The oven preheats fine, but after preheat doesn't always stay at temperature. The display still shows the set temp though. Yesterday, I smoked a pork butt on my outside smoker and then wrapped the butt and put it in the over at 250 to tenderize. I had an external thermometer on it and noticed the temperature actually start to decline. When I opened the oven it seemed cooler, so I restarted it and it had cooled to 150. Same thing happened again. Preheated fine, but I came back a half hour later and it had started to cool again. This issue has happened occasionally for many years, but recently seems like it's getting worse. With Thanksgiving next week I need to figure out what's going on.

Thanks Jake. Wife now saying works OK on convection, but not sure that makes sense. She doesn't want me to mess with it, but I'll scope it out further. If easy to install I'll probably do it.
