How to Troubleshoot the KitchenAid Superba Range

The KitchenAid Superba range is a convection oven with upper and lower ovens, a control lock, timed cooking, self-cleaning, clock, Sabbath mode and broiling, among other features. The range can be purchased online or in select stores and should function well with normal care and maintenance. Nevertheless, if problems arise with the range, troubleshooting steps may prove to be helpful when it comes to determining the cause of the issue and locating a potential solution as well.

Step 1

Examine the household circuit breaker or fuses if nothing on the Superba range will function. Reset or replace as necessary and verify that the range is completely plugged into a power outlet.

Step 2

Hold the "Start" button for five seconds to release the control lock if the unit has power but nothing will operate. Hold the "Start" button for five seconds to set the control lock again.

Step 3

Ensure the controls have been set for the oven if the control lock is not set and the unit has power but the oven is not heating or operating as expected. Do not select a "Timed Delay" start if you desire immediate cooking.

Step 4

Calibrate the oven temperature if the temperature seems inaccurate. Press "Options" and then "6" to set the oven temperature calibration. Select "Upper Oven" or "Lower Oven" and then "3" to increase the oven temperature or "6" to decrease the oven temperature. Press "Start" to confirm the selection.

Step 5

Close the oven door and select "Self Cleaning Cycle" if the self-cleaning option is not operating. Do not select a delay start and ensure that the "Self Cleaning" button was selected on your oven.

Step 6

Allow the oven to preheat prior to placing items in the oven if the oven seems to take a long time to heat or for items to cook. Position the racks evenly in the oven and do not block the vents with bakeware. Do not open the door during cooking, if possible.
