SOURCE: My electric jennair down draft

It can be short in control board.The weak components on the board gets shot.Actually as you mentioned that circuit breaker tripped.When the components gets weak and board cannot handle the flow of current, at that time it trips the breaker, so that components don't get shorted.But if still the circuit breakers is turned on, then in some cases the breaker trips again or in some cases the weak components on the main control board gets popped out and unit quits working.------- As per the problem mentioned the main control board has top be replaced. But still get the voltage checked at the board.This will help.----------

You can get required parts from online sites like: --- or from searspartsdirect online site.

----------- This should help. Thanks.Helpmech.

. Burners will not work unless the down draft fan is turned on and then neither works at full capacity.I flipped the breaker off and on.

Call Jenn-Aire to have a technician troubleshoot your cook top on site. You will save time and aggravation whether your cook top is gas or electric, possibly wired improperly, etc,etc,etc.

Electric cook top only gets 120 instead of 240V

see the diagram and fix it. You have lost 1 phase open the outlet wall and measure the phase, go to the main panel breaker open the circuit, and repair the phase, if you are NOT shure call some electrician.
God bless you

My electrolux iduction cook top sends error across the whole bord when I put anythng on the inductoin burner

You may try and reset the induction cook top by disconnecting the power to the unit for up to 30 seconds. This will clear most false error codes. You can disconnect power by flipping the circuit breaker off and back on. If the error code does not clear, then the unit more than likely can be experiencing an issue with the EOC and user interface board. This is not a typical do it yourself job; please consult a professional or your manufacturer.

I had cooktop on low and it started making noise. The ceramic top pitted in two places. Is it still safe to use. I used a flat skillet.

Sounds like there might be a short. If you are adventurous, I would tell you to open the top and look for shorts, otherwise, you will have to replace it because of the fire hazard.

Was using 4 burners and they all stopped working- electric burn smell in kitchen. External house breaker is not tripped

When you used all elements the power supply wire have been
gone to the maximum current absorbed so to the maximum heat. When the cook top
is new it can withstand this heat but due to long time used now you have burned
out wires and probably to junction point. So now the power supply wire is
burned and is open circuit thus not any power to the heater. The wires have
just open circuit and they don't touch each other or the metal body of the cook
top that is why you don't have the circuit breaker fuse to trip off. So now you
need to disassemble the cook top and you will very easily find the burn point
which should be melded and burned black and replace all parts that they have
been burned with new one.

Here is the link where you find the parts layout, the wiring
diagram and also order any parts you might need.

Also just for safety, avoid to use all four heater at the
same time in the future.

How to un lock my GE Profile Induction cook top?

Try turning off the breaker for at least 10 min and re apply power. If this doesn't work, then there's an internal problem.
If after 10 minutes the cooktop is STILL locked:

Push the touch pad that looks like a padlock for at least 5 seconds. The lock light should go out.

Breaker in panel tripped and won't turn back on

You may have a short circuit to ground fault in the electric cook top. Divide and conquer. Unplug the cook top and try to reset the breaker. If the breaker resets, then you have a problem with the electric cook top. If it doesn’t, then the problem is at the electrical panel side. Either problem will require a qualified technician’s assistance. I hope this helps. Good luck.

Power requirement

If you are running new wire to the cook top. You need to run 10x4 wire. The 12x4 wire is not large enough for the 220v. Also the 20 amp breaker is not large enough to run the cook top. You need to use a duel 30 amp breaker.

Good Luck and please rate 4 thumbs up for the free answer.
