Question and Answers

Q:

KitchenAid Range acting up

A:

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

The first thing that should be checked is the inner and outer broil elements and bake element for heat. I say this because the inner and outer broil element and the bake element must come on during Pre-heat, Baking and in the Clean cycle. If the broil element is not operating, the oven will not bake correctly.

The bake element and the inner and outer broil elements are cycled on and off during pre-heat and during bake. 

So it's important to know if the bake and inner and outer broil elements are working or not. You should be able to tell if these three elements are working or not by turning the oven on when it's cool. Turn it on for a minute or less in bake and then cancel the cycle and carefully feel to see if the inner and outer broil elements are working or not and the feel of the oven bottom to see if the hidden bake element is working.

If you find the inner or outer broil element not heating, the non-working broil element will need to be tested with and Ohm meter for resistance. To access the terminals of the broil element, you can slide the range out and remove the rear panel or you can remove the broil element from inside the oven cavity. NOTE: Disconnect the power supply from the range before removing servicing. 

If the inner and outer broil elements measures Ohm resistance, the electronic oven control board part # W10181439 is likely faulty providing there is not a burnt wire connection in broil circuit between the broil element and the electronic oven control.

Check the things I have covered here and if I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Joey, Thanks for taking the time to give me a hand! I checked the elements as you suggested. All three turn on: hidden, outer broil, and inner broil. I also messed in the technician menu again. All buttons give me three quick beeps, except the 3 and the 6. Each of those displays F2E1 (stuck/shorted key). Is this info confirming the control board W10181439? Other reviews of this model range lead me to believe there are reliability issues with that control board/panel. Some people suggest a self-clean cycle can cause the board to go bad (possibly because it gets so warm during the self-clean). Do you think there is any truth to this idea? Thanks again, David

A:

David; Based on the symptoms and the fault code "F2E1", the membrane/touch panel/user interface is shorted or you pressed and held a button in too long. It could have a faulty membrane switch/touch panel and a faulty "appliance manager" control board. Since you have the tech sheet, follow the procedure for the fault code F2E1. Again, it could have to faulty components; the membrane switch and/or the appliance manager control board.

New information in this never-ending saga... I have swapped both main control boards (W10181439 and W10181438). Fortunately, I found refurb models online, and was able to return them, since they were not the source of the problem. Neither one made any difference to the issues. More measurements using an independent thermocouple meter show the crazy things that are happening. For example, if I set the temperature to 450, the pre-heat takes the temperature up to about 450 (maybe overshoots a bit). Then the temperature slowly drops - as far as 400 to 405 degrees. It seems to stay in that 400 degree range. If I turn the oven off, and quickly enter diagnostics mode to see what temperature the oven thinks it's at, it agrees with my temp meter at 400 or 405 degrees. But while on, the heating elements did not turn back on to get back to the 450 setpoint. If I turn the oven back on, the temperature rises back to 450, and then begins to slowly fall again. What could prevent the control circuit from heating correctly if it knows the temperature (from the temp sensor) is not anywhere near the setpoint? It doesn't appear the temp sensor is faulty (unless it's somehow intermittent, or being corrupted by the fact that the control circuits are on, versus off in diagnostics mode). The keypad manual controls in diagnostics mode still do not work as they should. They didn't with either new circuit board either. But when controlling the oven normally, all keys work just fine. So I don't know how the keypad could be to blame for all of this even though it does indicate a "stuck/shorted key". I don't see anything in the schematic which would indicate a safety circuit that could be interfering, but I keep thinking that would make the most sense: some safety circuit is overriding the main controls and turning off the relays, and the oven controller can't control temperature correctly because of this. Anything else that could cause this craziness? Thanks! David

A:

David: The issue could be related to the oven temperature sensor. A loose or dirty connection in the temperature sensor circuit can cause erratic temps or it could have a faulty oven temperature sensor. I recommend checking the oven temperature sensor circuit and I recommend disconnecting the oven sensor and measuring the Ohm resistance of the sensor. At room temperature, the sensor should measure approximately 1080 Ohms. Measure at the temp sensor and then connect it and make the same measurement where it connects to the control board and you should get the same Ohm measurement. Be sure to disconnect the sensor connections from the control board before making the Ohm resistance measurement.

Hi Joey: I opened my stove (kitchen aid KDSS907SSS03) and the part w10181438 was burned; so I replaced for a new one, but my screen part w10181439 still and is all lighted (like frozen) and not responding to any command or pressing. what do you recommend?, just replace control board par: w10181439 ? thanks
