Why won't my KitchenAid Superba oven model KEBC107KBL0 heat up?

I have a KitchenAid Superba oven model KEBC107KBL0. The serial number is XM1201125. The display switches to "Lo" after any initial setting (like 350 C) and the heat never comes on. This started to happen 2 days after a "self cleaning" session (not sure if it is related).

There is a good possibility that the thermal fuse is tripped and has not reset. This oven has a thermal fuse that would interrupt the circuit through the heating elements if it trips. The image below shows the information about this resettable fuse. The wiring diagram traces the circuit through this fuse in red. The location of the fuse is on the outside back all of the oven. To access and check this fuse, you would need to

shut off the breaker

to the oven and pull it out of the cabinet. You may be able to use your installation guide to do this yourself. Here is a copy of your installation guide in case you need it:

Installation Instructions

. If you can access the fuse, you can check it with a volt/ohm meter for continuity. If you pull the wires off and check the resistance across the leads of the fuse, you should measure near zero ohms of resistance at room temperature. If you measure infinite resistance then the fuse is blown and did not reset. You will need to replace the fuse in this situation. I am showing that the part number for the fuse in this model is 4452223. You can order this part from the

Sears PartsDirect


If the fuse continues to trip, you may have a problem with the fan motor for the controls.

If the fuse is okay, you could have a failed control board or bad elements.

If you need more help, resubmit your question with additional details.
