Jenn Air Cooktop JED8430BDB All Elements Dead

9 posts in this topic

Had a friend call me this afternoon and said he spilled a bit of water on his cooktop and now none of the elements work. I had told him to give it a few days to dry out and he said that it happened about a week ago. I just took a look over the wiring diagram and I don't see any one thing that would cause all the elements to stop working, less the water shorted all four switches. Just wanted to get some insight before I went over to check this one out.

re-set the House Circuit Breaker ?  :whistling:

Already tried that three times.

 

The indicator lights are coming on but not the elements.

With a cooktop, I would first check to make sure my breaker is sending 240v unless there is  easy access to the cooktop's junction box. One of the legs is probably bad  on the breaker

I though about that, but after taking a closer look at the wiring diagram,

the indicator lights are 240v (they work)

the lights are 240v? ! Another appliance head-fake! So if there is not a single source wire for the burner switches, then the switches must be shorted out (unless You now tell me the burners are 120v lol). I can't imagine the water shorting the burners themselves. It should be easy enough to raise the top and test the switches and burners.

He said that he saw a spark and that the breaker tripped. So i suppose it is possible it zapped all four switches. Guess we'll just tear it apart and start checking. I was just trying to get a head start before I got there.

 

Thanks for your help.

... possible it zapped all four switches.

OR a wire / connection somewhere
