I've a NEFF oven B15P52S3GB. Temp displayed frequently drops

This answer was rated:

I've a NEFF oven B15P52S3GB. Temp displayed frequently drops to 160 despite setting 180 for example. You can hear the element switch on and as it does so the displayed temp drops to 160. Is this likely to be the PTC probe failing?
JA: How old is your Neff oven?
Customer: 5 years
JA: How long has this been going on with your Neff oven? What have you tried so far?
Customer: just seen over the last 6 months. Not tried anything else yet
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: not that I know of
