ok on the digital display it says 340 degrees all the time? or just when you push the bake button?
Customer: replied 7 years ago.
When I push the bake button it set the temp below 340 it just displays the temp and that is is already that hot. If I set it above the 340 it will display it is 340 then will turn on heat, but, very quickly says it is 450 and then heat turns off and wili turn on as the oven cools, but, is off again quickly. Everthing else works fine on the stove. This is exactly what it was doing before we replaced the temperature probe.
