The Model number could no longer be read clearly on the stove electric grill with a down draft vent system, so all I had was the size and looks of the old grease/air filter. I was very happy to come across Parts Select by way of an amazon.com search. Their web site's design and the parts pictures with detailed descriptions made it easy to find exactly what I needed. The grease filter fit perfectly in no time. I have successfully used my cooking grill again.

Rheostat temperature controller failed. No heat at ring.

Turned off power at breaker. Removed screws holding control knobs in position. Removed knob and unscrewed nut holding switch in place. Noted wire positions and undid connections. Connected wires to new unit. Replaced nut and screws and control knob. Restored power and checked operation. You can do this. Don't call an electrician.

Simply pull off old knobs and replace with the new parts. Didn't think I was going to find replacement parts. The equipment is actually over 25 yrs old. Thanks for partselect.

I lifted off the old knobs, pushed on the new. Easy and the cooktop looks brand new!

Element wouldn't regulate; always on high

We turned off the breaker and removed the screws holding the control panel in place. They are behind in the exhaust area.

The control unit was lifted up to reveal all of the wires and the switches. Using pliers I pulled off the connectors keeping up with which wire was from which connector. The switch then dropped out and the new one went in and wires were reconnected.

It was not difficult. Only challenges were that it was very dense and hard to get at the wires and you had to be careful to keep up with the wire locations.

Well worth the time...I can do something other than boil water on that burner!!

Burners were not regulating and they were just going on high

I am not really handy. When the repair man came and gave me a price of $220 to repair two infinite switches, I looked up the cost of the switch and saw that it was easy to do...and it was! I saved $140 for doing it myself (no help from my husband).

First I turned off the power, unscrewed two screws and took the knob panel off. Wrote down the colored wires and then pulled them off the infinite switch (some needed pliers) and then i just put the wires back on the new switch...done...it works!

The 15-year-old Jen-Air stove started smelling really bad. I thought it was a dead animal stuck in the exhaust tube which runs under the floor to the outside. I flushed it out with clorine bleach, but it was still bad. It turned out to the be the grease filter. I washed it every week in the diswasher, but it just was not enough to get it clean enough. Finally, the grease went rancid and smelled really bad. This "repair" took about 30 seconds.

Pulled off old knob, then pressed on the new one.
It was very easy, and the part was the correct one.

I pulled off the other 3 old knobs. Pushed on the new ones, which pushed on hard, but work. They stick out farther than the originals. They look a little different, but only to me. No one else would notice.
The main part is, it works. A little spenty for my taste, but did not know where else to go and they arrived very quick.

surface unit infinite switch needed replaced. The knobs and lens were cosmetic.

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the wires and replaced the connections in sequence. It was easy. BUT, be sure the circuit breaker is disconnected if you want to enjoy the fruits of your labor. I figure I saved about $1100 by not having to buy a new stove top and I now have an almost new one. The cook appreciates it too.
