Question about Jenn-Air JED8430 Electric Cooktop

1 Answer

Burners are not fully heating out to the end

One of the back burners I found goes off and on and does not appear to be fully heating "on high" anymore, there is a 1/2 inch difference between the heating element and the circle on the stove top. This circle use to be fully "heated". The second burner is now doing the same thing. Not heating all the way out to the "end circle" like it use to. My Jenn-Air is about 7 years old. I would not expect it to be "worn out" already, but have no idea what else it could be? thanks in advance

Either the elements are going out or the controlls for the burners are getting croded contacts. Best bet would be to replace both and go for another 7 years :-)

Light "Burner On" stays on all the time on my electric stove GE model JBS27WH2WW


I have a GE Range Model JBS27W H2WW and the serial# XXXXX that I was cooking on and the back burner starting throwing out sparks and blew a hole in the coil and the drip pan. Now the light Burner on is staying on and I switched the 8 inch burner in the front with this 8 inch burner and still cannot get it to work.

Maytag cse9000ade cooktop. Does anyone have


Hi Greg. Welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly. I have been looking into this for several hours now. Even service manual(s). The only thing I can find is the yellow wire goes from the infinite switch to the right side elements. I don't see a blow on your model so the wiring diagram should be on the bottom of the pan cover. The bad news is I can not tell if it is actually on the bottom or inside the bottom. From everything I can see it appears that the yellow wire would be attached to L1 vs where you currently have it connected i.e neutral. I can not come up with the wiring diagram that is part of your cooktop but all of the other Electric Maytag and Jenn-Aire models show the same thing. Yellow wire from the infinite switch and L1. Take a look at your wiring diagram if you can find it and see if you come up with the same conclusion.

This became one of those solve the mystery questions for me and I literally have been looking at it for about 3 hours now. trying to get something I can safely pass to you that will not damage your unit.

With the yellow wire on neutral currently it would be operating on 110V and have low heat. Placing the yellow wire on L1 (Left) should get 208V to the right side burners. Again.. take a look at the schematic / wiring diagram that is attached to your unit.

This is the best I can do from here. The users manuals I have found for your cooktop are in several languages. ENGLISH is not one of them :(

Poping sound, sparks shooting out and 220 circuit breaker out


Did you move the breaker fully off before turning it back on? make sure the offending burner is off.

It sounds as though the element shorted out.

Jenn-Air JGD8130


The problem is the pot(s) is too far from the heat. Jenn-air needs to make a burner cover that is closer to the burner for boiling water...
