Hello:
My appliances have been a nightmare this year. Now my Jenn-air oven is not heating up at all. When I turn 'bake' to, say, 400 degrees, it simply goes to 100 degrees and stops. Looking in the oven, I don't see anything 'glowing'. I don't smell any gas or anything either. Any ideas as to what the cause could be? Thanks!

Hi Chadd,

If you don't see an orange glow when the oven is ON, then get a multimeter and check for 120 volts at the oven igniter connector underneath, remove the bottom storage drawer and get a droplight to see better, it should be located towards the back after you remove the storage drawer.

Here's the oven BAKE igniter for your model(Video Included):
74007498 Oven Ignitor


Let us know what you find.
