Question about Jenn-Air JGS8850BDS Stainless steel Gas Kitchen Range
This range has been in place 4 years and has worked fine until the other night. While waiting for the oven to heat up, in either convection or regular modes, it would get to around 250 degrees and then would stop heating further. At the same time, I started to smell a strong odor of gas. I turned the oven off and after it cooled down I removed the flame baffle from the oven burner (not the broiler) and watched the flame. At between 200 and 250 degrees, the flame abruptly goes out and the gas smell starts. This occurs in both the Convect and Regular bake modes. This does not happen in the Broil mode. I took the burner pipe off the oven valve and made sure the holes were not clogged and replaced it but I am still having the same problem. The igniter stays lit the entire time and does not lessen in brightness. It seems as if the flow of gas is reduced to the point of lack of sufficient flow to the igniter but enough to seep past in a gaseous state. Could this be a valve problem or an electronics issue in the command/control structure?
Mike, I think your problem is in the ignitor itself. Turn the gas off and see how many amps it's drawing during the bake mode. It needs between 3.2 and 3.6 amps to keep that valve open. Then ohm out the temperature probe, appox 1132ohms at room temp. You can see if your electronic control will go into a quick test by pressing and holding the cancel and broil buttons together for 3 seconds. First kill the power to the range and power back up before entering. When quick test appears you can check the bake relay by pressing bake. The relay should activate and 1 should be displayed. Same thing for convection bake except the fan should run too. Catriver...post back.
