If you are running new wire to the cook top. You need to run 10x4 wire. The 12x4 wire is not large enough for the 220v. Also the 20 amp breaker is not large enough to run the cook top. You need to use a duel 30 amp breaker.

Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer.

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

Bake and broil do not work


assuming that the worst case senario has taken place
first thing i would check is ensure i have proper voltage at the outlet, 120 from each side to ground
220 across L1-L2
the elements are the only thing on the range that uses 220v
if you know how to use a mutimeter
you can test both the elements
disconnect the range at teh breaker
take out the screws at the back wall that hold the elements in
pull out about an inch becareful they dont leave much slack on the wires
disconnect on element terminal and apply your leads your looking for continuity, your meter should beep
if not replace the element
if yes, let the element hang ensureing niether terminal touches anything, reconnect the other terminal
now turn the stove on bake if your doing the lower
turn you meter to ac voltage
you should read 220v
anything less than that, your problem is before that

JED8430BD Wiring


from supply
white, black - should be hot then ground

On cooktop
red, black - should be hot white - neutral then ground

If you have a volt meter measure
supply
between white - black 220v
between white or black - ground 110

cooktop
between red - black 220v
between red or black - ground or neutral 110

If the above is confirmed
connect
red (cooktop) to white(supply)
black (cooktop) to black(supply)
white (cooktop) to ground(supply)

Never...ever change the fuse rating upward on an existing circuit to accomodate a new appliance. The fuse is a protective device designed to limit current to the level the wiring can safely handle. There is a strong possibility of fire at some point!!!!

If you are rewiring, most places require up to 30 amps for cooktop wiring anyway. Use #10 copper wire for that purpose. If you are doing this yourself, make all connections tight and install all grounds.

Elecrical hook-up for cooktop


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.

Frigidaire smooth cooktop PLEC30S9EC


Smalltree, You may want to make sure that they have 220 wired to the cooktop. I've seen a lot of new construction where they are hooking the cooktops up to 120V and wondering why they're not working. Check this first and post back..Catriver.
