Default How to change baking element (wire access)
Brand: Jenn-Air   Age: 1 - 5 years

Jenn-air dual fuel downdraft slide-in range. I removed the two screws, pulled the element (lower element) forward and the left wire came out so I could disconnect it, but the right one didn't.

How do I access the wires? Do I need to pull the range out from the kitchen cabinets; I sure hope not.

Any help is appreciated--apple pie is waiting...

Turn power off to the unit.
Take a flashlight and look to see if the wire is visible.
Make a hook out of a coat hanger or wire and try to fish the wire out of the back. If you are lucky you may even be able to get it if you cannot see it.
If you cannot snag it then you will have to pull the unit.

Once you get it out check that the connector on the end is OK as it should not have come off without a fair amount on resistance.
A loose or pitted connector will cause a heat build up at the connector and will eventually fail.

Thank you Denman. It looks like I'll have to pull the range which won't be much fun. When it was installed they bored holes in the hardwood floor for the range legs to lower it to the correct height (3/4" granite rather than 1-1/2"). I'll need to lift the range straight up, then slide it out.

Thanks again.
