Product Description

This temperature sensor detects the temperature within the oven cavity. This oven temperature sensor, for ranges, works together with the oven control board to measure and regulate the oven temperature. The sensor detects the temperature in the oven cavity. If the following symptoms occur, replacing the temperature sensor could be the solution: Little or no heat when baking, oven not heating evenly, oven will not start, and/or oven is overheating. Often, if the sensor is defective, the oven temperature will fluctuate and be inaccurate by more than 50 degrees. The tool needed for this replacement is a #2 square head screwdriver or a #2 Philips screwdriver. Remember to unplug the range before installing the part.

    Intermittently warm (not hot) oven recepies
    I watched the install video, gathered up basic tools (#2 + screwdriver, flashlight, and cleaning rags. Turned off circuit breaker, placed some heavy cardboard under front base feet (no floor scratches) and slowly slid range out enough to gain access to rear panel cover. Removed all necessary screws and slid panel away to gain access to thermistor. Detached wiring connector, removed the two screws slid old thermistor out, new one in, tighten thermistor mounting screws and attached wiring connector. Slide oven back in place, turn on circuit breaker, set clock, and bake test batch of muffins. Worked like new. Celebrated with muffins and coffee - easy peasy!
