How to wire my cooktop - what color goes where?

The fan runs on high, then turns off.

I don't know if I have it wired correctly. At first, the burners didn't heat much, then I wired black to black, white to white, green to ground, and red to white.

That helped with the burner heating up, but now a light on one of the dials "blew" when I was cooking.

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.

Maytag cook top Model # CSE 9000 ADB. A red, black, blue, yellow, white, and bare copper wire come out of the unit. How do I hook it up???


each colored wire is for a seperate burner, the white wire connects to the white neutral wire the bare wire connects to the ground the red and yellow wires connect to the red wire (L1) and the black and blue wires connect to the black wire (L2). i have the same model and i connected mine this way and it's working fine. mine is also connected in a box that has a seperate fuze for each burner so you can follow the red (L1) wires to the 2 fuzes and connect your red and yellow wires to these fuzes and the follow the black (L2) wire to it's 2 fuzes and connect your black and blue wires to these fuzes. i don't know if this box is necessary or ir you can just connect directly to the wiresin a regular box and rely on the breaker but it was already there from the old cooktop i replaced so i used it. hope this helps you

How to change burner switch


If you have diagnosed a bad burner switch or infinite switch the hardest part is getting to it. The voltage is pretty high and you want to make sure the power is completely off to the unit before trying to fix it. When you get the the failed switch make sure your write down wire color and where it goes ex. L1, L2, H1, H2 and colors going to it. You can also just do a change wire for wire if you wish. Here is a link to the model number you provided to get an idea of how to get to the switch.

Electical problem?


You really shouldn't have tried this. If you mixed up the neutral and hot wire YOU COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED!!!! You also could have burned out the fan motor. The fan operates on 120 volts the rest on 220. On most cooktops the frame is grounded to the neutral. If you connected this wrong the entire outside of the cooktop could be live. You might not be shocked if you have on rubber shoes but if you touched the stove barefooted you could be killed! The house wire should have 2 hot wires usuallly black or red. It really doesn't matter which is which. There should be a neutral (usually white or bare) There can also be a seperate ground wire (usually green or bare) If only 3 wires from house connect the white and green together. The minimum wire size should be #10 fused at 30 amps. Test the voltage between the 2 hot wires. It should be 220. Between either hot wire and neutral or ground should be 110 volts .. IF YOU DON"T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING CALL SOMEONE ELSE. This is very dangerous if hooked up wrong.

Burners not working but fan is


Are you sure that is the proper wire from the wall? What you are describing is a 110 volt circuit. THis cooktop should be connected with at least #10 wire and fused at 30 amps. You should have black red and at least white with possible bare ground wire. Assuming somebody used the wrong wire during original install job, you have it connected right. Please replace with heavier wire if it is not #10 Or at least make sure it is fused at no more than 20 amps if smaller wire. (You may sometimes blow circuit breaker if all burners are used on high at once) Use a volt meter and check voltage. If this is a 220 volt circuit you should have 220 volts between black and white and 110 volts from either one to bare ground wire.

Old jennair cooktop


The wiring diagram is pasted on the inside of the panel you remove to get to the wiring. If no wiring diagram The blower operates on 110 volts not 220 So the wire goes from one of the hot sides (Black or red) to the switch controlling the fan to the motor , from the motor to the neutral (white/Bare) wire terminal. Pilot light for fan is attached to the same wires as the motor. If you don't know what you are doing disconnect all wires from the burner switches to the fan motor. This will mean you have to switxh on the fan yourself whenever you need it.
