Kenmore oven isn't heating properly

Hi all this is my fist post here.

My problem is that my Kenmore gas oven isn't getting to the correct temperature and it's older so I don't know the model name of the oven. The oven shuts off way before it reaches temperature. I will provide pictures for you. Thank you all for reading my problem. Maybe someone might know my model number and how to remedy this.

Thank you lawrosa! I was thinking that from all the youtubing I have been doing. I would replace but I am not sure which sensor to buy as I don't know the model. Are they all pretty standard?

There should be a tag in the oven door somewhere. Can you find it and take a pic? Or on the back of the appliance. Or in broiler drawer///

The ID tag can usually be found by pulling out the drawer and looking at the top left of the frame.

I haven't been able to find any numbers and I cannot read the numbers on the sensor itself. Very frustrating. I will continue to look around. Thanks so much for your help so far.

EDIT: Eureka! I found it. I don't know how i missed it before; must have been tired. The model number is 911 7360191.

WB21X5301 is a correct part number for that Kenmore's temperature sensor.

You could have a defective temperature sensor or a defective control board. Usually you will get a trouble code (F3, F4) on the display. The first step is to check the resistance of the sensor.

The link below appears to be the same sensor. I just left it because they have good diasgnostic videos.
