Product Description

This is a temperature sensor for a range. The sensor is what detects the temperature inside the oven and is often replaced when the oven is having heating issues. Please note that the wire connector may be different from the original; if this applies to your part, cut the quick connect and wire together with porcelain wire nuts. For this DIY repair, you will need a Number 2 Phillips or Number 2 square-head screwdriver and possibly wire strippers. Make sure to disconnect the power before installing this part. You will need to pull the range from the cabinet to gain access to this part from the back of the unit.

Kenmore Elite Dual Fuel Range. Large oven does not go to desired temperature. Heating element is fine. I have been recommended to replace the oven sensor (820208). The lights, timer, and clock on the control still function. The small oven and top burners still function. The question is seems is the Control Panel communicating with another part to work properly? Or will replacing the sensor solve my problem? Thanks Mike
For model number 790.5503

Oven Not heating, already tried replacing element, but still doesn’t heat. Is the problem the heat sensor or control panel? How do I test the heat sensor probe?
For model number PLEB30S8CCC
Hello Maureen, thank you for writing. Testing the temperature sensor probe on your oven is easy. With the sensor at room temperature, measure the resistance between the two prongs at the end of the sensor connector. The resistance of the sensor should read approximately 1080 – 1090 ohms at room temperature. You can also test the elements for continuity to be sure they are both functioning. If the sensor and elements are tested and are functioning correctly the electronic control board would be the issue. If you need help placing an order, customer service is open 7 days a week. Please feel free to give us a call. We look forward to hearing from you.

Hello- My oven will reach it's set temp, but not retain heat. In "convect" mode it's fine. I'm leaning towards a defective temp sensor or heating element?
For model number FPMC2785KFA
Hi Peter, thank you for your inquiry. According to our research, the issue is probably with the temperature sensor and you may need to replace it with part number FIX820208. We hope this solves your problem!

Oven not heating to the set temperature
Suspected sensor based on above problem. The biggest problem was not knowing how hard it would be to get the built-in oven from its slot. Once it moved an inch, it was easy. The sensor inside the oven is a little hard to access because of the oven door. I would recommend a magnetic screw driver to make it easy to hold the sensor screws and allow reaching in the oven with one hand.

Oven cuts off. Shows F2 problem
Remove old temperature probe and install new one. Used ceramic nuts to twist wires together. Drop in range. So slide back into place. Very simple procedure. So far, working great.

Oven over heating
Part arrived very quickly and when I looked at it, I hesitated wondering if I could do it and if that was, in fact, the correct part to solve the problem. Did not have to pull the range out and it went real fast & was very easy to install. I researched how to replace this particular part on the internet. Went great and it solved my problem. My husband was surprised it was done when he came home from work. Thank you!
