Oven sparked and switched off circuit breaker.
Turned off power at circuit breaker.
There is a panel on the underside of the stove top with four hex head screws. Removed it to give access to the switches beneath the knobs. A socket set was useful here.
Identified the switch that was shorting. Detached the wires connected to that switch. They are all quick connects, but some are tight so pliers helped here. (It is a good idea to keep track of which wire is supposed to go where. Also there is a wiring diagram available somewhere on this site.)
Removed the switch by taking out the knob on the top and loosening the two Philips screws on either side of the switch stem. The switch came out easily after that.
Put in the new switch, reattached with the Philips screws, and replaced the wire connection. Replaced panel and turned power back on.
Turned on burners to ensure proper operation.
