Under the Range FAQ there is an instructional reply to a member's question on how to remove the control panel on the Jenn-Air downdraft slide-in range SVD-48600W.

The reply states that "the four hex-head screws under the bottom of the panel must be removed and then you pull out and down on the panel".

"Caution"

You must first remove the four small screws that are behind each gas surface control knob also or else you will bend and possibly destroy the whole gas control area if you get "reefing" on it thinking it's stuck and needs just a little more "umphh".

This original instructional reply should be revised by a forum moderator to include this information. I wasted a half hour and possibly damaged my range because of this little omission concerning the four almost invisible little black screws behind the knobs on the gas control valves.

While it may be readily apparent to a Pro that these hard to see small black screws obviously needed  removing after control knob removal, it ain't neccessarily a fact for we whom follow the info given to us on the forum

I don't know...

Maytag's (Jennaire) Service Manual doesn't mention those 4 small screws....

Page 2-10

You're right........I just looked at the manual and they're not mentioned.

The little black screws (4) are right in next to each of the cook top's gas valve stems (remove them after gas control knob removal) They go through the Control Panel to each burner's gas control and will hold the control panel (Touchpad, etc.) to the gas control blocks until removed.

It took me a while and I think I killed my touch pad by reefing on it prior to discovering their existence (the four little screws) so now I have to buy a a new touchpad panel for $180 or so. I was thinking it might just be the ribbon that attaches to the relay control (display box) from the touch panel.

After I installed the new display I immediately noticed that the "cancel" touch pad didn't operate. The next day numbers "1-6" didn't operate either. (all other function buttons appeared to be operating as well as "7-9" numbers.

I opened it back up took it apart and reinstalled the the ribbon a couple of times to see if it was the connection to the display box where the ribbon goes in. Afterwards, none of the numbers (1-9) or the cancel wanted to work but the oven light would flicker on and off and the oven cooling fan would cycle on and off for a few seconds. You could hear the clicking relay as it did this. I'm not so sure that it's not the ribbon connector on the new just replaced display box. That would chap my ass having spent the money on a display that now works but with a faulty touch pad ribbon connector junction holder.

I'll give ti one more go and see if screwing around with the ribbon into the connector does anything. If not I'll try my luck and get a new touchpad panel and hope it's not a bad ribbon connector on the just replaced display control box.

After that, it's off to the dump with it if there's no fix. I wish there were another brand (better) downdraft that would fit my penninsula's existing Jenn-Air downdraft/electrical/NG locations on the floor under it. Any product suggestions?
