Just placed it at the filter location. Liked the ring feature on the filter for ease of removal for cleaning. My previous ones didn't have such feature. Thank you for filling my order. I bought an extra filter for the future. I'm a big user of my Jenn-Air range. I may soon be needing to replace my griddle. Will be contacting your company then.

I simply lifted off the grille in the center of the stove, pulled out the old filter and dropped the new one in. It sits at an angle (right side down, left side up) rather than slotting in to a particular spot.

Burner had no temperature control other that full on.

Our oven is at least 30 years old and the parts are not even available through the manufacture anymore. A new stove would cost well over $1000.00. Jen airr is the only down draft stove available. So the repair was much more affordable that the alturnative. So thank you to part select for providing this service. The repair was simple. This is coming from a 36 year old female who has been around electrical work, but never done any myself. My husband was out of town and I felt I could do the job. I first made sure I had another adult present. I turned off the power to the oven. I then removed the visible screws to the element plate (2 on top and 1 in lower middle). I then pulled the element out enough to get behind the plate and feel the screws that were connecting the wires to the element/ground. Again 3 total. The oven space is very small and difficult to work in. I had to do a lot by feel. Once the old element was free I just exchanged it for the new one and reversed the process, making sure all the wires were tight. I then turned the power back on. Turned the oven on, it smoked lightly for a moment and turned red hot. Over all it was extreemly simple.

Made sure the circuit breaker was off. Labeled the wires and then disconnected them. Removed the old switch.
Ordered the part using the diagram on-line, very easy to identify part and order it. Part arrived earlier than expected using standard shipping.
Reconnected wires using labels taped on the wires. Turned on the breaker and it worked.

After searching on the internet for a very long time, we were almost ready to order the screws "blind" (no picture) from Sears for almost $10.oo per screw. Then I stumbled onto this website and found exactly what I was looking for, with a detailed description AND a picture!! Not to mention a price that was two thirds less than Sears..for TWO screws. Now the oven door is secure and we are no longer on our search for the right screws.

I removed the old knob and replaced it with the new Maytag knob which worked.

I was especially pleased because another website had listed the part as unavailable, and a local parts store said they could not help me. Our range is at least 30 years old.
