Broke both crimp on washers. Drilled two appropriate holes in a dowell rod, used these holes to hold the new crimp on washers. Then drove the washers onto the switch's built in pegs.

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.

Unfortunately, the part that snap and lock into place are welded about half inch incorrect. Although it works, it does not fit comfortably.

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult

First the power to the cooktop was turned off. Two screws were removed to be able to lift the fan switch holder. The old switch was removed easly because it fell apart. The nuts holding the part in broke as they were removed so they could not be reused. The new switch was put in place however the nuts were too small. I don't know what they were supposed to fit but not these screws. The part was super glued in place. It works perfectly.

Exhaust vent fan would not start

Removed cover, disconnected 2 wires, attempted to remove push nuts with nutdriver, screw driver, and pliers to no avail. Cut off metal bracket with diagonal cutters, then cut off push nuts with diagonal cutters. Push nuts with kit would not fit the threaded posts. Found washers and regular nuts to attach the switch. Replaced the 2 spades on the wires (both were burnt) and shrink wrapped both spades. Pushed on the spades and reattached the cover to the cooktop.

Removed old filter, dropped in the new one.

This was a no-brainer: old filter out, new filter in. In addition to replacing an old, greasy filter, I found that the exhaust fan now draws cooking fumes much more efficiently. So why did I wait the 6 years since we moved into this house to do this???

FAN SWITCH POPPED/BROKE THROUGH THE HOUSING.,

  • Customer: Bill from Dayton NV
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins

OK, HOWEVER, FROM WHAT I READ ON THE INTERNET THOSE WHO WROTE DOWN THEIR ADVICE AND EXPERIENCE REGARDING THIS PARTICULAR PART, EXPLAINED THAT THE PUSH NUTS WERE TOO SMALL TO ACCOMODATE THE STUDS. I TOO HAD THE SAME PROBLEM, AND THEREFORE HAD TO GET OTHER ONES AT THE LOCAL HARDWARE STORE. APPARENTLY THIS IS INHERENTLY A COMMMON PROBLEM. YOU NEED TO PROVIDE PUSH NUTS WITH A SLIGHTLY LARGER DIAMETER, SO THEY CAN BE PUSHED DOWN THE STUDS/PEGS.

All of stove top parts grungy/peeling/burnt out

  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set

Replaced all 4 burners, grates, pans, middle grate and fan/light switch. No real "repair" except for the switch, which has two phillips screws to remove the little panel the switch is enclosed in. The fasteners holding the switch TO this panel were VERY difficult to remove, you have to destroy them to get them off! Once that is done, removed the wires from old broken switch, placed them on new switch (now attached to the panel) placed panel back in to position, replaced the two screws and DONE! It was all quite easy and the stove looks brand new now.

After reading the other do-it yourselfers I knew it wasn't going to be an easy task. However, when I received my new switch I saw that the hook up and installation would be a snap. My only problem was removal of the old lock washers so I cut them off with my tin snips and once the new switch was attached to the plate I used a socket on the end of a three inch extension. I placed the socket over the new washer and gently tapped on the end of the extention until the washer was seated. It took about two or three taps on each washer and I was finished. Everything went pretty well. Total time to install was about ten minutes.
