Extruder doesn't show temp high enough but extruder is smoking

So I know that is probably a confusing title. Basically here is the issue. My bed is heating to the right temp. The extruder heats to a certain degree, but then seems to get stuck from anywhere from 220-230. From there as it sits at the temp I believe the extruder continues to heat to well over my starting temp of 247. It then starts smoking. A few times the Simplify 3D has read over 300 and then print will stop before it actually starts printing. Help please. I am not good at any of this stuff to start with and now its really frustrating. Someone said control panel and then I also heart Thermistor. I will replace whatever needs replaced, but I just need someone with more knowledge.
