I replaced one of these in my mother's Kenmore range about three years ago to fix this behavior where the burners would fire up to red hot despite being dialed in to a low setting. When I removed the old infinite switch it was charred and burned out. Replacing it fixed the problem then, but apparently its returned. I haven't yet inspected the switch but I suspect it burned out too, since the particular model of theirs has only one large burner, the other three being small, and therefore it gets used disproportionately compared to the other three. What's the average lifetime of one of these infinite switches. I'm ready to purchase another but don't want to invest in one should there be deeper issues to resolve. Thanks so much for this great website. ~Jaime

I have a drop in GE electric oven. The two large burners are not heating properly. One only heats on high and the other will heat just fine if I don't turn the knob above medium. If I turn the knob to above medium it will heat on high. The two small burners work fine. So I know that I need to change out the infinite control switch, but my problem is that it is a drop in oven so I cannot easily pull out the oven to get to the back panel. Is there anyway to change out the control switch from the front so that I don't have to somehow lift the oven over the base board under the oven and then pull it out. And if so how do I do this? Thanks so much for your advise.

My girlfriend has an electric range/oven. The brand is General Electric. The problem is that at times the oven turns on by it's self. I have tried using contact cleaner on the switch but with no luck. The part number in the manual is : wb23k5o27 however your website says that this is not the right one. Do you have any idea what the problem is and if it is the switch what is the correct part number?

Latest Questions

I'm going to get the infinite switch as recommended. Re the install...looking at the back of the broken one I have, does it matter what order the wires from the burner terminal block are hooked up to the infinite switch. Looks like one wire goes to the bottom left terminal(1-H1) and the other to the top left (4-H2) but no sure which side of the terminal block they are coming from. I don't want to blow the switch by reversing the connections.

I have the same situation as Phil, above, where the surface unit light won't go off but the left front burner control switch and burner element still work ok. Can I jusr unhook the wire from that burner switch to the light,assuming I don't care if the light works or not? My stove is model jsp34ww3ww. Thanks

The burner light on the left hand side of the stove stays on but switches and burners seem to work fine. I disconnected the light from the 8" burner switch and the light went off but the switch and the burner still worked fine. Is there a short in the switch? Thanks. Phil
