Question about Whirlpool Kitchen Ranges
Replaced the them sensor
The first thing to ask yourself is "Is the thermostat accurate?"
Get an El-Cheap-O oven thermometer at the grocery store. Set your oven for any random temp, say 325. With the over thermometer HANGING FROM A RACK IN THE MIDDLE, wait until the oven light that tells you it is heating goes out, indicating that the oven is at 325. Open the door and QUICKLY read the thermometer you have hanging in there. IF the hanging thermometer and the temp displayed on the oven match within, say, 25 degrees then we have an issue. And, as you say that you have already replaced the temperature sensing element, that only leaves the control board or the upper and lower safety thermostats. Those are what we call "Snap Disc" thermostats. To see a typical snap disc thermostat, go to ApppliancePartsPros.Com or just BING (NEVER 'Google') Part Number: AP3055315. These theremostats may be opening prematurely, preventing the oven from reaching full temp. And once the oven cools, the snap disc will close again, allowing the unit to work. Kind Of. If it's not one of the safeties, the board is toast.

I just had my ignitor replaced. The ignitor glowed but it must pull a certain amount of amps before it will allow the gas valve to open. Once the ignitor starts glowing the gas should come on within 30 seconds. Now that I saw it done I realize it was something I could have done myself. Be sure the tech does not try to slip you a used ignitor as mine tried.

HI. These codes are an indication of oven temperature sensor failure. The sensor is damaged. This will not allow for proper operations. The affected part must be replaced, asap.
The sensor is, generally, located inside the oven, mounted on the back wall, on the top right, or left corner.It will look like a 4 inch long slender probe. There will be two screws holding the housing on the back of the oven wall. Once the screws are removed, the sensor will need to be extracted from the back side of the unit.
