I have the same model, 3 yrs old, and the exact same thing happened. KitchenAid made the appointment with a repair company and when the tech came out the first thing he said was "you can never use the self cleaning cycle because this always happens.' He replaced the thermal fuse thermostat and said that a lot of times the digital panel will go out and that will cost around $400. The cost of the thermal part was $80 plus his $90 labor charge. I called Kitchen Aid back, and they swore they never heard this complaint...all you have to do is look on line to see it is a major complaint!

Self cleaning instruction,

convection oven does not heat. - oven_cleaning.jpg Self cleaning ovens save you time.--> Self cleaning oven instructions vary slightly from model to model, so always consult the correct instructional manual for specific directions for your particular appliance. If you’ve never owned a self cleaning oven before, you'll find that it requires a gentler attitude towards cleaning than your previous oven.

Standard Self Cleaning Oven Instructions
Standard self cleaning oven instructions allow you to keep your oven clean without having to get down on your hands and knees, hosing the inside with oven cleaner and putting on a face mask to keep from breathing in the fumes. Self cleaning ovens are simpler to clean and kinder on the back, buttocks and arms, not to mention the sinuses.
Empty the Oven Take out the oven racks, foil and anything removable from the internal oven. Do not spray any oven cleaner inside the oven. Dispose of the foil and wash the racks in the sink. You may need to use oven cleaner on the racks to cleanse baked on grease off. If you choose to leave your racks in the oven during the cleaning cycle, you can use vegetable oil to wipe the racks down and restore some luster to the metal.

    Self Cleaning Cycle

    Never run the self cleaning cycle on your oven while not home. If
    you have excessive buildup on the bottom of the oven it will smoke. The
    heat is very intense in self cleaning ovens. The heat is designed to
    turn the debris, grease and dirt into ash. The average self cleaning
    cycle lasts about three hours. The oven temperature will be extremely
    hot. During summer time, you should run the self cleaning cycle late at
    night or early in the morning to avoid over taxing the air conditioner
    during the heat of day.

    After Cleaning Cycle

    When the self cleaning cycle ends, allow the oven a couple of hours
    to cool down. Use a gentle, damp cloth or sponge and wipe out the ash
    from the inside of the oven. Wiping down the residue is important. Take
    note of the areas around the seals and the front exterior door will not
    be cleaned by the self cleaning process. You can clean these areas with a
    gentle cloth and hydrogen peroxide. Regular wipe downs of these areas
    will help prevent soil build up.

    Your Oven Regularly

    Too often people with self cleaning ovens think they can skip regular
    cleanings, but too much build up inside the oven can lead to foul odors
    and smoking when running the self cleaning cycle. If you use the oven
    heavily, you should run the self cleaning cycle monthly. You should wipe
    down the areas around the door and the front of the oven regularly.

    For unexpected spillovers occur inside the oven, always wipe it
    out with water and a cloth rather than using harsh chemical cleaners. Be
    sure to clean the racks regularly. Always review your brand’s self
    cleaning oven instructions for specific issues or troubleshooting

    Manufacturer Manuals

    For details specific to cleaning your oven, you'll need to consult
    the manual provided by the manufacturer. Please note that instructions
    may vary from one model to another as well as by company. Contact the
    manufacturer of your particular oven directly to obtain instructions for
    your appliance. Alternately, Kitchen Manuals Online is a resource
    for finding and sharing hard-to-find appliance manuals.

I self-cleaned the convection oven on my sc302tw, and now it does not heat on any settings, convection, bake or broil. It is 14 years old.

Looks like the sensor has tripped... on my Bosch oven, I opened the back. Connected to the thermostat is a switch with a little button which pops out to prevent the oven from overheating... push in the button to reset it and it should work

I have a Bosch HBN 455 double oven with the convection oven on top, and a regular oven on bottom. The unit is about 5 yrs old. We recently ran the Self Clean mode, and it seems like it has malfunctioned...


Do you see any Error Message on the Display?

If not, then it should not be a Concern. More often this could be Thermal Fuse on the Back of the Unit ( On Most Models ) will stop the Broil and Bake from Turning ON. You would just start a bake cycle and the temperature will sit at 100 and something degrees and never raise.appliance.

Let me know, once you check the same.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
