Question about Jenn-Air 30 in. CVE3401 Electric Cooktop

Open Question

Jenn Air 30 in CVE3401 Electric Switch entire unit doesn't work.

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.

SOURCE: Water boiled over into control knobs for the cook top elements.

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.

Short on Jenn Air electric stovetop


Dear Genie,
Well, you are right in your surmising!
That water has shorted out perhaps as many as several items.
One way to solve this problem would be to wait until the water dries up, could take days or a couple of weeks.
Another way would be to take a hair blow dryer and dry the parts by blowing them for a while, perhaps 10 to 20 minutes, but to see if that fixed it, you would need to turn it on, which could cause a short!
No good.
Best idea is to take it all apart and see if there is visible damage, and to take and electric meter and test it all.
God bless your efforts.

Rear burner will not get hot


Call the manufacturer or retailer you bought it from. Sounds like the the burner is damaged or the connection from the burner to the electrical source is damaged. If either is damaged, the company will replace it.

Burners on JP326 electric not heating


Sounds like breaker tripped so no 220 to unit. Reset breaker. The burner switch you first turned on probably blew out and needs replacing, so don't turn it on again. If all else works ok, then that is it. Unless you are handy you may want to call the repair man.
