I ordered the cover and the face plate because I was unsure of the condition of the cover and because the face plate is stuck on the cover. The repair was very simple. Turn off power to unit. Remove the spill plate, it just pulls out. Then remove the two screws that are seen when the spill plate is pulled out. The cover slides down and comes out. Disconnect the two wires to the operator switch, they just pull off. Take two small screw drivers and gently raise the tabs that latch in the circuit board jack and pull the jack down to remove it. Remove the one screw that secures the circuit board and use a small screw driver to gently raise the tabs that hold the circuit board in place on the bottom side and remove the circuit board. Install the circuit board on the new cover and intall the holding screw. Plug in the jack that connects the circuit board to the unit. The plug in the two wires to the microswitch. Install the cover and install the two holding screws. Slide in the spill plate. Finally install the face plate, it just sticks on and is very easy because the cover is resessed where it is to be installed. In all I think it took me longer to wright this than it did to do the repair.
