So first, the oven is supposed to overshoot and then come back down, but it sounds like it's not overshooting so the temperature is just 20-30 degrees off. You'll need to offset your temperature by 20 or 30 degrees to compensate.

To adjust the oven temperature:

1. Press SETUP.

2. Use right Quickset pad to scroll to TEMP ADJUST.

3. Select TEMP ADJUST using the left Quickset pad.

4. Enter the desired temperature change using the number pads.

5. Use the Quickset pads to select "+/-" to indicate an increase or decrease in temperature. The temperature change is displayed at the top of the window.

6. Press ENTER or wait 3 seconds to accept the change.

7. Press SETUP to exit the menu. The oven temperature does not need to be readjusted if there is a power failure or interruption. Broiling and cleaning temperatures cannot be adjusted.

I hope I have earned a 5 star rating. We are on the honor system here. Please remember to rate my service by selecting a star at the top or bottom of the screen before you leave today and reply back here letting me know with a rating of 1-5 stars (5 being the best).
