Major Appliances/Magic Chef Stove/Oven Heating problem



I have a Magic Chef, model number is 3127WTV and when I turn preheat the oven to a specific temperature it tends to have a mind of it own and heats to a much higher temp.  For example, I put some bagel bite pizzas in the oven after preheating it to 424 and about 10 min later I started to smell something burning and when I checked the oven my temperature gauge in the oven said over 600. Could the oven thermostat be the problem? And it this something a mechanically inclined husband can replace?

Hello Tammy,
         I tried to do some look-up on your unit to see the possiblee cause of the high temperature problem you are experiencing.  Turns out there were some production problems and I will need further information to figure out when category your unit falls into.  Does your unit have an electronic oven control or a mechanical thermostat to operate the oven?  Can you please supply me the first two digits of the serial number?  Thanks....

Waiting to hear from you,
Eric and Ann Campion
