Question about KitchenAid KESC307HBS Electric Kitchen Range
Display/control panel was starting to dim when oven was on. Then it began to dim when oven was off. Now the control panel won't display anything at all, but when I press the buttons it still beeps and the oven turns on also.

The problem is: the temp seems to be 'stuck' at 260 and will not allow any higher settings.
Calling KitchenAid proved to be unuseful. The manual did not have this item in the troubleshooting pages. Resetting the power does not help.
There is really no problem besides that the temp display setting has been somehow set to be celsius (metric system) rather than farhenheit (english system). Changing this setting somehow can be easily touched off without knowing, thus the "I didn't do anything and yesterday it was working fine..." comment from family members.
Reset the temp display back to farhenheit (F). This is done by opening the oven door, then hold down the 'Broil' button until you hear a beep from the control panel. The same method may be used to change from Farhenheit back to Celsius.
I speculate the inavertent change of the temp setting is done while cleaning the flat control panel. So the best thing to do is to always 'LOCK' the control panel when cleaning the controls. This is done by holding down the keypad "3/lock" for a few seconds until the display shows LOCK.
(The solution was already posted when I arrived at this page. I just organized it a bit by adding some details and a preventative comment. Many thanks to those who posted earlier, solving my issue as well. I hope my writing presents a clearer and quicker read to the next person)

F2 E1 is an error code that says the membrane (touch pad assembly) is not connecting to the ERC(Electronic Range Control). Call the warrantee company and give them the model number and serial number of your range and ask them if it still has a parts warrantee on the electronics. If it does, they will have to send their technician out to replace the part or parts and charge you for the labor. Your model may have the membrane and Erc all in one part, so an easy diagnosis, if it is seperate you need to make sure the membrane ribbon connector is plugged tightly into the Erc, plug your range back in, press cancel, and then retest. If it still fails then replace the membrane, test and if it fails again, replace the Erc. Before you tear into this make sure you unplug the unit for 30 minutes, plug it back in and test. Sometimes this will reset the Erc and solve your problem. If it doesn't the make sure you unplug the range before doing any repair work. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

From what I've read, the igniter is most often the problem and was with my KitchenAid Supra oven, Here are some details to help you do the actual repair by knowing where everything is located.
1. The oven has 2 igniters: one for the broiler (located at top inside of oven) and one the "overall" oven igniter (located underneath the heat shield on bottom of oven; remove 4 screws to get to it).
2. Do visual test to see if your broiler igniter works versus your oven igniter. It will glow orange if working. This is a good way to focus on the source of the problem (i.e., if no glow, then it may very well be the igniter).
3. Order new igniter. The site repairclinic.com shipped mine very fast.
4. To install: pull oven away from wall, unplug, and remove inside panel on back (not entire back panel but, rather, panel that is in the middle of the back). Here, you can access one of the two igniter wires. You can access the other wire by removing the storage shelf on the bottom of the oven. Snap the old ones off. Unscrew the igniter from inside the oven, Snake new wires through back.Screw new igniter in place. Put everything back in place and you are done!
