Fan Switch broke off Jenn-Air CVE3400 Radiant Cooktop

I have ordered a new fan knob to replace one that snapped off. The question is how do you remove the old one. How do you get the cooktop uninstalled in order to get to the fan knob connection. Thanks for any help anyone can supply

Re: Fan Switch broke off Jenn-Air CVE3400 Radiant Cooktop

I am wondering if you just need to replace the knob then perhaps you don't need to take much apart.

Is this a knob that has an allen screw in the side that unscrews to let it come off or is it a friction fit.

If the knob is so small that you can't get it off some times wrapping a thin rag around it gives you the way to tug it off. If it is the whole switch you are fixing then I see why you need to take lots of things apart. If found the installation manual online and that might give you a clue to how it is installed in the counter to take it back out if you need to get to the insides. I am not sure what you need help with so please let me know more if this was not enough.

Cooktop Model, Maytag JED8430ADB. When I tried to replace the Fan Control Knob, I accidently pushed the Fan Switch and Knob into the compartment below. How do I get the switch & knob back?

Hello, Thank You for using FixYa. I will be helping you today.You have to lift the unit up from the counter use some boards across the counter to support it and remove the screws from around the unit under the glass lip. On some units there are screws under the vent grille also. After removing the screws lift the whole top off.Thats all you have to do.
Thank You and please rate my answer if it was helpful..

I have a Jenn-Air downdraft cooktop. My blower fan will not shut off. When I press down on the metal part the knob goes on, it will shut off. Can anyone help?

It appears you simply have a bad switch. Try contacting Jenn-Air or looking them up on the web to find out if they have replacement parts available

I have a Jenn-Air cve3400 cooktop. The dual radiant burner doesn't work properly. The inside portion of the burner doesn't work by itself or in tandem with the outside portion of the burner. Is it the...

I just went thru this problem. There are TWO possible switch replacement parts. one is 12002422 and was my correct replacement number.
12002125 was the WRONG part..would not work no matter how you wired it. the failed switch being replaced was part number 7403p406-60. 7403p851-60 will NOT work.
my serial # was 12284711qz
call Jen air customer support and give your serial # and switch part # to get the correct part and diagram... Jenn air changed parts and wiring in the middle of a run.
