To repair the light switch you need to replace the control board since the switch is not replaceable. The control board is easily gotten to by removing the outer cover, which snaps out, the removing the screws that hold the housing for the control board, make sure you disconnect the power and turn off the water supply before you remove the outer cover.. The board is held in place by a bracket which has two screws, make sure you disconnect the two wiring harnesses before the bracket. Once you get the bracket off the control board slides right out. To install the new board, just reverse the process.

Changing the handle is accomplished by remove popping out the top and bottom trim pieces, then remove the upper and lower screws from the handle. Reverse the process to install the handles.
