Hi. I'm Smitty. I am a professional appliance repair consultant here to help you diagnose, and repair, your appliance.

I tried to answer your question before you went off line but the site has been having problems lately and was unable to.

The date of manufacture is right there in the model number you provided. (10-04-01)

September 4, 2001.

The unit is only 11 years old. A JenAire range should last at least 20 years if not more.

Thanks. Do we have any clue of when it might have been installed within, say, a 3-month window?
That, there is no way of knowing unless you know who put it in. The manufacturer does not keep any kind of records like that.
