FIRST I UNPLUGGED THE GLASS TOP RANGE. While locating the part on the PartSelect diagram I was also able to determine how to access the burned out element. It was very simply to remove three phillips head screws in the front top( above the oven)area of the range, slide the topof the range forwardand lift it up, remove one screw holding the metal bar under the element, replace the element by usinga a pair of pliers to remove the electrical wires and then reversed the process. I saved a tidy amount doing the job myself.

killed the 50 amp power. removed 3 screws from above oven door slid out cook top, dropped brace holding 2 front burners. The connector corroded off had to look for a high heat connector to connect to the element, after that just screwed everything back together.

Disconnected power. Removed hold down fasteners for stove top. Fortunately, I did not flue down or use the double back tape to secure stovetop to counter. If this adhesive were used, it is possible I would have had great difficulty in removing range. I did not disconnect the wiring, but turned the range top over to access the cover. I removed the cover and easily removed the failed burner and installed the new ones. I had to pull 4 wires from the terminal strip and reattach them. The hold down strap for the burner was reinstalled. Range top turned back over and fastened down. Back in service.

Followed the procedure used in replacing the previous switches. The part came without a bushing needed to adjust the height of the knob sticking above the surface of controls. Fortunately, I could use the bushing from the previous part. I suggest a bushing should be included with this part.

I ordered the 8" burner switch and two of the screws! I flipped the surface top up side down and removed 2 screws that held the cover over all the switches. I flipped it right side up to remove the 2 screws in the bad switch, flipped it over again to switch the wires from bad switch to new one, being careful to keep the letters and numbers matched. Replaced the 2 screws on top side and replaced the cover on the bottom and went back to cooking! Very easy!
