First I cut the circuit at the breaker, and then pulled the range from wall to access the access panel. This top panel was held with 4 screws and removable with a standard phillips head screwdriver.

I then removed the 5 wire-crimped fasteners from the defective surface burner switch. (I first labeled these wires to ensure correct placement to the new switch). There were an additional two screws behind the corresponding knob that needed to be removed in order to completely remove the old switch.

The new switch was installed in reverse order to the steps indicated above (two screws behind knob, 5 wire-crimped fasteners, 4 screws to panel). Range was pushed back into position and breaker turned on.

My husband had already removed the back plate form the stove and detached the wires from the old burner switch because it was keeping the burner on. He unscrewed the old switch and removed it. He then popped in the new switch, attached the wires to the correct contacts, and put the back plate back on. We plugged in the stove, and that burner works good as new.

It took narrow electrical pliers to get neck out .The generic appliance bulb did not fit and had aluminum neck ,not recommended for brass sockets in ovens.Putting new light bulb in was not the problem.

The unit has two spring clips that hold it in place. Also two screws that hold the element to the clips. It comes apart ok but doesn't go back as easy. I didn't remove the top as there was room to work from under it.

My daughter held the top down against a wooden dowl i was using as a prop rod . My wife held the unit in place . I finally got the clips back on and the screws back in . Centered the unit , transfered the wires , and it works perfect . Only three people and 30 min.

Thank you PartSelect for all your help !!

Use a 1/4" nutdriver and remove the screws that are on the bottom corners of the range top.Prop up the range top high enough for ease of using 1/4" nut driver. Take a picture of the wiring for future reference on re-installing wiring. Note arrow location on burner and remove 1/4" screws holding the clamps to the burner in place and place to the side for re-install on new burner.Remove wiring off old burner.Hold new burner in place with arrow location in previous location and notice holes where clamps will go. Screw clamps on burner using original screws and snap in mounting slots on stove.Re-install wiring.Lower range top and re install 2 screws , 1 in each corner under range top. Test for proper operation and enjoy!
