Replacing the switch was very easy. First I unplugged the range to be sure there would be no electrical power to the switch. Then I removed four screws to remove the switch cover plate (located above the oven door). I disconnected the wires from the pin connectors on the broken switch, then removed the switch by removing one hex nut. The new switch was installed by reversing the removal procedure. Took about 15 minutes total time.

It was worth the money for that little screw, since I didn't have to run all over trying to find the right one.

I actually bought these for a friend. He cooks for everyone that shows up. I haven't seen the new grates in action yet. Will have to show up with some meat and test them out.

This down draft filter was just what I was looking for. The big box stores (Home Depot and Lowe's) do not carry this size filter. Thanks,

The grease filter was 20+ yrs old and the mesh was falling of the frame. I was very pleased to find this replacement filter (the first filter I received was damaged....placed a call to PartSelect and have a new one the next day). Can't beat service like that!! Thank you, June Patten

After a long time being without a working stovetop-an electrician friend said we needed to change a switch-it was ordered and came very quickly and installed-then it was determined that we needed a switch for the other side of the stovetop-I ordered it and got it the next day! It was a joy cooking thanksgiving dinner on a stove that worked-and I have a new friend that is interested in seeing me on a more regular basis. I know if I needed any kind of parts, I would check with partselect first ;)

I removed the protective grid over the filter and fan, turned the clip that held the filter in place and removed it. I placed the new intact filter for my antiquated Jenn-aire in its place, replaced the protective grid, and am happily continuing to cook on my functional cook top.Thank you.

Front burner elements had no temp control & only heated on full blast

I used process of elimination to figure out the issue with my 28 year old Jenn-Air cooktop. Issue: One day while cooking there was a loud pop & from then the front burner no longer had any temp control & only heated to full blast plus. Steps to fix: 1) Replaced the surface burner elements PS2195246 - this didn't fix the issue but they look nicer now. This was a simple plug in - no tools needed. 2) Replaced the grill side with a 2 burner plug in part PS1941381. Also simple plug in with no tools required. This didn't fix the isssue & I found that the front burner on the new unit also had no temp control. 3) Replaced the Surface Burner Receptacles for the 2 original burners PS1570190. This required turning off the breaker, removing the cooktop by unscrewing all the little screws & then cutting the old connections with wire cutters and wiring the new parts in with wire nuts & electrical tape. It took maybe half an hour but did not fix the issue. 4) Replaced the Surface Unit Infinite Switch Kit PS2076107 for the front 2 burners. Removed the screws just for the center control panel (after turning off the breaker) then took a picture of the wire configuration & removed the old parts by pulling (hard) at the connections until they unplugged. Put the new part in with the same wire placement. This finally fixed the issue & we now have 4 working burners for the first time in the >1 year that we have lived in this house.
