This part fixes the following symptoms:
1. Flipped breaker and confirmed no power at cooktop. 2. Removed the Fan grille and removed the two screws holding on the control panel. It tilts up and out to the rear. 3. Unscrewed the 2 screws on top holding old switch to panel.4. Disconnected the wiring one lead at a time and connected it to the new switch in the same spot. There are 5 wires total and I carefully used needle nose pliers to remove reluctant wires and to adjust connectors if they were loose on new switch5. Screwed the new switch onto the panel and screwed the panel back onto the cooktop. 6. Tested new switch...worked great.

I've ordered parts from you twice now, and both times the service has been absolutely amazing!!!!! Now, on to how I did this without fire or electrocution:Turned off breakers.Grabbed a beer.Removed two screws holding in plate.Removed electrical connectors.Removed two screws holding switch.Put new switch in place with screws.Reattached connectors.Reseated plate & screws.Turned on power & tested.Finished beer and felt very manly.The hardest part was getting the plate to re-seat.
Very simple---shut off the power, removed six screws, detached five wires, replaced control switch, put everything back together, turned on power and made husband happy!!!
Well I was just guessing the controll switch was bad so I ordered a new one. So I cut off the power and held the switch close to the old one and changed the wires one at a time matching the connection terminals and cut the power back on and presto it WORKED..The service man wanted to charge me 65.00 dollars just to check it out. I figure I saved about 100.00 dollers plus I learned something.
Un screwed the two screws in the downdraft section enough to release the unit that holds the surface burner controls.Then removed the control nob, unscrewed the two screws that holds the switch in the unit, removed the wires, making sure the color of the wires were placed on the same contact point. Put it back together and it worked fine.Of course I did shut off the power before starting any of the above
We followed the instructions on the video after receiving our part - they were perfect instructions and led us right through the repair. I have to say it would have been harder to do with one person - but probably doable.
First I moved the left rear burner to the right front. No change. Then I moved the burner units from left to right, No change. I guessed it was the control switch and ordered from PartSelect. Turnaround time from PartSelect was excellent.I turned off the powerr to the range. Removed the screws holding on the front panel and then pulled the panel out far enough to see behind it. I located the faulty control switch and then held the new switch, next to it, and turning to proper orientation. I then, one at a time moved the wires to the new switch. After that it was mount the new switch, put the panel back in place and turn on the power.
replaced switchs and cartridge, looks like bland new for spending 350 instead of new one for 1500. thank you for the parts i needed it.
