Does this temp sensor work for GE Profile double oven Model JTP55W0V2WW? Do I use the 1 sensor for the top and another for the lower oven?
Answer Hello Geoff! Yes, the sensor WB23X5340 is the correct replacement listed for your model. You will need one for the upper oven and one for the lower oven. Thanks!
How can I tell whether I need this part or a baking element? Thanks.
Answer Hello Melanie. You can test the sensor WB23X5340. It should read around 15 ohms at room temperature. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. Hope this helps. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
Doe's this control the temperature in the oven?
Answer Hello Rick. This senses the temperature and sends the reading to the main control, which in turn controls the temperature. Have a great day!
