I carefully removed the disgusting old filter and took straight to trash. I then used my wet/dry vacuum to clean the rest of the loose debris from the area where the filter area is located. I used a clean, dry cloth to wipe the remainder of the material away and then carefully lowered the clean new filter down into it's new home. So easy, it took longer to type out these directions :)

I simply watched the video on the PartSelect site. That made the repair easy and fast. It took perhaps 5 minutes to bring the stove back to life again.

used a multimeter to determine that power was going to the surface burner infinite switch. then determined that power was not going from the output side of the switch to the burner element. Turned power to range off at the breaker box. Removed eight screws total on range top, four on the cartridge side, two located on back of control plate where the downdraft vent is located and two on the double fixed burner side. Raised the range top to gain access to the infinite switch assemblies. Removed to TORX head screws retaining the infinite switch and then disconnected the five wires on the bottom one at a time, making sure to replace in the exact location on the new switch. Installed TORX screws in the new switch and installed all screws back into range top. reinstalled cartridge and burners and turned power back on. Tested rear burner and all functioned properly.

thanks to the PartsSelect website, I discovered that the problem was not that I needed an all new cooktop (none of which I like - either the looks or the price) BUT that perhaps the elements needed replacing .... so now I am back in business ... actually ordered both 6" and 8" but only needed the 8" ... returned the 6". Thoroughly happy w/Parts Select ...
