Gas valve Switch


First i should say it is very dangerous to preform gas appliance service if you are not trained. if you have evin the slightest question in your own abilities ALWAYS call in the pro's. However I think I can help. 1st turn off and disconnect gas. remove cook top from counter and lay on towel top down. Sense this is glass top there is no service from top. there are a series of screws that go around the perimeter of bottom. remove these screws. The bottom should lift away. this will allow you to change components. hope this helps and good luck.

I should say that it very dangerous to service glass appliances if you are not trained. If you have any question of your abilities stop here and call the pro's. Although I think I can help. 1st turn off the glass and disconnect it from valve. 2nd unplug 110v plug. Remove the cook top from counter and lay it top down on a towel. There is a series of screws around the perimeter of bottom. Remove these screws. The bottom should lift away allowing full access to all components. hope this helps and good luck.

Jenn air cook top


Yes you can. Call Jenn Air ((877) 232-6771) and give them your model number (serial is helpful too). They sent my replacement glass within a week. I have a model JED8430ABD from 2000 and they had the top. Fit perfectly and took about an hour to replace.

To change it out, after unplugging the cooktop, I removed the metal tape connecting the external vent shaft to the blower. Then I just lifted the entire cooktop out up out of the countertop so I could access the screws on the sides of the cooktop (looking at the edges of the new cooktop glass helped me figure out which screws to remove around the edge). Then I removed the 2 screws in the vent area on top (1 black screw on each side). And that released the cooktop glass from the metal box that holds the burners. I then took the rubber rings out of the knob holes so I could put them in the new cooktop (I almost missed that...). Finally, I put the new cooktop glass on, put the screws back in, lowered the cooktop back into the counter, and retaped the blower to the vent shaft. Voila!

I really wouldn't be afraid of doing this yourself if you are handy at all. And it will save you a ton. Good luck.

PS The screws around the perimeter are hexigon shapped, so you can't just use a screwdriver. I found my Black & Decker electric screwdriver had that same shaped hole that it held the bit, so I just pulled out the bit and used the screwdriver that way. Worked like a charm.

Replace JED8430ADB Ceramic Glass


First, you have to pull out the cooktop from the counter and remove the knobs.
Next, there are hex screws around the perimeter - do not remove the lowest ones on the front and the back (they hold the tray that the burners sit in) or the ones on the bottom (they help to hold on the blower assembly).
The final trick are two screws that are located in the downdraft plenum - there's one on each side (you don't have to remove the two in the back or the front - those are for small covers only).
The glass should lift out.
When putting the new glass in, remember that the plenum walls fit on the inside of the glass (you won't see the top of the steel).

Removing and reinstalling


There should be removabe clamps attatched to the bottom of the cooktop which tighten with a screw to the bottom of your countertop. Loosen the screws to the countertop, then remove the screws that attach the brackets to the cooktop. The cooktop should then be able to be pulled out.
