How old is the appliance? Is this a new problem?
Does it seem to get better the longer the oven is on?
Allow me just a few minutes to explain how that sensor works, it will help so we can work toward a solution.
The oven sensor circuit is a resistance circuit. The sensor is just a big resistor that changes electrical resistance with temperature. As the temperature rises, so does the resistance. So, if the control gets a higher resistance, it interprets that to be a higher temperature and react accordingly. So, anything that affects the resistance in that circuit is suspect, including connections, wiring harnesses, etc. A pinched wire, a very bent or coiled wire, poor connection at the sensor or the control, etc can all cause issues with that circuit which will affect the temperature. So, we first need to determine if the issue is sensor related or related to a connection issue. Do you have a meter to perform any electrical testing with?
I would agree, nice find! Please allow me just a few minutes to prepare some information for you, thank you!
The oven sensor is number 253 in the diagram at the link below. Is this what you are seeing?
Look in upper left corner, I don't think what you are seeing is the oven sensor. It should look like the picture below.
Can you take a picture of your oven interior?
