Question about Jenn-Air JED8230 Electric Cooktop
I am contemplating today buying a Jenn Air with 2 cartridges. The one I have does not pull exhaust out and sets off fire alarms frequently. This is an older model and I figure the motor is old and I cannot get parts for this unit anymore.. I have been told that a 6 inch pipe may need to be installed. Is this true? Can I adapt the 5 inch that comes with the unit going into a 6 inch? Will it work if I use 5" with 2 bends for 2-1/2 feet, then straight 6 inch piped for 11-1/2 feet? I'm not sure that I have room to cut away for the extra pipe in my floor and I don't want to spend all of this money if this will not work.
Please don't buy another one!!! This is the most poorly designed cooktop made. You would be much happier with another brand. If you really want a treat try Thermador. I had a Jenn Air installed on an outside wall and vented directly outside, It still set off the smoke detector constantly. Very hard to clean., Very poor burners both open coil and smooth top.
