I just pulled off the old knob and pushed on the new knob. My JENN-AIR Oven is 20 years old. The new knob is a different style and it doesn't fit snug against the oven. But it works and I can set the oven to Bake or Broil or clean and know I'm in the right place. I really like this oven and hope it will last another 20 years.

Just took them out of the package removed the old ones and attached the new ones. I cut out a picture of the knob when the accident occurred, who would guess cleaning the knobs would erase the numbers, and taped the picture above the knob until the new ones arrived. thank you for keeping the old knobs in stock,

turned off power, removed two screws mounting the old element, cut wires, and removed old element, crimped new stake connectors onto existing wiring, attached stake connectors to new element, installed element with two new screws provided, turned power back on.
It would be easier to just slip the two stake connectors off and reinstall on the new element but I elected to install new connectors because the oven was over ten years old and one seemed loose.

The replacement switch was slightly larger than the old one so it would not go through the hole in the front panel so I had to get a reaming tool and enlarge the hole just a little for the switch to go through. It was still an easy repair as I had the proper tool.
