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!

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."

This is the correct way to wire the right front burner on Jenn-Air JEC8430ADS cooktop. Let's do the red wires first. The red wire that comes from #2 on the switch goes to the common connection for the element that should be labeled 2a. The other red wire goes to either of the "b", hot surface indicator switch contacts and the black to the other. Use 1b or 2b for these connections whichever reaches easiest. The yellow wire goes to the inside loop of the burner and the tan to the outside element.

240 volts,8,300 watts would calculate to amp draw of 34.5 amps and thusly a 40 or 50 amp circuit is reccomended

This means the oven lock is activated. The cook top touch panel is likely causing some problem.
Try to press the child lock button and see if F1 goes off. Otherwise the control panel will need to be replaced.

Hi I have changed out the maytag and it takes a little time but it is easy to do ,
but costley, First of all turn off power or unplug unit, open the front of this unit and you will see to small screws top left and top right side, after removing the two screws then lift the top from the front, then all the wires will be visable to you, if you are not able to remember all the wires where there go then mark wires with masking tape or you can take a picture if you have a camara that you can use . like i said it is easy fix just take your time >

The burner switch for that element will need to be replaced to fix this type of problem.

To replace the switch, shut off the circuit breaker to the cook top and remove it from the counter. Remove the knob from the switch that you are replacing. Remove the burner box from the cook top surface. Remove the screws that secure the burner switch. Note the location of the wires connected to the original switch. Take a digital picture if necessary. Remove the wires and replace the switch. Make sure that the wires are connected properly. Reassemble and test the cook top.

This information should help you fix this problem yourself. If you need more assistance, reply with additional details.

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.You have to lift the unit up from the counter use some boards across the counter to support it and remove the screws from around the unit under the glass lip. On some units there are screws under the vent grille also. After removing the screws lift the whole top off.Thats all you have to do.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..
