Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
When using self cleaning, oven door wouldn't open and screen panel went blank.
I searched similar problems on the web and learned that a whole lot of people have Kitchenaid stove with the same problem. They all stated that the thermostat burns when self cleaning. Since technician wanted $190.00, I decided to change it myself. The part cost me $40.00. To instal the thermostat, I removed the panel at the back of the stove and the thermostat is attached with two wires. After I replaced the thrmostat, the screen panel came on and I was able to open the door. I am posting this to tell people that anyone can do this.

During the cleaning cycle, oven died and door locked
Apparently this is a common problem (defect) with KitchenAid ovens of various models. I am not a repairman, but replacing the thermostat was very simple. I pulled the stove out and removed the large back panel of the oven. The was right there in the open, impossible to miss. It looked identical the the replacement thermostat. There are only 2 screws and 2 wires to push on and it's fixed. Anybody can replace this part easy. I hope the replacement part is better than the original!

Kitchenaid Stove Dies After Cleaning
I have a Kitchenaid stove that completely shuts off in the middle of the self clean cycle. I did some research on the internet and discovered that it was the thermostat (aka thermal fuse). It was a real easy repair. All you have to do is take off the back panel. You will see the thermostat in the upper left of the machine (there are two wires connected to the part). The part is fairly expensive around $45. No one in town had the part so I had to order from Partselect.com (which was very easy to find). The repair was simple, all you need to do is connect the new thermostat in place of the old one. Dont forget to unplug the stove before you get started. After replacing the part the stove worked just fine. From what I can tell from the research this is a common problem and there is no permanent fix. We are resigned to not using the self clean mode on the stove which is a drag, but it is cheaper than buying a new stove.

Self-clean feature caused control panel to die and oven to stop working. Oven door remained locked.
This is a known defect with KitchenAid ovens. If your range is out of warranty, KitchenAid will do nothing to help. (They should really issue a recall). I figured out through research that the part is the thermostat fuse, so instead of paying a repair company to come to the house, diagnose the problem and do the repair, I ordered the part on PartSelect.com. I probably saved myself $200. My husband did the repair and said it was really easy. It took him 10 - 15 minutes. He took a picture of the back of the oven with the back panel off, showing where the part is located, but looks like I'm not able upload images. All you need is to be able to pull your range out to get to the back of it and a screwdriver to remove some screws and replace the thermostat. Once the part was replaced, the control panel came back on, the oven unlocked and is now working again!! I will not use Self-Clean again - that is for sure!

Gas range oven door stuck shut during self-clean
The thermostat blew during the oven self-cleaning cycle (apparently it's a common problem). Take off a few panels in the back of the range with a screw driver. Pull the terminals off the existing thermostat and (safely) touch them to make sure it's not some other problem. If the oven comes back to life order this part. Unscrew the blown thermostat and attach the new, plug the terminals and re-attach the back panels.

The oven door was locked and the touch panel was off line after a self clean cycle.
I simply removed the rear panel of the range and replaced the high temp. thermostat. The upper rear panel behind the back splash does not need to be removed.

Hi. I had the oven on at 500 degrees. After i was done i had shut it off, i needed to use the oven again and the display was blank, and the oven will not turn on. Will replacing the thermostat do the trick?

Hi Frank, Thank you for your question. It sounds more like your display module will need to be replaced as that is the part with the display on it. However you would be able to test your thermostat with a multi meter to determine if it is working correctly or not. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

My KitchenAid electric oven always burns everything up. What causes this
For model number KDRP463LSS0
PartSelect logo
Hello Leslie, Thank you for the question. I suggest testing the temperature sensor, PartSelect Number: PS11748765. Testing the temperature sensor probe on your oven is easy. With the sensor at room temperature, measure the resistance between the two prongs at the end of the sensor connector. The resistance of the sensor should read approximately 1080 – 1090 ohms at room temperature. Thank you for your inquiry, good luck with this repair!
