Major Appliances/Gas oven does not reach selected temp on bake


My Maytag gas oven MGS5870ADC does not bake at the selected temp. It says it reached the temp but if you cancel and then restart it is usually 100-150* below set temp. Broil is fine. Is it most likely the temp sensor? Is that an easy part to replace?

Put an actual thermometer in the oven.  set to 300 degrees and then when it says it is there, tell me what the actual temp is.  

Waiting to hear from you,
Eric and Ann Campion
