Question about Whirlpool Kitchen Ranges

Electric service requirements

We have purchased a Model WFE364LVS 30 inch freestanding electric range. It replaces a Jenn Air. When I pulled the Jenn Air from the wall I discovered a direct connect with number 8 wire going to a 30 AMP breaker. The specs for the new stove says it requires a 50 AMP service and a 40 to 50 AMP pigtail.
Can you tell me what AMPs it will actually draw and if my existing service will handle it? Otherwise, I will have to run new number 6 wire about 130 feet and change the 30 AMP breaker to a 50 AMP.
Thank you,
Jim Conner

You will need to pull # 6 copper for 50 amps of service,The stove does require 50 amps and # 8 can't supply that.

Number 6 wire and a 40-50 amp breaker. Anything smaller will overheat and become a fire hazard, especially at 139 feet.

I have replaced the baking element on our Jenn Air oven for years. However, I have recently put in two replacement elements and they both did the same thing...the element did not warm up at all, and when...


Sounds like you have a bad or loose wire on the element plug. If you could post the model number of the unit I will see if I have the service manual for your range.

Replaced lower element after short


They are generally mounted to the rear of the oven with screws. Not all ovens have them. Please post the complete model number from the range and I will try to help you find the problem.

Jenn-air electric range model JES9800AAB some kypad # not working


Unless they start working again after it has a chance to dry out the touch panel will have to be replaced. This happens when excess moisture gets between the very thin layers of the membrane.
