My kenmore oven will not keep temp.When 1st starting it starts fine and goes to desired temp. but when reaching temp. it shuts down will click to try to restart but will not what you have to do is shut it down crack door a little wait about 10-15 minutes depending on oven temp. and then restart if it restarts it will stay going if not you have to try again until you can keep it going.What is the problem?
Jake I unplugged oven and tried to get an ohm reading of my oven temp. sensor I get nothing could my oven work at all if this is correct reading?Do I have to take temp probe off oven to check I checked mine while still in just unplugged from male peice it goes into .Or do you reall think my problem lies with the bake burner igniter?Just checked it with two differant meters with it out and still get no reading could this be my problem?

Reason: adding to it
No, you just unplug the range first, then unsnap the little plastic connector that goes to the oven sensor in the back of your range, then do the ohm test from back there on the oven sensor side of that connector.
I did take the temp. probe out and checked it from the backside and get a reading of OL.Does this mean the probe is bad and could this be my problem?Like I said before if you crack the door wait about 10 minutes the oven will relight and keep the temp. usually.
