    This cook top we want to install requires 120v / 20Amps. Can I use the outlet that is already there which is using 12-2 Romex wire that has 20amp rating. Is there any risk of this wire heating up / catching fire when we use this cook top? Can the cook top draw >20amps, hence cause any...

    Good morning appliance gurus! I recently replaced my electric cooktop. Unfortunately, all the cooktops I could find that covered the hole were too big to fit in the hole. I settled on this model, and reinforced the inside of the hole with 1x3s. The cooktop is well supported and snug, but...

    I have a new GE Profile 30" PGP953 gas cooktop. I have run a new gas line from my 3/4 black iron into a 3/4 valve and decreased into 1/2 csst to the cooktop area. I have the pressure regulator for the cooktop. My 1/2 csst male goes into the regulator perfectly, but the regulator decreases to...

    So believe it or not I do actually try to search for answers before making a post but there really isn't much out there on this subject, so I could use some help. We are replacing a 30" coil cooktop with downdraft vent, so the venting is already in place. The vent connection is round (I read...

    Hello all, I was just told by my wife that the igniter for one of the four burners on our Jenn Air gas cooktop "fell through" the hole that it used to be in. So, I turned off the gas, unplugged the cooktop, then took off the ceramic cap above the burner. I was going to unscrew the burner to...

    Hi, My Jenn-Air downdraft cooktop model# CVG2420W seem to have mind of it's own for igniter spark. Sometime it won't spark at all, some time it will keep sparking even though it's already lit. Sometime issue is with only one burner and otheretime none of the burner igniter-spark work...

    the instruction manual i got from the whirlpool site was kindof ambiguous between 3 and 4 wire cable. it included instruction for both. i understand i can't go wrong with 8/3 cable but 8/2 would certainly be cheaper. so my question is: do most cooktops require 240/120 and two hots, meaning...

    Hi guys! I have purchased a 2005 Induction/Gas cooktop from a friend. According to her, the fan and induction hobs were not working, only the gas. There were no manuals available so I went ahead and opened the unit. I discovered that the copper on the motherboard right at the power supply...

    Hello, I am replacing my cooktop. My question is with the wiring. The wall jb has two balck wires and a bare ground in it. The new cooktop has a black read and green wires. The two black wires in the jb are both hot. Do I just connect the black to black, and red to black, and green to bare...

    I'm planning to install a new cooktop, and the instructions say to connect a 40-amp circuit fused on both sides of the line. What does "fused on both sides of the line" mean? I understand that I need a separate circuit, 4 or 3-wire (I'll use 4), 8-gauge wire and 40 amp breaker. The oven that...

    We have a gas cooktop (with electric start) installed in a pennisula. The gas line runs through the floor, in the cabinet below. (i imagine this is standard) but we have yet to install a dedicated (or semi dedicated) outlet. it seems to me that it would go inside the cooktops base cabinet. But...

    Hi Folks, House built in 1994, Oregon. I took out a Jennair electric cook top with down draft and am installing a Fagor Induction unit. My electric line seems the right match for the demand, dual pole 40 amp circuit. The existing line is 4 wire. Two black, one gray and one uninsulated bare...

    Hi, I am in the process of remodeling my kitchen. The current kitchen has the typical oven/stove combination powered by a 3-prong plug on the floor. It is connected to #6 Aluminum wire (2-wire, Black, White and Bare). It is governed by a 50-AMP 220V breaker. I have no free slots in the...

    I have 4 wires coming from the cooktop (KECC508RPB04) - black, red, white and green. I have 3 types of wires in the wall. Black, red, and a bare (not copper) twisted wire. I am guessing that the wall oven (on another wall) is on the same circuit since I have 2 wires of each color in the box...

    I am confused. We had a frestanding electric range in our kitchen and when we cahnged the counter top to granite we switched to a Cooktop and an under counter oven and broiler. The range was on a 240 volt 40 amp circuit breaker with #8 three wire. No ground just red, black and a white...
