or at least pretty close.
You could also get a cheap ($5-7) oven thermometer from local grocery store.
Put it inside oven to check actual temp achieved.
Buy a oven thermometer to put inside the oven to check the accuracy of your oven temp setting. If the oven temp is not too far off from what your oven thermometer is reading, you can recalibrate the oven knob. Pull the knob off and look at the back. You can adjust the degrees approx +or - 20 degrees. If the temp is all over the place or just not heating up enough, then it's time to replace the oven thermostat, assuming the oven isn't too old or not worth fixing. Douglas
