Re: oven light stays on
There is a door light switch on oven side, like the one on the refrigerator,so when you open or close the door it will automatically will turn on and off that light, your oven door is not closing tight enough.the way i fix it is by twisting a towel like a roll and placing it between the door and oven at the bottom close the hinge, then close the door gently by pressing on the door on the top corners, and trying the door to close and see if it turns of the light, your hinges are bend just a bit, and you have to bend it back to the original position, that problem happens when to much weight is on that door, or if the door springs are broken, you can find that out by puling on the top door as to opening it to test the tension on it. then test the one with the problem. and see if they have the same tension. if the doors do not have the same tension that is the problem, new springs are need it.

I'd recommend buying an oven temp dial to stick in your oven to verify the actual temp. Then you can turn on the oven using a lower setting and write down the temp for the setting. Then as you slowly adjust the setting higher and higher, note each temp. If it doesn't show a consistent increase of temp for each setting, you may need it calibrated or replaced. Good luck!
I assume yiu had the electronic oven control repaired. Sometimes the touch pad also goes bad. I have had to replace them at the same time. If the oven indicator lights showing the oven being on shows up on the display it could be that the thermal fuse behind the oven has gone out. this in in the common line and will shut down both ovens at the same time but you will get the control panel to respond to the touch pad.
We have similar Jen Air double oven and with the same problem but only on the lower oven. The doors are interchangeable and the top door fits fine but the lower door will not close completely at the top. It does turn out the light but has never cooked properly. I checked with several appliance repair shops and the hinges are not adjustable, but since one door closes and our other doesn't it is not a hinge problem, just a defective design.
We let this go too long and are out of warranty so I doubt Jennair is going to do anything. I hope someone post a solution but it is clearly not problem with the henges but with the receptacle they go into.
one of three things are possible:either you are missing part of your 240volts at input power,or a bad neutral power wire to heating element,an oven temp control,or the thermocouple that controls oven temp
Hi there, hope this helps. On the front of the oven, usually on the left side, where your thermostat is, has a red button sticking out, that is your pilot safety. To light it, you need to open the lower door, and aprox. in the center of the area, is your pilot, has a small pipe going to it, you have to hold the red button in, and light the pilot in that lower chamber, and most of the time, once the pilot is lit, you must hold the button for 60 to 90 seconds. If it does not stay lit when you let go of tthe button, you may have additional problems, let us know. And thank you.
On my double oven the bottom door was not closing by at least 21/2 inches the upper door would allow the light to stay on . Upon close examination this problem appeared to be the door was too low which did not allow the gasket to seat in the oven cavity, holding the door open. new hinges and receptors did not resolve this condition.This is how I corrected this condition. 1 open the doors one at a time and lock the hinges.2 remove the doors from the receptors (be careful they are heavy) and set aside. 3 remove mounting screws holding oven in cabinet. 4 slide oven forward enough to hold onto receptor sockets on left and right sides lower and upper 5 remove receptor sockets by removing the screws in front of oven(be careful to hold on to the receptor so it doesnt fall behind oven into cabinet)7 with a center punch punch a start point 1/8 inch above the existing screw holes and drill appropriate size hole for screw THE HOLES MUST MATCH UPPER AND LOWER RECEPTOR OR THE SCREWS ON THE LOWER DOOR WILL SCRATCH THE UPPER DOOR .8 attach receptors to oven in new holes 9 slide oven back into cabinet and replace screws removed in step three 10 attach doors into receptors and push locks forward into receptor cavity attach lower door first and check for operation then upper door open slowly and check enough clearance exists for the screws on the lower door miss the upper door . If more clearance is needed elongate the holes drilled earlier(repeat steps 1 through 5) and slide receptor up on upper door. NOTE The receptors are not in a sealed space in the oven cavity and are not exposed to any heat. Periodically check the screws for tightness. After performing this procedure Both doors close all the way and the light is no longer a problem Now 20 minutes cook time MEANS 20 MINUTES COOK TIME.
HOPE THIS RESOLVES YOUR PROBLEM !!!!!
Hi, If your electric oven is not heating then you probably have a bad heating lelement in your oven. This is not that hard to fix yourself... Check out this tip that I wrote about the Oven not heating problem..
