First disconnected electrical power to range.
Opened the oven door enabling access to bottom of touch pad (membrane panel) front. Removed 4 hex-head screws under membrane panel to free panel from range. Removed 4 surface control knobs then removed 4 surface burner infinite control switches with 4 star-point screw driver (8 screws; 2 per switch). Removed 2 hex-head screws holding clock control. Removed bottom edge strip from under the membrane panel (4 Phillips-head screw driver). Removed both left/right end caps from the membrane panel. Reattached all components in reverse order onto new membrane assembly. Reinstalled new membrane assembly to range.
Reconnected electrical power to range. Tested all components and range is working like new! Other than having an available person to assist in holding panel while reassembling this is pretty much a one-person job. Very common sense steps and relatively easy - even for this woman! Have been inspired to repair timer on dryer.
Actual repair took about 1 hour because I cleaned areas along the way that are normally non-accessible on a daily basis.
