I set oven to bake 350 and turn on. The oven heats up to the preset and signals. The digital readout is 350. After several minutes I want to finish cooking with the convection feature at 350 so I turn the oven off, select convection 350 and start. You would think that since I turned it off at 350 it would start at 350, however, the digital readout now shows 328 and starts to heat up to 350. I dont think this is normal. Does anyone have the same problem and perhaps a solution?

Many newer ranges do not preheat to the full set temperature. Some manufactures claim it isn't necessary so when it beeps to indicate preheat is done, it may not be at the full set temperature. (I do not know how the control is programmed on that exact model.)

Have you tried actually testing the oven temperature with a thermometer?
