    I am replacing my old Jenn-Air Cooktop with a new jenn-Air Cooktop, Model# JED8430.  The wiring to the old cooktop is a 2 Pole 40Amp Braker with 2 black wires and 1 Alum. Grd., however the new cooktop requires a 4 wire hookup.  Can I tap into a White wire from another outlet?

What you have is a 220v and a 110v circuit within the cook top. It needs a 4 wire feed to supply 2 hots, 1ground, and 1 neutral. The 3 wire outlet only has 2hots and a ground no neutral, which will probably not allow your control circuit to operate. You nee to run a neutral wire to obtain a 110v circuit. DO NOT try to run neutral off the ground or you will energize your cook top cabinet and it will shock you. Your solution is to run a neutarl wire from the closest circuit that you can find.

Replace igniter part # 1990 in oven of model #3627332192


Hi,

It's usually pretty simple. Start by turning power off to the oven - unplug it or disconnect power at the circuit breaker. Open oven door, remove all racks, then remove oven floor panel (it might be secured with two bolts or clips on the back side). Remove the flame spreader (one nut). Now you have the oven burner and igniter exposed. If the new plug differs from the old, cut off the plug and use ceramic wire nuts (should be supplied with igniter) to connect the wires. Don't shake the igniter - the coil is very fragile. Once the igniter is replaced make sure the wires are connected securely. Put everything back the way it was and test the oven.

Below are the two most popular oven igniters: flat bar igniter and round igniter.

Flat igniter - this is by far the most commonly used oven igniter. Includes all necessary pieces to replace longer ceramics. Size: 3-3/4" long. Fits Maytag, Whirlpool, KitchenAid, Magic Chef, Tappan, Jenn Air, GE (flat bar only), Sears Kenmore (flat bar only), even some Thermador cooktops and Viking ovens. - ff693fe.jpeg

I have a jenn-air wall oven it has a red wire a black wire a white wire and a copper wire but coming out of my wall is only a red/black and copper what dose the white wire go to please help thank you


IF you nhave a 3 wire feed fronm the house for your range, you connect the red and black for the power and then use the copper wire from the wall to connect to the white and copper wires from the range. All new construction must have a 4 wire feed to a range and dryer.

Wiring diagram


This model of cook top needs the 4 wire install because it has both 220v and 110v circuits. The forth wire is a neutral that operates the 110v circuit. You can move the ground of the 3 wire outlet to neutral, but ONLY! if the ground wire is insulated. What this will do is give you both your 220v and 110v circuits. The problem with that is your cook top will not be grounded. The best solution is to locate a neutral wire and tap into it, this will give you your 4 wire circuit. Your missing a neutral in a 3 wire outlet.

Jenn-Air Gas Range SEG196 NO CLOCK/DISPLAY


THE ONLY SOLUTION FOR THE BAD DISPLAY IS TO REPLACE THE CLOCK. I HAVE A JENN AIR OVEN TODAY AS A WORK ORDER TO REPLACE THE CLOCK FOR A FAILED DISPLAY.

FOR THE JGW8130DDB WITH NO POWER ANYWHERE, IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A SUPPLY PROBLEM. MAKE SURE THE WIRING IS HOOKED UP WITH THE RED AND WHITE WIRES RECEIVING 240 VOLTS AND THE WHITE WIRE ATTACHED TO NEUTRAL / GROUND.IF THE OVEN HAS A BARE COPPER WIRE AND THE HOUSEHOLD WIRING ONLY HAS THREE WIRES, COMBINE THE WHITE WIRE AND THE COPPER WIRE TOGETHER AND ATTACH TO THE HOUSEHOLD NEUTRAL / GROUND .
UNLESS YOU ARE SURE ABOUT THE HOOKUP IN THE BREAKER/FUSE BOX, DO NOT GO SIMPLY BY THE COLOR OF THE WIRES.

Jenn-Air part RI302 4 pt gas re-igniter with flame rectification tytronics #Z21-20 and 7431 PO38-60


We had the same problem on a Thermador cooktop with the same RI-302 ignitor. Turns out it was one of the switches that sits on top of the gas valves. These switches cause the ignotor to fire when the valve is turned. In our case, one of the switches had malfunctioned and was "always on" causing the ignitor to continuously fire.
