Hi, if your Electric Oven will not Heat Up Check the Following:

Power Cord If the power cord fails you still may have the control portion working but no bake or some other functions. The reason this happens is the oven takes in 220 volts then splits that to 2 110 lines. Some for the controls, lights, bake and broils elements, and stove top. If your cord has failed on one half of the 220 line or the terminal block were the wires are connected may have melted or failed. You may need to replace the cord and terminal block.


Heating Element This is usually the problem. To Check this first turn oven on to a bake setting,say @350, check to see if element glows, if not shut oven off. If it is warm but does not glow it is getting power and the element needs to be replaced. If it does not get warm remove the element and check to see if it is getting power if it does get power replace the element. No power it is the main control that has failed. Check element for continuity, if none replace.


Temperature Sensor This is a long thin tube like part located usually in the top rear of the oven. It is held in by 2 screws. This can easily be removed by removing the 2 screws and carefully pulling it out. Usually there will be wires connected and insulation so you will need to work it out. Then unplug the connector and check with an ohmeter. It Should have around 1000-1100 ohms if not replace the sensor. Some will have a thin capillary tube attached in this case the problem will be in the control attached to this tube.

Main Control This can cause your oven not to heat. Sometimes the oven relay gets burned out, when this happens the control is unable to send power to the bake element. There will usually be separate relays for bake and broil if you have 2 different elements. If your heating element gets no power replace the control. If your control does not respond at all check to if youhave power entering the control. If you do and it does not respond replace the control. No power to the control Check or replace the power cord.

Usually when the element fails to heat up, It means its usually broke, cracked, or where they plug in gets brittle and breaks. Your best bet is to replace the bottom element.

Hi!
I read your comment about needing to remove the control board to inspect it for damage. Looking at the diag. below, all you need to do is open the oven door and remove the two screws (#2 on diag.) fastening the brackets that hold the board in place and you can take it from there.

Refer to the diag. below If it was me, I would start by turning the breakers for both ovens OFF, then, in getting someone to help me pull the oven out, disconnect the power cord and check the power circuit protection devices like the fuse #4, located above the fan and the power board #25 also located on the back of the unit. Before replacing the blown fuse, inspect the wiring, If the unit is mounted over an oven that was in the Self Cleaning Mode that reaches temps. of about 500 degrees, there is a chance that a wire's insulation melted and shorted the unit.

Jenn Air Microwave builtin oven has no display and will not turn on. Had the power to the oven checked and it's ok. The oven stop working when it was on. The oven is 17 years old.


There should be a "mini-manual" (tech sheet) hidden inside the unit behind the control panel or hidden on the left side behind the grille, which is very helpful when troubleshooting, testing, and locating components.

At our Web site, we have a video available showing how to remove a typical over the range control panel assembly in under 5 minutes.

You should check the internal fuse as well as the oven cavity thermostat / thermal cutout and the magnetron's thermostat / thermal cutout.

You can find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

Our Jenn-Aire Model JMV8196AAS Microwave is not heating anything.



If it is working but not heating, then test the high voltage capacitor,the rectifier diode.or the magnetron. If all this are fine, test the control board.If turntable is not running check also the door switch.

The diodeand capacitors can be tested. The capacitor must be allowed discharge before testing, or you risk to get electrocuted, evenif power is off.Capacitors can get discharged by shorting their two contacts.
Before replacing the magnetron test also the control board.
Replace the magnetron if the checks and all of the high voltage component tests are good, but the unit still does not heat.



All locations, and description of this parts can be located using the diagram here: Counter top.

Parts must be tested to find out what is wrong.

Remember that microwaves are potentially dangerous devices if not repaired properly, the job must be done by a competent person.
A microwave energy leakage test must always be performed when the oven is serviced for any reason.

Regarding parts, contact the seller here to purchase parts.

You can also order from MicrowaveSvc , they also provide parts.

Need to replace JMC7000 Microwave


Yours will likely have a bad high voltage diode, transformer or magnetron, all of which are covered under the extended parts warranty for five years from the date of purchase!

All you have to pay is labor, unless it's less than the two-year full warranty, then there's no charge.

That's a really great warranty!

It's on the back page of the owner's manual.

If you opt for replacement, Jenn-Air Customer Care can tell you which model would be a "drop-in" replacement.

Jenn-air microwave dead


I'm afraid since Jenn Air has become a division of Whirlpool (along with numerous others) the quality has suffered.
I was going to suggest that you purchase a service manual for your unit so you could 'reset' it yourself. Service manuals can cost from $12-$40 US and in many cases obviate the need for 'professional' service calls. However, I couldn't find one offered for your model number so your only choices are to continue to pay for 'service' or examine the guts visually to see if you can locate any reset feature. This is what I would do.
When microwaves fail, older ones generally need a diode, a big capacitor or the magnetron replaced. Newer units are suffering power supply failures as many have moved from the reliable but less efficient 'linear' power supplies to 'switched mode' types that are more efficient but more complex and prone to failure. These later types usually have the word 'inverter' in the model description.

Microwave totally shuts off by itself


My microwave is under warranty. I have this problem before and it was "fixed" one month ago by replacing a thermostat. This repaire is under warranty for 90 days.
I will have a service man to look into this problem.
Thanks MK
