    Self cleaning, shut down, door locked, electronic control pad out but burners light and work. Have electricity to plug, so not a circuit breaker problem.

    I am furious, Suppose to have Easter dinner, turned on the self cleaning cycle and the display went out and the door locked. SO many people having this problem, I am calling Kitchenaide tomorrow and they will be sorry to hear from me

    Exact same problem. It shot down when self cleaning. I removed that rear thermal protection sensor and bridged the wires. It works fine. If it catches on fire, so be it, cause it is a piece of doo-doo. My oven is only two years old and it is on its third touch panel at $130 each. First was replaced under warranty and three months later it went out. Sears did not want to replace it for free since the oven was over a year old. Kitchen Aid, never again.

Small Success! Self-cleaning cycle/thermo fuse problem
For the second time when I used the self cleaning cycle on my Kitchen Aid Gas Range the unit shut down, the door locked and front panel was blank.
This time I did talk to the KitchenAid ‘executive management team’ who were very friendly and helpful and said they would fix my stove – free of charge, which they did.

KitchenAid say that they are unaware of this as an ongoing, common problem.

Will everyone who has had this fault or those who will have it in future please call again to KitchenAid directly and insist on speaking to the ‘executive management team’.

    No more self cleaning! Dont stand for it !

    Please call the KitchenAid/Whirlpool and ask to speak to the executive management team so they can no longer say "we didnt know about it."

    This problem must be resolved - replacing the fuse each time is not a fix.

I had the same issue.
Was self cleaning the oven and everything blew.

Part was $45 delivered. Came with two.
Evidently there are 2 thermo discs on the oven. One is located below the door. The one in the back trips most frequently because the units generate so much heat and are generally close to a wall with no room for the heat to escape.

There are two little flanges to take off, then a cross connector. Then the back panel. About 18screws. From there the thermo disc is in the upper middle of the back of the oven. 2 screws hold it in. It is part 830802. I replaced with a 130degree thermo 9759242 . Hope it helps.

I had a part ordered but did not know how to swap it out.
I ordered a therm disc kit from parts-direct.
I read this blog right before the tech called to come over. Saved $65 as a result of the cancelled call.

Better yet, my wife claimed I was playing on the internet. Proved her wrong.

Two victories in one day.

Thank fixya for both.

Same issue! A couple of days before last Thanksgiving and then this week, before a party! It's the Thermoprotection switch in the back of the unit. The tech. that was just here said that it was pre-set for 110 deg. Cent. and should be replaced with one that is 130 deg. Cent. He also suggested that Cleaning Cycle No. 1 be used instead of a longer one.

YUP - it was the thermal sensor - found it & replaced it and now there will be no more self cleaning for me.

I put my KA oven on self clean, after some time the oven shut down, the door is still locked and there is no power to the display panel/clock. We unpluged it, tried the fuse panel in the basement. Nothing...

Shut off power. Pull unit out. Remove back panel. Toward the top of the backside is a T O D. It's a thermal device. Round in shape with a wire connected on each side. Probably blue or yellow striped with L105C or L110C marking on it. Replace this and buy an extra one forr the next self cleaning.

Whirlpool oven door won't open after self cleaning.

I had the same problem. Hold down any button for 1 minute. That should reset the memory.

My oven flased an F9 error....

The solution to this issue is to finish running the self cleaning feature to this oven, Shutting off the oven or opening the door before the self cleaning feature has completely run will send a F9 error from the safety co0ntrol unit feature built in to the system bios of the control circuit, You will need to close the oven and set the option self cleaning to run now. if your error message prevents you from taking these steps you will need to unplug the oven from the wall socket and let it sit for an hour to reset the screen and then run the self cleaning feature all the way trough, it will shut down on its own when the self cleaning cycle has completed

Ran self clean on my oven and it stopped in middle of cleaning cycle

That most likely means there is a fault in the control board. You need to contact the manufacturer or retailer for service.

After self cleaning the range the door won't open....
The oven door lock needs approximately 1 hour to cool down before the oven door can be opened after a self cleaning cycle has finished. If the lock does not open after the oven has cooled down, you can try....1) Unplugging the range or shut off the circuit breaker for 5 minutes. Plug the range back in or turn on the circuit breaker. Set the clock and try moving the door lock lever or opening the door. 2) Set the self-clean cycle again and only allow it to work for 15 minutes. Cancel the self-clean cycle and allow the oven to cool. Gently try moving the door lock lever or opening the door.

Hope this may help;

Oven shut down during Self-cleaning

tde, sounds like your thermal fuse (TC0) opened on the back side of the oven. If this opens, it will shut the oven down. This happens alot during self cleaning on built ins. Sometimes I have to re-route the tco to a different area to prevent this from happening. Your part number is 4451442. You will have to pull the oven out far enough to remove the back paneling and replace the back.
