Question about Jenn-Air JED8230 Electric Cooktop
My 18 year old Jenn Air stove top has recently started turning off. Some times flipping the fuse makes it come back on, but not always.
There are no other appliances that use the same fuse, so it isn't caused by over load. The house was built in 1960
It is old enough that the connector, that the elements plug into, are probably dirty or bad (as in burnt up, corroded, etc.). A high resistance connection could cause the breaker to occasionally trip.
I would examine them by lifting/unplugging/removing the sections from the stove and look at plug with flashlight. They are easy enough to get at, clean or replace, if necessary. I have cleaned mine with sandpaper and tightened them up and had them work better for a while.
Make sure element ends are not eaten up or dirty, too.

If your breakers have become week they may trip with a lesser amp draw.sooooo if they trip right when you turn on a switch on the range, then it is a short in the range.if it trips after your using it abit its your breaker.hope it helps God bless ,tom
