Took the modules out of the cooktop. Removed all screws in the metal trim piece around the top of the cooktop. Removed the trim piece. Removed screws that held in the control panel and lifted control panel out. Removed screws holding on the top black glass cover of the control panel. Unhooked and removed the broken switch. Went to order replacement part... The switch for the cooktop was No Longer Available - tried everyone! DH had a great idea - look at the part they use in the newer cooktops and see if it might work. Ordered it with fingers crossed. Spec's on part checked out. Had to extend one of the connection receptors. Hooked up the switch and tested - Voila! Put everything back together and all is well. Dont have to replace a really good cooktop, even though it is 15 years old!!!
