Fan switch broke

I unscrewed the housing unit, pulled out the 2 connectors and here is the hard part, getting the metal washers off the small posts. First I tried needle nose pliers, then I used a rubber mallet to bang it out from the top side far enough to use a reg. hammer to pull it off from the underside. Finally I got it off enough to break the washers with the needle nose pliers. Putting it back together was a breeze,took all of 5 minutes.

Exhaust fan switch broke so you couldn't turn the fan on.

I removed the screws that hold the escutcheon assembly in place and lifted it from the range top. I slipped the wire connectors from the old switch and removed the push nuts. Removing the push nuts was the most difficult part. I wedged a small screwdriver under them and made enough space to cut them off with wire cutters (DON'T CUT THE POLES THE PUSH NUTS ARE ATTACHED TO!). There may be an easier way to remove them, but I'm a rookie and don't know what the easier way would be.

I attached the wires back to the same poles on the new switch as they were positioned on the old switch and pushed on the push nuts that came with the new switch to hold it in place. There isn't much room to work with so I used a small socket from a socket wrench set to hold the new push nuts in place while I pushed them on. The push nuts I received with the new switch were really too small. I forced one on, but broke the other one. I bought another slightly larger one at my local hardware store and it worked great.

I reattached the escutcheon assembly and was back in business. Overall, it took me about 30 minutes.

CustomerRichard from Scotch Plains NJ

Jammed gas valve , bad fan switch, and corroded ignitors

Turned off the gas valve and disconected the gas line from the stove-top. Removed the stove top and disassembled the unit, to access the bad parts. While unit was disassembled we cleaned the parts which were to be reused and applied the new parts. The unit was then reassembled and reinstalled. The replacement of the gas valve required only a 1/2" wrench and screw driver, while the replacement of the ignitors required the use of an adjustable wrench. The ignitors are connected via spade connectors to an electrical device located in the electrical box at the lower center portion of the unit. Not a hard job but slightly time consuming.

CustomerMichael from Bremerton WA

Original switch was cracked, then shorted and melted.

The repair was super-easy, the hardest part was removing the old screws and switch. I slid a putty knife under the old switch and used that to pry up while I unscrewed the nuts. The new switch was a very snug fit on the two studs, which was nice, but the nuts included with the new switch were too small as-is. I could have driven a punch through to increase the diameter, but I kept my old nuts and re-used them instead.

CustomerEric from Johnston IA

Broken fan switch

Turn off the power to the appliance. Remove the two screws from the control panel. Turn the panel over leaving all wires attached. Others have complained about the difficulty in removing the old push nuts and installing the new ones – this way worked quickly and easily for me: to get the old nuts off – take an awl and wedge it between the flat part of the push nut and the plastic mounting tab of the switch body. Pull the awl upwards until it is parallel with the mounting post. The push nuts will break, use needle nose pliers to remove the broken push nuts. Pull the old switch out noting the orientation. Place the new switch in place over the mounting posts. The new push nuts are not too small, it just takes some force to get them on (a good thing, it keeps the switch in place). Easy way to get the new nuts on: take a small nut driver that is the same diameter as the new push nuts on a straight handle, and use it to force the new push nuts onto the posts. Move the wires from the old switch to the new one. Turn the panel back over, replace the two screws, restore power to the appliance. It is a 10 minute job with the right tools.

Fan switch was broke; fan would start on it's own, but not when I needed it. Grease filter was in pieces.

Be sure to turn power off; then follow the instructions on the older posts.

Replaced fan switch on jenn air stove top

Very easy repair. Disconnected the old fan switch, replaced with new one...The only problem with the new one is the round nuts that come with the new switch are not big enough to fit around the fixed posts on the stove...The solution...I saved the old ones.....

Fan switch broken

No problem, except the holes in the clips to hold the switch in were so small that the clips would not go over the pegs.
The solution - use supper glue.

CustomerJohn from Henderson NV

Fan switch split and would no longer operate

I first removd the 2 screws that hold the base plate in place on the stove top. this allowed me to access the fan switch. I removed the old fan switch using a dike cutter to remove the old pal nuts keeping the old fan switch in place.

I then put the new fan switch in place and added the pal nuts using a small socket and hand held driver to push the pal nuts onto the nut shaft.

Generally, a pretty easy repair job that I ws able to complete myself and in doing so, probably saved upwards of $125. - $150.

CustomerJules from St Louis MO

Fan switch was shot

Easily removed the switch housing. After that, the other experiences really helped me as the retainer rings on the old switch would not come off and I broke one of the threaded posts about a eight of an inch from the base. I pried the other one off, more carefully, with a screw driver and a vice grip pliers . I was already to use the "super glue" solution when I luckily found an old nut that fit the one remaining threaded post.

Replacing faulty fan switch

Disable cicuit! remove 2 screws on control housing, lift housing. Remove retaining washers from mounting posts (a trifle difficult, but drill into them with an 1/8" bit...they'll break off enough to grab with needlenose pliers). Mount & wire new switch. The replacement retaining washers are too small...hold them in visegrips & ream the hole with a larger drill bit. Place washer in a magnetic hex drive bit, align over post & tap with hammer to start them, then use a small socket to tap them home. Screw down control housing. Enable circuit...voila!

Switch was broken

If you are buying online, i'm sure you know to remove atleast 2 screws! and fit them back. It’s very easy to fix it. Only thing that took time out of the 15 minutes is to push the metallic push nuts! But it was interesting to do that. Partsselect.com is really a good site
