Default Jenn-Air - Maytag W181 wide temp range
Model Number: W181   Brand: Jenn-Air   Age: More than 10 years

The oven works, per se. But, the temp swings between the elements turning off and on are about 56degF on Bake Convection using a household digital oven thermometer. Is this kind of range normal?

This oven has a sophisticated (for its day) electronic control panel and I wonder if the range can be controlled/adjusted by that electronic board.

Hi.

Does the cooking takes way too long or it's normal?

Simon.

My daughter graduated a baking /pastry program and she has been having problems with temperature inconsistencies. I guess a tri-tip is very forgiving of a wide temp range but cookies and stuff, are not.

Can the control board tighten up that range? I know that has calibrations for the thermostat so I thought that maybe it could do that, too.

I do not believe that the range can be changed.

Hmmm. Simon, is there a way for me to get a schematic of the control board? I have one of the oven itself, already. Thanks, Lar

Hi.

The detailed schematic of the control board is never available.

Oh, didn't know. Must be a built-in mechanical function of the thermostat. Thanks for your helpfulness,

Lar

Simon,

Two questions regarding normal brands of residential wall ovens (not incl Viking, Wolf, etc):

1. Are there any brands of normal residential wall ovens that have the capacity to adjust that OR actually state that info as part of their specifications??

2. Is a +/- 30degF cooking cycle variation normal/typical?

Thanks again,

Lar

Hi.

1. As far as I've heard the differential is a build in feature (some old thermostat operated ovens had this adjustment possible).

2.The 30*F is a max temperature adjustment.

Simon.
