Question and Answers

Q:

My oven temperature is about 100 degree's too hot.

A:

A oven that runs 100 degrees too hot would raise more concerns than just ruining dinner. The expert will review this model to respond, but I did locate and attach a good article on how to recalibrate your oven that may help. I attached to the link below if you would like to check it out. I also added the scheduling link to Sears Home Services, if it turns out a technician is needed. I hope this information helps.

A:

The oven temperature can be adjusted 35 degrees up or down if needed but not 100 degrees. If it's heating up 100 degrees higher than what is the oven control is set for then it may have a faulty oven temperature sensor probe or possibly a faulty oven control. The oven sensor is located inside the oven cavity, attached to the rear wall of the cavity. As the oven temperature increases, the resistance of the oven sensor increases. The resistance is measured by the electronic control to determine the oven temperature.

To Access Oven Sensor:

1 Disconnect the appliance from power source before servicing.

2 Open oven door and remove two (2) screws securing sensor to oven cavity. Gently pull through cavity wall.

3 Disconnect the oven sensor at the connector and remove/replace as necessary. 4 Reattach the connector and reassemble.

To check oven sensor:

1 Access sensor wires as outlined under sensor removal.

2 Set meter to RX1000 Scale.

3 At 100 degrees the oven sensor should measure approximately 1143 Ohms.

If the oven temperature sensor measures at approximately 1143 Ohms then the sensor is Okay. Next, reconnect the sensor and access the sensor connection where it connects to the control board and disconnect it. NOTE: Disconnect the power supply before accessing the control board. Re-measure the resistance across the two lead and it should measure the same. If it measures the same and the oven is 100 degrees too hot, I would have to assume the oven control is faulty.

I highly recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your range.

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 .
