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.

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.

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 did a continuity test and determined the old element was bad - ordered the new one and put back the screws. All done!
