Jenn Air drop-in electric range; model 58HN-4TVW; about 13-15 years old

There are two problems; not sure if they are connected.

First, when I set the baking temp, it will display 100 degrees as usual, then switch off. Over and over. It used to happen occasionally, and we would just set it again until it stayed. Once the temp climbs to 105, no problems - it won't do that much anymore, though!

We are thinking it's a problem with the circuit board, as the oven does seem to work fine if it gets past that initial turnoff problem. Is this a diy repair for a handy guy familiar with electrical issues? Is it a worth while repair?

Also, one burner no longer works; either doesn't heat at all or gets faintly warm. This happened well after the oven problem began. I am guessing it is a burned out element, unrelated to the oven problem?

thanks for any help,

kat

Two different problems katilac, three if you count your unit is probably a Magic Chef and not a Jennair. The unit has a relay board under the main top and the clock control. The relay board on this unit is a slave to the clock, the fact that the bake command drops out completely would indicate a clock failure. I can not get a picture of this thing as far as the control goes. Does the clock have a series of triangular buttons and one round for the temp? Also, when the bake command drops out, does the control make a beep sound like the cancel has been pressed? If it does, you may have a knob sticking causing the unit to cancel itself. As far as your top surface element, we would definitely need a meter and the ability to do a few checks. Do you have one and feel comfortable enough to make some checks? If you do, and want to, see if you can find the schematic on the unit and post it here. I do not think it will be on line because of the age. The switches should be easy enough to check even if we do not have the schematic. Sorry no one got to you sooner, must of slipped through the cracks.

oh, yes, it's Magic Chef, I'm so sorry! //blushes//

I must have been looking at my notes on new ranges and got JennAir stuck in my head.

It does not make a beep when it cancels; the temp indicator simply goes off, and you can hear that the fan or something goes off as well.

Yes, it is the triangular buttons and then the round one for the temp.

as far as the element, dh does have a meter and is very comfortable with checking that type of thing. I think we have the manual somewhere; I will look and see if it has the schematics in it.

 

thank you,

katilac

It sounds like you have a bad clock ($212.00) or a bad relay board ($92.00) you can buy them new at http://www.repairclinic.com/0080.asp . Or you can send your clock and relay board to stove clock repair to get them repaired for $120.00.
