Question about Kitchen Ranges
I have a ten year old Jenn-Air gas range model SCG20200W. The oven will not heat up at all. I press the oven temp button, set the temp and the oven attemps to start. The temp guage starts at 75 degrees as usual but just stays there and the oven stays cold. The broil feature works fine, the rest of the range works fine. There is no problem with f-codes. Can you help me diagnose the problem. Thanks.
Broiler on top of oven?? if so it might have a second ignitor that is working. Most units now with gas have an electric ignitor to start gas ovens. What they do is send electric current through an electric "wire", when enough current is flowing through wire to open gas valve the wire is hot enough to ignite the gas flowing over it. When you turn on the oven look at the burner and after 1 imute or so you should be able to see an Orange glow in bottom of oven if not I'm sure its the ignitor, if glows then probably oven valve is bad. I'd guess ignitor because most oven makers use this ignitor to mantain a warming temp (around 100 degree's) so since your display doesnt register over inital "start" temp of 75, i'd bet ingitor not coming on at all
