Hi there!

There are two basic types, Flush fitting and framed.

The framed versions are a bit like a picture frame, with the fixings around the edge and back. The flush ones rely on adhesives to the base edge around the plate, but may have a metal fixing frame attatched already.

Check the new plate you have to see if there are any keyhole shaped slots on a subframe (indicating a drop on, and push forward to lock arrangement) or if it looks different to the one that is broken.

The old saying - "If in doubt- ask" is true here, and you should telephone the manufacturer for any specific fitting instructions. You may need additional parts - fixing plates, screws, seals or adhesives, so I would advise calling their service department to ask if additional parts are required for fitting.They should be happy to supply them if needed.
This is not a cheap item, so don't risk poor fitting or damage by lack of correct parts.

Obviously, safety first. This being an electrical fix, unplug or otherwise disconnect the power to the appliance.
A philips screwdriver and 1/4" nut driver(or socket) are all that's needed.
First, there are 8 fasteners on the underside of the control panel. Only the 4 nearest the oven openning need to be removed from here.
Next, remove the burner knobs for the stovetop(simply pull straight off; if stuck, wrap a folded wash cloth behind the knob to gain extra leverage). Then remove the 4 screws that were behind the knobs.
At this point the panel should be loose and pulling out the bottom of the control panel will allow it to clear the knob shafts. Be careful not to pull too far, as the wires to the control board are rather delicate.

WHAT DO I USE TO CLEAN AN ELECTRIC JENN-AIR CERAMIC COOKTOP; THE BURNT FOOD BUILDUP.


a good product is CERAMABRYTE. it is designed for ceramic cooktops and is a white lotion type cleaner. if there is a lot of burned buildup you may also need to purchase a special scraper with a blade in it. but make sure you smear the cleanser on FIRST or you will scratch the surface.

Burner fails to ignite


I have this cooktop and it is hands-down the worst. That clicking sound is the spark missing the mark because of a crack or chip in the ceramic igniter. Damage is caused by the ceramic heating too quickly. Especially when the house is cooler in winter, or in air conditioning. I had a Jenn Air repair guy in to replace them before the warranty ran out and he said this happens with every single one of these models with the ceramic igniter. Also, one of the knobs on the front by the medium burner got so hot it melted. He gave us a new one. He had a whole box of them in his truck! He told us the design was inferior and that Jenn Air uses a different igniter for higher end models because of this problem, but won't re-engineer the lower end units because it's cost prohibitive. Even with the repairs they cover for the first year, they recoup in charging for service the second year, than profit on the repair and/or replacement charges for the parts every year after that. All the parts sold are OEM--no after markets, so, at roughly $27 a pop for each igniter, they make out pretty good. Oh, and the burner knob is melted again. What a bunch of scamsters. I will never give them my money again and am shopping for a new cooktop. I left a good review at bizrate for this cooktop.
