Dear Samurai,

When I set the oven to bake and set the temperature, the display on the oven reads 140F and does not rise. Neither element gets hot. Broil also doesn't work. I do not get an error code. I checked the oven sensor and got 1100 ohms at room temp, which I believe is correct. I checked the bottom element and got 21 ohms, which I understand also is correct. I checked the voltage on the bottom element when bake was on and got 0 volts. I checked the voltage coming in and have 120 volts across the three posts on the back of the oven. When the bake cycle is set, after a few seconds one of the relays (?) in the back of the oven will click twice, then once. When the unit is shut off, it will immediately click again for a final time.

I had the timer circuit board repaired about 14 months ago. Is it possibly bad again? What else is there to check?

Thank you very much!!!

Dr Lewinstein

I think on this one, the hi limit is located above the oven cavity, right behind the door latch assembly, item 4 in the diagram below:

Thank you for your speedy reply, O Fermented Grand Master.

Tested the high limit switch by unhooking the connecting wires on the back, based on the Jenn-Air schematic. Resistance is 0, so I'm believing its ok. Anything else to check? Is it possible that the one of the relays is bad? I'm running out of things to check before believing its got to be the timer card again (for the second time in 15 months).

Thanks again,

Grasshopper Lewinstein

Also, I think you told me a place in Canada I could send my circuit board and have it repaired, but I can't find that information. Do you know the place I am talking about?

Thanks,

Grasshopper Lewinstein

if using a digital meter your reading should have been 0.1 for a closed high limit.

you said you have 120V accross the 3 posts of the termonal block.
Should have 120V from outside (each side) to middle terminal and 240V
from outside to out side.

Fixyourboard.com is a good source...if you need the board repaired.

While in the Bake or Broil mode, measure the voltage on the Relay Board from
the Black wire to the Orange wire (DLB) on the big black Relay.
Should be 0v AC
