same thing happened to me yesterday took all day to figure it out was the themal fuse on the back of the oven the part number for my kitchen aid is 8300802 if you want the doors to unlock and reset the display you can take the leads off the fuse touch them together and the door will unlock however it is best to change the part took me 5 minutes once i knew what to look for
you have to remove the back panel and you will see the part with the number on it cost me 50 dollars but better than the 8o bucks to have a sevice guy come and do it next time i self clean i will pull the stove away from the wall to help keep it from ver heating

SOURCE: stove burners won't ignoite
just to be clear I am assuming that you can in fact see a spark traveling from the ignitor to the metal surface over where the gas should be expelled... that being the case you must remove the the gas burner from the stove and check for damage or sign of deterioration ie: cracks, rust holes, missing sections etc. more than likely if there is no damage after 7 years of use the problem will be in the form of carbon and rust deposits inside the burner pieces or associated piping (pipe that are in the burning side of the system don't tear into the gas side) *NOTE THIS WILL NOT KEEP GAS FROM COMING OUT BUT MAY PREVENT IT FROM EXITING IN THE PROPER PLACES DESIGNED FOR LIGHTING* you can clean these carbon deposits by tipping the open end face down and tapping the burner pieces with a block of wood or similar device. These deposits should fall out as a heavy black or reddish brown dust you can also try vacuuming it and running an appropriately size drill bit through each of the burner holes to clean them as well or you can probably just purchase a new one by ordering it from the place you bought the stove

I have a Kitchen Aid gas stove. All the burners will not light. No clicking, NOTHING. Is there a lighting switch or something that needs to be replaced ?? Or do I replace all 4 lighters ??

I recently encountered this issue after trying "self clean" on my
KitchenAid oven for the first time. I wish I had read these forums and
simply avoided the feature. KitchenAid was, of course, completely unhelpful since my warranty was expired. This is the first they've heard of the problem; perhaps search engines are prohibited within the KitchenAid community and they are unable to view the complaints of thousands of other customers as I have... but I digress.
The solution was straight forward: Don't worry about the locked door for now and pull the oven away from the wall. Safety first: unplug your oven and turn off your gas valve. Now remove the back panel. There is a sheet metal strip near the top of the oven that must be removed before the back panel comes loose. With the back panel removed, look for a circular device with a blue and white sticker on it and the part number: 8300802. This is a thermal fuse that blows when the oven gets too hot (apparently "too hot" is a subjective measure as normal operation during self clean will cause this issue). You can check it with a multimeter if you have one... a failed fuse will have a high resistance. To ensure this is your only issue and to immediately unlock your door, adventurous types can bypass the fuse by connecting the two wires that connect to the fuse and hold them together with some electrical tape. WARNING: never operate your oven in this manner. This is a quick test to verify resolution of the issue; not a permanent fix. Apply power to your oven and presto, your door will unlock and your front panel will illuminate.
Now, use the aforementioned search engine KitchenAid has never heard of and search for your new fuse: 8300802. I got mine for $34... you can probably find it for cheaper but my patience was wearing thin by the time I got to ordering a replacement part.
Oh, and one last step: never ever under any circumstances use the self clean feature. Do not take the easy route like I did: get your Brillo Pad and your Easy-Off and get dirty, you lazy bum.
