Question about Jenn-Air JED8430 Electric Cooktop

Wire for stove top burners

Have a c202 Jenn-Air cooktop. Wiring from power supply input to the switches on the cooktop is tired where it connects to the switches, but is too short to cut back and reinstall clips. Wire appears to be same type and gauge as that which runs from the switches to the burners. I am replacing the switches, but would like to renew the wiring while I'm at it. Where can I obtain this wire?

    The on-line parts dealers I've found thru Google say that they do not have it. Ideas? Is there any reason I can't just buy high temperature wire someplace and replace the harness one wire at a time, wire for wire?

This is the correct way to wire the right front burner on Jenn-Air JEC8430ADS cooktop. Let's do the red wires first. The red wire that comes from #2 on the switch goes to the common connection for the element that should be labeled 2a. The other red wire goes to either of the "b", hot surface indicator switch contacts and the black to the other. Use 1b or 2b for these connections whichever reaches easiest. The yellow wire goes to the inside loop of the burner and the tan to the outside element.

The cook top is connected to 220 volts. In the house wiring there are two legs each 115 volts. Usually they connect with a red wire, black wire and the third a neutral. It is likely that at the connection to the unit or at the electrical box a connection has failed or the 220 volt circuit breaker has failed on one leg. A qualified electrician needs to do the repair!

I have a JEC9536ADB electric Jenn-Air Cooktop. We replaced the class top and now the knobs are all spliting and won't work. 2 of the main burners will only heat in the "high" position? What do I need to replace?

My electric stove top burner only works on high

This is for the glass top units. well i'm not sure if your problem is with your large or small single burner or the large expandable burner. If it's the large or small single burner replace the burner and if it the expandable also replace the burner. If you have a coil burner replace the infinite switch. Good luck hope this helps you.

Jenn air jed 8430 electric cooktop control switch for rear burner

The cook top is attached to the wood frame by brackets, just remove the screws and the electric connection, make sure the power is off from the main box, it's a 220 volt wiring and then just lift the top off. to remove the glass, look around the edges and you should see some small screws, just remove them and the glass should lift off.
