Question about KitchenAid KERC601 Electric Kitchen Range
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.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

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.

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

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.
