Question about GE Cooktops

1 Answer

On-site breaker panel routing

I have a new GE 2009 stovetop and oven - has 4 wire and plug [red, black, white, gnd]. My old on-site panel has three breakers, one fifteen and two twenty-fives. Coming in to the box are the red, black, white and bare gnd. wires.
Question one: Does the new system need the fifteen amp breaker [the old box serviced a 1983 GE built-in oven with analog control panel which probably needed the separate 115 volt line]?
Question two: I know the red and black go from the twenty-five amp breakers to the plug-in box - what is the routing for the white and gnd? and if the fifteen amp breaker is used, what wire goes from it to the plug-in box?
I understand this Profile model doesn't need a separate 115v line for the controls.

Helping a friend install a new unit... he has 3 wires where we took out the old unit (the old unit had 4 wires) .. the (source) 3 wire is black, white & bare.... the old and new unit have black, red,...


Hello,

I suspect on teh wiring from the house the black&white will be the hot wires and the bare will be ground/neutral

use a volt meter before connecting tonew cooktop and check for;
black/bare to have 120volts
white/bare to have 120volts

if that is what you find...connect new cooktop as such;

black to black
red to (house) white

(cooktop) white and green to bare

I just bought a jp328sfss and need to know how to wire it to the breaker panel the way it is wired now it only heats water to 120 degrees F the handyman that hooked it up said there was no way to wire it...


It sounds like you better be careful for starters. I also suggest your handyman sticks to painting. In older homes a 208/240 circuit onlt had three wires. New construction and remodeling requires a four wire system. Per code, a black wire is 120VAC, and a red wire is 120VAC. In a 240VAC circuit they would be called L-1 and L-2 respectively. In order to provide 240VAC they must be on seperate phases. The bare wire in your bundle is the ground wire and is at the same potential as neutral, or the white wire in current four wire systems. If you know how to use an electrical test meter, you should show 120VAC from black to bare copper, 120VAC from red to bare copper, and 240VAC from black to red. If this is not the case, I strongly suggest you have an electrician come in and take care of it in your breaker panel. *****Electricity is nothing to fool around with if you are not absolutely sure you know what you are doing. A loose connection, a wrong connection can result in fire, serious injury or death. It's worth a service call to a licensed electrician or qualified appliance service technician to give you peace of mind, and years of safe use of your new cooktop.

Help with wiring for a drop in stove top


This is not to code. The white is neutral and is of the same polarity as a bare wire. The red and the black are considered hot and would be 220.

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.

I have a four wire on a 20 Amp service. I need 110 outlet.


4 wire recepticals are used for 220 Volt appliances, there should be 2 hot (117V to ground) and one each Grounding and grounded (read neutral) conductors) Breaker or disconnect should be 2 pole for 220 Volt circuit. A 20 Amp 110/117 Volt circuit would have a single pole breaker or disconnect, one "hot" conductor(should be black or colored , not green or white), one neutral conductor (should be white or neutral with white stripe) and an equipment grounding conductor (should be green or bare copper). It sounds to me like your receptical was wired for 220 V using whatever colored wires were handy. Back up to breaker or fuse (disconnect), and shut off circuit. New 117 Volt outlet will be wired with Black to Brass colored screw (short slot on face), One White wire will be used for Neutral conductor (make sure you know which one it is at the breaker panel) and one of the other white wires may (but shouldent be) used for ground (use green marker to identify it at each end),The third white wire should be removed if you can, otherwise cap with wire nut at each end and coil up in back of boxes. At the breaker/ fuse panel, the Black wire is connected to the breaker (It will be your "hot" lead), The white being used for the Neutral is connected to the neutral buss bar with the other Neutrals, and the green goes to the grounding buss bar (should have other green or bare copper wires. Once all is properly connected and secured but without the disposal plugged in, turn on the power and check for leaking smoke (smoke here is a bad thing) The fuse or breaker should protect your wires and help keep that smoke inside the boxes. Check voltages at the new plug, 117 V accross Short and longer slot, 117 from short to ground (round) and 0 or close to it from long (Neutral) to ground. If voltages check, plug in the new appliance and test.
If in doubt about what you have, dont hesitate to contact an electrician, they get paid for their knowledge and experiance and their ability to keep that nasty smoke inside the boxes.
Good Luck.,

I have 4 wires from the cook top and a black, white, and bare from the breaker. No instructions. My guess is white to white, green to bare, and black and red to black. Don't want to guess.


if it's 240volts and you have from the cooktop a red/black/white and green red&black are the two hot wires 120+120=240volts/white is the neutral/and green is safety ground-------as for the breaker wiresblack and white are the hot wires and the bare wire is the neutral it really shouldn't be a bare wire because even if it comes directly from the main house panel it does carry current,and by the n.e.c. white can't be used to carry power,unless it's marked at all visible locations with any color but green/check those wires and see what voltages you have before wiring to unit

How to wire a jenn air cooktop JEC9530ADB


the new cooktops and ovens now have a 4th wire used for separating the ground and neutral. some new homes and remodeled homes have a 4th wire run from the circuit panel to the unit.
you dont have this but it is ok to just hook up the white and green/ground wires together. then red to red and black to black. it will work properly and thats all you have to do.

Stovetop 3 wires to wall 4 wires


I'm assuming this is a 220/240v unit. The wall has two blacks, each with reference to white is 120v. Since you need 240 volts, you need to use both blacks. The third wire you'll need is ground. ALWAYS make sure you use a ground wire!!

Realistically, the white is connected to the Ground terminal in your circuit breaker box. Best practice says cap off the white, and use the GROUND.
