Question about KitchenAid KESS908SPS Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Stopped during self clean--already replaced thermal fuse---it appears cooling fan was never connected, and it does not work once connected. All other functions appear to work, except power to the fan

The wire to connect the cooling fan was loose in the oven upon initial removal of fan and even scorched and melted to the oven casing and the fan is so clean, it must never have worked in the four years we have owned the range. The fan does work when attached to outside power source.

Is the control panel completely dead?? If the cooling fan under the cooktop was not working, in most cases the main control board or control transformer if it is separate will get heat damaged and need replaced. That cooling fan is there to keep everything from over heating mainly during clean but should come on during normal baking if it gets too hot under the cooktop.

Conair hair dryer 1002axa stopped working


The thermal cut-out on hair dryers is usually self-resetting, the device will restore power once the unit cools down... Most of these types of problems are due to lint clogging the air intake and causing overheating, be sure to clean the intake before attempting a repair.

Kenmore wall oven self clean 2005 neither element works. Shortly after we did a self clean cycle.


Many Kenmores were made by Whirlpool and these are notorious for tripping the thermal fuse. They are not usually not resetable and must be replaced. If there is a button to reset it then it should stay down. It is probably bad. Without a multimeter you could connect the wires together and isolate them from shorting against any metal by using electrical tape and temporarily powering up the unit to see if the elements start to heat. if they do then replace the thermal fuse and reconnect the wires properly. Just be careful.

It has nothing to do with the tight fit.
It has everything to do with self-cleaning on ovens.
The thermal fuse blows due to extreme temperatures.
Replace the fuse to use the oven.
Use an oven cleaner to clean the oven OR replace more fuses in the future.

Thermal protection fuse has started burning out when oven self-cleans. Ran fine for years, now this has started happening. Not every time it self-cleans, but have now replaced second fuse in 2 years. Is...


Hi,

The most common reason for this is the door not sealing properly, if hot air escapes out the seal during the clean cycle it will be pulled across the thermal fuse.

The second most common cause is reduced air flow. If the blower wheel is dirty it cannot move as much air across the fuse to keep that area cool, if the vents just above and below the door are dirty and dusty they can block air flow too.

Oven won't heat


Unplug the power cord for thirty minutes, this should reset the oven.
If this still does not work do the following:
Press clean and then cancel. This will reset the appliance.

If the error does not clear , then during the self cleaning cycle, the high temperature has probably damaged the temperature sensor probe, and it must be replaced.

Whirlpool rbd275pdb double wall oven died during self clean


The first time we used our Whirlpool oven the same thing happened - no power and yet the circuit breaker was not blown. I called Whirlpool, and they sent out a technician to check it out as it was still under warranty. He said the temperature was off (too hot) by 20F - he adjusted. He also replaced the blower. What he did not tell me was that the thermal fuse had blown, and he replaced it - this was the REAL cause for the failure. I got the impression that he did not want to let me in on the secret. He did not note on the paperwork that he replaced the thermal fuse. Last week I decided to run the oven through the self-cleaning cycle (the oven is now 8-1/2 yrs old) - I don't believe that we cleaned the oven but a couple of times since the first time that it was "repaired." I used the default 3-1/2 hour setting. Everything appeared to be fine - the oven went through the cleaning cycle with no apparent problems. The display now read "cool down" - I went to bed thinking everything was okay. I got up the next morning only to find out that the power was out. I called Whirlpool and demanded that they repair the unit again as they clearly never fixed it correctly in the first place. They offered me 15% off on a new oven - WHOOPEE! I asked to speak with the supervisor - he did not budge either. I was upset, and I told him that I would NEVER purchase a Whirlpool appliance again! I decided to tear into the oven to see if I could detect anything wrong. I pulled out the front panel - everything looked okay. I then noticed the "thermal fuse" - I did not know what it was called at the time, but it looked familiar. I checked voltage on either side of the fuse and found the voltage to be zero on the downstream side of the fuse. I pulled it out and read the information on the device: Microtemp 110C. I called a local appliance repair shop - they told me that it would cost $50 to purchase a new fuse! I told them that seemed very high. I ended up stopping at Radio Shack. They have thermal fuses in various temperature and voltage ranges. I got a 144C 10A fuse and carefully soldered the connectors to it and replaced the protective plastic sleeve. I actually bypassed the thermal fuse in order to use the oven before I found the replacement fuse. While it is a good idea to have a protection device for the slim chance that an oven may malfunction by overheating, it is not a necessity for the functionality of the oven. Hopefully, the thermal fuse will not fail during my next attempt to self-clean the oven. I do have a concern about the 10 amp rating, but I'm sure that it will work fine.

Oven shut down during Self-cleaning


tde, sounds like your thermal fuse (TC0) opened on the back side of the oven. If this opens, it will shut the oven down. This happens alot during self cleaning on built ins. Sometimes I have to re-route the tco to a different area to prevent this from happening. Your part number is 4451442. You will have to pull the oven out far enough to remove the back paneling and replace the fuse....Catriver..post back.
