valve for turning on gas is immovable

1. Turn off power to the cooktop and turn off the gas. This is extremely critical. 2. Remove the knobs and then the covering. Beneath will be the valve part you need to change. 3. Find a way to mark where all the wires go into the piece that sits over the valve (mine was white with a blue ring in the center). You will see four wires going into it. You can photograph it, or you can use tape and a sharpie to write where everything goes on the parts themselves. It is likely that they will become disengaged at some point during your repair, so the step is crucial. 4. Lift off the piece on top of the valve (the valve goes through the blue hole in the center of the white piece). Don't be afraid to give it a tug, as it can be slightly stuck. 5. Find a way to get underneath the large circular plate (mine was gold colored) beneath the valve in order to remove any screws that are holding the valve in place unseen below the surface. 5. Now back above the surface: disconnect the gas valve attached to the valve. 6. Switch out the valve to the new one and reverse these steps to install it. ****7. If you are unable to get beneath the plate where the valve is attached on the underside, no worries. Take the new valve and carefully unscrew the top two screws (need a special tool from a hardware store) and similarly take off the screws on top of the broken valve. Be very careful to remove the top of the old valve slowly enough to see exactly how the inside pieces have to be put together. Essentially, you will find a spring and a small ring with three notches. The small part of the spring goes on the bottom, the larger part of the spring faces upward, and on top of that goes the ring with the three notches aligned in a certain way that's very important so that when you put it back together not only will the valve depress properly but you will be able to change the fire from low to medium to high. Make sure you can depress the valve a little bit, if not you have to readjust the ring until it's in the proper position. 8. Turn on gas and power to be sure it works. 9. Close unit. ***Note: if any of your parts accidentally dropinto the opening, use a magnetized srcrewdriver to retrieve them.

The new Maytag knobs did not depress the half-round metal post and therefore did not allow the knobs to turn.

Inside the knob, I placed a dab of CA glue on the small plastic projection , which was designed to press against the metal post, but was just shy of it. By thus building it up the knobs function perfectly.

The 15-year-old Jen-Air stove started smelling really bad. I thought it was a dead animal stuck in the exhaust tube which runs under the floor to the outside. I flushed it out with clorine bleach, but it was still bad. It turned out to the be the grease filter. I washed it every week in the diswasher, but it just was not enough to get it clean enough. Finally, the grease went rancid and smelled really bad. This "repair" took about 30 seconds.

Flip the breaker. Lift off the fan center grate. Remove two screws located on back of the burner dials housing. Lift the back of the housing, then pull this gently away from the front to unhook the front. Turn this over, locate the switch. Pull the three electrical plug connections from the switch plastic housing, remembering their locations. Back off the two nuts holding the switch to the underneath side of the dials housing.

So very easy!!!! I'm a 70 year old grandmother with a small socket set - and that's all I needed! Removed one small screw, removed old burner, popped new burner in, replaced one screw, and back in business! Placed order, received it in 2 days, fixed burner. So much faster than calling a repairman!

The filter came and it was bent out of shape on 2 sides. My husband carefully tried to bend it back into shape. It is very flimsy and is not made as well as the one that was being used that was probably several years old. I did not want the hassel of returning the filter and trying to get a new one sent.

The stovetop gas regulator kept clicking in off position.

The spare part came within two days after I place the order on line. I drew a simple wire diagram of the faulty switch-regulator. Shut off the power to the stovetop, before removing the four terminals on the faulty switch-regulator. I pushed the old regulator up from the center pin and replaced it with the new regulator. The next step was to reinstall the four wire terminals using my wire diagram. Final step was to turn the power back to the stovetop and test the new switch-regulator.

It is so easy. Once I found the right size of filter from the website, I ordered it right away. It came in 3 days and I just need to take out the old one and insert the new one. No instruction is necessary. By the way, the price of the filter is one third of that from Jenn-air.
