Question about KitchenAid KGST307 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Sef clean button won't work on touch pad... all other buttons work fine.

Why will Kitchenaid not admit to this problem? UNBELIEVABLE... I have had not one, but TWO Kitchenaid ranges since October 2005. I (thankfully) purchased an extended warranty through the store we bought the range from, we had over ten visits from service technicians. I had the circuit board replaced three times, the grates replaced twice and the oven door replaced once. When it locked and would not open after I attempted to clean it, the warranty company refused to do any more work on the stove, as it was costing them more than we had paid for the extended warranty. It took threats of lawsuits and a fight with a Western Regional Manager to get a new stove, even though the warranty company recommended replacement. When I called to request documentation of all the repairs to my stove, only HALF of the service calls were on record. November 6, 2007 our new stove was delivered, (a full THREE MONTHS after the door locked and would not open) same model as the last one, (KGSS907PBL) just a bit newer design. I went to turn on the self clean tonight... brave soul I am! THE BUTTON WILL NOT WORK! I am wondering if they have disconnected this somehow on the cicuit board so I cannot use it? Everything else has worked to date, other than some mysterious error codes (same as the last one) on the third day after we plugged it in. They have not reappeared. I am calling Kitchenaid in the morning, because, as we all know none of us have anything better to do with our time than sit on hold for hours on end, and then entertain a technician for at least three visits... 1. the diagnosis, 2. the first attempt at repair with the wrong parts... and then 3. the final repair... that will only last until my next clean!!! The store has a no lemon warranty (if it is repaired three times for the same problem within the warranty period it will be replced), so I recommend to everyone, if you have this at your disposal, break the thing three times and get a new one, and then buy the extended warranty on the new stove when you get it and do the same thing over and over again. If it costs Kitchenaid a few thousand new stoves instead of a few thousnad new fuses, maybe they will fix this issue.

    As a follow up, actually this is my THIRD range, as the first one was delivered damaged and had to be replaced... forgot that until now. They all have had circuit board issues. The first one would not stay on, kept trying to turn on by itself, and beeped incessantly. I had to unplug it before I went to bed each night, or it would turn on in the middle of the night! Tried to post at the kitchenaid website forums, but it wont allow me to create an account??? I am so tired, so very tired of fighting corporations...

Sounds like you have quite the problem. i have had a similar experience with this model and also the 906 or 908 models. can you tell me what error messages if any you get?

the reason the door locked is for safety reasons, due to the fact that the oven gets up to 1100 degrees.

i would recommend to stay way from this model, as the quality of the components has gone down, specifically to do with the circuit boards.

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.

Kitchenaid superba kgsc308lssc keypad not working


Hello Ron,
On that touch pad not working do any button at all work?? its not a uncommon thing for the touch pad to quit working,in some case its just a matter of making sure the plug on it has a good connection where it plugs into the control board. If certain button work while others don't its a sign that the control board itself is good and the problem lies within the touch pad and it would need to be replaced. It may possible as to clean the connection of the ribbon cable on the touch pad by using a pencil eraser and try cleaning the ends of the ribbon cable,again if that doesn't work the touch pad would need need to be replaced . On that model the touch pad is integrated onto the control console and the part number for it is 9782418CB just so ya know its pricey (over $200 )
Good luck,GENE

KitchenAid range ProLine series kesv908 and ykesv908 Oven desplay comes up with err button stuck F2EO


Hi barbsofarell,

The error F2 - E0 code means a shorted keypad (also called touch pad). Please follow the steps below to correct the problem.

1. Check keypad connector for firm connection (keypad connects to control board).

2. Press CANCEL. If error code returns after 60 seconds, replace keypad (also called touch pad or membrane switch). Some models incorporate keypad in to control board as one unit. In this case, replace control board (also called ERC or clock).

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Kitchenaid Superba Gas Oven Touch Pad not working


We have a gas kitchenaid KGST307HBL9 and the touch pad is blank, but we discovered that you can still touch the buttons and it will work. (example touch bake; temperature; start). It will beep when the target temperature is reached.

Just so we don't forget and leave the oven on, we turn the oven light on as our signal. A little work, but not wanting to "fork" out the money at this time to repair.

Also, if you are handy RepairClinic.com has many items and can also answer question. We've used them for several of our appliance repairs.
