Question about Jenn-Air JED8430 Electric Cooktop
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)
