Question about KitchenAid KERC607 Electric Kitchen Range
The oven is not working, and one of the range's surface cooking areas is also not working. The reparir person indicated that the problem was the range control unit. He suggested it be replaced.
Wher can I find the control unit and what is the cost.
I have a Kitchenaid glass top range and one of the elements will not get very hot. It will get hot enought that you can't put your hand on it but it will not glow red like the other 3. Can you help me.
CESAR, THE OVEN CONTROL IS THE CLOCK,HOWEVER, ON MANY KITCHEN AID RANGES, THERE IS AN INLINE FUSE 15AMP, THAT IS IN THE OVEN CIRCUIT. I WOULD SUGGEST THAT THE INLINE FUSE BE CHECKED FIRST BEFORE CONDEMNING THE CONTROL.
DAVID, THE GLASS TOP ELEMENTS ARE CONTROLLED BY THE SURFACE SWITCH FOR REGULATING TEMPS. THE SWITCH WILL TURN THE ELEMENT ON AND OFF TO REGULATE TEMP. I WOULD SUSPECT THE SURFACE SWITCH(WHAT THE KNOB IS ATTACHED TO) AS THE DEFECTIVE COMPONENT. THERE IS A HIGH LIMIT SWITCH THAT IS PART OF THE ELEMENT. IF IT WAS BAD, THE HOT SURFACE INDICATOR LAMP WOULD BE LIT ALL THE TIME.
THE ELEMENT IS NOTHING MORE THAN A COIL OF WIRE THAT HEATS WHEN CURRENT IS PASSED THROUGH IT.
IF IT WAS BAD, IT WOULDN'T DO ANYTHING AT ALL.
