Product Description

Surface Burner Element Switch - 8 Inch Specifications

This surface burner element switch is for an 8-inch surface burner on an oven, stove, or range. The element switch controls the heat of the surface burner. Disconnect power to your range before completing this repair because you will be working closely with electrical circuits. Remove the screws from back panel and the console, and remove the console to expose the switch. It is recommended to check for overheating or arcing on the wiring harness in case they need to be replaced as well. The harness that connects to the switch features a slip-on terminal for easy installation.

Burner would go high without warning
We felt the only possible problem could be the switch assembly. I removed the switch panel, removed the wires from the old switch, one at a time, removed the old switch assembly and installed the new switch assembly. The extended stem did have to be snapped off (per your instructions) and that too was a very simple task.

8" Burner element intermittent, unable to control.
Easy.... UNPLUG THE STOVE FROM THE 240 VOLT OUTLET & READ THE DIRECTIONS THAT COME WITH THE NEW PART !! Removed upper rear cover panel 8 screws & removed panel, removed knob & 2 screws from front of control unit (on the control panel), pulled the control off the panel from the rear, removed the wires on the rear of control & connected them to the SAME terminals on the new control (one at a time). Then installed the new control by reversing the procedure above. Took about 15 minutes. IMPORTANT HINTS: 1) Make sure you save the little black pressure clip from the control stem on the new control, if you need to break-off the little part at the end of the stem. You will need to push the clip back into the recess on the new stem, in order for the knob to stay on the stem when you put it back on; 2) Use a needle-nose plier to pull the wire clips from the old control terminals & push them onto the same terminals on the new control, one at a time so the wiring is correct.

1 Of 4 Electric Burner Would Not Heat.
To fix our whirlpool electric range burner, I followed the following steps: 1. Read the owner's manual and parts list. 2. Disassemble and inspect to determine cause - bad burner or bad switch. 3. Order replacement switch on line from partselect, and wait for delivery. 4. Replace and test. Switch appeared to be mechanically defective in that it would not rotate freely, and would not turn on affected burner. 5. A. Obtained return instructions from partselect and mailed return to part select on may 9, 2008. At this writing (may 16th) nothing heard from partselect. 5. B. Concurrently, visited local appliance shop and purchased another replacement switch. 6. Installed and tested 2nd replacement switch. Test results satisfactory. 7. Returned the range to full normal service. To make this repair from start to finish, including time awaiting receipt of parts ordered from smartselect - 5 days. At this writing (16 may) I have not heard from smartselect regarding credit for the return of the defective swithch. Hollie tiedemann - virginia beach, va

Burner would go red hot once and awhile
removed drawer below oven, reached under stove and unplugged from outlet, pulled stove out from between cabinets, removed the 8 screws with 5/16 nutdriver from back panel and removed the panel, removed knob from switch , measured length of stem on old switch and compared it to the new switch ( my old switch stems was shorter than the new one so using a pair of pliers I shortened stem per instructions that came with new switch, this was very easy to do ), removed the two screws holding switch to stove and removed the old switch, then I transfered one wire at a time from the old switch to the new one until I had all the wires connected to the new one, used same two screws holding old switch to the stove to mount the new switch to the stove and put knob from old switch onto the new one, installed back panel to stove using the same 8 screws, pushed stove back into place between the cabinets and plugged the stove into the outlet, put drawer back in place below oven door, reset clock and tried out the new switch, so far so good only time well tell if I fixed my problem because it only happens once in awhile
