Jennaire SEG 196 convection oven
« on: January 19, 2012, 06:04:58 AM »
Have a Jennaire oven (top NG burners and electric convection oven) which is over 20 years old.  It is a great unit with little issues the entire time.  However, tried to run a self clean cycle and it would not work.  You set the oven selector to clean (vent turns on), turn the temp dial to clean, and flip the latch (hear the buzz) but no indicator lights go on.  I think the lock indicator light and clean light used to illuminate.  Does anyone have a link to a service manual, or suggestions to look for?  I am pretty sure it's some switch but have not taken the unit apart yet.  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks in advance!

You have to set the clock for start time and stop time or hours of clean.

Will pull things apart and report back.  Hope it's not the control board. The microswitches can be matched up, Thanks for the feedback.

Finally got around to taking things apart.  Boy do things get crusty over the years!  The latch assembly was pretty crudded up in fact the lever that locks the door was frozen.  Got things cleaned up and still everything appears to work except the clean function.  Tested the micro switches and they all work and appear to be adjusted correctly.  I did find the wiring schematic online and have attached.  The overtemp switch shows continuity.  I think it's narrowed down to the thermostat, the large relay in the back of the oven, or the timer board.  As I stated before, I follow the steps to put oven into clean mode.  Everything seems to go well (cooling fan goes on, lever can be moved to the lock position, timer can be set when to start and stop), but the clean light does not come on, nor does the oven heat. Schematic is a bit hard to follow, but I did verify the selector switch contacts, but couldn't decifer the thermostat.  Also the only connection to the timer looks to be large wires going to E6 and E7. Any suggestions?

Did you happen to find the service manual for it yet?

Here it is...

Yes, found it here but drawings not real clear: http://www.datafilehost.com/download-b5c1dd88.html.  Also a stardard manual covering mostly the newer models. This morning still bugging about it so did force the open relay on the timer board closed and clean light came on and I think the heating elements got warm.  Relay connects E6 and E7 so know there is power through that circuit.
