Fan Switch housing broke and button fell down

  • Customer: Duraid from Farmington Hills MI
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Time to Complete: 15 - 30 mins
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Socket set

Extremely easy.
First, I turned powr off to appliance at electric panel (don't trust switches).
Next, I removed the 2 screws that held the panel cover, removed the dials, and removed 2 screws at each one (total eight) - this requrid a hex screw driver bit, which I had in my handy set.
I proceeded to loosen the panel, and disconnect the wires attached to the old switch (this may be tricky - mine came off easy, but did require care as to not to strip the wire from the clamp).
Once the old switch was removed and the plastic housing unscrewed, I attached the new fan assembly, and connected the wires, and reinstalled everything back in the same order.
(This is a good time to clean all the grease and dirt that has collected thru the years-before you put everything back).
Turned the power back on, and everything worked like before.
I figured I saved about 4 hours worth of labor (4x$50=$200 / minimum) plus any inflated part price I would have paid for a $20 part from PartSelect! It felt good!

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.

removed two screws under fan cover at end of stove knobs. raised panel with knobs up and removed two nuts that held fan switch housing. installed new switch and moved power connections to new fan. (note: Killed power to range top prior to any repair action)

The old switch became brittle with age and broke. There were two plastic cylinders that held a spring loaded bearing to operate the contact point. It became brittle because of age and it broke.

I first turned off the power to the range. The switch was housed inside a control panel in the front center part of the range. Two screws were removed and the housing was lifted forward and then off The switch was held in place by metal friction washers. Those were removed by a screwdriver and then the switch slide off the posts that they were attached to. The switch had two wires and I simply replaced the wires onto the new switch and placed the switch back onto the posts. The friction washers were pressed back over the posts to hold the switch in place and then the housing was screwed back into place.
