Product Description

Long Oven Sensor Specifications

This long oven sensor is also commonly known as a temperature sensor. It is designed for use with ovens and ranges. It is similar to a thermostat; it measures and regulates the internal temperature of your oven cavity. There is an adapter at one end, a probe at the other, and they are connected by an insulated wire. The probe is approximately 7 inches long. You can test the sensor with a multi-meter for functionality. You need to check the model-specific manual to determine what the proper resistance is for your specific appliance. This oven sensor comes with two wire harness adapters and a set of instructions.

Oven sensor caused cooling fan to run continuously. Had to flip breaker to get it to turn off..
Left oven off. Located sensor in pdf manual. Unscrewed mount, pulled sensor out to access connector. Disconnected old sensor, checked continuity(resistance) on ohms with multimeter. No continuity; connected new sensor, screwed mount back into place, turned on oven and baked cookies to check operation & it worked perfectly.

my oven would not heat to proper temp
I slide the range out and unplugged it from the outlet. I removed the back of the oven ( 8 screws ) using a cordless drill and phillips bit then with a phillips screwdriver I removed the oven sensor (2 screws) then I installed the new sensor , reinstalled the oven back , plugged the range in , slide it back into place and that was it. This repair took about 10 mins and the oven works perfectly. Thanks !

Cooling fan runs fault code displayed
Removed the two screws holding the sensor to the rear oven wall. pulled out sensor wire. It was caught on other wires behind the oven. removed the three screws holding the 8" inspection plate in the center of the rear panel. Carefully move the insulation and reach in to grasp the back end of the sensor wire. Once free from the snag it easily pulls out with the sensor just as stated in the video. using the appropriate adaptor it was easy to re-asseble and and attach to the oven wall. Replace the rear panel with the three screws and it was done

"F3" error message and no oven heat
Unplugged the range, removed screws holding the old sensor. When I pulled it out, the wire connecting to the sensor was completely broken through,therefore I could not just pull the wire to get to the connector. Unscrewed one side of back panel to access the connector. Pushed the connector and wire of the new sensor through the hole ( and behind the insulation), disconnected the old sensor and connected the new one. Re screwed the new connector in place plus rescrewed the back panel. Plugged the range in and - Viola! Everything now works like a charm and I have my oven back. Easy-Peasy. Oh - I am an older female with very limited DYI experience. I just saved myself $650.00!

Oven would over heat and produce a F2 error code on the display. It would not turn off or cool down until I switched the circuit breaker off.
I switched the oven sensor easily enough, but it did not remedy the problem, so we are in the process of replacing the oven since it's about 20 yrs. old.

Oven would not hold temperature, not turn on, and would shut off during use.
Extremely simple repair to make. Move stove away from wall and disconnect power. Remove the oven racks. Remove the rear sheet metal panel covering the wiring harnesses. Caution: Sharp edges and corners on sheet metal.Sensor is located in upper left corner on rear oven wall. Using a long-shafted #2 Philips screwdriver, remove the two Philips head screws and gently pull the sensor 1" away from the oven wall. At this point, it will help to have an assist from someone while you are behind the range. Have the assistant gently tug on the sensor while you watch for wires moving on the rear of the range. After locating the sensor wires, gently disconnect the plastic connector clip. Note: plastic connectors become brittle with age and exposure to heat Move to front of range and gently remove sensor from rear wall by pulling the wiring through the oven wall. Before inserting the new sensor wire through the oven wall, "dry fit" the wiring connectors to see that the new sensor is a correct connection. Make connection, and secure the sensor to the rear oven wall with the two screws. Install racks, reinstall rear sheet metal panel, and connect the power. Set the oven baking temperature to a moderately low temp, 300 - 350 deg. to test the new sensor.

Oven erratic, not heating correctly, timer beeper sounding
The video indicating •unscrew old sensor, •pull wiring, •unplug old sensor, and •plug in replacement was good until I pulled the old one and saw wire nuts behind the small square hole! After some research, I learned that the nuts COULD come through that small hole with use of needle nose pliers. One of the wire nuts had the edges pinched off (chipped) in the process. Then I learned about ceramic wire nuts, which I'd never previously encountered. Very important if you don't want to melt your nuts! I cut and stripped the end of a disconnect plug to the stove wiring and now I have a plug in place; which, hopefully, I'll never need to use.

F5 fault code kept appearing
I installed the new oven sensor but the problem continued. So I ordered a new relay board and installed it. Still no luck. So I pulled the new board back out and started trouble shooting it using my electronic background. I discovered the new board was using a pin for L2 that had no exit on the backplane, so I removed it and installed it where I believed it should go. Reinstalled the power relay board and presto. My oven is working lie a champ. Louis

While cooking, i received a f-3 code, hit cancel couple of times and got f-7, hit cancel again and oven shut down. I then reset temp to 400 and in a few minutes received f-3 again, from what i see it is the oven temperature sensor. How do i know which one it is i don't see any part numbers in my manual.
For model number CWE4800ACB
PartSelect logo
Hello Keith, thank you for contacting us. The "F3" fault code is indicating an oven temperature sensor failure or a temperature sensor circuit failure. The oven temperature sensor could be open or shorted. It will need to be disconnected and tested with an ohm meter. At normal room temperature, the oven temperature sensor should have a resistance of 1050-1100 ohms. If it is not close to this it would need to be replaced. The f7 error code usually indicates a problem with the main control board. You may just want to try the oven sensor first, the main control board for your model has been discontinued. Hope this helps!

The upper oven bake element did not heat up. I replaced the element and I still have the same problem. What other items can I troubleshoot for?
For model number MER6751AAW
PartSelect logo
Hi Matt, Thank you for your question. There are only a few parts that could cause an issue like this. The element itself (which you have already checked), the oven sensor, or the electronic control board. You can test your oven sensor with a multi meter to make sure that it is working. It should read 1000 - 1100 ohms of resistance when testing it at room temperature. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Broiler starts on its own on lower oven then overheats f2 code is this just the sensor or another part that causes this
For model number JJW9630AAW
PartSelect logo
Hi Dale, Thank you for the great question. With the F2 Error code it is recommended the Sensor to be replaced. Before you order it is a good idea to make sure the harness on the sensor is securely attached,if it comes lose it can cause this error as well. Hope this helps!

The lower oven isn't preheating or holding an oven temperature properly. It begins to heat, even to the point of red-hot, but loses it around 200 degrees. I can set the broiler to bring the temp up, switch to bake and see that the temp reads correctly, then it drops off. I haven't seen any error codes at all.
For model number jdr8895aas

Hello Richard, Thank you for your inquiry. We would recommend checking the following parts to fix your issue: the long oven sensor, the temperature sensor, the bake element, and the terminal block. You can test the parts with a multimeter. If you are unfamiliar with how a multimeter functions, there are YouTube videos available to assist you. Hope this helps!

Cant set the clock on oven, red number and letter show up 5a6
For model number GGE350LWS00
PartSelect logo
Hello Karl, thank you for contacting us. Your oven is actually showing the error code SAB which is for sabbath mode. You can hold the clock button for 5-10 seconds and it should take it out of sabbath mode, if not you may have to wait 72 hours for it to go off by itself. Hope this helps!

Oven won't heat at all broil setting won't work either
For model number Cwe4800acb

Hi Robert, Sorry to hear the oven is not heating. Sometimes the issue can be caused by either the bake or broil elements or it may be the long oven sensor. One way to check is with an Ohms/Multi Meter. I hope this helps. Have a great day!

Every thing works but when using upper or lower oven temp. Readings do not light up on screen.
For model number MER6772BAW
PartSelect logo
Hi Fred, Thank you for your question. If the oven is not heating correctly, then the issue is likely with the oven sensor, sometimes called the oven thermostat, and you will need to check it with a multimeter. When testing the sensor with a multimeter, the sensor should be tested at room temperature and it should be unplugged from the oven. You will need to measure the resistance between the two prongs at the end of the sensor connector. Replace the oven sensor if the reading is less than 900 Ohms or more than 1200 Ohms. If this part turns out to be fine, you will need to check the electronic control board, the elements and the wiring between them to see which parts are causing the issue. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

Oven temp is actually lower than the display setting by a marginal amount. I’m assuming i have a bad temp sensor, just wondering which sensor i needed. Also if u could me the resistance reading at room temp for the sensor. I saw it is supposed to be around 1082
For model number Mer6772bas

Hello Keith, thank you for your question. The upper oven sensor is part number WP7430P044-60 and the lower oven sensor is part number 12001656. At normal room temperature, the oven temperature sensor should have a resistance of 1050-1100 ohms. If it is not close to this it would need to be replaced. I hope this helps!

Hi Jeff, Thank you for your inquiry. If the oven is not shutting off, you will need to check the long oven sensor, the electronic control board to see which one is causing the issue. To do this you will need a multimeter. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!
