Replaced failed circular element in main oven. Still not working and code 555 displayed when power turned back on


Make sure you have 220 volts at the wall plug for the oven. If not try resetting the circuit breaker for it. You may need to replace the breaker if it is several years old.

No heat from oven although fan and light are both working


hello gavin..... Usually, when an oven won't bake, it's because the bake element is burned out. The bake element is the black, pencil- thick tube at the bottom of the oven. When the oven heats, the element glows red. This element has an expected life-span of several years. It may last for only one; it may last for many more. When the element burns out, you need to replace it.

This is an inexpensive part and relatively easy to replace. Call your local appliance store to obtain the part and the instructions on how to install it. Joe

Jenn Air W30400 wall oven does not heat.


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.

Oven was not working. Range and bottom warmer is working, but the oven isn't working.
