    Just flipped breaker for 2 minutes, did no good. Tested continuity in bake and broil element yesterday.they showed good. Had power coming out of switches on EOC board when switches were pushed. TEMP CENSOR ?

The high temperature generated in self cleaning cycle may have damaged a part.
Parts that may get damaged are:

Temperature probe.

Control panel.


Control assembly.

In your case you may have blown the temperature probe. It must be tested reading impedance (Ohms) with a multimeter.

I will send you another message with testing procedures and diagrams. I had question locked and I am running out of time.

Start tripping the circuit breaker for two minutes. This can fix a jammed EOC (timer board).

    If you have no heating on both elements , then you may have blown the temperature probe, the wiring, or the control board wiring.

    The most common is the temperature probe.

    The probe is located inside the oven cavity, it is tested cutting the contacts and reading Ohms with multimeter set at Rx1 on its contacts.

    At room temperature a good probe will read about 1.1K Ohms .

    If the elements do not heat at all the probe will probably read no continuity, that is circuit open with Ohms infinity. On an analog meter the indicator will not move.

    Disconnect appliance first.

    Here the diagrams and parts for your range.

    Here the probe : PS977498 - Part 37 on diagram (click to enlarge).

    All repairs must be done by trained personal.

    If you need a quote on repair ring the number listed on the owner manual.

    Hi, thanks for feedback, I was offline.

    If it is analog meter and the indicator does not move (infinite Ohms), then the probe is bad. The probe must be at room temperature.

    Self cleaning blowing the temperature probe is not uncommon.

The bake element (in over) will no longer get hot, should the element itself be replace or could it be something else? Range model RS675PXEQ0

It does sound like the bake element is probably the problem. Many ovens turn on the broil element with 120 volts to even out the heat in the oven or pulse the broil element. This may be why the oven is warm but not baking.

Preheats very slowly. Also, steam cleaning option seems to not be effective due to low heat. Is there more than one lower oven heating element?

For the oven their is 2 elements 1 for bake and 1 for broil,are each glowing red hot on the respictive settings of bake and broil? their is no trird hidden element. Plus i know manufactures come out with new features all the time,i attend factory trainging sessions a couple times a year but i am confused as to what the "STEAM CLEAN OPTION" IS??
THE SELF CLEAN cycle utilizes both elements to clean the oven adding steam is a new one on me

The elements will not heat up on bake.

The problem is the Bake heating element. This is easy to check and usually inexpensive. There is a video at that will walk you thru testing and replacing. It may be a different model but the testing and replacement will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations of your specific model. All parts come with installation instructions. Not all models are available.

Jennaire broiler doesnt work on slidein range after using self clean oven. Its only 14 mo. old

if just your broil element does not work and the bake element does work after using a self clean cycle then your broil element must have went out , self clean is a torture proccess for any self clean oven and it runs both elements at 500 deg. F, it may be still under warranty , if not then replace the broil element for the fix.

No heat on the upper oven bake and broil elements

I gather you are measuring voltage with respect to the chassis ground?

Self Clean cycle

Is this range electric? if so then does it bake or broil ok? if the answer to both the questions is yes!.. I don't think you need a new range, Cleaning cycle is based on both elements working along with other componets , if you are an handy man there is a mini manual on the range somewhere it could be inside the back panel, that will give you some info, if you are able to read the wiring diagrams ect, or could be your digital control, if you donot feel good about this and most don't I would call a good service Tech...

Self-clean not cleaning

I was wrong (I think).  the baking element probably was burnt out as the repairman said.  He replaced it and I thought selfclean still wasn't working.  In fact, I think I just had to give the self-clean function more time.  Also, I was judging by smell.  We have become used to a bad odor during self clean which was missing when it was broken and still missing after the repair.  Bottom line, the oven was clean after the baking element was replaced, sans smell.
