For Frigidaire Control Dual Element (Part Number: AP3873639)

Answer or Comment

View all Questions

I replaced a cracked glass cooktop. All was going great 'til I noticed one broken plastic thread on the duel-element control switch (316441801). I understand I can't just replace that simple part (which is mounted to the board to force the replacement price through the roof), but then I proceeded to break two more, leaving just one working switch. My question is, did I break these while removing and reattaching the wires to these, or did I over-tighten the large black plastic cinch pieces on the top, finished plate reinstalling? Because, to my knowledge, I didn't do anything that I was aware of to break those plastic threads?

ANSWER Yodermaker, The most likely cause for the threading to break would be when retightening the nut that holds them in place.
