Question about KitchenAid KEBC107 Electric Single Oven

OVEN will not heat

I have a single OVEN KitchenAid Architect Series KEBC107KSS. Recently, after my wife used the self cleaning cycle, the oven quit heating. Everything else works. The control panel beeps normally and the proper indicators and lights light up when the functions are pushed. The convection fan in the back wall of the oven turns. But, we cannot get any heat. I suspect a sensor or thermostat of some type. Any suggestions on where to trouble shoot?

I have a built in kitchenaid oven which I have had for over a year.. Ran the self clean cycle yesterday. Now the oven won't heat. I can't believe how many people have had this same problem. It sounds like we will be replacing the thermal fuse thermostat. Any details on how to do this?

    Exactly the same problem, after the very first self cleaning no heat...bake or broil, yet everything appears to function correctly. Wall oven model KEBC147KSS06. At least I'm not alone with this issue!

    I have exactly the same problem. Does anybody have a solution? Ours is a built in unit.

    We have had the same problem, twice now. Last year at the same time my wife and I were getting ready to prepare our Thanksgiving dinner for family when our Kitchenaid wall oven #KEBC107KSS104 quit after running the cleaning cycle. We called service and were told we needed a new thermostat. I ordered the part from an online parts supplier and it rectified the problem until today when my wife ran the cleaning cycle again. Seems like a product defect to me.

    I have the same problem. After using the self cleaning within 90 days of purchase the oven stopped heating. The main panel board has been replaced 6 times since 2005, thermothat 4 times, and the last 4 times it was repaired I was advised NOT to use the self cleaning function. The oven has never heated to the proper temperature. Today, 12/8 GE agreed the oven was unrepairable (remember each repair has been at a minimum of $338. per visit); however, I must take a GE product with less features. That's the extended warranty thank goodness I purchased the 5 year plan at an additional cost. My problem is that I have ALL kitchenaid products and the GE Oven will stick out like a sore thumb! They will not replace the microwave/convection oven along with the Wall Oven nor can they replace my exsisting oven since it has been deemed 'discontinued model.' WOW, what's this world coming too? Any common sense anywhere? If I refuse to take the GE, they will only pay me the purchase price, no delivery, installation, or removal of the oven being replaced. If I take the GE, they will pay shipping, installation, and removal of old oven. Again, if I take 'their product'. What in the world was Paul Harvey doing in indorsing the Kitchen aid products.

    I have a KBEC107 and have had the same problem twice both times the oven would not heat right after the cleaning cycle was run. It was under the Sears warranty program so it has not yet cost me anything to have the thermastat replaced. I contacted Kitchenaid and was told there have never been any other reported problems such as mine. I find now that I am not the only one. I will keep after KitchenAid and please anyone keep me posted if there has been any long term solution.

KitchenAid KEBC107KSS does not heat hot enough and does not heat evenly. When the temperature is dialed higher, it burns the cookies. When the convection fan is on, it has a 'cooling effect' so the temperature never reaches the proper level. Is this problem repairable? Or is this a thermostat issue? Thank you for your help!

SOURCE: OVEN will not heat

I have the same model, 3 yrs old, and the exact same thing happened. KitchenAid made the appointment with a repair company and when the tech came out the first thing he said was "you can never use the self cleaning cycle because this always happens.' He replaced the thermal fuse thermostat and said that a lot of times the digital panel will go out and that will cost around $400. The cost of the thermal part was $80 plus his $90 labor charge. I called Kitchen Aid back, and they swore they never heard this complaint...all you have to do is look on line to see it is a major complaint!

SOURCE: OVEN will not heat

After reading the above, here is how I fixed my KEBS177DSS9
I pulled out the wall oven from the cabnet. Took off the back tin panel about 10 tin screws. Follow the wire from both heating elements. They are both connected to a thermo fuse. When using the self clean feature this fuse protects the oven from over heating and starting a fire. I put a jumper wire from the hot lead on the left and connected it to the 2 leads on the right side. I turned the power back on and turn the oven on to bake at 350 degrees. Yep It worked like a charm. I bypassed the thermal fuse and used the oven, until the new thermal fuse was ordered. If you have any questions about this fix email me at Good luck

Kerc507hbt0 oven won't heat

Chances are that the thermal fuse on the back of the oven has gone out. If you used the self clean feature and then it didn't work this is more than likely the problem. If not then it coulkd be an element that is bad or a control board oproblem.

After using the self cleaning feature of our Kitchenaid KEBC107KSS single wall oven, it will not heat up. After reading numerous complaints from other people with a similar problem it seems there is a...

If you slide your oven out and take off the center panel on the back of the oven you will see the thermal fuse. If it's like mine, it will be located (looking from the back of the oven) upper right hand side. It's an oblong loooking part with two terminals with wires attached to it and two screws holding it on. Once you take it off, you will notice that it is flat on the back side and you should be able to see part # 9759242. Only reason I know this is that I have just removed mine and am going to see if I can find one locally. Same thing happened to mine after putting it in the cleaning cycle to clean up after the holidays.
Hope this helps!

No heat after self-cleaning

This was my exact problem. Our oven is almost identical, but mine so this could likely be the same fix. Check the details here:

Cant find oven light switch

the switch is part of the latch assy, it most certainly is, it is quie possible, htat the heat of a self clen cycle, has melted/malformed the plastic latch housing causing the "Plunger " to become dislodged, and is sitting within the opening somewhere. bit it is ddefinalty part of that assembly

You have a thermal cutout, usually, behind the back access panel, which is known to cause this problem. It may or may not be resettable but I recommend replacement either way.
