Why does my switch keep on breaking without it being used every couple years?
Answer Hello George,
We would not have an exact reason for part failure. Here is an ideas of why the switch would fail. No use and grease getting into the switch causing it to short out.
Is the part made by General Electric?
Answer Hi George, the part is a genuine GE part used on several GE hood models. I don't know if GE actually made the switch or purchased it for their units. Thanks!
