Turned off power to the range. Fan switch shaft had broken from the switch itself (rust) so I could not turn on or off the exhaust fan. Had to remove all the burner control knobs from the control panel. Then I removed all the screws holding the burner switches in place which totaled 8 screws in all (T20 star bit). Be careful removing the glass cover as it may be stuck in place from grease buildup. There were two screws holding the fan switch in place - removed them and switch comes loose. Then there are two wires attached to the bottom of the fan switch (remember where they go L & R). Unplug one at at time and place on new switch before removing the second one so you keep them straight where they go. If you are sure all is good, screw everything back together and turn on power and test. And Voila! You are done.
