Oven Too Cold - Needs to Be Calibrated - Gas and Dual Fuel Range

How to Calibrate or Adjust your Jenn-Air Range or Oven

The oven provides accurate temperatures; however, it may cook faster or slower than your previous oven.  The oven temperature can be calibrated to fit your needs. If you have determined your oven needs to be calibrated, below are the most common calibration methods.  Each method is going to be specific to your range or oven, so each method may need to be tried to determine which is correct for your specific model.

Is the gas pressure regulator shut-off valve in the "ON" position?

Gas ranges have a shut-off valve located on the pressure regulator.

  • The shut-off valve may have been turned to the "OFF" position during handling, transportation, or installation.
  • When the shut-off valve is in the "ON" position, gas can flow to both the cooktop and the oven. When the shut-off valve is on the "OFF" position, gas will flow to the cooktop burners but will not provide a gas supply to the oven.
  • This is different from the main gas supply line coming from the home gas supply.
