Question about Jenn-Air 24 in. JDB1090AWS Stainless Steel Built-in Dishwasher

1 Answer

Heating element comes on and stays on when not even called for.

Jenn-Air stainless built in D/W, 2 years old. The heating element comes on and will not go off.(hours after cycle completes). It gets so hot, that the dishes can not even be touched, and the plastic dishes on the top rack are melting. The strange thing is that the heating element is switched off (I dont even use the heating element) !!

There is a stuck relay or switch somewhere.

The important thing at this point is that you get it turned off!!!

Flip the breaker if you have to, but get it off, as it is a fire hazzard like that.

You can attempt to diagnose the problem yourself if you like and we can help. You will need a multimieter hat can read Volts, amps, and ohms.

If not, disconnect power and call a pro. But whatever you do, get it off ASAP.

How do I insert my new heating element into my Jenn Air oven. I bought a new one, put it in and it's not heating up. Did I do it wrong


if it has only 2 wires, you cant go wrong, even if you reversed them. maybe the old element was good and it didnt work for a different reason

Burners are not fully heating out to the end


Either the elements are going out or the controlls for the burners are getting croded contacts. Best bet would be to replace both and go for another 7 years :-)
