I need to replace the switch for the large left front burner on my stove. The part number on the original switch is 316021501 (type B). I purchased a replacement switch and it is labeled part# 316436001. The replacement switch is about a third larger than the original and the terminals are configured a little bit differently. Will the new part work on my stove? The model# of the stove is FEF355ASF and the serial# is VF32913265. Also, is there a wiring diagram that will show me how to hook up the new switch? My husband labeled the wires poorly when he removed the switch, so I want to be sure I'm connecting everything correctly. Thank you for your help! Laurel
ANSWER Hello Laurel, looking at your model number, I show your left front burner to be a small element but if you have a large element, the switch for the large element is part# 316436001. The switch for the small element is part# 316436000. It's common for the manufacturer to change the switches over time so they make look different from your original switches. Make sure you have disconnected power or turned off the breaker before making this repair. There should be a wiring diagram on the back of the range. If not, the switch should have the terminals marked L1, L2, H1, H2, and P. Terminals L1 and L2 are the wires for the power coming into the switch. Terminals H1 and H2 provide the power going out to the element. The P terminal is usually for an indicator light. Hope this helps!
