I have a Cooktop Jenn-Air Model JED8430. The cooktop glass is broken. Would it be possible to change only the glass? If so, where could I get an other one ?

Yes, you can change just the glass. It is called the maintop assembly and usually starts at $275 and goes up. You will need to get the remaining 3 digits for your particular model in order to get the right glass. A good place to start looking would be: http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-model/JED8430?pathTaken=modelSearch&prst=0&shdMod=JED8430

I need an installation manual for a cvg4380p Jenn-Air cooktop


Hello Chuck,

Your request is for the Jenn-Air CVG-4280P gas cooktop installation instructions, even though the info at the top of the page states a JED8430 electric cooktop,

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

If you'd also like the owner's manual for that same cooktop, here's the link for that too:

Installing Jenn-Air cooktop, model jed8430


Hi, W/D here.

The plenum is the box the blower assembly attaches to. The blower pulls the cooking vapors down the plenum (well) and discharges through the duct.
Best regards, W/D

Yes you can. Call Jenn Air ((877) 232-6771) and give them your model number (serial is helpful too). They sent my replacement glass within a week. I have a model JED8430ABD from 2000 and they had the top. Fit perfectly and took about an hour to replace.

To change it out, after unplugging the cooktop, I removed the metal tape connecting the external vent shaft to the blower. Then I just lifted the entire cooktop out up out of the countertop so I could access the screws on the sides of the cooktop (looking at the edges of the new cooktop glass helped me figure out which screws to remove around the edge). Then I removed the 2 screws in the vent area on top (1 black screw on each side). And that released the cooktop glass from the metal box that holds the burners. I then took the rubber rings out of the knob holes so I could put them in the new cooktop (I almost missed that...). Finally, I put the new cooktop glass on, put the screws back in, lowered the cooktop back into the counter, and retaped the blower to the vent shaft. Voila!

I really wouldn't be afraid of doing this yourself if you are handy at all. And it will save you a ton. Good luck.

PS The screws around the perimeter are hexigon shapped, so you can't just use a screwdriver. I found my Black & Decker electric screwdriver had that same shaped hole that it held the bit, so I just pulled out the bit and used the screwdriver that way. Worked like a charm.

Fairly difficult but doable for the mechanically inclined. They are all a little different - look underneath to uninstall the entire unit (turn off power first!). It is probably held in by a few screws. The glass is likely held by screws underneath as well. Hope this helps!

There are 3 or 4 screws under the front lip; then the unit hinges upward. Turn off the power first! Once opened you can safaly remove the burners and replace toe top. hope this helps!
