Question about KitchenAid Architect Series KEBC107KSS Electric Single Oven
I have a single OVEN KitchenAid Architect Series KEBC107KSS. Recently, after my wife used the self cleaning cycle, the oven quit heating. Everything else works. The control panel beeps normally and the proper indicators and lights light up when the functions are pushed. The convection fan in the back wall of the oven turns. But, we cannot get any heat. I suspect a sensor or thermostat of some type. Any suggestions on where to trouble shoot?
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

I have the KA wall oven, model #, KEBC107SS, one yea old, and quits working after everytime I use the self clean feature. Mine is under warranty and is being replaced, hopefully by the warranty company, however, I have done a lot of online research and found that hundreds of people have had this problem with KA ovens, and KA has hung them out to dry, and refused to admitt there's a problem, and leaves customers with an oven that they can't clean. This is completely unacceptable.
Any Canadians here who'd like to help me fight this corporate giant and stop them from abusing consumers this way, please contact me via email.
Also, anyone know if there is a KA model of wall oven on the market that does not have this problem?

I have the same model, 3 yrs old, and the exact same thing happened. KitchenAid made the appointment with a repair company and when the tech came out the first thing he said was "you can never use the self cleaning cycle because this always happens.' He replaced the thermal fuse thermostat and said that a lot of times the digital panel will go out and that will cost around $400. The cost of the thermal part was $80 plus his $90 labor charge. I called Kitchen Aid back, and they swore they never heard this complaint...all you have to do is look on line to see it is a major complaint!

I have a 4 year old Kitchenaid KEBC177 that lasted 5 cleaning cycles before the thermal fuse quit the night before Easter. Joed5555's fix worked in 10 minutes with a screw driver, 2 inches of high temp wire, two 1/4" spade connectors, and some vinyl electrical tape. The part looks like this:
I'm going to stop by my local appliance parts store tomorrow and see if they have it in stock. MAKE SURE YOU TURN OFF THE POWER TO THE OVEN BEFORE WORKING ON IT!!

Thanks to the info here, I grabbed a new thermosensor from the local parts shop ($30) and installed it myself on the weekend. The hardest part was pulling the oven out of the wall mount--the actual replacement was easy. The sensor is in the back, just above the convection fan. Thanks to all for accurate descriptions of the problem and solution. ( I can't say that it has increased my confidence in Whirlpool.)

I had the same issue, the part itself is spec'd to 130c. The over is getting warmer than that during clean cycle and blowing hte part, its is clearly a design failure. I removed the part and hooked the wires together , placed a themal temp wand near it and saw temps in exxcess on the place where its mounted at 165c. this would pop the part every time.
I called kitchedaid and they were happy to send me a free part, and extend coverage for another year. bottom line is that the unit has issues and a classs action suit is needed.

Had the same problem...oven won't heat after using self cleaning feature once. Called local parts shop and ordered Part #9759242. Part ordered, supposed to arrive in 1 day and cost $55. Parts person referred to this part as a TOD. Also told by parts company they have seen this problem before and recommend decreasing the time for self cleaning from default (3 hrs, I think) to 2-2 1/2 hrs. Apparently, the unit allows you to change this.

The house we rent has the KEBC107KSSO and right after we moved in my wife cleaned the oven and the same thing happened. That was back in 2004. The owner of the house said they never used the cleaning function while they lived here and neither did other renters.....Boy did it need a cleaning!
But that's the deal....the cleaning function is so hot it will burn out the thermal fuse.
Sounds like a lemon to me Kitchen Aid.
Now i'm having a time of getting the bulbs out to replace them. The manual is totally inaccurate about how to do it.
