Question about Jenn-Air JED8430 Electric Cooktop

1 Answer

Heating element will not come on

I have a Jenn-air glass cooktop and the outer coil of the double burner will not come on. The control works for the inner coil but will not work when the control is in the double position. Is the problem in the control or the coil? Need help.

    I have exact the same problem as yours. My heating element just out of warranty early this year. Please let me know what was your fix. Thanks.

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.

GE Cooktop JP930 surface element not working


It sounds like the burner needs to be replaced. When they burn out sometimes they short out to ground. The cooktop will have to be removed from the counter and the glass top opened. You will probably be able to see where the element is burned out. Replace it and you should be fine. If it is too expensive to fix just disconnect the wires to the burner where they attach to the control . Then you can use the remaining burners. I really don't know what a replacement burner costs. An open coil is around $30.

Plastic melted on my glass cooktop


didi you try heating the burner slightly to soften the plastic a bit before trying to scrape off, cant see any reason why that wouldnt work, using a razor blade held flat will scrape just about anything off of the glass tops!

You probably have a burnt out element. They almost always short out when they burn out. If it is a coil unit it may be visible. A smooth top unit can't be diagnosed without removing the top glass. Most of the time you can do this yourself. Sometimes when a burner goes it will ruin the switch also.

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.

Burners are not fully heating out to the end


Either the elements are going out or the controlls for the burners are getting croded contacts. Best bet would be to replace both and go for another 7 years :-)
