Hello. we had a new counter top put in. we are using the same GE 4 burner counter top electric stove 1960/1970 hard wired. We forgot to tape the wiring so we could hook it back up the same way that it was. When we hooked it up the burners would not glow red as before when cranked up. They heat up but not quick at all. There are three wires coming from the circut box. 2 thick reds. 1 thick black. The control box under the top of the stove has 2 thick red. 1 small red and 1 small gray . I had the black to the gray, a thick red to the thin red and just capped off the other red. I know it's wired wrong so what would you suggest I try.

Follow the wire, It should go to a junction box within 4 feet. It may be behind a cabinet. Remove the box cover and unscrew the wire nuts. It usually uses armored wire and this is clamped to the box. Release the clamp . Turn off breaker or remove the 2 fuses first.

How do I plug back in the GE stove top burners after unplugging them?


The two leads from the burner fit into a socket in the stove top. It's a bit tricky to get it in just right. If the three metal "legs" on the burner fit snugly into the three slots on the stovetop you did it right.

My Jenn Air Electric stove is making a clicking noise. When I put my hand on one of the cook top knobs I can actually feel a vibration when the click occurs. What is this?


Gas stove? LP? It is probably the electric spark ignitor. Many times when you clean the stove top water from the sponge gets below. The water droplets (align mysteriously) make the connection between the wires, and the stove thinks it's supposed to be igniting. When the water evaporates, the switch will work fine again & the clicking should only occur when igniting & then backed off.

This happened to me once before.

My house wires from the electic stove top has 3 wires and my new bosch electric top has 4 on red, white, green, yellow?


hook the red and yellow off the new stove to the two hot phases-then connect the white on the new unit to the neutral power connection and finally the green wire can hook to the same neutral wire also as long as the power comes directly from the main electrical panel in the home, but not a sub-panel

3 wire cook top to a 4 wire outlet


Older 3 wire connectors where Wht=Neutral Ground Return, Red=One Phase Hot, Blk=Second Phase Hot, of 220VAC stove connections.

Newer Electrical code standard has a forth wire that is bare copper for a separate safety ground return.
I suggest you but a 4 wire pig tail cable for your stove top, available at Depot or Lowes, and connect 3 wires of this 4 wire cable just like the 3 wires are now connected. The 4th bare copper safety is attached to any metal part of the stove. Find a screw you can loosen to wrap it around and tighten.

The fan runs and then shuts off. The light on one dial ''blew''


the white wire from the stove top goes to the green wire or nuteural, the red and black go to the hot wires I had the white wire from the stove top going to the hot wire and I had the same problem as you. am lucky I did not burn up my motor.
