Temperature probe in Kitchenaid YKEMC308 stopped working

Hi, Our YKEMC308 temperature probe worked for years but recently stopped. Now when plugged in and temperature set, the display takes about 20 seconds and then says that the probe is at set temperature and turns the oven off. Any ideas?

F10 oven code frequently beeps,often after cooking is over and oven is coolind down at different temperature settings tempermental some times it works sometimes it does not.


The "F10" error code caused by the runaway temperature.
The first thing I would check is the resistance across the oven temperature probe (aka oven temperature sensor) terminals at the EOC (electronic oven control) plug.
It suppose to be about 1100 Ohms at the room temperature.
If the resistance at the EOC plug is wrong, then measure the oven temperature probe resistance at the probe plug.
If it's wrong - replace the oven temperature probe. It's better to hardwire it, using a high temperature ceramic wire nuts.
If the readings at the EOC and at the oven temperature probe plug are different - check the wire harness between the oven temperature probe and the EOC.
If there is nothing wrong with the oven temperature probe resistance - replace the EOC.

Neither the oven or broil element comes on. No error code appears, any thoughts?


Hi.

If both broiling and baking element are not heating, then the most common fault causing the problem is a defective temperature probe.

The probe is located inside the oven cavity.
On most ovens there is only one temperature sensor, connected in line on the circuit from electroning oven control to baking and broiling element.
When the probe fails, it will affect both baking and broiling function.

The temperature probe is tested reching the probe, cutting or disconnecting its wiring, and testing the probe at room temperature, with a multimeter set on impedance at Rx1. If the multimeter reads no continuity (circuit open), then the probe must be replaced.

If the temperature probe is good, then parts that may be responsible for the fault are oven electronic control and wiring. Having both elements failing at the same time would be rather unusual.

Regards.

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.

KitchenAid Gas Range Temperature Probe


We had the same problem, and we tricked it into running it's cycle be doing the following;

1. Wrap a wet paper towel around the probe, plug it in, and close the door. Then follow the temp. probe directions in the manual:
2. Set probe temp. at 130 degrees, then select a bake cycle. We selected convect bake.
3. Set oven temp for 275 degrees, but maybe any temp over the probe temp would work.
4. Then start. The cycle took 12 minutes to complete, and when it was finished, turn the oven off and then open the door and unplug the probe.
5. Now everything works fine.

KitchenAid superbra range KGST307


I am not a repair man or anything, just an owner with the same gas range slidein appliance. What we have found to work was 1) plug in the probe into the socket in the oven 2) Turn on oven with the probe set at the minimum 160 degrees. and oven temperature to 325 degrees. 3) click start 4) wait for oven to reach probe temperature. 5) oven will then beep show end 6) Click cancel 7) open door and remove probe. 8) wait five minutes before trying to use again. I hope this helps you it has work for us so far. 6)
