As part of a complete kitchen remodel in 2013, we bought an entire suite of Kitchenaid appliances. The Kitchenaid Architect 30-in 6.2 cu ft Self Cleaning Freestanding Induction Range in stainless steel (Model KIRS608BSS0, and S/N R34312238) has been a nightmare from the very beginning. The repairs have been too numerous to count. Today, however, I have become fearful of using my induction range. I was cooking, in an induction pan I've used many times, on the right rear burner. About 10 minutes after turning the burner on, I saw a very bright arc form between the surface of the cooktop and the pan, with a simultaneous loud popping noise that brought everyone running to see what had happened. The burner shut itself off, and stopped working.
