Problem with double burner Jenn-Air JED8430 Electric Cooktop

When the switch control for the double burner is turned to the small burner, the full burner still comes on and only at high. When the large burner is turned on, that too is not adjustable, and remains on high. Is my problem with the burner, or with the switch, or something else?

    Thanks for the suggestion. By "ignition switch", I'm assuming you mean burner control. The stove is electric and as far as I know does not have an ignition switch.



    If it is the burner control, is it something that just plugs in, or does it require special wiring and an expert technician to install?

    My dual burner for JED8430 stops working after a while, I had replaced the switch as well as the limiter (thermostat). But with the new switch it worked for one time and now the light for the switch comes on but the burner does not come on.

It's an ignition switch. don't change the burner cartridge.

My electric stove top burner only works on high


This is for the glass top units. well i'm not sure if your problem is with your large or small single burner or the large expandable burner. If it's the large or small single burner replace the burner and if it the expandable also replace the burner. If you have a coil burner replace the infinite switch. Good luck hope this helps you.

Jenn air jed 8430 electric cooktop control switch for rear burner


The cook top is attached to the wood frame by brackets, just remove the screws and the electric connection, make sure the power is off from the main box, it's a 220 volt wiring and then just lift the top off. to remove the glass, look around the edges and you should see some small screws, just remove them and the glass should lift off.

Heating element will not come on


The best to test that is to remove the top and take the outer coil and use it on any of the other burners to see if it heats up, then youll know for sure is the element or the switch.

Knob not working and some burners not heating


The switch under that knob is bad.  It's called an infinite switch.  As far as the elements go, first thing to check is for proper voltage (220) to the cooktop.  Let me know what you find.
