Question about Jenn-Air JED8230 Electric Cooktop

1 Answer

Both burners turn on when only one is needed

I have a 3 year old Jenn-Air convertible cook top with electric griddle and cook top cartridge. After cleaning the cook top, I turned on one of the elements but both elements came on. I swapped out the cook top with the electric griddle, and when I plugged in the grill element the fan came on (as it usually does when using the griddle).
I obviously have a short somewhere. How can I find and fix this problem?

I just had the same problem- when I replaced the whole cartridge.
I repalced the infinite switch- do the one that gets the hottest- or do both.
It is easy to do- just write down the wiring diagram - make sure all power is off- cost of new switch was about $37.00
This solved the problem- however make sure to check the sizng on the new switch shaft as my old knob would not fit properly on the shaft of the new switch.
good luck

Jenn-Air surface cooking elements look rusty and ugly


they make a special cleaner - polish just for the "solid" type burners. it looks like shoe polish and will make the burners look like new again. not sure where you can find it online but go to your local appliance parts houseand they will know what it is your needing.
