Cooktop downdraft blower control knob broke off

I saw your reply re a CVE3400. My control knob broke off a while back and I can't figure out what to do. It's a friction (slide on) attachment but the sleeve of the broken part iis still inside the cooktop and I have no tool narrow enough to grasp it. Is there a way to lift the glass top away?

Hello
Yes their is a way, you need to unplug the power, and look for the brackes that holds the cooktop to the counter, remove those scrwes and lift the cook top, then look under the top lip and you will see small scrwes, remove those and the glass will lift, then just reverse the steps.
Hope this help!!

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

Jenn-Air Cooktop replacement needed


You can get a new cooktop surface from Maytag/Jennair for $229. It is a pain however to replace it. Where is the crack in your cooktop and does that crack pass directly through a heating element? If not, then you may be able to repair it. I broke the corner off mine, and then dropped the piece (now 5 pieces). I was able to bond them back together and you really can't tell it was ever broken. But, it takes some work.

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).

Fan has difficulty turning, buzzes


Hi
Tha model is a Maytag.
There are a few things to check here, and it's best always to use the proces of elimination.
These are the things you need to check:
1.MOTOR, DOWNDRAFT
2.BLOWER ASSEMBLY
3.SCROLL, BLOWER ASSY.
4.CORD, POWER (MOTOR)

as you mention before sometime run and sometimes do not run.
youll have to start by checking those items and make sure they are not damage or obstructed. I have some wiring diagrams for that model, if you would like for me to email them to you, please let me know.
I hope that will help you

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.
