Question:

The 'o' on the model number may be because this is an appliance bought with the house. Model number for your purposes is probably jt912bf5bb. Food has been burning lately. I set the oven temp to 400. After is beeps it continues to heat for another 30 minutes or so up to 100 -150 degrees more. (using a store bought metal thermometer it beeps at 300 and then will continue to heat up to 450). Realize the store bought not that accurate but is does show oven not heating correctly. One person told me it could be the thermistor but don't find that in your parts list. Or the panel. Any suggestions

Maryjane for model number JGBS04PPW1AD
Answer:

Hi Maryjane, Thank you for your question. I would suggest testing your temperature sensor and your bake element with a muilt meter to see if either of those parts are not working correctly. If both of those parts are fine, it may be your electronic control board that is the issue. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

Ran a self-clean cycle and after it cooled, the oven door keeps locking. The unit makes a clicking noise when the oven is turned on and the unit will heat for 30-60 sec and then turn off. I have been able to unlock it by turning a self-clean cycle back on and then turning it right back off. Burners are operational.

William for model number JS750SF1SS
Answer:

Hi William, Thank you for the question. Sounds like it could be the oven sensor. The sensor detects the temperature within the oven cavity. If it is defective it will lock the door thinking the oven is hot or in self clean. Hope this helps!

Question:

My oven is not heating properly. I checked power,elements and thermostat and all check out good . When i turn oven on bake the temperature doesn't increase pass 100 degrees on the display pad but the element is hot to the touch, just not red hot. When i turn the broiler on it doesn't get red hot either like it's supposed to. Although my thermostat is checking okay when i test it , all the symptoms from your web page indicate it's the thermostat . Could it still be this or is there something else i'm overlooking? Please help ! Holidays,holidays,holidays!!! thank you very much.

Edgar for model number JT965SK4SS
Answer:

Hi Edgar, Thank you for your question. If your temperature sensor is testing good and both of your elements are also testing good as well, then it is most likely your electronic oven control board that is the issue. I hope that helps. Good luck with your repair.

Oven was not coming up to temperature

I had to remove the oven from the wall because the sensor plug connction is behind the unit. Two screws hold the sensor inside the oven and then I disconnected the lead and pulled the sensor out from the front. I installed the new sensor, tightened the two screws holding it in and connected the lead. Then reinstalled the oven into the wall. Overall, a very easy repair once you get the oven out.

Seal worn on corner allowing heat to escape, sensor not reading the correct temperature

Spring clips installed on seal just pull off door. New clips get inserted in mounting holes and are pushed in to seat in door. Seal ends slide into door holes.

Replaced old sensor with new one by removing nut screw and carefully pulling sensor cable out of oven back until plastic terminal connection is exposed. Sensor connection has a locking tab that must be pushed in to release sensor connector. Do not allow oven wire to pull back into back of oven until new sensor is connected. Reinstall nut screw and tight to hold new sensor in place. Verify proper oven operation.

Actual temperature did not match set temp

Removed the oven door for easy acces to oven. Unscrewed (philips screwdriver) the screw holding temp sensor in place. Gently pulled the wiring until quick connector was located. Pushed down on locking level on quick connect while holding other end of wiring (so wiring would not fall back behind oven). Connected the new sensor and screwed back in place. Reinstalled oven door. Tested temperature settings by turning on oven and comparing with a separate oven thermometer.

F2 error code

After reviewing the potential causes for the error code, I decided I'd try to change out the temp sensor. Using the ohmeter, I saw the difference immediately between the old and new sensor. The sensor is accessed from the back of the stove, and must be slide out to gain access to the rear panel. Since the stove I have is a built in, removing the stove and the access panel was the hardest part of this repair. Resetting the glass control panel was also a bit tricky to calibrate the touch sensitive buttons. Good luck.
