This is the correct way to wire the right front burner on Jenn-Air JEC8430ADS cooktop. Let's do the red wires first. The red wire that comes from #2 on the switch goes to the common connection for the element that should be labeled 2a. The other red wire goes to either of the "b", hot surface indicator switch contacts and the black to the other. Use 1b or 2b for these connections whichever reaches easiest. The yellow wire goes to the inside loop of the burner and the tan to the outside element.

My right front burner has stopped working.

no solution - just wanted you to know that I have had this model since 2004 and had to replace this burner twice under warranty and twice after that. It broke again 2 years ago so I just cook without it now. Will be replacing the cooktop and am resolved not to buy Jenn-Air/Maytag/Whirlpool products again - convinced it is a element design problem.

Right front burner fails to heat (at all) Jenn air

I suspect a faulty element or electrical connection to the element.

When the larger burner on the right is on high is melts the plastic control nobs. How do I fix it? Thanks Jim

These burners are not supposed to be operated uncovered. If indeed the burner is covered and it is still causing the controls to burn than the resistance for that burner is failing and the burner should be replaced. Thank you, Dana

2 right burners on my Jenn-Air JEC9536 cooktop stopped working.

I have a JEC9536ADB electric Jenn-Air Cooktop. We replaced the class top and now the knobs are all spliting and won't work. 2 of the main burners will only heat in the "high" position? What do I need to replace?

JEC9530, dual element burner(right front) does not work the light does come on, the burner does not and the knob has play in it.

This coulb be either the switch or the burner. Either can be tested with an ohmmeter if you can read the wiring diagram. Hope this helps!

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.

Can't control temp of one element, is either high of off, nothing inbetween

- The infinite switch for the controller likely needs to be replaced, this part can be ordered from your nearest Jenn-air parts dealer
