I first turned off the power to the stovetop at the breaker box, disconnected the power supply wires, removed the stovetop from the counter, placed the stovetop on a towel on the kitchen table, removed the screws connecting the glass top to the base, removed the glass top, removed additional screws holding the sheetmetal housing for the switches, opened this area and located the faulty switch, disconnected the wires leading to the faulty switch, connected the wires to the new switch, secured the switch to the sheetmetal housing and put the unit back together. It was not a difficult repair, just took a little time.
