Question about Jenn-Air 30 in. CVE3401 Electric Cooktop
I over boiled water which caused the circuit breaker to pop. It is about 10 years old and I don't know if the New Gas Jenn Air JGD3430 would work to be a replacement in the old unit cut out hole vs fixing the burned out switch. I'm sure I'll boil something else over and don't want to keep having all these electrical issues.

Just fixed this problem and repaired the corner of the Ceran cooktop.
Disclaimer: These cooktops run on 220V and will kill you if you don't know how to work with electricity. If you're unsure, get some help.
The boiling water slopped out of your pot, and went over to your controls (knobs) and went down the shaft and into a component call "Infinity Switch". The water caused the switch internally to weld one of the two internal sets of contact points into a permanent position. The fix is to replace the
"Infinity Switch" that the boiling water spilled into. The Infinity switch is the component that the control knob slides on to.
In my cooktop one of the infinity switches failed and appears to damage the adjacent switch. Mine actually caught on fire and damaged the wiring and the connector. Hopefully you are better off. Since they were in such close proximity I replaced them both. For $20 you might consider the same. I replaced both to be safe and they were $21.47 each.
My cooktop has 4 elements 2 small, 1 large and 1 combined (small and large) surface. A large element was definitely damaged and possibly a small element. I ordered both. I mention this in case a multi-element was damaged on your cooktop.
You will need to contact either Jenn-Air or someone. Since you can't see an exploded parts list online, you'll have to use the schematic. It is in a plastic sleeve and it stuck to the side of the ventilator housing underneath the cooktop.
When you wire the new part in, make sure you have the wiring correct or when you turn it back on you will burn up the new part.
I hope this helps.

The part you need to replace is the switch. The switch is housed under the top and connects to the dial you are turning.
The switch for the dual burner is 12002125, and 74011242 for the single burner.
The single burner switch runs about $20.00 and the dual runs about $50.00 for the parts
