Our oven started turning on randomly by itself with the knob in the off position. I removed the upper back plate from the stove and took a look at the electronic assembly which looked fine, but there must have been a bad switch in there somewhere. I ordered the KRC electric to replace the whole assembly (I know it's not cheap, but it's a better deal than a repairman!).

Repair couldn't have been simpler: Remove the four individual wires and make note their orientation, remove the plug with multiple wires, remove the oven knob (up front), remove 4 screws holding the whole assembly in place. Once the old assembly is out remove the sticker plate and place it on the new KRC electric, screw back in, put all the wires and the knob back on, put the back upper plate back on, that's it! Took me 10 minutes tops...including turning off the breaker and pulling/pushing the oven into place. Oven no longer turns on by itself!!

Sorry I don't have the model number of the oven available, but it popped right up with a part search.
