Blown accessory fuse? jenn air cooktop jed8430adb

Our downdraft fan switch broke (stuck on) on our electric jenn air cooktop jed8430adb so I took it apart, while it was running, to disconnect the switch and accidently touched conduit from the switch to metal on the side resulting in sparks and the whole cooktop (heat lights and all) instantly turning off. I think I blew a fuse on the unit itself (I think a fuse?) so now the whole stovetop is not working. Is there a fuse and replacement switch for that unit and if so - is there a refererance guide (map) to show where to access it?

    Had similar problem. Turned on back burner and has no response. Then tried other burners and no response. Went to check breaker, and when I flipped breaker, there was a spark and pop at the stove top. Tried again,and the same.

    Appliance guy says that need to replace 4 switches...$300. any suggestions?

The unit doesnt have any internal fuses. you have a house fuse blown or circuit breaker that tripped. the fan switch can be found online or from your local parts house and make sure you get the clips to hold it to the mounting tabs.
next time you get ready to work on it, just make sure and turn off the power first as you will touch the metal terminals to the frame again.

Fan stopped working on Jennifer air downdraft electric cooktop. Elements still work fine. Circuit breaker did not trip. Took switch out of line by directly connecting fan leads. Still did not work when...

Generally there is a plug for the fan motor under the range, the panel where the drawer would be should lift off, you will then see the power to the fan motor. The fan motor is only 120Volts not 220V

I used my grill for the first time, & the downdraft didn't work we'll, the house filled with smoke & eventually the downdraft shut off and I had to finish cooking in a pan. My Jenn-Air is...

The downdraft is electric so there must be something malfunctioning with it. It is a high volume downdraft fan that is to be vented to the outside. Could it be that something has clogged the vent hole up, not allowing the fan to evacuate the smoke?

While I am not a big fan of Jenn-Air, their fans are usually high quality if they are installed correctly, with the proper vent lines.

I have a Jenn-Air downdraft cooktop. My blower fan will not shut off. When I press down on the metal part the knob goes on, it will shut off. Can anyone help?

It appears you simply have a bad switch. Try contacting Jenn-Air or looking them up on the web to find out if they have replacement parts available

Jenn-Air Cooktop replacement needed

You can get a new cooktop surface from Maytag/Jennair for $229. It is a pain however to replace it. Where is the crack in your cooktop and does that crack pass directly through a heating element? If not, then you may be able to repair it. I broke the corner off mine, and then dropped the piece (now 5 pieces). I was able to bond them back together and you really can't tell it was ever broken. But, it takes some work.
