Ok - I changed this computer module - and it didn't fix it. It still does the same that it did before the parts change. It still will not change from Celsius to Fahrenheit, (following the instructions) and the temperature control is still unreliable - no change from before. Is there another board to change? I will do it, but in the parts catalog listing there are 2 more boards - which one this time? Thanks, Stu

Stuart sorry for the trouble.   This control board controls everything.    The display board and the consol decoration boards are no longer available to order.   Kitchenaid has made them extinct for us to order.

There is a high limit temperature thermostat (thermo disc) in the voltage supply to that control board. The first image below shows the wiring diagram for your range. The black voltage supply wire for that control board is traced in red. The white neutral wire is traced in green. That circuit traced in red shows the thermo disc that protects the control board. That thermo disc is a resettable thermostat that will normally "open" electrically and interrupt that circuit when the temperature in that console rises above 205 degrees F. It will reset at 165 degrees F. If that thermo disc is "open" then it will need to be replaced. You can shut off the house circuit breakers for the range and access that thermo disc as shown in the third image. The second image shows the location of components in that range. Here is a video that shows how to test that thermo disc for continuity using a volt/ohm meter. If the thermo disc is "open" electrically then you can order a replacement from this page: Thermostat Disc for KitchenAid Range Model KESC300HBT8 .

If that thermo disc is okay, then you likely have power to that control. If you are confident that you can safely check the voltage supply to the control, you can measure it with a volt/ohm meter. Use the wiring diagram in the first image as a guide. NOTE: You should only check this live voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it. Wear electrical safety gloves and safety goggles when checking that live voltage. Shut off the circuit breakers to the range as soon as live testing is completed . If the control is getting power but will not light up, then it will need to be replaced. You are correct about that part number for the control board (9782438). Here is a direct link for that part: Microcomputer for KitchenAid Range Model KESC300HBT8 . The 4th image shows how to access the control board in the console. The 5th image shows information on the jumper wire needed for the control. It also shows a test routine that should be conducted following that service. Be sure that you shut off the house circuit breakers for the range before accessing internal components. Pay close attention to the connection of wires on that original control board before removing them. You may want to take a digital picture of the control before removing wires. The wires on that new control board must be properly connected for it to work properly.

As you can see from the above information, this is a fairly advanced repair. You may be able to complete it yourself using the information that I provided.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician diagnose and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

One other option that you may consider is a Sears Service Smart Protection Agreement to cover this repair. That agreement would cost about the same amount as the control board. It would cover the initial repair for parts and labor up to $500. It would continue to cover the range for an entire year for any subsequent repair visits (up to $500 for each repair visit). If that control board is bad, this type of protection agreement would be very beneficial in your situation. You can call 1-80469-4663 (1-800-4MY-HOME) to discuss the details of that agreement with a Sears agent and purchase it if necessary.
