In cleaning range top with control knobs off, cleaner splashed onto the plastic sandwich containing wires, etc. "spark spark whoosh puff." Turned off electricity, removed sandwich which controled the burner which didn't light and discovered a cooked interior. Going to PartSelect, matched model number, drawing of part, click, order, wait one day. Each burner had to be removed with the star-flower screwdriver, range lid removed. The assembly was a connected set of five. Unsnap old, Insnap new. Easy, peasy. The difficult part was elevating the range tray with one knee to a level where the burners could be screwed back in. It works! New widow, I didn't need directions or physical assistance. Just make certain you have that special little screw driver to remove the burner.
