Are you still needing help?

The oven will not preheat correctly. I need to set the heat at 450, for example to get the temp to rise to 400 something and then adjust the heat using the control panel from there.
I have replaced the heat sensor and the control panel and this has not helped.

How are you determining what the oven temp is in the oven?

An oven Thermometer
Appliance Technician: Sean F., Customer Service replied 2 years ago

Let me start off and say those oven thermometer are very slow getting to temp.

So when setting the temp to 350 and the oven says it is preheated in about 10 mins. And you look at the thermometer it is usually 50-75 deg to low.

What I like you to do is to turn your oven to 350 and wait 20 mins even tho the oven says it preheated after about 10 mins. Let me know what happens after the 20 mins please.

it gets really red- I can broil just fine
Appliance Technician: Sean F., Customer Service replied 2 years ago

O.K. There is nothing else that could be bad. And you said that you replaced the sensor and control board and the elements get really red. I would say to go buy a new thermometer and see if it is bad.

You could have a bad part that you replaced. The sensor should ohm out 1100 ohm at room temp give or take 10% if it don't replace it again. If it is good return the control board for a new one.

Make sure the door is closing all the way so your not losing heat.
