"up" arrow contolls on my Jenn-Air wall oven do not work for any of the functions. They only go down when pressed. As a result, I can only set my oven temperature to 350 degrees or lower as that is the default temperature when starting. The clock works the same way. To re-set the clock time I have to go backwards to get to the correct time.

Re: Jenn-Air Wall Oven up controls don't work
You have a touch pad issue, whats the model and serial ill look up the part for you, sometimes you can just get the key pad, sometimes comes sa a whole console or as part of the electronic control itself.

First thing I would check is the household breaker...if it is good, go to the back of the unit where the power cord hooks up to (the terminal block) and check each side for the appropriate voltage. Should have at least 120 volts from black to center (white), 120 volts from red to center and 240 volts from red to black. If you have all of the appropriate voltages, then you need to concentrate on the control boards. Good luck
Thanks for using FixYa. Error F4 in your range means oven temperature sensor circuit failure. To resolve this issue you’ll have to check the oven temp. sensor circuit if the reading is more then 1100ohms then it should be replaced however, if the rating is fine then it is the Electronic Range Control (ERC) that has gone bad & should be replaced. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
HI, You will need to check the oven sensor wires that link the actual sensor to the main control board. Make sure that the contacts are connected properly, and not loose, or corroded. If all the wiring checks out, test the sensor for the correct resistance readings.(you will need a multimeter for this test)
The most common oven sensor should be approximately, 1100 ohms when at room temperature. The others may be close to as follows:
If the sensor test is adequate, and the wiring is Ok at the control, this will lead to a failed control board. replace the control in this case.
The sensor is, generally, located inside the oven, mounted on the back wall, on the top right, or left corner. There will be two screws holding the housing on the back of the oven wall. Once the screws are removed, the sensor will need to be extracted from the back side of the unit.
if possible, squat down in front of the range and put your ear as close to the bottom of the control panel/top of the door when you close it. there is a small motor that pulls the door in when you use the self-cleaning function. perhaps that motor is running all the time? its quite, more of a humm. this could explain why its locking itself. other than that, my convection oven JennAir has a small fan in the back that runs when the oven is on, regular or convections mode. you can see this fan squirel cage in the back wall of the oven. if you were to pull the range out, you will notice (atleast on mine) that there is another much smaller fan on the backside of the range behind the removable metal panel. what the smaller fan is for, i have no idea. so there are two fans, plus if you have the down draft feature, thats 3 total. hope this helps somehow.
If it's an older oven, forget about getting a new clock. Instead, have it removed (or do it yourself, mark wires and of course discontinue using oven) and try your local parts guy to see if he can send it away to have it rebiult. Best case scenario. Either that or have a technician "bypass" it for you.
i would pull unit out adn look for a bad thermostat on back wall wired inline from bake and broil elemnts, probably tripped during a clean cycle or something got to hot, common for oven to shut down because of bad safety thermo, yet stovetop function without interuption
The first thing I would recommend to do is to reset the power. Turn off the breaker for the range for couple minutes and then turn it on. In the most cases it works. Set the time of the day and try to use the oven. If it would not solve the problem let me know.
