The two thin wires leading to the probe were attached to the main unit wires with crimp type, transparent silicone (?) wire nuts with metal band cores (the nuts looked like nipples). I snipped the probe wires close to the nuts and tested the leads from the probe and only got a reading of 1using a digital multi-meter.  I understand the splicing part, but am wondering the best procedure for removing the probe without disassembling half of the unit.  It is very difficult to see a clear path in which to progress.  Any ideas or pictures? Hint:  Manual?   Hmmm, it appears to be put in through the outer side rear of the cabinet, so moving some insulation should reveal the attachment points...I hope. 

 

Muchos arigatos Fermented Juan,

Ok.  So the probe tests bad, but it didn't have a quick disconnect so I snipped the two wires that attached to it at the high temp wire nuts and  did the test.  The oven was off, but I didn't remove the probe.  I repeated the test several times because it tested so badly...kind of like an 8th grade student.  I ordered the part from Repair Clinic (I don't like the crowd at Appliance Zone... talk to Jor-El as I think he was involved with it).  Now, that it's here, how do I disassemble whatever is necessary to install it?  I have my thoughts, but I feel better checking.  Are there any manuals, diagrams, nearby voluntary repair persons?  Ok, the manual will suffice.

 

Thak you,

Mr. Lee Fix

...and thank you as well, Oh Inebriated One (Juan for our Spanish members).  This is what I found, and while the movie wasn't much on plot, it was skillfully directed.

micabay,

 

Thank you for the advice and I might as well pull the part.  I've got good, steady hands, but it may be bad after all.

Will report when done.

And remember kids, disconnect the power first.

I shall test the resistance of the sensor and report as soon as I figure out the best way to do so.  Any ideas?  I'll be looking for location, etc.
