Question about Jenn-Air JED8230 Electric Cooktop

1 Answer

Need a wiring diagram for the burner switch for model c-206b-c

I had a repair person who said they were authorized, replace a defective switch for the right front burner. When he did it the fan now comes on when the burner is one - never did this before! Also when two burners are on and the fan is switched on the fusebreaker trips - something is not wired properly - the repairman is no where to be found! Please help if you can? Need the wiring diagram - Jennair is of no help as they say the unit is too old and they have no info on file. The unit is about 16 years old.

I have a Jenn-air JGD8130 gas cook top. One side with 2 burners works fine. The other side gets gas but no spark. When I try and ignite the upper burner, it sparks the upper burner on the other side....


Hi,
With the information you gave me I researched this particle number you supplied. (8 possible different model) Th side that is not working has a wiring issue with the controls (knob have switches under the surface) there is a possible short within the harness to that side of the burners. I assume you have used this cartridge on the other side to rule out the cartridge. If this information is true, you will need either a good handy person or a service tech to assist you in this repair. There really is no simple fix without locating the power loss within the unit. (Could be a loss wire, to a burnt harness or even bad switches) Either way someone needs to look inside to locate issue.
If you can, unplug the unit access the burner valves and send me pictures, I would be glad to assist you if I could see issues within the pictures.

I have a Model CG206B. One front burner will not fire unless I fire the back one and then turn the front one on.


Hello,

The problem is going to be that the switch that turns on the spark for that front burner is defective and that switch needs to be replaced. To replace the switch on that cooktop which splis over the gas valve for that burner is remove all knobs and remove the face plate over all the burner valves, the switch slides off of the burner valve and the wires to it just slip onto the new switch,the part number for that switch is Y704512 it could be purchased at your local appliance partstore or online at;
apdepot.com
partselect.com

before attempting any repair on the cooktop be sure to disconnect power and turn off gas supply

Hello there
I will answer this in 2 sections for testing the burners and the thermostate
Surface Burner Testing:

In order to test the surface burner on your electric range, the following steps should be taken:

  1. Before repairs or testing can begin you must disconnect the electricity at the fuse panel, at the circuit breaker panel, or by pulling the plug. Make sure the power is off before proceeding. A jolt from 220 volts can be fatal, use caution!


  2. Remove the surface burner from the stovetop. On most electric ranges this can be done by pulling the burner up and out of its plug-in receptacle. Other models have the burner directly wired to the cooktop. To remove this type of burner, undo the screw that secures the burner to the cooktop, remove the clips that secure the insulators to the burner terminals, and carefully unscrew the wires from the terminals. Take care not to bend these terminals.


  3. Visually inspect the burner - often there will be small holes or bubbles on the surface of a defective element.


  4. Now that you have removed the burner, you can test it using your VOM. Using the ohmmeter function, set the range scale to R x 1 and touch the test leads to the two burner terminals. The VOM should show continuity. Typical burner readings should be somewhere between 19 and 115 ohms, depending on the range manufacturer. If there is no continuity, the burner is defective. To test for a grounded (or shorted) burner, place one test lead on the outside surface of the burner and the other test lead on each burner terminal in turn. If there is continuity at either terminal, the burner is defective.


  5. If the burner is defective, replace with a new one by reversing the removal procedure (step 2 above). If replacing a wired-in burner, make sure that you install the wires on the correct terminals, according to the wiring diagram

Oven Thermostat Testing:

An oven thermostat is a switch that opens and closes in response to the temperature it senses. It is typically found in the control panel, where a liquid-filled temperature-sensing bulb senses and maintains the internal oven temperature by cycling heat on and off.

  1. Before repairs or testing can begin you must disconnect the electricity at the fuse panel, at the circuit breaker panel, or by pulling the plug. Make sure the power is off before proceeding. A jolt from 220 volts can be fatal, use caution!


  2. Access the oven thermostat, which is located in different places depending on the make and model:
    1. On freestanding ranges, access the thermostat by removing the screws that hold the back panel in place at both ends.
    2. On models with front-loading controls, remove the panel and tilt it for access. Be careful not to let the wires disconnect from their components.
    3. Some built-in models have a removable backsplash. Lift the backsplash, rest it on the cook top and remove the screws from the backsplash, which holds the rear panel.
    4. On wall ovens or eye-level ranges, access the control panel by opening the door and removing the screws that secure it. The screws may be under the exhaust hood or below the control panel. If the control panel is hinged, simply tilt it towards you.
    5. On some models both the rear and front control panels must be removed. The screws may be found on the trim and occasionally the trim must be removed.


  3. When testing the thermostat switch contacts for continuity, refer to the wiring diagram and remove only those wires being tested - and only one pair at a time. Test switch contact terminals as per your wiring diagram. If the switch lacks continuity at any of the contact terminal points then the entire thermostat switch needs to be replaced.

    Adjusting the thermostat:

  4. Test the oven temperature by placing the tester in the oven's center and leaving it for 30 minutes at 350 degrees. Record the minimum and maximum temperatures of three cycles, then add those figures together, divide the result by six and you have the oven's average temperature.


  5. If the average temperature is more than 25 degrees off, try calibrating the thermostat by following your appliance manual instructions for thermostat calibration.

The electric igniter sometimes doesn’t stop clicking when the burner is off.


Hi and welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. The igniters are controlled by a switch mounted on the face of the burner control vbalve. The switch operates by rotating a ceramic cam against a movable copper strip of wire to contact a fixed contact. What happens is that sometimes the movable copper wire strip gets bent and stays in contact with the fixed contact. These switches are not repairable and must be replaced when they fail.

I used this model as a reference fopr your part as you provided an incomplete model number in your post. JGP326BEV1BB
The switch is common to all models and can be found as item 323 here:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=214745&diagram_id=20726625#d20726625

Close up view:
http://www.appliancepartspros.com/part_details.aspx?part_id=3191247

There is one switch per burner control. Replacing this switch will correct the problem.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

We have a Thermador SGC365R which was installed in 2000. The center two burners (extraLow burners) have never worked, but we had no authorized repair people in our area so they never got fixed. An...


Hello- The extra low simmer burners are indeed troublesome. Sometimes you do have to drill-off the burners, sometimes all of them. This is can be very time consuming depending on if you have the right tools. The issue is you have to get the top off the unit in order to access the spark module and switches that come with the Potentiometer kit (the parts they will need to replace). As well, they will have to replace the Venturi Tubes that were drilled off and the orifice holders as well because the venturi screws into this. I would get a parts cost and labor estimate and consider also the cost of installing a new cooktop. I have done many of these, it's the same on their ranges, and it can take a couple of hours. I will say that I have never needed another persons help to do the repair. Hope this helps, best regards.

I just went thru this problem. There are TWO possible switch replacement parts. one is 12002422 and was my correct replacement number.
12002125 was the WRONG part..would not work no matter how you wired it. the failed switch being replaced was part number 7403p406-60. 7403p851-60 will NOT work.
my serial # was 12284711qz
call Jen air customer support and give your serial # and switch part # to get the correct part and diagram... Jenn air changed parts and wiring in the middle of a run.

When you turn the burner on, it makes a popping noise and will not stop.


You're gas burner has an electronic ignition that you're hearing. Sometimes they can get gunked up and become sticky. If you have been using the stovetop regularly and this problem suddenly appeared, we can assume that the power grounding and polarity are correct. If this is all true, then an igniter or igniters are either wet or dirty. Unplug the electricity and thoroughly clean the burner pieces and specifically the igniters (little separate cylinder next to each burner) with a sponge or other non-abrasive dishrag and hot soapy water. Make sure all the burners and igniters are completley dry, plug unit back into electric outlet. If problem persists,call an authorized repair person as you may need 1 or more igniters replaced.
Good luck

My ignitor on my ge cooktop keeps clicking slowly in off mode


As it relates to 5 burner gas cooktop Model Number JGP 963SEJ1SS
First - Ignite the flame then reduce the flame to between low and medium.  If the igniter continues to click, you most likely have a contact switch issue related to the problem burner.  
Unplug the cook top and turn off the gas.  After the gas is turned off, disconnect the gas line.  
Remove the cook top.  

Unscrew and Remove ALL of the burner bases by lifting them up.  The ceramic igniters may be difficult to remove but they will come loose if worked out slowly.  
Pull of the wire connected to the igniter. 
Remove to cook top top plate from the base, exposing the internal gas valves and wiring.
All of the burners are wired in parallel.   Lift off and unsnap the casing of the problem igniter switch.  The repair may require something as simple as, 1- cleaning the contact strips, or 2- slightly bending the non stationary contact strip to keep it from coming in contact with the stationary contact when in the off position, or 3- replacing the switch. 
Unless you comfortable and understand how electric systems and switches work, this is a job for a qualified repair person.

Red light on cook top remains on always.


Don't really need a wiring diagram, although there may be one inside switch area. (make sure to put it back again if it is there) Will need the full model number to get you the part number you need. (model number usually on a sticker near where the electrical wire enters the cook top)
Turn off power to cook top. Open cover to switches. Pull two "pilot" (usually smaller spade terminals) off the switch for the right front burner, and insulate each with a bit of electrical tape. Turn power back on to see if light now off. If yes, replace that switch. If no, replace those wires and repeat procedure with the next switch until you find the bad switch. Send a comment if you need additional help.
