Hi Gordon, my name is ***** ***** I will assist with your query today.

The most likely cause is a faulty thermostat, which is switching off the element before the oven gets to the desired temp.

So its not the controller, its the thermostat which can be found here, if you have a multi meter you can check this by removing the control panel and testing if its open or closed circuit when the oven gets to 140 degrees.
