Back in September 2007, I posted a problem with a faulty Left-hand Grill Control/Display on my SVE87600B Jenn-Air Range. The Technician, Dyllan recommended replacing the Clock Circuit Card assembly. I am now back with the results: I finally recieved and installed the "clock" or "control head" for the Left-hand grill. Results were mixed. The display lights up again, and the Left Front Grill gets good and hot. However, when the Left Rear Grill element is put on, it shuts down after about 15 seconds and a fault code "F2" illuminates on the display. When I look this code up on the Electrical Print, the chart indicates the problem as follows: Over temperature: over 600 degrees sensed. Sensed by control in time of day mode, bake mode, or over 900 degrees sensed in clean mode." Under the Components to Check Column, it says, "Ohm Sensor. If checks ok, change power relay board."
First off, I'm not operating the range in the Time of Day, Bake, or Clean modes to my knowledge. I'm just trying to use the grill. Secondly, I've looked over this Print carefully, and I cannot see the "Ohm Sensor". Neither can I locate the Power Relay Board either on the Print or in the range.
Any guidance you can provide is greatly appreciated.
Thanks for answering this, and for the heads up in the Experts Lounge, Soulvisitor.
HiwyYa, Soulvisitor has it right, I believe. There is no "Ohm sensor" - but it's obviously related to the temp sensor somehow. I'd recommend testing the temp sensor in exactly the manner Soulvisitor has suggested.
If that doesn't prove to be a problem, let us know and we'll see what else we can find.
If that does prove to be the problem, please be sure you mark Soulvisitor's solution as the solution to your problem, so that he can be credited for it (as opposed to marking my post as the solution).
I think when they are saying ohm sensor, they are trying to say to test the resistance (ohms) of the temp sensor/thermistor.
So either the element is not shutting off (power supply to it), the temp sensors faulty (or too close) or the element if faulty(would be my first step)
Knowledge is from my own version of logic this is not my field of expertise but decided due to "any guidance request" I'd put my 2 cent in, but I'd say element if you haven't changed it or it is the temp sensing device, but then thinking about it if your last board in another area got zapped then maybe it is whatever circuit that provides power to the element

Fault codes for Amana ovens, range, stoves including dual convection wall overs and 'big ovens'. ... F3-1 - Oven Temperature Sensor/Circuit Failure - Check wire connections and ... what does it mean when the oven turns off and f3 shows ... My Amanaagds902ww gas range flashes "Door" when attempting to light the oven.
Replace the switch that controls one of the two burners. One switch is bad. Look also for a blown fuse. if present. Chances are one bad element had shorted out the switch (now stays lit) and also took out one fuse.
On page 23 Also called page (1-3) you will see a test procedure, do that first then check the fault code page. Page 26 will detail what the fault codes mean. F- means there is a fault between the communication boards (replace display board), while FC says the same thing but the result is the different and says replace the PRB. What this tells me is that the problem isnt the board or prb, but that moisture in the area is causing a short, and should be cleaned out with alcohol. If the error code were constant, the board would be bad. In your case, it changes after replug, so I suspect that a thorough clean of the control board area will be all thats needed.
The switch for the optional grill attachment is activating...pull the tray/pan on the left side that holds the two burner grates toward the front...it should shut off. To correct the problem permanently, you'll need to adjust the position of the switch. The switch gets lose over time and slides on its mount until it gets out of range. The purpose of the switch is to activate the blower continuously when using the optional grill accessory. When you remove the left-side grates and the tray/pan the grates set in...you'll notice a protruding piece of metal on the front of tray/pan that fits into a hole in the cavity where the tray sits. Inside that hole is the switch that is out of position. Getting at the switch to adjust its position is not difficult, but you need to remove the upper front panel...KLS
I have had similar problems:
Display was the Part # 71001799 circuit board..$175+labor
Oven blower problem was control relay board, part# 12001689...$224+labor
My solution. replace with non-Jenn Air.
Check Consumer Reports. Jenn Air has high repair history.
my jen-Air has a problem with it continuing to beep. Ive tried to get it to stop by pushing all the buttons. When I pust the off/cancel button it just keeps beeping. Tried the stop timer button and same thing. When I turn on either the bake or convection bake button it automatically just shuts off by itself. It is approx 10-13 years old. HELP, or please tell me to get a new one.
From what your telling me, you have tried all the numbers and only 1,4 and 7 beep when touched. Also, the timer display was set at 0:00 when you started. Also, you followed the manual's instructions first, and looked in the back of your manual in the trouble section, and found no answer.
Did you timer ever work? If not, you should be able to a free replacement of the control panel module from an authorized Jenn-Air repair company. It may be a good idea to contact Jenn-Air first.
The timer shows only hours and minutes when first started. For example 2:05 is two hours and five minutes. It goes into the seconds mode only during the last minute.
F5- means poer to element relays are disabled in cook mode. Reset it(by removing the power to the unit) and if it happens again, sensor could be intermittent or contact on prb(power relay board) is deffective
