Called an authorized Kitchenaid service technician after ordering part. This was the second time this switch has required replacement so we saved time and money by ordering the part in advance from PartSelect. The trickiest part of the repair was separating the ceramic top from the rest of the cooktop. Had we attempted to do this ourselves, we would have given up at that point. I would only recommend this as a do-it-yourself repair if you are intimately familiar with how these cooktops are put together. It is fairly easy to break the ceramic top if you're not.

Got Model and SN, went on line and located correct part. Ordered part, arrived in 3 days. Started repair by turning off power to stovee top. Got putty knife and went around edge to loosen stove top to raise and het to underside to dismantle cover. Used battery drill to remove screws on cover. After accessing and removing top and bottom, removed 2 screws, changed one wire at a time and replaced on new switch, reassembled in reverse, turned on power and happily watched burner come to life with new switch.

Only hitch I experienced was identifying the correct replacement. The original diagram presented the accurate shape of the element my range required. However a different shaped element was displayed when I noted my unit is a series 12 serial number. I ordered it (with reservations) and as it turned out the replacement was identical to mine. Next time I will have a lil more confidence in the instructions given.

Important to unplug the appliance first. There were two screws which were at the top opening of the oven. They were a bit obscure, but with a bit a searching, I was able to find them. After removing those two screws, the entire top lifted up. There were four screws from the bottom of that assembly which were easy to find, and once removed, the top lifted of easily. I found it easier to remove the two power lines with two easy disconnects, this made it easier to work on the assembly. The element itself was held down by two simple clamps which required no tools. There were four easy to remove wires, and the element came right off. Simply reversing the process put it right back together, plug it in, and back to cooking again.

Turned the breaker off. Removed the glass cook top and removed the screws holding the cook glass to the metal burner case. Followed easy instructions removing one wire at a time and placing on the new switch. Put the glass top back on and installed screws. Placed back in the hole and turned the breaker on. Works like new.

Had this range for 6 years. My daughter turned on the burner and it went "pop". She was very upset. I found the best price at PartSelect, and ordered the same day.

the first burner arrived broken in the box. We contacted PartSelect, and they immediately sent another and rushed shipping. It arrived in excellent condition.

To replace the unit: First, I turned off the circuit breaker for the range. Then I removed the two Philips screws that held the cooktop down. Next I removed the nut screws holding the burner to the cooktop.

Then I placed the new burner next to the old one, and one by one swapped the wires (this way I was sure I had the right wire on the right connector). One of the wire connectors broke when removing it from the old burner. PartSelect had provided 4 repacement connector pieces (oddly, all of which were too small for the burner element). So I located a replacement connector at a local hardware store. Stripped the end of the wire and used pliers to fasten the new connector.

After all connectors were secured to the new burner, I screwed the burner to the cooktop, then closed the cooktop and secured it with the two screws.

Turned on the circuit breaker, and it works like new! Saved over $100 by doing it myself!

Unplugged the power cord first. Opened oven door and removed the two screws that held the stove top glass down. Lifted the glass top and removed the four wires connected to the element. I taped the wires to the lid in the pattern they were attached to the element. remove the element from the brackets. The new element was an exact match. reversed the sequence. Put a pot of water on and boiled a hot dog! Perfect! Great part and speedy delivery!!

first I checked continuity through the surface element (burner) switch (rheostat) which was fine. then found the screws holding the burner top on and removed, this made it possible to lift up the burner top and remove the burnt out surface element.which was easy to see. take down the number, buy a new one and re hook up the four wires to the new element. (always mark down where the wires went)
