Before proceeding, press OFF, OFF, START on the lower oven display to enter Diagnostics Mode. Then press ERROR CODE to verify the error codes.

And I noticed your request for a phone call. Unfortunately, Just Answer has stated that your request has failed due Credit card issues.

This is normally due to your credit card company not releasing the money to Just Answer.
BUT I'm happy to continue corresponding with you here on our CHAT as we are now to assist you on your question.

Do you have a Volt-Ohm meter and know how to use it? to be able to do any component or voltage testing

will you show a drawing of what you want tested or a facetime of unit
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
kitchen aid says it has to do with water source or in that area?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 11 months ago

The main appliance manager control board is on the left side of the oven .

So you will need to pull the oven out of the cabinet and remove the left side panel to do this testing.

is this something you feel you can do?

not today as I don't have the help to get oven out it is a 3 man job, I went to use it on convection and steam and then it went to code but I was able to go back to convection it rebooted to 350 degrees cooked the chicken and then this morning it will operate for a minute then codes out to ntc shuts down. could it be a water source issue on steam function, can we get together on Monday when help gets here? can I get you phone number to call you then?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 11 months ago

yes It could be water issue.

If the boiler was run out of water or it did not have enough water in it ,could be a faulty NTC sensor , or even something as simple as a loose wire.

I will be on line Monday .

And We can ONLY communicate thru Just Answer either thru this chat or their Premium service system.

I am not allowed to give out my personal info .

even the phone call system goes thru a third party connecting us.

where is the sensor and does the boiler have a water compartment to draw off it for the steam function? what does sensor look likeand where is it exactly and what should it omh out at?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
do you have a picture overview you can send me***@******.***
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 11 months ago

yes the boiler is the water compartment that you pour the water into ..from the front.

The boiler is located on the left rear corner and the NTC sensor is mounted on the boiler .

It is actually part of the boiler assembly.

I have a water line hooked to unit and it comes from the filter that was provided so where would I manually fill the water tank at? isn't automaticly filled. there is a auto r manually button on steam function, I did hit that last night not knowing how to wrk it, could I have emptied the manual water tank. if so where is it?
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 11 months ago

ok So you have your unit hooked up to a water supply .

That is the newer design, the older design you had to pour water into the boiler thru a spout in the front just below the microwave door.

No you could not have emptied the tank , it has no drain .

once water comes in it just sets there until it needs more , which is just more stuff to go wrong with the unit.

Looks great but is more or less useless in real life.

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
now what is your thoughts on the problem? in what I described happened?
Customer reply replied 11 months ago
could it be a stuck solenoid valve not allowing the water in? don't you have a schematic to show on the unit? you are suppose to have the stuff to show me how to fix! I gave the serial and model and you didn't pick up that it is the newer series, this is alarming
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 11 months ago

as stated earlier You either have a faulty NTC sensor or possibly a loose connection or it could even be an issue with in the electronic control board .

But with out testing the NTC there is NO way to know !

And your not paying me to just guess correct?
