Topics I've Started

JennAir JDS98660AAP slow to heat up

02 December 2008 - 03:43 AM

Two months ago I succumbed to the notion that I should let manufacturer's qualified techs fix my range in time for thanksgiving. Well that did not work. So now I am ready to deal with it my self.

The initial problem was the dereaded F1 code on the ERC. After two no shows with appointments with one repair company, I called the repair arm of a national chain. On their first attempt the tech installed an ERC which I later learned was missing the L1 PIN on the board and a two wire connector to the D.L.B. relay. He declared it a "bad part" and ordered a second one. The second tech declared it the wrong part and reordered. On the third attempt, the third tech showed me the difference betwen the parts that had been shipped and the original. While that company arranged for a fourth shipment of "the" part. I contacted Jenn Air, obtained the correct part and replaced it myself. That done, the oven took an hour to reach 350 degrees on bake. With one day to thanksgiving I decided to replace the oven temp sensor. That did not do it. Now that I've learned a couple of lessons, I humbly seek the wisdom of the master. 

By the way the units serial number is 21892985GC. The "incorrect ERC" shipped was part number 7400826. (JennAir said that is the clock for a series 10, and I needed a clock for a "series 17"). The ERC now installed is part number 7400827. 

I suspect an open circuit somewhere. I've checked all connectionn from the pigtaill on, everything "looks good" but clearly that's not enough.
