Question about Kenmore 96222 / 96224 / 96229 Electric Kitchen Range
Just replaced the sensor per SolutionGuy's advice. Unfortunately this did not solve the problem. Despite setting the oven to, say, 425, it only preheats to 350 - almost like it is ignoring my temp setting and defaulting to the 350 initial setting.
SOURCE: Oven won't heat accurately
The main problem is the manufacturer's fault in the setting accuracy of the temperature, i mean when the manufacturer has to adjust the temperature into the required temp it does not set to the required one. This is called "calibration" in engineering, the best for you is to tell the manufacturer to replace or keep it.

If the element glows its ok , if you have replaced the sensor with a new one it can only be the control board. in some cases you can adjust the temp. through the control , it should list directions to do so in the manual. Good luck

It's easier to eliminate the element.You can do this two ways;first thing,remove power from unit.Unplug it and you know for sure power is off.Inside the oven you can get to the wiring on element by removing the two screws on the back wall that holds the bracket to the wall.(this works for both elements)Pull the element out and you will see the wires(2).They will be either screwed on or connected with spade clips which pull on/off.Remove at least one wire and use your meter,set on ohms, put a meter lead on each element connector,you should read continuity.If you don't the element is bad,replace it.Give the elements a good visual inspection first,some times you can see where the element burnt out.The other way to get to the wiring by pulling the back panel off the stove.Hope this helps.

It's held in place by 2 screws in the oven. Take out the screws and pull the wire gently. It has a connector on it but if it comes unplugged or the wire breaks inside a simple fix just got complicated. God luck.
