Easy To Install!

As always Sears delivered!! The part was installed in 15 mins and only required muscle to move the stove and a Phillips screwdriver to remove the part! Thank you Sears.

Correct temperature

My Kenmore oven is 18 years old. The connector prongs on this probe are flat and the insulated connector is a double square. My prongs are round with a square next to a 5 sided connector housing. I carefully ground and cut the connector to remove the wires. I then slightly bent the flat pins and forced them into the factory round female connection. The "more info" in the description page says it may take porcelain connectors. I wish that information was included on the item page. It would have been very easy and quick with the proper connector.

Exact part I needed

I replaced the temperature sensor. It worked to clear the F31 error I was getting on my Kenmore gas range/ oven.

Beats a new oven!

Awkward job rather than difficult but easier than repeated exasperation with previously tidied wiring.

New replacement

The sensor arrived very quick. However, when I went to replace it the connectors didn't match. It did give directions on the website on how to swap the connectors out, but I didn't really want to do that.

Connector Problem???

It looks like the same probe as the original. But the connector is different. I had to remove the connector from the new one and use the connector from the old probe. You should offer some options on the connectors. Maybe ship a couple of different ones so it would be a bit more simple.
