    SU130 Jenn-Air Range - Wiggling oven thermostat buzz and light flicker

    Jenn Air SU130 When you wiggle or tap the thermostat dial, it sometimes buzzes. Also if the oven light is on, wiggling the thermostat makes the light flicker on and off. Is the thermostat bad or is it a wiring issue? Why does the light flicker?
