Should I order an "oven sensor assembly" if the temperature of my gas oven only reaches 100 degrees? Is that the part I need to order?
Answer Hello Nancy. Test for 3.2-3.6 volts AC at the gas safety valve with the igniter turned on. If the voltage is there, you have a bad safety valve. If the voltage is low, you have a weak igniter and the igniter will need to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
How are codes pulled up on an appliance?
Answer Hello Diner. This depends on the type of appliance you have. For the most part, when an appliance has an issue with a part, an error code will apper to tell you the issue.
The PF code comes on when cooking in the oven...sometimes it comes on and sometimes not.
Answer Hello Serge. Look for loose connections. If none are found, then the clock WB27K5068 is bad. This part has been permanently discontinued by the manufacturer and we don't know of any source or replacement for the part.
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.
My oven comes on and heats up but doesn't maintain the heat. Would that be a sensor issue?
Answer Hello Rob. You can test the sesor. At room temp, it should read around 1100 ohms and at 350° should read around 1650 ohms.
Causes for top oven not getting hot at all. The broil and bake both not getting hot and if you will be nice enough to tell me how old this oven is. The serial number is FL656883Q.
Answer Hello Brenda,
On the upper oven, this can be caused by a bad control board WB27K5123 or a bad temperature sensor WB21X5301. The control is more likely the issue since the control is designed to give a fault code should the temperature sensor fail.

My oven will not ignite. Does the oven sensor have anything to do with it?
Answer Hello John,
This is normally caused by a bad ignitor WB2X9154. The sensor WB21X5301 can only keep the unit from igniting if it is telling the control that the bake compartment is too hot already.
