Pulled range out of counter about 3 inches to clear instrument panel side plates. Removed knob from control switch. Removed 4 screws retaining trim at bottom of instrument panel. Removed 4 screws holding instrument panel in place. Lowered instrument panel. Rotated panel top outward to expose surface burner infinite control switches. Checked all connections to suspect control switch with voltmeter to ensure no residual voltages present. Held new switch in same position as installed switch and swapped connections one at a time. Removed two screws holding old switch in panel and removed old switch. Installed new switch in panel using the two screws removed. Re-assembled range in reverse order above and slide back into counter. Recoupled downdraft fan discharge duct and reattached access panel. Reattached conrol switch knob. Restored power to range at main power switch panel. Turned control switch to High until element was red hot. Turned control knob to Low and verified element heat was reduced normally.
