My Repair & Advice
After many years of excellent service the burner I use most often on the top of my JenAir range rusted through. After trying to remove the burner, which was firmly rusted into place, I decided to replace the cooktop pan, both burners and igniters. It was an easy repair to swap out the new parts for the old, and the only tool necessary was a #2 phillips screw driver. The only difficulty was that although the cooktop pan appears symmetrical, the screw hole pattern on each side is different. I did not discover that until the burners and igniters were all installed, backwards of course! Once together in the right orientation, the refurbished 2 burner unit slid right into place and worked perfectly. The only thing is now the other two burners look shabby and old so I have ordered all new parts for the other side as well. The stove will look brand new when the other is replaced and all for much less than a new range!
