Based on your description...it appears the Viking unit may NOT comply with UL and the NEC....but implies that some local Codes may permit the suggested connection...and it may indeed be permitted - if the unit actually draws straight 240 and does not require a neutral for 120 volts (some cooktops do need the neutral for 120 volt control switches...such as your Jennair). Code now requires that new 120/240 units that require the neutral (your Viking unit states that it does not) be a 4 wire assmebly....and your unit MAY be an exception to this requirement.

Under those conditions...then it more then likely CAN be connected as you (and Viking) suggest - black to black, red to red,green to white...and insure that the junction box is indeed well grounded to the supply bare ground wire - so that the metal flex will serve as a supplemental ground to the cook-top.The only other consideration will then be - IS the exisiting wire size and breaker that used to supply the Jennair correct for the new unit..? And if so - then you should be all set with your suggested hook-up...but without electrical nameplate data for both units for comparison...I have no way to determine that....both companies make several different models with different power supply requirements.

If the electrical data is compatible between the two units...then you should be all set as suggested - without having to rewire the cooktop.

Hope this helps...please follow-up if you need more details or have new information for me concerning this cooktop.

Do i connect the red and black wires together


No you do not. You have a 220 system. What you do to hook it up is. In the box in the wall you should have 3 wires. 2 black and one white. Then on the cooktop you have the 3 wires 1 black, 1 red, and 1 white. You take the black from the cooktop to the black in the wall box. Take the red to the other black in the wall box. then take the whites and put them together. Now if you have a green or bare wire that is the ground. Just hook that to the wall box.

If you have any questions please ask.

Hi, depending on your local electrical code:and I see that the unit is 240 Volts A.C., then RED=Power/Black=POWER(L1 & L2)/WHITE="N"Neutral/and GREEN=SAFETY GROUND,on the new unit, then use from the wall power BLACK = L1 and White= L2. then on the unit RED=L1 and BLACK=L2(either way you hook these 2 up there isn't a polarity issue on these 2 wires) on the units hook-up/then use the BARE supply wire as neutral and tie BOTH WHITE and GREEN from the unit together to this BARE wire..

Take care

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.

Jenn air model JED8430bdb


Hi,

A similar concern on a different model (8230):
To my knowledge, the:
green - ground
white - neutral
black - 120 to ground
red - 120 to ground but between red & black, it should be 240. A Jenn-Air JED8230 requires a 3-wire, 120/240 Volt, 60 Hz Outlet.

Pls consult/confirm with your local electrical utility/codes the availability/applicability of this power/wiring system or reference National Electrical Code, NFPA No. 70

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
