My oven has stopped operating after having no known issues. The broiler still works as does the the stove top burners. I suspect the sensor. I put an ohm meter on it and I get no reading at 200 setting. At 20k I got a reading of 1.08. Applying heat and the number increased to 2.4.
Sensor, Erc(alpha 375
Item Number: AP4041331
Manufacturer's Number: 31954301 (31954301)

Answer Hello Mark,
If the broiler works, I would not suspect the temperature sensor. I would suspect the bake ignitor. At this point I normally list the part number but, since the part is model specific, and no model number is listed, I cannot list the part number for you. You can either re-post with a model number, or you can call our toll free number and give the model number to one of our representatives and they will be happy to look the part number up for you.
Oven temp not accurate. Most of the time it is 100-150 degrees less than what I set it at. Could the oven sensor be faulty? or is it something else?
Answer Jerry, How accurate was your temperature test, If you're temperature is more than 35 degrees off, in either direction, the sensor will not solve the issue, you'll need a new control(ERC) 77001200. The oven temp sensor 31954301 should be tested for 1050 to 1100 ohms resistance at room temperature to varify it works properly, or consider both parts if you wish. Good Luck and Thanks
