Hi,

  We have a Kitchen Aid Superba built in electric oven Model # KEBS147dwh7. I bought this oven new in 1999. The problem is that when we use the self clean the Thermal Fuse blows. Here is what happens it works fine while it is cleaning once the cleaning is done and we go to use it no heat. This problem does not happen all the time I would say since we had it we have used the self clean 7 times and I have had to change the fuse 3 times. I checked the Temp. probe and the ohms reading was 1098 at room temp. Then I set-ted the oven at 200deg. and took a reading it was 1398. The only other part I have changed is the cooling fan on top. But this problem started before that went and it's done it since. Is there anyone who has had this problem and could help me? or does anyone know of something I should check? I emailed Kitchen Aid to see if there was an upgrade to this part they said no. Anyway any and all help would be greatly appreciated!   Thank you
