Removed switch cover by removing 2 top back screws on right and left side. Removed Handle (star screw) and a black screw on each side of handle. Also removed the 4 (small) screws on top. This removes the switch cover.
Remove front panel screws 3 on each side, remove panel. May have to reinstall handle to open and close door for troubleshooting.
Turn power off at the CB panel. Disconnect timer connectors and screws on timer and remove timer.
Remove screws on switch module. and then remove the color coded wires from the back of the module. Both parts are put in to be removed easily. Reinstall parts then test. Worked like new. Parts got here in 2 days, very happy with "Parts Select". Lloyd
