Question about Jenn-Air JJW8330D Electric Single Oven

3 Answers

I have a Jenn Air W131 model wall oven and I believe the lower heating element needs to be replaced. I will set the temp at 350 and it doesn't heat up at all. Is my assumption right that that is what needs to be replaced? Is it hard to do?

If this is the problem no it isn't hard at all. Should be able to change right thru the oven without pulling out of wall. Make sure power off while doing this tho. But ist make sure broil does work.

You are probably correct but it would be advisable to test the element prior to replacing, as it could simply be a fuse, burnt/broken connection to element. The element can be tested with an Ohm Meter or with a 12volt battery and a 12volt light, once removed from the system.
1st. Turn the Power off to the oven!
If the fridge is on same line do not turn fridge on for at least 15 minutes or make sure fridge pump is not working before disconnecting the power/unplugging!
The element should be able to be removed by opening the oven and removing 2 screws from the inside back and pulling out a bit. Then two screws holding the wires to the element by connectors.
Clean the connectors and check for frays burnt ends.
Test the element with Ohmeter. Replace if Necessary.
If the element cannot be removed in this manner it may be necessary to be removed from the wall for replacement. Not certain of this particular model but am generalizing.
Hope this helps.
PS. Sometimes you can use an element from a junked stove along side of the road. They are basically the same.
Cost of element $0.00 2 minutes work and get your hands dirty.
No room for conditions or resolutions if the element is still "good".

Jenn Air W30400 wall oven does not heat.


Turn off the power to the oven.
Remove the racks.
Remove the BAKE element screws and carefully pull the element out.
Remove the wires from the element,being careful not to let the wires fall back into the oven cavity.
Use a volt meter set for continuity and touch the meter leads to the element terminals.
No reading is a bad element.
Replace the element.
If you do get a reading,the electronic control is bad.

F3 usually means, that the oven temp. sensor is bad and one need to replace it.
The fact, that it's not heating tells me, the fuse in the back also needs to be replaced (requires pulling out).

My jenn-air self-cleaning electronic wall oven model w131 is heating up very slowly. It took 1.5 hours to get to 175 degrees.


One of the 2 hot wires is out. Flip (hard) the oven circuit breaker to the off position, and then back on. If it did not help - verify 220-240v between the two hot wires on the terminal block behind the electronic control. If there is less - call electrician.

The coils should glow red when working. If the lower (bake) element does not glow it may be burnt out. Some ovens cycle the bake and broil elements during preheat and that mey be why you are getting some heat.

5 yr old Jenn Air Electric oven won't maintain oven temperature


Technician just left our house with same issue. Jenn-Air had issued a technical bulletin as the temperature probe is mounted directly to the heating element, and measures the heat of the element, not the oven. Their fix is a revised temperature probe that goes at a 90 degree angle away from the heating element.

If your temperature is consistent, just off by a set amount of degrees, there is an adjustment you can make at the control panel.

Lower electric wall oven won't heat up


It is highly likely that your heating element is open so I would ( with power removed) verify the integrity of the element by detaching it and making sure it is not elecltrically OPEN, It is nothing more than a big power resistor that when current is flowing,..gets hot but if it becomes open.. you will not have any curent flow thru it ( or heat generated from it). That would be the first place I would look.. It could also be the control that feeds it..
A few ideas to check..
Regards,
Rick
