Controlling a Force 10 Stove

My stove is driving me nuts. It's an old Force 10. I have to use a match to light the oven/burners. That is not a problem. The real issue is trying to use the oven. Here are the issues -

1. Internal temperature as read by the stove's guage is 100 degrees off of the actual temperature inside the oven. (reads 300 when stove is at 400 degrees)

2. When in use for long cooking periods, the burner will go out and I have to re-light.

3. Impossible to hold at a single temperature.

I'm wondering if there is a fix to these problems - short of getting a new stove?

Re: Controlling a Force 10 Stove

Sounds like a broken oven thermostat.

Why not just replace it? While you are at it you can get a new spark box and leave the matches in the drawer.

Parts are readily available for every one I have run across.
