20 Most Recent Jenn-Air JED8430 Electric Cooktop Questions & Answers


A metal pot lid was set on top of the ceramic cook

In case anyone else encounters this problem here's what
worked for me. I had this happen last night and came here
searching for answers. It did not unloosen on it's own
after being left overnight. Finally this morning I came up
with something that worked for me. Shoot the lid all
around with a hairdryer and use a towel to keep seeing if
it has loosened up enough to move. After a few miuntes of
spraying it with the heat it stared sliding around and then
came up.

Cold air draft

the only way is to block off/check the flapper., if your not going to use for the winter you can disconnect the vent from under the cabinet temporaily and close off there till you can gain access to check outside grill

New granite countertops big circle spots on.

They suggested a dryer because they thought the stone had absorbed a liquid and was causing the stone to darken. This is common on unsealed granite. If you put a sealer on the counter tops however, whatever it is you see there will remain under the seal. I would ask the installer to come out and take a look at it. If they are unwilling, the Home Depot has a cleaning kit sold in the kitchen counters area of the store made by a company you can call and they will ask questions about the problem and provide advice on how to fix it. They are extremely helpful with free suggestions as well as stuff you may be able to purchase to fix the problems. In any case, granite is sensitive stuff and while it is physically durable it seems to be extremely sensitive to stain and etching and learning about proper care, cleaning, and dos and dont's will save a lot of heart ache and time for you down the road. (For instance oil absorbing into the stone is a several day ordeal to fix). Good luck with getting the results you want. If you did find a specific solution please share it here.

Spot on Jenn Air smooth cook top stove with down draft.

Use Cooktop Cleaner with a soft micro cloth. Don't use water. Buff until the mark disappears. Hint: Never clean the cooktop until it is completely cool to touch as doing so makes cleaning much harder. Never use abrasives on the glass or abrasive cast iron skillets.

Was cooking fudge-hot sugary liquid boiled over

Maybe try white vinegar - apparently you can clean glass hobs with it & it might help dissolve the fudge stuff if you pour it on that. I wouldn't use a razor as you might damage the hob more.

I have a 4 burner Jenn-Air JED8430ADB electric

The cook top is connected to 220 volts. In the house wiring there are two legs each 115 volts. Usually they connect with a red wire, black wire and the third a neutral. It is likely that at the connection to the unit or at the electrical box a connection has failed or the 220 volt circuit breaker has failed on one leg. A qualified electrician needs to do the repair! project4-nbbnxwvnfadegsi2zsme4jri-2-0.jpg project1-nbbnxwvnfadegsi2zsme4jri-2-2.jpg Hope this helps?

Right side of hotplates have no power, while left side work fine

I had no instructions, manual, no receipt at all, due to a residential move. I asked questions and described the product numerous times - even went to Office Max to ask for any advice, describing what the Router action was and what was different. They gave me a list of possible Router Companies. This led me back to several phone calls, which did finally help. Guess what - part of the problem was with new techniques at my "Online Provider."

Broken glass cook top

You probably need to replace it. They are though fairly expensive. A little under $200 to be exact. http://www.partstore.com/ModelSearch.aspx?MfgName=Maytag&BrandName=JennAir&CloselyRelatedModels=true&ModelNumber=JED8430&x=41&y=30
