F2 Oven temperature is too high 1. Look for welded relay contacts on bake or broil relays. If this happens, replace oven control (also called clock or ERC). 2. For SELF CLEAN models: check door lock operation. 3. Look for a high resistance connection or any other cause of high resistance in the oven temperature sensor circuit. Check sensor, sensor harness and sensor harness connection at sensor and oven control. Replace sensor if found defective.
Remember: Oven control (ERC) measures resistance of sensor circuit, not actual oven temperature.
When ovens self clean, the temp rises past the highest temp you can set it at. It is burning everything off, to clean the oven remember. Yes, it is safe to leave. The ovens have a safety, which will shut the oven off if the temp gets too high.
Simply press the "Clean" button and set a time (Hi or 4hrs is best) it will the lock the door and burn everything inside. If you have silver colored shelfs remove them fist. After its done and has cooled wipe out the ash that has collected in the bottom of the oven.
I found a solution. Remove door (very simple procedure listed in Use and Care Guide). Make a shim and attach it to the end of the hinge arm (the part of the hinge protruding from the door that goes into the slot in the frame). I used metal shears and a coffee can and made a metal strip that I wrapped around the arm 3-4 times. Reinstall door and it should be tight at the top. (Unfortunately I suspect this fix will be temporary until the ill-designed hinge mechanism starts bending again.)
Solution!!! The hinges that Kitchen Aid uses are the problem. If the door is opened quickly & bottoms out, the steel in the hinge bends a little. So when you go to close the door it won't close all the way.... which causes problems with the latch , latch switch, oven cleaning, etc.
After taking apart the door several times I realized the hinge can be "fixed" without even removing the door. Follow the directions in the user manual for door removal... after inserting the little metal hinge stops (a drill bit or nail will work) Close the oven door till the stops won't allow it to close any further.....then gently but firmly, push forward. This will bend the hinge back to original shape. Remove the pins...Voila!!!
I wish kitchenaid used hardened steel or a thicker hinge....then this wouldn't happen.
