Product Description

Surface Burner Element Switch, Large Burner 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.

While cooking i lost control of the temperature on the 8" burner, could it be the switch? The temperature went too high and i couldn't turn it down but i could turn it down. Thanks
For model number RF365PXYN2
Hello Bob, thank you for contacting us. It does sound like you would need to replace the switch due to the run away element, that should fix the problem. Hope this helps!

The right front burner on glass cooktop (white circle on black glass measures 10") won't hold temp (gets very hot and fluctuates). I believe the control switch for right front burner (farthest right on control panel) has gone bad, but I'm not sure what replacement switch to get. Can you help? Thanks.

Hello, When I turn the knob on for the large burner, I hear a popping and crackling noise behind the knob (like an electrical arc). Is it the switch that needs replacing? If so what is the part number I need to lookup?
For model number YWFE510S0ES0
Hi Rob, Thank you for your question. If you are hearing a popping sound behind the knob, then the issue is the switch and you will need to replace it. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

When using my large front stove eye, i can have it set on medium heat, and it will turn itself up until the element is red hot. The only way i can make it cooler, is to turn it off and start over again. What could this be ?
For model number WFC310SOAS
Hello Cheryl, thank you for inquiring. This is due to either a faulty Surface Element, part number PS11751367, or Surface Burner Element Switch, part number PS11740783 for your model. Good luck with your repair!

Hi Butch. I believe you are correct it is switch WP3149400. However I have no sources confirming this 100 percent. I recommend contacting the manufacturer directly to verify. Thank you for your question and good luck with your repair!

Hello i need to order a replacement surface burner element switch for this Whirlpool electric range (see model number) because it sounds like it is arcing when it turns the burner on and off. What i am not sure about is whether the larger dual burner elements have a different switch from the smaller burners. The switch that i need is for the right front burner that measures

Large non-dual front burner began to lose temperature control and ultimately stopped working. What is the likely problem? Thanks.
For model number WFE361LVS0
Hi Ken, Thank you for the question. I would first check the switch for continuity and if the switch is good you may need to replace the element its self. Hope this helps!

Hello, I need a replacement switch for the large burner on my range for model number YWFE510S0ES0. The website is only listing a 8 inch switch. Is this switch used for both the small and large burner?
For model number YWFE510S0ES0
Hi Rob, Thank you for your question. There would be a switch for the dual burner, the 8 inch burner and the 6 inch burner. The part number listed under your model number for the dual burner switch is PS11754687, the part number listed for the 8 inch burner switch is PS11740783 and the part number listed for 6 inch burner switch is PS11740785.

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.

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

2nd 8 inch burner switch in a little over a year to not always hold selected tempurature.
As a former appliance repairman, the installation went just like the repair instruction video.
Just use care not to scratch anything and clean behind the appliance and cabinet walls, etc. It's worth a hug and a piece of pie!
