1. Open the circuit breaker feeding the range. Turn all range control switches ON to establish that there is no power. Remove all knobs.
2. Get under the range and remove the 2 hex-head screws securing the flex conduit to the bottom panel. Then remove the 20 hex-head screws securing the panel to the range. Lower the panel and place aside, and then after checking for no voltage disconnect the red and black incoming wires by pulling on the spade connectors. Make sure you mark which wire went where.
3. From below apply pressure to the range frame to free the top surface gasket from collected food debris, then from above lift our the range and place upside down on a towel. Support the range with wooden blocks so that the unit is not resting on the knob shafts.
4. The control switches are all mounted on a common bracket with two screws for each switch. The first task is to remove two screws on each side holding the bracket to the frame, and then two wire harnesses on each side. Then gently move the bracket and rotate it sidewards so you have access to the screws holding down the switches.
5. Remove the defective switch leaving all the wires still connected.
6. Install the new switch and transfer the wires from the defective switch.
7. You're done, now restore everything in reverse, just make sure all wires move freely and not pinched.
