Electric stovetop disconnection

I am trying to disconnect a GE stovetop that includes an exhaust fan unit. However, the electrical connection of the fan assembly is the one component that will not allow complete removal of stovetop, and it does not appear able to be disconnected. What do I do?

    Hi,

    Thanks for getting back to me! I believe the model number for this GE stovetop is:

    JP385W1WWOU.

    Perhaps a little more clarity of the situation/problem: The stovetop is located in a kitchen island. I am trying to completely remove it in preparation of installation of a new countertop. The electrical supply to the stovetop runs into the exhaust fan unit attached to it from below, but cannot be detached. Therefore, I have been trying to find a way of separating the stovetop from the exhaust fan unit, but without any luck. Hope this clarifies and that you can help.

    Thanks.

    First off, here is a link to download the owners manual for your set up.. http://genet.geappliances.com/DocSearch/...



    If you are removing this setup so that you can install a countertop in place of it, then why not just cut thru the power feed (making sure it is electrically powered off) with a sawzall fit with a metal cutting blade.. then pull the entire assembly out and dead end that power feed from the breaker panel.. Seems like the simplest solution if all you want to do is remove it... If my understanding is wrong..please advise...

How do I plug back in the GE stove top burners after unplugging them?


The two leads from the burner fit into a socket in the stove top. It's a bit tricky to get it in just right. If the three metal "legs" on the burner fit snugly into the three slots on the stovetop you did it right.

GE gas stovetop burner doesn't light


there are sparker modules on each burner behind the button, it may be that yours is failed, if you turn on other knob and you see spark at problem burner and still isn't lighting you have to make sure the black or grey tops are paced on perfectly, just give them a little nudge and you have to make sure area is perfectly clean for spark to take effect, spark will go for cleanest area on metal. so ensure area is clean and check burner top

How do I replace the switch for a jennair electric cooktop? model jed8430adb. Thanks!


You first need to remove the unit from its installation. Start by disconnecting the exhaust fan from the ductwork. Then push the cooktop up.

To get at the switch you need to remove the top by taking off only the top row of screws all around the unit and also at the top of the down draft cavity (the down draft cavity is where the grease guard mesh is)

How do you get the black top off. I have to put in a new front burner. Thanks.


I had the same problem. Mine was caused by liquid seeping into the infinite switch (the switch that gets rotated by the knob to set burner temperature). This caused one of the live wires to short to ground within the switch. Bad Design IMHO. Replacing the switch fixed the problem (you can get replacement parts at Searspartsdirect.com - search using the cooktop model number).

Turn off the circuit breaker to the cooktop. Verify by making sure the burners/fan do not come on. Disconnect the exhaust fan (underneath the cooktop) from the ductwork by removing the tape that joins it. While you are underneath the cooktop, open the junction box. Label the four wires that are joined so that you will be able to connect them later. Then disconnect the four wires. Remove the metal sheating that connects to the junction box (there is a nut on the inside of the junction box that you loosen. Pull out all the supply wires (from the mains) from the junction box. Then push the cooktop up and out and lay it flat on a table with the flat side down.
Take off only the top row of screws all around the unit. Rotate the unit so that you can get to the down draft cavity (the down draft cavity is where the grease guard mesh is). Remove the two center screws. Then pull the black top off.

Blown accessory fuse? jenn air cooktop jed8430adb


the unit doesnt have any internal fuses. you have a house fuse blown or circuit breaker that tripped. the fan switch can be found online or from your local parts house and make sure you get the clips to hold it to the mounting tabs.
next time you get ready to work on it, just make sure and turn off the power first as you will touch the metal terminals to the frame again.

Stovetop 3 wires to wall 4 wires


I'm assuming this is a 220/240v unit. The wall has two blacks, each with reference to white is 120v. Since you need 240 volts, you need to use both blacks. The third wire you'll need is ground. ALWAYS make sure you use a ground wire!!

Realistically, the white is connected to the Ground terminal in your circuit breaker box. Best practice says cap off the white, and use the GROUND.
