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.

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.

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.

This has been a wonderful cooktop and I could only hope todays quality is equally as good but after 25 yrs. I doubt it especially after looking at new dishwashers in the last couple of days. too sad. but these repairs were minor and no trouble. what amazed me most was ordering one afternoon and the parts were here the following day ! great service

My 8 inch stove top element would not heat

I first replaced the element and the receiver. This required splicing lines which was very easy. It still did not heat (even though my element indicator light was on) so I replaced the switch regulator. This took a little time because of the small space on my model. In fact, I had to replace a wire that had shorted by splicing a 3 inch section into it. When that was done, I simply re-connected the 5 wires in the original positions and reattached the cover. It works like a charm and my wife is delighted because we are hosting a family reunion/baby shower tomorrow!
