The right front burner control was broken and would spin freely 360 degrees. After my ordered part arrived,I shut the gas supply off to the stove and lifted the stove top up to expose the gas feed system. I had to remove all the gas knobs then I removed the front sheetmetal cover that goes over all the burner control valve shafts.With that done I disconnected the gas feed tube from the burner end then the burner valve end and remover the tube. I remover the bad valve, which will have the electronic start switch still attached to it. Gently, but firmly, pull the switch off the burner valve. Push new burner valve into the switch and re-assemble burner valve to the main gas feed manifold. You then reassemble the parts you removed in the reverse order. Turn the main gas valve to the stove ON and check for leaks. If all is OK, lower stove top and try the new valve for proper operation.
