First I removed the old damaged knobs by pulling upward on the knobs. Then I replaced the damaged knobs with the new knobs being careful to align the male and female connection. After installation I tested each burner for proper operation. As a final test, I asked my wife for her opinion. We're happy!

Unscrewed burner assembly and removed wire. Unable to remove electrode screw. Striped head of screw. Tried penetrating oil but no luck. Tried to drill and use easy out bit but ruined burner assembly and had to order new burner assembly. When assembly came it had electrode in place but website does not show electrode with assembly except on one burner. With mail and all it took about a week to fix 2 burners. Returned unused electrode for credit. Overall, cheaper then a service call by far.

There is really nothing to replace a stove knob. What I was impressed with was the speed in which the knobs came to my house, the very next day from the day I ordered them.
Thanks a ton!

Should have read the partselect instructions first 1.) unplugged range 2.) unscrewed (torque screws - good thing I had some) burners - one screw was corroded into the top and snapped - will require a drill to remove and replace metal screw. 3) slid electrical wire from contact 4.) unscrewed (with phillips) Burner Electrode assembly (also corroded - took some force) replaced electrode assy and reversed steps. Works perfect.

Remove the burner cover to reach the burner assembly. From the top of the cooktop you will see 2 screws holing the burner assembly. Using a T drive (6 point screwdriver)remove both screws and the burner assembly will come out of the cook top. Using a phillips head screw driver, remove the old ignitor from the burner assembly. Mine was galled up, so I had to use some penetrating oil and let it sit for a half hour. I then used a hammer and a phillips head screwdriver to tap the screw as I twisted to un-tightened the screw. Once it broke loose, I placed the new ignitor and reassembled the burner into the stove.
