    It is a Whirlpool. Does the 3149400 replace the 3148953 for the 8 inch element control?
    For model number YIES350XW1
    Hi Ken, Thank you for your question. Part number 3149400 does not replace part number 3148953. The part number listed under your model number for the 8 inch burner switch is WP3148953, which replaces part number 3148953. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

    Is this part number the same for large burner and small burners . Will it shut off my cooktop light indicator which stays on all the time . Thank you
    For model number Wfc150moewo Electric range
    Hello and thank you for writing. Small 6 inch burner PS11740785 Large burner PS11740775. After installation of the new switch, we suggest to try a hard reset: Go to your breaker box and shut the breakers for your unit off, wait 5 minutes and then turn the breaker to on again. That should hopefully clear this problem of the indicator light. We hope this helps. Please contact us anytime if you require further assistance.

    The 8" front right burner gets warm, but will not glow red. It also will not get hot enough to boil water in a pot. Could it be the limiter, or perhaps the infinite switch?
    For model number KERI203PWH3
    Hello Greg, thank you for your question. The issue could be with either of those parts. We would recommend testing the switch first to determine the issue. Here is a link that will provide information on testing that part. https://www.partselect.com/Range-Stove-Oven+Infinite-Switch-Testing+repair.htm I hope this helps!

    The knob on my stove that goes to the front 8 in burner pops and sizzles and smells like wires are burning. What could be the problem? It heats up but afraid to use it with it making that noise. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks so much

    My 8" burner has no temperature control; when i turn it on, it is high only. I have researched that the element control switch needs to be replaced, but i have found two 8" switches for this model range. What is the difference between part# wp3149400 and wp3148953?
    For model number ACR4303MFW
    Hello David, Thank you for your question. The correct switch for your model is under part WP3149400. Part wp3148953 is the same part, but this switch is not compatible to your model. Hope this helps!

    If i replace the switch that activates the burner, will the stove turn on? Cause only one burner burned. Not the all of them
    For model number RF302BXDW0
    Hello Carlos, Thank you for the question. If it is just the one burner not working then replacing the switch or the element should fix the issue. If none of the burners are working you may have more issues within the appliance. I suggest starting with the wiring for burn marks or defects. Hope this helps, good luck with this repair!

        The burner would keep heating after turning off the switch
        Start by turning off the power to the range.
        It was fairly easy to take the "Control Deck" off the top of the range by removing about 8 screws. I leaned the deck forward without removing any wires except a green ground that was held on by one of the screws.
        There are two small screws under the switch knob holding the Infinite Switch to the panel. I removed these and let the switch hang on the wires. To avoid missplacing or crossing the wires... I moved one wire at a time to the new switch, then attached the switch to the panel and put it all back together.
        Whole job was done in about 15 minutes

        The 8-inch burner only heated on high regardless of the temperature setting dialed in.
        Unplugged stove from electrical outlet. Pulled temperature control dial off by hand. Remove screws to top back stove panel with Phillips screwdriver. Removed top stove back panel. Unscrewed broken infinity switch from stove. Unclipped wiring harness to broken switch by prying loose with flat head screw driver. Reclipped wiring harness to new switch. Screwed replacement switch back onto stove. Reattached back panel with screws.

        Burned out wires and 2 switches.
        Unscrewed the switches and let the switch hang while replacing one wire at a time. Followed instructions on wire replacement. Exact parts, only shaft on 6" switch was too long -- okay, because it is designed to break off a piece on end of shaft, then the knob fit. Everything was perfect.

        Burner would randomly overheat on any setting (Bad Control Switch)
        1) Unplug stove.
        2) Remove back cover of the stove held in place by 8 screws (4 short ones for the upper holes and 4 longer ones for the lower holes.).
        3) Remove the knob from the switch that you are replacing to expose
        the switch mounting screws (2 screws).
        4) Remove the screws.
        5) Go to the rear of the stove and extract the defective switch.
        6) You will see 2 plastic plugs going into/onto the switch. Remove the
        plugs. MAKE SURE YOU ARE UNPLUGGED FROM THE
        Wall OUTLET!! A small flat blade may be needed to separate the
        plugs from switch.
        7) Attach the plugs to the new switch (there is only one way to do it.
        you wont get them confused and put on wrong.
        8) Put the new switch where the defective one was.
        9) Come to the front of the stove and put your two screws in and
        replace the knob.
        10) Replace the back cover,
        11) Plug in and test burner.
