Oven Not Baking Evenly? Oven Sensor Testing – Gas Oven Repair


since you can’t tell if an oven sensor
is malfunctioning simply by looking at it you’ll need to test it with a meter oven censors come in many shapes and
sizes but all of them can be tested in the same way you can choose from a variety of
multimeters to perform the test for this demonstration we will use both
analog and digital models when using an analog model first rotate the range selection dial to
the lowest setting for ohms of resistance then calibrate the meter by pinching the
probes together while adjusting the needle to read zero when using a digital model again rotate the dial to the lowest
setting for ohms of resistance or resistance with tone if your meter
has this option before you begin make sure the sensor
your testing has been removed or isolated from the appliance use a probe to touch one of the sensor’s
terminals and the second probe to touch the other
terminal if the sensor is functioning properly
the meter should read between one thousand and eleven hundred ohms of
resistance at room temperature be aware that the high resistance of the
sensor will probably prevent a meter tone a significantly different reading
strongly suggests that the sensor is malfunctioning and will need to be replaced
