I have a Kitchenaid stove that completely shuts off in the middle of the self clean cycle. I did some research on the internet and discovered that it was the thermostat (aka thermal fuse). It was a real easy repair. All you have to do is take off the back panel. You will see the thermostat in the upper left of the machine (there are two wires connected to the part). The part is fairly expensive around $45. No one in town had the part so I had to order from Partselect.com (which was very easy to find). The repair was simple, all you need to do is connect the new thermostat in place of the old one. Dont forget to unplug the stove before you get started. After replacing the part the stove worked just fine. From what I can tell from the research this is a common problem and there is no permanent fix. We are resigned to not using the self clean mode on the stove which is a drag, but it is cheaper than buying a new stove.
