Jenn Aire oven JMC8127DDS beeps twice but won't turn on
Hello FixYa Experts: My Jenn Air oven, model number JMC8127DDS, is not working and I believe the problem is with the control panel which probably needs to be reset. It just beeps twice whenever a button such as Bake or Broil is pressed on the control panel, but the oven does not turn on. This happened suddenly on Sunday. I baked a batch of cookies, then turned off the oven. About 15 minutes later I attempted to turn it back on and it wouldn't work. The same thing happened a few months ago. At that time, A&E appliance repair came out. The guy spent about half an hour pressing buttons and finally ended up completing the repair by just resetting the oven; it was an inexpensive repair and no parts were involved. Unfortunately, I didn't write down the key stroke combination he used to reset the over. (I got the impression it was kind of like pressing Control-Alt-Delete on a computer). I can't get A&E out again until next week, but I am having 2 family gatherings THIS week for Christmas. PLEASE HELP!!! Thanks! Lori

Re: Jenn Aire oven JMC8127DDS beeps twice but won't turn...
According to Jenn-Air (Maytag) if you remove the power from the hood
for 15 minutes it will reset the board. So depending on how long the
power was out the outage would have done this. There is a good
possibility that the outage ruined your board.

The F7 code indicates that the touch pad either has a "stuck" or shorted key. Depending on the oven model, you either need to replace the touch pad or the controller (clock) and the touch pad. (Some Jenn Air appliances sell the two as one unit.)
Please add a comment with your model number to get additional information on the availability and price for the parts. (Parts may be available from a number of suppliers, including jenn-air.partselect.com.)
Are the oven doors locked as well, check if the front panel lock is active. Press and hold both the upper oven Cancel and Cook & Hold buttons for 3 seconds (or a bit longer). (Off should disappear from the display and the Lock indicator will flash.)
If that doesn't help, try pressing Cancel. Then try pressng the Cancel and Cook&Hold keypads together. If this doesn't help, then the control panel or the control itself is damaged and probably needs to be replaced. (Touch pads like this have electrical contacts on a membrane that is impossible to fix long term by cleaning the unit.)
On most Jenn Airs, this means a key on the keypad is stuck. Try shutting off power, inspecting the keys to see if one looks stuck in or feels worn out. Rapidly press each key several times to loosen and clean the contacts. Turn the power back on and see if the problem goes away.
If this fails to help, you will probably need a new keypad for the unit. I don't know what model Jenn Air you have, but you can find parts for most Jenn Air models at Appliance Parts Pros. This is probably an easy fix, but if you are not comfortable or do not know how to safely work on appliances, you may want to call in a qualified tech.
