I have the jenn air smoothtop model number jes8850bcs and the buttons on the front control panel are not working the bake or convect. Some of the buttons still beep and work but the oven portion does not....

I had the same problem... resetting the breaker fixed it for a while but it the problem always represented itself. Replacing the temperature sensor at the rear of the stove finally solved the problem. My problems started after doing a "self clean"
