We carry replacement parts, repair parts and accessories for 1 Preway Range models
You rely on your Preway range to help you turn out perfect brownies, delicious meat loaf and crisp, tasty pizzas. If the oven suddenly has problems reaching the correct temperature or isn't browning properly, you want to fix the problem right away. Consult these troubleshooting tips to figure out what the issue is and get started on repairs.
If your baking isn't coming out properly because the oven is too hot, or if it's taking too long because the oven isn't hot enough, you may be seeing a problem with the temperature sensor probe. This is one of the stove repair parts responsible for setting the temperature. In some ranges, you may see an error code on the control board if this part fails, making it easy to know what part you need to fix the problem.
In your electric range, the bake element is the tube running around the perimeter of the bottom of the oven, and the broil element is the corresponding tube at the top. You may see visible breakage or damage to these range parts. Replace them if they're not heating up correctly.
While the temperature sensor probe is busy detecting the actual temperature of your oven, the thermostat is the part that controls that temperature, turning the bake and broil elements on to reach the correct temperature and turning them off once that temperature is detected. To replace a defective thermostat, or for other gas and electric range DIY repair help, give Sears PartsDirect a call.
