Remove power first.

Due to productions changes and continuous improvements, it may be necessary to use an adaptor wire harness or wire nuts for a compatible connection.

Remove screws from inside the oven ( some newer models like Frigidaire/Kenmore have the 2 screws on the outside at the back ) and pull towards you the inoperative sensor.

If the connection on the sensor or the wire harness is not applicable to your model, use two ceramic hi-temp wire nut connectors to splice the wires together. Strip insulation on each wire approximately 1/2" from the end. On some models, the sensor may be serviced from the front, on others the hole in the oven liner is not large enough for the wire nut/connector to pass through and must be serviced from the rear.

Important: Make sure the wire nuts/connectors are completely through the insulation and not touching the back of the oven cavity.

Once the wire nuts/connectors are properly positioned, reinstall the sensor screws removed earlier.
