Got a no-name tailor-it-yourself replacement switch from a San Jose, CA appliance parts store; but the switch was so cheaply made that it fell apart when I tested it.

Got a RobertShaw part from PartSelect and now the burner works perfectly.

I removed the old knob and replaced it with the new Maytag knob which worked.

I was especially pleased because another website had listed the part as unavailable, and a local parts store said they could not help me. Our range is at least 30 years old.

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 3 inches and disconnected the two wires. I had to use a mirror and flashlights to see in the back of the oven to replace the screws in the new element. It was very close quarters and difficult to see behind element plate.

The hardest part was taking out original light bulb because screws on shield where hard to unscrew after all this years . The old bulb vent out leaving neck in socket. 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.
