Hi and Welcome to Just Answer,


Ok, let's take a look at this;


It sounds like your thermostat may be shorting out, then every now and then it thinks you are using the oven so it turn on... That would be my first thought

Reply to Michael L....JA Appliance Repairman's Post: Would a bad themostat also cause it to switch from bake to broil? This appliance is a little over 2 years old and has a disgital display, would the thermostat cause it to do this as well?

Since it is digital, then the controls would be a controlled through a panel of Circuits which could allow it to do a few weird things. But this would be a good starting point in your search to repair this
