Hot plates are very slow to heat

We have a countertop range (Jenn Air) with 4 hot plates. The plates are solid (i.e.not a coil). They heat very slowly.

Did this problem always exist, or did it gradually occur. If this is a new problem, then I would suggest that there is a bad connection someplace in the circuit. I would troubleshoot this using a voltmeter and start from the circuit breaker, and look for voltage drops across connection points (including the switches to turn on the hot plates)

If this was always a problem, check to be sure that your voltage supply matches that of the unit requirements

It sounds like it is getting to hot and going out on thermal. The probable culprit is the bearings are failing.

After fan is on for awhile the motoe feels hot to the touch..Why??


That is because small motors like this are very inefficient.

Almost everything in nature that has inefficiency throws off energy as heat.

The motor is probably throwing off 100 watts of waste heat total, which compares to the heat of a 100 Watt light bulb, so getting hot is not surprising.

Jenn Air cooktop has 4 wires Black, white, red, and green and my house supplies power with 3 leads white, black , & green. How are the wires hooked up to power the unit?


Old plug: green is ground, white and blace are both hot power. New cooktop: green is ground, WHITE is COMMON, black and RED are hot power. You are going to need an electrician to run a new circuit and plug for your new cooktop.

Will burner get too hot


Hello Pinewood7. The issue here is concern from what you have heard. Don't worry! All you are doing is boiling water. The system will allow constant heat for what you are doing. Use this as a test. Put your largest pot on the top full of water and set on high. Attach your thermometer to the side and see what happens. I know several people who use these tops for canning with excellent results. My sister in law has had yours for years and not an issue with jams. Hope this helps with your concerns.

Jenn air electric range wiring diagram


In a normal house, black and red are the hot wires and are wired to a circuit breaker or fuse at the panel box. White goes to the ground bar. Sometimes the white(neutral) is seperated from the ground. Sometimes they can be connected together. At the fuse box they both go to the silver ground bar. If you are attaching a cord and plug purchase one to match the outlet you have. Usually at the terminal block the hot wires are on the outside. Neutral in the middle. At the terminal block there is a metal strap or wire going from the center terminal to the frame of the stove. If the cord you have is just 3 wires leave it. If the cord you have uses 4 wires remove the strap and connect it seperately to the green or ground wire on the cord.
