Turn off the power to the oven. Remove the racks. Remove the BAKE element screws and carefully pull the element out. Remove the wires from the element,being careful not to let the wires fall back into the oven cavity. Use a volt meter set for continuity and touch the meter leads to the element terminals. No reading is a bad element. Replace the element. If you do get a reading,the electronic control is bad.
1. Bake or Broil element faulty. The oven cycles these on and off to reach and maintain the average setpoint temperature. If the elements heat poperly during the time they are ON, then they are OK (may be able to see them glow).
2. The temperature sensor probe is faulty. This can cause the oven to think it's hotter than it actually is.
3. The above two causes can be easily diagnosed by a technician with an ohm-meter. If they are both OK, then the problem is in the controller itself. If this is the case you may want to have us repair the controller. We see this fault quite often.
Hope this helps you out. Regards, Bruce www.fixyourboard.com
Hi, this will happen over a period of time and its just heat related. the control panel isn't insulated properly and , there has been a larger than normal transfer of heat to the inside of the control panel where the circuits are housed.
If this is a problem, i recommend replacing the control board. it will fix the dim issue.
Technician just left our house with same issue. Jenn-Air had issued a technical bulletin as the temperature probe is mounted directly to the heating element, and measures the heat of the element, not the oven. Their fix is a revised temperature probe that goes at a 90 degree angle away from the heating element.
If your temperature is consistent, just off by a set amount of degrees, there is an adjustment you can make at the control panel.
