Question about KitchenAid KGRC608LSS Gas Kitchen Range
Hope someone can help,
The electronic display on our Kitchenaid Gas Range is stuck in the "Temperature Probe" mode. It's asking us to enter the probe temperature, eventhough we don't want to use it. We tried unplugging the stove hoping it would reset it, but no luck. Does anyone know the solution?
Thanks in advance,
We had the same problem, and we tricked it into running it's cycle be doing the following;
1. Wrap a wet paper towel around the probe, plug it in, and close the door. Then follow the temp. probe directions in the manual:
2. Set probe temp. at 130 degrees, then select a bake cycle. We selected convect bake.
3. Set oven temp for 275 degrees, but maybe any temp over the probe temp would work.
4. Then start. The cycle took 12 minutes to complete, and when it was finished, turn the oven off and then open the door and unplug the probe.
5. Now everything works fine.

There is a "normalling" contact in the jack the lets the oven know you plugged in your probe.
Infrequent use of the probe, allows a film to build up on the contacts, fooling your oven to believe the probe is inserted.
As these contacts are self cleaning though use, all you need to do is plug your probe in and out several times and it should work fine.
Don't, plug anything other than the probe into the jack, as you might bend the leaf contacts inside and it wont work.

This is similar to above solutions, but may provide deeper cleaning, and worked for me. Try inserting a wooden food skewer deep into the jack, and carefully rotate it around to clean the jack. Careful that the skewer doesn't break off, though.

This happened on our Kitchenaid electric stove/oven as well! I unplugged the oven, opened up the outside panel of the oven (same side as the temp probe jack) and found a small metal tab adjacent to the jack. I opened that up to reveal the jack surrounded by moist fiberglass sheeting. A boiling pot of beans had over-flowed on that side of the range the day before. Moisture had gotten down in there and was crossing the connections. Once I dried off the exposed metallic parts and moved the moist fiberglass away from the connections, problem went away. Hopefully, a good self-cleaning cycle will dry up that moisture.

I had this problem with the oven displaying the probe symbol even when no probe was inserted and asking to set the probe temp. I removed the side panel and disconnected the leads to the probe socket. Problem fixed, I don´t use the probe anyway. It seems to me that the probe socket had a short and if I wanted to use the probe I would replace the socket.

Hi all- I too had the same problem. Believe it or not I used my IPOD ear nubs/phones. I only used the RF connector piece. I took off the plastic then stuck the headphone jack in where you would connect the meat probe and problem solved. I hope this helps
