    there is power coming to the range, the stove itself works, and when i open the range door, the light comes on, so there is power coming to it. I tried switching the switch on th electric panel but that didn't do anything. Ive yet to check the back panel, (im housesitting so a little hesitant to do anything large like moving the range)
    any other ideas or is looking on the back my best bet?

Do you have any other indication that there is any power to the range?
If not check the circuit breakere or fuse in you electric panel.
If there is some indicatioan that you have power coming to the range, then check for a fuse in the range by taking off a back panel and doing a visual inspection.
If no fuse is blown, there may be another visual problem you may see while looking for a fuse.
Otherwise let me know what you see.

Probe light on convection oven stays on. Clock won't display. Oven still works though.


Sounds like the control board is not communicating correctly with the rest of the unit, consult a professional.

I'm wondering if my Jenn-Air Model JER8885QCS needs a new probe or not. It's a...


As oven probes age, they can sometimes generate error codes on kitchen ranges and render them inoperative. The error code varies between models, but can be found with the technical documentation that comes with your range. Most manufacturers place a tech sheet somewhere along the back of the range, or inside the console for qualified technicians to use as a troubleshooting aid. Refer to this if an “F” code is displayed on your operator console. The probe may also exhibit other symptoms without generating an error code. You could have undesired heating results (too hot or too cold), or slow preheat times.

The location of the oven probe can vary on different models as well. It will be mounted on the back or side of the oven wall (usually in the upper right or upper left corner). If you suspect you have a bad oven probe, a resistance check can be performed to determine if the probe is good. To accomplish this, unplug the range and remove the back panel. There are still dangerous voltages present even when the oven is not on. There will be two heat insulated wires coming from the oven probe behind the oven. Disconnect the wires and perform a resistance reading across both wires at room temperature. If the probe is good, it should read around 1100-1200 ohms*. If the reading is too low (shorted) or too high (open), replace it. However, I would take a good look at the interconnecting wiring FIRST. If you have a connector plug on the oven probe, often the plug pins will oxidize and not make good contact. This gives false readings and can lead to erroneous error codes. Some manufacturers recommend cutting the connector plug off completely and hardwiring the leads together by using heat resistant ceramic wire lugs. This provides a more permanent and reliable connection. The lugs can be purchased at most hardware stores. A new oven probe roughly costs about $35 - $45 and can be found on line at several appliance parts websites. Higher end model prices may be more.

To replace the oven probe, simply remove the mounting screw from inside the oven cavity, disconnect the wires and pull the probe out. Insert the new probe by feeding the wires through the opening in the back of the oven first and out the back through the insulation (a long screwdriver can assist you in making a visible hole through the heat insulation to feed the wires easier). Once you have the wires through the back of the oven, reinsert the mounting screw and connect the wires leads together. Reinstall back panel.

*NOTE: Keep in mind resistance readings will be higher if the probe is hot. Make sure you check the temperature at room temperature.

I hope this information is helpful..

From your description it sounds that the board is the problem. I found the control panel you need for a lot less than $200 though.
I found one online from a store that I have bought from many times. Part and shipping is about $153. They sell brand name stuff too and they have great service. I hope that this helped you.

It sounds as if the electronic clock/timer has failed and needs replacing. If you don't use the timer and don't need the clock it can be bypassed so that the oven will still work. A repair person should be able to do this fairly easily.

Tried to change the oven light bulb and when I took it out it said poof and now the whole range is dead. Electricity is going to the unit, but nothing works... not even the clock. Is it gone or maybe...


The first thing I would check, considering you've confirmed there's power at the outlet the oven is plugged into, unplug it. Next, remove the metal panel that is behind the "head," (behind the clock and the controls.) Look for a blown fuse on the circuit board in there. Chances are, that may be all that is wrong. At least it's a cheap fix, and your local Radio Shack should have a replacement fuse for you.

I hope this helps! :)

Oven was heating and we got HEAVY smoke....


Nothing in the elements, thermostat thermocouples are gas filled, sensors have wiring inside, nothing in the liner or insulation. You said this was a stove, and some stoves have a vent that goes up through one of the burners on the top. If you had oil splatter or drip into this it can get into your oven. We do know that some blower fans on convection ovens have a sealed oil bearing, but there would be very little oil coming out of this (drops) and you will notice your fan getting noisier or running slower in the near future. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

My upper oven/ convection function on my dacor ecs230b will not heat


Bake and convection bake settings both use the bottom bake element to heat. It would be unusual for bake to work without conv. bake working. You also have pure convection which uses a different element surrounding the conv. fan on the back of the unit. If you press a feature and nothing happens it's the touch pad. If it comes on then turns back off it's probably the ERC (clock). If it comes on and wont heat only in pure conv. possibly an upper relay board or element problem.
