Hi, you have to remove the top before you can replace the new part...
Remove any ceramic-glass tops or vent grills and filters present on the surface of the Jenn-Air range top by lifting them out of place and setting them aside.
Cut the power supply at the main circuit breaker by switching the circuit that controls the range top to the "Off" position.
Open the cabinet beneath the Jenn-Air range top. Clear out any objects in the way so you can access the blower and connections to the electrical or gas, if present.
Locate the gas-supply valve underneath the range top in gas models. Turn the valve to the "Off" position. Unscrew the gas hose.
Locate the blower, which is the large, circular device to the side underneath the Jenn-Air range top. Disconnect any venting attached to the blower. The venting is held in place with clamps, strips or tape.
