Question about KitchenAid KERC507 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Range top works, oven does not

The surface elements and convection fan all work, and the control panel, including displays appears fine. The oven, however, doesn't get hot. Info on the Web talked about similar problem being caused by in-line fuse in a particular power cable.

I turned circuit breaker off and looked inside back of unit. Found cable, and removed shrink wrap. Snipped one end of lead going into fuse (to break circuit) and tested fuse with meter. Fuse is no good.

Question 1: Where can I get a replacement, and should it be ok to just replace the in-line fuse (it has thin wires protruding from each end, which were crimped to the heavier insulated red wire), or should the whole power cable be replaced?

Question 2: Where can I get the above part (fuse and/or cable)? A Web search didn't turn up any of the type fuse (Littelfuse 20A 250V 324). I'm in the US if that makes a difference re parts availability.

Thank you for your help!

Feature not available


I had the same problem with a new kitchenaid range which they have agreed to replace after 1 month. Oven shut off a couple times while baking and feature not available displayed when trying to turn on oven again. I tried starting clean cycle and waiting a couple minutes for element to heat then cancelled clean cycle. Oven worked fine after this but this shouldnt be a solution, obviously something not wired right.

I have an 8 yr old thermador scd302 double wall oven. Top oven started not heating up (wouldnt go past 240), but then worked a couple of times. Now it just stays at 100. Broil and convection do not work...


THINGS TO CHECK:

the broil element
is the heating element that is found at the top of the oven and produces a very high heat for broiling. If the broil element isn't working, you should first do a visual inspection for signs that the element has blistered or separated. If the element appears normal then you can check for continuity with a multi-meter. Remove power from the appliance before performing this test. Remove the back panel and locate the terminals for the broil element and inspect the terminals and wires for signs of overheating or damage.

If there is no continuity then the element will need to be replaced. If the wires are damaged then they will need to be repaired. If the element is ok then you will need to check the broil circuit to determine the cause. This involves live voltage checks and should only be performed by qualified persons. Components to check include fuses, if the range is equipped, and oven control thermostat or electronic control. Depending on the manufacturer of the element, you will normally read between 19 ohms and 115 ohms


The bake element
is the heating element that is found at the bottom of the oven. Most electric ovens use both the bake element and the broil element in a bake cycle, with the bake element performing 90% of the heating. If the bake element isn't working, the oven may not heat. To help determine if the bake element is defective you should first do a visual check. If the element is blistered or separated then it should be replaced. If the element appears to look normal, then turn the oven on to a bake function for a minute and then turn it off.

Check the element for signs of heating and if it is still cold then it may be defective. Disconnect the power and then remove the back panel. First check the wires as they may have become loose or corroded. If the element appears to be fine visually, test it for continuity with a multi-meter. ( by placing the each of the meter prongs on each end of the heater element connectors) If the element is burned or no longer has continuity, it will need to be replaced. Depending on the manufacturer of the element, you will normally read between 19 ohms and 115 ohms

The oven safety valve
(also called the gas valve) is the part that ensures that gas is not released until the igniter has reached the correct temperature needed to ignite the gas. While this part can fail, it is uncommon. If the hot surface igniter does not glow you should first verify that you have voltage to the circuit. This is a live voltage check and should be performed by a qualified person. If voltage is lost at the valve terminals then you should verify the continuity of the bi-metal in the valve using a multi-meter.
Most modern ovens use an electronic control board
to control the oven functions. These models will use the control board to operate the oven safety valve on a gas range or oven, and the bake and broil elements on an electric range or oven. If there is no power to the igniter circuit, or the element circuits, then you should check the control board to verify that there is power at the appropriate output relay. These are live voltage checks and should be performed by qualified persons only. If there is no output voltage then the control should be replaced.

Oven not working


It sounds like the element/s have blown, especially if the fan is still working o/k.
You cannot always tell by looking at them if they are faulty or not.
Only way to be sure is to test them with a meter.
Hope this helps.
Please rate my solution.
Thankyou.

Oven not heating KitchenAid KERC506HWH3


This is probably the thermal shuttoff fuse. Usualy mounted in the back of the oven. Aftermarket fuses are resetable but the OEM ones that come with the ovens usualy are not, so when they go out they stay out. This shuttoff only effects the power to the element so the rest of the oven appears to work.
The oven has to come out and remove the rear covers, behind the covers you will see 2 wires that go to a small 1/2 in dia "plug" that mounts directly to the surface with 2 screws.
Remove the connections and put a meter across the cuttout. it should read very close to zero ohms, if not its blown.

Elements in convection oven won't heat


DO you have a model number for that. I'm almost sure it's a thermal fuse in the back of the oven. Usually they go out during or after cleaning but that would shut down both elements. If you have the model (usually by the inside door look all over and up in the cavity) Then if you go to this link

http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action?intcmp=xsite_Sears

It will show you a breakdown of the oven and where it is. If you give me the model I'll show you what I'm talking about. Good luck.

P.S. if it the fuse it's a cheap fix, little hard to get in back of the oven but cheap!

Oven elements dont work / stove top works fine


I just had a repairman fix my Kitchenaid 507KERCYAL0 electric range and oven. The problem was a $4.00 fuse. I didn't see exactly what he did but he accessed the fuse from the rear - had to pull out the range and I think remove a panel. Hopefully this helps and saves you $$. I ended up paying $90 to fix a $4 problem

Oven not heating KitchenAid KERC506HWH3


Need to check and see if you are getting 220 volts to the element or if the element is showing resistance with an ohm meter. Any resistance means it is ok. If you are not getting voltage to the elements and resistance is ok then the control board is bad. Note: Always check outlet for proper voltage first! Never know when a breaker has gone bad. Should have 220 volts from line 1 to line 2 and 110 volts from line 1 or line 2 to ground.
