Re: oven element

Model T, either you have a stuck or shorted broil keypad or the relay on the board is welded closed. Try this, remove the back panel behind the control panel. Make sure the breaker is off to the range. Unplug the keypad ribbon cable to the main board. Power the unit back up. You should get an error code. Now if the broiler still comes on you know you have a welded broiler relay on the board. If the broiler doesn't come's the keypad. Catriver.

I just finished repairing mine so I thought I would share. Symptoms:
1. stove top burners function correctly
2. ERC (electronic oven control with the readout) functioning with no error code
3. Could set temperature of oven or broiler and turn on.
4. Could here the "click" of the relays but oven or broiler would not heat and temperature reading would stay at 100.

After consulting the owners manual it become quickly apparent this was useless. Spent a lot of time on the web trying to find a wiring diagram and finally located it undr the stove top. DUH!
After looking at the diagrams it seemed that the common connections to both the broiler and oven elements are:
1. Line 2 (L2 on the diagram) of the incoming 230 volt power.
2. Thermal switch supplying Line 1 (L1 on the diagram) to the ERC
3. The ERC and/ or relays on the ERC supplying power from L1 to the elements.

With a multimeter on the resistance function and power off, I checked the thermal switch and it was ok. There are 2 switches located close together and the one in question is the larger one and has a small red reset button on top. This button resets this switch if it activates due to a temperature over 300 degrees. The other switch turns a fan on and off and is not pertinent to this problem.

I then turned the power on and confirmed power at the L1 terminal of the ERC. I turned the oven on and waited for the "click" of the realy and checked for power at the BA terminal of the ERC. This BA terminal is the output to the oven heating element. It was dead. I repeated for the BR terminal (broiler element output) and it to was dead. To check for power one can use any red wire on a top burner switch for one lead of the meter with the other lead to the terminal in question. Be very careful if one posses no electrical experience as one could get electrocuted. If unsure find someone with experience to check with power on.

Seems the problem was in the ERC as there was power going in and nothing coming out to the elements. The clicking of the relays showed that they were functioning. I took the ERC apart and "rang out" the poer circuit for the elements and found that the power to the oven relay was interlocked through the broiler relay. This is probably to keep both elements from hating at the same time. I found a bad solder joint at the connection of the first (broiler) relay to L1. This explains why neither element would work. Afetr resoldering the connection I reassembled everything and tested. All is now functioning correctly.

Last week when my wife turned on the oven a flash and popping noise happened and the circuit breaker popped. I ordered a new control board part number WB27T10229 and installed it. When I turn the circuit...

The broiler is a different element. Sounds like your main (bottom) element is out. Turn off breaker and remove. To test, use an ohm meter and ohm out the element. If yuor meter reads 0 or OL (open load) your element needs to be replaced.

Upper oven broiler element broken. Need to remove and replace

Yes you can replace it yourself. Make sure the breaker is off or the oven is un-plugged. When elements fail and burn out they will not stop until they have burned out completely.
The elements in this stove are simply held in place by a couple of quarter in head screws and the wires that connect to them are the push on connector type. There may be a support bar as well that you will need to remove as well to get the element out.
You can do this!
Good luck!

Does broiler and bottom element come on when you


If you just start the oven normally, only the bottom element comes on, If you select the broil option, then the top element comes on and the bottom turns off.

Oven erupted like a blow torch why?

The broiler element burned into. Look at the top element and you will see a spot where it is rough, melted or burned. Replace the element by removing the two screws at the back of the oven and pull the wire out a little and unplug the element and plug the new on it.

Broiler element stays on. I had to trip the

a wire in the back of your stove is grounded... open rear panel after unplugging and look for burnt wires going to the element. the wires will be a higher grade than most..
most likely there is no problem with the broil element itself, but the problem could possibly be located in the oven switch (if it is not digital)

Oven and broiler: no heat

Flipped the breaker switch! Although we had looked at the breaker first thing, and it was not flipped off, plus everything else on the range was working: we found out it is actually a double breaker, with one half controlling just the oven, and it can be just partially flipped and you don't notice it. So as soon as you toggle it off and on again, you are back in full power.

the broiler came on automatically??? not a sensor issue. sounds as if you have a broken wire perhaps, or a faulty control panel energizing the broil element w/o being prompted to. does it say its broiling when element comes on??

Jenn-air manual

You can find everything you need and diagrams at  Just type in the model #.  There is no repair manual that I know of.  If you need help solving a problem once you have seen the wiring diagram let me know.
