Question about Whirlpool Ovens
The sensor should read around 1100 ohms if good and neither wire can be shorted to frame. If that sensor checks good you need a new control. Tech sheet 1
Tech sheet 2
There was 2 revs I posted both. Is the quick connect to sensor dirty? Sometimes bypassing the quick connect works. That connections gets corroded sometimes.

you will have to filling the fluid
After filling the reservoir with fluid, set the temperature:
1. Set the Safety Thermostat (OTP) knob on the rear panel to full clockwise position, then press the
Power switch ON. The pump starts to operate. The LED display indicates the power up self-test
(8888). You are now ready to set the front panel controls to the desired temperature setting.
2. Press the SET/ENTER button. The degree light flashes indicating the temperature can be changed.
3. Turn the INCREASE/DECREASE knob to the desired setting. This setting is accepted after
pressing the SET/ENTER button or automatically accepted after a few seconds. The degree light
stops flashing and the display indicates the actual bath temperature.
The set temperature may be checked at any time by pressing the SET/ENTER button. Allow sufficient
time for the bath to stabilize at the desired temperature.
If you are unable to raise the set temperature, it is possible that the High Limit is set lower than the set
temperature you have selected. If this happens, set the High Limit to be 1°C or more higher than your
But if the temperature remain same then you will have to increase it with the below instruction
Setting the High Limit
This feature provides additional set point security by allowing a selectable upper limit set point. If the
fluid reaches the high limit, the unit will shut down and display "HI-L" until the fluid temperature is
reduced or the "HI-L" value is raised. The "HI-L" should be at least 1°C higher than the selected control
temperature to avoid unwanted shut down during regular operation.
TO SET THE HIGH LIMIT TEMPERATURE:
1. Press and hold the SET/ENTER button until the display reads "UNIT".
2. Turn the INCREASE/DECREASE knob until the display reads "HI-L".
3. Press the SET/ENTER button and enter the desired value using the INCREASE/DECREASE knob.
4. Press SET/ENTER or the setting will be accepted after a few seconds.

The unit not reaching its set temperature this problem is related to weak elements.The weak element gets partially faulty.It works but not properly.Checking the voltage of element and the connections of element will confirm the fault.
It sounds like the oven element is not working.
To check it, remove rear panel in oven compartment, after running it for a few minutes, it should be very hot to the touch, BE CAREFUL, DO NOT BURN YOUR FINGERS.If you are having problems with your electric oven heating up too slowly, not being able to maintain temperature set point, or wild variations in temperature, then you probably have a bad baking element in your oven.If you can see the elements, watch them and see if they both get red hot when initially warming the oven. If only the top, broil element gets hot then you have a burned out element or a bad contactswhere the element plugs into. Usually lifting the element and pulling out on it will release the element. If the contacts are discolored or pitted then they could be causing your problems. By using an ohm meter you can check the resistance of the element. If you get no continuity through the element it is no good.Bad elements will often have blisters, bubbles, or even burn in two.
If the element contacts are bad, make sure the you replace both the element and the receptacle that the element plugs into. Replacing only the element will only temporarily solve your problem.

Check to see if power is getting to the range/oven. Does anything turn on, even a light? If not, check for a blown fuse or tripped circuit breaker. Often the main wiring connection from the house, at the range/oven, gets burned and so breaks the connection. Then you may have to replace the power cord to the range/oven, and the terminal block that the wire is attached to.
Also, there may be a broken or burned wire at the back of the range/oven. If you repair any of the wires, use only proper appliance-grade wire and wire connectors.
