For Whirlpool Infinite Switch (Part Number: AP4088404)

Answer or Comment

View all Questions

I purchased switch 71001166 for the right side switch controlling the small rear burner. Some of the question/answers here give the impression this switch is universal to both sides, but I don't see how. The knob is 90 degrees off for the right side, but is aligned when installed on the left side of the cooktop. The knob mounts are aligned at 45 degree angles to the cooktop. Basically, the left side infinite switches have the post aligned pointing to the mounting screws and the right side switched have the post aligned at 90 degrees. My question is, does the other infinite switch listed - 74011242 really have 4 mounting holes on top. That would be truly universal for both sides. Or, am I missing something and installing 71001166 wrong?

Randy for Model Number JED8430ADB

ANSWER Randy, Per the manufacturer the infinite switch for the right rear and the left front are part number 71001166. The part ordered would be the correct part for the model.
