I have to replace burnercontrol switch #AP4368336. What is the corect procedure? I removed all the screws & the control panel will not move. Please advise.
Answer Hello Chris. You will need to remove the knobs, and remove the large plastic nuts under them. Once removed, the panel will lift off. Hope this helps.

The diagram on your page shows the controls on the rear of the stove. My stove has all of the controls on the front of the stove. Are the parts shown the same for both ranges?
Answer Hello Tom,
The illustration that your model number brings up shows the control panel that is in the front. I'm not sure why they called it the backguard since it should be listed as the control panel. The parts listed will fit your model.

Answer Hello Jon,
To replace switch you will want to pull unit out. Unplug unit. Remove the rear panel over the control board. Pull knob for switch to be replaced off. Remove 2 screws holding switch in place. Remove one wire at a time and put on new switch. Screw new switch onto control panel and reinstall.
I am trying to install this switch. This is supposed to be for the front left burner. I need to know how to wire this up. I believe this may be different than the original one.
Answer Hello Armand. Sears doesn't support the wiring diagrams so I would recommend looking for the wiring diagram on the unit. It will either be on the back of the unit or you may have to pull the drawer out and look at either the back, side, or bottom of the drawer. some are under the unit where in the drawer opening behind the drawer or off to the side. Of course the ideal way to change it is one wire at a time, putting the wires to the terminal marked the same way the terminal on the old switch. Sorry I couldn't help any more. Good luck and have a great day!
