The original equipment fan switch failed

The part we received from your supply store, a Maytag part, was in no way a direct replacement for the original Jenn-Air switch. I had to shave material carefully off all sides of the supplied switch, including the plastic flanges that were to hold the switch in place. Consequently, there was nothing left to hold the shaved-down switch in the opening. I had to rig two pieces of material to attach to the back of the switch to hold the switch, roughly, in place.
So, a poorly fitting replacement part that happens to function acceptably after an hour's work.
The repair: The balance of the repair was unremarkable. I simply removed the metal plate that the control knobs are mounted on, pulled it out of the rangetop, and removed the old switch. I snipped the wires, as your instructions said, nutting off the ground wire which is not used. I used a compression tool to attach the two wires to the quick-connect connectors you supplied (many home repair folks would not have a crimp tool for this job). The rest of the time was spent reshaping the switch you sent to fit into the too-small mounting hole.
I then simply returned the switch mounting plate, fastened with screws, to the range top.

Exhaust-fan switch didn't work any more.

FIRST OPENED THE CIRCUIT BREAKER. Snipped the three wires, capped the white one with the ceramic insulating nut and crimped the spade connectors to the other two. Then CAREFULLY filed one side of the rectangular hole in the escutcheon until iwas wide enough to accept the new swich. Drew the two wires up through the hole, attached them to the switch and pushed the switch into the hole until it snapped in place. Reseated the escutcheon and reconnected the two screws. Closed the circuit breaker, pressed the switch and VOILA, on went the fan. Be careful not to let filings fall into the electrical stuff. Need crimping tool & file.
