Jenn air jgr8850adw won't bake

I have a Jenn air range that won't bake some times. Some times it takes 30 minutes for the oven to preheat. I checked the igniter an it works - it seems there is no gas coming thru the element. Could it be a problem with the gas valve? How do I check it? The brolier lights very quickly everytime.

Re: jenn air jgr8850adw won't bake

This usually is an indication of a bad igniter. If this is the standard glow type igniter, it could appear as if it is working, but may not be providing enough current to open the gas valve. This is a safety feature on gas ovens. The gas valve requires a current potential of .32 to .37 amps through the igniter before it will open and allow gas to flow. This prevents gas leakage if the igniter fails to light. The reason your broiler works is probably due to the fact that the broiler gets used less and the igniter is probably in better condition. You can test this theory, if you like, by swapping the igniter for the bake and broil burners to see if the symptoms change. Or, you can simply just replace the bake igniter with a new one. Make sure you secure the power before attempting, though. You shouldn't have to turn off the gas for this. Chances are that's all it is. I hope this helps you.

My Jenn Air JGS8850 takes over 10 minutes to preheat to, say, 400*. Is this normal?


In a word...Yes !

10 min. is actually a really great preheat time. I have many customers who would kill for that kind of preheat, most are between 15-20 minutes minimum to 350 degrees celcius, especially with the introduction of hidden bake elements in the last 10-15 years.

Hope that is helpful,

Good Luck :)
