We have had this dual fuel range for just over a year. The whole control panel stopped working - oven, vent, etc. We got it replaced after a very long drawn out process with Sears. I used it one time, and now the oven won't heat up. If I go down to the basement and reset the circuit breaker, it will work, but then every time you open the oven door it shuts off and we have to reset it at the circuit breaker again.
Both my husband and I are flat out at work these days and cannot afford to be taking a bunch more days off from work to deal with this oven (we already took off a total of 4 days for Sears incompetence). Any ideas?

Order part #W10017820 (do this first before you open up the range). While you are waiting for the part to arrivedown load the parts list from kitchenaid.com. When you have the part, Shut offpower to the range. Then remove part 9762612Vent, Center (pull the oven door toward you, you will see four screws). Before you proceed, place a stool with booksor a **** of paper or what ever it takes to equal the height of the bottom ofthe control panel. Then remove part 4457249Face, Control Panel (two screws, right and left, under panel). DO NOT DROP PANEL. The panel is connected via wires so please be careful. Set the panel on the raised surface that youcreated. Replace part W10017820. Replace control panel. Replacecenter vent. Restore power to unit. RP appears in display. Set clock. You're good to go.
the oven controller in the main service/selection panel has either a bad solder joint on the circuits or the start realy for the oven on the same circuit board is bad and you have to replace the whole panel you cannot just buy the relay
I had a similar problem. There's a thermostat before the control panel. You need to remove the knobs and the front panel to get to it. You'll also need to remove a couple of trim pieces to keep from bending the panel. The part number is Whirlpool W10017820, sells for about $40.
Make sure there is proper electrical power going to range. Then check your kitcen circuit breakers or fuse box in your house, then reset the oven controls.
