***** Unplug the stove *****
1. Removed all knobs, including knobs for other elements and exhaust fan. Because there was years of oil build-up, I used a screwdriver to gently pry off the knobs from the shaft.
2. Remove lock nut from all switches using pliers to first loosen the nuts. Once loosened, I used my fingers to remove the nuts.
3. Remove the rubber gaskets from the element switches, NOT the exhaust fan switch. The exhaust knob gasket is part of the larger glass cover-plate gasket.
4. Remove the glass cover plate to expose the switches. There were two phillips screws to secure the switch plate to the electrical box. Took those off to access the switch.
5. Made a quick sketch of the electrical connections.
6. Removed the damaged switch and the electrical connections.
7. Connected electrical wires to new switch and installed new switch.
8. Took the opportunity to thoroughly clean the glass cover plate and gaskets.
9. Screwed the switch plate back onto the electrical box.
10. Put back glass plate and reinserted the knob gaskets.
11. Put back the lock nuts. Used fingers to tighten then used pliers to give it another quarter turn, making sure not to over tighten.
12. Replaced knobs.
13. Plugged in stove and tested.
Start to finish, it took about 15-20 minutes (mostly due to the cleaning).
