Hi, F8 on later model jenn-air ranges/wall ovens indicates an issue with the meat probe, usually the resepticle. The fault is sensing a temp. at the probe above 250. Unless you actually have the meat probe inserted into the recepticle and the oven has heated above 250, then it's not likely the meat probe itself. Hence why the recepticle is likely faulty or in need of inspection/adjustment. Here's how (this may or may not work...sometimes it does though). First unplug the range or shut off the power to it. **The probe is attached on the oven liner via a nut, however you,ll need to gain access to the outer side of the liner by removing the side panel if the recepticle needs to be replaced, but hold on.** You nay only have to loosen the nut and re-tighten it to insure the recepticle has a good "ground" to chassis. there is only one wire attached to the other side (you can't see it) because the probe converts temperature to resistance in the control, that is why this "ground" is essential and can cause "faults" if not secure/sufficient. At times that's all it takes to force an F8 code. Try this first, reset the power and see if it yields a successful remedy. Hope that helps, good luck Hope that helps, good luck

Jenn-Air Oven 4D22 Fan Error


I was troubleshooting one of these error codes on a Jenn-Air oven and followed all the repair recommendations. Most service techs recommend replacing the fan, speed sensor and making sure everything is clean. I did all this and it made no difference. After a bit more troubleshooting I found the temperature sensor to be bad. I replaced the temperature sensor and the fan fault code disappeared and the oven worked normally.

I have a similar Jenn Air oven approximate date 1982. It has a catalytic liner (colored a kind of dark charcoal  with paler flecks), so it is a continuous clean oven during normal cooking.  However, it also has the Accel Clean setting on the control knob. This increases the oven temperature to maximum and also runs the convection fan to burn off cooking residues. This allows the catalytic lining work at high efficiency, and burn off stubborn residues that are not removed at normal cooking temperature. The oven may emit smoke through the top door vents as the food residues burn off, so watch that you do not set off your smoke detector. I switch on the cooker hood fan and also put a fan in the kitchen window (blowing air out of the kitchen), to avoid setting off my kitchen smoke detector if I use Accel Clean.

Jenn- Air Model W256W


hi Randy

first try to unplug the unit, let it sit for a while then plug it back in, if you still get the code look on the back of the unit there should be an envelope that has a paper inside it, that paper should list what the code means.

Clock assembly


my automatic cleaning setting in my oven will not heat up. I set "clean" on both dials and put the lock on, the fan comes on but no heat. Is there a certain system to turning it all on and the timer so it will work?
