fairly easy to install

One problem I had was wires weren't long enough to get switch panel out far enough to easily work on replacement. I just took I wire from old switch and matched where it went on new switch. I am ordering another switch for another eye on same stove.

Substandard quality part compared to the original

Nice to be able to get an OEM part, but the new part was cheaply made since it seems to fit too many models with plastic clip on parts where strong metal was before. Part works, but instructions not good so not easy to make work.

fairly easy

Took about thirty minutes. Raised the cooktop and removed the panel with the controls. Removed damaged control, disconnected wires. I recommended we wires. Reinstalled control switch. I tested the control, worked well. Lowered cooktop.

Check the other websites too before you order

Pro: It works! This is the most important. It arrived as expected. No issues. Good. Con: Sears charges too much. The same model costs less than half elsewhere. I simply trust Sears and ordered without checking around. Plus, what I received is the cheapest model among all the compatible parts.

Knob adapter didn't work for our knob

Easy to install but the knob adapter doesn't work so we are using plyers to turn the burner on and off.

Either wrong part or wrong instructions

Only a substitute part was available. It was the recommended new substitution part. I received the new part on time. The instructions were clear, but the new part terminal locations did not match the locations in the picture provided in the instructions. Also, the wiring cross reference had terminal names that did not match the terminal names on the back of the new part. Interestingly enough, the picture of the old part was exactly correct. I called Sears Parts Direct and received an RMA from them, took pictures of the new part and emailed them to Sears Parts direct, and returned the new part to them (with free UPS shipping) for a credit to my credit card.
