Kitchenaid KGSA906PSS00 I did the self clean mode on my kitchenaid and after it had finished the oven diplay panel shut of (blank) and the doors remain locked. I cannot get the control panel to work and have tried to reset as told to by kitchenaid with shutting our breaker off for 5 min then turning off again. I hear this has been a common kitchenaid problem any help?

    Exactly the same happened to us. Set the self-clean to 3 hours, left house and returned 24 hours later. Dead panel and locked oven door. When I pulled on oven door glass panel shattered.
    First question is how do I reset the panel?
    Second question is there any warranty on any of the parts I may have to purchase?
    Third question once panel is reset should I clean oven manually?

    I have shut the breakers at the mains, then turned them back on. Door still locked and panel is still dead

    I had the exact same thing happen. I set the oven for the cleaning cycle and the range shut down during the cycle, the display went blank, and the door remained locked. luckily I have an extended warrantee so the serviceman replaced a thermal fuse at the back of the oven and had to replace the door lock mechanism, too. Evidently, when the oven shut down, it caused the door lock mechanism to break, too. I did not have to pay but the service receipt I received from him had a bill of nearly $300.00

    I did the self clean mode on my kitchenaid oven for 3 hours.

    When I came home the display was blank & the door was locked.

    Fortunately we have a 5 year warranty. I'm about to call our kitchenaid

    I have a kitchenaide dual fuel range, bought 8/06 (model KDRP467KSS09), and I have replaced the thermal fuse 2 x in the last 6 months -- just from normal use, not even the self-cleaning! I'm in a condo complex, and a number of other people with the same unit have the same problem! I'm just starting to look into the depth/breadth of problem, and will contact manufactuer.

    We had the same exact thing happen to us. The first time I used the self clean the whole panel shut down and locked. We called a local person to fix it - he is here now so I am not sure how much it will cost since he has to order a part. If there is something we can do about this I would like to know. If there is a flaw in the design, why should we have to suffer? We paid good money for these ovens and we should expect them to work properly.

    Just tried to self clean the oven in the home we recently moved into. Sure wish I had read this post before! Same problem here.

    I repalced the themal fuse twicw. This oven is a lemon.

  • Anonymous Dec 12, 2008

    This oven is worse than a lemon! We have had 6+ service calls in 3 years. Now, we're stuck with the same problem posted here - tried to self-clean today and the display panel shut down and oven doors are locked. Unfortunately, I think our warranty was only for one year which they extended for 2 because of all the problems but now we're out of luck. What a waste of money.

I recently encountered this issue after trying "self clean" on my KitchenAid oven for the first time. I wish I had read these forums and simply avoided the feature. KitchenAid was, of course, completely unhelpful since my warranty was expired. This is the first they've heard of the problem; perhaps search engines are prohibited within the KitchenAid community and they are unable to view the complaints of thousands of other customers as I have... but I digress.

The solution was straight forward: Don't worry about the locked door for now and pull the oven away from the wall. Safety first: unplug your oven and turn off your gas valve. Now remove the back panel. There is a sheet metal strip near the top of the oven that must be removed before the back panel comes loose. With the back panel removed, look for a circular device with a blue and white sticker on it and the part number: 8300802. This is a thermal fuse that blows when the oven gets too hot (apparently "too hot" is a subjective measure as normal operation during self clean will cause this issue). You can check it with a multimeter if you have one... a failed fuse will have a high resistance. To ensure this is your only issue and to immediately unlock your door, adventurous types can bypass the fuse by connecting the two wires that connect to the fuse and hold them together with some electrical tape. WARNING: never operate your oven in this manner. This is a quick test to verify resolution of the issue; not a permanent fix. Apply power to your oven and presto, your door will unlock and your front panel will illuminate.

Now, use the aforementioned search engine KitchenAid has never heard of and search for your new fuse: 8300802. I got mine for $34... you can probably find it for cheaper but my patience was wearing thin by the time I got to ordering a replacement part.

Oh, and one last step: never ever under any circumstances use the self clean feature. Do not take the easy route like I did: get your Brillo Pad and your Easy-Off and get dirty, you lazy bum.

Sorry to hear that. Same thing happened to me. To get the door open, look deep in the space in the top latch area above the door handle as you pull the door out to the lock stop. You'll see a metal tab swinging from side to side. I stuck a coat hanger in there to hold it to the side while pulling on the door, and got it to open.

As far as the reason for the "dead oven" problem, there's a thermal fuse that shuts off power to the control panel. If you're a fix-it guy, turn off the power, pull out the oven, and remove the top panel. You'll see a wiring diagram taped to the inside of the top electrical cavity, which shows where the control panel thermal fuse it (Pin 1 of connector P4 I think). That's probably blown, and can be replaced.

Additionally, you may have to replace the over-temp fuse on the oven that was being cleaned (at least that's what's happening to me). Both can be easily checked by checking for connectivity thru the fuse. It will elther show all or nothing. Nothing means get a new one.

Good luck...

Hazscreenid YOU ARE THE MAN! I know this is an old thread but i just used my self clean on the same kitchen aid model that i purchased in 2006 and guess what happened... I dare ya... Yeppers it shut down, door is locked and control panel is off. When i googled kitchen aid model number self cleaning problem hahahaha i couldn't believe it!

Set it to clean again. Wait a minute and then hit the cancel button twice with a couple of seconds in between. With a little luck it might work.

My KitchenAid Supra double oven shut down completely while in self cleaning mode. Control panel is completely blank & oven door is locked

when you put it into self clean the oven gets up to 1000 degrees and it will damage the electronics in the oven and it sounds like this happened to you,i've been telling everyone i know not to do this until after the holidays in case something like this happens you won't have a stove for the holidays and also i tell them to never use the self clean use easy off works just as good,sorry to hear about you stove,if this is an older stove most likely you won't be able to even get a new clock assy. but you can send your old clock assy. out to get rebuilt to
you either do this yourself or get someone to remove the old clock assy. make a wire diagram,send the clock assy. out to have it rebuilt they send it back to you and you reinstall it and don't use the self clean more thing i think there's a thermal fuse in the ka and that could have popped,you have to check it with a meter hope this helps and good luck.

My kitchenaid range touch pad won't work- no errors displayed, can't turn oven on

careful here. The board needs to be replaced and can cost as much as $300 to $500. Half the cost of a new range. They also have been known to turn on the cleaning mode when baking. Then the oven door locks and cannot get in. Then what ever you have in the oven really gets black and starts a fire. This happened to me a while back. Had to shut off the range breaker and wait til the oven cooled of to open door. Really smelled. Had to buy a new oven because we could not get the burned smell out. I would suggest not to use the oven til new board is installed. Or buy new oven. We bought a AQUALIFT clean oven. It cleans at 250 degrees. Not the high temp of 500 degrees plus.

We have a kitchen aid KGSA906PSS00 gas range. for the first time today the wife decided to run the self clean function. At some point through the self clean the oven shut off and the control panel died....

Sounds like my problem two days ago. I have a Kitchen Aid free standing gas oven/range model
KGRI801PWH00. I read online that the thermo-fuse might've blown. I found the thermo-fuse after removing the rear panel. It was at the top/center. Mine is T-O-D (brand) 60F24; Westinghouse #8300802. I ordered mine from for only $34.75; arrived in 36 hrs with regular shipping!! Easy to fix, sure beats several hundred $$ to repairman.

Don't bother to call Kitchen Aid - they'll just blow you off just like the hundreds of complaints said that I found online.

After self cleaning the range the door won't open....
The oven door lock needs approximately 1 hour to cool down before the oven door can be opened after a self cleaning cycle has finished. If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. 2) Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door.

Hope this may help;

Kitchen aid model# kgri801pbs

On most models, the door stays locked during a self clean, until the temperature returns to normal for safety reasons.

It sounds like your unit may have tripped a breaker during this self clean event. Check your panel for a tripped breaker. If the oven has cooled down, and the lock is still engaged, then we may have a different problem.

Let me know what you find out!
