Oven would turn on with thermostat set to off.

My wife and I did the repair. The most difficult part was finding the correct replacement part. The store where we bought the stove lied about what part was needed, which cost us a lot of online time before we found the part. UNPLUG THE STOVE or turn off the breaker. We removed the back of the stove, which is two or three pieces, completely. The thermostat is part of the single oven control. This job inclludes replacing the oven thermocouple (temperature sensor) which is a small copper tube about a foot long which is inside the oven itself,held in two spring clips on the left upper side near the front. You install the new thermocouple, which comes with and is attached to, the replacement thermostat from the back and top of the stove. Unplug the top burner elements and remove them, along with the drip pans. Remove the single screw that holds the connector for each burner to the stove top. Then lift the front of the stove top and remove it. Remove the screws holding the inner top of the stove. It has a tab on each side that slides under the flange of each side of the stove, so you must remove all the screws from the back of one side so you can swing it out a bit. Then you can remove the inner top, Under that is insulation covering the top of the oven. Remove the old thermocuple. It is easier to cut it instead of fishing it all the way back. Just be careful to note how it is installed. Silde the new thermocouple in from the thermostat, under the insulation and through the small hole in the top of the oven box and clip it in place. The clips are flimsy so support them as you remove and install the part. Hold the new thermostat right next to the old one BEFORE you disconnect any wires. Unplug each wire in turn and plug it into the new thermostat before going on to the next wire. Watch for the short wire that connects from the thermostat to the oven indicator light. Then remove the old thermostat and put in the new one. Reverse the steps of the disassembly process to get it all back together. Be sure the insulation holds the thermocouple in the center of the hole mentioned above. That's it. Be careful of the sheet metal parts of the stove; Crosley didn't bother to deburr them and they can give you a nasty cut. Reconnect the power and test. If it all works, maybe you can talk your wife into baking something.

CustomerDan from Sacramento CA

Oven would not turn off and temp was way off.

What seemed to be a relativly eacy job turned into a partial disaseembly of the top of the oven/stove just so the old thermocouple could be removed and the new inserted into the oven. Installing the control itself was a piece of cake. Well at least the whole oven/stove is now as clean as when it was new. Was no sense in putting it back dirty in all the nooks and crannies.
