First I turned off electrical power to the range by turning off the circuit breaker for the range.Then I removed the two screws that hold the switch plate to top of front of range. Then I pushed the sw plate back toward to rear of range to disengage it from the guide pin, and lifted the switch plate and switch. Turned the switch plate over and labelled the four wires to the switch. Removed the wire which were push-on. Which allowed me to remove the switch plate completely from the range. At my bench I used my Dremell with a cutting wheel to cut off the two push nuts/washers holding the switch to the switch plate. Removed the old switch and replaced it with the new one. Pushed to the new push nuts/washers provided in the kit, and re-assempled.
Shut down the power so I would not be surprised, removed the four front screws on panel. lifted burner knob panel to expose screws holding infinite switch and wires, easy replacement.Even the size of the clips would not let you place them on the wrong prongs. plugged in new brurner and cooking steaks once again. Disapointed in visa's additional "International charge" of $2.83 and then $3.83 to purchase these items, but overall they were great people to deal with.
Took off plate over the rocker plate with screwdriver. Removed old switch. 2 posts were burned off!!! Plugged in new switch. Replaced panel over top. Worked great. Best $40 dollars ever spent. Saved me over $1000.
Changing the complete front control module would not have been a hard job but the two screws under the left stove knob would not release and the hex wrench stipped the bolt. I was able to undo both right screws on the right knob, releasing the knob control and the right bracket that holds the center control module. Being careful I pried the two left side tabes on the left bracket allowing me to slide the control moduleout. I replaced the module and reversed my steps. The top switch that controls the downdraft and oven light was simple. Remove the two screws that holds the bracket housing the switch. Remove the two hold down compression nuts by prying them up. hold broken switch next to new one and attach the four wires. Replace switch, tried to replace the two compression nuts and after a half hour figure out they are too small. Spen another half hour in assorted nut drawer until I found two small nuts and luckily was able to force thread tham on. I can't believe I saved at least $200.00 in labor doing the repair myself. (and the stove works). I'll be doing my own repairs myself from now on. (Okay, within reason)
- the fan/light switch was still functioning, but it fell into the cavity underneath, after years of use, heat and grease caused it to weaken.- 4 wires came off the old switch, and went on the new one with ease.- the only complication was in getting the clips off of the old ones, and getting the new clips onto the new one. otherwise, a piece of cake.
I took the control panel loose and dropped it down . Then removed wires one at a time and changed out the oven control switch. You better not start pulling all the wires off unless you can read a wireing diagram. I changed the rocker switch while panel was dropped down.
After accessing the switch and removing the wires(four wires as the rocker switch operates both fan and oven light) I attached the wires to the new switch. However , I was unable to mount the switch in place as I could not get the spring - clip type of fasteners to slip on.Fortunately, there was space to drill a hole on each side of the switch and I used brass machine screwsand nuts to hold the switch. The round-head screw tops show on top of the stove, but at least the new switch is in place and operating.
First, cut power to the range at the breaker box. I removed the jenn aire vent grill; removed two phillips head screws holding the switch bracket assembly and removed the switch assembly. After making a diagram of wiring, removed 4 bayonet type connectors. Next carefully remove the pushon nuts and save. Remove defective switch and discard. Install new switch on the two metal prongs over the black metal bracket making sure to orient correctly - use wire diagram and compare size of bayonet lugs for proper orientation. Push on nuts. Reconnect four wire bayonets; place switch assembly in proper position. insert and tighten the two phillips head screws that hold the assembly in place; replace vent grill and turn on power at breaker box.Only problem was that new pushon nuts were too small for the jennaire metal prongs. Good thing i saved the old nuts!!
Installing the new switch was EASY. However, removing the old switch was very difficult due to the nuts holding the switch in place being designed as clamps not threaded screws and nuts.
The job was easier than I thought it would be. Turned off power at breaker first! Used phillips screwdriver to remove 2 fairly tight screws located on the vent side of the switch mounting plate. Flipped over plate and wrote down the 4 spade tip wire colors and location on switch. Removed the wires from the switch and removed the switch by prying off the locking washer with a sharpened/filed thin putty knife to get under it and then a flat blade screwdriver to finish removing it. Put the new switch in, hooked up the spade tip wires, mounted the plate back on and turned on the power. Worked great and I even impressed my Wife!
Cut power!Removed old switch.Only problem was new switch had shifted the four 'spade' connectiors on back so when I was done fan and light switch was crossed.Everything PartSelect had on their site was perfectly correct.REALLY appreciated the way PartsSelect handled everything, I will be back for further help on other things.
Disconnected power from the stove. First I removed the down draft vent cover on stove top, then the two screws that held the switch plate in place, then used a wood chisel to pry the switch housing retaining washers off. Removed the remains of the old switch, Installed new switch, attached wires, and reinstalled switch plate. Placed vent cover on stove top and reconnected power.
Removed top plate, disconnected old switch... Had to go to hardware store to get different push washers - the ones supplied with the part were too small. connected switch... tested connections and replaced top plate.
removing the vent grid on top, by lifting off, then taking out the filter screen. removed the 2 screws on the back of the switchplate, then slide it back. made a drawing of the color wires and which way the switch faces... (it matters)I took off the the old press-nuts by just breaking them with needle nose pliers. removed the old switch, fitted the new one (paying attention to where the little prongs and big prongs were on the old switch. used the nut-driver to press on the new nuts that came with the switch, and hooked back up the wires, and put it back.
