Oven works, however when we turn it on the minimum set temperature is 350 degrees and the down arrow button will not reduce the set point to a lower temperature. the up arrow button works fine. Any ideas?

Thanks Jake, I was afraid of that. I had to replace it a number of years ago for another reason [don't remember specifics] and it was hard to find then. Guess we'll live with it like we have for quite a while. Not buying another range until I absolutely have to.

Thanks

Jake, would you happen to know what size micro switch Kenmore uses? It appears to be 6x6x5mm with 2 pins, but most of what I found with 2 pins are for breadboards, so the pins are flat [0.6mmx0.3mm] not round. Thought if I soldered in a new switch that should fix it.
Thanks

No sorry I don't. I've never tried to do that before.
