Question about Jenn-Air JGR8850 Gas Kitchen Range
We have a Jenn-Air model JGR8850 oven (with convection). Over the last few weeks its been taking a very long time to come up to temperature (like 30 mins to come up to 400 deg). Tonite while trying to use it, we started smelling gas. Of course i turned it off and opened the windows.
Suggestions on what could be the problem? Valve or igniter?
The stove top (4) burners work just fine and plenty of gas pressure.
The symptoms you are experiencing are consistent with the hot surface ignitor getting weak.
This ignitor called a glow bar will increase it's resistance with age. With this higher resistance the current that goes to the gas valve for the oven is lowered, causing to open slower (hence the gas odor) and eventually not at all.
This can be verified with an amp probe on the ignition system. It should draw 3.2 amps for the gas valve to open. If an amp meter is not available you can actually swap the broil and bake ignitors as they are identical.
