    Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
    The simmer switches had failed in the simmer ON position and the 2 burners would not heat up higher than simmer
    I pulled the range away from the wall enough to reach the back. There is a small access panel on the back of the control panel at the top of the range. It removes with 3 phillips head screws. Once removed, the back of the switch is accessible. Simply pinch the 2 snaps on the side of the switch and push it out through the front of the panel. Remove the 3 wires from the failed switch and install them on the new switch. It isn't obvious which way the switch installs and I'm not sure it matters. But there is stamped writing on the switch that will help orient it. Then simply push the switch back in place until the snaps catch and install the access panel.

    Switch burnt out/Lens broken
    Removed the three screws holding on the back plate and removed plate.

    Popped out the switch and used the pliers to pull off the wires. Connected the wires to the new switch.

    Popped out the broken light. Slid the new lens into the front panel. Slid the light housing onto the new lens.

    Re-attached the back plate.
