Question about Jenn-Air JED8430 Electric Cooktop

1 Answer

Jenn-Air Electric stovetop / oven range SCE4340B - Fuse blown ? ? ?

The front panel lights for the burners all work when I turn the knoobs to HIGH, but no action on the burners themselves. It is a smooth top, 4 burner unit. It has been working fine up to this afternoon. I did have some contractor work done in the house today ( new Peerless and Beckett burner/boiler ). They had to cycle the electrical service panel breakers on/off to identify circuits in the house. I'm not sure if something changed or is it a coincidence that it happened when the household electrical service / breaker panel was being cycled by the burner installers ? I first assumed a fuse would be a suspect but why would ther be front panel lights at all? If it is a fuse, what does it look like and where does one find this thing? Can it be tested with a continuity tester? voltmeter? Please help !!

    Catriver, Thanks for your quick reply. I did check and found that the contractors used a second breaker and have 120v across black and white as well as red and whit on oven terminal block. Is it time for a new oven ? recommendations?

    PS: I just realized what you wrote after I sent mine. I did not read 220v ascross red and black.

    Hey Catriver, Thanks a million for your expertise, however, I found something that I wouldn't expect you'd imagine from my previous comments: Turns out that the contractor angle has been dismissed as purely coincidental. The breaker itself had water damage from a leak inside the panel and after replacing it works fine now. Thanks very much for even the comfort of knowing there is proficient help on line. Much appreciated!
    Andy

Andy, sounds like you lost a leg of power. Check the breaker box first. Maybe the contractors tapped an existing breaker instead of adding one for the burner/broiler. You would have to check the terminal block on the range. Should read 120V from each end to center and 220V across the two outer terminals. If you don't have this, something got messed up with the contractors. Catriver..post back

I need a left front burner for a CP 220B Jenn Air electric downdraft cooktop: Serial no 069760DM. I also need a new blower motor, I think. Possible???


This is the first result I found; it may not have the best price:

The site also lists blower motors, but be sure to verify that the motor is defective before ordering; they are very expensive.

Blown accessory fuse? jenn air cooktop jed8430adb


the unit doesnt have any internal fuses. you have a house fuse blown or circuit breaker that tripped. the fan switch can be found online or from your local parts house and make sure you get the clips to hold it to the mounting tabs.
next time you get ready to work on it, just make sure and turn off the power first as you will touch the metal terminals to the frame again.
