Question about Jenn-Air JED8230 Electric Cooktop

1 Answer

Electical problem? I have installed my Jenn-Air JED8230. The house wiring wasn't color coded, so I can't tell for sure if I have the right wires connected. The fan turns on and the red power lights come on, so I know I have power getting to the unit. However, neither of the burner elements get warm, and the fan only works on low setting. When I put it on hogh, it works for a few seconds, and then quites.

    Contractor disconected my Jenn-Air Cooktop and did not reconnect. There is a red, black, green and white wire on top and three wires on the bottom, one black one white and one metal grounding wire. With the electricity turned off, which wires connect together?

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.

I have an Jenn.Air electic stove, and there'e a vent to the outside. How can I keep the cold air from coming in?


I put a tea towel over the vent surface, also a piece of bubble wrap does the trick if used as insulation, and both can be removed quickly to use the surface.

There are four wires in the jenn air, black, white, green, and red. Do both the white and green wires go to the ground wire from my house wiring?


the wires coming out of the wall are they all coated or is one bare, what size (gage) are they if there isn't 4 wires coming out the wall and there becomes problem that needs repair and the tech sees it the warranty may be void read the installation instructions they should answer your questions.

Jenn Air cooktop has 4 wires Black, white, red, and green and my house supplies power with 3 leads white, black , & green. How are the wires hooked up to power the unit?


Old plug: green is ground, white and blace are both hot power. New cooktop: green is ground, WHITE is COMMON, black and RED are hot power. You are going to need an electrician to run a new circuit and plug for your new cooktop.

Jenn air electric range wiring diagram


In a normal house, black and red are the hot wires and are wired to a circuit breaker or fuse at the panel box. White goes to the ground bar. Sometimes the white(neutral) is seperated from the ground. Sometimes they can be connected together. At the fuse box they both go to the silver ground bar. If you are attaching a cord and plug purchase one to match the outlet you have. Usually at the terminal block the hot wires are on the outside. Neutral in the middle. At the terminal block there is a metal strap or wire going from the center terminal to the frame of the stove. If the cord you have is just 3 wires leave it. If the cord you have uses 4 wires remove the strap and connect it seperately to the green or ground wire on the cord.
