Followed the video step by step, made the job simple and easy. Did not know there were springs attached to the lower part of hinge till watching video.

This is twin oven range with controls at side of upper oven. Control panel was fastened with screws at top and bottom. Range has built-in hood at top which had to be disassembled to reach top screw. Once had access to top screw, eaisly removed control panel and replaced control. New control had identical connections as old control so only had to install it, break shaft to correct length, and use proper shaft adapter for knob. Remounted control panel and range worked perfectly. This would have been a very quick job except for having to deal with the built-in range hood.

1. Turned off breaker (Important!) => 2. Removed two (2) metal screws from element mount (1/4" socket or nutdriver) => 3. Pulled element out enough to disconnect wire connections from element (I bent mine up a little to keep them from disappearing back into the holes!) => 4. Connected each wire to new element then re-installed element into position => 5. Re-installed to metal screws (Do not over tighten!) => 6. Turned breaker back on then turned on oven. Element heated up quickly! You may notice a slight smell of something burning when you first turn it on, but that's normal and will fade quickly. Repair completed and $$$ saved!

the original path was from the right front control knob around the back of the range and left side of range,which i dismantaled to install the new wires to the right front burner. When I found them to be to short I had to also dismantal the right side so the wires could be routed there. The new wires worked fine but did take some extra time.

1. The infinite switch had several knobs which would fit the switch shaft. Read the directions included with the switch in order to have the shaft fit the proper knob. You can break the shaft with two pairs of pliers. 2. Move the stove away from the wall and unplug it. 3. Remove the 1/4 screws from the back side of the stove and remove the back panel, exposing the switch. 4. Remove the wires one at a time and put them on the new switch. The terminals are L1, L2, P, H1 & H2. The Pilot (p) has a smaller terminal so you don't get it mixed up. Generally L1 is black, L1 is red, P is yellow, H1 and H2 can be blue, brown, yellow, orange or one of these colors striped on a white wire. 5. Remove the old switch from the stove and be sure to save the two mounting screws. 6. Position the new switch so that the side of the switch marked "top" is on top. 7. Install the screws on the new switch and put the knob on it. 8. Carefully test the burner. 9. Unplug the stove and put the back cover on.

#1 I turned off power to stove. Removed two hex head screws that hold burner in place. Next carefully pulled burner out & disconnected the two electric wires that supply power to burner & hooked the wires to the new burner. Then carefully push new burner into place & install the two hex head screws that hold burner in place. Turn power back on to stove & the stove should be turned on for a short time to let the new oily smell burn off the new burner. Then you are finished & stove is ready to use.
