For a gas or electric stove with control knobs :

1) Get a oven temperature gauge from a hardware store or a department store for about $ 10 and put it in an oven set at 177 ° C (350 ° F).

2) Wait at least 15 minutes for the oven to warm up.

3) Take the oven temperature gauge out of the oven to see how much your oven is heating up.

4) If the temperature is not 177 ° C (350 ° F), you can unscrew the 2 screws behind the temperature control knob, on the stove, to adjust the " higher " or " lower " temparature, in the center of this knob.

5) Screw in the 2 screws, put the knob back in place, put the oven temperature gauge back in the oven, wait 15 minutes and this time, see the temperature of the oven.

6) You may need some small adjustments before the oven reaches the correct temperature : 177 ° C ( 350 ° F ) .
