Bad Electronic Range Control? (Kenmore 362.75701000)

Then we noticed the oven would preheat just fine but would not hold temperature. The ignitor would come on for about 15 seconds and then shut off before the gas solenoid would fire. This process would repeat every minute or so as the oven temperature continued to plummet. Increasing set point temperature actually causes oven to reach new temperature only to fall back into same cycle.
Repairman replaced temperature sensor even though it checked out okay. Same problem.
Repairman out again. Checked ignitor (okay) and suggested bad ERC.
Replaced ERC. Same problem.
Repairman now says just give it up. I can't - the oven isn't even five years old...
Is there something that needs to be done to calibrate the ERC when it is installed to make it function correctly? The part came with no instructions.
Is it possible there is a bad batch of ERCs floating around out there? It seems so unlikely and yet I'm at a loss.
I've read all about the whole ignitor business and considered maybe it was bad. The thing that I don't get is why does the ERC only leave it on for about 15 seconds at a time (I can hear the relay in the ERC click on and off)? Why does it preheat just fine? Why did it just become a problem after we replaced the original one?

Thanks a bunch for the information. Unfortunately I don't have the original part number. The Sears website gives me a part number of WB11K10012 for my model number. Do you know anything about this part number? Do you know if it will work? I didn't order the part from Sears because it was twice as much and thinking parts is parts. Evidently they are not.

Mike, call RepairClinic (800-269-2609) and ask them about this. I ran both those part numbers through the p/n lookup form below and came with two different Repairclinc numbers: 1086147 and 1086148.
If your original board part # was wb27k10048 you were to replace it with wb27k10141. If your original board part # was wb27k10049, you were to replace it with wb27k10142.

Bottom line: I seriously doubt that the ERC is the problem at this point and, if Repairclinic tells you that you've got the right ERC, then that's the fact. Time to look elsewhere for demons to destroy.
The wiring diagram would reveal what else needs to be checked. This will be on your range somewhere, the pan drawer is a common hiding place. Get it, post it here and I'll tell you some other things to check.
