I first turned off the power to the stovetop at the breaker box, disconnected the power supply wires, removed the stovetop from the counter, placed the stovetop on a towel on the kitchen table, removed the screws connecting the glass top to the base, removed the glass top, removed additional screws holding the sheetmetal housing for the switches, opened this area and located the faulty switch, disconnected the wires leading to the faulty switch, connected the wires to the new switch, secured the switch to the sheetmetal housing and put the unit back together. It was not a difficult repair, just took a little time.

Ceramic cooktop: Turn off power to the unit. remove long "locking" screws from underside of the unit; remove clips (may take a little effort if they are "frozen" in place) From underneath unit lift it up and out of the counter - do not try to lift from ceramic top- remove 4 control knobsun - remove 12 screws (3 per side) attaching ceramic top to the unit - carefully work ceramic top off the bottom frame; its a friction fit - do not force it. Place ceramic top in a safe, flat space. Note the orientation of the burner - you will need to replace the new one in the exact same orientation - also note the connections on the existing unit and match them to where they will go on the new unit. (note: my old unit had a black wire that was replaced by a solid metal strip) work the wire clips off the existing unit, flip it ove and note the number on the "clock face" where the spring clips attach. You may need to drill a small pilot hole from the top side. remove the spring clips from the old unit and place them on the new unit. These clips align the unit in the proper location and provide proper contact with the bottom of the ceramic top. Replace the top gentley working it onto the base and replace the 12 screws. Place the unit back in the countertop being careful to lift up to reposition so you don't disturb the foam tape along the edge of the opening. Replace the clips in the side of the unit, replace the mounting screws, replace the control knobs, turn power back on. You should be done. Takes about 30 minutes.

It's easier with two people.
1 - Turn the breaker for the range to OFF
2 - Verify power is off by testing the burners and lights
3 - Remove front two screws above oven door jamb
4 - Lift the top and prop it up with the spoon, or have your helper hold it.
5 - Loosen the screw at the rear of the bracket that holds the elements against the glass top (front and rear are held by the same retainer)
6 - Remove the bad element by sliding it sideways from the retainer. Do not disconnect things yet.
7 - The burner has numbers around the edge. Move brackets from old element to new one, matching the numbers. Then move wiring to new element. New burner may have a single connector where old one had 2 and a jumper. If so, ignore jumper.
8 - Slide new element under bracket and reinstall the screw.
9 - Lower the range top and re-install the screws.
10 - Turn on power and test.

Kill all power going to cook top.Remove knobs and lift cook top out of opening. Remove screws around outer edge of cook top, and lift glass top off of metal box.You must pry metal inward slightly to release glass top. Be carefull not to damage glass top. Now that top is removed take out two screws that hold switches in place and lift out piece that holds all switches and remove the two screws that hold the bad switch in place. Be careful and make a diagram of how the switch is wired. Remove wires on bad switch and wire to new switch. Wires are kind of short so you have to just pull switch to the side when you remove and replace wires. Make sure new switch is wired like old one. Put switch back in place. Put everything back together in reverse order of removal. Turn power back on and check operation.

My dual zone burner would trip my breaker anytime i tried to turn it on. All the other burners would work fine. I searched online and found a way to test my burner, which was shorted or grounded out. I purchased a new burner from the site...It was as cheap or cheaper than other sites. It showed up a few days quicker than i was expecting..I also replaced the switch to the burner, just as a precaution and to save time since i already had the top glass off of my burners....EASY JOB!
