Arrow Maytag electric oven not getting to temperature

I have a Maytag electric oven model MER5752BAS and it never gets up to the correct temperature. We have changed sensor and control board. Element was tested and said to be ok but does not light up all the way to end on either side. Should it?

Your element is working properly. It should not glow all the way to the ends.

Is the upper element working properly?

You say it doesn't get to "correct temperature". Does it just never get up to temperature? Is it ten degrees off from what you set?

Many electric ovens use the broil element to preheat and then shift to the oven element. You can watch for that to happen. You can also put the range in test mode and select the test mode. The pdf file at the bottom of the page is the tech sheet for your range. Lots of helpful info in it.

Quick test mode

I went by directions for the quick test where you hold cancel and broil for 3 to 5 seconds but it won’t work. The broiler just comes on. Also tried the diagnostic code display test where you hold more+ pad within 30 seconds of powering up and it doesn’t work.

Then you need to check the sensor resistance at the control board.
There is a connection in the back of the oven that could be a problem.
