The white wire coming out of the cook top is the ground wire for the fan. The black and white wires from the house each carry 120 volts (the cook top needs 240 volts), the copper is the house ground.

The correct connections are as follows.

Black to black
House white to cook top red
House copper to cook top white and green.

The cook top has two ground wires, one for the elements and one for the fan.

You should double check the wiring at the circuit box, but if it's like mine then black and white are both hot, and copper is ground.
So, connect
Jenn-Air Wall
Black Black
Red White
White Copper
Green Copper
I've just finished wiring up mine like this and it works perfectly.

COOK TOP WIRING


 You have Red and Black HOT wires and a Green Neutral - That is 220 volts. From the wall - Black is Normally HOT and White is Neutral. That is 110 volts. If that is a typical household outlet, is will only supply a demand at about 15 amps while running at 110 volts. Your Cooktop will most likely demand somewhere around 50 amps at 220 volts. - Short Answer - You will need to have a 220 volt supply line ran to the cooktop from the breaker. Easy to do but dangerous if you are unfamiliar with high voltage.
