Shut off the power at the fuse box.
Removed the IR unit.
Removed the (4) surface unit control knobs.
Removed the 3 screws (philips) that hold the control strip in place.
Loosened the old switch with a 1/2 " wrench.
Removed the control strip,
Removed the old switch, moved the wires from the old switch to the new switch, it was a bit different, but although at first glance it looks like there are multiple connections for the blue wires, they are all interconnected, on both the old and the new switch.
Mounted the new switch in the control strip, then when testing it (no power yet) I found out I had mounted it wrongly (Off was now on top) I turned the switch, mounted the control strip and all the knobs.
Turned the power back on and everything worked as designed.
One word of caution, I used my lathe to drill out the broken stem from the original control knob (did not want to spend the $$ for a new one) if you do not have the tools to do that I suggest you buy that knob also when you order your new switch.
