As an arthritic 83 yr old I had a little trouble removing the two screws holding old element but with penetrating oil and channel locks on the screwdriver for leverage that problem was solved. Installation of new element was a snap, a matter of minutes to connect the element spades to the wire contacts and relace the two screws holding the element to the oven cabinet.To remove the old switch I removed the four screws holding the control panel (Oven door must be open to get at screws)Removing the old switch took a few more minutes as with age of the unit the male spade contacts of the switch were tight on the female wire contacts and I carefully used needle nose pliers to free them. I quickly learned not to remove the two screws holding the switch to the panel until the switch spades were free from the female wire contacts. Installation of the new switch was easy. I replaced the panel with four screws, checked everything, reset the circuit breaker and I was back in business.
Easy as Pie.
Replaced one of the four burner control switches on my Jennair cooktop. One of the tricks I use to prevent mistakes is putting the new switch along side the existing one and swap one connector at a time over to the new switch preventing any confusion and negating any need to mark the wires. This differs from your video assistant who disconnected all the wires at once.gc.
It was easy enough I unplugged the stove. removed the screws under the control panel,removed the panel, removed the two screws holding the switch in place. moved the electrical wires from the old switch and placed them on the new switch. put it all back together in the reverse order.it took greater than 15 minutes as this is the first time I did any work on my stove and wanted to be careful and not dismantle too much or scratch anything.
1. Turn off power at breaker. Take no chances. Turn on each working burner, fan, oven light to be sure there is no power to the appliance. Then, turn them off.2. Pull knob on switch straight out to remove.3. Remove 4 Phillips head screws under control panel. Pull panel gently down, then out toward you slightly to release top edge. Rest control panel on self-clean lock knob.4. Confirm terminals on new switch match up with old switch.5. Use needle-nose pliers to gently remove wires from old switch one at a time and place them on the corresponding terminal on new the switch.6. Reverse steps 3, 2 and 1. Test switch and burner.

Removed top and front panel
replaced stove top switch
I remove fore screwsfrom the front panel. Then remove two screws to remove the switch and removed the wire plugs then put everything back together again.
I removed two screws that held the switch plate together. Then I removed two screws that held the faulty switch to the swtich plate. I then unpluged one wire at a time from the old switch and pluged it into the new switch. Reattached the switch to the switch plate and then reattached the switch plate to the stovetop. Bingo! Everything worked beautifully. It was so easy and I saved ~ $100.00 by doing it myself, as opposed to a quote that I got from a local repairman.
Really easy ...followed advice posted from others with same problem. Before anything disconnect the power at the breakers and use a voltage detector to verify there is NO POWER!!!! Only need to remove the two phillips screws on the four controller panel, Slide panel away from you to access the controllers. Match wire/connector for connector from the old to new controller. Reassemble, restore power .. Happy wife!!!. She has been on my case to fix this thing for several years.
Remove cover plate, install new switch, replace cover place. Replace one wire at a time, a pair of needle nose pliers may be helpful. Surprise of this job was that I had a torque screw driver (I think that's what it's called) to remove the switch from the cover plate. These are the screws you'll see after removing the knob. Find that driver before you begin, mine was in the garage and for the life of me, I can't remember why I ever had one in the first place.Thanks for a great web site!
Followed instructions, once saw and how to replace and replug wires as the instructions it was easy as per your instructions
