Question about Jenn-Air JGR8850 Gas Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Jenn Aire single wall oven, model # ?

Wires in the back of the oven got exposed, and I guess were touching the metal. Some of the fiberglass got burned a little, these wires connected to the ovens heating element. They are two different sizes. I'm trying to figure out what these wires are called so that I can order and replace them. The longest wire connects to a black plastic connector with holes (other wires connect to this part also)

"kitchen aid model KeBS107SSS00 enter probe temperaure keeps coming on. I am not using a probe and it won't let me enter convec or normal cooking temperatures." Not my wording but it was the exact problem...

This happened on our Kitchenaid electric stove/oven as well! I unplugged the oven, opened up the outside panel of the oven (same side as the temp probe jack) and found a small metal tab adjacent to the jack. I opened that up to reveal the jack surrounded by moist fiberglass sheeting. A boiling pot of beans had over-flowed on that side of the range the day before. Moisture had gotten down in there and was crossing the connections. Once I dried off the exposed metallic parts and moved the moist fiberglass away from the connections, problem went away. Hopefully, a good self-cleaning cycle will dry up that moisture.

I cleaned my Jenn-Air oven and now cannot get the door unlocked?


Thanks for using FixYa. There is an over-temperature switch built into the electrical panel of the oven. Resetting this switch might solve the issue.

To reset it: Turn off the power. Open the door (if door is locked, turn the power back on and gently try pulling the door every few seconds as the locking mechanism cycles until it is unlocked). Remove the 3 screws below the control panel (screws point upwards, with the head just inside the oven). Pull off the face of the control panel. Let it dangle by the wires so that you have access to the space behind it.

Within the electrical enclosure exposed by removing the control panel, look for a small silver and black device with 2 wires attached to the back. The device is about .5" wide by 1" long and is attached with 2 screws to the sheet metal on the bottom of the electrical enclosure.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.

F 1 code after using Jenn-Aire electric oven

F1 Defective touch pad or clock (ERC) Replace touch pad or clock (ERC). Touch pad is a more common problem.This simple test will help determine whether the ERC (Electronic Range Control or Clock) or the touch pad is defective when F1 error code is present.

Note: Some models incorporate the touch pad in to the ERC as a single assembly, in which case this test is not necessary. Simply replace the ERC (Clock).

Warning: If you feel in any way uncomfortable performing this test or making this repair, please contact a qualified appliance repair technician.

1. Disconnect power to the range (unplug the range power cord or turn the power off to the range at the circuit breaker). It is very important that the power to the range has been disconnected, so please double check before continuing.
2. Gain access inside the control panel.
3. Disconnect the touch pad (also called keypad or membrane switch) ribbon from the ERC.
4. Make sure there are no lose wires, or anything else that may cause a short when power is turned back on. Assemble the control panel back the way it was.
5. Turn the power back on.
6. Wait for at least one hour to see if the F1 code comes back (usually accompanied by a beeping sound).
7. If F1 comes back, replace the ERC. If it does not, replace the touch pad.

Range/oven breaker won't reset

it may be a wire fried or came loose, and is touching metal. if an exposed wire is touching metal, you wont be able to reset the breaker. pull the range out, and remove the back, and if necessary, lift the top and check the wires to the burners also. it should be easy to spot the wire that's causing the problem from there. let me know if you have further questions, shane

Jenn-aire gas stove

  If this is a gas range your problem is most likely your oven ignitor.  As they get older they get weak and takes longer to open gas valve.  Eventually it won't come on at all.  Replacing the oven ignitor will often take care of problem.  BE SURE TO UNPLUG UNIT BEFORE REPAIR!!
  Remove oven floor.  The ignitor is in a cage attached to back of oven burner.  It mounts with 2 screws.  You may have to cut wires and wirenut in replacement.  Doesn't matter if the 2 wires are reversed.
