Dual Switch Amana Part # 0309550 is no longer available. Opted for this part. YOU MUST ALSO GET KSWITCH KNOB AS OLD ONE WILL NOT WORK Both burners are on but who cares. Better than spending $800 on a new cooktop. Turn off power. Push up top from underneath or carefully pry up top with screw driver. Top has sticky seal around rim so may require a little force. Put short piece of wood pieces across each corner to hold cooktop up. Remove all screws from around edge. Remove ceramic top. DO NOT TOUCH BURNERS Remove 2 scres on each end of switch panel. In order to lift out you must remove 2 screws on frame corner and 2 screws THAT hold burner support on frame. You can then lift up switch panel. Remove 2 screws holding OLD switch to panel. Remove wires from switch. MAKE SURE YOU PUT NEW WIRES IN SAME POSITION AS OLD SWITCH. Reverse to reassemble. Carefully test the burners before putting on the cooktop. Remmber to turn off power before putting on cooktop. NOTE: CHECK ORIENTATION OF SWITCH (COULD BE 180 DEGRESS) OFF. MAKE SURE KNOB OFF POSITION IS CORRECT.
First I removed the two screws that held the switch in place and disconnected the five different wires to the device. Then I connected the five wires back in there same locations on the new part and placed it back into the mounting slot / hole. Then put the two screws back to hold it in place. Put the range's back cover back on and connected it back to the power supply box under the cabinet. Turned the breaker back on and turned the new burner knobs on high and got the red glow from the burners and the red indication lights from the range. Yeah, back in service just in time for Thanksgiving cooking. (Changed out 2 burner controls and replaced the hole covers on the switch knobs) Complete project. Thanks
