Question about KitchenAid Ovens

Open Question

Just moved to a 10 yr old house with KitchenAid KEBS208DSS8 oven. Top one working as expected. However, the bottom one does not heat up. Fan & light functions for the lower one in working condition but no heat with the control panel showing LO instead of temp reading. No other error code on startup except for PF. Read online that suggested the culprit is the fuse (thermal cutoff) in the back. So, we swapped the top with the lower one and top and the result was the same (top=functional, lower=no heat). Tried to bypass the fuse in the lower one but still no heat. Starting to suspect the control panel at fault but unable to enter diagnostic (off, off, start). Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

SOURCE: OVEN will not heat

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!

SOURCE: OVEN will not heat

After reading the above, here is how I fixed my KEBS177DSS9
I pulled out the wall oven from the cabnet. Took off the back tin panel about 10 tin screws. Follow the wire from both heating elements. They are both connected to a thermo fuse. When using the self clean feature this fuse protects the oven from over heating and starting a fire. I put a jumper wire from the hot lead on the left and connected it to the 2 leads on the right side. I turned the power back on and turn the oven on to bake at 350 degrees. Yep It worked like a charm. I bypassed the thermal fuse and used the oven, until the new thermal fuse was ordered. If you have any questions about this fix email me at jodunn5555@aol.com Good luck

SOURCE: oven won't heat

Unplug the power cord for thirty minutes, this should reset the oven.
If this still does not work do the following:
Press clean and then cancel. This will reset the appliance.

If the error does not clear , then during the self cleaning cycle, the high temperature has probably damaged the temperature sensor probe, and it must be replaced.

SOURCE: Top oven will not heat up

JKP55 The top oven would not heat. Got it fixed for $261.00 with tax. The bake element in the upper oven was bad. My oven unit is 14 years old.

Moved Kenmore electric oven (2 yrs old) and now neither the oven or stovetop heat up. The clock is set.


This may sound silly, but go check your circuit breaker and flip it completely off and then back on. Sometimes it does not completely trip and your clock only needs 120 volts to work which you have, but the heating coils need 240 volts. If you have an older house that has a fuse panel instead of circuit breakers you could have a blown fuse.

This sounds like it blew the thermostat on the back of the lower oven. They are inexpensive and easy to replace. You will need to uninstall the unit and remove the back panel to acess. Check it for continuity if none replace. This is a fairly common failure due to the heat of the self cleaning. Here is a link to your part and diagrams are also available there AP3055316

The fan and oven light in bottom oven works but not heat.


The heating element is the likely culprit as they burn out and go open
circuit..(ie ...disconnected and will not heat up )
If you can use a multi-meter , then the element can be tested using the resistance range (with the oven SWITCHED OFF )

No manual


The light bulb is the oven light.
The snowflake with 3 raindrops is Defrost Mode (fan runs with no heat to reduce defrost time)
The 2 lines up top & down bottom is Traditional Cooking (heat from top & bottom elements)
The big circle with a fan is the Fan forced Oven
The small line at top only is the Grill Mode
The larger line at top only is the Double Grill Mode
The line up top with the fan underneath is Double Grill with Fan mode
The line on the bottom with fan on top uses the lower element with the fan for delicate dishes
