How to wire a jenn air cooktop JEC9530ADB

I'm installing a JEC9530adb cooktop and I have four wires from the unit and only three wires that the electriction gave me to wire to. The wires he gave me were black, white and bare copper. Can you please help me determine what to do with the extra red wire coming from the cooktop.

Thanks,

Tim

The new cooktops and ovens now have a 4th wire used for separating the ground and neutral. some new homes and remodeled homes have a 4th wire run from the circuit panel to the unit.
you dont have this but it is ok to just hook up the white and green/ground wires together. then red to red and black to black. it will work properly and thats all you have to do.

    you will also need to go back to the electrician and ask if the wire is of heavy enough gauge to run your cook top. if he says its ok, then do this.

    top ----------------------- home
    black black
    red white
    green and white bare

    does that make sense? i hope so.
    but really you should have the right wire from the home so colors dont get messed up or hooked up wrong in the house panel.
    you need whats called a 3 wire with ground from the house panel. then colors will match.

Hi, depending on your local electrical code:and I see that the unit is 240 Volts A.C., then RED=Power/Black=POWER(L1 & L2)/WHITE="N"Neutral/and GREEN=SAFETY GROUND,on the new unit, then use from the wall power BLACK = L1 and White= L2. then on the unit RED=L1 and BLACK=L2(either way you hook these 2 up there isn't a polarity issue on these 2 wires) on the units hook-up/then use the BARE supply wire as neutral and tie BOTH WHITE and GREEN from the unit together to this BARE wire..

Take care

There are four wires in the jenn air, black, white, green, and red. Do both the white and green wires go to the ground wire from my house wiring?


the wires coming out of the wall are they all coated or is one bare, what size (gage) are they if there isn't 4 wires coming out the wall and there becomes problem that needs repair and the tech sees it the warranty may be void read the installation instructions they should answer your questions.

Jenn Air cooktop has 4 wires Black, white, red, and green and my house supplies power with 3 leads white, black , & green. How are the wires hooked up to power the unit?


Old plug: green is ground, white and blace are both hot power. New cooktop: green is ground, WHITE is COMMON, black and RED are hot power. You are going to need an electrician to run a new circuit and plug for your new cooktop.

We have a Jenn air jed8430. It was installed but never supplied power to it or tested. We want to make sure the wires are right before powering it up. Black is with Black. Red is with Black with Red...


I just looked, and there is not a wiring diagram available on the web for this unit.

I am concerned about the black with red stripe to red.

Check to see if there is a wiring diagram somewhere on the unit (there wasn't one in the installation instruction or manual for this unit.). I believe the red wire on the house side goes to the black/black wire on the cooktop side (so I believe you are correct on your concern.).

House side green should be to the coiled silver cooktop side silver wire.

But the wiring diagram will confirm these things.

I think the black/red stripe is for the blower.
