Customer Question

I have a Kitchenaid model kdrp407h5s4 range. About once every few months, while baking the oven overheats, the door locks, and it incinerates what we're baking. I've seen a few proposed solutions, and wondered which one you prefer.
Thanks

Scott, I would start by testing/replacing the sensor. At room temp it should read 1080 ohms. It's either the board or sensor. I would suspect the sensor. The sensor is also way cheaper.
