1st-turned off power to stove top, then removed 2 screws to loosen the control panel. 2nd- I removed the shorted infinite switch by using a pliers to loosen the nut holding the burner in place, undid the electrical connections (noting where each was attached to the old control) and reattached them to the new control. Then I undid the nut holding each of the other 3 burner controls, detached the wires to the old fan switch, reattached the wires to the new fan switch, i removed the red idiot lights (by moving them sideways) from the escut kit. I then reattached everything to the new plate, secured the panel to the stove top, turned the juice on, And it worked as it should, and the new plate made the stove top appear almost new. 30 minutes.
