Kenmore stove temp regulation

Model # 790 94203310 electric stove. The temp was low by 30 ░when set to 350░ using an oven thermometer so I adjusted the temp to +30░ and it seemed fine. However, then when set to 400░, it measured at 430. Is this a sensor issue or control board issue? Or how can I tell?

That would be indicative of a sensor issue. It could be the sensor itself, the plug where it connects or the connector at the control board. Usually I'll change the sensor first and then go from there.
