Our Samsung Gas Range model #NX58H5600SS has an issue that seems to have just started with a fluctuating and inconsistent oven temperature. I placed the probe from my smoker grill in the oven and the temperature (set at 350° F) would rise to above 350 and below 350 and then back and forth. I've looked at the manual and I'm thinking that it might be the temperature sensor.
Any other thoughts on what might be going on? Thanks in advance.

Is this a gas or electric oven? A gas burner will cycle on & off and is normal. How many degrees over/under does it fluctuate?
I appreciate your reply but, in the subject line I mention that this is a gas, not electric, oven.
Anyway, since my post, I've determined that the temperature sensor for this model is defective.

I'm not seeing where I can close this post as resolved but, I've determined through some research and testing that the temperature sensor has gone bad.
