1st-turned off power to stove top, then removed 2 screws to loosen the control panel. 2nd- I removed the shorted infinite switch by using a pliers to loosen the nut holding the burner in place, undid the electrical connections (noting where each was attached to the old control) and reattached them to the new control. Then I undid the nut holding each of the other 3 burner controls, detached the wires to the old fan switch, reattached the wires to the new fan switch, i removed the red idiot lights (by moving them sideways) from the escut kit. I then reattached everything to the new plate, secured the panel to the stove top, turned the juice on, And it worked as it should, and the new plate made the stove top appear almost new. 30 minutes.
-turned off power to stove-lift off grill cover to downdraft-remove 2 screws -cut retaining clips with wire cutters-remove old switch-replace with new switch and push on new retaining clips-remove and replace wires-replace covers-turn power back on
Truned off power at circuit breaker box. Removed two screws to access the control panel wiring. Removed several connections to allow to pull wiring harness out for access. Removed lock nuts with combination of needle nose pliers and box wrenches. (it was difficult to find a size fit since nuts were distorted. Pulled old switch out. Inserted new one and new lock nuts. Reconnected loose wires and replaced housing. Turned on power and tested. All was well.
Our newly wed daughter's 1st house has a nice Jenn air range under all the crud! But the fan did not work. 5 min on your web site and I had the part ordered. Couple of days ad 2 screws later , no problem range works like new. If we ever need anything else I'll be back
First turn the power to the cooktop/fan switch panel off. Next remove the knobs used to adjust the temp of the cooking burners. Next remove the vent grill cover of the cooktop. Remove the two screws on the end of the box which houses the fan switch and burner controls. Slide box back and lift the box up. This exposes the fan swithch and burner control wiring. Remove the two wires connected to the fan switch. Remove the two self-locking washers from the two posts which hold the fan switch in place. A screwdriver works well to pry these off. Slide the fan switch assembly out. Slide the new fan switch in place over the two posts (one on each end) to align the switch. Put the self-locking washers which are packaged with the new fan switch on the posts. These can be difficult and a deep-set socket which is slightly smaller that the washers can be used to push them on. Next put the wires to the fan switch assembly on. At this point I temporarily turned the power on to test the fan switch, being careful not to touch any of the wires. If the fan operates properly, turn the power back off. Then replace the box which holds the fan switch and burner controls. Replace the two screws which hold the box in place. Replace the vent grill cover and the temp control knob tops. Turn on the power.
The downdraft fan was not running, and there was a terrible smell. I jiggled the rocker switch and the fan ran again, then another arc and the breaker popped, so there was no more power to the unit. I opened the panel under the stove to get at the schematic to get a partnumber. Then I opened the switch cluster using a screwdriver,revealing a black burnt switch, I pulled the terminals off with a plier, then used the nut driver to remove the switch. I ordered a new switch but had to settle for a Maytag. This switch looked close enough to the original. When I got the new part I only had to file the mounting holes a little bit. Switch went in nice and terminals back, closed the cluster, braker back on, and voila the rocker switch turns the fan on/off again. What took me some time was to get the crud out that had seeped into the switch cluster. Submitted by Aedgard de Boer
The old switch had already been removed after it began to smoke, by removing two screws and removing the electrical wires. I then replaced the wires back into the new switch, replaced the two screws and all done. By the way, this was the first repair to this stove, which is well over 30 years old. Believe it or not!!! It still works like a champ and doesn't look a day over 5 years old. It pays to buy quality doesn't it? Joyce Gregory
The repair is very easy. Part Select is awesome as far as getting you to the right parts. Just remember that when you do a repair with electricity that you take the time to shut off all possible power sources. I did not and got lucky that I did not injure myself because I did not know the fan switch was also bad. This caused a direct contact with a metal part on the control switch housing while I was disassembling the stove top control. Take your time and think. Should have no problems. Norbert.
Thru the circuit braker for the unit. Removed 2 screws on the escuthion, removed the nuts holding the escuthion to the knobs, rplaced switch, escuthiuon, pilot light fixtures were defective so ordered some for overnight shipment. Pilot light fixtures were a little difficult but soon went together. Wired everthing up, screwed new estcuhion in place. Wow, looked like a new unit w/ new escuthion and knobs rather than a 20 year old unit. Thru circuit breaker on and nothing happend, no power to unit. Couldn't figure out problem for several hours. In despiration called and made a service appointment. Couple of hours later was rechecking circuit breaker because other outlers in kitchen didn't work either. Discovered I had thrown the circuit breaker for the oven rather than drop in stove unit. Tripped that circuit and ev erything worked like a champ. Cancelled service appointment and had a small "celibration".
