Set probe temperature

Our Kitchenaid Superba built-in electric convection oven is giving the message to set probe temperature. We aren't using the probe and we can't turn this message off. Now we can't bake anything because we aren't using a probe. Do you know how to turn this message off?

    Same problem with KitchenAid Superba asking for probe to be inserted before it will continue heating. Can't get probe symbol off or oven to start.

If i remember correctly i believe this is actually a wiring issue. you would need to turn the power off open the control panel. and look for a control board with the probe connection on it. there should be a tech sheet in the compartment to help you identify it however if it is the problem they would be purple wires on the connector that need to be reversed.

Kitchenaid Superba Electra oven doesn't reach set temperature. When we set the temperature for 400, it only gets to 375. Is there any way to fix this?

I have a KitchenAid Superba KEMC308KSS0 that is about 9 years old. In the past few months it has been cooking really slowly. Whereas in the past, in convection mode, things cooked faster than...


I have a Superba built-in YKEBS 177 D56 ( dual convection/convention)...I think it might be about 10 years old. I noticed the same thing starting last year..the temperature seems a litlle off and the cook time on the convention seems to take longer. I've never used the conventional oven so I don't know if the temperature is OK on that component.
I don't have a manual. and I've been searching for it...does anyone know which one I need?
Sorry I couldn't help with your problem, mine is similar to your though!!

Our Superba (what a joke) Model KEMS308 / KEMS378 has the exact same temperature probe problem where the plug where the probe is inserted is supposedly getting dirty BECAUSE THERE ISN'T A COVER OVER IT...


Common Problem, design defect allows moisture or corrosion on terminals, to cause this problem. Two ways of repairing this. 1: Plug probe in, hang probe out the door, input 160 degree probe temp, turn convection bake to 450 degrees and let it bake for a while. Turn unit off, unplug probe and test to see if the problem is resolved. If it is moisture, the high heat bakes out the moisture and resolves the issue. We have also had some luck with a hair dryer blowing on the probe receptacle to dry out the receptacle. 2: You can pull the entire unit out of the wal with the power off at the circuit breaker, remove the backing panel, and disconnect the wiring to the probe. Some units you have to remove a side panel instead. You won't be able to use the probe in the future if you do this, and you do have to insulate the wires terminals or plug. As always, if you don't know what you are doing with electricity, call a technician to do this repair, it is better to be safe. Also as an aside, I work on all brands of ovens and we find that the Kitchen Aid models have the fewest repairs and the greatest reliability, everybody has design defects and most of the other brands have deliberately built in these defects for faster replacement. The only advice on the Kitchen Aid units that I recommend is that when you do replace it that you buy a separate oven and seperate microwave oven. Most microwave ovens are only lasting 8 to 15 years before major repairs, yet the ovens last 30 to 40 years. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

How do I use the thermometer in my Kitchenaid Superba?


I found the answer by checking the Kitchenaid website to find the manual. My model is KEMS308sss04, this is found on the right door frame. Website is: http://shop.kitchenaid.com/assets/pdfs/literature/Use%20and%20Care%20Guide%20-%20W10162223.pdf
You can preheat oven, but then turn off to set thermometer. Put probe in food. Put food in oven and plug in probe. The digital light asks for the temperature you want, type it in. Then the cooking method. I used convection bake at 325. Hit START. (The first time I didn't stop the oven and it didn't work. After stopping everything and starting with the probe before turning on the oven, it worked perfectly. Good Luck.

Superba convection oven probe display problem


I had a similar problem today with my KitchenAid Superba wall convection oven (2002 model). I was roasting tomatoes at 225 degrees F for 3 or 4 hours when the control pad changed and showed that the probe was in use (never have I used it and had to look for it). I, too, tried to plug in the probe and take it out, but nothing changed. My worry was that I could no longer use the timed bake function. After trying to reset by turning off the oven at the breaker, with no change, I turned on the oven to 400 F and left it on for 10 - 15 minutes hoping that the high temperature would dry out whatever moisture that must have gotten in the place where the probe connects. Then I turned it off and just waited. After a half hour or so the control pad cleared and nothing showed (that is what you want when the oven is off!). Everything is back to working now.

How to set the temperature on the KitchenAid Superba oven/convect


A separate oven thermometer is absolutely necessary in baking. Something similar to this would be cheap and easy. http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?order_num=-1&SKU=10161738

Or you could go for a digital one with a probe.
