First I removed the two screws that held the switch in place and disconnected the five different wires to the device. Then I connected the five wires back in there same locations on the new part and placed it back into the mounting slot / hole. Then put the two screws back to hold it in place. Put the range's back cover back on and connected it back to the power supply box under the cabinet. Turned the breaker back on and turned the new burner knobs on high and got the red glow from the burners and the red indication lights from the range. Yeah, back in service just in time for Thanksgiving cooking. (Changed out 2 burner controls and replaced the hole covers on the switch knobs) Complete project. Thanks
