In Your model the thermostat is electronic and is included in the electronic control board and it also have a separate temperature probe or jack probe.

We have here below the parts diagram which will help you understand where each part is located so you reach for it.

Kitchenaid range


The element is the first thing to check for continuity. Then there could be a burned off wire or terminal. the worst case could be a bad conrtol board relay if it has an electronic control or a bad oven thermostat or selectror switch if it doesn't have an electronic control.

We put our KitchenAid oven onto self cleaning mode, now the display is blank and the door will not unlock. It has been over 15 hours, and the oven is cool. How do we reset it?


Hello,

Is this a built in wall oven or a freestanding oven/range combo?

If its a wall oven the problem is going to be a high limit thermostat that went out. If it is a older model the high limit t-stat has a red reset button that can be pushed and power will be restored to controls. If it is newer once the high limit goes out it needs to be replaced. Now heres the tricky part on wall ovens, the high limit thermostat is inside control panel and it needs to be taken apart to get to that t-stat and that can be a problem trying to get it pulled out enough to get to control panel with the door being able to open. On that i wish you luck

Thier is also a high limit on the freestanding range its going to behind the back panel and easier to get it since your not dealing with something built into a cabinet

Good Luck,
Gene

My display reads F5:E7 on a Kitchenaid Superba stove. email cmaffey@hotmail.com


Well, its 10:30 on a Saturday night, and I was so frustrated by my Kitchenaid Oven. I set it to clean, but afterwards it would not unlock. the display read F5:E7, which i found out means the door unlocker won't work.

So, how did i fix it, well there are two ways, to get your oven door open.

I only found this out after tinkering for 2 hours, and found the easiest way to get your oven going again:

Pull your range out so you can see behind it. You will see a rod in the upper center part of the oven. There is a cutout in the metal and you can see the solenoid that locks the oven. It is connected to a rod. This rod is what goes to the front of the oven and is what is keeping your door locked. Simply move that rod the opposide direction, it will click, and presto, your door is now open.

I never bothered to replace the solenoid, because I didn't know if it was bad, or the controller board. The Solenoid itself is $90, I don't want to even guess what the control board is.

So, not technically a fix, but it will get your oven open. Just don't clean it automatically any more!

It takes so long for my Kitchen Aid slide in range to preheat


Could be a faulty element or faulty thermostat. Both will need to be tested to see which is problematic.

KitchenAidKEBS107: NO HEAT after power failure during self clean


Thermostat on the back needs replacement. The problem is caused by overheating the oven. Improper installation or inadequate blower. Depending on the model, the oven might need a new blower in addition to the thermostat. Try calling KitchenAid to find out if the oven needs that blower and get the part number for the thermostat, they might have replaced it with the one with higher temperature rating.

Will not come on after self cleaning


Hi,

this is a common occurance with many self clean ranges, especially slide in and wall oven units. the kitchen aid ranges usually have a non reset hi-limit. meaning it opens one time and needs to be replaced, sadly.

to replace the thermostat can be tricky to do if you're not experienced, so if you have any reservations about taking you range apart, call a qualified tech in your area. if you decide to take a go at it, well first things first.

**FIRST unplug from the wall or shut off the breaker**

*the other issue is not knowing what model you have.

I can tell you most recent kitchen aid units made by whirlpool have a fixed hi-limit at the back outer oven wall. remove the rear panel, and the hi-limit should be easily accessed. that part # 8300802

hope that helps,

good luck

I have a KEBI17DBL8 Oven that will not work after using the self clean cycle. Should I get the thermostat replaced or but a new oven?


No, no need to get a thermostat or replace the unit...yet.

sounds like a tripped hi-limit thermo.

that model number looks like a double oven wall unit, correct ? if so, big job. if not awesome. if it is, it's hard only because these are heavy. (alot of techs like myself have "wall oven carts" that allow me to remove it fairly easy) you might not have to pull it out though if it's not a wall oven, my bad.

however, I think it may be the older unit's manufactured by "Dacor". if so the limit switch on most of those ranges is a "non-resetable" style. meaning you'll have to replace the themal cut-out or aka thermal switch.
*FIRST, unplug the unit or shut off the breaker.
the hi-limit is located by the latch/lock assembly, so you'll need to dismantle the unit to a degree. if it's a free standing range, it's pretty easy. lift the top and the latch/lock access panel is located right there.

you'll need to determine the "why" as well of course. did the cooling fan/blower fail (#4173004), or the cooling fan therostat (#4173008) ?

the part number you'll need for the thermal switch failure replacement is #814505. check the old one by ohming it out first of course.

hope that helps,

good luck

Place a hammer handle between the door and the frame at the hinge location.
Carefully apply pressure on the door to push the door closed.
This will often re-set range door hinges.
