Question about KitchenAid KGRA806PSS Gas Kitchen Range
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?
Heres the part number for the saftey thermostat 8300802

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 - just have to remove the back panel.
Speculation is that when the power went out during the self clean the fans stopped, so it overheated and blew the fuse.

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.
