The grease tube on my Jenn-Air SVE47100 is clogged and nothing is going in the jar. Is there any way to get to the tube. To make matters worse, we tried drain cleaner thinking that the tube is stainless. There is a rubber or plastic tube running along side and it expanded to twice the original size. I am afraid that the tube needs replaced. Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

Re: clogged grease tube
This part is labled drain cleanout 71002402, however the actual draintube part number is 74005855, retails for about $20 probably easier to replace the entire tube, and although its not real clear on the part break down id imagine its simply slid along the side of unit

Make sure to dsc stove or be careful ... Open the oven door and look under the panel, tools that you will need are phillips screw driver and a 5 sided bolt head tool .... there's 5 screws and 2 of the other tool.
HI. This is concerning the relay board that is installed in your unit. I would recommend to inspect the entire wiring harness that is linking the relay board to the elements, and other power component's. If the harness is ok, and connected tightly, and correctly, this will confirm that the relay board has failed. It must be replaced in the case. Be sure to inspect all wiring harness connections for corrosion before you replace the board. This could be as simple as a failed connection.
Obviously it does not work fine. The thermostat sensor or the stat itself could be an issue. Can you see the sensor 'bulb'? Clean it with oven degreaser and steelwool. What is the temp in the oven with a 'oven thermometer'? Is this consistent with the oven readout?
if you remove the tube, it can be gently heated with a torch and the grease allowed to run out, after which, pass large amounts of hot hot water through the tube. to clean without removing, I find a speedometer cable works best to get a path through the pipe, then again, large amounts of hot hot water to flush out/clean the pipe
You may want to check the venting on the unit, motor may be fine, but sounds to me like you may have a collapsed line, or a plugged line, I would also make sure nothing has gotten down into the venting chamber at the top to clog it, hope that helps
Have a look through this lot, there are a few problems for your model discussed, but nothing that sounds like a known problem for the model;
This link has a good description of a common problem with the model (temperature too low compared to the digital readout) and it's solution;
this link has a good collection of reviews on the stove - people were still buying them new in '98, couldn't find exactly when they started selling them;
If you have any problems and need parts, there are still many companies offering them online for this model - just type "jenn air SVE47100 parts" into google and you will get a good selection.
Sorry I had no luck finding a user manual online, free or otherwise, you could try contacting jenn air direct to see if they could send you one;
Hope this helps :)
