Hello, I read numerous posts about the oven and I think I've narrowed it down to the thermostat. I checked the elements and both have 1079 ohms. I can not find the thermostats to be able to check them. I looked in the manual and I took apart the oven in the back with no luck. The oven turns on but it doesn't display the correct temperature nor does it hold a certain temperature. It is much lower than it displays. The broiler works fine and the range does as well. The model number is 790.75503201.

Hi,

I checked the elements and both have 1079 ohms

That seems high for elements, normally approx 25-75 ohms for an oven element.

I can not find the thermostats to be able to check them.

Left side thermostat...

Oven temp sensor for the right side is still available...

Hi,

Jeff may have missed your last reply, that thermostat should be located in the back of your range.

Its #141 here:
