Wimpy Induction Cooktop-- Wiring Problem??
I have a circa 2002 Jenn-Air smooth 30-inch cooktop that has 2 induction burners and 2 regular electric ones. The induction burners have never provided much heat; as a consequence we use the regular burners almost all the time. The induction is only good for low heat like eggs or simmering. We have induction cookware.
The cooktop and Jenn-Air double electric ovens share two joined 40 amp circuits that can only be switched in tandem.
Is it possible I have a wiring problem here? Do I have enough amperage for these appliances? I have heard that an induction cooktop needs 40 amps. I would like to know if I have an electrical problem or just a bad appliance.
