Hello Tgilreath,

I understand that you are having a problem with you KitchenAid range. The oven element is broken and needs replaced and you would like to know the cost of the element.

I can instruct you on how to change the element in your range. However, I do not know if it is the top of bottom element and the change procedure is the same on both of them. However, when looking up the element to tell you where you can purchase and the cost I came across many different KitchenAid models that contained the numbers you gave. There should be more letters and numbers on your tag for the model.

The following is steps are how you change out your element:

1. Disconnect the power to the unit
2. Remove the lower back cover on your range (the one that sits directly behind your oven)
3. Locate the two prongs on the bad element sticking thru the oven wall and remove the wires
4. In the oven remove the racks
5. In the oven remove the two screws holding the element in place
6. Remove the element by pulling in forward
7. Install new element in Reverse

You can locate the element on Sears Parts Direct at the following web-page, however you will need the full model number http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/kesc307?pathTaken=modelSearch&prst=0&shdMod=kesc307 You may also reply to this thread and I will get you a part number and the exact page you need to order the part.

Thank you for choosing FixYa.com

Our oven won't work. it is a convection oven, and it won't heat at all. the stovetop does work, but when we turn the oven on it says "low" and never heats up. the fan does turn on when we try...


Hi

If the fan is working then most likely it is the heating element gone bad.

You can check this if you have a multimeter or continuity tester.

Replacing the element is not too difficult, you have to get the back off, disconnect 2 wires, undo the fixing screws then fit the new one.

Don't forget to turn the power off first tho'.

Replacing bottom element on kitchenaid kesc207


Yes, you can slide the oven out and get behind it.
remove the screws in the lower back panel. To make it easier on yourself, install the NEW element and secure it so that it cant move while you are "pushing" the wires onto it from behind.

Good Luck!!

Oven does not heat up very fast


The problem in either a bad relay on the control board or a bad bake element. You can use an ohm meter to check for resistance on the bake element. Any resistance means it is ok. Check for 240 volts to bake element. If element checks ok then replace the control board.

Oven not heating to correct temperature


First thing that should be checked is proper voltage.  Low voltage can cause this problem.  Have that checked by a professional first then let me know what you find.
