    The design of the simmer switch is faulty. When the burner is on, full current is going by the switch. When you turn the simmer switch on, the full current flows through the switch and can't handle it. It blows the switch. You have to turn the burner off, turn the simmer switch on, turn the burner back on, then the simmer switch won't blow. How does anyone cook like this, I don't know? Just a marvel engineering effort on Whirlpool's part. There's supposed to be a beefier simmer switch to replace it but I don't know the part number.

I have a kitchenaid YKESS907SS00 and the front display and all functions of the oven do not work. The range works fine. I need help to troubleshoot what is wrong with this darn thing.


I brought the schematic remove the front panel be sure to unplug if you know to use a meter you need to check continuity thru the thermal cutoff and thermal switch if one is found to be open then there is no power going to the control board

One burner on Kera205pbt won't heat


Just to be clear, the burner does not heat at all? Is this the small or large burner? Swap the burner with another one to see if it is the burner itself or the infinite switch. Post back your results.

Hello,
It would seem like reasonable thing to do.However the adjustment is typically for the low setting so you can adjust just the small flame just enough to simmer a pot without the flame going out from being so low its susuptable to going out on the low setting, also it so you can adjust the flame smaller so on low it isnt too high,causing it will boil when you intend to only simmer a dish your cooking. A question;is it all burners and have they always been that way?

All power was lost after spark from oven light.


It sounds like it has thrown the breaker on your distribution board or a fuse if there is one. Remove the oven lamp and replace fuse or reset breaker. Don't forget to switch off the main switch before you remove/replace the lamp.
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
I appreciate your vote if you appreciate my reply.

What is a simmer button on the kitchenaid glass top stove for? You can email me at debbieeidschun@gmail.com


'Simmer' allows a finer control over that burner.

F2e0 error on stove


"cycle the circuit breakers" is to turn the switch for the stove at the electric switch box at the main feed of the house electric panel. This is equivalent to unplugging the stove and plugging it back in.

In the old days, a circuit breaker was a "fuse" in the "fuse box"...

My front burner not working.


Check to see that your simmer switch is in the off position, I just had the same problem and checked it back to the power connector and only had 120 V ????, I about to take the switch out and then saw the simmer switch that I never noticed. Clicked it to off and now my wife is happy again. Good Luck, hope your solution is just as easy.
