Jenn-Air SVE87600B (corrected model#) Grill Fault

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 the tips. If I could just find the temp sensor it would help. I don't see it on the Dwg. Also, I was starting to suspect a bad element. Wish there was a way to be sure before shelling out another $100.

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

    Disconnected, You can test a element with a multi meter for a short circuit (set meter to measure ohms/resistance)

My folks recently purchased a house with a Jenn-Air S160 electric grill-range/oven. The left hand side electric burner cartridge's back burner superheats on the low setting. I've switched the burner...

Sounds like the problem is in the control assy. especially if you switched the burnners and the problem remained. Go to the jenn-air website and see if they have a parts breakdown for your unit.
Record the model number of the unit before you search, you will need that info.

Where can I get Ignitors for my gas grill Jenn Air model 729-0163 ?

If you purchased your Jenn Air grill from Lowe's, it's not really a Jenn Air. Lowe's bought the rights to use the name and place it on the grill. This grill was made exclusively for Lowe's The grill is made by NEX Grill Corp. You can find them on line by doing a Google search. If it is in fact, a true Jenn Air Grill, any appliance dealer that sells Jenn Air kitchen appliances can help you obtain them through their parts dept..

Display on clock fade out but if i cover it for a few min it come back up mod. jenair cook top sve87600b


I've often seen the display on these units go dim due to a failure in the control board. It may well start out as an intermittent failure. Your comment about covering it reminds me that some ovens have an ambient light sensor to automatically dim the display but I don't recall seeing that on your model.

In either case, it sounds like the classic failure mode we often see.

If you can have the control removed, we may be able to help you, we repair oven controllers at

Jenn air grill

You should test the wiring to see if there is any short that is causing the overheating.
If one knob only is getting hot, then the knob is probably faulty and need to be replaced.

I the all knobs are overheating because of heat coming from the grill, then is a bad heat insulation problem, better to call the service number listed on the owner manual and discuss the problem with Jenn Air in this case.

Here you find replacement parts for your model, in case you need to replace a knob.

Jenn air propane grill conversion

It is inconceivable to me that large manufacturers like Jenn-Air and Nexgrill can jointly make and sell an expensive grill and then completely abandon the consumer. I purchased an Jenn-Air 740-0142 LPG and like so many wanted to convert to nautural gas which requires a larger gas orifice. I spent a month on the internet and phone calling Jenn-Air and finally Nexgrill who actually manufactured the unit in China. The Jenn-Air and Nexgrill serial numbers are the same. the 740 prefix is LPG and the 750 prefix is natural gas. After three calls to Nexgrill I found a manager who actually acknowledged making Jenn-Air but declined selling me parts for it as I believe they have product liability concerns. I call back as a Nexgrill owner and finally ordered natural gas orifices at $10.00 each. The shipment never showed up. Calling back again I was told that they really didnt really have any orifices in stock but could sell me the entire replacement gas valve for $28.00 which I purchased. The valves actually arrived on the shipping receipt was from The Grill Services in City of Industry 909-718-6128 . Part number 750-0141/142/593/594.

Forget about pirates in Somalia... we have them right here. Shame on you Jenn-Air and Nextgrill.
