How to change a standard controlled oven temp:

Sometimes the temp ( 300-350-etc ) knob will have screws on the back of the knob, you can loosen these screws and adjust the knob to match the oven temp. Picture is here. Some oven controls have a hollow shaft, you will need a tiny straight screw drive to adjust the oven temp by changing the setting screw at the bottom of the hollow shaft.
