I provided the wiring schematic and the wiring diagram for this range in the first two images below.

The black wire that you are describing that is hardwired into the thermostat is the capillary tube for the temperature sensor on the thermostat. It is not shown on the wiring diagram. It is an integral part of the thermostat. The new thermostat (part WB20K10026) will have that sensor permanently attached to it as shown in the 4th image.

That temperature sensor normally is mounted as shown in the third image. Your oven should only have one sensor since it does not have the self clean feature but the location should be about the same. You will probably need to remove the back panel and pull the old sensor out through the back of the oven to remove it. The new sensor on your replacement thermostat will need to be positioned in the same manner as the existing sensor.

NOTE: Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing internal components.

These tips should help you properly replace the thermostat in this range.

If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Q:

Which parts are recommended to replace after my range had a power surge?

A:

On something like this you will need a volt/ohm meter to make some checks with before determining what parts have failed.

Either one of the oven elements shorting out could have caused the thermostat to fail along with a power surge. This depends on if you were using the range at the time of the power surge.

The thermostat part number is WB20K10026, $57.99. The wiring harness will have to be repaired; this model does not have a replacement wiring harness available.

If you have a meter & decide to perform some volt/ohm checks please get back with us on this. If you have a meter & know how to read a wiring diagram I have provided the wiring & tech information in the images below.

Remember to always use extreme caution when working with live voltage & to disconnect power before attempting repairs.
