Thank you for your question.

I can understand your problem with the control not responding the way the calibration procedure says�s it should.

If you are following the instructions exactly the way it states in the manual then I would have to conclude that the Oven control is bad.

Have you tried to set the temperature 25 degrees higher to make sure it will achieve 350?

If you are not getting any error codes then I would think that the oven temperature sensor is ok.

This part however is much cheaper than the control. The part number for the sensor is; 316217001 and you can purchase it from; Sears Parts Direct .

I have included the instructions below just incase the one in your manual is different than the one I have.

But it sounds like you are doing the calibration correctly.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.

Oven temps can be hard to get close sometimes. The newer ones like yours, digital, can be a lot easier if done right. It sounds like you might be missing a step but not sure. I think there is an option on what the temp differential can be. Meaning a temp +/- from the actual set temp. I use a digital temp scanner that has a probe that goes inside the oven while calibrating. The dial thermometers are slow to respond to setting changes and you may make a change that the thermometer is not seeing yet. Also I have made a lot of service calls due to temps not right in oven. You would not beleive how many oven thermometers I find that are bad or not reading properly. You may want to have a appliance tech look at it and hopefully he will have a digital test meter. It is possible that your clock module is bad but I would rule out every thing else first. Your right the modules are spendy! If it will run within a few degrees +/- I wouldn't go to the exspense of changing it out at this time.

Q:

How come my gas stove door won't stay completely shut?

A:

When an appliance doesn't work properly or gives out it can be very disappointing because you don't really know what is wrong with it or you might even have to buy a whole different appliance. A suggestion I have for you while you are waiting on your response from an expert is visiting the Sears Home Services website. I have attached the link below if you are interested in viewing while waiting on your response from an expert. Hope this helps, good luck

This type of problem is normally caused by a problem with the door hinge assembly in the oven door or the receptacles on the oven frame. Carefully examine the receptacles on the oven frame to see if they are bent or damaged. You may need to remove the oven door to check the receptacles. The image below shows how to remove the oven door.

If the receptacles are okay, then you will likely need to replace the hinges in the oven door to fix this problem. You can order a kit from the Sears PartsDirect website that has both hinges and both receptacles. The part number for this kit is 5304445976. Here is a direct link: Hinge Kit .

The image below provides some direction on opening the oven door to access the hinges. Your door may be slightly different but the basic procedure is about the same. This information may help you replace the hinges in the door if necessary.

This is a fairly advanced repair. 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 .

If you need more help, reply with additional details and we will assist you further.
