Customer Question
The fan/light switch on my...
The fan/light switch on my JennAir d156b downdraft cook top broke, and it is no longer available. I bought a switch on line that says it will work, but it only has two terminals; the original has 4 terminals//7 wires- 3 pairs of wires and one single wire
that are attached to the switch. Which two wires do I attach to make it work for the fan only? Thanks.
