Jenn-air stove temperature not constant

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

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.

Oven temp fluctuates


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.

Jenn-Air Gas Oven Too Hot


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.

I have a Jenn Air JGS8750 Gas Oven. When I turn on the oven and enter a temp setting..the oven after a few seconds changes it to 100 degrees. Seems to be defaulting to 100 degrees.. Any ideas what the...


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.

Stove to hot burns everything


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.

Good Luck!
