20 Most Recent Jenn-Air JXT8136ADS Kitchen Hood Questions & Answers


the lamps are controlled by a triac that is probably mounted on the control board ... its not unusual for light bulbs to draw extremely high currents as they burn out ... thats because the melting tungston forms a plasma that arcs at very high current levels until a fuse or lead wire burns off inside the lamp ..thats why you see such a bright flash as they burn out .. ..as i recall lamps of 60 watts or greater have to have a built in fuse in the base ... lamps of lower wattage are not forced by law to have that .. so when they burn out they can easily damage external electronics .. so your problem is a shorted triac .. thats a transistor like device that is often used for lamp brightness control .. you can replace the entire control board $$$ or just the defective triac (like $2) .. the bad triac will read shorted between main termanals 1 and 2 on an ohm meter ...(power off of course) .. a normal one will read open ... its likely soldered in place and may have a heat sink attached ... thats an easy job for an electronic person ..

If you dont have a LOCK message there, and can change the clock-time there, it sounds like you have a bad ERC the control. Your control has a child lock out, but it would say lock and that is not there.

With the complete model number, check the next link for the manual, go to troubleshooting page and run the ERC test. If it fails any part of this test replace the control: OCManualsLiteratureSearchResultView?catalogId=10562

Hope this helps.

check to make sure you have power back to the junction on the hood,sometimes just resetting the breaker wont do the trick,it may be a wire at the hook-up open now,there may be a fuse protecting the unit itself for the fan control,but the lights are usually wired direct so re-check the incoming power first
