Electric shock from cooktop, didn't trip breaker,

Electric shock from cooktop while cleaning. Had knobs off and was reaching into downdraft to clean out crumbs with damp cloth. Arc sound that didn't trip breaker, but cooktop smells like something is burned. Also, shirt I was wearing was touching the cooktop and has a burn mark on it. We have turned off breaker, but do we call cooktop repairman or electrician?

Where did you smell the smell was it from the fan switch. turn the power off and take the screw out of where the fan switch is and check the wires to the switch and the switch itself. sometimes the jennair cooktops have issues with that switch. let me know how it goes

Fan stopped working on Jennifer air downdraft electric cooktop. Elements still work fine. Circuit breaker did not trip. Took switch out of line by directly connecting fan leads. Still did not work when...


Generally there is a plug for the fan motor under the range, the panel where the drawer would be should lift off, you will then see the power to the fan motor. The fan motor is only 120Volts not 220V

always unplug electricity before attempting to repair on any electrical appliance

The circuit breaker for out kitchenaid glass


Water probably did get into the switch(es). The best bet for a fast fix is to pull the knobs off and use an air can (like for blowing dust out electronics) to blow down into the holes. This will dry out any water in there and should allow you to use it again. To be extra sure, blow out the switches and leave the knobs off over night. In the morning the knobs can be replaced and the cook top should be good to use. Hope this helps!

My ge ceramic cooktop hot indicator light won't go out


I know that some people have mentioned that it looks like it's on, even when it's off. Depending on how the light hits it, it can look like it's glowing a bit. This would be normal.

Tripping breaker


Replace the burner and receptacle and you should be short free. You may also need to replace the surface element switch too if it doesn't come on at all or stays on high regardless off knob setting.
