Question about Jenn-Air JED8430 Electric Cooktop

1 Answer

The jenair made a popping sound, wasn't even turned on. Then found it didn't work at all. Flipped the breaker, and it would immediately flip back, the Jenair would also make the same popping sound.... Do we need an Jenair appliance guy or an electrician? Is this something that we can fix?

I had the same problem. Mine was caused by liquid seeping into the infinite switch (the switch that gets rotated by the knob to set burner temperature). This caused one of the live wires to short to ground within the switch. Bad Design IMHO. Replacing the switch fixed the problem (you can get replacement parts at Searspartsdirect.com - search using the cooktop model number).
You first need to remove the unit from its installation. Start by disconnecting the exhaust fan from the ductwork. Then push the cooktop up.
To get at the switch you need to remove the top by taking off only the top row of screws all around the unit and also in the down draft cavity (the down draft cavity is where the grease guard mesh is)

The left side of my cooktop shorted out. Initially popping sound and electrical burning smell. Now shorted out with loud popping sounds and large flash of red under the cooktop. Did not start a fire but...


What you had was a slow short - practically the same thing as in a welder: big and loud flame, localized and the amperage isn't that great. As such it's very possible that the breaker wasn't tripped, especially if you had a big one, over 30Amps.
No, you shouldn't even try to repair it, that unit is dead as a dodo.

Stove keeps tripping fuse


when turning on stove, the current inrush is too great for the breaker. you need to look at the data plate on stove first to see if the current (amp) usage is greater than your breaker. If not, then you may have a faulty element or control

Poping sound, sparks shooting out and 220 circuit breaker out


Did you move the breaker fully off before turning it back on? make sure the offending burner is off.

It sounds as though the element shorted out.

Stove is tripping circuit breaker Two burners stopped working properly (only get slightly warm). Switched the coils to the other side and the other side is still working. Looked underneath and saw that...


if it is an old stove i would say have it serviced/checked over. if it is a newer stove i am guessing the circuit breaker predates it and is rated for the old stove therefore you will need to have a larger circuit breaker installed (by a licenced electrician)

Burners on JP326 electric not heating


Sounds like breaker tripped so no 220 to unit. Reset breaker. The burner switch you first turned on probably blew out and needs replacing, so don't turn it on again. If all else works ok, then that is it. Unless you are handy you may want to call the repair man.
