KGRA806PSS00 oven dead after self cleaning

I have a KitchenAid that was in the middle of Self Cleaning when it stopped. Nothing no panel lights and oven door is locked. This is the 2nd time this has happened. The first was in Jan. 2007. The top burners work fine. It looks like the replaced some "thermal safety" last year based on the receipt. Any idea if this could be the same problem and what the part# is for this part? Also, how do I get the oven door open now?

    Same thing happened to me. I turned on self-cleaning and the door is locked and won't open after several days. The display panel is also off. Tried unplugging and plugging back in, but it's still not working. I called kitchenaid but they said its an expensive fix. Yet I did nothing wrong. Help

    Kitchen Aid knows the problem and wont' fix??? We have the exact same problem.



    First time we ever used self clean and it stops??!? Fix it yourself ... it's a gas range... won't I need to worry about gas line issues?



    For a gas stove that cost that much, I'm surprised at the lack of support.

    I have the Architect Series II dual fuel range KDRS807SSS and had the same problem. The power failed during a self clean cycle, and when the power was restored the door was locked and there was no display on the oven. The gas range was still working.

    I had a technician out who wanted to take the oven apart and change the "computer". Fortunately, I'd read this post and had him check the thermal fuse first. That was the problem. Of course he didn't have the part, so I got it from repairclinic.com for $45, Kitchenaid p/n 9759242. Put it in myself.

    Speculation is that when the power went out the fans stopped, so it overheated.

    Same problem with the thermal fuse blowing when using the self clean cycles. I replaced the 110 degree C unit with a 130 degree C unit ( the tech sheet that came with the range showed a 130 degree unit installed? As stated in other posts it is very easy to replace.
    Hopefully this will solve the problem. I contacted KitcheAid customer service and was told ( sounded like she maintained a straight face too ) that they had never had any reports of this problem. She also told me that it is not possible to contact the service department of their organization since even they don't know the phone number or email address ( sounds plausible doesn't it ). The attitude of the woman I spoke with was that since the warranty period has expired it is not their problem, too bad so sad, why am I bothering them with my problem. I requested to speak to her supervisor or someone else higher up the food chain at Whilpool, she proceeded to put me on hold ( I'm sure she had an evil smile on her face ) after 30 min of waiting it became apparent that no one was ever going to answer.

    I will never purchase a Whilpool product again! How about you?

The cooling fan is stuck on these models, which causes the thermostats to blow anytime you do a selfclean. fix the fan before you attemp to clean after replacing the thermostate.

Call KitchenAid/Whirpool and talk to the "Executive Management Team"
I had this fault for the second time and this time spoke to the Exec Management team who said they were unaware of this as a common fault. My stove was ‘fixed’ free of charge – the fuse was replaced, again.
Please everyone who has had or is having this problem call again – this problem needs to be fixed, replacing the fuse each time or not using the self clean function is NOT a fix.

Yes, I had exactly the same problem. It was only a couple of years old, but no longer on warranty. Sears took two weeks to get here to see it and then another week to "order the part.' It was just under $200.00 to just change a fuse.

Here is exactly what they did: unscrew the back panel (lots of screws) and just replace the thermo fusse. You can get this part at a store that sells applicance parts for probably under $15.00 and put it in yourself. Apparently, KitchenAid gas stoves have this problem all of the time because the heat is too extensive for the part and it shortcircuts. Do the above and save yourself a lot of money.

Kitchenaid Range KGRA806PSS Control Panel Not Functioning


You're right about not using the self clean option. Your oven gets up to over 800 degrees when you use that feature. You can choose to simply keep your oven wiped out, rather than self clean it. The timer is most likely going out if the "stop" button doesn't work after cleaning. Please call or email us and we will be sure toget the right part for you. I hope this solves your problem. Ella

How do I use the self cleaning functions - kitchenaid oven


Hi,

Please allow me to help you first with some background of self cleaning functions:

Self-cleaning ovens use an approximately 900 degrees Fahrenheit (482 degrees Celsius) temperature cycle to burn off spills leftover from baking, without the use of any chemicals. A self-cleaning oven is designed with a mechanical interlock (patented in 1982) to keep the oven door locked and closed during and soon after the high-temperature cleaning cycle, which can be approximately three hours. The door stays locked to prevent burn injuries. You can open the oven door after the oven cools to approximately 600 F (315 C).

If baking spills are not wiped up after baking, there may be some smoke during an oven cleaning cycle. It is a good idea to remove any pets from the area when running the oven's self-cleaning cycle. There have been reports of oven-heated Teflon-coated items releasing odorless fumes deadly to birds.
Self-cleaning ovens have the added benefit of more insulation, which helps the energy efficiency for regular baking. This is similar in concept to an increased R-factor for home insulation.

You will also save energy costs by using the self-cleaning cycle right after baking, to make use of the already partially heated oven.

Please check this website mentioned bellow which would give you a detailed method of how to perform it:

Hope this would help you .

God Bless.

Kitchen Aid Double Convection Oven stopped during Self Cleaning


same thing happened to me yesterday took all day to figure it out was the themal fuse on the back of the oven the part number for my kitchen aid is 8300802 if you want the doors to unlock and reset the display you can take the leads off the fuse touch them together and the door will unlock however it is best to change the part took me 5 minutes once i knew what to look for
you have to remove the back panel and you will see the part with the number on it cost me 50 dollars but better than the 8o bucks to have a sevice guy come and do it next time i self clean i will pull the stove away from the wall to help keep it from ver heating

We had the same problem as well. everything locked up and the display board went dead. It turned out to be the thermostat in the back. Once that was replaced everything worked ok. . The serviceman told us to pull the oven out from the wall when self cleaning. It is because the heat disapation and air circulation from the oven is very poor when running at maximum temperatures and this burns out components. First check the termostat, which is a $20.00 item.
