Problem with double burner Jenn-Air JED8430 Electric Cooktop

When the switch control for the double burner is turned to the small burner, the full burner still comes on and only at high. When the large burner is turned on, that too is not adjustable, and remains on high. Is my problem with the burner, or with the switch, or something else?

    I have the same problem. I'm having someone look at it tomorrow.

    Thanks for the suggestion. By "ignition switch", I'm assuming you mean burner control. The stove is electric and as far as I know does not have an ignition switch.



    If it is the burner control, is it something that just plugs in, or does it require special wiring and an expert technician to install?

    My dual burner for JED8430 stops working after a while, I had replaced the switch as well as the limiter (thermostat). But with the new switch it worked for one time and now the light for the switch comes on but the burner does not come on.

My large burner at the front does not work, yet when i replace it with\r\nthe large burner at the back it does not work , yet when you put the front burner at the back it works.


Your front burner is fine. Assuming you have an electric cooktop the problem is in the switch that controls that burner. The infinite control switch. Replace it.

Burner only cooks on high heat.


You need the switch for that burner. The contacts inside are stuck together. You will need to pull the unit and separate the glass from the lower body to access it. To get the right switch you need full model and serial number located on a plate at the bottom of the unit.

Your ability to perform this is dependent on how mechanical you are. The Whole unit must be removed from the counter opening and the base unscrewed from the glass, remove knobs before disassembling. For someone mechanical this is not difficult. De-energize whole unit first.

Once the two pieces are separated the remainder is mechanically easier. Disassemble the box on right containing the switches and replace the correct one. Reverse the process for reassembly. Good Luck

Burner is on high all the time


Is this an older unit - 5 years or more in use? Sounds like the burner element is shot. Check the Amana web site for a replacement.

My electric stove top burner only works on high


This is for the glass top units. well i'm not sure if your problem is with your large or small single burner or the large expandable burner. If it's the large or small single burner replace the burner and if it the expandable also replace the burner. If you have a coil burner replace the infinite switch. Good luck hope this helps you.

Only high setting works on burner


Sounds like the Switch or the element are bad, try trouble shooting them. It's a stove top??

Electric cooktop burner malfunction


The outer ring of the element is most likely broken. You'll need to replace the element.

Burner always on high


I have had this same problem on the JP350.

I have replaced the switch several times, and am now tempted to replace the heating element and the switch the next time it becomes constant (currently, it is intermittent... which has led to some burnt food).
