I first unplugged the electric cord and closed gas valve. Then I removed the grates and burners from the cooktop and poped open the cooktop, prying it loose with a flat screwdriver. I was able to lift it about 2 .5 inches, barely enough to get my hand in. I then removed the 2 screws that hold the thermostat in place, unplugged the two wires connecting to the thermostat, noting the red goes on the left side. I then threaded the sensing bulb from the oven back up to the cooktop and removed the whole unit. To install the new one, I just reversed steps. Only cautionary note is with the aluminum tubes under the cooktop. Be careful not to pull them too much or they'll bend beyond repair.
