Question about Ovens

3 Answers

I have a KitchenAid Model YKERS807SS01 and used the self cleaning feature yesterday. The oven shut down 2/3 of the way through the cycle and everything is dead. Plus, the door is locked and we can't open it. Can anyone help us get the door open and get this problem fixed.

Hello,

Welcome to FixYa.

The fuse/hi-limit is located at the back, but you will need to remove the rear panel to access it and change it out. Unfortunately it is not a resettable type and will need to be replaced.

**unplug the unit from the wall or insure the breaker is OFF before servicing...safety first**

This image indicates what you're looking for. Part #9759242


I have a KitchenAid Model - macmarkus_456.jpg


It is available at "repairclinic.com" as the image would indicate. If you follow the link here it will also give you pointers on how to check it.

Likely not necessary since it is pretty obvious to be tripped, but that's up to you.

Let me know what you find. If this is something you think is not within' your scope of expertise please call a pro.

I will try to help in any manner I can of course as well. Good luck.

Regards,

Macmarkus :)

Hi,

It seems to be a thermal fuse on the back of the oven.There is two I believe, you would have to ohm them out and see which one is bad. That is after you check the breakers and voltage going to the unit. You'll need to uninstall the entire oven and remove the back panel to see the part mounted to the back of your oven. Below is a link to the part you'll need to order and replace.

Look at the below picture ( generic ) :-

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Hi

You can start the self cleaning cycle again and then stop it after 15 minutes, then let the oven cool for sometime and check if the door opens again, if the not then you have to take a screw driver and open the latch. You can also try to press and hold the light switch; the "locking mechanism" resets itself and then the door will open. Engaging the light switch for several seconds resets the entire locking mechanism and overrides the "Stop/Clear" button. After this the latch mechanism should be replaced as it is bad. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

    However, now I believe the door latch assembly has gone bad and should be replaced. To open the door insert a screwdriver and open the latch

I used the self-clean for the first time and my oven door is still locked and the display doesn't work at all. Model #YKESS908. What can I do to unlock the oven door? I have checked the circuit...


Hi

You can set the unit on self cleaning and then after 15 minutes stop the cycle, let it cool down for an hour and then open the door. If the issue remains then you'll have to replace the door lock assembly, then you can open the door with a coat hanger by pulling the latch towards you. Hope this helps...please post back for further assistance.

After using self cleaning feature...oven door locks up...4th time this has happened...kitchenaid says "no known issues with your unit or the problem you reported...can you halp


Hello - we have had this same issue a number of times as well. Do you lose all power on the unit too? We do - have discovered that using the self-cleaning isn't really a good idea with these ovens. The ovens aren't really made to heat to such high heats that are used in the cleaning cycle and during that last hour of cleaning it hits it highest peak - and it blows it's fuses. We recently blew 2 fuses at the same time, locking both doors (Double oven) and knocking out the power for the entire unit. Our repair man said that the average on wall ovens is anywhere between 6 - 12 cleanings before you will blow the same fuses and the whole cycle starts all over again. Our expense was $350. So, self-cleaning now means elbow grease around this house. How this information was a bit helpful for you.

Whirlpool Oven Died During Cleaning Cycle No Display Now Locked


Had same problem with my KitchenAid. 10 years old. Ran self cleaning cycle, oven died!!!! Called repair. Appears to be thermal fuse. Part on order. Microcomputer had some brown spots on it. Tey wanted us to replace it too. But will wait to see if fuse is problem. Repair - $150 vs. $570. If it's the higher price, we'll buy a new oven before putting that kind of money into it. Will NEVER run a clean cycle again even if I have to buy a new oven.

KEBS 278 DWH6 After self cleanng (Top oven) everything shut down. There is still power to the ovens and I have shut off breaker for a long time to see if computer reset. I read that the problem might be...


The thermal fuse is in back of the oven. This is a design flaw of the oven KitchenAid won't admit. Everytime you use the self clean feature this will happen.
The oven has to be taken out to reach the fuse in the back and replaced. The fuse costs about $40+, but the labor will probably run around $300+ unless you feel confortable doing this yourself.
I am about to replace mine for the 2nd time, good luck!

Kitchenaid superba electric oven kebc107kss05


Did this with me twice now on self clean. It's the thermostat on the back of the oven. Set to trip when oven gets too hot which happens with self clean. Part is about $45 - $50 and pretty simple to install. Hardest part is pulling the oven out of the wall.

Missing my manual


I suggest you read this link before you use the self clean cycle. http://www.fixya.com/support/t241114-oven_will_not_heat#SameProblemContinued
I used mine for the first time two days ago on model KEBC147 and it will not heat now.
You might not want to try self-clean unless you have time to call for repair afterwards before
using your oven again.

Very disappointed in KitchenAid in Texas ...

OVEN will not heat


KitchenAid KEBC107KSS does not heat hot enough and does not heat evenly. When the temperature is dialed higher, it burns the cookies. When the convection fan is on, it has a 'cooling effect' so the temperature never reaches the proper level. Is this problem repairable? Or is this a thermostat issue? Thank you for your help!
