When i turn the burner on low, it gets very hot, as if i set it to medium high or high. Seems like no regulation
For model number gjc3034

Is this part what i need for a burner that stays on high and will not turn down in heat? Do i need the whole kit or just one part?
For model number KECC507GBL0
Hi Melissa, Thank you for your question. Yes, if your burner is heating higher than it should then you will need to replace the switch that is used to operate it. I hope this helps. Thank you and have a great day!

After installing 8023534 infinite switch, the burner will turn on for only 20 seconds, This is for the double burner, this happens on both inner and outer. They only stay On for 20 seconds , then turn off..
For model number kecc502GBL2
Hello, Thank you for your question. You will want to check the element itself, If it is not functioning properly and the switch has been replaced you will want to check the element itself. We hope this helps.

    2 burner control - "Large" = "Large", "Small" = "Large"
    Well, I found the two screws that held the cook top in place and backed them out. Pulled the cook top out of the counter and took out a bazillion little sheet metal screws that held the cover in place. The controllers were grouped in a cluster of four, and the "Front Left" was easy to spot. I pulled the wires off one-by-one and noted the marking on the old controller, and noted the markings on the new controller, especially the translator table that came with the new controller - the old and new controllers are a bit different. Then screwed the new controller in and tested the cook top - worked fine. Then I changed the hard wiring to the power source (a bad job originally) to a three prong plug and socket arrangement. Put it all back together and was back in business - a "piece of cake" repair. A week later "somebody" dropped "something" onto the corner of the glass and chipped out a little chunk of glass. Oh well, fun to fix anyway!

    Replaced defective switch
    I removed the rangetop from the counter, Then I removed the knobs and about 12 screws and removed the glass top. I then removed the panel with the controls. I marked down the wire and terminal locations and removed the defective switch . I installed the new switch and connected the wires using the supplied wiring instructions.
    I was glad to see that the new switch came with wire extenders and shrink tubing. I used one of them.
    I replaced the glass top and installed it back into the counter ,Turned on the circuit breaker and everything worked perfect..

    Dual Burner would only heat if knob held down
    Called an authorized Kitchenaid service technician after ordering part. This was the second time this switch has required replacement so we saved time and money by ordering the part in advance from PartSelect. The trickiest part of the repair was separating the ceramic top from the rest of the cooktop. Had we attempted to do this ourselves, we would have given up at that point. I would only recommend this as a do-it-yourself repair if you are intimately familiar with how these cooktops are put together. It is fairly easy to break the ceramic top if you're not.

    Switch on stove top would not work.
    Got Model and SN, went on line and located correct part. Ordered part, arrived in 3 days. Started repair by turning off power to stovee top. Got putty knife and went around edge to loosen stove top to raise and het to underside to dismantle cover. Used battery drill to remove screws on cover. After accessing and removing top and bottom, removed 2 screws, changed one wire at a time and replaced on new switch, reassembled in reverse, turned on power and happily watched burner come to life with new switch.

    Infinite control switch not working
    Turned the breaker off. Removed the glass cook top and removed the screws holding the cook glass to the metal burner case. Followed easy instructions removing one wire at a time and placing on the new switch. Put the glass top back on and installed screws. Placed back in the hole and turned the breaker on. Works like new.
