Hello, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.
Sorry your son is having problems with his wall oven. Ok so how the temperature sensor works is as the oven heats up the resistance of the sensor changes the control board monitors these resistances and converts those into a temperature and cycles the unit accordingly. A bad temperature sensor can cause different kinds of issues so yes it could be the sensor, it can be checked with an ohm meter, it should have roughly 1100 ohms at room temperature if so its good. If not its bad.
If the temperature sensor checks out ok then there is an issue with the control board and it needs to be replaced. The replacement parts are listed below.
Temperature Sensor WP8053344 - click here
The control board is no longer being manufactured for that model and there is not an available substitution for it so the only you can do if it's the board is to send it in to company and have it repaired/rebuilt and shipped back to you. Below is a link to a company that you can send the board in to and have it repaired - click here for more information
