This was the second repair of the same problem. I realized this time that there was a poor connection between the burner and the receptacle causing a arch, creating extra heat and burning out the receptacle.
All that I had to do was to cut two wires to the existing receptacle assembly and use the wire nuts to connect the new assembly and one philips screw holds it in place...The kit required me to assemble it first and there were four items to put together. No problem....
