KitchenAid Oven Temp.- Bottomside of Pizza or Cake stays uncooked

Never buy Kitchen Aid Appliances...Its Customer Service stinks and is the worst no support talk about buying the CAdillac and paying premium price... I wish we didn't go for this brand appliances especially the Architect Series II - 27" built-in Micowave/Oven combo Model: KEM378SSS00. The bottom convection oven never worked right and it doesn't bake evenly i.e., cake or pizza... we're stuck with the problem
with no recourse. The bottom of pizzas appear to come out as raw and so is the baking.of cake not uniformly turning brown..can anyone help??

I have a 2yo Kitchenaid oven, and my advice is first, don't use convection for cakes or pizza. Use the thermal oven. For pizza preheat to 500 degrees, then put the pizza on the lowest rack, and bake for 7-8 minutes.This way the bottom browns, and the top doesn't get broiled from the top element coming on during the bake cycle.

As for cakes, again place them on the low rack so that they get bottom heat. I keep my eye on the oven and when the broil element comes on I stick a piece of foil over the cake until it goes off. Otherwise it will set the top and the cake won't rise as much. Even doing that cakes don't rise as much as they did in my old oven, and they brown too much on top.

The convection oven does a good job of cookies, and the broil mode is okay.

I wish I hadn't bought this oven, but I didn't know about the upper (broil) element coming on during the bake cycle until I'd had it for awhile, and it was too late to return it.

If anyone's shopping for an oven, ask questions, and don't get one that maintains the oven temperature by activating the broil element when baking.

It is a free standing kitchen aid oven. I put it on quick self clean and it said it would end at 2:00. The panel went blank at 1:20 and it is past 2:00 and it is still locked. I checked the circuit br


Unfortunately KitchenAid ovens notoriously blow a thermal fuse when you use the self cleaning cycle, and if you're lucky that's all that happened. Hopefully your oven is still under warranty. If so, call KitchenAid customer service and they will repair it for free.

If you're handy you can check/replace the thermal fuse yourself (requires pulling out the oven and taking off the back panel, finding and replacing the fuse- be sure to turn off power and gas first).

there is a thermal fuse in the back or on top of the oven that is blown. its designed to blow if the oven gets too hot. you will have to remove the oven from the wall to check it. thats probably why kitchen aid wants to send someone out.

We installed kitchen aid microwave convection oven model kems308. it is displaying error code F6E0, "Lost communication". Any idea on how to fix?


Turn the power to the oven off. It usually is not possible to unplug the power chord for the built-in appliances so go to the main switch board and just turn off the oven power for about 5 minutes and then turn on the switch. The error code should disappear. Mine did!

I have a Kitchen Aid oven, model #KEBS107DWH2 and the hinges are "sprung" so the door will not close all the way to turn off the oven door sensor, unless you prop something up against the door. That said,...


You are very lucky if that machine lasted as long as it has. if you replaced those hinges in 2007 that's 10 years. The last one i bought they said we will be lucky if we get five to ten years out of the new one. Unless you want to put money in this one its probably cheaper to buy a new one in the long run.
They could not care less if you tell them you won't buy anything from them again. I had a large company official tell me that.

Hello. look in the yellow pages of your phone book for appliance repair. Find a store that sells or repairs kitchen aid. There are several possible causes for the problems you site. Only a trained repairman with the proper scanners and tools can isolate and fix your oven.

Kitchen aid oven is'nt working and giving code F2:E3 help what does it mean


Here is a page with all of the error codes for your oven.

http://www.appliancetimers.com/index.php?page=failure_code_page&manufacturer=ka&type=r

Your code is 2 parts, F2 is oven temp is too high, and the E0 wants you to test the relay contact operation. In simpler language make sure the connections are tight.
