Question about Jenn-Air JED8430 Electric Cooktop

1 Answer

Stovetop 3 wires to wall 4 wires

GE stovetop has red, black and ground. The wall has 2 blacks, white and ground? In reading different online articles, it appears some recommend capping the white off and others recommend combining the ground and the white. This presumes the red to black, black to black and ground to ground.
Which approach is best?

    Thank you. While waiting for a reply, I asked the helpful ex-contractor at Home Depot and he concluced that it must be a 110v stove top. Based on this, he suggested, hooking red to black, black to white, ground to ground and capping the extra black. I hooked it up this way and it worked, albeit at 110v.

    After seeing your email, I looked the



    GE
    JP346SMSS
    30" Smoothtop Electric Cooktop up on the site from whom I purchased the unit and it is a 240v unit. Now what do I do?

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.

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

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.

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

I need a wiring diagram hook up for a Jenn air 201595D Range top & also for a GE Double oven JKP36G0D1B0


Cook top manuals and installation.

Could not find installation manual on oven but did find manual. If you are just trying to wire to the house wiring you need to conect this way. Yo uwill have 3- 4 wires from the house. 1 white, 2 black or 1 black and 1 red. From range hook white to white Black to black or red they both are the hot line. and the other black or red to black or red from the house. If you have bare wires that is the ground There is 2 ways to do the hook up on the ground. 1st way is if you have ground in box from house wire them together. 2nd way is if there is no groung just wire it up with the white wire that is the netural line. It will be fine that way. If you can see in you main braker box the netural and the ground go to the same bus bar.
