Question about Jenn-Air JGS8750 Gas Kitchen Range
Sometimes the oven will heat as normal and other times it will take an hour or more to heat to 500 degrees
An extremely common problem on these models is a weak silicon carbide ignitor. You may be able to see the ignitor glowing, but that is not an indicator of it being functional or not. When the ignitor gets "weak" over time, it will not create enough amperage in the circuit for the gas valve to open. You can test this using an amprobe around one of the ignitor leads and looking for at least 2.9 amps, but years of working on these appliances has shown that if you are getting the glow from the ignition but the oven is often slow to come on, you need a new ignitor. Do-it-yourselfers often mistakenly replace the oven valve or the oven temp sensor, figuring the ignitor must be good because they can see it glowing.
Replace the ignitor and your oven will work great again.
