Question about Jenn-Air SVE47100 Slide-In Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Downdraft Hello, I have had my Jennair range for 8 years and never thought to ask this question until now. Winters here in Indiana are windy and cold and the cold air comes up out of my downdraft of my Jennair. I am surprised there isn't a feature that will allow you to open and close the draft. I typically place a cloth on top of the draft to keep the cold air out. Any thoughts greatly appreciated. Thanks, Stephanie sterry1@sbcglobal.net

    I have my 2nd JennAir range. This one is 10 years old. It is as cold
    and leaky as the 1st. We live in Wi. So, really cold here too. I liked
    my 1st one. All elec. Grill was like outside grill taste. The
    2nd, I had a repair man here 6 times in 6 months. Wouldn't heat enough
    to sear the steaks. They all said that it is hooked up correctly, draft
    is correct, but btu's aren't enough to cook properly on the grill. I
    can tell you that I have run across several people that were looking at
    this range. I discouraged them with my problems. I will never buy
    another. I also have a JennAir refrig. Will not have another of those
    again either.

    Don't know the answer to these problem appliances. Some of these companies don't want to stand behind them either. Lemons

I would double check that the installer used the correct vent hood outside. The correct one has a spring that keeps the outdoor flap closed when not in use. Cleaning the outdoor flap area may also help it seal a little better. Even if the right hood was installed, you might check to see there is a spring present (or signs that there was one.

I have never had air blow out the downdraft, but I do feel cold travel to the fan unit which makes the floor cold in front of the range.

If this really is a thermocouple unit with a standing pilot, it must be pre 1978, I would suspect a crack in the exchanger first off as thats potentially lethal, not a joke, many heart attacks, headaches, fibromyalgia etc comes from undiagosed carbon monoxide exposures!
And many die from it sadly as it is 100% preventable, a detector would be advised even if you are ok there. A draft can be from the roof car ruting out or misssing? any dryer, Jennair, bath fan, water heater, stove top and many hvac systems create negative pressure in the home by exhausting air and not returning any or less than removed, as in a leaky supply duct leaking in the attic, the furnace pulls X cfm and returns Z
and fireplaces etc will backdraft. gas valves do get tired too.

I wanted to know how many Jennair downdraft electric ranges were out in 2000, with a sealed 2 unit burner and a grill and are there still replaceable plug in units for them?


Modules are still available for some models but you need the model and serial numbers of the range to find out what is available to fit it. The customer service number for Jenn-air is
800-536-6847. You might call a local appliance store if they carry Jenn-air products.
