I have a Kenmore gas range that won't hold temperature. When I turn it on, it comes up to set temp, but if the oven is used for more 10 minutes to bake a batch of cookies then it loses temp. Even pizza takes nearly 45 minutes to cook! I have temporarily remedied this by babysitting the oven and turning it off every 10-15 minutes to reset it. When it is on for a longer period of time you can hear the gas come on. The gas sounds like some rhythmic pulsating sh-sh-shh, sh-sh-shh. Could this be a temperature sensor? It seemed to have started after one of the first times I used the self-cleaning feature.

Sounds similar to what mine is doing. Since Dacor uses the gas broiler to preheat the oven, the problem is that the lower heating element isn't getting power. I took out the element and verified that the element is still good, but no AC voltage coming from the relay board to the element. Try setting on the Pure Convection mode - it will probably heat up and hold the temp fairly well - that still doesn't do any good if you need to bake something covered (convection modes are useless for covered container..
the oven themperature needs to be calibrated, the set screw it's in side of the oven knob when you remove it in the senter of the shaft there is a very small screw, turn it , beon that replace the thermostat.
The technical jargon is,.....:
In order for your gas oven to work this is what has to happen: 1. when you turn on the oven, the range sends 120 volts to the glow bar igniter. 2. as the igniter heats up (and starts to glow) it starts using more electricity. 3. when the electric use reaches a set amount (say 3.2 amps) the range knows the glow bar igniter is hot enough to ignite the gas, so it then releases gas through the gas safety valve. 4. when the thermostat tells the oven controller that the temperature has been reached, the control cuts power to the igniter, cutting the amp draw down, causing the safety gas valve to close. 5. process repeats to hold oven temp until you turn off oven.
So,..........the solution is:
most likely your oven igniter burnt out. Find your model number, usually on the range frame just behind the lower drawer or broiler drawer (depending on if it is a self clean gas range or not) and order the correct igniter and replace it.
Circuit board defective
Replace control board
1. The oven temp has risen above 665F and the door is not locked or 2. The temp has risen above 965F with the door locked
1. Check oven temp in mode that failure occurred. Replace EOC (Electronic Oven Control) if above limits 2. Check 8-pin connector. Check and replace oven temperature sensor if necessary
Oven temperature sensor is open (above 3000 ohms)
Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for open wiring between oven temperature sensor and control
Oven temperature sensor is shorted (below 500 ohms)
Check resistance of oven temperature sensor, check for shorted wiring between oven temperature sensor and control
Internal watchdog circuit has detected a failure
Defective EOC (Electronic Oven Control)
Check push buttons and dome switches on control
Logic interrupted (lock motor switch sequence)
Check door lock switches and wiring
Most likely problem is the oven temp. sensor. Should check around 1100 ohms at room temp. I would replace that first because it is the easiest and cheaper than an oven control.
