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!

Turned off breaker for range. Removed 4 phillips screws on control panel, tipped it forward and rested it on top of partially open oven door. Removed knob and nut on old switch. Moved wires, one at a time from old to new switch. Put new switch in place, tightened nut and pushed on knob. Put control panel back in place and installed 4 screws... piece of cake.

The filter came and it was bent out of shape on 2 sides. My husband carefully tried to bend it back into shape. It is very flimsy and is not made as well as the one that was being used that was probably several years old. I did not want the hassel of returning the filter and trying to get a new one sent.

It is so easy. Once I found the right size of filter from the website, I ordered it right away. It came in 3 days and I just need to take out the old one and insert the new one. No instruction is necessary. By the way, the price of the filter is one third of that from Jenn-air.

Pulled old knobs off, pressed new ones on. Probably well under a minute for 6 knobs. Anyone with the IQ of a horseradish could have done it. But what was really great was the help and personality of the agent at the other end of the phone. Shipping was as promised, and the entire experience was delightful!

Ordering and installing was easy. The hardest part was getting the exact match to 20 yr. old appliance knobs. First one I ordered had wrong shaft hole, but it matched perfectly in design. Decided to reorder and just replace all four with matching new-style knobs and the correct shaft hole. Yeah. Looks great and REALLY easy to install.
