Hello. My name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you with your appliance question today. Please wait a few moments while I review your question.
To be clear, are you saying that you set the oven to 350 but it won't go higher than 285, or the oven won't even let you set it above 285?
OK perfect, so that means your bake element has failed or the relay on your control board is bad and not sending power to the bake element. During preheat cycle the oven will turn on the broil element and such to preheat quicker at 30% which is why it will raise to 285 but not get any higher. You will need to pull the oven out, unplug it, and remove the back sheet metal panel to access the terminals on the bake element. Test continuity through the element with a multimeter and if you have no continuity through the element---replace the element. If you do have continuity then you need a new control board.
