Question about Jenn-Air JED8230 Electric Cooktop
You really shouldn't have tried this. If you mixed up the neutral and hot wire YOU COULD HAVE BEEN KILLED!!!! You also could have burned out the fan motor. The fan operates on 120 volts the rest on 220. On most cooktops the frame is grounded to the neutral. If you connected this wrong the entire outside of the cooktop could be live. You might not be shocked if you have on rubber shoes but if you touched the stove barefooted you could be killed! The house wire should have 2 hot wires usuallly black or red. It really doesn't matter which is which. There should be a neutral (usually white or bare) There can also be a seperate ground wire (usually green or bare) If only 3 wires from house connect the white and green together. The minimum wire size should be #10 fused at 30 amps. Test the voltage between the 2 hot wires. It should be 220. Between either hot wire and neutral or ground should be 110 volts .. IF YOU DON"T KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING CALL SOMEONE ELSE. This is very dangerous if hooked up wrong.
