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!
This is a cook top model and does not tilt up. How do I replace the unit receptacle? Do I remove Part 2, where the 4 control knobs are located to get to the wire harness? Is this part supposed to be easily removed?
Answer Service Guy, no it's not going to be very easy, You'll need to lift the unit out of the counter opening, and support it with a couple of 1X2 in. wood strips. remove the frame, elements and element receptacle screws, then remove the perimeter screws holding the cooktop to the burner box, then lift the cook top up and off the frame. Then you can remove prt #2 and !0 and access the switches and wiring.
