1)Turn off breaker to range
1.1)Disconnect the downdraft vent blower
2)Remove Range from Counter area (delicate procedure)
Caution do not stress (Lift with or pull on) the cook-top
3)Remove Ceramic cook-top from base (hidden fasteners-remove the vert trim at front of range - it hides two fasteners)
4)Remove old elements
5)Rebuild the supplied elements (multiple options, copy the old element layout before disassembling- tricky)
6)Swap-out replacement elements (replacement elements were assembled slightly differently in the new style elements so wiring was slightly different)
7)Re-assemble Ceramic cook-top
8)Re-mount to base (needs assistant to support ceramic while reconnecting cable harness connector)
8) Re-set range into counter (Ceramic cook-top is very delicate, so extreme care is required to prevent damage)
