Oven not working

I have a kenmore gas oven. Recently the oven does not heat up correctly. When I set it to 350, it heats up in a very short amount of time and beeps saying it has reached temperature, but it is not even close. The igniter lights up and the burner does come on, but it shuts off when it beeps saying it has reached temperature even though it hasn't. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Welcome to the forum

There is a sensor mounted inside the rear top of the oven. It converts heat measurement to an electronic signal that the control board needs to accurately control heat. Those sensors can go intermittent and drift off of value.

If you leave your model number I'll post the parts locator for you with the part illustrated.

Correct. WB20K0004 is the original part number. It's still available from some part stores. Otherwise the substitute part number is WB21X5301

PART # 43
