If you are thinking of buying a new wall oven, you may want to steer
clear of Jenn-Air.
We just replaced our 11 year old Kitchen-Aid after the control unit went
dead after a cleaning cycle.
We bought an electric single Jenn-Air model JJW9530DDB. The first one
had corrosion on the door near the hinge. It went back.
The second one worked for 1 day, then tonight it shut itself off while
broiling. Pressing Broil or Bake gives error 1C2C - and it refuses to
work. I turned off the power for 15 seconds then turned it back on.
Broil would come on, but again it turned itself off after 2-3 minutes.
It will go back obviously.
Any comments on Jenn-Air (now Maytag) quality? We've had Maytag
washer/dryers for years and they are rock solid. The Jenn-Air is a very
attractive unit with thoughtful features like a bottom element that is
enclosed and a top element which has very low clearance, but quality
seems to be lacking.
Also, none of the repair sites list error codes like 1C2C, just ones
like F1, F2...
And perhaps I'm just getting old and grumpy (very likely) but 20 years
ago, appliances were cheaper, simpler and lasted MUCH MUCH longer. (And
they were cheaper and easier to fix too). We're tossing a dead
Kitchen-Aid oven because the circuit board to fix it is $600. Go into
any appliance store and you will see massive stainless steel covered
appliances, costing $$$$$ but I suspect the internals are just as crappy
as the bottom end stuff.
