Product Description

Oven Temperature Sensor Specifications

The temperature sensor detects the temperature within the oven cavity. If there is a limited amount of heat, it is not heating evenly, or the oven will not start, this might indicate that your temperature sensor requires a replacement. If you are working with your oven this part is found on the right side when facing the back of the oven. This part is can be found in a range, wall oven, and microwave-oven. You will need to remove the panel located on the back of the oven, unplug the sensor, remove the screw, and pull the sensor out. The new one slides into place.

Cut off power at fuse panel. pulled stove out from wall went behind stove removed back panels in area of sensor that I could see from the front side, inside oven. Located sensor from rear & unpluged senser from wiring bundle reached inside oven & removed screws from sensor. Pulled sensor out & threaded wire through hole. Took old & new sensors to bench in shop. Plug on new not the same as old. Had to change plug Cut and stripped wires. Wire is very small, need to use a good stripper. Twisted wire together & soldered connection, used shrink wrap to insulate wire. Took part inside and reinstalled in reverse order. Used 1/4 inch nutdriver on total job start to finish.

No heat when turning oven on.
Started by replacing element which was clearly broken. Still no heat. So then I changed the oven sensor. Was disappointed that when I received the sensor I had to cut and splice the connector that was on it with the old one that came off the old sensor. Did that and still no heat so I had to buy a new clock/timer. Went to another store for that because of the connector not being the right type and there was no picture of the clock/timer like the other website. Overall ok, normall troubleshooting steps, just wish I didn't have to cut and splice the connector on the new sensor I purchased from here.

Oven would kick off after preheating to temp.
Sensor very accessible. Pull off the back panel, disconect the sensor and slide out from back of oven. The original plug was cut off the sensor, as well as the new one to get the proper connector type on the new sensor. Soldered and heat shrink, and presto we had our new sensor ready for install. Install was about 5 minutes which included putting the back panel on the range. Pretty easy and works like new. Total time for project was about 20 minutes.

oven temp was not right
We removed the old part and replaced it then when warming the oven all of a sudden there was a loud noise and something went and so we called a repair man which I guess we should of done in the first place. Now he has ordered a part that cost 170 soo that is my story don't try to repair if you don't have experience.

heating element was cracked, oven would not heat.
I used a small wrench, It was very easy to remove. once I removed the screws and disconnected the plugs from heating element then had to remove the back cover of stove so i could plug in new element. but was very easy. I am a single woman and was worried that it would be difficult to change. it only took me 20 minutes.
