Question about KitchenAid KESC308LSS Electric Kitchen Range
The other night we were using 2 out of 4 burners plus the oven and all 3 initially produced heat. Part way through cooking, we noticed that the element knob lights were not lit up & there was no heat from the elements or oven. The display on the panel still lit up, so the range is getting power. The display works, oven light comes 'on' as does the convection fan, but there is NO heat. We thought that it might be the Thermostat Manager (#9759242 ), but we checked it and it is okay.

CESAR, THE OVEN CONTROL IS THE CLOCK,HOWEVER, ON MANY KITCHEN AID RANGES, THERE IS AN INLINE FUSE 15AMP, THAT IS IN THE OVEN CIRCUIT. I WOULD SUGGEST THAT THE INLINE FUSE BE CHECKED FIRST BEFORE CONDEMNING THE CONTROL.
DAVID, THE GLASS TOP ELEMENTS ARE CONTROLLED BY THE SURFACE SWITCH FOR REGULATING TEMPS. THE SWITCH WILL TURN THE ELEMENT ON AND OFF TO REGULATE TEMP. I WOULD SUSPECT THE SURFACE SWITCH(WHAT THE KNOB IS ATTACHED TO) AS THE DEFECTIVE COMPONENT. THERE IS A HIGH LIMIT SWITCH THAT IS PART OF THE ELEMENT. IF IT WAS BAD, THE HOT SURFACE INDICATOR LAMP WOULD BE LIT ALL THE TIME.
THE ELEMENT IS NOTHING MORE THAN A COIL OF WIRE THAT HEATS WHEN CURRENT IS PASSED THROUGH IT.
IF IT WAS BAD, IT WOULDN'T DO ANYTHING AT ALL.

Pull the range, remove the back cover and locate the thermal switch and the oven TOD. Check both parts for continuity. Replace any of them if it's open.

The oven TOD
- The part number for the thermal switch is AP3799085
- The part number for the oven TOD is AP3086326
