Jenn Air - Model SVE47600B Electric Cooktop

Approximately 3 months ago lighting on the digital control panel became very faint to the point of being almost unreadable.  Oven, cooktop and controls, however, continued to function.  Few days ago a continuous beeping started and an F7 code appeared on the read-out. My question:  Are there two separate problems with the keypad and the control unit?  Will installing new keypad fix both problems or will a new keypad and control unit be required?  Don't want to spend $300+ if I need just one or the other.

    Digital display on my sve47600b model is unreadable until keypads are pressed or slight bump to control panel.. Readability becomes progressably better after a few seconds. This just started a few days ago. Was wondering if this is going to lead to a catistrophic failure. Bought this house in 89'. Replaced original Jennair in 98'. I like the product, but if I can only get this amount of time out of a sove/oven thats seldom used, maybe its time to change brands.

Just had this problem today on our seven or eight year old Jenn-Air cooktop. When using the front right burner all ignitors would continue to fire until I turned off the burner. The three other burners worked correctly. After trying all the obvious soulutions w/o success I pulled off that burners control knob and the rubber seal which exposed the valve. Their was a bunch of crud in there. I put a small (one inch) paint brush in there and vigorusly loosened all the crud. I then inserted the nozzle of our central vac - which just happened to fit perfectly - and sucked all the stuff out. I repeated the proceedure a couple more times, reassembled the knob and started the burner. Worked just perfectly!!! YMMV. Good luck.

SOURCE: elecrical hook-up for cooktop

Based on your description...it appears the Viking unit may NOT comply with UL and the NEC....but implies that some local Codes may permit the suggested connection...and it may indeed be permitted - if the unit actually draws straight 240 and does not require a neutral for 120 volts (some cooktops do need the neutral for 120 volt control switches...such as your Jennair). Code now requires that new 120/240 units that require the neutral (your Viking unit states that it does not) be a 4 wire assmebly....and your unit MAY be an exception to this requirement.

Under those conditions...then it more then likely CAN be connected as you (and Viking) suggest - black to black, red to red,green to white...and insure that the junction box is indeed well grounded to the supply bare ground wire - so that the metal flex will serve as a supplemental ground to the cook-top.The only other consideration will then be - IS the exisiting wire size and breaker that used to supply the Jennair correct for the new unit..? And if so - then you should be all set with your suggested hook-up...but without electrical nameplate data for both units for comparison...I have no way to determine that....both companies make several different models with different power supply requirements.

If the electrical data is compatible between the two units...then you should be all set as suggested - without having to rewire the cooktop.

Hope this helps...please follow-up if you need more details or have new information for me concerning this cooktop.

Did you spill water near/on knobs? if so leave to dry out for 24 hours. If still clicking after 24 hours one of the switches has shorted out and needs to be replaced. You can find which one with a multi meter/condinuity test. Hope this helps...Good Luck

I have a Cooktop Jenn-Air Model JED8430. The cooktop glass is broken. Would it be possible to change only the glass? If so, where could I get an other one ?


Yes, you can change just the glass. It is called the maintop assembly and usually starts at $275 and goes up. You will need to get the remaining 3 digits for your particular model in order to get the right glass. A good place to start looking would be: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/JED8430?pathTaken=modelSearch&prst=0&shdMod=JED8430

My right front burner has stopped working.


no solution - just wanted you to know that I have had this model since 2004 and had to replace this burner twice under warranty and twice after that. It broke again 2 years ago so I just cook without it now. Will be replacing the cooktop and am resolved not to buy Jenn-Air/Maytag/Whirlpool products again - convinced it is a element design problem.

I have a Jenn-Air CCE3401 Electric Cooktop I want to remove. How do I disconnect the wires from the cooktop? In other words, how do you get inside the cooktop to disconnect the wires? Disconnecting...


Firstly turn the power off. Lift the cooktop out from the benchtop and lean it against the wall. There will be a small panel where the wiring terminates into the cooktop. Remove the panel and disconnect the wiring to the cooktop. Ensure that you insulate all wires properly. You can then turn the power back on if you need to.

How to start the self-cleaning cycle in jenn-air sce30600?


An electric cooktop uses a great deal more electrical energy than a gas cooktop. The electric portion of the gas cooktop runs the electronics (clock, timer, ignitor, oven light, etc.), and these are small electrical loads. An electric cooktop uses more electrical energy cooking a batch of, say, pasta sauce, than a gas cooktop would normally use in a month or two. There just isn't a good comparison as there is such a broad difference in the electrical usage of the two units.

Jenn air model JED8430bdb


Hi,

A similar concern on a different model (8230):
To my knowledge, the:
green - ground
white - neutral
black - 120 to ground
red - 120 to ground but between red & black, it should be 240. A Jenn-Air JED8230 requires a 3-wire, 120/240 Volt, 60 Hz Outlet.

Pls consult/confirm with your local electrical utility/codes the availability/applicability of this power/wiring system or reference National Electrical Code, NFPA No. 70

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
