1994 jenn-air slide in range. The oven temp has a wide degree swing. The oven is about 80 degrees off to the cold side. I can set the temp up abur 80 degrees and it will reach set point 80 degrees lower. Then the temp will vary 50 to 60 degrees. The cook top cooks great but the oven will not hold temp

Re: jenn-air stove temperature not constant
Sounds like your oven probe sensor has got issues. Pretty easy to fix, just look inside oven for the probe (small round cyclinder, about a pencil width or smaller, mounted usually in the back top corners), remove the two screws, then slide it out. Some models have the probes where you will have to take the back off to get to them. If your probe is ok, then you might possibly have an issue with your main oven control, which may be computer or knob type. These (especially if computer driven) can be very expensive to fix, and some need calibration. Good luck and let me know if you need any other assistance.

Use a multi-meter to check the ohm's resistance of your temperature probe: should be 1100 ohms at room temperature = 72 degrees F. Range Stove Oven Temperature Sensor 12001655Multimeter DM10T
After time, the connections between the temp. probe and the control board usually benefit from being disconnected and re-connected to keep corrosion from interfering with the resistance redings the control "sees" from the probe...
It is normal for the thermal device to turn on and off. Obtaining a steady temp is not always possible. When setting a temperature on some ovens, they have what is called a tolerance point. That means a set temperature has a range of a few degrees up or down. At the Down point, the oven is triggered to energize the coils and bring the interior of the oven back to the settings desired. The other factor is opening the oven and allowing cool air to enter, or in some cases a leaking door seal allows air to enter and heat to escape.
Hi and good morning too you. First of all the normal oven swing is about twenty degrees, so your swing of thirty up is ok. I would center the swing, bake button, should see the offset screen. Change the setting to -10 and try again to check you temps. This drift you have is ok and by changing the offset should able you to control your overheating issue and center your swing.
Good Luck, feel free to ask for more help if needed.
Hello & Welcome to FixYa This indicates a open/shorted oven temperature sensor and to solve this problem the sensor needs replacement. If you wan to be sure before replacing the sensor then you can test it with a voltmeter for around 1100ohms....if it reads more then this then it needs replacement however, if the reading is around or less then 1100ohms then it is the control board that needs replacement. Please get back to me if you have any other questions. Kevin
oven temperature sensor to the Electronic Range Control
E1 or E2
will not operate if the exhaust temperature drops below
18 degrees F. or exceeds 250 degrees F.
When the thermistor circuit is open (>50K ohms), the error
code E1 flashes in the display.
When the thermistor circuit is shorted (<500 ohms), the
error code E2 flashes in the display.
Normal thermistor resistance values:
60 degrees F. - 15.3K ohms.
70 degrees F. - 11.9K ohms.
80 degrees F. - 9.2K ohms.
HI thanks for your question. A common problem with gas ovens is that the oven will not get hot enough. and the part that's at fault is the ig niter. replace the ig niter. thanks the appliance doc. please rate my answer. thanks.
This is a simple fix as long as the oven is heating properly and the only problem is that the temp seems higher than what the temperature control knob indicates...
Purchase an inexpensive oven thermometer from the hardware store and place it in the center of the oven. Set the temperature control knob to 350 degrees F.
Check the temperature indicated on the thermometer in the oven after 20 minutes. If it's not within 5 degrees of 350, you'll need to adjust the oven's temperature control.
Turn the oven off.
Pull off the temperature control knob. You can usually pull it off by hand, pry it off with a thin screwdriver, or slide a piece of cord up behind it and pull.
Note which kind of temperature control knob you have. There are two types: The first has a screw in the shaft of the knob; the second has an adjustment dial on the back of the knob.
Adjust the temperature with the first type by turning the screw in the shaft with a screwdriver. Turn it clockwise to lower the temperature; turn it counterclockwise to raise the temperature. Turn the screw just a little bit in the appropriate direction.
Adjust the temperature with the second type of knob by turning the dial on the back of the knob. (This dial is held in place with a screw or a clip that will need to be removed.) Raise the temperature setting by turning the dial counterclockwise; lower it by turning the dial clockwise. The notches are typically in 5 or 10-degree increments.
Test the oven temperature again.
Repeat until you're in the right temperature range.
you have a touch pad issue, whats the model and serial ill look up the part for you, sometimes you can just get the key pad, sometimes comes sa a whole console or as part of the electronic control itself.
