Question about KitchenAid KERC601 Electric Kitchen Range

Open Question

Access to kitchenaid kerc601 electric stove display contrl panel (controls and display in front not back)?

Hi. The control panel light goes on and off (all displays) and I would like to see if I could fix it? I did call a kitchenaid service man and he said I need to replace it but it was going to cost $400. He said if I called a certain place (his friends I think) they would give me a good deal on a replacment. After reading other problems and answers here in FixYa, I'm thinking the service man has something going on meaning take my oven, make a cheap fix, and sell it again for a profit. Your thougths please if you think I would be able to even get to the control panel and try to fix it. I am a want-to-be repair man but ended up being an finance analyst.

SOURCE: After using the self-clean cycle, display panel went black and oven door stayed locked.

Happens alot dont feel bad , self clean mode runs the elements at 500 deg. to cook off everything possible , what happens is the cabinet gets to hot and heats saftey temp. fuses until they go out and they are not resetable. they are always located in different areas of ranges but usaully in the back. you can ohm them out to check them if you have a meter.let me know if you have any other questions.

SOURCE: Same thing with my one and 1/2 year old KGSS907 series stove

Yes it is fixed. Did a temporary jumper of the over temp fuse to use the oven one night. Installed a replacement 130 degree fuse with a mica transistor insuator under it instead of being mounted directly on the back side of the oven. This raised the range to about 150 degrees.
Thanks for the help

SOURCE: KitchenAid Range KESC307HBT8 display has gone

Sep 23, 2009- I think these use the same controller board as the Jenn-air units, they have a weak capacitor (C3) on the control board (Timer/control Display). Remove the top panel and look for a discolored or leaking capacitor (usually black about 1/2" high 3/8" in accross). Replace the capacitor and the problem goes away, until next time you use the self clean cycle which seems to overheat the control board and ruin the capacitor.

F7 E0 error on Kitchenaid KERC601 electric range Oven won't stay on more than 30 seconds before erring out. It still heats if I stand there and keep turning it back on. Stove top works fine.

The F7 E0 error means that the range is not getting the correct door lock status information. This could a problem with the interlock switch, the latch or the wiring, or the control board. First try to wiggle the door latch hook, this may cure the problem temporarily. Next unplug the range. Then pull out the range and take off the back panel. The latch assembly will be at the same height as the top of the door of the oven. Check if the interlock switch is closed when the door is locked. Check if the latch assembly moves properly. Replace any faulty part. If these are fine, check the wiring to the control board. Replace the control board if the wiring is fine.

To get the correct parts, you need to provide the complete model number of the range. lists 17 models that start KERC601. The full model number is on a label inside the oven door; usually it's on the jamb. However, the door latch assembly is bad, that part may no longer be available. I looked up the latch assembly for the KERC601HBL6; it is no longer available from any of the vendors that I checked.

I hope this helps.

Display panel control

I had the same problem with my Maytag range. I pulled out the stove and unplugged it. I took off the back panel that protects the digital panel that controls the oven. There was dust all over the electronics. I got a can of compressed air that is used for computers and blew all of the dust out. Plugged the stove back in and it has been working fine since then. Dust can create static electricity. The replacement panel is $300, plus labor.

Hi; Our washer displays "Control Panel

On the front of the unit is a control lock button, you will need to push and hold that button unit the control panel is unlocked. This should solve this problem. PS you may have pushed the control lock button when you either attempted to open door or just learned on panel, either way this does happen from time to time.

Oven goes on to bake at 350 and after being on for about 30 to 35 minutes it shuts down completely and goes back on once it i cool

Hello & Welcome to FixYa

It indicates a open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you wan to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. However, I believe it is the sensor as the problem is only with bottom oven. Please get back to me if you have any other questions.

Stove top works, no power on the oven. KDDT207A

I had the same 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.
