SOURCE: OVEN will not heat

After reading the above, here is how I fixed my KEBS177DSS9
I pulled out the wall oven from the cabnet. Took off the back tin panel about 10 tin screws. Follow the wire from both heating elements. They are both connected to a thermo fuse. When using the self clean feature this fuse protects the oven from over heating and starting a fire. I put a jumper wire from the hot lead on the left and connected it to the 2 leads on the right side. I turned the power back on and turn the oven on to bake at 350 degrees. Yep It worked like a charm. I bypassed the thermal fuse and used the oven, until the new thermal fuse was ordered. If you have any questions about this fix email me at jodunn5555@aol.com Good luck

SOURCE: kitchenaid KEBC177 electric convection oven will not heat

This is a design flaw in the Kitchenaid convection ovens. I can help fix this problem if you have a built in oven (I don't know if the parts are located in the same place for stand alone ovens). First it is not a FUSE that has blown rather it is the thermostat in the rear of the oven. (Part #4452223) This small part cost about $37 US and after shipping it will cost you about $47. I tried to get an estimate from an electrician as to what they would charge for the part and to come out and fix the oven an the price was about $90 for the part and anywhere between $100 and $170 more for the service call + repair! After a day of frustration I decided to tackle the problem myself.

The very first thing you must do is shut off the circuit breaker to the oven and put a very large sign on the panel that reads DO NOT TOUCH! That is 220 volts to that oven and while most panels have just the oven ont circuit you dont want anyone reactivating that circuit by mistake!

The next part requires a little work. Find the side panel screws (usually located in the oven door) and remove the two panel flanges that cover the 2 or 4 mounting screws that keep the oven in the wall. Now go underneath the oven and find the power junction box, take off the cover and disconnect the wires that run from the oven. Remember which goes where. Next remove the little nut that holds the electical conduit cable to the junction box then loosen the wires. Once this is done you can now slide the oven out and get to the thermostat.

This part requires a little elbow grease. Find a platform or table that fits just under where the stove will slide out and slide the oven on top of the table or whatever for support. In the back of the oven there will be a sheet metal panel that covers the thermostat and other wires, remove the 5 or 6 screws that hold this panel on and put the panel aside. Almost in the middle of the oven's back you will see a little black device with two wires running out of it (one red the other white or yellow). It will have the part number on its front, remove the wire and notice that the thermostat is half red and half white (remember this for the new part will have the same markings) the red wire goes onto the lead coming from the red markings. When you have the new part simply put the new one in (remember: the red side to the red wire), attach it to the back of the oven, replace the sheet metal cover and slide the oven back into place securing it with the screws. Viola! you are done! Turn on the power and then test the oven (I used the broil setting to warm it up then switch to a temperature setting). The entire process took me about an hour and I am NOT a handyman!

For about $50 and a little work you will save yourself from $150 to $250. Not to mention the repairmen won't have a clue as to what the problem is or who will attempt to sell you a new front panel or perform other unnecessary work.

SOURCE: My KitchenAid Supra self cleaning convection wall

There is a overload thermostat on the rear of the oven that will have to be replaced.
Self cleaning features are not recommended by most appliance technicians.
Self cleaning causes parts to fail often.

SOURCE: OVEN will not heat

KitchenAid KEBC107KSS does not heat hot enough and does not heat evenly. When the temperature is dialed higher, it burns the cookies. When the convection fan is on, it has a 'cooling effect' so the temperature never reaches the proper level. Is this problem repairable? Or is this a thermostat issue? Thank you for your help!

Microwave is not make food hot


Hi.

The wave emitting part inside the microwave oven is called the magnetron. The waves emitted by the magnetron generate heat in food. When the microwave is running, turntable turns and light comes on but there is no heat it means that either the magnetron is faulty or the magnetron is not getting power. When the magnetron is not getting power parts such as the high voltage diode or capacitor must be tested or replaced. Testing and repair must be carried by a technician. Here some general troubleshooting: http://www.fixya.com/support/r2096491-microwave_works_normally_but_not_heat

The bracket which holds the ceiling heating element up in the microwave broke so now the heating element is hanging down into the microwave cavity. How do I get a replacement part and is it easy to...


The brackets are usually made of heat resistant plastic, or bakalite, you can search for parts at www.whitegoods.co.uk but you will need model and serial number, a word of caution, the microwave oven may have to be dismanteled to fix new element holders, you can still get shocks from them even though the mains power has been disconnected, depending on the age of the appliance and availability of parts, it may be a replacement is required.
Hope this has been helpful

The heating element becomes red hot,but the food doesn't appear to cook in an appropriate time os fashion. Any answers or suggestions


The top of whatever food you're cooking should be in the center of the oven for the most effective cooking. Do you have the oven set on bake or broil? Broil is a direct heat method and if the food is on the lower shelf and the oven is set on broil, the food is not getting enough heat to cook it properly. Baking heats the lower element and the heat rises to surround the food. Broiling heats the top element and since heat rises, it is not getting down to the food to surround it and cook it.

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!

Kitchenaid KEMS308 display is saying "enter probe temp or remove probe" No probe is plugged in or has been used in a while. This message came up after cooking for about 3 1/2 hours at 300 degrees. Now...


Apparently this is to do with moisture having affected the oven adversely (I got this error message after baking 50 potatoes with all the steam that generated. Have a look at this page http://www.howtomendit.com/answers.php?id=162257 ....the solution is to set the probe for 160F then turn the oven on for 15 minutes or so at 450F. This apparently should dry out the probe position and all work again.....I am trying it now.....

Goldstar ma-1012W microwave oven doesn't heat food


Sounds like a bad magnetron (the device that produces the microwaves) - if the microwave is over 6-8 years old, it's usually not worth fixing.

KitchenAid Wall and Microwave Oven Combo - KEMS308SSS


Have had this oven for 8 years. At least three times, usually after using the clean cycle in the main oven, the latch mechanism has broke and the oven door will not open. In March they installed a 'new design' to prevent this. It's seven months later, and it broke again. Has anyone had similar experiences? How did you resolve?
