Question Oven temperature

I have a 2014 Rockwood 8265, purchased in April 2013. The stove is a Suburban model. We have never been able to get the oven to hold a temperature that is set on the control knob. We set the knob temp to 350 and the oven temp goes to over 400. If we set the temp at 250 it will give an oven temp of 350 to 375. Is there a way to adjust the oven temp so that it will be more accurate? Thanks for your help.

Best suggestion I could give would be to get a digital thermometer with a probe and manage it that way. Before long you will know that 100, is actually 225 and 225 is actually 350, and 350 is burnyoureyebrowsoff broil.

We could never get our first Suburban oven to regulate; but when a pyrex baking dish exploded in the oven shattering glass everywhere (temp must have been about 500 degrees) we had it replaced at last year's International Rally in Goshen. We also have a oven thermometer and use it regularly, no bad it doesn't help regulate the oven itself.

Now the "new" suburban oven shuts off; so you can't bake at all. We are not going to fiddle with the "fixes" that have been suggested on this forum (not wanting a gas leak or worse) we have put it on our repair list AGAIN for this International Rally.

Fingers crossed that the next oven works correctly.

Yes. We do this also.
