KitchenAid ovens can be purchased online or in select home retail, appliance or department stores and are available in several different finishes and sizes. Available options include convection cooking, dual fan heating, self cleaning, removable temperature probe, broiling and LCD display. If the oven display is not working, users may wish to attempt some troubleshooting steps to help determine and resolve the possible issue before contacting KitchenAid for professional repair assistance.


Step 1

Check to make sure the KitchenAid oven is firmly connected to a live power outlet. The power cord should be connected completely into the oven as well as the outlet.

Step 2

Reset the circuit breaker or replace the fuse if nothing on the oven will function, including the display.


Step 3

Unlock the control lock setting if nothing will work on the display. Press "Start" and hold for five seconds. A beep will sound and "Controls Unlocked" will appear on the display. The display pads will now work.

Step 4

Adjust the display contrast if the display has power but nothing appears on the display. Press "Settings" and then "Display Contrast." Adjust to a higher contrast by pressing the "Up" arrow button and then press "OK" to confirm.


Step 5

Select "Clock Set/Start" if the clock display is not working. Use the number pads to choose the time of day and then "AM" or "PM." Press "OK" to confirm.

Step 6

Verify that the correct controls have been pressed for the upper or lower oven. The left controls operate the lower oven and the right controls operate the upper oven.
