Question Replacing oven sensor
Model Number: 911.3548813   Brand: Kenmore   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I've got what I think is the original range/oven in my house, so it's around 15 years old. We replaced the igniter last fall. We plan to update our appliances in the next year or so, which means I want to keep repair costs to a minimum.

The oven has been acting up, showing both F2 & F3 codes. Sleuthing on the internet has me pretty confident the sensor needs replacing. I tried reading the resistance on it (without removing it from the oven) and I think it's low.

I'm planning to order a replacement sensor and installing it myself. My hope is to just pull the wire through and unplug it. In a perfect world, right?

My questions is this - if I do have to pull the unit out of the cabinet to access the back, how hard is that? This is a drop-in gas range, so I think accessing the back is a bit more involved.

Thanks!

In most cases it is not possible to pull the plug through the hole.

You can pull the wires as much as possible, cut them and attach the new sensor, using the wire nuts.

In my opinion this is not the best solution, because poor connection will cause problems later.

Even if it's not easy, I would recommend to remove the range and do everything from the back.
Also I would recommend to eliminate the plug and install the new sensor, using the wire nuts. The quick disconnect plug could cause a loose connection.

Thanks for your reply. Any tips on how to remove the range? I would like to do-it-myself, but I have no idea how involved a project that is.

Every cabinet is pretty unique and you have to figure out by yourself how to do it right.

I guess I'll only find out by trying! Off to order the part. Thanks.

I'm confused, in the third paragraph, you stat to not cut and use wire nuts, "may cause problems later". But in Paragraph four, you stated "to eliminate the plug and install the new sensor, using the wire nuts". This seems to be contradictory to the earlier statement. Please explain

Tim,

When I said "this is not the best solution", I meant if you do it from inside of the oven. If you do it from the back of the oven then hardwire the oven sensor is the best solution.
