Question about KitchenAid KERC507 Electric Kitchen Range

Range will not hold a consistent temperature

I have a kitchenaid electric range Model KERC507. It will not hold a consistent temp. If I set to bake at 350 degrees, the oven will only reach a temp of 340 and then begin to decline in temp.

    I'm grateful for the response to my problem. The model range that I have does not have an element on the botton, just the above the oven. Is the element or terminal the same thing.

    What's the best way to get at the "hidden bake element" (below the floor) to see if it's coming on?

  • yvette00 Nov 21, 2008

    I changed the bake element, but the problem with the stove not holding at a consistent temp. is still happening. Any other suggestions.

    The Model Number is KERC507HBT2 Kitchenaid Electric Range. I can use this oven as both a conventional and convection oven. When I set the oven for bake it will not hold the temp. as explained in my original problem, but when I set the convection oven to a certain temp. it will hold perfectly at the temp. I set it to. Thank you for all your help.

Good chance your bake element is out. Could be the element or a terminal burned off.
When you set to bake, normally it preheats which uses the bake and broil element.
When it reaches "near" temp, the broil goes off and the bake takes over.
If the bake element, (the one in the bottom), is not working, the temp will decline.

Turn to 450 deg.
Watch the elements, assuming you have a door with a glass, and see if both elements, top and bottom, glow red.

    Hoping your range has a drawer at the bottom.
    Pull out the drawer.
    At the top left should be the model number.
    Should be KERC507xxxx
    Need the entire number to look up a manual.
    All the ones I look at that start with KERC507 do have a bake element.
    Let me know.

    Assuming you have a conventional oven and not a convection oven, all you have done seems should have solved the problem. Still would like the full Model number to look up the manual. They show so many with the start of the number KERC507.
    There are other possibilities but I don't want you to spend lots of $$ on parts unneeded.
    T-Stat is a possibility but doubtful.
    The way it will typically work convention style:
    Oven preheats to temp - say 350 deg. In preheat, both elements are on. After preheat, only the bake element works. It is the one that maintains temp from that point on. As the T-Stat cycles, Bake element cycles with the T-Stat.
    I would love to help, but am surprised this did not help.
    Do you have meter to test? Check of ohms of element would show OK or not.

This means a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Oven will not heat to requested temperature

Shaffy, When baking only the bake element should heat. When broiling only the broil element (upper) should heat. Your oven is a Kitchenaid, you have a 5 year warranty on any electronic element or control board. You may have a temperature sensor that is not working right. The oven just might need to be calibrated, the instructions would be in your owners manual. Your bake element might be failing, it would have to be ohmed out. You also need to verify that the bake element is getting 240V. when turned on. back
