Question about Jenn-Air JED8230 Electric Cooktop

# Wire from circuit breaker is Black/White/Bare(ground). From Jenn Air is Black/White/RED/Green (ground). How do I wire? Jenn Air Black to Black, Jenn Air Red and White to White? Grounds (Jenn Air Green to Bare? Thanks

I am afraid I don't understand your answer. It's late and maybe I'm just not thinking clearly, but there goes again. This is a Jenn Air JED8230 cooktop.\r\n\r\nThere are four wires from the Jenn Air: a red, a black, a white, and a green that I must connect to the three wire power from the breaker which has a black, a white, and a bare.

I assume the Jenn Air green is the ground and should be connected to the power bare (ground to ground).

I also assume the Jenn Air white is a neutral and should be connected to the power white.

This leaves the Jenn Air red and black both to be connected to the power black.

Is this correct?

Again I apologize for my sluggishness. If you could please respond to me at donr4535@yahoo.com I would greatly appreciate it. Maybe I can fix breakfast.\

Thanks again

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

Check with a volt-meter for 240 volts across the BLACK and WHITE House wires,then

Hook-up: Bare House wire to the jenn air WHITE & GREEN=Neutral & Ground wire

NEXT the BLACK house wire to the jenn air BLACK wire =120volts

NEXT the WHITE house wire to the jenn air RED wire=120volts

then check the voltage between the 2 sets of wires above you just connected together for the required 240volts

I hope this clears the issue up for you!!!

### 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.

### Wiring problem

those wires dont go to the down draft. those colors are to hook up the stove. do you have the instalation instructions?

### Wiring problem

yes that is right, color to color turn of breaker before touching wires. green and bare copper go together.

### Burners not working but fan is

Are you sure that is the proper wire from the wall? What you are describing is a 110 volt circuit. THis cooktop should be connected with at least #10 wire and fused at 30 amps. You should have black red and at least white with possible bare ground wire. Assuming somebody used the wrong wire during original install job, you have it connected right. Please replace with heavier wire if it is not #10 Or at least make sure it is fused at no more than 20 amps if smaller wire. (You may sometimes blow circuit breaker if all burners are used on high at once) Use a volt meter and check voltage. If this is a 220 volt circuit you should have 220 volts between black and white and 110 volts from either one to bare ground wire.

### 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.

### Wiring installation

You do need a 208/240 volt supply from your service panel. The green is ground, white is nuetral, and the red and black should measure 120 volts each to ground or 240/208 between each other. It is normal for most breaker panels to supply 208/240 between adjacent insulators. If you are only getting 1/2 of that then the circuit breaker may not be straddling the insulator bar but be 1/2 notch out and both breaker pins contacting the same 110 supply.
