I had the same problem. Mine was caused by liquid seeping into the infinite switch (the switch that gets rotated by the knob to set burner temperature). This caused one of the live wires to short to ground within the switch. Bad Design IMHO. Replacing the switch fixed the problem (you can get replacement parts at Searspartsdirect.com - search using the cooktop model number).
You first need to remove the unit from its installation. Start by disconnecting the exhaust fan from the ductwork. Then push the cooktop up.
To get at the switch you need to remove the top by taking off only the top row of screws all around the unit and also in the down draft cavity (the down draft cavity is where the grease guard mesh is)

Turn off the circuit breaker to the cooktop. Verify by making sure the burners/fan do not come on. Disconnect the exhaust fan (underneath the cooktop) from the ductwork by removing the tape that joins it. While you are underneath the cooktop, open the junction box. Label the four wires that are joined so that you will be able to connect them later. Then disconnect the four wires. Remove the metal sheating that connects to the junction box (there is a nut on the inside of the junction box that you loosen. Pull out all the supply wires (from the mains) from the junction box. Then push the cooktop up and out and lay it flat on a table with the flat side down.
Take off only the top row of screws all around the unit. Rotate the unit so that you can get to the down draft cavity (the down draft cavity is where the grease guard mesh is). Remove the two center screws. Then pull the black top off.

If I've got your request correct, here's a link to the installation instructions for the CVG-4280P cooktop.

I do not know to what degree your cook top is disassembled. So I have include the diagrams of all the components. As is would be a rather long explanation to give you on how to reassemble everything only the diagrams are included. Sometimes that's all you need to reassemble things. However if you need specific's please just let me know exactly which section you need help with.

Also the listing is for JED 8430 and 87946 so if the diagrams don't look correct let me know.

Hope this helps.

You might be able to do the job yourself, but it can be quite challenging. You should definitely consider getting a tech to do it. Whether you'll save any by getting the part yourself depends on the repair outfit. However, if they order the part and it's wrong or something doesn't work out, they are responsible- not you. Some places might charge you for the extra callout if they have to make an xtra trip for wrong part.

get fire-proof silicon and run a bead around the outside of the range and whatever your range is sitting in, e.g. bench-top.

HI, The button is spring loaded. the mechanism is damaged. This will require you to replace the entire switch. There is no repair procedure for this type of damage. The spring has lost its structure. There are three styles. Most are recessive, and the glass should be removed, in order to dis-anchor the switch housing. If you can relay the entire model number, i will confirm the removal procedure. Thanks..

hello I assume you mean you are installing a new cook top, You can use caulk but its not easy to clean up after. Normally when I install a new cook top I use plumbers putty to seal it and bed it in. Hope this helps! Mike

Most stove vents have a diverter plate which prevents air from coming in. When the fan is turned on, this diverter is opened by the air flow and allows the air to flow through. It sounds like this plate is either stuck or was not installed when the ventilation duct was installed.

its would be best to install a damper
whether auto matic
or manuely operated
this is a common problem for the down draft
ive seen some people install things similar
to dryer vent louvers,
but check you exhaust area and still if you can block direct draft
but dont block it so that it cannot exhaust properly

These burners are not supposed to be operated uncovered. If indeed the burner is covered and it is still causing the controls to burn than the resistance for that burner is failing and the burner should be replaced. Thank you, Dana
