These tend to crack and "unzip" because they are such a tight circle... Kill the power, and meter the ring element for ohm's resistance. If the element tests ok, check the wires to the element for overheating, and if those look fine, remove the control board and look for burnt solder joints where the relays are mounted.

I looked up the parts break down for this model there are 7 different ones your last 2 digits are missing this unit dos not use torsion springs the MW door should have a brown arm riveted to the door that goes into the frame this activates a switch
Turn the power to the oven off. It usually is not possible to unplug the power chord for the built-in appliances so go to the main switch board and just turn off the oven power for about 5 minutes and then turn on the switch. The error code should disappear. Mine did! Chander Mehta

this is a common occurance with many self clean ranges, especially slide in and wall oven units. the kitchen aid ranges usually have a non reset hi-limit. meaning it opens one time and needs to be replaced, sadly.
to replace the thermostat can be tricky to do if you're not experienced, so if you have any reservations about taking you range apart, call a qualified tech in your area. if you decide to take a go at it, well first things first.
**FIRST unplug from the wall or shut off the breaker**
*the other issue is not knowing what model you have.
I can tell you most recent kitchen aid units made by whirlpool have a fixed hi-limit at the back outer oven wall. remove the rear panel, and the hi-limit should be easily accessed. that part # 8300802
KitchenAid wants $58 for the replacement bulb. I bought it for $1.99 from www.lightbulbsdirect.com and it works just fine. The Item number is Q5G412V. It is a halogen 5-watt, 12-volt bipen G-4. Replacing the bulb requires some dismantling of the microwave. At first I was nervous about removing so many parts to get to the bulb but in the end it really wasn't so bad. The only tool I needed was a Phillips screwdriver. I surfed the net a eventually found instructions left by a friendly Blogger that guided me through the whole process. KitchenAid engineers were so STUPID when they designed this microwave. It takes two hours to replace a bulb that should take 5 minutes. Oddly enough, replacing the bulb in the normal oven below the microwave oven is a piece of cake.
