- Approx. 4"L.
- Approx. 2.5" capillary wires.
Failure Symptoms: Uneven baking / Lack of temperature control.
How to test: The sensor can be tested by using a multimeter. As temperature rises, the resistance measurement also rises. Oven temperature problems can be caused by other things, but this is one of the more common causes.
Repair Tip: The oven sensor varies its resistance to electrical current as the temperature varies. If the oven doesn't bake evenly, the oven sensor resistance might be incorrect.
For small variations, you may be able to re-calibrate the resistance with the control board. Check the owners manual for directions on how to do this on your model.
