Question about KitchenAid KGRT607 Gas Kitchen Range

Open Question

KitchenAid YKGRT607HS9 When I set the oven temperature to 300 degrees or over, it gives me an error (no code) and it defaults to 260 degrees. I did try to unplug & replug the oven, display shows pf. I did self clean the oven as well, that didn't seems to solve the problem. Any possible suggestion and part number is much appreciated. Thanks...

Thank you!!! I was going CRAZY trying to solve this one. I ran the self-clean last night and when I tried to use the oven tonight, it just kept giving me the ERR message. The manual from Kitchen Aide is useless. Thank you SO VERY MUCH!!!!!

The problem is: the temp seems to be 'stuck' at 260 and will not allow any higher settings.

Calling KitchenAid proved to be unuseful. The manual did not have this item in the troubleshooting pages. Resetting the power does not help.

The SOLUTION:
There is really no problem besides that the temp display setting has been somehow set to be celsius (metric system) rather than farhenheit (english system). Changing this setting somehow can be easily touched off without knowing, thus the "I didn't do anything and yesterday it was working fine..." comment from family members.

The FIX:
Reset the temp display back to farhenheit (F). This is done by opening the oven door, then hold down the 'Broil' button until you hear a beep from the control panel. The same method may be used to change from Farhenheit back to Celsius.

Prevention:
I speculate the inavertent change of the temp setting is done while cleaning the flat control panel. So the best thing to do is to always 'LOCK' the control panel when cleaning the controls. This is done by holding down the keypad "3/lock" for a few seconds until the display shows LOCK.

(The solution was already posted when I arrived at this page. I just organized it a bit by adding some details and a preventative comment. Many thanks to those who posted earlier, solving my issue as well. I hope my writing presents a clearer and quicker read to the next person)

SOURCE: model GS563LXSS stays below 260

More than likely the problem is the thermostat is not working properly. This is what tells the control board to turn the heating elements on and off. It is more than likely sending the wrong signal to the control board. The part number for this is 1394200 and costs about $65

The stove doesn't heat up to the preset temperature. When I set it up to bake at 400 degrees, it goes up to 327 and stops heating further. The same occurs when I put it on broil.


If you preset to 450F what does the oven stop at?
Do you have an oven thermometer that you can use to compare against the reading (327F) that the oven gives you?
It appears to me that the oven thinks its hot enough to stop heating. Could be a temperature reading problem, a comparison error, a display error or a calibration error.
Is there another reboot process other than unplugging?
How old is the appliance?

Range will default to 165 degrees


HI, You will need to check the oven sensor wires that link the actual sensor to the main control board. Make sure that the contacts are connected properly, and not loose, or corroded. If all the wiring checks out, test the sensor for the correct resistance readings.(you will need a multimeter for this test)

The most common oven sensor should be approximately, 1100 ohms when at room temperature. The others may be close to as follows:

100°F - 1143 ohms
200°F - 1350 ohms
300°F - 1553 ohms
350°F - 1654 ohms
400°F - 1753 ohms
500°F - 1949 ohms

If the sensor test is adequate, and the wiring is Ok at the control, this will lead to a failed control board. replace the control in this case.

Tappan Oven #MEF500PBWD heating unevenly


Perhaps the item you are using to check temperatures is not accurate. I my line of work, I use a digital thermometer which records immediate temperature. Perhaps understanding the process will help you see more accuracy in the way you read the temperature in your oven. Allow me to offer this explanation....First of all, place your thermometer near on the top rack as close to the oven temperature probe as possible. This probe is the focal point for your oven and detects the temperature and opens the electrical circuit to turn off the element when the desired set temperature is attained. Set your electric oven to 300 degrees and hopefully, you have a window in your oven to watch. The bake element will come on and the temperature will rise until it reaches 300 degrees. It is at this point when your oven bake indicator light should go out. When this happens....look inside. The element is still bright orange and emitting heat and will continue to raise the temperature in the oven to approximately 325 - 340 degrees. With this noted, you will see the temperature beginning to drop 315, 310, 300, 295, 290, 285 perhaps even 280 or some even lower to 275 and then the indicator lamp will go on indicating the circuit has closed thus turning on the element, Finally there is a variance and no range GAS or ELECTRIC will ever maintain a even 300 degree temperature. The calibration set point is based on the 300 degrees. If your oven light goes off within 20-25 degrees of three hundred degrees, your oven is already calibrated pretty close and I would not attempt to adjust it at all.

F2 error code


Similar problem. When baking over 400 degrees we get the F2 code that can only be reset by cycling the power at the breaker. Replaced the electonics to no avail. I'm thinking its the cooling fan located between the oven and microwave (upper unit) it never comes on which may cause a separate temp switch to generate the F2... but I'm not a pro. :)
