To access the switches for replacement, first unplug the oven or flip the breaker off. Next, pull the knobs off the the switch shafts. There is a nut below each knob. Unscrew these 4 locking nuts. Now the top part of the control panel just pulls up and off. After that, you'll see a sheet metal bracket which the switches mount to as well as the display board. Unscrew the sheet metal bracket and then you can unscrew the switch and replace it.
