This was a piece of cake! We put off doing this for ourselves because we thought it would be difficult. We sold the house and "had" to do it. Turns out we should have done it for ourselves a long time ago.

This wasn't much of a repair -- rather a replacement of a simple abused part. At the same time, PartSelect allowed me to order what I needed after two failed attempts to buy replacements that would fit the range. I'll remember PartSelect if we need parts for other older appliances in the rental units.

I USED A PHILLIPS SCREWDRIVER TO REMOVE THE CONTROL SWITCH.I DREW A DIAGRAM ON A PIECE PAPER WHERE THE WIRE CONTACTS CONNECTED I WROTE THE DIFFERENT # AND WIRE COLORS DOWN . I COMPARED THE 2 SWITCHES THEY WERE THE SAME.SO I CONNECTED THE WIRES . I PUT THE 2 SCREWS ON. THE STEM WAS HIGHER THAN THE OTHER SWITCHERS.SO I HAD TO CUT THE STEM SHORTER.
