Question about Ovens
The broil element on our Jenn-Air drop-in oven (model 88370) is falling. It is secured to the back of the oven, but thr front of it is falling and we cannot use the top rack. Should there be clip to attach it to the ceiling of the oven so it does not sag?
Yes, there should be a Z shaped clip in the center of the element's supporting crossbar at the front of the oven. There is 1 screw that goes into the roof of the oven. The clip and screw don't seem to have a part number independently from the broil element. The best resolution depends a bit on your circumstances. If the Z shaped clip is still screwed to the roof, just unscrew it, push the elemet up and attach. If the clip is missing, you can buy a new element for $75 or so, you can ask if the local appliance repair people have anything left over, or you can make one from almost a scrap of anything made of sheet steel. If you have to buy something from the harware store, a steel outlet box cover plate is inexpensive and it already has a screw hole, just cut and bend it. You'll need an appropriate (very short, 1/2") pan head #8 or #6 sheet metal screw from any harware store. I don't reall which, but they're only 5 cents, buy one of each..
