Default kitchenaid oven wiring problem
Model Number: KGBZ276XBL0   Brand: Kitchen Aid   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I was changing the igniter and shorted the feed wires. Now, instead of 120 volts, there is only about 50v - not enough to heat the igniter. I don't have a wiring diagram. It doubt it is a fuse since I still have voltage, albeit insufficient. Might there be some sort of in-line fuseable link or relay that may have PARTIALLY burned? Can I get a wiring diagram for free online? I swapped out the thermostats and both work. If I don't get this fixed ASAP my girlfriend is going to kill me. Plus, T-day is fast approaching. HEEEELLP

In order to provide most accurate advice we need the complete and correct model number. The model number you posted does not come up. Verify and repost it.

Angry RE: Kitchenaid kgbs276xbl0 oven wiring problem

I systematically found that I burned out the dual gas valve heater switch when I shorted the wires feeding the igniter. This cooked the low voltage switch with 120v. Now I have to change the whole valve as is is not a serviceable part. Thanks for your time.

Which part did you call "heater switch"? The dual gas valve does not have such part.

There are three parts in the Bake heating circuit besides the igniter: the oven thermostat, the selector switch and the dual gas valve.

Here is the Tech sheet.

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for WHIRLPOOL KGBS276XBL0 | AppliancePartsPros.com

I found a tech sheet in the oven shell. KitchenAid calls the part a "gas valve heater coil". There are two valves, one with two coils and gas tubes for baking and the other with two for broil curcuits. A continuity test proved that the one for bottom oven baking is open, whereas the other three are not. The book says the valve has to be replaced. It is printed right on it that it is not a serviceable part, and it looks like the wire connectors are molded into the case. I have the document you referred to as well. By the way; the igniters are new and the second test I performed proved both thermostats are fine. Thanks again. K.

This is the first and only time I've seen a such name. Technically there is no coils in the gas valve. Instead there is a bi-metal.

That's absolutely right.
