Jenn-air stove temperature not constant

1994 jenn-air slide in range. The oven temp has a wide degree swing.

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.

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.

Oven will not maintain tempature with what was programmed


You might try calling Sears, or wherever you purchased the oven. Or even an appliance repairman. It sounds like the oven temp needs to be re-calibrated, or buy a thermostat to put inside the oven and follow the temp it says.

G E oven temp fluctuation


No, that is just fine. As a matter of fact, older ranges often had 50 to 60 degree swings in temp. Your oven temp (assuming your thermometer is dead on accurate) is 347 + 365 / 2 = 356 degrees when set at 350. I never mess with ovens which are within 10 degrees of set temp. (when checking the temps, make sure to take the readings after the oven has cycled on and off at least three times, and use a good digital oven calibration thermometer)
