The filter is always good to check first. If not chances are its a flow problem a shop vac works wonders.

Jenn-air CCE3401 Radiant cooktop one burner takes a long time to heat. has since purchase.Advise

Turn off range circuit breaker.
Remove burner and measure the connections across it. See how many Ohms you get.
Do the same to an identical sized burner which works well and measure its resistance. If the numbers differ considerably the burner needs replacement.
You had mentioned you own a 'radiant' cook top which implies a glass type top, in that situation you may need to pull the oven out to get to the rear connections.
If you decide to continue on this project you may have to pull out the lowest drawer, this will expose the safety bracket which prevents the complete oven from falling over and hurting anyone who may lean inadvertently on the oven door and cause it to tilt forwards.
When the oven is slid to the front the first 5-6 inches keep it from tilting. This is mentioned now because once the oven is removed and is pushed back towards the wall afterwards, the bracket may not align properly and you may be puzzled as to why you can't move it back. In addition there may be a crowfoot connection (voltage) which needs to be disconnected if it's not long enough for access.
Most ovens have a folded piece of paper in the rear which shows the schematic diagram. This is sometimes in a clear bag which sticks permanently to the oven. It's meant for the service technician.
When the oven is removed and looked at from the rear a plate just below the burners may have to be unscrewed. This will show the various electrical connections. See the schematic for help...and
before you undertake such a task, I'd suggest you would look on You-Tube on checking burners, etc. It may stop you in your tracks and get a serviceman to help you.
There is a company called Appliance Zone which I used for my microwave front panel replacement. They carry everything for large appliances.
They are good for parts and general assistance.
If you have and use a VOM at home you seem to realize on how to apply your talents, otherwise I would consider getting professional help.

How do I remove based grill

You should be able to get your fingers behind it, either on both ends or underneath. You MAY POSSIBLY need to open the freezer door a little and hook your fingers behind the top of the grille.

I used my grill for the first time, & the downdraft didn't work we'll, the house filled with smoke & eventually the downdraft shut off and I had to finish cooking in a pan. My Jenn-Air is...

The downdraft is electric so there must be something malfunctioning with it. It is a high volume downdraft fan that is to be vented to the outside. Could it be that something has clogged the vent hole up, not allowing the fan to evacuate the smoke?

While I am not a big fan of Jenn-Air, their fans are usually high quality if they are installed correctly, with the proper vent lines.

Exhaust turns on automatically in burner mode

I have the one with the 4 burners and the grill, and when the grill in on the fan has to come on, and it does automaticly, but once you finish with the grill you have to change it back to stove mode by putting the 2 burners back or the fan will allways go on when you turn the switch. It is a safety regulation for the fan to be on with the grill to avoid the fumes......I know I hate that too.
Hope this help

Kenmore Electric Counter Unit 43421

You are right it is the infinate heat control. This has no thermostat. It works by letting the burner cycle on for longer periods of time on the higher settings on high it is on constantly. The contacts are probably fused inside This part shouldn't be more than $25.

Burner light does not go off on Amana AKT3040

Sounds like a short in that particular burner circuit. Usually when the light stays on even after cool down the heat sensor is bad. This is inside the burner. If your getting white smoke the burner switch could also be shorted out.
