Question about Ovens
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.

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?
