Magic Chef gas oven cools down

Hello All, I have a Magic Chef gas oven. I make biscuits every Saturday morning. The oven heats well to 350 and starts the baking but then the temperature drops during cooking to 200 and won't finish cooking. This just recently started happening. I have plenty of LP, so gas shortage isn't an issue. Top burners are fine. Any suggestions?

Certainly not an expert here, but to me based on your comments the problem it points to the thermostat (temp control) or maybe the thermocouple inside the oven.

I guess you have checked the flame and made sure it looks normal, right?

Thermostat controls the oven temp by controlling the main flame
As temp drops thermostat should respond by increasing the Main Flame size and then decrease it again when temp reaches set point

Thermocouple is usually heated by pilot flame so the milliamp generated by thermocouple keeps the gas control OPEN

What Model is this Magic Chef????

After this problem is solved, try placing a pizza stone in the oven during baking. It keeps heat more even during burner cycling.
