Most Frequent Causes for Oven temperature not accurate

Cause 1Bake Element

When the bake element is heating properly, it glows red hot. If the element does not glow red, this indicates that the element is not heating. Often, if the heating element has burned out, it will be visibly damaged. Inspect the heating element for holes or blisters. To determine if the bake element has burned out, use a multimeter to test the element for continuity. If the bake element does not have continuity, replace it.

Cause 3Temperature Control Thermostat

The temperature control thermostat monitors the temperature inside the oven and cycles on the heat when the oven temperature gets too low. If the temperature control thermostat is not calibrated correctly, it won't cycle on the heat at the proper time. As a result, the oven temperature might be too high or too low. Due to its complexity, the thermostat is very difficult to test.
