Stove top dual infinite switch

Purchased new dual infinte switch part #12002125 for Jenn Air CVE 3400 cooktop, not sure how wires should be connected. The terminals are not the same as the faulty switch that has now been removed from the unit. Need instructions on how to connect wires to the new switch. Any idea?

    Same problem, but with a GE Cooktop. Old switch had PILOT, P1, P2, 2 and 4 terminals, the new switch has P, L1, L2, H1, H2 and the post size between the original PILOT and the current P is not the same, so now I'm into changing the connector at the end of the wire.

    I think I've followed the cooktop diagram to deduce that PILOT=P, 4=H1, P2=L1, 2=H2 and P1=L2....however with the post being a differnt size, I'm not up to getting into that business. I think I've found an exact switch replica on the web and I'm going down that path

If the new switch is a substitute, should have come with instructions.
If no instructions, I would suggest matching the markings on the switch next to each, match terminal marking on old switch as L1 to marking on new switch as L1. The markings are industry standard and should match from old switch to new switch.

If you need further assistance, let me know

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.

I just went thru this problem. There are TWO possible switch replacement parts. one is 12002422 and was my correct replacement number.
12002125 was the WRONG part..would not work no matter how you wired it. the failed switch being replaced was part number 7403p406-60. 7403p851-60 will NOT work.
my serial # was 12284711qz
call Jen air customer support and give your serial # and switch part # to get the correct part and diagram... Jenn air changed parts and wiring in the middle of a run.

My Jenn AirCooktop Model CVE3401 burner problems

The part you need to replace is the switch. The switch is housed under the top and connects to the dial you are turning.
The switch for the dual burner is 12002125, and 74011242 for the single burner.

The single burner switch runs about $20.00 and the dual runs about $50.00 for the parts

I need instructions for wiring in replacing a dual burner switch on a CVE3400B cooktop. The replacement switch is different from the original. Do you have a diagram for the new switch that shows how to...

We followed the instructions that came with the switch that addressed a "compound wiring" configuration. We also used the black jumper wire as shown in the instructions.
We got to this solution in a trial by error manner though, because the three of us working the problem were convinced the stovetop was wired in a "piggyback configuration" and tried that road first. It would have been helpful if the instructions had included an explanation of the switch manufacturer's interpretation of "compound" and "piggyback" configuration.

My electric stove top burner only works on high

This is for the glass top units. well i'm not sure if your problem is with your large or small single burner or the large expandable burner. If it's the large or small single burner replace the burner and if it the expandable also replace the burner. If you have a coil burner replace the infinite switch. Good luck hope this helps you.

Both burners turn on when only one is needed

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
