Question about Hotpoint RB757 Electric Kitchen Range

1 Answer

Have jenn air (not sure of model #) in house built in early 70's.

Drop in stove top cartridges are numbered 87946 or 87947 with statement they are only to be used with Jennair range, 2800W, 240V. The wiring, with cloth insulation, is breaking down. I am confident of my ability and would like to rewire the two drop-in cartridges. What gauge wire should I use and is it okay to use plastic insulated wire rather than the cloth insulation (can the cloth insulated wire even be found anymore)? Thanks for the help.

Use at least #12 take a sample with you to the wire supplier (not a hardware store) you must purchase the heat protected plastic special wire (UL hi-heat) and, use porcelain wirenuts to make any wire-to-wire connections

I purchased a house w/ a Jenn-air elect. drop-in range. The Model # is 87946 or 87847. I believe the range was originally purchased in 1975. I am in need of an instruction manual .


Neither of these are a typical Jenn-Air model number. http://shared.whirlpoolcorp.com/product_literature/search.jsp?siteCd=JA_EN_US suggests that the model number is on the back wall under the burner on the right side of a drop-in cooktop. For a range the model number is often on the frame inside the oven door, below the vent or on the back of the top of the range.

87946 or 87847 are the part numbers for the cartridges (the elements or the surrounding housing).

Look at the model number locations at the "Help me find my model number" link and try to locate a model number on your range. Then enter that model into the search box. The manual is probably available with the correct part number. Most Jenn-air electric cooktops start with JEC in their model number.

I hope this helps you locate the manual.

Stove top burners


It is not the cartridge. It is the ignition switch (sometimes called a cooktop switch) I found mine on ebay. In particular it is a faulty rear switch. Save your money on the cartridge.
