Customer Question
I have a 2...

I have a 2 year-old Kitchenaid dual fuel range. I'd like to be able to light the burners in a power outage. How can I do that? Must the safety solenoid be disabled?

Contractor's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your KitchenAid is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

2 years old, can't locate the model number... double electric ovens, 5 burner gas cooktop.

Contractor's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I live on an island, so that would be easier

After much hunting around I found: Model #KFDD500ESS00, serial # D51814402. I unfortunately expect that your answer will be that it's a safety solenoid that can't be disconnected or routed around which of course makes the unit useless in a power outage, one of the primary reasons I got a range with a gas cooktop. I guess the good news is that in an outage I'll starve instead of blowing myself up. Thanks Kitchenaid for protecting me from myself!!

Thank you!
Give me a minute or two to pull up information on this model

Yes you are correct the way this unit is designed if you were to loose electricity the gas cook top burners will not work.

Due to the electrically held open cook top gas valve assembly.

And it is just not Kitchen-aid other manufactures have this safety also .

But I do agree with you in renders the oven useless during an electrical failure.

Now I would not say it could not be done away with .but it will take some mechanical skills to bypass the valve !
