    Most common repairs needed to fix a KitchenAid oven

    Electronic Control Board Replacement

    An inoperative electronic control board can lead to various failures in an oven, including a lack of power or heating in the oven, or prevent the oven from turning off. This is because the board serves as the brain of the oven, controlling crucial operations such as regulating oven temperatures, running cooling fans, controlling cooking time and controlling the self-clean cycle of the oven. If the electronic control board malfunctions, it can disrupt communication between many different components. A failing board may prevent the oven door latch from engaging, or may cause a chattering or clicking noise from the oven or emit a burning odor. Due to the potential impact on multiple components, it is advisable to have a Sears Home Services professional conduct diagnostic tests on the board to confirm if replacement is necessary.

    Control Panel Replacement

    A defective oven control panel can produce various symptoms affecting the appliance's performance. The control panel may be unresponsive, failing to register inputs or adjust oven mode and temperature settings. The display might show erratic readings or become entirely blank. Additionally, a malfunctioning control panel could lead to issues with the ovens heating, resulting in uneven cooking, failure to reach the desired temperature or the inability to heat at all.

    Power Supply Replacement

    If the power supply board is dead, the oven will not power up. The burners won’t heat and the oven light won’t come on. This is because the power supply in an oven connects the incoming power from your home’s electrical supply to the components inside the oven. It also sends power from the control board to the oven. A defective power supply may interfere with the display on the control panel, and fail to protect the oven from power surges, potentially causing damage to electronic components like the main control board. If your oven is not powering up, have a Sears Home Services professional inspect it and replace the power supply board if necessary.

    What to expect when you experience a KitchenAid oven not turning on issue

    How is the not turning on problem fixed?

    Correcting most not turning on problems usually involves replacing the electronic control board, control panel or power supply. However, there are many potential causes, so a thorough diagnosis is key to fixing the problem. An accurate diagnosis is essential to understanding how much the repair will be.

    Sears Home Services recommendations for an oven that is not turning on

    When the oven is not turning on it can be for many reasons. To avoid replacing unneeded parts we recommend having a Sears Home Services professional perform diagnostic tests to identify the root cause of the problem. Our technicians are experienced at diagnosing all types of oven failures.

    What to look out for with an oven not turning on diagnosis

    Diagnosing modern appliances without proper knowledge and training can be difficult. Without using proper diagnostic techniques, fixing your oven problem will only be achieved through changing parts on a hunch. Appliances, especially in the last 10 years, have become extremely advanced, and many models have electronic parts that are difficult to test. DIY repairs on the latest appliance models are becoming increasingly difficult.
