Question about Jenn-Air JGR8850 Gas Kitchen Range
I have a jenn air model seg196 and the top fan/stove light switch needs replacing where to find this
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.

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!

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.

took off the knob to the ignition system to clean and spray got onto the ignition under the dial and now the two front burners won't ignite unless I turn on one of the functional back burners then turn on the front burner. How do I repair this?
