I attempted to install my jenn-aire jjw9330ddb wall oven and accidentally connected the neutral white wire to one leg of the hot. the oven came on briefly and then cut off. i could smell electrical burning. after disconnecting the wiring and discovering i had wired it wrong i wired it correctly but nothing happened. i checked for voltage to the terminal block in the oven and to the circuit board and i had correct voltage. i think i fried the circuit board. what do you suggest.

Re: jenn-aire jjw93330ddb wiring installation problem
To start you should get a Multimeter and check if there is still power in the cables coming to the oven. The wires may have blown after the short, in this case there won't even be power coming to the oven. Regarding fuses, (microwaves have more than one fuse), there should be one or more fuses on the power board, where electric cables connect to. This is the one you have to check, this should be a traditional cylindric fuse held only by his slot. If you do not find it, it may be soldered to the boars, in this case consider replacing the board. Your problem is not necessarily the fuse, it can be for example a blown capacitor, get a Multimeter and start testing power board, or call a technician.

One side of your 240 volt connection is disconnected, most likely in the plug wire connection. The neutral and one leg of your 240 is working thereby your display still works since it runs of 120 volts. Happened to me I had one wire come loose from stress on the plug
Jenn-Air is now a division of Whirlpool so you might want to check with their closest service company and ask if there is a wiring diagram pasted inside a panel of the unit.
This is common practice on many appliances.
To replace oven heat element follow the steps below carefully
Turn off the power to the oven at the breaker box.
Take out the screws holding the element bracket in place. These will be on the back wall of the oven, or sometimes on the top.
Pull the element toward you a little bit until you see the wires behind it.
Unscrew the leads and take the bad element out.
Hold the new element up while you attach the wires to it. Don't stretch the wires any more than you have to.
Line up the element while tucking the wires back in. Be sure not to pinch the wires between the bracket and the back wall.
Fasten the brackets, making sure they're tight.
Restore power to the appliance.
basically to install the elements , place it in the same position as the old one. Connect it the same way the old one was connected, using the same screws to hold it in place. Just about all the other components of an electric range or oven
IF you nhave a 3 wire feed fronm the house for your range, you connect the red and black for the power and then use the copper wire from the wall to connect to the white and copper wires from the range. All new construction must have a 4 wire feed to a range and dryer.
This model of cook top needs the 4 wire install because it has both 220v and 110v circuits. The forth wire is a neutral that operates the 110v circuit. You can move the ground of the 3 wire outlet to neutral, but ONLY! if the ground wire is insulated. What this will do is give you both your 220v and 110v circuits. The problem with that is your cook top will not be grounded. The best solution is to locate a neutral wire and tap into it, this will give you your 4 wire circuit. Your missing a neutral in a 3 wire outlet.
THE ONLY SOLUTION FOR THE BAD DISPLAY IS TO REPLACE THE CLOCK. I HAVE A JENN AIR OVEN TODAY AS A WORK ORDER TO REPLACE THE CLOCK FOR A FAILED DISPLAY.
FOR THE JGW8130DDB WITH NO POWER ANYWHERE, IT SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE A SUPPLY PROBLEM. MAKE SURE THE WIRING IS HOOKED UP WITH THE RED AND WHITE WIRES RECEIVING 240 VOLTS AND THE WHITE WIRE ATTACHED TO NEUTRAL / GROUND.IF THE OVEN HAS A BARE COPPER WIRE AND THE HOUSEHOLD WIRING ONLY HAS THREE WIRES, COMBINE THE WHITE WIRE AND THE COPPER WIRE TOGETHER AND ATTACH TO THE HOUSEHOLD NEUTRAL / GROUND .
UNLESS YOU ARE SURE ABOUT THE HOOKUP IN THE BREAKER/FUSE BOX, DO NOT GO SIMPLY BY THE COLOR OF THE WIRES.
Get a long thin flat blade screwdriver. Gently pull the probe with one hand and press on the back side of the probe connector with the screwdriver until you feel no slack in the wires. Don't pull too hard! Rotate the blade of the screwdriver until the connector lines up with the opening and puill it through. Works for installing the new one too.
