Question about Jenn-Air JED8430 Electric Cooktop

2 Answers

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 stripe, White is with the coiled silver wire, and the green is with the black on black. We are concerned about the green.

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.

Installing Jenn-Air cooktop, model jed8430


Hi, W/D here.

The plenum is the box the blower assembly attaches to. The blower pulls the cooking vapors down the plenum (well) and discharges through the duct.
Best regards, W/D

Just installed a new Jenn-Air Model JED8430. Burners work well but fan will not turn on. Two black wires and a ground coming out of my wall....presumedley no neutral. Any suggestions


I suspect that the two black wires were attached to a wall switch or a wall times, along with the ground.

Check to see if you have a hot wire there. then temporarily wire the two black wires together and see if the fan comes on, i believe it will.

Fairly difficult but doable for the mechanically inclined. They are all a little different - look underneath to uninstall the entire unit (turn off power first!). It is probably held in by a few screws. The glass is likely held by screws underneath as well. Hope this helps!

Jenn air jed 8430 electric cooktop control switch for rear burner


The cook top is attached to the wood frame by brackets, just remove the screws and the electric connection, make sure the power is off from the main box, it's a 220 volt wiring and then just lift the top off. to remove the glass, look around the edges and you should see some small screws, just remove them and the glass should lift off.
