This was a countertop mounted cooktop. The hardest part of the repair was getting the cooktop out of the hole and separating the glass top from the burner box. It is highly recomended that you have two people to seperate the top from the burner box. Be sure you turn off the breaker to the cooktop first before you do any work. One time saver is once you have the top sperated from the box use 2- 10"-12" pieces of 1x2 or 2x4 to prop the top open. This will eleminate the need to disconnect the power leads (be sure the breaker is OFF). If you are not electrically inclined mark the color of the wires to the corrosponding terminals on the new element BEFORE you remove them from the old element. The element that I replaced was the dual heat element. I ended up having to change 2 of the terminal ends on the wiring harness becacuse they were too small for the new element. Carefully remove the wires from the old elenent using needle nose pliers and remove the old element by removing the 2 screws that hold the element to the hold down clips, then loosen the clip mounting screws & remove the element. Change terminals if needed & reassmble in reverse order. Once I got it reassembled with a couple of the top mounting screws in, I turned on the breaker and tested for proper operation. Breaker OFF, finish reassembly and remount. You may want to consider replacing foam gasket before remounting. Good luck... R. Moore

4. Confirmed the circuit was de-energized. Voltmeter set to AC, measure across the L1, L2 connections, should be 0 VAC or very close.
5. Make a diagram of the existing connections to the controls to be replaced, note all control markings (L1, L2, H1, H2, PL) as the replacement controls have connectors in different locations.
6. Remove the AC Mains plate, 2 sheet metal screws.
7. Make a diagram of the primary AC distribution blocks.
8. Remove the AC Mains input leads, Red and Black.
9. Remove the AC distribution to the controls from the primary AC distribution blocks. Needed to free up the control panel.
10. Remove the 4 sheet metal screws holding the control panel.

12. Remove one control with the wires attached.
13. Install the replacement control. Secure the screws.
14. Transfer the wires, matching the connection marking (L1, L2, H1, H2, PL) exactly.
15. Do the same (12, 13, 14) with the next control.
16. Re-install the control panel. Check all wires for clearance.
17. Re-connect the control wiring to the AC primary distribution blocks.
18. Re-connect the AC mains wiring to the primary AC distribution blocks.
19. Re-install the AC mains plate.
20. Visually check all the connections. Shake out any debris.
21. Replace the bottom cover, installing all screws.

Replacement of burner control switch

  • Customer: Farouk from Sudbury MA
  • Difficulty: A Bit Difficult
  • Time to Complete: More than 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Nutdriver, Pliers, Screw drivers

1. Open the circuit breaker feeding the range. Turn all range control switches ON to establish that there is no power. Remove all knobs.
2. Get under the range and remove the 2 hex-head screws securing the flex conduit to the bottom panel. Then remove the 20 hex-head screws securing the panel to the range. Lower the panel and place aside, and then after checking for no voltage disconnect the red and black incoming wires by pulling on the spade connectors. Make sure you mark which wire went where.
3. From below apply pressure to the range frame to free the top surface gasket from collected food debris, then from above lift our the range and place upside down on a towel. Support the range with wooden blocks so that the unit is not resting on the knob shafts.
4. The control switches are all mounted on a common bracket with two screws for each switch. The first task is to remove two screws on each side holding the bracket to the frame, and then two wire harnesses on each side. Then gently move the bracket and rotate it sidewards so you have access to the screws holding down the switches.
5. Remove the defective switch leaving all the wires still connected.
6. Install the new switch and transfer the wires from the defective switch.
7. You're done, now restore everything in reverse, just make sure all wires move freely and not pinched.

Thanks for the previous viewer's tip, disconnect power, pushed the cook top out of the counter and used a wood block for the support. Unscrew the smooth top from the burner, remove old and plug in the new one. Connect power, test OK. Put everything back.
