Question about Ovens
The problem is likely a defective temperature probe, first check the following.
Try disconnecting power for two minutes, disconnect power cord or trip the circuit breaker. That will reset the electronics.
Check if the problem happens with both broiling and baking. If the problem is only with one of the two functions, then one of the elements (electric oven), or a valve coil or igniter (gas oven) may be faulty and causing the problem.
If the problem occurs with both baking and broiling, then it is usually the sensor probe. The temperature sensor is located inside the oven cavity, and held by one or two screws. The sensor can be tested reading Ohms at its terminal with a multimeter. A bad sensor is often open at room temp (it reads infinite Ohms). A good sensor will read about 1KOhms at room.
