For Whirlpool Jenn-Air Conventional Element Cartridge (Part Number: AP4242040)

I just purchased a cooktop module (part# AP4242040) to insert into my RC8900XABO cooktop. My original module has a 4 blade connector. I understand the new one I ordered uses only 3 blades of the connector (4th not used). Will the 3 blade module work in the older cooktop or will I be required to rewire something? If so I need instructions on the rewire and wiring diagram. I also purchased a AP4292626 replacement terminal block in case I need it.

ANSWER Hello Tom. There is no way of wiring the 4 prong terminal block to work with the three prong cartridge. The 4 prong has been discontinued and is no longer available. Sorry.
