Question about Jenn-Air Kitchen Ranges

2 Answers

Jenn Air Range SVD48600P Oven heating elements not working. The Bake element burned out ( actually shorted and melted a 1 " section) and I replaced the bake element. Niether the top nor bottom element will heat up. I can hear the relay closing, but no heat. The wiring diagram shows Hi Limit sensor. Can this be "reset"? Where is it so I can check if it is open or closed? Any other suggestions?

    The Over Limit sensor is #23 in diagram#3 from appliancepartspros.com
    The two relay boards are #28 and #29, but I do not think that is it. I am not sure wher the main relay board is for the two elements.

    Thanks for your help silverdragon. It was #23 the Hi Limit Switch like I thought. Had to take the whole top half of the range apart to get to it. Jumpered it for now until I can get the part. Everything is working well.

Above is your parts diagram.
If the element melted then a considerable amount of current must have flowed through all attached Componentry. Including the Element switches which are most likely burnt out too, the contacts evaporate.
You also have Thermistor sensors these too most likely will be Open Circuit, you need to check with a meter, they should be SHORT CIRCUIT.
The sensors cannot be "Reset" they must be replaced.
You simply need to trace out where the wires go BACK to the controller, and see if you have voltage at this point, work back testing as you go, until you find the mains voltage again, the replace any components that are NOT passing the current through.
The circuit is pretty simple, from the mains IN switch, to the Element Control from the element control through the Relay, and onto to the element itself. The relay can also be "Turned Off" via the "Control circuitry" too.

I found the oven sensor, but couldn't find the hi-limit sensor. In the following web page, you'll see diagrams for your oven, along with parts lists and a schematic. The oven sensor is part number 12 in diagram number 8(click and scroll on the diagrams on the left side to go to other pages and drawings). You'll be able to find the part with a little patience. In the diagram that will come up (number 7), parts 9 and 10 look suspicious, also. They're usually a round, maybe 1/2" raised metal encapsulated part with two screws to secure them to a surface, See what you can figure out- here's the site:

Good luck, and hope this helps.

HI,
You should have 120 to the element when not in bake mode, while in bake mode you should have 220 - 240 volt. Sounds like you lost a relay to send the additional power to the element, or you have a High Limit thermostat which could be open. This is a safety device to protect the unit from over heating, this only goes if temperatures increase higher the safety levels, normally set about 200 degrees or so along the air flow channels. I would trace from the elements to the clock and find the missing source of current.
I hope this helps
Be safe with electricity......

My Jenn air SVD48600P heating element dose not heat


Hi. I believe this info. may assist you in getting your bake and broil up and running:

When your heating element burns out, you have to replace it because they are not repairable. If, when the heating element burns out, the infinite switch that controls it also fails, you have to replace it too.

Bake oven element blew


Could be the oven selector switch or the thermostat that failed form thhe element shorting out. You will have to have a ohm meter to check these
