Question and Answers

Q:

Kitchen appliance

A:

The oven elements will cycle the temperature above and below the set temperature by about 20 to 30 degrees. An accurate measurement of the actual temperature is achieved by allowing the oven to fully preheat and then allowing the element to cycle on and off at least 5 times. You can then take an average temperature reading over a 10 minute period to determine the actual temperature. If necessary, you can adjust the temperature as up to 35 degrees as shown in the first image below.

If that actual temperature is over 35 degrees off, then you could have a problem with the oven temperature sensor probe or you could have a bad element. Here is a link for a brief repair video that shows how to test that oven temperature sensor probe: Oven Sensor Testing . You should be able to access that sensor probe as shown in the second image below. Shut off the house circuit breakers for the range to completely disconnect electrical power before accessing internal components. The sensor should measure around 1100 ohms at room temperature. The third image shows more information about that sensor probe.

If that sensor probe is okay, you can check the resistance of the bake and broil elements (with electrical power completely disconnected from the range ). The bake element should measure around 25 ohms of resistance. The broil element should measure around 20 ohms of resistance. If one of those elements is bad, it could be causing a problem.

A problem with the clock control board could be causing an overheating problem in the oven if all of the above components are okay.

If you need parts, you can order them from the Sears PartsDirect website.

If the oven is heating properly then I recommend that you ask the resident to give the oven time to preheat before inserting the pizza. They may be already doing that. Dark stains on the bottom of the baking pan could also cause the problem that you are describing. Placing the pizza too low (or too high) inside the oven cavity could also cause problems.

I hope that this information helps. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

NOTE: We do not have a copy of that owner's manual at this time. I have contacted the manufacturer to see if I can obtain that document. I will update this thread once I hear back from JennAir.

If you get to the point where you need to have a service technician examine the range and repair this failure, you can schedule service through this link: Sears Home Services .

I obtained the owner's manual from the manufacturer and I requested to have it added to our system. That may take a while. I provided the pages from that manual in the images below. There are 32 pages in this manual so the thread will likely extend to page 2. If you need more help, let us know.
