Is this the part I need if I have a burner that doesn't work? I replaced the burner itself and it still didn't work, so I thought it was a Heating Element type thing, but can't find and heating element for the burners - just these "unit Receptacle" things? Thanks for any help.
ANSWER Hello Vickie, since you already replaced the element, let's assume it is good until we check the other possibilities. Take a look at the wiring to the elements and make sure you have a good connection and nothing is burned or broken. If that all checks out, check your receptacle WB17X5051 to see if it needs to be replaced. Usually when a receptacle fails, the contacts will be burned or broken. If they are good, it's likely the infinite switch WB21X5243. Hope this helps!
