What is the temperature censer used for
For model number PGS920SEF4SS
Hi Laura, Thank you for your inquiry. On modern electronic control ranges, the oven temperature sensor is the part that monitors the oven temperature and signals the electronic control to turn the elements on and off. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

When i turn on the oven it never reaches temperature. The indicator remains on preheat. I hear the control clicking as usual like it is trying to reach temperature buts never does.
For model number JBP22BK4CT
Hello Dallas, thank you for your question. If the unit is not reaching temperature, and remains on preheat. I would recommend replacing the temperature sensor first. This is the most likely issue when a unit doesn't heat to the selected temperature. Temperature Sensor Kit part number WB23X5340 would be the part to order. Please enter the part number into the site for current price and availability. Good luck with your repair!

Our oven doesn’t seem to bake evenly and the temp is varying from the set point about +\-25 degrees fahrenheit. I checked the temp sensor at room temp and the meter displayed 1089 ohms. Any suggestions on what else i can check? Bottom element appears to be ok.
For model number 91195589990
Hello Jeremy, thank you for your question. If the sensor, and elements are testing within range the issue could be the electronic control board. I would suggest re-testing the sensor, and perhaps taking the plunge and replacing that part as its less expensive than the board, and usually if the board is bad the oven won't heat at all. However, the thermostat might be working intermittently and is ultimately sending mixed signals to the board. I hope this helps!

When baking corn bread, bottom will burn before top will brown, and middle will not be done however the broiler does work when its being used what do you think might be the problem
For model number RB757BH5WH
Hi Craig, Thank you for the question. When the oven has an uneven temperature it is most likley the oven temperature sensor.Testing the temperature sensor probe on your oven is easy. With the sensor at room temperature, measure the resistance between the two prongs at the end of the sensor connector. The resistance of the sensor should read approximately 1080 – 1090 ohms at room temperature. Hope this helps!

The oven temperature is accurate and cooks well. However, in the clean cycle it goes into over temp alarm after about forty five minutes. What would be the likely cause?
For model number JTP27BA1BB
Hello Bill, Thank you for the question. You can try testing the sensor. Testing the temperature sensor probe on your oven is easy. With the sensor at room temperature, measure the resistance between the two prongs at the end of the sensor connector. The resistance of the sensor should read approximately 1080 – 1090 ohms at room temperature. If the sensor is good, you may need to replace the control board, PartSelect Number PS238571. Thank you for your inquiry, good luck with this repair!

I have located the part number on a Kenmore website for my Kenmore elite double oven. Before i order the part on your site i am wondering if you can tell me if you think the probe oven temp part number 316217002 could be the solution to my oven powering off after a few minutes of reaching temperature? Thanks
For model number c970-600133
Hello Tracy, thank you for your question. Yes, that does sound like it could be the sensor. If the sensor is replaced and the issue continues, the electronic board assembly could be the problem. I hope this helps!

Our oven is about 18 years old and when the oven is set to say 400, it only heats up to around 300 and beeps saying it is at temperature. I'm thinking it is the temperature control kit but i'm only guessing; any suggestions?
For model number JTP15B0A2BB
Hi David, Thank you for your question. If your oven is not staying at the temperature you have selected, then the issue is likely with the temperature sensor. You will need to check the sensor, the wiring between the sensor and the electronic control board, the electronic control board and both the bake and broil elements in the oven with a multimeter to see which part is causing the issue. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

When i turn the oven on, say 350 degrees and start...the element does not heat up, but the broiler element begins to get hot. why is this happening? is my baking element bad? or is this something else? thank you for your help.
For model number RB757WH4WW
Hello Ed, thank you for your inquiry. If your bake element is not heating, then it is most likely faulty or damaged. We recommend replacing it. For your model RB757WH4WW, the bake element is part number PS249238. I hope this information helps!

I finished cooking and shut the oven off and several hours later I go back to the kitchen and the oven is on, but the knobs still show it being turned off Any suggestions ?
For model number 911.94492992
Hi Kevin, Thank you for your question. If the oven is still on after you turn it off, there is likely an issue with the electronic clock control board, part number PS238550. Check the board for signs of damage or burn marks and if it shows any of these signs, you will need to replace it. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

    When baking at temps > 400 the oven would beep with an error code F5 and shut off
    I downloaded the installaion manual from the web for this model. First htings first, I located the circuit breaker for the oven and turned it off. Removed the lower trim piece from the bottom, next lifted the oven door off its hinges and set it to the side. I then wrapped a couple of small towels around the hinges for the door as per the manual (the hinges can pinch a finger). I then removed the four screws which secured the oven into the cabinet. Next I slid the oven forward allowing me access to the rear. I removed the pieces from the rear to gain access to the sensors connector, and unpl;ugged the sensor. Went around to the front and unscrewed the 2 screws securing the sensor and removed it. I then installed the new sensor, replaced the rear covers, slid the oven back into the cabinet, secured the four screws, snapped on the lower trim, remounted the oven door, and turned the breaker on. Oven working fine now.

    The oven does not keep adequate temperature.
    Pull the range out from the wall to access the rear of the unit. Turn off power to the range by unplugging from the wall or turning off the breaker.
    Remove the large back cover from the oven portion of the range. Locate the two small wires and connector which is located between the two connections for the broiler heating element. Unplug the small connector.
    Open the oven door and remove the screw that holds the temperature sensor in place between the broiler heating elements on the inside of the oven. Gently pull the sensor and the wire connector through the hole and discard.
    Feed the new connector and wire through the hole from the inside of the oven. Attach the sensor to the oven wall with the screw.
    Go to the back of the unit and make sure that no insulation has gotten into the oven space. Re-route the new wire being careful not to let it touch the contacts for the broiler heating element. Reconnect the wires to the connector and replace the back cover of the oven.
    Plug in the range or turn on the circuit breaker. Slide the range back into place and re-level the unit. Test the oven to make sure the temperature is accurate and will maintain temperature.
