Question about Ovens
Your landlord just doesn't want to pay for it, regardless of how the failure happened.
Any kind of sensor except a thremocouple is prone to failure because of the high heat to which it is exposed.
Since handling the tiny output of a thermocouple requires a more sophisticated circuit to derive temperature from its surroundings, the sensor is likely a special kind of resistor called a thermistor designed to change its resistance value in concert with the changes to which it is exposed and these are a lot more likely to fail than the thermocouple.
I don't know your range but the sensor itself is probably not expensive but I don't know how much disassembly is needed to replace it.
Calling a dealer with a service department could get you a ballpark number on the total cost related to that specific model.
The part that seems to be what you need for that model can be viewed here:
