Question about Jenn-Air JGC8430 Gas Cooktop

1 Answer

No wattage given with electrical requirements for gas cook top

I just purchased a jenn-aire gas cook top (model jgc8430cds) & could not find wattage specification to determine amperage (watts/voltage) so I determine what existing 120vac/20 amp circuit I can configure this product into. Can you provide me with that spec?

    I was after the wattage spec because I found a sticker on the botton of the unit that read;

    120vac / 60Hz, 10 amps or less..., I'll try to contact jenn-air.

    Thx

A gas range requires minimal electric current. "Any ole" circuit will do.

    Well, the 10 amps or less would qualify as a minimal current requirement. You can call Jenn-Air, but I don't think you need to.

    Watts = Volts x Amps



    120 volts x 10 amps = 1200 watts



    There is no way a gas range pulls 1200 watts unless it has backup electrical heating units.



    "10 amps or less" is a meaningless specification -- 0.0 amps is less than 10.0 amps, so is 0.1 amp (12 watts) less than 10.0 amp, etc. Further, U.S. residential 120-volt circuits are either 15 or 20 amps, which makes the spec even more baffling.



    I'd love to hear how Jenn-Air explains that spec.



    What did they tell you when you asked them about watts?

My Jenn Air Electric stove is making a clicking noise. When I put my hand on one of the cook top knobs I can actually feel a vibration when the click occurs. What is this?


Gas stove? LP? It is probably the electric spark ignitor. Many times when you clean the stove top water from the sponge gets below. The water droplets (align mysteriously) make the connection between the wires, and the stove thinks it's supposed to be igniting. When the water evaporates, the switch will work fine again & the clicking should only occur when igniting & then backed off.

This happened to me once before.

Power requirement


If you are running new wire to the cook top. You need to run 10x4 wire. The 12x4 wire is not large enough for the 220v. Also the 20 amp breaker is not large enough to run the cook top. You need to use a duel 30 amp breaker.

Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer.

All cook top burners spark when any is turned on


OK, the best action is to call for service, if the unit was just installed, and purchased. This unit should be covered at this time, by the manufactures warranty, or store 30 day warranty. This repair should be free. The culprit will be a faulty spark ignition switch, and module. Testing is required. Once this switch, or(module), is replaced, the unit will operate correctly.

Downdraft Slide-In Range


I have the radiant cooktop (i.e., glass top) version of this range. I've had this same problem since I first purchased this unit. I wondered why no one answered this question, as I check back to see from time to time. I finally contacted Jenn-Air's online support. My conversation was as follows (I'm not entirely sure that the tech support knew what she was talking about, but here you go anyway):

message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool Cidalia C: Hi, my name is Cidalia C. How may I help you?
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool You: Hello!
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool You: I have a question regarding my "Downdraft Radiant Cooktop"
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool Cidalia C: Thank you for contacting Jenn-Air today with your inquiry. What is your question please?
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool You: None of my burners can simmer-- no matter what the setting, they will boil water!
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool You: Is there an adjustment that can be made to attenuate the heat?
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool Cidalia C: What is the model number of your cook top please
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool You: JED8430ADB
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool Cidalia C: Thank you. In looking at your burner configuration, the smallest wattage on your unit is 1200. And, unfortunately, there is no way to get a small wattage for your burners. We apologize for the inconvenience.
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool You: Yes, but the dials are supposed to prevent the full 1200 watts from reaching the burner unless it's on maximum heat, correct?
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool Cidalia C: Yes, but the burners do not get low enough to be considered simmer burners.
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool Cidalia C: Did you have any other questions or concerns today?
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool You: I suppose not.
message.gif?p_db_name=whirlpool Cidalia C: Thank you for contacting Jenn-Air. Have a good day!
