Question about KitchenAid Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

We have a 30inch built in convention wall oven. After the self clean...we could get no heat. The oven turns on to 350 and then goes right down to low and never heats up. We replaced the element a few days ago but that made no diffrence in getting any heat...Oven number YKEBS107DB. The oven is 9 years old. Thank you

SOURCE: Oven will not heat to requested temperature

Shaffy, When baking only the bake element should heat. When broiling only the broil element (upper) should heat. Your oven is a Kitchenaid, you have a 5 year warranty on any electronic element or control board. You may have a temperature sensor that is not working right. The oven just might need to be calibrated, the instructions would be in your owners manual. Your bake element might be failing, it would have to be ohmed out. You also need to verify that the bake element is getting 240V. when turned on. Catriver...post back

SOURCE: broiler quit

Have you checked the broil element resistance? Unplug the range and remove the back cover. Remove the wires from the broiler element and place a meter across the element posts. See if the element reads close to a short (It should read very low resistance if good). If the element reads infinite (open), you will have to replace the broil element. If the readings are normal, you may have a bad Electronic Range Control (ERC) board. The board controls the bake and broil features of the oven through two separate circuits. Usually a relay on the board goes bad. Since the ERC is considered "non-serviceable", replacement components can be hard to find. For this reason, the entire assembly is usually replaced. The ERC runs around $100 for your range, while the broil element can run anywhere from $35 to $60. Now...as far as your self-cleaning function is concerned - most electric ranges use BOTH elements to super heat the oven cavity to about 700 - 800 degrees F. With one of the elements not working, there's a good possibility the self-cleaning function will not work either Double check the items I mentioned and let me know if this helps you.

SOURCE: electrolux built in wall oven,

Hello stevefer
Welcome.

You said, Your Electrolux built in wall oven, lights and digital display work fine, fan works fine, but the oven will not heat regardless of the mode (broil, bake, convention roast, convection bake)

First,
1.What is the Model Number and the year of your wall oven?
2.Did the oven light up and display with any error codes?
3. Did you try to turn the breaker off for 5 minutes to see if this will reset the system?

Perhaps the heating element is failing and may need to be replaced.
I will be able to better assist you when you reply with this information.
Waiting your response.

SOURCE: Whirpool electric range - RF196LXMQ - Will not reach 350 degrees

When using Broil, it is normal for only the top element to work and it depends on the oven whether both should be on or not for baking but typically, baking does not use the upper element otherwise it could burn baked goods.
If setting the temperature higher than 350 does not cause the lower element to turn on, then it's likely that the thermostat has failed and can no longer respond to the temperature set.
The fact that both elements work under some conditions means that both of the heater elements are working at least some of the time. Because of the primitive nature of the elements, it isn't possible for them to just become 'weak' but they can interrupt themselves if there is a break in the resistance element but you could only separate the two possibilities by measuring the hot coil and that would be difficult unless you can pull the range out and access the AC feed lines that go to the element. Obviously, the power would have to be disconnected and the measurement done quickly so the element didn't have time to cool and regain continuity.

I have a Frigidaire oven that is over heating. I turn it on to 350 and the temp goes up to 500. Were is the sensor located and am I able to change the thermostat myself???thank you,


My guess is it's in the oven box towards the top. looks like an ice pick and screws to the oven wall. Find where the wire feeds through the wall and remove the access cover behind it. It can be disconnected and checked for ohms. No model number, so replacement parts are easy to look up by model number. 25315439-zejmo41uy3tce5x43qikgza0-5-0.jpg

After self clean cycle completed........oven not heating unless turned to 550 degrees. will not heat from 350 degrees up or down.


Hi

These kinds of issues are usually caused in ovens if a self cleaning cycle is used after a long time. The issue can either be a bad door switch/lock assembly or the oven temp. sensor itself that has gone bad. To solve this issue start by checking the oven temp. sensor for 1100 ohms, if the rating is more then that then check the control and door switch and replace the part that is bad. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

I put a metal dish strainer with a plastic silverware holder in my Hotpoint/GE RB758DPWW electric oven to get it out of the way and forgot about it - it resulted in a small fire with lots of black smoke...


Cleaning off the element and the liner will not cause a problem. Turning on the element will cause smoke till all residue is gone but will cause no problem. Turn it on to self clean after getting off the large pieces will get rid of everything left. Again no problem.

I cant get my viking 30inch electric range to self clean. it has a self clean spot on the knob and on the temperature knob but when both in place nothing happens.


You might need to lock the oven door to get the self clean to go on. My stove had a lever which locked the oven door when you pushed it sideways. It was in the middle above the oven door, in the gap... Hope this helps!
