I am trying to get a Jenn Air Oven Model # 88370 working for a freind. There was a short in the oven light switch. It was arcing so I wire nutted off and removed it. Now the owner is saying that the oven and stove top is getting warm but not hot. What can cause this. I don't have much experenice on working on ovens, so any info would be great. Thanks

Re: 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.

I have a Jenn-Air oven model S125. I think it's about an 1987 model. The stove-top and flat/griddle work great but a few months ago I notice the clock quit working and the oven no longer works. Any...

The replacement clock is no longer avaliable from Jenn Air however in my appliance repair career i run across many still in the field and have included a link for this place in Ohio that will rebuild it and send it back to you. What you would need to do or have a company come and do is remove the clock and ship it to them.Their is a curcuit in the clock that ties into the oven and its very probable that the oven not working is related to teh clock. this is their link contact them and see if they can rebuild yours. If you, or even a repair company remove it to be shipped off to rebuild, take time and make a drawing of where the wires on it go so they can be reinstalled properly once its back to you freshly rebuilt.Also be sure to insulate all the wires taken off since some will be live and if come in contact with metal without proper insulation they could short out something else.

Jenn Air Range Model 88370 oven only bakes in the back and leaves food raw in the front.

It will be the oven element that has failed, a new one wiil need to be fitted.

It is located at the rear of the oven compartment behind a removeable cover.

I hope this helps.

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?

Most likely a hot-surface ignitor has failed. If it doesn't consume enough current, the gas valve won't open. It's usually a fairly easy fix, once you gain access to the ignitor and have a new one to replace it with. Make sure you unplug the range...

Jenn-Air stove locked

After the lock indicator light goes out, move the door lock lever to the left. The oven door can now be opened. Turn the selector and temperature knobs from clean to off AFTER THE DOOR IS UNLOCKED. If the temperature knob is turned to off BEFORE the door is unlocked, the door will not open. Forcing the lock will damage the lock mechanism. If this should happen, return the temperature knob back to CLEAN, unlock the door, THEN turn the temperature knob off.

Oven is no longer heating

If this is an electric oven you probably need to change the heating element. If it gas check to see if the pilot is lit
