Kitchenaid panel lights

19 posts in this topic

I have a kitchenaid oven that the panel lights were going on and off at times. I replaced the panel (clock)but it still wont come on. Model # kerc607hbl8. Is there some other part that I should have replaced?

yes, the lights used to go on sometimes and off again but you could still cook. Now they went off and cant cook. I bought the new control panel which includes the clock but nothing...

Any part purchased from RepairClinic

can be returned for a refund (less shipping)

including installed electrical parts.

 

if not the Display, then would seem to be the Power Control Board

Display / Control # 2 plugs into Power Control Board # 10

When you installed the new Display / Controller, did you do the:

"INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS / End of Service Test Procedure" programming ?

 

this is the view you will see of the # 10 Board:

On this model there is also an in line fuse that's part of the wiring harness.  I expect the fuse is ok since your problem seems intermittent.  There is also a cooling fan located at bottom/left chassis and thermostats located beneath the control that could interfere with operation if any of these parts are bad.  Does the problem occur after using the oven for a while?

Hi Kohai, It was intermittent for a while as I could lift the cover and wiggle the white wires and the lights would turn on again. Even if the lights were not lit, I could program the oven and it would work. then the touch pad finally just stopped lighting up at all and the oven stopped working also. I couldnt even program it without the lights on the touchpad. Would any of those things have anything to do with that?

Could still be a voltage issue.  How about the surface burners, any problems with them?

I had a problem finding the power supply board on the parts lookup about five or six years ago. It happened to me three times. The power supply was not in the control panel it was down by the back on the right side of the range. All of the breakdowns were wrong. I finally got the correct part that I needed, but I can't reproduce what Idid to find it now.

PDuff is correct, is could still be a voltage problem. Does any of the 120v circuit work, the fluorescent lamp or the interior light. The control needs a neutral for the lights to work, if the neutral is missing the surface elements would still work but the control would appear dead.
