Question about Jenn-Air JGR8850 Gas Kitchen Range

Jenn Air Older Oven wall unit only

We have an older Jenn Air oven. Stove is counter top model. We bummed the delay setting instead of the timer and now we can not get the oven to come on. It says to push for manuel control. It has a timer knob. Then a start knob and then a stop knob with time. Can't find the book. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    Tried with the breaker and it did not work.
    The thing is I know we have had this problem before and I can't get it now. Up top we have the oven temp knob. Down in the middle is time and timer. Then is the start know for delay and below that is the stop time. It says push for manuel. I think I have tried almost every combination of pushing the knobs. Any other suggestions would be great.
    Thanks for quick response.

Shannbooks The first thing I would recommend to do is to reset the power. Turn off the breaker for the range for couple minutes and then turn it on. In the most cases it works. Set the time of the day and try to use the oven. If it would not solve the problem let me know. Good luck. Gendos. post back...

    I thought your range has an electronic control but according to the later information you've provided it has an analog clock. It makes very big difference. The knob were it says -Push for manual- has to be pushed in and the other knob -Start- has to be popped out. Rotate this knob until it pops out (it should do it at the point were it shows the time of the day on the oven clock), then rotate the -Push to manual- knob to the same position and push it in. Now your oven should work.

(90s) Jenn-air single wall oven locked

The timer may think it is still in clean. The easiest way to try and fix this is to set another clean cycle and let it run all the way. Set it for the least amount of time that it will let you for example try a 15 minute clean cycle. Once it goes through it and turns off automatically it may release the lock, if not you will most likely need someone from service out.

I hope this helps

Just a suggestion, turn the breaker off to the range and leave off for 30 secs. This may reset the board. That's the easy way. If that doesn't help I'll try to find more on it.

Jenn air oven analog clock

If it's an older oven, forget about getting a new clock. Instead, have it removed (or do it yourself, mark wires and of course discontinue using oven) and try your local parts guy to see if he can send it away to have it rebiult. Best case scenario. Either that or have a technician "bypass" it for you.
