Question about Kitchen Ranges

Oven issues When I use the broiler with convection, the broiler works, but the fan does not go on. When I use the oven with or without convection, the oven never lites. In convection mode still no burner, but the fan goes on. My first thought was to replace the glow igniter, but the fan running with the convection, and not with the broiler seems to present another issue. Would that be the circuit board not functioning properly? That's almost $ 300.00 for that part. Could the fan motor be bad also? The oven used to always work, it's just in the last couple of months that it's been intermittent. I've had the oven since new for about 6 years. Do I take it out to the garage & store tools in it or is there an easy fix for this?

    It is a Kitchen Aid Superba KGRT607HWH4. I also noticed last nite, that when I was using the broiler/convection setting, the fan would go on and off intermittently. I could hear a click, and the fan would start, then seconds later go off, then back on again. The click dis not seem to be coming from the fan, but from the front near the control panel.

    I will replace the igniter, as that explains the oven not lighting, but should that effect the convection fan running on & off when the broiler is working?

    I'm ordering the igniter right now! Thanks for the quick assistance!

    As you seem to have the right answers, one last item. Maybe this is just aging of the unit, but the glass top that covers the controls, which for the most part is spotless, has gotten increasingly difficult to use. Meaning it seems like sometimes when you touch on, off temps, whatever, the touch screen is not very sensitive at times. I try to set a temp, my wife tries, we wash & dry hands, have the neighbor try it, and its hit or miss. Do I need to get under the glass? Tricks? Hints?

  • Foodguy Feb 26, 2008

    Could you tell me if there is a way to get the control glass more responsive? Its as clean as can get, but it seems like no matter what finger you use to turn on, set temps, etc, you have to try and try. Sometimes one press will do it, sometimes, i have to go through every finger on the block, til it works.

All the lights and buttons work/sound on control panel. Broiler oven works but baking element not working. Replaced baking element with new, but still doesn't work. Convection fan works, light works,...

Manufacture and model would be nice ohm out the bake element might be open some are in the oven cavity others are hidden below the lower oven plate and have to check from the rear by removing back cover in the bake mode the broil element element cycles on/off thats why you have some heat.

Convection oven blowing cold air

If your fan is blowing cold air, it's the air inside the oven that circulates. It has nothing to do with the fan. Convection circulates the existing air in the oven. Sounds like you might deselect the convection setting if this continues to happen. We have parts, so please let us know if we can help any further. :>)

Sometimes the fan blade mounting nut gets loose. Remove the cover from the fan and see if the blade wobbles. If so,tighten the nut on the fan motor.

I have a 15 year old DCS 4 burner gas stove and oven. Slide in. The broiler stopped working today. Is it the broiler or the fan? How much are parts?

the likely cause is the hotsurface igniter has failed. not exactly sure how to check the part but you can check it voltage is getting to the igniter. if you have voltage, it's probably the problem.
