I USED A PHILLIPS SCREWDRIVER TO REMOVE THE CONTROL SWITCH.I DREW A DIAGRAM ON A PIECE PAPER WHERE THE WIRE CONTACTS CONNECTED I WROTE THE DIFFERENT # AND WIRE COLORS DOWN . I COMPARED THE 2 SWITCHES THEY WERE THE SAME.SO I CONNECTED THE WIRES . I PUT THE 2 SCREWS ON. THE STEM WAS HIGHER THAN THE OTHER SWITCHERS.SO I HAD TO CUT THE STEM SHORTER. IT HAD GROVES SO IT WAS EASY TO USE A HACKSAW TO CUT A LITTLE THEN USE A LOCK PLIERS TO HOLD THE STEM AND ANOTHER TO BREAK IT OFF THEN IT FIT PERFECT I PUT THE KNOB ON PRESTO NEW SWITCH.JUST LIKE NEW.
