Kitchen aid (now Whirlpool) has actually produced a defective stove here. Your problem is the thermostat in the rear of the unit. You can replace it yourself if you are handy, but that will not fix the problem that is built in to this very poor quality stove. If you ever try to use the self cleaning feature, it is most likely you will overheat the unit, and knock it out again and again.I wrote to Kitchen aid and received a very rude response from their "customer dis-service dept"...I told them theyir stove was defective and they wanted to sell me a NEW part for a high price, not even saying "sorry"...what a bad company! I urge all to stay away from Whirlpool products...they are junk!
Make sure you have everything out of the oven, including the oven racks.
1. Press SELF CLEAN. 2. Press the TEMP/TIME "+" or "-" arrow pads to enter the desired self-clean cycle. 3. Press START. The oven door will automatically lock. The DOOR LOCKED and CLEAN indicator lights will be displayed. 4. When the self-clean cycle is complete and the oven cools, the DOOR LOCKED and CLEAN indicator lights will turn off. 5. When the oven is completely cooled, remove ash with a damp cloth.
Recommended times are 2 hours 30 minutes for light soil and 4 hours 30 minutes for heavy soil.
If your oven has a HI and LO self clean time, HI is 4 hours 30 minutes and LO is 3 hours 30 minutes.
It is also recommended that you remove anything plastic from the top of the stove during cleaning.
