In these hard times it's hard to remodel a well needed room in the house, however we were able to find a brand new electric stove that was worth $600.00 but was on clearance for $150.00 because it was missing the knobs. Thankfully a good friend recommended that I look through your website and I found the knobs for under $50.00. Thanks to partselect I was able to get the electric countertop stove I wanted and saved hundreds of dollars !!!! Thanks partselect.

Removed glass top from stove by taking out hex screws which secured glass top to stove frame. There are two phillips head screws inside the exhaust as well. Removed two phillips head screws which hold the burner switch in place. With a sharpie pen I marked the color coded wires on the faulty switch. Removed wires from the faulty switch. Replaced new switch using the old switch as a guide to insure that wires were connected properly. Secured new switch and glass burner top reversing above procedure. Problem solved. Note: The white dot on the control knob did not line up properly with the off position. Black out white dot and make a new one in the proper spot on the knob.

even though other websites had the same part for considerably less

indicator ring worked intermittently, no heat

raising the cook top on to 2x2s, one on each end, allowed me to remove the 9 sheet metal screws that keep the glass top fastened to the box containing all of the heating elements and controls. After removing the control knobs and the glass top, everything was clearly visible. Removing the four screws that hold the control box frame in place allowed me to turn the switches upside down and photograph the placement of all of the wires on the pins. I then transferred the wires from the old switch to what I thought were the corresponding pins on the new switch(the replacement switch has more pins, and they are not located in exactly the same spots as the old switch). When I turned the power back on, the switch turned the burners on, I had heat but the indicator lights didn't work. I turned the breakers back off and rewired according to a previous commentors wiring directions(his model was not exactly the same as mine), the indicators worked but I was back to no heat. I called my son, who has his own commercial electric company,and he looked at my photos from before, the diagram that came with the new switch, and it took him about 15 minutes to reconnect the pins to different wires and when we turned the power back on---both indicators and heating elements worked. It was the dual switch and double indicator that made it more complex to figure out. Nice to have very smart kids.

The "so called" genuine replacement switch is made by Maytag and is different than the Jennair .The shaft coming out of the Maytag switch is flat on only one side, so the knob from the Jennair ( flat on 2 sides) didn't fit. Had to order a knob for a Maytag cooktop , but the new knob doesn't align with the temperature scale on the Jennair. I just added a small white dot on the Maytag knob to indicate proper switch position.

Read the other folks descriptions of how they pulled out the leftover parts with needle nose pliers after they figured that the new knob would not fit with those other parts still on the range top. Took the leap of faith, pulled the parts out until I got to the D knob and slid the new part right on.
