Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

If the oven temperature sensor measures the correct Ohm resistance and the bake and broil elements will work, I would have to suspect a faulty electronic oven control or the oven temperature sensor connections at the oven control is not making a good connection.

The oven control/clock assembly is part #316557207. The 316418307 is now subbing over to part number 316557207. You will also need to order and replace the clock overlay part #316419309. The original clock overlay will not stick on the clock/oven control once it has been peeled off the old clock.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

I read on another forum that the clock overlay for Kenmore ranges can be reused. From what you said above, this is not the case because it wont re-stick to the new EOC. Is there another way this overlay can be reused? Is there an adhesive that can be used safely for this purpose? I ordered the EOC but not the overlay because I was under the impression it could be reused. Please advise. thanks..

Graig: If the old overlay will not stick and adhere to the new EOC, I do not know of any adhesive that I can recommend. The adhesive would have to be resistant and non- flammable. I also recommend replacing the overlay when replacing the EOC.

Joey, I replaced the oven control/clock assembly, part #316557207, and it did not resolve the problem. The oven is still not heating to the proper temperature. I have been living with it but would still like to resolve the problem. Both burners definitely get hot - I verified that with a visual inspection. Is there anything else it could be besides the oven temperature sensor? Could that still be bad even though it seems OK based on the resistance measurement? Craig, I did reuse the clock overlay. when I pulled it off enough of the glue remained on it to adhere to the new EOC. It is also held in place around the outside by the panel.

Mark; Make certain that the bake and broil elements will heat. Both bake and broil elements are used during pre-heat and bake. It is also not uncommon for the control to signal it has reached pre-heat temperature but in reality, the range has not met the set temperature. When is signals it has reached the pre-heat temperature, it means it is safe to go ahead and put the food in but it does not mean it has reached the set temperauture. I do not know what type of oven thermometer you're using but they are usually slow reacting. Leave the thermostat in for at least three cycles of the bake element and then compare the temps. There is only two things controlling the oven temperatures, the EOC and the oven temperature sensor. The oven sensor can be disconnected and measured for proper Ohm resistance. At room temperature, the oven temperature sensor should measure approximately 1100 Ohms.

Thanks, Joey. I removed the bottom oven panel so I could visually inspect both elements and saw them both get red hot. I understand about the time delays and have left the oven thermometer in the oven to keep track of the temp. I have allowed 10 extra minutes after the oven beeps signalling it is at temperature. The temp according to the thermometer is about 65 degrees cooler than what the EOC displays. I can get the oven to the proper temperature by setting the temp about 65 degrees hotter than I need. It takes a little longer to get to temp but it does get there. I measured the resistance of the sensor and thought it was about 1103 ohms at room temperature. Thank you for confirming that the only 2 components controlling the temp are the EOC and the sensor probe. I guess I'll try replacing the sensor.

Thank you for that info Mark. I suspected as much as I have seen posts and videos showing the overlay being reused. I have ordered the overlay just in case, but will attempt to reuse the original one, and then return the unused one if I am successful.

FYI You do NOT need to install a new overlay when replacing the clock/EOC. I was able to remove the overlay off the old EOC and reuse it. Just keep this in mind when purchasing replacement parts. Your results may vary.
