New front burners fit well, but back ones had just enough variance in tne angle of the gas-supply tube that it would not fit the mounting bracket holding both burners in place. I had to grind a small flange off of the bracket so the gas tube would clear. Once that was done the burners worked well.

The issue: the burners were abused by the previous tenant, the burnt grease was clearly visible. They would hardly ignite and the smell of gas was always present.The remedy: new burners. They were hard to find, I was not completely sure about to stove model (it could be quite a search to find the right ones). There is a front burner and a back one. I was not sure from the diagram about the back one, so I called Partselect and someone answered the call right-away. The burners arrived a few days later, and they were the correct ones. The burners are not Jenn-air specific, it looks like several brand names use the same ones. The installation was extremely easy, a few hex screws. The stove is like new. I highly recommend Partselect.

I removed the protective grid over the filter and fan, turned the clip that held the filter in place and removed it. I placed the new intact filter for my antiquated Jenn-aire in its place, replaced the protective grid, and am happily continuing to cook on my functional cook top.Thank you.

This range is about 17 years old and the igniter on the left set of burners had failed in the first month of use. A warranty repairman came, made a big mess, marred the adjacent counter top, spent a lot of time badmouthing Jenn-Air and left without fixing the problem. We have been manually lighting these burners all this time. Now that I am retired, I have set about repairing everything I can get my hands on just to have things to do. I always did this when I was young but got too busy with career and family. One big help is doing things now is you can Google a problem, find parts and instructions how to make the repair which is much easier than all the research you used to have to do. This repair is easy but time consuming due to all the screws that you have to remove to get to the igniter and the controller in the back. Since one side worked I was confident that the controller was good but the problem was only the igniter on the left side. This range is a dual fuel unit and has a downdraft connection so sliding it out from the wall is also time consuming. First pull the breaker at the electric panel. Remove the bottom plate and disconnect the flexible downdraft connection. Hopefully, you have enough flexible gas line so you can slide stove out to reach the back without having to shut off the gas and removing the connection. Next you remove the grills and burners. Then you have to remove all the screws connecting the top of the stove. There are nuts and washers that surround the gas jets that you can remove to partially lift the drip pan so you can unscrew the old igniter and install the new one. Next remove the back and see where the igniter control is located. Disconnect the old wire, install the new wire in the guides and insert in the controller. At this point all you need to do is put everything back where it was. This does not take a lot of know-how just time and patience. It makes you wonder why an "expert" could not have done this easily.

After struggling with getting the tower off the rack. We needed to look up how to install on the Internet. It amounted to just turning it clockwise until it locked in place. I felt silly as it was easy once I knew what to do. Instructions in box would have been helpful.
