Jenn-Air Oven / Range Error Codes

Jenn-Air Oven / Range Error Code F8

Error Code F8 on your Jenn-Air Oven or Range signals a shorted meat probe alarm. This specific error occurs when either the probe jack or the harness connected to the probe jack is compromised. Alternatively, it may be triggered if the probe is sensing a temperature above 250°F.

Possible Causes:

  1. Probe Jack or Harness Issues:

    • Check the probe jack for any visible damage.
    • Inspect the harness connected to the probe jack for wear, tears, or loose connections.
  2. Probe Sensing Temperature Above 250°F:

    • If the error persists, it is advisable to assess the meat probe’s functionality.
    • Ensure that the probe is securely inserted into the meat probe jack.
    • Verify that the probe is not exposed to extreme temperatures, as temperatures exceeding 250°F can trigger this alarm.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Inspect Probe and Jack:

    • Carefully examine the meat probe and its corresponding jack for any physical damage.
    • If there are visible issues, such as bent pins or frayed wires, it may be necessary to replace the probe or repair the jack.
  2. Check Probe Harness:

    • Examine the harness connected to the probe jack. Look for signs of wear, tear, or loose connections.
    • Ensure the harness is securely connected, and all wires are intact.
  3. Probe Temperature Verification:

    • Confirm that the meat probe is properly inserted into the jack.
    • Use an alternative temperature-measuring device to cross-verify the temperature sensed by the probe. If it exceeds 250°F without reason, consider replacing the probe.

Note: If, after performing these troubleshooting steps, the error persists, it may be advisable to seek professional assistance. Certified technicians can conduct a thorough diagnosis, ensuring a precise resolution to the F8 error on your Jenn-Air Oven or Range.
