Question about Gaggenau 47 in. CK 594 Electric Cooktop
I have a Gaggenau CK 594 cooktop with the center burner burnt out on the large round dual element. The replacement burner has five electric connection lugs and the cooktop has six wires from the switch that need to be connected. The local repair people that I have contacted said that the Gaggenau people sent them a wiring schematic for the new style burner which they cannot understand. My repair people are saying that Gaggenau will not help them any more that what they already have.
A heating element is a ' load ' only and has nothing to do with 'line' a heating element consumes energy and a line supplies energy. The nomenclature for both is unambiguos. Line and load would indicate a switch or overcurrent device. We are referring to a heating element that is beyond the switch or overcurrent device. Applying a meter to the element with a good understanding of the fundamentals or having a clear diagram that indicates the function of the wires is the only safe way to proceed. Connecting indicator lights in series would never get through UL and your appliance would not have reached market. Obtain the information necessary as to the function of the conductors and connect them according to the manufacturers instructions to avoid violating the UL listing. See NEC 110.3(B) (NFPA 70): Listed and labeled equipment shall be installed and used in accordance with any instructions included. The equipment we are discussing is dangerous if not connected properly please be careful.

You have 2 line, 2 load, and if there is an indicator light, 1 for that and 1 ground. The other guy may be right about the 2 grounds, if not, the indicator light may have a connection for hooking it to another light in series. The tech cannot understand the schematic? get someone who can.
