Question about KitchenAid KESC307HBS Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

My display on my 2003 KitchenAid model KESC307HBS8 range was slowly diming until I could not see the display anymore. I ordered a new control panel 9782419CB and new Main Control Board 9782455 from Sears Parts Direct. I have completed the "End of Service Test", (could not complete the test as directed) but discovered that not all the key functions are correct. The number 9 key turns on the oven light, the number 7 key starts the Convection function etc. I am not sure if this a configuration issue with either being the wrong Main Control Board or a jumper configuration at P3 on the Main Control Board. I know that the new key pad differs from the original as to the contact on the ribbon cable does not go to the same function as the new key pad. I would appreciate any advice from anyone that has experienced similar issues with the replacement of these parts.

You have not said what problems you are having but want to know if you have wired up the unit correctly. Is that correct?
You are only saying that the configuration is wrong but not that the unit does not work....if the unit works...be happy.
For examp you say the the # 9 key turns on the oven light....are you saying it should be another key?

You may have to restate your problem. Make sure the new board is the one that substitute for your old one. If it is not, they will usually provide you with the package insert to explain the changes or differences.

Testimonial: "I have figured out the problem. There is a parts defect with the "Control Panel" P/N 9782419CB that must also be installed with the new 9782455 "Main Control Board" for this model of range. If you look at the back of the new "Control Panel" you will see 5 rows of 3 contacts and the glass overlay only has 4 rows of 3 sets of keys. There is an extra row and that is why nothing lines up. I was able to shine a light through the rear of the panel directly over the contact and placed a stick on number or function that corresponds with that contact on the glass overlay. Doesn't look real great, but will work for now until I get this problem resolved. Whoever is manufacturing this part for Whirlpool has not upgraded the glass overlay to match the heat sensitive contacts on the rear of the panel."

SOURCE: Range Model YKESC307HWO: Received Voltage

It sounds like the control board of the timer is faulty. Do you need the electronic timer/clock. If you don't it is normally easy to by-pass the timer altogether. Find the main active wire coming into the timer. Then identify the load wiring which runs from the timer to the oven thermostat control. These two wires simply need to be connected and the timer is bypassed and the oven will work.

I have a kitchen aid electric range kesc307hbs8. we lost electricity one day and when it went back on the stove began to smell burTt. the range heats up but the control panel and touch pad are not working....


Hi.It is advisable to turn off your fuse or appliance when there is a power outage..When the power turns back ,it will produce surge amount of voltage that would eventually damage your appliances.when power comes back it has a very abnormal current flow.it may rise or fall which might beyond the wires capability.meaning it goes beyond what the wire can carry..It might be that when the power supply return it gives high current and short circuit the ground and live wires of your electric range.You better check continuity using an OHMETER.MULTITESTER if there is no short circuit.If the reading of the multitester if set to ohms is too high thats beyond the maximum amount going to the right,then there is a short circuit..

Starts by itself. beeps constantly when on. locks up in pan mode


You have a shorting membrane keypad. If and when an oven is coming on or doing anything by itself, this is very dangerous and can result in a fire.

So until it is repaired, please leave it unplugged or leave the door open when it's not in use, and of course one should never leave a microwave unattended while cooking.

On many Kitchenaid models, the keypad is not available as a separate part and you have to order the plastic control panel frame / subassembly (depending on model number) which comes with a new keypad.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number here.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Some connectors on the relays may have a lock:

Kitchenaid microwave model KHMS155L, starts randomly for 3 minutes with "PAN" flashing on display screen, than locks up with "F-2" message on display screen


"F2" means you have a shorting membrane keypad. The "Pan Heat" key is shorting.

On these models, the membrane keypad is not available as a separate part, so you would have to order the control panel frame assembly which comes with a new keypad.

In this case, you simply move your circuit board into the new frame. That is a simple do-it-yourself job.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number* from the tag on the oven here.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

Then you unplug the keypad (as per the photo below) and move the circuit board into your frame.

No power to the oven, even LED not lit - gas range on top works OK 0 checked power to oven OK too.


Order part #W10017820 (do this first before you open up the range). While you are waiting for the part to arrivedown load the parts list from kitchenaid.com. When you have the part, Shut offpower to the range. Then remove part 9762612Vent, Center (pull the oven door toward you, you will see four screws). Before you proceed, place a stool with booksor a **** of paper or what ever it takes to equal the height of the bottom ofthe control panel. Then remove part 4457249Face, Control Panel (two screws, right and left, under panel). DO NOT DROP PANEL. The panel is connected via wires so please be careful. Set the panel on the raised surface that youcreated. Replace part W10017820. Replace control panel. Replacecenter vent. Restore power to unit. RP appears in display. Set clock. You're good to go.

Will not operate. displays f2


F2 means you have a shorted membrane keypad.

On some models, you can get the membrane keypad replaced by a servicer or your can do it yourself, but on some models, you would have to order a new control panel frame which comes with a new keypad.
