My apologies for being so troublesome, but we are still not quite together in identifying the elements in my cooktop unit. Corrected model is GJD3044RB00. I will try again: Please note: For the element diameters, I am measuring the outer white rings on the ceramic cooktop upper surface, directly above each element, not the actual elements, since I have not yet disassembled the cooktop unit. Therefore my measurements are probably about one inch less than the actual element diameter, including the element outer housing, in each case. My cooktop problems are as described below: 1. I have no temp regulation on the left front element. It is a dual element, and measures approximately 9 1/4 inches, when measured as described in item 1. above. I assume the control switch is defective. I need a P/N for the appropriate (dual) control switch for this element. 2. The inner coil of the right rear element does not work. I assume the element is defective. This is also a dual element. I need a P/N for this element. 4. The exhaust fan runs continuously and can not be turned off using the fan control switch. I assume the control switch is defective. I need a P/N for the fan control switch. Please provide part numbers for the three above described parts. Your assistance is much appreciated. William

William D. for Model Number GJD3044L

ANSWER Hello William! Thank you for the updated model number. We are only able to measure the elements themselves. We do not have a way to measure the elements on the cooktop portion. The left front burner temp control it is in the switch, part number 9759474. For the right rear dual element you will need part number 8285937. The speed control switch for the fan is part number 4456836. Hope this information helps you! Thanks!
