cook top module would not heat.

The contact spades were burned from 10+ years of use and the cook top module was worn. I disassembled the module, taped the top to protect the creamic cook top, sanded the metal and spray painted to restore the original white finish. On the bottom half I replaced one missing pop rivet and cleaned and spray painted the bottom to restore to the original black. When the contact spades arrived, I replaced the contact spades and reassembled the module. It now works and looks like it did when it was new.

The outer glass panel of the interior glass assembly shattered when the oven was preheated to 400 deg.

We made the mistake of taking the door apart before we received the replacement parts. After waiting several days, which was fine, the parts arrived. Then we had to figure out how it went back together. My wife and I did it and enjoyed working on it. However....after getting it partly reassembled, we (I) found four extra screws. We took it apart again and then put it back together. Turning the door over we found that the glass assembly had slipped. This meant that we had to take it apart again. This went on two more times LOL. Then the gasket gave us a couple of small fits as well. All in all it was a neat experience. I do suggest, unless you are experienced in appliance repair, to NOT disassemble the door until the parts arrive.

The comments from others on the website were a great help.

Thank you.

one side of cooktop did not work

  • Customer: Rebecca from Broadway NC
  • Difficulty: Really easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Screw drivers

I took out the side of the cooktop that did not work. I had to take off the bottom of the cooktop and checked where electricity was going and not going. Once I found the part that needed replacing, I went on the website, search for Jen-Air cooktops and model number. From the sketch on the website, I was able to order the part needed. I decided to get 2 in order to replace both parts at one time, just in case. The part arrived quickly and was easy to install. The most time I spent was taking the backside off the cooktop and cleaning it.

I thought, OH NO! I'll have to hunt and likely never find a replacement. I found a grate at Partselect in less than 5 minutes, phoned to reassure myself about the size and fit, the grates arrived very quickly, look and fit perfectly! Efficient, courteous fast service. It doesn't get any better than that.

Installed new fiberglass gasket and glass window

I removed about 8 screws to disassemble the door to get the gasket in. This was an easy task. On the first use of the oven, it shattered one pane of the double glass door window. I think I installed it backwards since one pane is tempered glass, I believe. I installed the new window and am heating it up now - hope it doesn't break.

Burner got excessively hotand couldn't be regulated

The hardest part was breaking the caulk seal between the range and the cabinet. An extra set of hands made the job easier, by holding the panel while I connected the switch. The switch was delivered promptly and I am very happy with Parts Select. I found the other repair stories very helpful.

Jenn-Air downdraft motor burned out

Motor (Blower Motor Kit) Part Number: PS1569907
No instructions are included in the package from PartSelect. Disassembly from the main housing was relatively simple. I found that paying VERY careful attention to how the original motor was wired and mounted would pay off in correct re-assembly, conquering motor vibration and rubbing. Most of my project time was spent cleaning the rotating blade wheel from 20 years of grease build-up. On tools, I would have appreciated the inclusion, or availability as an accessory, of a long-stem correct-size allen wrench (used in removal of the fan blade wheel.) The job went well, and probably saved me $200 in service call and labor.

broken switch

Took the (6) screws holding the top of the stove out, then removed the switch screws(2). Then lifted the top, so as I could reach and get at the switch. And then I repeated the above. It was alot easier the second time. Duh I erred the first time and replaced the wrong one and before I relized it, I opened the switch to check out. All in all. I still got satisfaction from doing it myself. Thanks Parts Select

It would have been nice if basic instructions were supplied ( eg. how to remove switch panel ) but it went rather smoothly.
First killed power the electric stove.
I then removed the screws from the bottom of the panel and then pried the top of the control panel down and then out. I copied the positioning and wire colors.Removed wires from prongs, removed the two screws, replaced old switch with new one .

Fan/Light switch worked for fan but not for light

The job was easier than I thought it would be. Turned off power at breaker first! Used phillips screwdriver to remove 2 fairly tight screws located on the vent side of the switch mounting plate. Flipped over plate and wrote down the 4 spade tip wire colors and location on switch. Removed the wires from the switch and removed the switch by prying off the locking washer with a sharpened/filed thin putty knife to get under it and then a flat blade screwdriver to finish removing it. Put the new switch in, hooked up the spade tip wires, mounted the plate back on and turned on the power. Worked great and I even impressed my Wife!

Took parts off from under the range, and replaced the motor. Then put the unit back under the stove and connected the vent.

Everything went fine. No trouble.

fan/light switch plastic bracket broken

First, cut power to the range at the breaker box. I removed the jenn aire vent grill; removed two phillips head screws holding the switch bracket assembly and removed the switch assembly. After making a diagram of wiring, removed 4 bayonet type connectors. Next carefully remove the pushon nuts and save. Remove defective switch and discard. Install new switch on the two metal prongs over the black metal bracket making sure to orient correctly - use wire diagram and compare size of bayonet lugs for proper orientation. Push on nuts. Reconnect four wire bayonets; place switch assembly in proper position. insert and tighten the two phillips head screws that hold the assembly in place; replace vent grill and turn on power at breaker box.

Only problem was that new pushon nuts were too small for the jennaire metal prongs. Good thing i saved the old nuts!!

Replace filter

Housing of fan switch broke causing the switch to be inaccessable to use

  • Customer: Gerard P from Poughkeepsie NY
  • Difficulty: Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers
  • 3 of 4 people found this instruction helpful
After accessing the switch and removing the wires(four wires as the rocker switch operates both fan and oven light) I attached the wires to the new switch. However , I was unable to mount the switch in place as I could not get the spring - clip type of fasteners to slip on.
Fortunately, there was space to drill a hole on each side of the switch and I used brass machine screws
and nuts to hold the switch. The round-head screw
tops show on top of the stove, but at least the new switch is in place and operating.

Oven door gasket frayed and worn allowing leakage.

Followed the instructions given by Paul from Mickleton, NJ. Very simple, no problem. Using two small blocks of wood to hold spring loaded hinges out while I replaced the door on the hinges was a big help. Thanks for the excellent delivery time. Great service.
