Instructions to replace Jenn Air oven thermostat

I just purchased a replacement thermostat for my older Jenn Air oven - model no. 88370. I thought the part would come with directions, but it didn't. Can someone tell me how to replace this part?

The JennAir Model 88370 was built in the late 1970's and early 1980's. It has only traditional electromechanical controls. You need not fear harming any exotic electronic modules.

These instructions are specific to JennAir Model 88370...

The screws are beneath the knobs, below the control panel and on the sides of this drop-in downdraft range. When the screws are out the control panel moves easily. You may find that you can't get to the screws on the side without sliding it forward, and yet the down vent and your cabinetry won't let you slide it far enough forward. I find the easiest way to deal with it is to 1) shut off the circuit breaker. 2) open the oven door to the broil position and then remove it. 3) reach into the oven cavity to raise the drop-in on to a couple of pieces of wood on the countertop to elevate it just a couple of inches. (an assistant is helpful but not necessary) Now you can get to the screws on the side. The thermostat bulb snakes down from the control panel and clips on the right wall as you face the oven.

To remove the control panel, open the oven door wide as possible. Remove the screws from the top of the CP and the screws from the bottom of the CP. Grasp the CP bu placing hands on the right and left sides of the panel, pull out and down to disengage. Depending on manufacture run you might need to lift up and out to diengage.
Have a cloth on the oven rack to lay the control on so you won't scratch the pretty facing. Once that is done you have easy access. Wear some rubber gloves doctor, this prevents harm to the electronics. Static discharge is a no no around expensive electronics. You can do this. Take your time. Piece of cake.
You will be able to check high limit cooling fan door latch and motors 9if applicable on your model) cool ain't it?

It should be held in by two screws in the back of the oven. If the wiring harness is not exactly the same you may have to cut the plug off the old one and use high temperature wire nuts to wire the old plug on the new element.

    The probe goes in the back of the oven with two screws. You may have to pull the stove out away from the wall to get to them.

MY JENN-AIR MODEL #WW2460B WALL OVEN DOES NOT DISPLAY THE CLOCK/TIMER. IT STOPPED WORKING DURING A SELF CLEAN CYCLE. IS THERE A WAY I CAN ORDER THE PART TO REPLACE IT MYSELF AND ARE THERE WIRING SKEMATICS...


Hello,
There is a high limit thermostat that will cut all the power to the upper oven elements. Their is a wiring diagram in this link http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/Jenn-air-Parts/Wall-oven-Parts/Model-WW2460B/1266/0125300?pathTaken=&prst=0&shdMod=WW2460B
when clicking on it,it will say not avaliable. A trick i have found is to open that link and then using your computer tools select the maximum zoom i use IE set to 400% and its pretty ledegable.

Jenn Air Range Model 88370 oven only bakes in the back and leaves food raw in the front.


It will be the oven element that has failed, a new one wiil need to be fitted.

It is located at the rear of the oven compartment behind a removeable cover.

I hope this helps.

Jenn-Air Wall Oven Model #WW30430P F5 Fault Code


I have the exact same problem with an F5 fault code. I also have a new clock assembly. RepairClinic.com said "Jenn Air fault code F5 = Hardware and watchdog circuits disagree / Replace clock assembly (also called the ERC)

Jenn Air Fault code for newer models F5 = Power to element relays disabled in cook mode
1. Intermittent oven temperature sensor or wire harness or,
2. Intermittent contact on power relay board"
This doesn't help since it is too technical. What should I do next?

Oven and stove top not getting hot.


The most probable cause is that the heating elements are getting 110V instead of 220V. Check the voltage to the heating elements.
