Question about Jenn-Air Ovens

1 Answer

Very old Jenn-Air wall oven (model w100) will not heat

The oven appears to start to warm but never gets past warm. the little red light that usually goes on when we turn it on is not lit either, we hear a click when we turn the knob, but nothing happens.

We have checked all of the circuit breakers and all are on, my husband thinks for some reason the oven is not get 220volts. I wonder if there are any fuses in the actual oven that might have blown.

Any ideas on things to check before we start to research the purchase of a new oven.

    Thanks for the quick response, that is unfortunate, we had hoped it was going to be simple.

When you turn the temp knob the light will come on the panel but the oven will not light. Stove works fine. We have had this unit for 12 years. Thanks Bob.....


can you hear gas coming in when you turn the know to "ligth" if not the you may have either a bad gas valve or the safety feature has detected something wrong, and has shut the gas off to the oven. first determine if you do indeed have gas., how does the oven light, is it pilot lit, or does it have a glow plug, if its pilot lit, make sure the pilot is running. if its a glow plug, you should be able to see it glow when you turn the oven on, if its not glowing it has to be replaced (or maybe the wiring has gone bad). either way that's where to start.

Pilot light is lit both on oven and stove top... previous user says to turn on gas and lite "sensor" or "2nd pilot" it stays lit as long as oven knob is on but oven burner does not light. "sensor" goes out...


On standing pilot ovens the maker uses a safety device to kill the gas in case the pilot blows out. As long as the pilot is lit the gas safety magnet hold the gas flap open inside the safety valve.To save energy the pilot has 2 flames. The standby pilot keeps the cooper/nickel probe/sensor warm so the oven will light faster, the 2nd pilot is much larger, only appears when the oven control is turned on and this is what opens that valve. So when you turn the oven knob on the gas leaves the control and goes downtown to burner land. If that pilot is lit and that slow opening flap inside that valve is open, then the gas will enter the burner tube and ignite when it hits the pilot. Pretty slick ain't it? So what can go wrong? With age the flap inside the safety valve will wear out, get weak, work a little, then take forever to light and eventually just goes bye bye. When you get ready to replace the valve it ain't gonna be adjusted exactamundo, you gotta tweak it. To do so after bubble testing for leaks and lighting the pilot you turn it on and observe the flames. It needs to be not more than half way up the flame spreader. If it is to small of a flame it will take forever to bake even a pie shell, if it is too much their could be burned bottom and in some cases fire hazards. OOPs.

I ran out of propane...so now truck is filling us up..how do I get the oven working again..how to light the pilot light?


Hi there, hope this helps. On the front of the oven, usually on the left side, where your thermostat is, has a red button sticking out, that is your pilot safety. To light it, you need to open the lower door, and aprox. in the center of the area, is your pilot, has a small pipe going to it, you have to hold the red button in, and light the pilot in that lower chamber, and most of the time, once the pilot is lit, you must hold the button for 60 to 90 seconds. If it does not stay lit when you let go of tthe button, you may have additional problems, let us know. And thank you.

Old Magic Chef Gas Oven won't light


sounding like thermostat isn't working. If you could ohm out the t-stat should be closed when you call for heat. If that passes the test then only thing it could be is the gas valve.

The pilot light for the oven went out.



Relighting Your Furnace's Pilot Light

furnace1.jpg - Turn off the gas at the main valve at your utility box - Wait five to ten minutes for gas fumes to waft away - Get a long match—yes, a fireplace match, not a standard match - Set the gas valve on your furnace to "pilot" - Press the red button as you hold the match to the pilot valve - Keep pressing the red button for 30-60 seconds so the pilot can heat the thermocouple. Release the button and see if the pilot remains lit - If pilot goes out, wait five to ten minutes and repeat the process - Once the pilot stays lit, turn the main gas valve back on - If the pilot light continues to go out, call a technician, who may need to adjust or replace your thermocouple or adjust your pilot
