    What is the difference between the two burner receptacle block kits listed? Part 741 and 961 on the diagram
    For model number rb757wh1ww
    Hello Chris, Thank you for your inquiry. 741 part# WB2X8228 is just the receptacle with wires, and 961 part# WB17T10006 is a more complete kit with the actual terminal block, additional wires and the mounting clips. Hope this helps!

    My burner went to red hot on low. Do I need just the receptacle with wires and will this fix my problem?
    For model number RB525V4
    Hello Sharon, Thanks for your question. This typically arises due to a faulty infinite switch, part number PS235991. We would advise testing the part with a multimeter to see if it has electrical continuity and replacing it if it shows no continuity. I hope this helps.

    The oven heats and broils but none of the 4 burners work on the stovetop. What could be the problem?
    For model number JBS27WC1WW
    Hello Stanley, Thank you for the question. If none of the cooktop elements are working I would suggest checking the wiring. Since there is not one part that controls all the top elements, it sounds like a wiring issue. Hope this helps, good luck with this repair!

    My maintenance guy replaced burner receptacle today. It is not recessed back far enough for the burner to fit back into place. The new receptacle clearly does not match the other 3 burners. The old receptacles are deeper with horizontal grooves that slice down the middle of the plug in slots which are vertical. I have a part number of wb2x8228. Is this the deeper receptacle with the horizontal grooves. I need to make sure i'm giving the right part number to the maintenance guy so he can get the right on in there. The new receptacle is too shallow with no horizontal grooves in it.
    For model number R B525 V1AD
    Hello Joy, thank you for contacting us. The correct Terminal Block Kit is PS232636.

    Part 741 and 961, if 961 is more complete kit, why it even cheaper than 741 which is only the terminal & wire. Does wire factory pre-connected to the terminal on 961 ?
    For model number JBP21BC3WH
    Hello Barry, thank you for writing. The Kits only contain enough parts to replace one Element Terminal Block each. They are for different Surface Elements on your range. The larger Surface Elements use part number PS242972, and the smaller Surface Elements use part number PS783534. Good luck with your repair!

      The Bake-o-lite (Hard Plastic) block that holds the burners female connection in place had chipped away over time and wouldn't allow the male part of the burner to connect up correctly.
      After unplugging the range I took the rear sheet metal panel at the top off with a nut driver to expose the wiring connections. The next step was to remove the single screw holding the old part in place. (under the drip pan) Once free I snipped the old part from the wires and then taped the new female ends to the old wires with black electrical tape. From rear I carfully pulled the old wires through the back until I could reach the new wiring connections. Unplugged old, plugged in new and replaced the rear metal cover. Then I put the screw that holds the new block bracket in place, replaced drip pan, and burner. The final step was to plug the range back in and check to see if the burner worked. It did and I was done. Approx. 5 minutes

      Front burner would not heat up
      1. Pull out range and unplug from socket.
      2. Lift range lid.
      3. Remove back panel. Loosen the 6 - 1/4" nuts, then lift up slightly, which compresses the "latch" at the top middle. Let down and panel comes off easily.
      (Note: Do not remove wires yet)
      4. Remove control knob from front panel by pulling gently, exposing 2 small tap screws
      5. unscrew the 2 small tap screws, freeing the switch.
      6. NOTE THE EXISTING WIRING! Each terminal has a letter. Take a photo or drawing for reference, because the new switch's post locations were not the same as the old.
      7. In my case I had to replace the terminal block kit with a new one. (don't try the aftermarket one's at Home Depot...bad idea event though they say Hotpoint) so I ran those wires first. Easy removal of old, only one wire clip, then fish the wires through. Secure with tap screw at burner location.
      8. Hook up the wires. The ones coming from the burner don't seem to matter which one goes to which post but make sure you're replacing them on the posts that the original were on. What I did was just unhook the old posts one at a time and find the corresponding letter on the new one.
      9. Break off stem at length of old switch with pliers. make sure you find where off and on are on the switch. Orient the off at the top, then push through from back of range.
      10. Screw the 2 tap screws in, securing the switch.
      11. Place the orange retainer oriented with flat side the same as the knob, and push the knob back in place.
      12. Close lid, replace back panel
      13. Insert drip pan/burner into terminal block and secure in drip pan. If your burner plugs are corroded or exposed, replace the burner as it will short out.
      14. Plug in to socket and test before pushing range back into place.

      Burner was not working and the local appliance store could not locate a part so I decided to repair it myself
      I easily removed the element, then the socket I followed the wiring down beneath the drip pan to where it plugged into the control knob. I simply unplugged the old part and plugged in the new socket, rerouted the wires and assembled the stove top with a new burner in place.

      Terminal block melted
      First I unplugged the stove, then lifted the stovetop, then took off the top panel on the back and disconnected the two wires. Then unscrewed the terminal block and put the new one in its place. Lowered the top inserted the eye and replaced the back panel. Works great!

      This is the second time in a few months that I replaced this terminal block, so I made sure the contacts were clean and smooth. I also made sure the contacts were completely inserted in the block.

      Burner terminal block unstable due to corrosion; potential electrical fire hazard
      This appeared to be an easy fix, but turned out to be more involved than I planned. The hard part was pulling the range/microwave oven assembly away from the wall so I could remove the back panel and see how the new terminal block wires connected up to the switch/knob that operates the burner. Extracting the whole range unit required me to use a floor jack to raise the leveling feet of the range above the edge of my floor tile so I could slide the unit out. Once away from the wall, I used a nut driver to remove the back panels. Next surprise was the new terminal block wire connectors were not the same type as the old block's connectors (flat vs. male pin-type). Rather than let the scope of this job creep to include a whole new connector rig, I opted to splice the new terminal block wires onto the existing wires that led up to the control knob. I used professional splices and a crimping tool to secure the wires. After checking the new installation was sound and operational, I slid the whole range back into place. Attaching the new terminal block to the range top was a piece of cake, but getting the damn oven out into open space where I could work on it was bear. But, hey, I learned a few things, one of which is that when a homeowner decides to retile their kitchen, make sure you run the new tiles all the way under the range and not just up to the front edge of the oven. I can see why this was done - to avoid having to remove the oven during the retiling - but it creates an obstacle for whenever the oven needs to be pulled away from its location. The last tool I imagined I would need for this repair was a car jack. The Parts Select part worked fine.

      wire burned on surface terminal block
      I am a 62 y/o single female and was able to make this exchange of parts with ease. The toughest was getting the old terminal's wire clips free from years of gunk! I was pleased with the ease of installation and that it really worked afterwards. By the way, thank you Parts Select for getting this part to me very quickly. If a novice can diagnose, find the correct part and install it with success then anyone could do the same.
