GE Gas Oven Temperature Erratic

My oven does not heat to the correct temperature. Usually it heats up more than I want it to (e.g. 350, and it goes to 425) I have a thermometer in the oven--which I know is accurate. The range top works perfect. Could it be the thermostat, and if so how do I get to it to replace? Or, what else could be wrong. Thank you.

Hello again Sue. Thanks for trying to post that model number. I did not find any information using that number that you posted. That appears to be a part number for a component or a document on the range. You should see a model number such as JGP307 . . . I recommend that you recheck the range for a model number and reply back if you can find one. Also, I recommend that you try to find that average temperature after the burner cycles at least 5 times as described above. The burner will cycle on and off and the temperature will normally overshoot and undershoot the actual set temperature by as much as 40 degrees. That is normal in most ranges. If you can determine that average temperature, then we may be able to adjust the control once you reply with that model number. Thanks.
