Question about KitchenAid KESC307 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Self clean inoperative

We have a kitchenaid stove, KESC307HWW6, with a defective self clean function. Selecting the clean function and then start causes a buzz for a second and then several seconds later the short buzz occurs again. This repeats about four or five times then an error code "F5 E1" appears in the display. Selecting canel returns oven to normal. I can force the oven into cleaning cycle with the door open by holding the door close switch in and manualy turning the door locking latch clockwise about 1/4 turn. I am tempted to close door and reach through the front vent to turn the latch so we can clean the oven, but I am afraid the latch will not turn back when cycle is over. Any help would sure be nice. Also where might I get hold of a service manual? Thanks, Superglide

Re: self clean inoperative

Dear Superglide, An error code "F5 E1" means "door latch not operating". In such situation I would recomend to replace the oven lock assy (part # 9782611 ) which is located on the back panel.If you are going to do it yourself - DO NOT forget to unplug the power cord first. About service manual - try to call Kitchen Aid directly.

What buttons do I turn on my 25 yr old Kenmore stove to use the cleaning feature

I think that range had a mechanical clock. On it, you have to set the start and stop time (and push or pull the knob(s) to activate it), close the lock lever, and set the temperature and function dial(s) to self-clean. Unfortunately, if your clock isn't working (which is a common failure on stoves this old), you won't be able to run the self-clean cycle.

The self clean feature stops part way thro the cycle and knocks out the oven entirely. The gas stove top still works

Kitchen aid (now Whirlpool) has actually produced a defective stove here. Your problem is the thermostat in the rear of the unit. You can replace it yourself if you are handy, but that will not fix the problem that is built in to this very poor quality stove. If you ever try to use the self cleaning feature, it is most likely you will overheat the unit, and knock it out again and again.I wrote to Kitchen aid and received a very rude response from their "customer dis-service dept"...I told them theyir stove was defective and they wanted to sell me a NEW part for a high price, not even saying "sorry"...what a bad company! I urge all to stay away from Whirlpool products...they are junk!

By the way the door lock error will stay there until the oven cools. Once it has cooled it will go away. the reason is in a self clean the oven is supposed to get very hot to clean. The door lock is for your protection. once it has cooled down enough the door lock will go away.

Stove top difficult to light

your gas jets are dirty.. clean them with a toothbrush (after everything is cooled down).. you can use the selfclean to clean the iron pieces that cover the burners..

be careful with kitchen aid self cleaning.. there is a known issue with the thermal fuses blowing quite easily on most self cleaning cycles..

good luck

We had the same problem as well. everything locked up and the display board went dead. It turned out to be the thermostat in the back. Once that was replaced everything worked ok. . The serviceman told us to pull the oven out from the wall when self cleaning. It is because the heat disapation and air circulation from the oven is very poor when running at maximum temperatures and this burns out components. First check the termostat, which is a $20.00 item.
