Question and Answers


My oven temperature does not keep what I set it to. It gets too hot.


The oven temperature sensor probe should read about 1090 ohms at room temperature. The temperature/resistance chart of that component is provided in the first image below.

If the sensor resistance is way off, replacing that component should fix your problem.

If the resistance measured directly at the sensor is okay, I recommend that you unplug the range and check the resistance directly from the wires that connect to the control board. The second image shows a wiring diagram for your range. The sensor wires are normally purple. Make sure that the sensor probe is plugged in when you check the resistance through this circuit from the control board. If the resistance of the sensor circuit is okay, then you may need to replace the control board to fix this problem.

NOTE: If the temperature is off by only 35 degrees or less, then you can use the procedure in the third image to adjust the oven temperature using the control.

Be sure that you accurately measure the oven temperature. Let the oven preheat and cycle on and off at least 5 times before measuring oven temperature with an accurate thermometer. Use an overage temperature over a 10 minute period to determine actual oven temperature. If the temperature is off by significantly more than 35 degrees, then you will need to replace the control board. You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website. Be sure that you unplug the range before accessing internal components to replace the part.
