My Repair & Advice Featured Story
I was able to find the model number on the lower right hand side of the range/oven, a GE True Temp. I Googled it to find parts, and thought I had found the correct sensor, but was very pleased that the ApplianceParts sire suggested I check compatability again before the order. I would have ordered the wrong sensor kit other wise. I DID get the correct one order. It arrived on time.
The tricky part was get the old sensor out without having to pull the oven/range combo out form the wall over out hardwood floors. So I just unscrewed it form inside the oven, using a mini-lantern for light. The darn thing "clicks" together male-female, and it was hard to get it unclicked in the tight space, even after gently pulling the sensor out as far as I could (it only pulls so far).
Once unclicked, the "male" part in my hand (the sensor), I had to be certain that the other piece didn't fall back through the hole in the back of the over, forcing me to pull the oven out and unscrew the back . . . so my wife got a small piece of duct tape which I wadded onto the end of the "female" part making it large enough NOT to fall back through the hole. Worked like a charm.
Once the new sensor arrived, I pulled out the mini lantern, and went to work. I pulled off the tape slowly, grabbing the piece immediately to keep it from slipping back through hole, and snapped on the new sensor. This took maybe two minutes in total.
So far (fingers crossed) things are working well two days in to the repair. Saved me a bunch of money by doing it myself, and I am not a handy guy on these things.
