I watched the video, purchased the correct heating element and did the repair as illustrated in the video. I simply removed the cook top, removed the ground wire, removed the wiring harness, removed the failed heating element, installed the new heating element and reinstalled the wiring. Piece of cake!

We had been missing it for years. Perhaps it melted, maybe the dog. Anyway, Home Depot didnt have the match. I order the exact knob, received it in a very timely manner. Took it out of the package, and without any tool, placed it it it rightful spot. My wife is happy now. Thanks for helping me.

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!

I can't believe how easy this was to fix. 1. Unplug the stove. 2. remove the screws that hold the stove top in place. 3. pull the top up, unplug the electrical wires and unscrew the ground wire 4. remove the stove top and flip it over. 4. unscrew braces holding the burners in place. 5. with pliers, remove the wire connections between stove top and old burners 6. replace with new burners. 7. reattach everything. And you're done! Go brag to the neighbors about what you just did.

unscrew 3 screws under the control panel and pull that away from the glass top making sure the wires don't come apart from the connectors. care fully slide the glass forward and replace the burner which was the easy part. DO NOT try to test without making sure that none of the burner are touching the metal surface!!!!!!!! it will trip your breaker. But now we have a range with 4 burner after a year THANKS

The range top came off with two screws under the front portion of the glass top (by the oven door). I unplugged the connection plugs at the rear off the range top, unscrewed the rear screws holding the heating unit in place and plugged in new element and reassembled range unit. You need to removed the two phillip head screws at the rear of the range top in order to remove the bar holding the heating element. Once you do this it is very easy to finish the job.

To replace the switch I had to disconnect the current, un-connect the metal exhaust duck work and lift the entire unit from the countertop. Very heavy unit to lift up and out. The entire unit is attached to the glass top by screwed on metal hanger strip. Once the glass top is removed the switches can be accessed under a metal cover. This disconnect can't be done while mounted in countertop. No problem installing new switch and reinstalling countertop. This was a real inconvenient design. Should have been access from the bottom of the unit.

Fan Switch Cap Snapped Off

Got a new fan switch. Removed the heater dials. Disconnected exhaust tube from blower (it was sealed with aluminum tape). Lifted cooktop straight out of the counter-top, rotated it a little so that it would rest on a pair of 2x10's I set at the extreme corners of the counter-top cutout. After that it was real simple - unscrew the tangs from the sheet metal. Then use a screw driver and gently pop the glass free of the sheet metal housing. Once the glass is off, unscrew the control panel cover and rotate it over. The switch is mounted with a jam nut - remove that and disconnect the cables. Reverse the process with the new switch. Only beef I had was the housing sent by part select was damaged, so I had to swap the electrical innards to get the thing to work. It took 60 minutes and most of the time was spent cleaning the baked on food off the cooktop and countertop. Had to use a razor blade to scrape the crud off. Actual repair without cleaning was 20 minutes.
