Took the trim out of the box, removed the old trim, cleaned up the "guck" left by the old tenant and then screwed in the new piece. VOILA! A NEW LOOKING OVEN. You didn't ask about dealing with your company. THAT'S THE BEST PART. It took less then 10 minutes to speak to someone knowledgeable, figure out the correct model number, locate the part that I needed and place the order. Here comes the most amazing thing: You are in Canada...I am in Pennsylvania. The part arrived 1 day later!! How did you do that? USPS can't even match that service when mailing to my own city. And this was not a Quirk because about a week later, I ordered another part and IT TOO, ARRIVED IN 1 DAY.

You are in my A-List of addresses for anything I need. I can go to you first.

Thanks.

My husband had already removed the back plate form the stove and detached the wires from the old burner switch because it was keeping the burner on. He unscrewed the old switch and removed it. He then popped in the new switch, attached the wires to the correct contacts, and put the back plate back on. We plugged in the stove, and that burner works good as new.

First I cut the circuit at the breaker, and then pulled the range from wall to access the access panel. This top panel was held with 4 screws and removable with a standard phillips head screwdriver.

I then removed the 5 wire-crimped fasteners from the defective surface burner switch. (I first labeled these wires to ensure correct placement to the new switch). There were an additional two screws behind the corresponding knob that needed to be removed in order to completely remove the old switch.

The new switch was installed in reverse order to the steps indicated above (two screws behind knob, 5 wire-crimped fasteners, 4 screws to panel). Range was pushed back into position and breaker turned on.

I was so sick of this drawer and I over heard a buddy telling a story about a website that you can get ANY piece for appliances. I take the drawer out, look up the website (partselect.com) look at the appliance diagram and find the missing piece. Order it, get it, install it. My wife thinks I'm a hero and I think I'm pretty cool too.

First we removed the screws inside the oven. Next, the oven backing was removed by unscrewing one side and one bottom bolt which exposed the clips for the burner. The clips were removed from the old burner. The old burner was pulled through the fiberglass protection and out of the oven. The new burner was inserted into the oven and the prongs were pushed through the fiberglass protection. The screws inside the oven were reattached. The clips were attached on the outside of the oven. The backing was slid into the right holding piece and the bolts on the left and bottom were attached.
