Samsung oven is not getting to right temperature. I have replaced the temp probe, therm fuse, and bottom bake element but oven says it is at 450 but thermometer in oven is at 350. I also notice when I turn the oven off and bake on to bake setting temp 450, the oven starts to reheat and shows a temperature of 361. Any ideas? thanks

I finally figured out the issue. To check if the bottom element was working (since it is hidden), I disconnected the top element and turned the over on to 350. Never heated up. Confirmed bottom element was bad. Inspected bottom element and it looked bad so replaced. Performed same test, and bottom element was still not working. Thought it might be Control Board but when inspecting the wires, found one of them was burnt and had disconnected one of the wires going to bottom element. Cut the burned wire out, reconnected the wires, and oven is working perfectly now.
