This Surface Unit Receptacle wires look shorter then the wires on my unit. Should I be looking for another part? Additionally is there a switch that goes along with replacing both the Surface Unit Receptacle and burner?
Thanks for your help.
ANSWER Hi Elizabeth. There is a different type of the unit receptacle if you want. There is a bakelite type and a ceramic (better) type. The receptacle (bakelite) is part # WB17X5113. The ceramic style is part # . Depending on the burner in question, there are different switches for different burner sizes. Let us know what area /and size of the burner. Surface Unit Receptacle - By GE. Fits GE and Hotpoint ranges where a plastic terminal block is used. It is recommended to also check the surface elements for any burns. For the large 8 inch surface element order AP2634728. For the small 6 inch surface element order AP2634727.
