Knobs sent fit the shafts, but due to molded internal stop wouldn't seat. Had to drill out the stop, and also file down the shafts a bit for knobs to seat acceptably closer to stove-top.

Pulled out the old one-couldn't find it ANYWHERE that was a comparable match except for partselect. shut off breaker to oven-put in the new one-hard to reach in due to limited space and hard to see due to sticking your head in an oven.used a mirror/flashlight to see behind element to unscrew and screw it back in.Other than space restriction and light-pretty easy. Works great! Thanks for HAVING the part!! :)

The only trouble I couldn't remove the screws that held the wires to the element, so I cut the wires as close to the end as possible and attached new hardware. After that was done it was simple to reinstall the new element. Turned the power back on. Turned the oven on and it worked like new.

Replacing the switch was very easy. First I unplugged the range to be sure there would be no electrical power to the switch. Then I removed four screws to remove the switch cover plate (located above the oven door). I disconnected the wires from the pin connectors on the broken switch, then removed the switch by removing one hex nut. The new switch was installed by reversing the removal procedure. Took about 15 minutes total time.

First I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. Then I pulled the element out about 2 inches & disconnected the two wires, Then I removed the ground wire. I then wired in the new element ( this was the only tough part of the process, because I had a very tight space to work in- less than 2 inches.

I originally ordered the knobs that appeared to be an exact match for the ones on the stove top (Part # PS1515077). However those knobs are designed to fit on D post stems. I finally ordered PS48861 which are designed to fit double flat post stems which is what I have on my stove top. New parts fit perfectly. Remove old knobs put new ones on. Total repair time less than one minute. Part Select was great about getting the original parts and replacement to me quickly.
