My daughter called from about 600 miles away. Her Kenmore range/oven has
developed problem. The range burners are fine, but the oven goes over
temperature. When set for 350 it gets up to 500. This is a recent problem
that was discovered because stuff was burning. Aha, says I, it sounds as if
the temperature controller has gone south. She read off the model number as
911-4532190. The Sears site does not recognize that model. It came with the
house and is probably 15 years old or so. She's owned the house for over ten
Does anyone have a cross reference to tell who the original manufacturer
Is there a generic part that is a proper replacement?
How is the controller removed, from the front or the rear?
Is it possible that there is a replaceable sensor that is at fault or is
the sensor a permanent part of the controller?
She is fairly handy and might be able to replace it herself or could enlist
a volunteer with the promise of beer.
