Now I'm starting to wonder if I got the oven sensors mixed up and put the one from the bad oven back in.
Pull it and check it.
If it measures 1080 it is probably OK.

If OK then odds are that the control board is bad.

Is there anything else it could possibly be? Would it be worth having a repair man check it out? Also, if it is the control board, where do I find a new one or am I expected to replace the wall ovens?

Thanks again.

Update:

Okay, the reason I was getting error codes is because I didn't have both sensors connected at the same time. I switched the sensors and tested them again and they are both definitely good as the one from the bad oven when placed in the good oven worked fine.

So now I just need to know how to replace the board or if I should call a repair man because there may be a much cheaper break that I am not going to pick up on before I purchase the board, assuming I can replace the control board.

Also, what is a limit switch? A repair person told me to check that. I'm assuming it is just another term for the thermostat overload that I already replaced.

Yes it is. Also they are called thermal fuses.

Below is the control board.Note that AppliancePartsPros will let you return the board if it does not fix your problem. Most places will not accept electrical returns. Please see their return policy

Thank you for all of your help denman! This has been a great learning experience for me. It really is fun to fix things yourself (assuming you are able to fix it)

I will let you know if the board fixes it and thank you for linking to the part and letting me know about ApplianceParts return policy. It may be awhile before I order the part for lack of $, but I will let you know if it fixes the problem when I do.

You are welcome.

I will keep my fingers crossed that we have diagnosed it correctly.

Okay, I have the control board and my oven is out of the wall, power off, and I can't figure out how the control panel comes off. I don't see any screws, so I'm assuming it just pops off, but don't want to break it. Any ideas?

Figured it out. Wow, it's not the control board. Guess I'm calling a repair man.

I had it all fixed. The repair guy said there was a loose fuse next to the control board causing the problem.
