Question
Hi, we have a Magic Chef elec. stove, Model 68HN 6TVW SC.  Oven does not reach correct temp. setting, then seems to shut off and not maintain any heat in oven.  We were told by a local parts/repair outfit that it was probably the oven sensor, #12001656.  We purchased for $52, installed it, and problem still exists.  I guess we would like to determine if we should continue to try to resolve problem by buying parts (which so far seems to have been guesswork)not knowing the costs that may be involved and/or if they will fix the problem.  Or, due to the age of this stove should we just buy a new one.   This is the first problem we have had with this stove approximately 15 or more years old.  
Your thoughts and/or recommendations would be appreciated.  Thank you.
