How Do Jenn-Air Ovens Compare With Other Brands in Reliability?

Jenn-Air electric ranges with ovens have the highest repair rate among major range manufacturers, as reported by appliance repair information site ApplianceAssistant. Owners also report significant problems with Jenn-Air wall ovens, giving the brand a rating of 1.2 stars on consumer complaint website ConsumerAffairs.

An estimated 16 percent of Jenn-Air electric ranges eventually require a repair service, four times the 4 percent repair rate reported for the most reliable brand. While some of these issues are due to the higher complexity of these appliances, consumers report problems with standalone Jenn-Air ovens that include excessive smoking, poor temperature control and oven doors that do not seal properly.
