In Topic: A tale of Kitchenaid KEBC107KSS0...

13 December 2014 - 04:32 PM

In case you needed to hear it again...my other half ran the despicable self clean after Thanksgiving. When he told me what he'd done...it was like a flashback of bad movie all in a second. ("Nooooo! The thermal fuse!") I told him to expect no heat after the cycle. And sure enough...the second oven, also known as a KEBC101KSS06, stopped cold. Off for another thermal fuse.

Endorse, in the most emphatic manner.

Three (four) months later, all continues to be well. I haven't got a multimeter but I've been interested in picking one up. Now have excuse. Thanks everyone!

I ended up taking the front off as well. Somehow in my last time of doing it I forgot how important it was and then realized halfway in that it was insane to think that I could get that front screw on the housing reattached without seeing it. Was fumbling around in there and then gave up, took off the top and front per the service manual. It's amazing how the maxim about thinking you can save time by taking a shortcut...you can't. It's like putting together Ikea furniture. Follow the steps. Sigh. But after I realized that I got my heating assembly in tonight (part came today) with the heating element in it. I didn't test my thermostats to see if they were bad but there was a break in the coil in the heating element. My daughter will take for show and tell. So, long story short, it's nuts to not take off the front. One thing I also remembered is that having those dipped gloves really helps and also draping towels over the sharp edges prevents you from hurting yourself pretty seriously in the process. (Forgot to take pictures. Once you're in it, there's no repose.) So...your mileage may vary...one thing that seems weird really is how simple it is. One screw and then the housing for the unit. If you can, remember the pattern for the wires before you pull them! ;-)

The heat works. There was indeed a snap in the coil of the element. Thank you both!
