Wiring a Jen-air cooktop
I purchased a JenAir ceramic cooktop with downdraft model# JED8430BDB to replace an old Frididare cooktop with coil burners. The old one was wired black to black, red to white and green to ground. The new one has 4 wires - black, white, red and green. I called JenAir directly but the guy wouldn't answer my question. He just said "you need to contact a qualified electrician". I'm certain I'm not the only person trying to save a buck by doing this myself. I also had a question about rotating the downdraft and he wouldn't answer that either. I'm not happy with my 1st and possibly last experience with JenAir. Can anyone help?
