Hi, I'm sure by now you probably have this fixed. Anyway, It is important that you know some information, like what the voltage is of the black and white wires coming in. The electrical codes in most places call for the 3rd wire which would be a neutral. If the old wiring has a metal conduit it is possible that it is being used as a ground and it may have been assumed that if the ground and neutral wires in the distribution panel were connected to the same bus that it wouldn't matter. Not the safest way to go but it will still work if you have no other wires. The incoming would probably be each a 110vac leg which the black would connect to black and the red from the cooktop would connect to the white of the incoming and the white of the cooktop would be sealed off. If you need additional help please let us know. Good Luck!

Do i connect the red and black wires together


No you do not. You have a 220 system. What you do to hook it up is. In the box in the wall you should have 3 wires. 2 black and one white. Then on the cooktop you have the 3 wires 1 black, 1 red, and 1 white. You take the black from the cooktop to the black in the wall box. Take the red to the other black in the wall box. then take the whites and put them together. Now if you have a green or bare wire that is the ground. Just hook that to the wall box.

If you have any questions please ask.

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

Hi,
The wire coming in should have the same colors, just match up the wire colors and wire nut them together with large wire nuts ad them tape them. ground the green wire to the ground screw.
That's all there is to it!

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.

How to wire a jenn air cooktop JEC9530ADB


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.
