Re-design's awnser was the best one, but i cant select it because it's a reply, and when i do it, i'll add resistors in there so this won't happen again.

maybe I should just get a normal breadboard like everyone else. the thing i have does have a breadboard, but many components are located under panels with holes to see or adjust them

When I burnt out a LED I went to Radioshack, and bought a new one. $1.49

It looks like you will have to de-solder it from the panel and re-solder a new one on. There is a better buy at radioshack, depending on the color of the LED you want, they have a 20-pack of LEDs for $2.99 (Red, Yellow, Green, Amber Colored Only). I actually bought two of these packs today. Best of luck!

no, i mean it is in a kit and a panel is over it with a hole to let light through and springs to attach wires to it on the front

Can you post a picture? I don't quite understand what you mean.

Solder the new one on top of the panel with the leads going to the correct spring if you can't get in to place it inside like the original.

You'll have to get the panel off. Once you've done that it should be obvious to you.
