Falling broil element

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..

I have a Fridgidaire Model # PLEB30S8CCC wall oven. The broiler works fine. The oven is very slow to heat up, 20 minutes to reach 250. I checked the lower element with a omp meter it read 20. Is that...


Hello there and than you for choosing Fixya
If your oven does not heat, does not heat enough or does not broil, a common cause is a burned out heating element. There are two elements, the baking element on the floor of the oven and the broiling element on the ceiling of the oven. They are about the diameter of a pencil and typically supported by metal stand-offs.
This easiest test you can do is to turn on the oven and observe the heating element. If it glows red, the element is working. When baking, the broiling element may come on to assist with preheating or to maintain the oven temperature. When set to bake, if the broiler comes on, but the baking element does not, the likely cause is a burned out baking element.
When set to broil, the broil element should glow red, but the bake element typically is not used. If the broiler does not glow, it is likely a burned out heating element.
There are other possible causes of these symptoms, refer to our diagnostic page for some other possibilities.
To test the heating element using a multimeter, follow the steps provided below.
  1. Unplug the oven or turn off the power at the breaker or fuse box.
  2. Follow the heating element back to where it goes through the wall of the oven. Remove the bracket that secures the element in place.
  3. Unscrew or unfasten any stand-off supports that secure the element to the oven.
  4. Pull the element part way out to expose the oven's wiring connected the element.
  5. Label the wires and secure them in place so they do not fall back into the cavity.
  6. Disconnect the wires from the element.
  7. Using a multimeter set to x1, touch one probe to each of the element contacts. Expect resistance in the range of 20 to 40 ohms. Infinite or kilo-ohm resistance usually indicates a bad element and it should be replaced.
  8. If the element tests okay, reconnect the wires, slip them back into the cavity and resecure the element.

Turn off the power to the oven.
Remove the racks.
Remove the BAKE element screws and carefully pull the element out.
Remove the wires from the element,being careful not to let the wires fall back into the oven cavity.
Use a volt meter set for continuity and touch the meter leads to the element terminals.
No reading is a bad element.
Replace the element.
If you do get a reading,the electronic control is bad.

Instructions to replace Jenn Air oven thermostat


To remove the control panel, open the oven door wide as possible. Remove the screws from the top of the CP and the screws from the bottom of the CP. Grasp the CP bu placing hands on the right and left sides of the panel, pull out and down to disengage. Depending on manufacture run you might need to lift up and out to diengage.
Have a cloth on the oven rack to lay the control on so you won't scratch the pretty facing. Once that is done you have easy access. Wear some rubber gloves doctor, this prevents harm to the electronics. Static discharge is a no no around expensive electronics. You can do this. Take your time. Piece of cake.
You will be able to check high limit cooling fan door latch and motors 9if applicable on your model) cool ain't it?

Jenn-air ww30430w dual oven, lower oven, lower element not heating, upper broil element working fine


Most likely a bad element. Turn off the power to the oven. Remove the racks.
Use a phillips screwdriver or 1/4 inch nut driver to remove the mounting screws at the back of the oven cavity to remove the element. Carefully pull the element out and remove the wires. Do not let the wires fall back into the holes.

Use a volt meter set for continuity. Touch one meter lead to one terminal on the element. Touch the other meter lead to the other terminal. If you get NO reading the element is bad.

A new element will correct your problem.

If the element reads as good you have a wiring problem or a bad control.

GE Oven JTP15BW Broil Element on, Bake Element off during baking.


I have the same problem. Just swap the 2 wires that are marked as 'broil' and 'bake' on the controller board. But sometimes it switches back, then I have to swap the wires again.

You might want to leave the 'broil' post unconnected to prevent burning food..

Oven and stove top not getting hot.


The most probable cause is that the heating elements are getting 110V instead of 220V. Check the voltage to the heating elements.
