Question about Cooktops

1 Answer

One of the heater elements would not turn off

This is regarding Jenn-Air CVE3400 model radiant cook top with 4 heater elements and a downdraft. The controls are all on the right hand side.

One of the heater elements would not turn off. This is the most used one of all 4 heating surfaces on the bottom right hand side. I tried taking the plastic cap (it is not worn off) and turning the metal pin control with the pliers, but the element still would not turn off. HELP!

    Where do I purchase this switch and is there a diagram that I can follow? Is it fairly easy to do it on my own or do I need to call in for service? Thanks

Jenn-Air Cooktop replacement needed


You can get a new cooktop surface from Maytag/Jennair for $229. It is a pain however to replace it. Where is the crack in your cooktop and does that crack pass directly through a heating element? If not, then you may be able to repair it. I broke the corner off mine, and then dropped the piece (now 5 pieces). I was able to bond them back together and you really can't tell it was ever broken. But, it takes some work.

CAN YOU USE CAST IRON SKILLETS ON RADIANT GLASS COOK TOPS?


you CAN use the skillet, but not with great results id assume, it holds too much heat, and problaby a bit too rough underneath and would probably scratch the glass top, in a family business for over 20 yrs. now and thats my recomendation, my brother also in the same feild swears his wife uses it with no issues!!!

There are 3 or 4 screws under the front lip; then the unit hinges upward. Turn off the power first! Once opened you can safaly remove the burners and replace toe top. hope this helps!

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!
