Kitchenaid KGRI801PBL00 oven temp overheat
Posted 01 April 2012 - 10:03 PM
I'm not all that savvy with electric/gas things, but here is the problem:
Turn oven on, set temperature to 350. Display stops @ 348 during preheat, but oven takes off into stratosphere, I put a temp gauge in the oven and it registers 550. I've seen a lot of the OPPOSITE issue showing on the boards.
Tried unplugging the unit, same thing.
Self clean was run prior to this (ducks. I read the FAQs
A local appliance tech replaced the temp sensor, same problem. He said the electronic control panel needs to be replaced together with the thermostat, for $650. I of course can buy a new one for less than that.
Internet is my best friend. There are no error codes when you start up the oven, I figured out how to get into the diagnostics, and all the error codes show 0111 (normal methinks) except the third code shows 01rr, I dont know what that is, but I'm not seeing the E or F codes come up. I am therefore suspicious of the diagnosis, and I'd rather not plunk down $$
I dont have the diagnostic tools to check current, etc.
Thanks for your help

I didnt know about the self clean problems until I read the FAQ. My old house had a real old "manual" electric oven, and we beat the crud out of it, AND IT NEVER BROKE DOWN!!!!
Interesting note - I have a GE oven too, the control board is located above and behind the oven body, but the kitchenaid is right in front, so it definitely gets beat up by the heat a LOT more
I am going to price out the panel on your site, and see how log it would take me to do it. With Passover on the way though, I may not have enough time to do this.
I really appreciate your responses, it is very kind of you all to help us netizens out.
