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.

Inside the knob, I placed a dab of CA glue on the small plastic projection , which was designed to press against the metal post, but was just shy of it. By thus building it up the knobs function perfectly.

The spare part came within two days after I place the order on line. I drew a simple wire diagram of the faulty switch-regulator. Shut off the power to the stovetop, before removing the four terminals on the faulty switch-regulator. I pushed the old regulator up from the center pin and replaced it with the new regulator. The next step was to reinstall the four wire terminals using my wire diagram. Final step was to turn the power back to the stovetop and test the new switch-regulator.

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.
