Range Infinite Burner Switch - 8 Inch
PartSelect Number PS11744487
Manufacturer Part Number WP7403P239-60This infinite switch is for 8-inch range burners. When an element is unable to produce any heat on a modern oven, the problem may lie with the infinite switch. This switch is responsible for sending power to the surface elements. Check the element and terminal block to ensure they are working properly. If they are in working order, check the infinite switch at the control panel for any wires that have overheated, or broken terminals to or from the infinite switch. If the infinite switch is damaged or malfunctioning, it will need to be replaced. Remember to unplug your range before beginning this repair.

Edward from Malvern, AR
Burner would not heatFirst i shut off the power since this is an electric cook top/range. I then removed the knob and the two screws that hold the burner switch in place. I removed the wires one at a time and connected each to the new switch. I then reattached the screws to the switch. The most difficult part to me was breaking off the switch stem at the right level. I got that done and finally selected the appropriate adapter for the stem/knob fit. Read more...

Barry from Wichita Falls, TX
A heat control switch was broken.I first turned off the power to the stovetop at the breaker box, disconnected the power supply wires, removed the stovetop from the counter, placed the stovetop on a towel on the kitchen table, removed the screws connecting the glass top to the base, removed the glass top, removed additional screws holding the sheetmetal housing for the switches, opened this area and located the faulty switch, disconnected the wires leading to the faulty switch, connected the wires to the new switch, secured the switch to the sheetmetal housing and put the unit back together. It was not a difficult repair, just took a little time. Read more...

The right rear burner ignition switch malfunctioned.Repair is simple as long as you TURN OFF THE CIRCUIT BREAKER first. After that, take off the cover over the switches (pull knobs off, remove 2 screws and lift off the cover), pull the bad switch straight up off the gas valve, pull the two wires off the switch, plug them back onto the new switch, place it back over the gas valve stem, reassimble the cover and knobs, turn back on the circuit breaker, and verify that ignition switch works. Not a hard repair. (HINT: while you are waiting on the replacement part, you can light the bad burner by turning on the opposite burner ignition switch and using that "spark" to light the other burner.) Read more...

Scott from Huntsville, AL
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! Read more...
