Thankfully I found this and one other posting... Turns out that Radio Shack is the solution for this, specifically, go & pick up 1 1/2" Communications-type Control Knob (2 per package) Radio Shack Part # 274-0402. It's set up for 1/4 inch shaft & has a set screw to hold it. Perfect fix afaic.

I would go to an ACE hardware or any other hardware store, bring in the old knob if you had it to find another that would match the shaft which it connects to, another place might be Radio Shack.

    you tagged my solution as inappropriate, but that is where I have gone to get misc. knobs for things. Specifically Radio Shack (not trying to promote them, but they have what you need), the switch is a slightly different matter, but I'm sure you can find a switch there also, just make sure of two things:



    1) you know how to replace switches (may include soldering things). Important, since replacing something in a non-safe manner can cause a fire, or short something out.



    2) you feel comfortable in taking it apart and getting to the switch. If you are not comfortable, then either get another fan, or have an electrical shop fix it for you.

Is it the actual knob that is broken or the little tab the knob holds onto that is broken. You either need a replacement knob or a replacement switch assuming the know is also the thermostat for the unit. Does that same knob control the fan speed? Temprature or timer?

I can tell you about my experience on my 1999 F150. I do not believe it is the blower control switch because mine went out and only affected the fan speed. On my truck, in an incident like yours, I could not get a good response from the temperature switch.

I would turn the control and it would hit a stop on both ends, but the temperature would not change to match the switch. What I found is the stem of the temperature control did not turn because the knob cracked behind the switch. There is a half-moon shaped metal clip inside the plastic temperature knob. The clip can spin when the knob is cracked and nothing moves right.

Because the plastic knob has molded stops under the knob, from the drivers point of view, the knob was turning lock to lock. In reality, the stem was not turning. Try taking the knob off and turning the stem with pliers wrapped in cloth to protect the plastic. Then see if the temperature changes.

Hello .. you should be able to find a replacement for your fan control at any building supply store, a home depot type store. Look or ask for a variable speed fan control. This is slightly different from a normal liight dimmer . You might also look for a replacement knob before replacing the whole switch, or matbe getting a replacement just to replace the knob ..

Don't.  What you have to do is take the ashtray out then remove the 2 screws.  Pry the whole assembly off and replace the switch in the back. The knob only moves the switch back and forth and nothing more.

Fan Switch


You need to take the unit down to access the switchs. The unit should be mounted to the top of the cabinet by wood screws or nuts/bolts that you'll need to remove. Before starting any project having to do with appliances, always remember to turn off the power to that appliance by switching off the circuit breaker in your house panel. Once you have removed the screws, the unit will lower and you will see the cover that you'll need to remove and it will expose the switches. Goos luck

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.

Broken Knob for fan control


once you take off the front housing, the switch itself shoud be easy to remove and replace...sometimes, a used appliance store/repair office can get a suitable replacement part. Trick is to mark the wires as you remove them from the switch and take hte switch with you while you go part hunting. Also would help to have model and serial number (and brand name) noted to take along. Papdaddy
