Removed stove top from the counter. Removed the glass frame and glass from the top. Removed the broken switch. Replaced with the new switch. Reassembled the unit and replaced it in the counter top.

One problem is the switch only fits in the space one way because of the first burner light. When installed the only way the knob fits on the switch stem makes the dot on the knob backwards. It now shows to be on medium speed when it is off.

I used needlenose pliers to remove part left on shaft, regular pliers are too big. The original part had a metal insert so there was some rust and build-up on the shaft. I cleaned it with WD40. The new knob took a good bit of hand pressure to install.

Lift off blower vent cover. Lift out old filter. Clean walls and bottom of down draft using degrease soap and warm water. Dry. Discovered my grease filter will not install diagonally as shown in unit manual. Decided to drop into downdraft and put in front of fan suction. Found this left a gap at the top of fan suction that was not covered by the filter. Cut piece of wood 1 inch thick and width and length to drop down in the downdraft and lay on bottom. Set filter on top of wood in front of the fan suction. Verified that fan suction would pull filter tight against the opening by turning fan on and off. Put vent cover back over downdraft and told wife I was done.
