Several possiblities:  If the burners work properly, it is not the power.  Then, move on to the element itself.  Most elements have a single screw or snap assembly which hold them in.  With the power off, remove the element and use a multimeter to see if the unit is conductive.  If it is damaged in any way, replace it.  If the connectors are corroded, clean them with fine sandpaper.  If the element is good, your switch is bad.  If the unit has a relay package running the element, it will likely be the cause.  You should be able to see this information from the diagram on the back of the unit.

I'm wondering if my Jenn-Air Model JER8885QCS needs a new probe or not. It's a...


As oven probes age, they can sometimes generate error codes on kitchen ranges and render them inoperative. The error code varies between models, but can be found with the technical documentation that comes with your range. Most manufacturers place a tech sheet somewhere along the back of the range, or inside the console for qualified technicians to use as a troubleshooting aid. Refer to this if an “F” code is displayed on your operator console. The probe may also exhibit other symptoms without generating an error code. You could have undesired heating results (too hot or too cold), or slow preheat times.

The location of the oven probe can vary on different models as well. It will be mounted on the back or side of the oven wall (usually in the upper right or upper left corner). If you suspect you have a bad oven probe, a resistance check can be performed to determine if the probe is good. To accomplish this, unplug the range and remove the back panel. There are still dangerous voltages present even when the oven is not on. There will be two heat insulated wires coming from the oven probe behind the oven. Disconnect the wires and perform a resistance reading across both wires at room temperature. If the probe is good, it should read around 1100-1200 ohms*. If the reading is too low (shorted) or too high (open), replace it. However, I would take a good look at the interconnecting wiring FIRST. If you have a connector plug on the oven probe, often the plug pins will oxidize and not make good contact. This gives false readings and can lead to erroneous error codes. Some manufacturers recommend cutting the connector plug off completely and hardwiring the leads together by using heat resistant ceramic wire lugs. This provides a more permanent and reliable connection. The lugs can be purchased at most hardware stores. A new oven probe roughly costs about $35 - $45 and can be found on line at several appliance parts websites. Higher end model prices may be more.

To replace the oven probe, simply remove the mounting screw from inside the oven cavity, disconnect the wires and pull the probe out. Insert the new probe by feeding the wires through the opening in the back of the oven first and out the back through the insulation (a long screwdriver can assist you in making a visible hole through the heat insulation to feed the wires easier). Once you have the wires through the back of the oven, reinsert the mounting screw and connect the wires leads together. Reinstall back panel.

*NOTE: Keep in mind resistance readings will be higher if the probe is hot. Make sure you check the temperature at room temperature.

I hope this information is helpful..

Why won't my oven and broiler work after replacing the bake element in my Tappan tef361esd?


There are usually no fuses in the stove. Sometimes there is a thermal fuse but it is usually not tripped from a burned out element. the problem may be a burned contact in the oven control or thermostat or a burned wire. Sometimes the contact will burn when the elements burn out.

Oven does not work- broiler does


You have a heating element out in the unit. This element is located in the bottom of the unit. Unplug the stove and take out all the racks. There should be one screw on each side of the element on the back of the stove (inside of the unit) take out the screw on eack side and GENTLY pull on the element and you will see wires conected to the element. Dosconet and replace the element. You might see that one wire is burnt and not conected. You might try reconcting the wire and testing the unit. If that is not the case then replace the lower element and problem solved. If you have any more questions feel free to ask and I will be happy to help. Good Luck.

BROILER ELEMENT WOULD NOT TURN OFF WITH OVEN


I just had the same problem! I would not have known that the broiler was still on, since the red light was off, except that the oven got so hot that the drips started to burn. The only solution was to turn off the circuit breaker.

This sounds like a serious safety issue!

My guess so far is that there is a broiler relay that has shorted in the on position and will need to be replaced. Until then I cannot use the stove or oven.
