Hi my name isXXXXX can help you. Could I please have the model number of your unit.
Without knowing what the model number is, it is difficult to tell what exactly the problem is. It could be your selector switch, or the thermostat, or both.
the Kenmore site shows this model with a sensor but nothing called a thermostat
The site also reads that the part is on the diagram but it isn't so I hope the package shows install directions or that you can tell me where it is.
WB27K5127 This is the oven control for your unit. The contacts inside the control have welded closed and supply power to your oven continously.
replacing the sensor will not fix your problem the control is not shutting off.
The price of this part is $275.99!!
I'm just going to get a new stove. Any advice?
Go with a whirlpool or Maytag. Stay away from GE which is the company that made your range. Frigidaire is ok, I also recommend staying away from self cleaning or not using that feature, they cause more problems then they are worth.
What if I decide to go with a gas range? Would you stick with those same manufacturers?
Yes they are the best built and best designed on the market. Roper and Crosley are made by them, they are the cheaper off shoots with less bells and whistles.
You have been a huge help. Thank you!!
