I had the same issue with the fan and searching for years I never came across another switch like it. Then I finally ordered double pole double throw rocker switch from Galco part 54-052-NTE. It is a much bigger switch, but I just hogged out the metal in the cover with a dremel and a bit that looks like a milling bit. After the hole was made large enough, I installed the switch and put back the bracket that holds the cover in place with the 2 push down tabs. I re-installed the switch but first the 2 spade connectors for the brown and white wires had to be replaced to the larger ones so that they would attach to the new switch. Now everything is operational again. You need the double pole double throw switch to isolate the 2 circuits. A SPDT won't work.

Good luck.

The original fan switch for the SEG196 (circa 1995) is a four terminal switch- two for the fan and two for the light . Note that the switch spade lugs for the red and blue wires (which when connected activate the fan) are larger than those for the white and brown wires (which when connected activate the oven light). This design presumably prevented miswiring of the switch at original assembly. Since the four terminal switch is nearly impossible to find (it was discontinued several years ago), an inexpensive fix is to replace the four wire switch with a two wire SPST toggle switch. However, this means that either the fan function or the light function can be preserved- not both. I elected to keep the fan function, and simply wired the red & blue wires to the two terminals of a heavy duty replacement SPST toggle switch. Be sure to fully insulate the remaining (in this case) white and brown wires with electrical tape or wire nuts before tucking them below the new switch. Total cost: $6.00 for switch. NOTE: TURN OFF POWER TO RANGE AT ELECTRICAL PANEL BEFORE ATTEMPTING REPAIR! fan/stove light switch broke    needs replacing - beec3807-1ba5-40e7-a010-7e26d5fca5c0.jpg

SOURCE: Jennair cook top

Replacing this top is not too difficult. It is secured by four screws on each side. You might have to remove some of the flanging in the back to pull it off. Make sure to unplug the the unit. I would think that the top might be pricy, but if you take your time replacing it should be no problem.

Jenn Air stove wired backwards


The fan is likely 120-volt fan, and swapping the wire likely put 220 across the fan. Did the fan seem to rev up very fast? The control is also likely 120-volt, and that too had 220 applied to it.

Give me the model number, and I'll find what parts you need to replace

Yes the ductless fan will work for you. I have that setup here at my house. Just make sure that you have a charcoal filter installed in the microwave where the air comes out on top. If it is already vent less the filter is probably already there.

Jenn Air Range SVD48600W (Circa 1998?)


ja_question.gif Why are the oven indicator lights flashing? Answer: When power is first supplied to the appliance, a flashing time will appear on the display.
If a flashing time appears at any other time, a power failure has occurred. Press Cancel, and reset the clock if needed.
When the oven is not in use, the display shows the time of day.
If the indicator lights keep flashing after you have tried to reset the controls, then you may need to contact service person.

Oven door will not unlock.


You will not be able to open the door if you turn off temp gage. Return the temp gage only to clean and door should open.
