the two buttons that raise or lowewr the selevted oven tempreture . will no make the oven hotter than 260 degrees. I should be able to get the oven to 500 degree when I select broil. This will only go to 260 aqnd then I get the ending sounding beeps. The same ap[plies when I select Bake. No matter what I do I cannot go over 260 degrees and many things require higher settings
