Hot Point electric oven (R F725GOP3BG) no longer heats to

Customer Question

Hot Point electric oven (R F725GOP3BG) no longer heats to the set temperature. If set at 450 F it only reaches about 200 F! So far, I have replaced the bake heating element and the temperature sensor with NO improvement. All other functions are normal.
It therefore seems to me now that the heating element is not receiving a high enough voltage. Is this a possibility, can the voltage be adjusted?
Thank you very much for your consideration.

If you have replaced the sensor and the element and its getting 200 degrees then odds are the voltage is being dropped by a control board, let me have a look at your model give me a minute.

If they oven is simply staying on and not cutting off, and never reaching temperature and you have already replaced the bake element and the sensor , so we know those are good the only thing left that can cause that is

Part # ***** this is a link to the part at repair clinic but does not seem to be available the only other solution may to be is to send it in to one the repair services that rebuild the board for you. Here is a link to ebay where companies offer that service
