Last night I saw the lights in the house flicker momentarily... This morning, I turned the oven on, set it to Bake and within a few seconds, the control panel reported error code “F6 E0” then shut the oven off. The control panel also reported "Lost communication...". I read on another site that this code may require replacing the control panel itself. Apparently, the momentary power fluctuation wasn't large enough to damage the electronics (since the control panel still works), but was significant enough to confuse the electronics controlling the oven. To fix the oven, I simply turned the 30 AMP breaker for the oven off for about 5 minutes. When I turned it back on, the oven worked just fine. Solution #1 recommends taking off the control panel, which voids the warranty. It's more likely that it was fixed just by cycling power to the oven via the breaker.
We offer replacement oven and oven/microwave touchpad for no longer manufactured Kitchenaid units. We also have the control boards available. Please reach out to us with your model number for more information.
I found the answer by checking the Kitchenaid website to find the manual. My model is KEMS308sss04, this is found on the right door frame.
You can preheat oven, but then turn off to set thermometer.
Put probe in food.
Put food in oven and plug in probe.
The digital light asks for the temperature you want, type it in.
Then the cooking method. I used convection bake at 325.
(The first time I didn't stop the oven and it didn't work. After stopping everything and starting with the probe before turning on the oven, it worked perfectly. Good Luck.

Chances are that the thermal fuse on the back of the oven has gone out. If you used the self clean feature and then it didn't work this is more than likely the problem. If not then it coulkd be an element that is bad or a control board oproblem.
After reading the above, here is how I fixed my KEBS177DSS9
I pulled out the wall oven from the cabnet. Took off the back tin panel about 10 tin screws. Follow the wire from both heating elements. They are both connected to a thermo fuse. When using the self clean feature this fuse protects the oven from over heating and starting a fire. I put a jumper wire from the hot lead on the left and connected it to the 2 leads on the right side. I turned the power back on and turn the oven on to bake at 350 degrees. Yep It worked like a charm. I bypassed the thermal fuse and used the oven, until the new thermal fuse was ordered. If you have any questions about this fix email me at [email protected] Good luck
