Question about Jenn-Air JES8850 Electric Kitchen Range

My downdraft fan does not run.

This is a new range that we purchased freight damage, and have replaced front door glass. But everything is working fine when we installed it, but the fan does not run. We think it may be the wiring, but we are not sure. Any ideas?

Kenmore retractable vent keeps randonly going up and down , sometimes for 6-7 times before it will stop.How do we fix it?

I hope you have the $400 appliance insurance. I had the same problem in a new house purchase. First the downdraft wouldnt work, and then wouldnt stop.
It was a micro switch and motherboard issue. Took four visits by the (insurance paid for) techie to get and fit the right part. Good luck

How do I repace the glass on the front of oven door

Click on this to view the diagram.
Put a thick towel on the counter (or table). Remove the door from its hinges and set it on the towel. Be careful not to damage anything, especially glass and door handle. Remove the door handle (#10 screws). Remove the bottom screws that hold #4 outer panel to #9 inner door panel. You can then set the outer panel aside. Collect broken glass pieces if any and install the new glass. Set the outer panel back on, and repeat the other steps in reverse.
That's about it.
Let us know how it goes...

not that I know of but the fans on these ranges usually have multiple speeds. Try using the lowest. The fans are very strong on them. Hope this helps. good luck.

The glass cook top of my whirlpool range cracked and i can`t seem to find a model number anywhere on the unit. help

You might find the tag in one of these places:


  • Inside the cooktop--if the top lifts up
  • On the outside, bottom of the unit
  • Inside the top of the vent duct--if it's a “downdraft” unit

  • Under one of the surface burners, or inside the cooktop--if the top lifts up
  • On the outside, bottom of the unit
  • Inside the top of the vent duct--if it's a “downdraft” unit
Gas or Electric Oven
  • On oven side of the door jamb (with the door open)
  • On the lower drawer jamb (with the bottom drawer open)

Grill Element

I believe this is working as designed! The downdraft fan always turns on when I run my own grill!

Inner door seal

You need to disassemble the door and reassemble with the inner glass well in place, no need for a new door.
If the glass is damaged, call manufacturer and replace glass.
If some other part on the frame has bent, replace the faulty part.
The whole door is expensive.

To replace or refit the door glass you can do the following:

0 Check if there is a hinge stop bracket located at the hinge point of entry on the oven, in that case remove it.
1 remove the oven door by pulling it up and removing from the the hinges. If glass is broken , then secure glass with tape. Have a table with a cloth on top ready to lay the door.
2 Remove the outer screws , starting from lower side of the panel.
3Removethe inner screws. Keep all set of screws ordered, and take note of theorder you remove them. You will follow reverse order in reassembly.
4 the frame will be free now,
5 Remove the external glass panel and leave it in a safe place.
6 Replace the inner glass.
7 Clean outer glass and metal door, re-assemble it and mount it back

Jenn Air Range SVD48600W (Circa 1998?)

ja_question.gif Why are the oven indicator lights flashing? Answer: When power is first supplied to the appliance, a flashing time will appear on the display.
If a flashing time appears at any other time, a power failure has occurred. Press Cancel, and reset the clock if needed.
When the oven is not in use, the display shows the time of day.
If the indicator lights keep flashing after you have tried to reset the controls, then you may need to contact service person.
