    Pros: Range has a double-oven (smaller top which is great for cookies).
    Cons: Problems with microwave, range and refrigerator.  See above.

    Summary: To sum it up: I bought all three stainless steel appliances in May 2005 because of the double-oven, reputation and appearance.  Microwave: Completely dead (R.I.P.); Refrigerator: Two warranty calls, paid for trip only. Range: Oven is ... read more

  • Gas Range is the Pits

    Nov 16, 2006 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Nice looking. Many good features.
    Cons: Poor quality parts. Range top scratches and always looks dull. Service stinks.

    Summary: I've had this Jenn-Air range for 3 years. The top surface of the range is a nightmare to keep clean. It ALWAYS looks streaked, no matter what I clean it with. I have tried everything but nothing gives the range top a clean, smooth, shiny look. Also, ... read more

    Pros: To it's credit, this range cooks well.
    Cons: The top surface finish is fragile and entirely unsuited to a kitchen range.

    Summary: There are several other mid-priced gas ranges with essentially the same features, so why did we buy this one instead of another? The answer is simple - we liked the way it looks. Isn't that why most people select one item from among several with ... read more

    Pros: The controller and the heat worked well for 3 years
    Cons: Controller is the main issue. 4 times replaced the controller

    Summary: It worked fine for a few years but then started breaking down. Basic problem is that this oven has its controller placed right on top of the oven. At high heat the oven heat fries the controller and we have replaced 4 controllers. Yesterday night was the ... read more

    Pros: Not a bad oven when it worked
    Cons: Range is a Lemon and Jenn-Air won't own up to it.

    Summary: 7 year old range with the common F-1 and F-3 error codes. With the advise of Fixya I replaced the Oven Control Unit, price 225.00. It worked fine for 6 months then bam, same problem. I'm cutting my losses and ordered another range. I stayed clear of ... read more

    Pros: Looks nice at first.
    Cons: Non-durable cook-top, expensive, many issues within first few years.

    Summary: We have had nothing but problems with this stove. I would not recommend this stove to anyone. We are now on our third control panel, and the problems have never been resolved. Now you can not even touch the control pad to shut off the oven---it is ... read more

    Pros: Who cares if it only lasts a year and some?
    Cons: Costs a ton and then breaks down on you.

    Summary: My experience is similar to everyone else's. Bought this range just over 2 years ago in the fall of 2005. In November 2007 the range went schizo - started immediately going into "standard proofing" mode without any prompting and beeping constantly. ... read more
