Question about KitchenAid KGST307 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

We have been given this range from a friend of ours that is updating her kitchen. Our friend said it was working great, she is just going with new colors.We have plugged it in (gas & electricity) , in the garage. The burners on top work great, but when it is first plugged in the indicator lights come on and then go off after displaying PF. Could this be because we have it plugged into an extention cord. We are using a heavy duty cord.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly
Usually a PF code will appear when there has not been power to the range and then there is power applied. PF = power failure There may be a loose plug... or a loose connection for the power cord inside the range itself. It most likey is not a costly repair and only a matter of locating the source of the lost power. You said you were using an extension cord.... so maybe the problem is with the extension cord itself vs the range. From what I am reading.... all you have to do is set the clock to make the PF go away. It sounds like it is working fine other than the clock needs set.

You user manual is here: (8.64 mb)
http://www.hammerwall.com/Download_Manual/13837/

http://www.hammerwall.com/tempmanuals/L0503020.pdf

From page 18 of the manual:


Display/clock

• When you first plug in the range, a tone

will sound, the display will be fully lit for a

few seconds, and the display will show

the last time set and "PF" (power failure).

If, after you set the clock (See "Setting the

clock" later in this section), the display

again shows "PF," your electricity was off
for a while. Reset the clock.


SETTING THE CLOCK is on page 25 of the manual.

If none of the manual links work above go to this stie:
http://www.hammerwall.com and search for your model number KGST307

This should solve the mystery. Thanks for choosing FixYa.

OVEN CONTROLS AND OVEN DONT WORK. RANGE TOP WORKS FINE.


Hello,

We're having the same problem. Oven light works, but plug by oven light switch does not. I changed the screw in fuse (15 Amp) in the oven, although it was blown, it didn't fix the problem.
I will be checking the double breaker on the electric panel tonight, making sure it's getting the full 220v, and if that is good, I will be looking at checking and replacing the clock.
Hope this helps.

A friend gave us a jennair stove, the new stove has a four pin plug and our old stove had three. Can I change the plug on the stove or do I need to change the outlet in the house


Either works. Do what is easier. If you g with the 3 wire the white on the range has to be connected to the chassis as well as the terminal connector. Eric

Hi, Just go ahead and replace the old element. It happens with no real reason. The new element should work great.
