The once or twice time of the year that I use the convection roast feature and seem to always forget to follow up with the noisy fan. Listened to it for almost 3 hrs but well worth the fine (and time saving!) results of a perfectly done bird today.
Have read other posts and complaints about Jenn Air products, have this range and above microwave. My only complaint is about a year after purchase the convection fan in the lower oven started making noise, like it was rubbing or bearings had gone bad. Hard to believe on the later since only used it a few times. Thought maybe a dab of oil may help, anyone experience the same problem and how you solved?

The motor is Manufacturer Number 131560100
and it was new. I'm not sure if this makes a difference but the dryer has a turn to start switch, not a push to start switch. In normal operation when I set the timer the dryer shouldn't start until I engage the start switch afterward but what it is doing now is starting as soon as I set the timer to any setting. Then the dryer will not stop until the timer switch is set back to the off position.
From what I can tell the start switch is not in the closed position when I set the timer and cause the dryer to start.

What is the part number of the replacement motor?
Was it a new or used motor?
Have you checked the push to start switch to see if maybe it's in the closed position when it's staring on it's own?

I have a Kenmore Gas Dryer, Model 417.92142101. About a week ago it would only turn on by holding down the on switch. After research and testing I found that the dryer motor centrifugal switch had gone bad and thus when trying to turn it on the motor was only getting enough electricity to operate when the on switch was held on. With this model we couldn't just replace the centrifugal switch so we replaced the entire motor.
After replacing the motor I ran the dryer (without gas connected) in my repair shop. I verified that the door switch operated properly, meaning that the dryer would turn off when the door was opened. The dryer only turned on as expected, meaning that I had to set the timer and then engage the on switch.
I then put the dryer back on top of the washer where it was located before. I connected the gas and plugged it in while the timer was set to the off position. Then I set the timer and the dryer turned on without engaging the on switch. Additionally when I opened the door the dryer would not turn off. I thus assumed that somehow the door switch had gone bad so I took the dryer down again, moved it back to my repair shop and proceeded to test the door switch. On this model the door switch has three wire connections. According to the wiring diagram one (the blue one) is common, the NO side (the grey one) goes to the drum light and the NC side (the black one) goes to the motor. I connected one of my ohm meter probes to common and the other to the NC (motor) side of the switch and verified there was continuity when the switch was engaged (meaning door closed). I then verified there was no continuity when the switch was not engaged (meaning door open). I then connected one of my ohm meter probes to common and the other to the NO (drum light) side of the switch and verified there was continuity when the switch was not engaged (meaning door open) and no continuity when the switch was engaged (meaning door closed). That's how it should work, i.e. the motor should turn and the drum light should be off when the door is closed and the opposite when the door is open.
After checking the door switch I checked the on switch and it had continuity as expected as well. I then plugged in the dryer in my repair shop (not connected to gas) and verified that it turned on as expected, meaning that I had to set the timer and then engage the on switch to get the dryer to turn on and that the dryer turned off when I opened the door. Everything worked and I checked it once more (just because I'm OCD) before I moved it back into the house.
Immediately after putting the dryer back on top of the washer, plugging it in and connecting the gas I tried to operate it. Again, as soon as I set the timer the dryer turned on without me engaging the on switch. Again, when I opened the door the dryer would not turn off. It would only turn off when I set the timer to the off position.
At this point my only two differences, that I'm aware of, are the connection to the gas and the fact that the dryer is on top of the washer. I got out my level and verified that while on top of the washer that the dryer is just as level as it was on the floor in my repair shop. I then disconnected the gas line and attempted to turn the dryer on again and found the same issue, i.e. it turned on immediately after setting the timer and would not turn off with the door open.
So I took the dryer down again, back to the repair shop, opened it up again, tested the door switch and on switch again and found that everything had continuity as it should have. I then verified that while in my repair shop that it turned on as expected and turned off when the door was opened.
I moved it back into the house, put it back on top of the washer and tested it again. It had the same problem, i.e. turning on when setting the timer and not turning off when opening the door.
At this point I decided I'd let it run for a while just to see if it would actually heat up and complete a cycle. The dryer did heat up but it shut itself off after about 15 minutes, which I'm assuming is due to overheating the motor.
So, any suggestions on what might be wrong here or how I can further troubleshoot? I've never seen anything like this before and I'm generally pretty handy with appliance repair. And before you say "just move it into the repair shop since it works there", please realize that I don't want to run a gas line into my repair shop just to dry my clothes.

Look at Section 3-6
Scotteh - thanks so much, that worked like a charm. I was able to the get old unit out easily and the new one in. Everything works flawlessly now! Really appreciate the response after such a long time. Happy thanksgiving!

The lower right segment denotes defrost sensor error of ff. Not sure on upper left segment

Those are errors.

Sorry for such a late reply. I would guess you have this taken care of by now, but for future reference here is the service manual for your model.https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BzIiBNwRIV4NMjE3Znk3SDMwSmc&authuser=0
It would be great if you could take a minute and share with us what it took to repair your washer.

Would guess you have this taken care of by now. I could not find either a tech sheet or service manual for your model.
What did you end up finding wrong with it? Any information (tech sheet, service manual) you could share with us would be greatly appreciated.

Sorry for such a late reply. I searched some time back and did not find anything. Was hoping another tech could help us out, but I guess not.
Did you ever find a service manual? Did you ever get it repaired?
