I have a Kitchenaid Range/Oven KDRP463LSS08

I never should have put the oven into a cleaning cycle, but I did, and now all kinds of problems. The front of the oven, including the display, were too hot to touch when the oven ultimately shut down.

The display is not working and oven now appear doesn't function, no lights inside either. The gas stove portion still functions fine, including lighting the burners.

I have replaced the thermal fuse, and the inline fuse inside, both of which were destroyed. I also replaced the blower fan because it looked old and dirty. I pulled the panel off and inspected the wiring. Nothing appears to be melted, although they are covered in some strange puffy brown material that I can only guess is dust combined with grease, or insulation material that has burnt. I tried to re-seat some of the wires, but none of them seem to be bad. I have flipped the breaker too.

Any suggestions as to what to check next? How do you test the control board, and where would I even go to purchase a new control board?

Ok, did you make sure you are getting 240 volts to the power terminal block where the power cord hooks up to it?

I'd first check for 240 volts coming into the range where the power cord hooks up to. Its usually the two outer terminals on the terminal block where the power cord hooks up to. Middle terminal should be neutral.

Here's the terminal block for your model:
WP8203546 Terminal Block


If 240 volts is present, Then the only other part it could be is the zodiac control board, but Its No Longer Available.

Here's the zodiac control board for your model:
WP8302210 Cntrl-Elec

Hmmm, if the control board isn't available, am I SOL? Is there any other way to repair the unit?

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to locate a board repair service for that board.

The good news is usually the week before and the week after Labor Day Weekend, all the appliance stores have a Labor Day Blowout Sale.

We recommend Maytag, Whirlpool, KitchenAid, Amana, Jenn-Air.
