About - Jenn-Air JGR8890ADP

The Jenn-Air JGR8890ADP is part of the kitchen range test program at Consumer Reports. In our lab tests, gas range models like the JGR8890ADP are rated on multiple criteria, such as those listed below.


Cooktop high:
This reflects how quickly the most powerful burner could raise a 6-liter (6 1/3-quart) pot of water from room temperature to a near boil.

Cooktop low:
This reflects the gentlest burner's ability to melt and hold chocolate without scorching it. We also set the most powerful burner to its lowest flame to test its ability to hold a large pot of tomato sauce below a boil.

Baking:
This reflects the evenness of cookies and cakes in multi-rack baking tests.

Oven turns itself on - by itself -

I usually don't use the back burners on my stove but I recently cooked a few things on my stove that required using a back burner. Later on that evening the stove turned itself on and set itself to 350. I didn't think too much of it, dismissing it as me accidentally leaving it on. However, the next morning when I woke up I smelled oven smell. I walked into the kitchen and there was the oven, running at 350 as toasty as could be! This is really scary and an obvious design flaw! I can't believe there isn't a class action lawsuit regarding this.

So upset writing this as I see Jennaire had a huge problem with the control panel on this model and never had to recall or fix it. Stove 5 years old, control panel shot due to poor placement as mentioned by others.Oven started turning itself on, by itself, scary. $829 to replace control panel. This, after spending $229 last year to replace lower heating element. Stay far, far away from anything made by this company or anyone continuing to make this model.

Comment:
I purchased this stove because of the reputation of Jenn-Air. I liked the performance of the stove, but in less than two and a half years the electronic panel malfunctioned. The customer service of this company was as poor as I have ever experienced. It was four months (including Thanksgiving and Christmas) before the part was available. Just a week before it was available, I negotiated with them to remove the stove from my home and give me a buy out check. They were reluctant to do this, and really pushed to get me to purchase another Jenn-Air. It was an absolute nightmare with many phone calls to customer service. I have finally purchased another stove and will never purchase another product from this company.
