Kitchenaid double oven shut down!

I have a double oven. i tried to self clean it. basically i closed the doors and pushed the clean button. it seemed to be working fine and then all of a sudden the the whole thing just shut down. none of the buttons are lit up. i cant do anything. the door remains locked. i thought it was the circuit breaker. i replaced the breaker and that wasnt it. there is electricity going to the oven, but nothing is happening. please help. this is only 2 years old!!!!! thanks in advance for all your help

    We have KEBC207KBL0 17 mos. old first trouble 6 mos ago.First attempt to clean upper oven shut the operation down on the lower oven. It has not worked since. Repair people have guessed at trouble and changed 2 control panels and now have ordered a wiring harness. We have had error messages E1 and F5 since the first evidence of trouble.

    I have the exact same problem. Pushed clean and left it for the night. Got up in the morning and seemed to have no power to either unit. Checked circuit breaker and nothing was bad at the breaker box. Looking for solutions right now.

    Same problem.  I've replaced the upper oven thermal fuse, but the oven still won't turn-on.  There's power to the oven and I believe power to the LCD panel.   After two Kitchenaid dishwashers, I've finally gone to Bosch.  Perhaps it also time to move away from Kitchenaid products all together.

    My Kitchen Aid double oven just shut down, the only thing that turns on is the interior light. I read the the best solution, do I just get fuse links at the harware store? I understand it is a two person job but do I need an oven repair person or is it simple?

    i had the same problem ,however Oct05,2007 guest , nailed it on the head. i replaced the thermal fuse and everything is back and working!



1 Answer

The problem is they overheat because hot air is drawn in by the blower and overheats the outer chamber of the oven where the thermo fuse link is. The one or two fuse links are blown simple replacement but have to remove oven (two person job) remove outer shell and find it (them) in the back of the oven. Also the fuse link wire going into the main processor is probably blown.

need to know what model and brand you have.
most newer ovens only need you to remove the racks, then push the button for self clean, push the button to allow about a 3 hour clean cycle and it should then go into a lock the door mode. after the time is up it will need to cool down and then you should be able to open the latch and wipe out any burnt residues.

Dacor CPO230, can't get lock to engage for self cleaning. I follow step clean symbolcomes up door lock moves into locked position then beeping starts and the word door flashes and the lock opens up.

For some reason the oven thinks you have a door that is not shut all of the way. Check the locking slot to make sure that there are no obstructions. Make sure that you are only doing one oven at a time, and not trying to cook in the other. Make sure you have no racks in the oven. Try pushing lightly on the door when the lock engages. For some reason your lock isn't engaging fully and that's why door is flashing. Good Luck
Below is from the owners manual for your oven.

Oven does not self-clean Door not shut tight Check for obstructions. Close door tightly
Oven set for delay timed cleaning Oven will start to self-clean at preset time.
Press CANCEL/SECURE to return to
normal operation
Double ovens only: Other oven is on. Turn off other oven.

Ge double oven

I believe this is because it takes a while for your oven to cool down (the cleaning cycle uses a very high temperature to burn up the grease and food). The timer is how long it takes before it will be cool, at which time the oven will unlock.
