Question about KitchenAid Architect Series KEMC308KSS Electric Double Oven

2 Answers

None of the controllers match the one in the oven I have

Regarding KEHC309JSS. None of the boards are numbered or look the same. On the side of the board with the plugs, is stencilled 60D04010111.

After looking at the board again, I realized they have keyed the plugs so they won't go in the wrong way. They also stencilled the board to show the plug orientation. So that seems unlikely at this point. Do you know if there are different versions of this board for different ranges of serial numbers? Perhaps they changed the function of the door sensor???

Does it matter if the door is opened or closed when the oven is powered up?

    None of those links were very useful. The oven isn't throwing any error codes. The lower door switch just isn't working properly.

It appears they switched from a NO switch to an NC switch for the door sensor. I finally disassembled enough of the oven to get to the switch and it is NO, the part on appliance pros is NC. SO it must have been changed at some point. They should flag this on the board. You must replace the switch when the board is changed or the lower oven is unusable.

Replaced bake element in Kenmore oven model number **********0


My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You did not provide a oven model number which should be on a label on the face of the oven when you open the door or on the side of the door. Locate the model number for later.

You need to go to a Lowe's or home depot store and spend $25.00 on a multi-meter. Read the manual and you will be able to know for fact what parts are good or bad. This is a good tool that you need for all of your appliances. I guess you spent about $70.00 or more for the element.

You replace a element when you notice a crack or a meter Ohm reading of OL.

There are three components beside the main control board (Which this is rare) that are the cause of failure.
1.) The element - which you have already replaced.
2.) The oven thermocouple - Which regulates the oven temperature. You can purchase this over the internet for about $25.00. Used parts are good. You need a multi-meter to check if the thermocouple is good or bad.
3.) The oven control board - If the two above components are good, then this is your problem. The oven control board is separate from your main control board. Depending on your model, your can purchase this control board from Sears for $200.00 - $270.00. Or you can go into the following website, put in your model number where you will get diagrams and part numbers, search the internet with the part number for best price.

Find that the oven is so much hotter than the temp. says

The oven temperature can be adjusted so that the dial and true temp are the closely the same. But I need the make, model number and serial number of your stove / oven to tell you how. The number are usually on the door side. J

My Kenmore Electric Range model 790.9661 seems to have a control board problem. Before replacing the $200 part, just wanted to make sure it was the problem. The clock works, but the oven temperature side...

From your description it sounds that the board is the problem. I found the control panel you need for a lot less than $200 though.
I found one online from a store that I have bought from many times. Part and shipping is about $153. They sell brand name stuff too and they have great service. I hope that this helped you.

I have a Magtag wall oven MEW6530DDS model. The panel buttons do not work. I've had the oven about 3 yrs. Do I need to replace the control panel or control board?

The control board. As long as none of the buttons appear to be stuck. Press each button one at a time feeling for the retraction or click. If this checks good replace the control board. Here is a link that should help

Jjw9630aab panel is dim

See other posts regarding replacement of capaciter #C3 on control board, cost of capaciter approx 65 cents.

BrianGem posted a great solution back in May of '08, I just completed that fix on my own Jenn air, took me about 30 minutes once I got the correct capacitor.
The display board apparently has a weak spot in the
design, most likely heat related, (probably low priced components from offshore sources)
Fix: Replace heat damaged capacitor labeled C3 on display board, Hard part will be obtaining the 35Volt 68uF capacitor, I'm lucky enough to have a Brother in the electronics design field who found me a couple of high reliability caps designed for hot applications, He does not recommend changing sizes without design review for fear of overloading another component, however several other posts have indicated that a 35V 100mF cap has worked fine for them.
My control panel was attached to the oven with 4 screws accessed from above the top oven door, the panel slid up about 1/2 " and lifted off, Unplug the ribbon cables and the panel can be removed to a convenient
work surface. The display board itself is mounted with 4 screws and connected with a wide flat ribbon cable, the suspect capacitor is surface mounted to the reverse side of the board, two plastic clips need to be released (gently) and the ribbon cable unplugged. Capacitor is likely discolored or leaking, De-solder it and replace with new, match polarity marks and don’t use any more solder than needed. TURN OFF POWER TO OVEN PRIOR TO STARTING ANY REPAIRS.
If you run into trouble drop me an e-mail to and I’ll try to help.
Good luck.
Thanks for this site..

Go to PF when there is none

wshort, As long as you are sure the circuit to the oven is not the problem,such as drop in voltage, here are a couple of suggestions. Number one is that the electronic parts for this model have a five year warranty on them and you may want to call for factory service. Sometimes the connections on the main control board become loose or corroded. Try reseating them and see if the problem stops. If not I would suspect the control board power transformer behind the control board. There are two transformers, one for lights the other for the control board. The control board transformer should have the red and blue wires while the light transformer will have the black and white. The voltage could be dropping out here. Make sure that the wires to the oven terminal block are not loose or burnt. Since you are not receiving any error codes except for PF, Im not suspecting the board itself. back.
