Will not cook properly with downdraft vent on. JDS9860AAP Range

When cooking with my JennAir range the flame pulls sideways and it takes a long time to cook anything. When the grill is on the fan is on automatic.
With a frying pan on the burner the outside is only warm . The vent fan is set properly according to the cardboard checker.
What can be done to alleviate this problem?

Re: will not cook properly with downdraft vent on....

There is no solution to this problem. this is the worst stove ever. It is marketed to people who love to cook and it is impossible to cook anything properly. I would rather cook outside than cook on Jennaire. I purchased the burners instead of the grill and you cannot regulate the flame at all. If you hate to cook this is the stove to buy.

You can purchase a 2 burner cartridge. However, the problem I'm having with that is the gas is too high and is unable to cook anything on low.

The glass cook top of my whirlpool range cracked and i can`t seem to find a model number anywhere on the unit. help

You might find the tag in one of these places:


  • Inside the cooktop--if the top lifts up
  • On the outside, bottom of the unit
  • Inside the top of the vent duct--if it's a “downdraft” unit

  • Under one of the surface burners, or inside the cooktop--if the top lifts up
  • On the outside, bottom of the unit
  • Inside the top of the vent duct--if it's a “downdraft” unit
Gas or Electric Oven
  • On oven side of the door jamb (with the door open)
  • On the lower drawer jamb (with the bottom drawer open)

CFM means (cubic feet of evacuated air per minute)

Hope this initial info/idea helps.

I would double check that the installer used the correct vent hood outside. The correct one has a spring that keeps the outdoor flap closed when not in use. Cleaning the outdoor flap area may also help it seal a little better. Even if the right hood was installed, you might check to see there is a spring present (or signs that there was one.

I have never had air blow out the downdraft, but I do feel cold travel to the fan unit which makes the floor cold in front of the range.

If you oven temp is off by +- 50 degrees, thermostat needed to be change. to check and adjust the oven thermostat usually we place the oven thermometer in the center of the oven, run the oven at 350 degrees for minimum 30 minutes and check the oven temperature, It should be +- 25 degrees, if it needed adjusting, there is the adjusting slot screw in the center of the thermostat stem, to adjusting it ( do not turn thermostat stem during adjusting ), turn adjusting screw counter clockwise to raise the the temp, clockwise to lower the temp, turn it a little at a time and wait 15-30 minutes before do the next adjustment until the temp match with the oven knob. To adjust the oven burner air and gas mixture, first turn the air shutter close, you will see yellow flame, then open the shutter until the yellow flame disappear and them open it a little more, now you are done. For the oven uneven cooking? you may have a bad oven burner tube, during operation some of the flame may be lift off, disappear or flame being uneven, you can check it with the kick panels off to see the flame, if these are the case, you needed to change the oven burner tube,

Gas oven

The symptoms you describe point to a cracked or blown out burner. If you can see the flame on the burner the flames should be blue and even in size.

Jennair cook top

Replacing this top is not too difficult. It is secured by four screws on each side. You might have to remove some of the flanging in the back to pull it off. Make sure to unplug the the unit. I would think that the top might be pricy, but if you take your time replacing it should be no problem.
