Jenn-air glass cook top # jec9530ads upgrade problems
« on: March 30, 2020, 09:34:34 AM »

I've been challenged recently with a jenn-air glass cook top,  mod # jec9530ads. My nightmare began when the right front burner , which is a duel burner infinite switch ,went bad . To replace , whirlpool no longer makes the old/existing switch ,but an upgraded infinite switch , which only comes in a kit ( whirlpool kit #10823734) along with a new harness and heating element! ..... this where my nightmare began.  I don't know what whirlpool was thinking when they made this kit , but NOTHING matches up ! I had to predrill screw holes in the bottom plate to secure the infinite switch , harness was completely different , vague short instructions,and a completely different element which has no epic sensor, or even a hole for one !!!...in the instructions , it says to reuse old epic sensor if the wiring connection block doesn't match to new harness (which it dont)....nothing in this kit makes any sense (or at least the instructions dont). Trying desperately to see if anyone has had this same problem with this model , or this kit , and how they remedied this Frankenstein problem ! :'( :'( :tickedoff: :tickedoff: never in my 15 years of repair have I come across such botched confusion !

customer had his electrician make the swap to new kit  he did a good job  but the epic sensor would not plug in  so they used the old one.
had to buy a complete new burner as they dot appear to sell just the epic sensor  the one they transferred to the new element was open and they threw out the new epic sensor  spec for the epic is 1100 ohms  new one tested 1080.
