Hello sorry to hear you are having trouble, I'm Joel and will be glad to help you today.

You need to replace the temperature sensor in the oven. The sensor is the probe you see protruding out of the back wall of the oven, just remove the screws mounting it to the back wall of the oven pull it forward and unplug it from the wiring harness, then install the new one. The replacement sensor is listed below:

You answered my question! you did a good job. The only problem is I can be certain I got the part orders and get not get an answer on the computer or the phone, I did not want to order it twice, any help to find out would be appreciated!

I am sorry if you ordered the parts from the link I gave you, you ordered the parts from Sears, we are not affiliated with Sears in any way so it would be impossible for me to check on the parts for you, you will have to do that yourself through the Sears website, at https://www.searspartsdirect.com/ or click here
