Question about Jenn-Air JED8430 Electric Cooktop

Open Question

I am reinstalling the cooktop after having the counter replaced and have a question about the wiring. My wiring coming in is B/W/copper ground. The cooktop is R/W/B, so I believe the correct wiring is Supply B and W to cooktop R and W (either order) and cooktop W to copper ground. Is that correct? The wiring diagram shows the white as a neutral Red and Black as lines in, but I do not have a separate neutral if the B & W supply are two legs of a 240V circuit. Thanks, Bruce Hastie

Whirlpool Electric Cooktop Wiring


sound like you have a three wire setup on you house most commonly the black wire is the L1 wire or one of the hot wires and the red is the L2 wire and is also one of the hot wire in this instance your white wire would be your neutral/ground wire this would connect to the copper wire on your cook top depending on the model it would have a red wire a black wire and the copper wire but some may also have a white wire also if this is the case on a three wire setup you would attach the copper and white wires together also if needed you can goto the maufactures website and download an instalation guide.

I need tio hook up a 4 wire cooktop(Bl R, W, Gr/copper to a 3 wire boat(Bl-L1, W-L2 and Gr) Can anyone help?


hi my name is mark, you need to check local electrical code before wiring cooktop. if it is allowed the white and ground/copper can be tied together with green from house. but if not allowed you will have to run a seperate white wire or new 8ga 3 wire/ with ground from breaker box. check the code first. and shut off power before you wire cooktop. thanks for your question.

Raplacing 3 wire cooktop with 4 wire cooktop


if you look in most panels the ground and the neutrals are tied to the same ground. they might be in a different location within the panel but they are common to each other. if you are concerned about having a seperate ground get yourself a ten foot, one inch diameter copper rod drive it into the ground about nine foot six inches. then mix up a strong salt water solution, about a couple of gallons and pour it around the rod. voilla, you have an independent ground. this might sound like a bunch of bull ----, but it is valid information. if you still have reservations call the building department in your town and they will verify it for you.

How to wire a jenn air cooktop JEC9530ADB


the new cooktops and ovens now have a 4th wire used for separating the ground and neutral. some new homes and remodeled homes have a 4th wire run from the circuit panel to the unit.
you dont have this but it is ok to just hook up the white and green/ground wires together. then red to red and black to black. it will work properly and thats all you have to do.
