Re: kitchenaid oven

Jump the fuse to 25 and see if it still happens, if it does it has an internal short.

Kitchen aid gas range model kgsa906pss. After using self clean oven door is locked and control panel is out. There is power through the thermal fuse. What else should I check?

Try unplugging the unit for about 10 minutes and then plugging it back in. If the problem persists call for service especially if under warranty.

KitchenAid Electric Range Model KESA907PSS02 surface elements and oven all stopped producing heat after initially being 'on'

You might have blown the thermal fuse. Here is a diagram of your unit.
The fuse is number 37 on the diagram. Check it for continuity. Here is the part to order in case it is bad.
Keep me posted.

We have a Kitchen Aid Superba Oven/Microwave combination AFter the cleaning cycle, the oven door will not open

This is not an easy repair but if you and another person are strong, it won't be too bad. You must remove the unit from the wall and take the back off the oven. You will find a high limit thermal fuse in the center of the oven that will have 2 wires hooked to it on either side. This will be the problem child. Replace this fuse and reinstall unit in wall. Make sure to clean the vent in the front under the door to insure that it is free from lint or insulation that would block or slow the airflow into the unit. This air keeps the unit from over heating during self clean.

Oven door locked

Your high limit thermal fuse has blown. Pull the range out and unplug it. Pull the back panel off and in the center of the oven you will find the thermal fuse. It will have 2 wires hooked to it on either side. This will be the problem child. If it is bad, it will show a broken circuit or no continuity. Replace this fuse if it reads bad (which it most likely will) and reinstall unit. Make sure to clean the vent in the front to insure that it is free from lint or insulation that would block or slow the airflow into the unit. This air keeps the unit from over heating during self clean.

Inoperable KGRE801PBS00 Kitchenaid oven

1) unplug and turn your gas valve off
2) with a #2 phillips remove all the silver screw on the back of your stove (this will make is to you can remove the stainless splashguard)
3) there are several black screw holding on a removable (stainless) panel that covers the back of the stove - your culprit (thermal fuse) is under here).
4) on the back of the oven you'll see the back of a couple of fixtures (stove light, temp sensor etc). <-- do not touch these..
5) there is another attachment (attached with black #2 robertson screws).. it has two black wires plugged into it.. this is your thermal fuse - mine has a number 8300802 on it.

I had to replace this (18bucks) from my local hardware store. Unfortunately, these stupid ovens have this part recurring so buy a few.

At your own risk - when reinstalling, slip a little cardboard between the thermal fuse sensor (stainless flat side) and the stove.. you may save a few headaches..

this repair was an easy one compared to replacing the board on this stupid oven.. (i would not recommend buying one - typical north american engineering designed to keep the repair folks working)..

i guess you need to find a different way to screw the consumer eh KitchenAid? lol

have fun

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.
