Question about Jenn-Air JED8430 Electric Cooktop
I have a new Jenn-Air JED8430 downdraft cooktop.
I am confused how to connect wiring.
Cooktop come with 4 copper wires: white, red, black, green.
Manual says neutral of this unit is grounded to the framethrough the green grounding wire. Connect the white neutral to the service neutral.
I have (2) -40amp circuit breakers - I assume this is (2)- 120v combined together to make 240V, not certain.
Wire from breakers in cabinet has only 3 wires, a black, a black with red strip, and a silver colored ground - I believe this is Aluminum wire, definatly not copper.
how does this get connected, Is it black/red stripe to cooktop red; black to cooktop black; I am really confused on ground; Is it ground to green and also white together?
