HOT SURFACE LIGHTS

I have just installed a Kitchenaid 30' electric cooktop ... using the wiring instructions for a 3 wire-cable from the home power supply to a 4 wire cable from the cooktop.
Everything seems to work fine , other than the 'Hot Surface Indicator Lights' remain on all of the time.

Is there a way to correct this ?

Helping a friend install a new unit... he has 3 wires where we took out the old unit (the old unit had 4 wires) .. the (source) 3 wire is black, white & bare.... the old and new unit have black, red,...


Hello,

I suspect on teh wiring from the house the black&white will be the hot wires and the bare will be ground/neutral

use a volt meter before connecting tonew cooktop and check for;
black/bare to have 120volts
white/bare to have 120volts

if that is what you find...connect new cooktop as such;

black to black
red to (house) white

(cooktop) white and green to bare

My house wires from the electic stove top has 3 wires and my new bosch electric top has 4 on red, white, green, yellow?


hook the red and yellow off the new stove to the two hot phases-then connect the white on the new unit to the neutral power connection and finally the green wire can hook to the same neutral wire also as long as the power comes directly from the main electrical panel in the home, but not a sub-panel

Hello: I am trying to replace a cooktop (installing a used cooktop - GE model# J P651 002 AD). My problem is making sure I understand the wiring connections. The cooktop has a black, a red, and a green...


The green goes to the bare ONLY.

Likely the black was used as a neutral and the reds were 240 volts.

You need to investigate at your panel. If you see the black going to the neutral bar, abandon it by capping with wire nut. If you see both the reds going to adjacent terminals on a double breaker, connect one red to the red and the other red to the black of the cooktop,

Just installed an electric cooktop and the Hot Surface indicator light has been on since installation. How do we fix this?


Sounds like a thermal switch which controls the hot surface light is stuck closed.

If this is a new unit, I'd return it. If not, I would check the switche(s) for the hot surface light -- when the unit is cold, unplug one wire going to the thermal switch and check it for electrical continuity. If you get current from a multi-meter through the switch, replace it -- it's not opening when it cools down.

I need tio hook up a 4 wire cooktop(Bl R, W, Gr/copper to a 3 wire boat(Bl-L1, W-L2 and Gr) Can anyone help?


hi my name is mark, you need to check local electrical code before wiring cooktop. if it is allowed the white and ground/copper can be tied together with green from house. but if not allowed you will have to run a seperate white wire or new 8ga 3 wire/ with ground from breaker box. check the code first. and shut off power before you wire cooktop. thanks for your question.

Wiring for Neff Hob-not supplied/no wiring instructions


The details of how to wire the T1213 hob are printed on the base of the hob next to the terminal compartment. For a single cable installation, Neutral is connected to terminals 4 & 5 which should already be linked with a copper link. Terminals 1,2 & 3 should be linked together using the links supplied (hidden in the side of the terminal compartment) and Live is connected to any one of 1,2 or 3. The Earth goes to the terminal beside the cable clamp.

Electical problem?


You really shouldn't have tried this. If you mixed up the neutral and hot wire YOU COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED!!!! You also could have burned out the fan motor. The fan operates on 120 volts the rest on 220. On most cooktops the frame is grounded to the neutral. If you connected this wrong the entire outside of the cooktop could be live. You might not be shocked if you have on rubber shoes but if you touched the stove barefooted you could be killed! The house wire should have 2 hot wires usuallly black or red. It really doesn't matter which is which. There should be a neutral (usually white or bare) There can also be a seperate ground wire (usually green or bare) If only 3 wires from house connect the white and green together. The minimum wire size should be #10 fused at 30 amps. Test the voltage between the 2 hot wires. It should be 220. Between either hot wire and neutral or ground should be 110 volts .. IF YOU DON"T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING CALL SOMEONE ELSE. This is very dangerous if hooked up wrong.
