Thios induction hob (Electrolux) has 4 wires - Y/G, brown. blue and black.
The Y/G is obviously the Earth conductor, and I would assume normality says that
Brown is the live conductor and Blue the neutral conductor.
The quandry is whether or not to disconnect the black wire completely, as this appears to have no function in a domestic wiring circuit.

PLEASE don't 'fiddle about' with the cooker if you don't know about electrics. There are VERY high powerand DANGEROUS electric cables in there ! This is Nothing like a low power Stereo or TV BE CAREFUL !!!!
I am not familiar with this top but it seems from the diagrams that it just drops in to a base unit that contains the fan unit.somehow. I don't see any screws in the surface of the top so TURN OFF THE POWER COMPLETELY take out by lifting the edges ; the whole thing and work on it from underneath to access the electrics..
These diagrams below will show you all you need to do the job. READ THEM THOROUGHLY BEFORE you start.
PLEASE BE CAREFUL with Electrical wiring. !!! I cant stress enough
Sometimes if you call the manufacturer of an appliance and have your model number ready, they will email you an diagram or mail it to you. I would not tell them what you are planning on doing, simply because of them not recommending doing this they may not give you what you need. Just tell them you need a diagram thats all. I've done this in the past and it was free, just depends on the company you are dealing with. Hope this helps, good luck.
Hi Greg. Welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. I have been looking into this for several hours now. Even service manual(s). The only thing I can find is the yellow wire goes from the infinite switch to the right side elements. I don't see a blow on your model so the wiring diagram should be on the bottom of the pan cover. The bad news is I can not tell if it is actually on the bottom or inside the bottom. From everything I can see it appears that the yellow wire would be attached to L1 vs where you currently have it connected i.e neutral. I can not come up with the wiring diagram that is part of your cooktop but all of the other Electric Maytag and Jenn-Aire models show the same thing. Yellow wire from the infinite switch and L1. Take a look at your wiring diagram if you can find it and see if you come up with the same conclusion.
This became one of those solve the mystery questions for me and I literally have been looking at it for about 3 hours now. trying to get something I can safely pass to you that will not damage your unit.
With the yellow wire on neutral currently it would be operating on 110V and have low heat. Placing the yellow wire on L1 (Left) should get 208V to the right side burners. Again.. take a look at the schematic / wiring diagram that is attached to your unit.
This is the best I can do from here. The users manuals I have found for your cooktop are in several languages. ENGLISH is not one of them :(
Don't really need a wiring diagram, although there may be one inside switch area. (make sure to put it back again if it is there) Will need the full model number to get you the part number you need. (model number usually on a sticker near where the electrical wire enters the cook top)
Turn off power to cook top. Open cover to switches. Pull two "pilot" (usually smaller spade terminals) off the switch for the right front burner, and insulate each with a bit of electrical tape. Turn power back on to see if light now off. If yes, replace that switch. If no, replace those wires and repeat procedure with the next switch until you find the bad switch. Send a comment if you need additional help.
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.
REDS ARE THE 2 HOT 11O VOLTS EACH AND BLACK IS THE COMMON FROM THE CIRCUIT BOX .THE RED ON THE STOVE SHOULD BE 1 HOT AND THE GRAY MAY BE THE COMMON BUT YOU ARE MISSING A HOT LOOK FOR YOUR WIRING DIAGRAM ON THE STOVE AND IT WILL SHOW YOU THE COLOR CODES FOR WIRING IF YOU CANT FIND IT SEND ME THE MODEL NUMBER AND I WILL SEE IF I CAN GET IT FOR YA.......BILL
