My issue ended up being more than just the burner, but it was all an easy repair. For about a year the "hot surface" light would stay on long after the cooktop had cooled. Then one day the burner just stopped working. (More on that later but my inexperience led me to just order the burner assuming that was the only problem) The burner I removed was not necessarily bad but the temp sensing element which was made of glass had shattered presumably the reason that light would never turn off. I might have been able to just replace the temp sensing probe but I had the new burner in hand and needed my stove up and running. Two screws hold down the glass surface, then you can raise it just like a car hood. Used a piece of wood to prop it up, there is a brace holding the burners in place. You need to take out the pair to access the burner you want to replace. Make note of the holes everything is screwed/clipped in to so the new one goes in exactly the same. There is a great video on youtube I found when searching for "Frigidaire burner replacement" that was step bystep exactly what i encountered on my repair. Once i got the new burner in I was surprised to find it didn't light. I used an ohm meter to test everything and it all looked good at the burner. I pulled the top back panel behind my controls and found a corroded and broken wire on the controls for that burner. My guess is all that time of that probe being broken caused there to be current through that line and fried the wire. Either way it was a quick splice and the new burner fired right up and has been working great ever since. I was especially happy that the new temp probe was metal and not glass so I hopefully don't run into this problem again.
