Connecting green ground wire in Jenn Air

I have 3 wires coming from house wiring, two black and one white. I connected one black from house to black from cooktop, one black from house to red from cooktop, and white to white. What do I do with the green wire from the cooktop?

There are four wires in the jenn air, black, white, green, and red. Do both the white and green wires go to the ground wire from my house wiring?


the wires coming out of the wall are they all coated or is one bare, what size (gage) are they if there isn't 4 wires coming out the wall and there becomes problem that needs repair and the tech sees it the warranty may be void read the installation instructions they should answer your questions.

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.

Jenn air model JED8430bdb


Hi,

A similar concern on a different model (8230):
To my knowledge, the:
green - ground
white - neutral
black - 120 to ground
red - 120 to ground but between red & black, it should be 240. A Jenn-Air JED8230 requires a 3-wire, 120/240 Volt, 60 Hz Outlet.

Pls consult/confirm with your local electrical utility/codes the availability/applicability of this power/wiring system or reference National Electrical Code, NFPA No. 70

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Wiring installation


You do need a 208/240 volt supply from your service panel. The green is ground, white is nuetral, and the red and black should measure 120 volts each to ground or 240/208 between each other. It is normal for most breaker panels to supply 208/240 between adjacent insulators. If you are only getting 1/2 of that then the circuit breaker may not be straddling the insulator bar but be 1/2 notch out and both breaker pins contacting the same 110 supply.
