I'm sure this is frustrating. There are going to be 2 things that would potentially cause this issue. The first thing I would do is check the oven sensor. You should ge 1075 ohms at room temperature. If it is more than 10% off, then I would replace it. More likely however, you have a fused relay on your control board. This is something that would necessitate replacement of the board. I will give you sources for both of these in case you need them. Here is the sensor. Here is the board. Good luck with this!
