Downdraft stove is over 20 years old, but everything else works fine and it would be a real pain to replace it.

This quick-heat back burner is part of a two burner plug- in unit which takes up half of the top of the stove.

I removed the top from the rest of the unit easily removing five screws. Because of the age and long use it was tough getting the old nut off which holds on the disc, but with the help of some spray lubricant it came off. The old wire ends were also rusted, and to get them off I bent up the old holder, which was going to be discarded anyhow. It was a simple matter to plug in the new unit, tighten the nut, clean up the lubricant with a paper towel, and reassemble the unit, which I cleaned inside since it was dusty. After plugging in the unit I turned on the burner...it works like new and has saved me a very costly replacement. I like it so much that even though the front element works perfectly I am considering buying that disc too just so they will match. Finding your company was absolutely great, and I would recommend you to anyone looking for parts. I still have the manual for this stove so I would feel confident in replacing pretty much any part needed....not bad for a 72 year old woman, (My Dad taught me to do my own work and I am a passable carpenter and plumber; a little more wary when it's something electrical !
