Question about KitchenAid KGRA806PSS Gas Kitchen Range
In the past week, I've noticed that the "Start?" query is no longer displayed on my control panel when I start the oven. In addition, I'm finding that the oven is not reaching temperature as confirmed with a separate oven thermometer, although the control panel indicates so. Also, if I have the door open for a few moments, I note that although the control panel displayed 350F at the moment I opened the door, the temperature displays drops drastically to something like 240F and starts to climb again. I hear the burners igniting and the temperature is more in line with what the separate oven thermometer reads.
I think all this started when I forgot to hit the start button once. what's up with all this? Any thought?
SOURCE: stove burners won't ignoite
just to be clear I am assuming that you can in fact see a spark traveling from the ignitor to the metal surface over where the gas should be expelled... that being the case you must remove the the gas burner from the stove and check for damage or sign of deterioration ie: cracks, rust holes, missing sections etc. more than likely if there is no damage after 7 years of use the problem will be in the form of carbon and rust deposits inside the burner pieces or associated piping (pipe that are in the burning side of the system don't tear into the gas side) *NOTE THIS WILL NOT KEEP GAS FROM COMING OUT BUT MAY PREVENT IT FROM EXITING IN THE PROPER PLACES DESIGNED FOR LIGHTING* you can clean these carbon deposits by tipping the open end face down and tapping the burner pieces with a block of wood or similar device. These deposits should fall out as a heavy black or reddish brown dust you can also try vacuuming it and running an appropriately size drill bit through each of the burner holes to clean them as well or you can probably just purchase a new one by ordering it from the place you bought the stove

the hi-limit thermostat has been tripped. it needs to be replaced and also make sure that the cooling fan is working ok. thermostat is located behind the back panel. looks like a disk the size of a quarter with two wires on it

Solution #3 was very helpful. Took off the back panel and found the small black fuse. Removed the fuse and joined the two black wires, oven now turns on and oven door opens. Don't think it would be to safe to leave like this but going to get the part and put the fuse back in myself. Very easy to fix (just a million screws) so save yourself the expensive service charge!!!!
