Recepticle block shorted from grease spill.    Would like a service manual and whatever help to get the old one out.  Trying to figure out how it comes apart.   Also replacement block from RC is wider than original, what do I have to do to make it fit in sealed assembly.  Cut a bigger slot?

Anybody with any experience with this particular model?   Receptacle Terminal block is toast,  Customer ordered new block & cartridge from Repair Clinic.  Block is wider than original   & how it comes apart looks rather tedious.  Would like a wiring diagram also.

Did not give them to me but the new cartridge fit both receptacles.   Regardless if the block is the same I gotta figure how to get it apart.  Started removing screws,  the thing is put together tight.  Looks like everything has to come apart on it both sides of the cook top.

     You might need a helper on this one Brother Patricio.  Gonna have to pull that cooktop out of counter.  Disconnect exhaust hose from blower.  Check if cooktop is anchored by mounting bolts.  Should have enough pigtail to lift unit out of counter enough to expose burner box.  Be mindful of the grease jar.  Remove screws from cooktop frame outer and inner flange.  Remove frame.  Ceramic receptacle block should be accessable at that point.

Wise words, Brother PDuff!

 

The other butt biter on these Jenn-Air terminal jobs is making sure you have the right wire replacement for the affected side.  The ceramic terminal block itself almost never needs replacing-- it's those spaded wires inside the terminal block that burn up, and generally only one of those.  They make two different lengths for each wire color corresponding to which side has the affected terminal block.  Looks like RC has a full selection here:  http://www.repaircli...Connector-Parts

Depending if you got skinny fingers, Remove the screws to the pan, it should drop down just enough to weasel the block out..............it is held in by a bracket that is removed quite easily, just do not drop it........As The Grand Master has stated the blocks, if ever, break, it is the contacts in the block the are damaged.............If you look at the prong on the element or cartridge you will see that the prong itself is burnt or pitted.............Change the prong if it is a cartridge and/or get a new element.....Filing the prong only prolongs the inevitable , it will burn/pit soon....................I carry  a box with a terminal block, prongs and terminals in the service van..( a lot of Jenn-Airs in this neck  of the woods).. once you get it apart it is nice to have extra parts on hand..........You can order just the terminals if you want cuz it is difficult to replace the complete wire.......You can also use the new terminal with the wire, just cut out the old damaged wire/ terminal  and cut the new wire length to match, solder and double heat shrink the connection.....( the terminal is removed from the prong insertion end of the terminal block )...... ..........If you cannot drop the pan just enough, lift the cook top straight up and slip two pieces of wood,  about 30 inch in length for the cook top to rest on ( furring strips  I carry )................plus another piece of wood  1 1/2" by 1 1/2"  by  8 inches long to prop up the top from the pan..........

The dude works offshore so I had to wait on him to come back to to land.

 

part numbers ?

 

Y708730 for the block & JEA7000ADS for the cartridge assb.

 

:unsure: I carry  a box with a terminal block, prongs and terminals in the service van..( a lot of Jenn-Airs in this neck  of the woods).. once you get it apart it is nice to have extra parts on hand..........You can order just the terminals if you want cuz it is difficult to replace the complete wire.......You can also use the new terminal with the wire, just cut out the old damaged wire/ terminal  and cut the new wire length to match, solder and double heat shrink the connection.....( the terminal is removed from the prong insertion end of the terminal block )...... :ermm: 

Can't seem to find just the terminals & prongs to order, just individual wires.   Where can I foind these parts more specefically.   The dude wants it done & is willing to spend the bucks for the labor.

 

Pan is to get the stove p on blocks & get it apart to get a good look at the wiring.   the unit is greasy as a skined bear so I have to contend with that.

 

Still would like a wiring sheet or something, The right side has only one burner working he says & wants me to OK the wiring.  Gracious people
