1 Answer

After a power outage, our bottom light will not turn off. We have shut the breaker off to see if the lower oven will reprogram itself, but the light comes back on again. That is the primary problem, the second problem is that I need to clean the oven, and I wonder if it is safe to clean the oven on with the light on, or do you think it will turn off automatically when I set up clean.

HI, your oven light is protected from the intense heat in this case so, it is not dangerous to run the cleaning cycle in this case but, i do not recommend it at this time..

The actual issue concerns the oven door pressure switch or, Oven light control switch(depending on the model). during the power outage, this switch was basically fried(power surge). the circuit is , essentially, stuck closed. When a circuit is in this situation. it is rendered inoperable and, the actual device that it is controlling will remain in a suspended state. in this case, the suspended state is the on position(illuminated light). I recommend replacing the Oven light control switch(toggle). this will fix this issue.

NOTE**(Some Jenn air models may have a door pressure switch and a toggle as well that work in conjunction. replace both switches in this case)

Ovens work fine . .ONCE ! Then buttons do nothing until you turn off the wall breaker for an hour. Then the oven works ONE time again.

PROGRAMMER/CLOCK, WILL NOT LIGHT UP, BOTTOM OVEN WILL NOT LIGHT UP. PLEASE HELP.


Hello;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

It sounds like you have no power.

This could be something simple such as a blown fuse.
Or, you could have a bad main board.

Did you have a power outage?

I can not tell you anymore because you did not provide a model number, which is located on a metal plate on the face of your unit when you open the oven door.

Go to your breaker box. Turn power off to your range for 10 minutes. Then turn the power back on - trying to reboot the control board.

Power outage could have shorted out the control panel. Call the power company and put in a claim with your insurance company. Tis happened to me & I was able to reset the oven, even with a glowing bright & dim panel. Thought everything was ok but the upper oven doesn't stay on & the oven probe doesn't work, but it's too late for me to file a claim.

More than likely you have tripped the house circuit breaker or fuse. If you know where the house fuse box or circuit breaker panel is check to see if either one side of the two 240 fuses is blown or one of the two tied together circuit breakers is tripped. If it is a breaker then shut off both breakers completely and then snap them both on completely or they won't reset. It is rare that an oven has a fuse internally. There can be thermal fuses but they will trip when the temperature is out of range.

All the lights, display, etc. work on the oven but no heat


First and foremost check the breaker box. Ovens use 240 volts which is a double breaker in the box. Just to be safe I would click both breakers off and then back on together. If this doesnt work turn off the power and have someone help you pull the oven out and check your plug or connection. You may be dealing with a broken wire in the junction box due to the power outage. If you have a volt meter turn the power on SAFETLY and test if your getting 240 volts. If the connections are good (including the one from the juction box to the stove itself) and you are getting proper votage, unfortunatley you are going to have to get a new control. What happens is with only 120 volts going to the oven everything runs but your elements (they utilize the 240 volts to heat). You can tell time or use the timer but without your full 240 your turkey aint gonna cook. There is 120 volts coming coming from each of those breakers you checked in the garage. Bottom line is the chances of both elements going out at the same time are slim to none and I feel you are probably dealing with a broken wire.

We had a power outage today during the self cleaning process of our double oven.. The Electronic Oven Control panel is dead. No lights of any kind. The circuit breaker is ok. Upper door is locked.


Turn the breaker off for 5 minutes. this will reset the system. If you still have no power then it spiked your control board and it's the board that is fried.

Thermador SC302T clicking noise, locked door after power outage


iodine, open the upper oven, look thru the grill below the control panel on the right side and there is your model number. The issue here is that when the power came back on the oven run thru a test and your lower lock motor has failed. It will need to be replaced. Yes the only way to stop this is to shut off the breaker.

My oven is beeping!


Try turning it off at the mains, then whilst turning it on, press and hold the cancel button.
Check the fuse and any other electrics on the same ring; eg. Washing Machine - this can indicate that the circuit breaker has tripped, replace any fuses and check integrity of electric on that circut, then flick it back on.
