Question about Jenn-Air JED8230 Electric Cooktop
My old cooktop had 2 hot wires and a ground and I am replacing it with a cooktop with 2 hot wires a common and a ground. Do I need to run a common from my panel to the cooktop?
If you look in most panels the ground and the neutrals are tied to the same ground. they might be in a different location within the panel but they are common to each other. if you are concerned about having a seperate ground get yourself a ten foot, one inch diameter copper rod drive it into the ground about nine foot six inches. then mix up a strong salt water solution, about a couple of gallons and pour it around the rod. voilla, you have an independent ground. this might sound like a bunch of bull ----, but it is valid information. if you still have reservations call the building department in your town and they will verify it for you.
