I would imagine this is the thermostat inside the oven starting to play up. Most of them are easily replaced by a competent DIY person. If however you don't feel up to it you can get them replaced by your local applinace shop. They don't cost a lot of money to buy and can usually be changed in about 30mins or so.

You should check the RTD to verify it is the proper resistance. You can measure the resistance using an ohm meter. The RTD is the metal rod in the upper corner of the oven housing. The resistance can very from make and model so I would suggest looking up the RTD for your particular stove and get the datasheet. This will tell you what the resistance reading should be at room temperature. Also do not touch the RTD when measuring. These are sensitive devices, changes in temperature even if just body heat will affect the reading.

The oven temperature sensor is going bad. It is a small rod that is about 6 inches long and can be found in the top back of the oven. You can remove it by first taking off the back panel of the oven and then it is pretty self explanatory from there. You can order a new one from repairclinic.com or from a local shop. Just have your model number when searching and you should find.
Let me know how this works out for you.

Hello. If you have an electric oven, you will need to have the voltage checked to see where the problem is. Usually, when the oven needs 240 volts to operate correctly you will find only about 120 volts which of course is only half of what you should be consuming. The cause of that could be a bad heating element in the oven, a circuit breaker where one leg of the power has gone bad, or the wiring/outlet. To check these things requires a voltage meter.

When the item takes far too long, you probably have a weak bake igniter. Often, you need to replace the igniter, but you may want to troubleshoot the oven's electrical system further to more precisely locate the defect. When the temperature is consistent but too high or too low, the oven thermostat or sensor is either mis-calibrated or defective. If your oven uses an electronic temperature-regulating device, you may have an electric sensor in the oven instead of a mechanical thermostat. If the oven temperature is off by 30 to 40 degrees in this type of unit, you must replace the sensor. On many units with a mechanical thermostat, 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.
