My dog tried to get to a pizza box that was sitting on the range. He managed to turn on the burner under the box in the process and set the cooktop on fire, burning the oven control overlay and two front knobs.

The knobs were easy, just pull off and push on. The overlay was more challenging. I used pliers to loosen the two nuts that slip into slots on the back of the top of the range. Took out the two allen screws on the bottom of the range back panel just above the cooking surface. I could then pull out the control panel section. I removed the four screws holding the computer board to the top panel to get to the overlay. The old overlay peeled off easily. I removed the back paper from the new overlay and put it in place. I then removed the top protective film once the overlay was in place. Then it was just a matter of re-assembling and testing to see if it worked. Remember to unplug the range before starting to pull it apart. My range now looks as good as new!
