Question about KitchenAid KERC507 Electric Kitchen Range
After running the self clean cycle on our KitchenAid Superba KERC507HBT0 oven, the oven would not heat. I traced that problem to the thermal fuse, replaced it, and that fixed the "would not heat" problem. The problem that I am having now is that the temperature will not regulate. I checked the ohm reading on the oven temperature sensor and it is running about 1085 ohms, so that sounds about right. What else should I check as the source of this high heat?
The ohm's on the temp sensor is adequate if measured at normal room temperature. Next check the wiring from the sensor connector to the control board for continuity. Also verify there isn't any corrosion on the connection to the board. If that is good, visually inspect the control board for burnt areas as that will be the only other component in that function. This control board is NLA but you may find one stashed in someone's old inventory.

I've had the same problem and have had the thermo-protector switch replaced four times. After the last time I was so ********** I wrote to the CEO at Whirpool/Kitchen Aid in Benton Harbor, MI with my complaint. Today I received a call from an extremely nice lady in his office who said that they were sending me an updated kit for repair free of charge. The part number is 9759243. She offered that this was a known problem but was limited to just one production run - my luck!
If you are having this problem with your KGSA906PSS write to the CEO at Whirlpool!

We have a gas kitchenaid KGST307HBL9 and the touch pad is blank, but we discovered that you can still touch the buttons and it will work. (example touch bake; temperature; start). It will beep when the target temperature is reached.
Just so we don't forget and leave the oven on, we turn the oven light on as our signal. A little work, but not wanting to "fork" out the money at this time to repair.
Also, if you are handy RepairClinic.com has many items and can also answer question. We've used them for several of our appliance repairs.

1) unplug and turn your gas valve off
2) with a #2 phillips remove all the silver screw on the back of your stove (this will make is to you can remove the stainless splashguard)
3) there are several black screw holding on a removable (stainless) panel that covers the back of the stove - your culprit (thermal fuse) is under here).
4) on the back of the oven you'll see the back of a couple of fixtures (stove light, temp sensor etc). <-- do not touch these..
5) there is another attachment (attached with black #2 robertson screws).. it has two black wires plugged into it.. this is your thermal fuse - mine has a number 8300802 on it.
I had to replace this (18bucks) from my local hardware store. Unfortunately, these stupid ovens have this part recurring so buy a few.
At your own risk - when reinstalling, slip a little cardboard between the thermal fuse sensor (stainless flat side) and the stove.. you may save a few headaches..
this repair was an easy one compared to replacing the board on this stupid oven.. (i would not recommend buying one - typical north american engineering designed to keep the repair folks working)..
i guess you need to find a different way to screw the consumer eh KitchenAid? lol
