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.

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.

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.

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.

The original grease filter was damaged in our dishwasher (it is quite fragile) and needed to be replaced.

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.
