Hi,

The reason why i asked you for the make and model no. was that the rinse aid dispenser was actually banned on many older dishwashers because of a fire hazard.As far as the dispenser, try using bleach, not too much, 1/2 cup and run with out dish washing soap. it should work.

I purchased a house w/ a Jenn-air elect. drop-in range. The Model # is 87946 or 87847. I believe the range was originally purchased in 1975. I am in need of an instruction manual .


Neither of these are a typical Jenn-Air model number. http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search.jsp?siteCd=JA_EN_US suggests that the model number is on the back wall under the burner on the right side of a drop-in cooktop. For a range the model number is often on the frame inside the oven door, below the vent or on the back of the top of the range.

87946 or 87847 are the part numbers for the cartridges (the elements or the surrounding housing).

Look at the model number locations at the "Help me find my model number" link and try to locate a model number on your range. Then enter that model into the search box. The manual is probably available with the correct part number. Most Jenn-air electric cooktops start with JEC in their model number.

I hope this helps you locate the manual.

"change water filter" continues to flash when dispensing water


I believe your new Jen-Air has an old model number placed above your post. If you had a newer model nuber I could see if changes were made to the solution. The ods are no changes. I it possible you may have missed removal of te flilter plug? It also is your first time and to press the 2 buttons at same time for 8 to 10 seconds may be a little confusing. I bet after this time you will have this down to an art! here is what I could find without the vorrect model number if that is what happened or not.Jenn-Air
Press and hold the light and lock buttons until the change filter light flashes.
It is very easy to reset your filter indicator light on your Maytag refrigerator. Simply press and hold the light and lock buttons, on the dispenser, for about three (3) seconds, until the change filter light blinks.

I'm getting an error message F2 and the broiler will not turn off. It came on bt itself while the bake was on!


Hi,


F2 on most jenn-air ranges/wall ovens indicates a fault in the oven sensor or relay board. I'd first check the sensor, (part # 12001655) it should ohm out at approx. 1100ohm @ room temp. If it is OK, it's probably a faulty "broil" relay and suggest replacing the power relay board.

The board (usually seperate from the clock and just behind it), on earlier model jenn-air/magic chef/norge/maytag etc. where known to burn up. part # VO4100260. double check those numbers with your model number at your local parts depot or service provider, those are just the most common for maytag built units.

hope that helps,

good luck

IS THERE A RECALL ON JENN-AIR REFRIGERATOR, MODEL #JCD2389GE ?


MAYBE!  Our Jenn-Air side by side has a similar model number to yours and it was recalled on March 10.  Check on maytag's recall page to see if your fridge has been recalled by entering your model and serial number.

I wanted to know how many Jennair downdraft electric ranges were out in 2000, with a sealed 2 unit burner and a grill and are there still replaceable plug in units for them?


Modules are still available for some models but you need the model and serial numbers of the range to find out what is available to fit it. The customer service number for Jenn-air is
800-536-6847. You might call a local appliance store if they carry Jenn-air products.

I need metal replacement stove knobs.


I was able to find online some metal knobs that MIGHT work, but the prices ranged from $30 to 60 EACH, and I needed 5 - too costly for me!
The following 3 plastic knobs will work on your Jenn Air range, model JGR8875QDS. By "work" I mean they will fit your burner controls, operate the burners just like the factory knobs, and the markings on the knobs for "Off" "Lite" and "Hi" will be in the correct positions, similar to the factory knobs. (Exception: The last knob listed has markings somewhat different than the Jenn Air knobs.)

The following knobs do NOT look like your factory knobs - all three are made from black plastic rather than the (fake) silver metal look of the (plastic) OEM knobs. What I cannot tell you is if the following knobs will be more durable than the factory knobs - but then it's hard to imagine how they could be much worse.

-------- Burner control knobs known to work on the Jenn Air JGR8875QDS gas range --------

1. Whirlpool part number 74008850, made for some Amana gas ranges, will fit the Jenn Air. RepairClinic.com calls it part #1035119, and PartsSelect.com calls Item #PS2086316; it sells for $6-7 (USD). You can see a photo by entering the appropriate part number in the search box of either of the two websites mentioned above. The Amana knob is about a quarter-inch larger in diameter than the OEM knobs, but that does not cause any problems. Of the several knobs I tried this is the only one that tells me what it's made from - "PBT" - or polybutylene terephtalate, a thermoplastic which has a melting point of 430 degrees F and a maximum utilization temperature of 330 F.

2. Whirlpool part number 74009094, made for some Maytag gas ranges will also fit the Jenn Air. RepairClinic.com calls it #1035342, and PartsSelect.com calls it #PS2086544. It sells for about $9 on both sites. You can see it here: 
www.repairclinic.com/Appliance-Parts?s=t-74009094-%3d%3d
Like the Amana knob, the Maytag knob is about a quarter-inch larger than the OEM Jenn Air knob.

3. A third knob worth considering is available from AmericanStoveParts.com for $7 each. The front of the knob looks much like their OEM Replica Burner Knob 1104-B (but don't order #1104-B - it won't fit). The knob that will fit the Jenn Air is AmericanStoveParts #1214-025-B. You will have to order it by phone or email because it is not shown on their website. (As of October 2009, none of the knobs shown on AmericanStoveParts.com will fit the Jenn Air.) 

Notice the markings on the 1214-025-B are not quite like the Jenn Air markings, with the "HI" and the "LITE" positions being reversed. Also, the 1214-025-B knob I received did not have the white dot at the "OFF" position nor the white ring around the periphery as shown in the photo of the 1104B knob. The total diameter of the the 1214-025-B is 2" - the same as the factory Jenn Air knobs.

While I don't think the front of 1214-025-B looks quite as nice as the Amana or Maytag knobs, the back of the knob appears to be much more robust than on the others. The extra plastic MAY make this one more durable. 
-------------
I have installed the Amana knobs (#1), and I will report back if it proves unsatisfactory.

Jenair oven valve knob


In less than 6 years of normal use, 4 burner control knobs on my Jenn-Air free standing gas range, Model JGR8875QDS, have either broken or melted.
 
If you want to continue to buy Jenn Air knobs, no problem - several suppliers will be glad to provide them for  $10-15, each (USD). Whirlpool's part number for the factory Jenn Air knobs is 74009148, and you can get them from repairclinic.com (#1035396), or PartsSelect.com (#PS2086597).

If, however, you want to try a different set of knobs, hoping to find some that are less prone to break or melt, then it gets a lot more complicated.

Jenn Air/Whirlpool will be no help; they will tell you the only knob that will work is the Jenn Air OEM knob. Parts suppliers won't help you either - no specifications or interchangeability data exists - and they are unable or unwilling to take measurements.

I can tell you the following 3 knobs will work on your Jenn Air range, model JGR8875QDS. By "work" I mean they will fit your burner controls, operate the burners just like the factory knobs, and the markings on the knobs for "Off" "Lite" and "Hi" will be in the correct positions, similar to the factory knobs.
