Question about KitchenAid KGST307 Gas Kitchen Range

4 Answers

I have a kitchenaid KGT307HWH5 and it is really hard to get the funtions to work. It is a glass top display and we have to mash our fingers down to get the functions to work if they even do. Would voltage be a problem. My outlet is reading 119 does it need to be exactly 120? Has anybody had problems with the display before? Where should I start? Thanks

    This is not a washer it is a gas range. The display only works partially. Some buttons work and then they won't work. Is anybody familiar with this model?

    Ok but that is an easy answer to rattle off. This part is non refundable from Kitchenaid so if its not the control panel then I'm out 200 bucks. Another problem occured last night. The stove will not heat up past 300F. I made sure that it was not on Celcius.

    The burners work fine its the glass control panel that is intermittent.

The outlet voltage is fine, and will fluctuate depending on load during the day, so you can read anywhere from maybe 112V to 122V at various times. I don't have any experience with your model, but Seth here at Fixya answered a question about the oven not going higher than 250 V for another person. Here is his answer:

this is normally a faulty electronic control board and should be replaced.But you can check the resistance on the temp probe
That it is the electronic control board makes sense, since the potentiometer for the coil voltage is there. As for the button problem, the display assembly would have to be taken apart to see exactly what is going on, I know that from having been an electronic tech all my life, and I've had to fix all my appliances myself. Being that way, I would try to get at the control board to see if there isn't any corrosion on the gold-plated contacts that switches use. Sometimes their construction is such that you have to partially destroy it to see what's going on. Service techs don't go that far, they just replace the part, which is what will be required of you, most likely. If you do try to get inside to check it out, make sure all wire connectors are tight and not loose. If you can get some electrical contact spray cleaner inside the part, try to spray the switch contacts, operate them, spray some more, and let them thoroughly dry. Don't work on the unit unless it's unplugged. I wish I had an "easy fix" for you, and maybe I could figure out one if I could see the unit, but that's all the thoughts I have on it. Replacement of the panel may be the only option, sorry. I guess you could get them a repair person to give you an estimate first, but they'll be expensive, and you end up having to buy the part anyway, in most cases. Good luck, hope I helped some.

NO never on the voltage issue,but debris,smoke,spills from earlier cooking events can make spark modules and spark units act odd,i.e. only spark or always spark when they decide too fire,make positive you clean any and all food or spills off each burner sparker with something very dry in a contact cleaner because the module uses a clean flame track source to shut off the module unit,as far as the stovetop buttons as soon as gas enters that cooktop and fires,then in this flame it senses a rectified small d.c. voltage thru the flame and senses to stop the ignition pulse after ignition

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. It seems to be the issue with the control panel, don’t think that 119 volt should cause any difference. To start with open the control panel and check the wiring harness, if everything else seems to be working fine then you’ll need to replace the control panel. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

    That is the reason I believe it is the control panel.

To remove the error display, press Pause/Off twice.
If Pause/Off does not work:
1. Unplug washer or disconnect power for one minute.
2. Plug in washer or reconnect power.
3. Re-select the cycle and press Start.

I bought a new interlocking collar for my Kitchenaid blender, and now it doesn't seem to be fitting on the base properly. It's resting on the base rather than going all the way down, if that makes sense....


Remove the collar from the jug and have a good look inside, there is a circular ring inside the collar that needs to engage correctly with a glass finger on the jug. The glass finger goes between 2 plastic fingers. I think there are two of them. It was a silly idea that's been given the flick on later models.

You should be able to get your fingers behind it, either on both ends or underneath. You MAY POSSIBLY need to open the freezer door a little and hook your fingers behind the top of the grille.

Hello, I have a home tek slow cooker, I have just cooked the mince in it, but would like to put the mash on top and heat through in oven to make it a cottage pie. It is ceramic with a glass lid.


Ceramic dishes are fine in an oven so long as they aren't cooled down too rapidly when taken out, (so don't put it in water when very hot). You won't be using the lid because you will be browning the mash.
Hope that helps and bon appetit

DeBruce Polish should remove those types of problems and also render the surface more "Cleanable". This stuff really works on glass anomalies.

Glass top stove hard to work


Glas tops usually detect both heat and time of unit on cycle. notice how burner turns on and off when on lower settings. the biggest issue i get on glass tops is cookware. the cookware should "FLAT!!" bottoms, owners manual suggests using a straight edge to determine. I have tested very expensive cookware ($200 a pot) and it seems to not be flat enough. much expensive cookware is designed to be used on gas tops. pans should also be of a medium weight. I tell people before they buy a glass top, plan on spending nearly as much on your cookware as on the range. A good set of Calphalon (not an advertisement) non-stick is about $500 -$600.
The top has built in sensors that shut the burner down when heat is trapped in an air pocket under the pan. this causes the burner to shut down prematurely and take much longer to cook.
