Default new switch may be wired wrong
Model Number: JEC8430ADS   Brand: Jenn-Air   Age: 1 - 5 years

I replaced the switch in my cook top and now when I turn it on it stays on high. It will not turn down. Is it possible that incorrect wiring could be the problem?

What is the part number of the new switch?

How did you wire it?

AP4009110 Is part number of the switch. I will have to pull the cook top out and check the wiring. I will get back to you later on the wiring. Thanks for the quick reply!!!

This switch is for a dual element. What is the element you use it for?

OK this switch is for the dual element burner on the right front of the cooktop. I took the cooktop out and checked the wiring.
jumper wire P1 to S1
Black ground to P1
Yellow from burner to #4
White from burner ro #4A
Red hot to P2
Red to #2 (this red is connected to a ceramic block on the side of the burner).
Black to S2 (light)
So thats how I have it wired. I bought the switch a while back and thought everything was OK. My wife didn't us the burner for a while then when she used it she noticed it wouldn't turn down.So it must have been like that to start with because all I did was turned it on then right back off. I might have got a bad switch!!! Thanks Robert

Robert,

Try to remove the jumper wire.

I removed the jumper wire and the burner works good now. But, the light that tells you the burner is on does not come on when you turn the switch on. I'm guessing the jumper wire has to connect one of the burner wires to the light. I'm going to get my multi meter out and see if I can figure it out.
Thanks for all your help!!!
Robert
