My oven does not heat up. The oven only gets to about 160 and that takes about 2 hours. Any thoughts?

I cannot see the thermal limiter. The back is off and I've searched the whole backplane. How far above the terminal block is it? 6 inches, 12 inches? more? I know it should be there but I can't see it.

Thank you for answering my question yesterday about trying to locate the thermal limiter switch. I have already taken the back off the stove three times and have serched to find the switch location with no results.It apparently is not where the drawing shows it. On my model, is it possible the switch is in a different location - or - could my model have a different type of switch or fuse or protector to look for? PS - This problem all started when I replaced my burnt out bake element(purchased from your company). After I installed it, neither the bake or broiler element would heat up - leading me to believe leading me to believe I had a blown fuse or a bad thermal limiter (per your drawing and phone contacts for help) Thanks so much for any help you can give me!!!!

I am looking for the thermal limiter switch part #4097237 your diagram is not specific enough on the exact location. Another questioner asked the same thing but the answer refered them back to the same drawing which is not at that location on my stove. Is there another drawing or should I look for another part/location. Thanks for any help you can give me.

my oven bake light flashes, if you reset the oven it goes back to normal baking temp. Is it the thermal limiter or the temp probe the control unit is new that is the reason for the replacement.

In response to my above-asked question - sensor read at 1086 ohms, and the thermal limiter as well as both bake and broil elements all showed good conductivity. After reconnecting everything, the oven heats normally again, must've been an open connection somewhere. Thanks for the help, I'd definitely advise checking/reconnecting things before giving up!

The control panel works fine, but the oven just never stops heating/getting hot. The broiler element stays on, regardless of the temperature set point. I haven't gotten a multimeter to check the temp. sensor yet, but am thinking its either that or the thermostat. Any thoughts?

1 by 1 the functions on the keypad began to fail until now there is no functionality to the oven or warming drawer or the warming burner on the stove. Wondering if the touchpad control is bad or maybe something else. Thanks
