Question about Jenn-Air JED8430 Electric Cooktop
Cant figure out the wiring for this electric down draft model. The cooktop has green, white, black and red wiring. I have black, white and ground coming from my service. I connect black to black, white to white, double grounded and have the red wire left. I have insulated that wire. When I re-energize the breaker, I can get the fan to work but no heating elements. Can someone tell me what I need to do?
with the indulgence of the others...
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.

Well it sounds to me like they didnt run the proper service from your breaker box from the cooktop hook green and white to your house ground then blk to blk and white to red try that now your colors from your house service should have blk and blk white and ground or blk and red white and ground pull your breaker cover and see if blk and white arent hooked to the breaker if they are then they are both hot
