If I set my oven to to a temperature, it heats to about 100 degrees and quickly "dings" as if the temperature was reached. Thinking that the problem might be the temperature probe, I pulled it out to measure the resistance. However, it is spliced rather than plugged into the connecting wires. Does this indicate that it has been previously replaced?
ANSWER Wayne, If the splice was with a couple of porcelain wire nuts, then Yes, the temp sensor probe has most likely been replaced at one time or another.That would be the best place to start as well, Check the resistance of the sensor (1050 to 100 ohms resistance at room temperature) and check to make sure the spliced wires and porcelain wire nuts are tight.
