I had tried several other "universal" brands from the home improvement center but nothing worked with my Jen-Aire. I finally ordered from PartSelect and they fit perfectly! My range-top looks brand new and finding and ordering the correct parts was amazingly easy. Thanks!

Fed-Ex delivered the package and within 10 min I had open the package, removed the old knobs and installed the new ones, My wife was very impressed with the ease of the transactionl.

Knobs sent fit the shafts, but due to molded internal stop wouldn't seat. Had to drill out the stop, and also file down the shafts a bit for knobs to seat acceptably closer to stove-top.

Pulled out the old one-couldn't find it ANYWHERE that was a comparable match except for partselect. shut off breaker to oven-put in the new one-hard to reach in due to limited space and hard to see due to sticking your head in an oven.used a mirror/flashlight to see behind element to unscrew and screw it back in.Other than space restriction and light-pretty easy. Works great! Thanks for HAVING the part!! :)

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. Then I pulled the element out about 2 inches & disconnected the two wires, Then I removed the ground wire. I then wired in the new element ( this was the only tough part of the process, because I had a very tight space to work in- less than 2 inches.

I originally ordered the knobs that appeared to be an exact match for the ones on the stove top (Part # PS1515077). However those knobs are designed to fit on D post stems. I finally ordered PS48861 which are designed to fit double flat post stems which is what I have on my stove top. New parts fit perfectly. Remove old knobs put new ones on. Total repair time less than one minute. Part Select was great about getting the original parts and replacement to me quickly.

I turned off the power first. Then I removed the element by taking out the three screws. The oven was quite old so getting the screws out took a little extra effort. Installation of the new element went easier. I was pleased with how soon the part arrived after I ordered it.
