You do not state if this is in centigrade or fahrenheit.
If it is centigrade, then it will not reach more than this if it is a domestic oven, if fahrenheit, then it should get hotter, so I would suspect a faulty oven thermostat as being the cause of the problem

Why won't the fan switch of after the oven is switch off


Not sure what fan your question refers to, but the fan that removes the heat from above the oven is controlled by a thermostat. It normally does not come on until the air temperature above the oven space is about 300 degrees and does not turn off until it is below 300 degrees.

New oven won't heat


1.Check sensor connection. 2.Measure sensor resistance (1080 Ohms at 70 degrees F. Add 2 Ohms per degree F). 3.If resistance is not valid, replace sensor. 4.If sensor resistance and connections are good, then check for welded-closed relays on the control.

Here is the sensor to order if it is bad.

Hotpoint oven won't heat above 250 degrees broiler works fine as well as the stove top


either its the oven sensor rod located at the top of the ovens cavity,or your bake element could be getting a hot spot which is when it gets a discolored spot in the element and can no longer pass sufficient current to heat the oven past 250 degrees

Model: JDS8850AAS -- Oven won't preheat above 150


Hello,

The problem beleive it or not is that the bake ignitor is weak ,and it is not drawing the proper amprage to open the gas valve.If you have a amp meter access the wires to the bake ignitor(usually behind the storage drawer) and check for 3.3-3.6 amps when oven is set to bake by clamping the meter around ONE wire wire of ignitor make sure only one wire,either one and not both.
if amp draw less than 3.3-3.6 amps replace bake ignitor. I know it seems improbable that if the ignotor comes on that it could be the problem.Professional appliance technicians who would charge a average of $250.00 to repair your oven,have found when the ignitor comes on yet the oven won't heat that a weak ignitor is the cause 100% of the time

Hope this helps
