Re: Controls lost mind -- keeps asking for probe temp

Houston, we have a problem... Your electronic relay control, (ERC), is shot, kaput, no bueno and must be replaced in order to correct your situation. The ERC part number is 3191106, and retails for ~305.00 dollars! (I kid you not). I guess now is the time you might consider replacement over repair. That's a good question. If you choose to proceed with the repair, repost and I'll help with details on how to do it.

Our KitchenAid Electric Range display panel keeps indicating to set probe temp (and beeps every time) when probe is not even plugged in oven. When placing the probe in the oven jack it feels very loose. ...


This means a loose/broken wire on the oven temp sensor or the oven temp. sensor itself is bad and should be replaced. To solve this issue test the oven temp. sensor, it should read between 1080-1120 ohms, if the rating is more then that and the door appears to be closing fine then it is the control board that is bad and should be replaced. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

Kitchen aid KGRA 806 PSS The " probe temp" words and icon feature on our Kitchenaide KGRA 806 PSS freestanding gas stove/oven will suddenly start to beep and flash.


This is a common issue and cannot be troubleshooted. The only way to fix this is to replace the temperature probe. The error will disappear and the range would start working fine.

Please accept the solution if it's helpful. Do get back to us for any further query.

Thanks for contacting

Kichenaid electric stove

the probe is put into the oven to sense heat and to prevent the oven from oveheating during normal operation. the reason the probe is beeping is because it's dislogged or needs to be replaced.

the only way to make the beeping stop is to disable it but i wouldn't recommend it.

have a technician run a diagnostic on the stove. sounds like the probe needs to be replaced.

Self clean wont turn on...

Hi guess what! I am another KitchenAid owner with exactly the same problem. This is the second time it has happened and I am not going to sit back and let Whirlpool off the hook.

I plan on standing outside my local appliance store with a
placard and enough literature to hand out to anyone walking past.

This must stop!

KitchenAid Gas Range Temperature Probe

We had the same problem, and we tricked it into running it's cycle be doing the following;

1. Wrap a wet paper towel around the probe, plug it in, and close the door. Then follow the temp. probe directions in the manual:
2. Set probe temp. at 130 degrees, then select a bake cycle. We selected convect bake.
3. Set oven temp for 275 degrees, but maybe any temp over the probe temp would work.
4. Then start. The cycle took 12 minutes to complete, and when it was finished, turn the oven off and then open the door and unplug the probe.
5. Now everything works fine.

Probe light

I had the same problem today (my wife overflowed a pot of chicken stock last night, so there was liquid all over the cook-top, and some probably got down behind the control pannel). Based on the solution to a problem that seemed similar, though definitely not as exact as your description, I checked the probe connection (unscrewed the retaining nut, then unscrewed the two sheet metal screws holding the housing in place, then gave the probe connection a gentle tug to ensure that it was still properly connected). Finding nothing wrong, I replaced the housing and retaining nut, and the lights were no longer flashing.
