Jenn Air SVD48600

Hi,
I've been battling some ongoing problems with my dual fuel oven/stove. In November the lower heating element stopped working. A service tech. installed a new board and all seemed fine, however the oven fan was now noisier than it had ever been before. At first it was just the cooling fan that was noisy, but then in December the down draft would turn on whenever we operated the oven and wouldn't respond to the "off" button. Again, service was called. We waited for parts and in Feb a new cooling fan motor was installed. The oven was still very noisy (apparently from the cooling fan) but the down draft problem disappeared for 3 weeks. My service tech told me that the oven was always this noisy, however that's not true. Also, the cooling fan runs for about an hour to cool down a 350 degree oven. This too seems unusual. Now, the down draft comes on again "automagically" when the oven heats up. (Today it came on when the oven hit 450 degrees.) In retrospect we should have just bought a new stove/oven however we now have about $800 in repairs invested so that's no longer an option. Can you help me figure out what's wrong?

I'm also curious if Jenn Air has any specifications regarding the level of noise the cooling fan should emit and how long it should take for an oven to cool down.

Thanks, Kim

Hi Kim,
I,m no oven wizard, but i,m going to give you my common sense-logical point of view here.
I,d suggest that the actual problem, lies within a thermostatic device. the oven heats up, the thermostat reaches it heat limitations, as set by the control-dial.
the thermostat tells the fan to cut-in, to cool down the oven.
As for the noisy fan, originally if the fan was,nt noisey.
when the fan was relaced, perhaps gaskets were damaged or seals were broken. and the unit was never re-assembled correctly, when the fan was replaced a second-time, the service engineer, simply swapped over the fan, with a replacement, reassembling, as he,d removed ( Minus the Spacers Gaskets et,c ) that the first fan-repair guy disregarded.
You really need to get a Parts List to see whats not been replaced Correctly. It appears they,re sending you out an electrician, to do an engineers job.
I hope This Makes Any Logical Sense to you.
Good Luck with the repairs.

Mike @ Compurepair.

Hello!

That is a problem of todays oven, The repair tech should examine the sensor in which the oven meet the maximum temperature. some says replacing of its circuit board panel will resolve the problem but this will operate only a small amount of time and this starting to mulfunction. this cause due to a lot of baking and self cleaning these all are the additives of damaging the oven. The most secure repair tech as far as i know is the service center of the oven because it is their product and the know more how to repair the mulfunction parts of the system.

But if is uneconomical in repairing this oven, maybe you should stake to a new one.

may this help, best regards, melnavz

One of the relay boards is a downdraft relay board....I would be suspecting the main clock assembly as it is the one that shuts down and controls everything. This might also increase the fan speed randomly, turn it on at random temperatures etc., You have to get a new board. You can find it here

    By the way the increased cooling fan noise is due to increase in the speed of the fan as i have mentioned above..

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...


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.

Most likely a bad element. Turn off the power to the oven. Remove the racks.
Use a phillips screwdriver or 1/4 inch nut driver to remove the mounting screws at the back of the oven cavity to remove the element. Carefully pull the element out and remove the wires. Do not let the wires fall back into the holes.

Use a volt meter set for continuity. Touch one meter lead to one terminal on the element. Touch the other meter lead to the other terminal. If you get NO reading the element is bad.

A new element will correct your problem.

If the element reads as good you have a wiring problem or a bad control.

Oven is no longer heating


If this is an electric oven you probably need to change the heating element. If it gas check to see if the pilot is lit

Oven and stove top not getting hot.


The most probable cause is that the heating elements are getting 110V instead of 220V. Check the voltage to the heating elements.
