Calgary, AlbertaGeneral ElectricJGBP35GEP3WGWB12K5No failure codeGood Morning. Our GE XL44 gas range is experiencing an oven temp control problem. I replaced the sensor which seemed to correct the issue. Then last week the oven temp control variance became noticeably significant. For example, the control board would display 375 but the actual temp was significantly less. I removed the WB12K005 control board and would value shipping to Appliance Timers to see if you can trouble-shoot and repair. The clock works fine. The audible alarm changed from a buzz to a squeak. No other symptoms were visible. Markings on the WB12K005 are;
