Question about KitchenAid Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

KitchenAid KERS507Y This is an old KitchenAid but, for its time, was top of the line. It is computerized with digital display. The convection/regular oven does not heat up even though the LED display says that it is working. I don't know if this is an thermostat, chip, sensor or whatever else problem and was wondering if you could help. I don't want to spend a lot of money online buying parts that are not the problem. Do you know of any way that I can diagnose this before I start spending money? Would like to do this myself (kinda handy) but need to do a process of elimination to find the problem. Thanks.

Need to check and see if you are getting 220 volts to the element or if the element is showing resistance with an ohm meter. Any resistance means it is ok. If you are not getting voltage to the elements and resistance is ok then the control board is bad. Note: Always check outlet for proper voltage first! Never know when a breaker has gone bad. Should have 220 volts from line 1 to line 2 and 110 volts from line 1 or line 2 to ground.

It could be the sensor. Remove the sensor and check for 1 to 1.1K ohms. at room temp. If that's not the problem it may be the oven solenoid on the burner. You can also have a problem with the door lock making when it shouldn't check that also.

I've got a Bosch oven and had the same problem.

I found that the thermostat might be to blame. In my case it was very simple - I opened up the back, and where the thermostat connects with wires, there was a little reset switch - and all I needed to do was push it in to reset, and it worked fine again.

I think it's a little protection device that activates when the temperature exceeds the thermostat's working capacity.

(I used to joke to friends that this is the button they put in so that technicians can simply reset and then charge you for the labour!)

Hope this helps some of you, if not everyone - just a pity that I only found this website today, and not in time for your Christmas dinners!

SOURCE: electrolux built in wall oven,

Hello stevefer

You said, Your Electrolux built in wall oven, lights and digital display work fine, fan works fine, but the oven will not heat regardless of the mode (broil, bake, convention roast, convection bake)

1.What is the Model Number and the year of your wall oven?
2.Did the oven light up and display with any error codes?
3. Did you try to turn the breaker off for 5 minutes to see if this will reset the system?

Perhaps the heating element is failing and may need to be replaced.
I will be able to better assist you when you reply with this information.
Waiting your response.

SOURCE: Viking Dual Fuel 6 Burner 48" OVEN DOES NOT HEAT

I hate self clean functions - If you think about it - you should too. These ranges are equipped with electronic components and running self clean at 950 degrees will more than likely burn something out. A lot of complaints are because of the self clean. It's not worth it to self clean than to clean it yourself. And 200 dollars is a great price for something like this if it includes parts and labor. Good luck.

SOURCE: I have a Jenn-Air Model # JER8885QCS range which

First off, check to see if it is still under warranty. You will need the Model #, and Serial # before you talk to the factory. The unit is either single phase (2 separate 120v circuits) or 3 phase, (3 separate 120v circuits) To check voltage properly you CANNOT check voltage to ground. You have to check wire to wire. you will get a reading of 208, or 240 volt. On a 3 phase, you need to check all 3 wires to each other, and MUST come up with either 208, or 240v between ALL wires.

Kitchenaid kera205pss convection oven feature not working

Beth, you either have a failed convection element, part number 9460769, possible bad terminal connection at the element or a failed oven control. A bad element is the most common failure. replacement instructions for a failed heater can be provided.

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.Are you waiting until it gets to the preheated temp? The fan don't come on until it reaches the temp you selected.So if you set it for 350 that's when the convection will come on..
