I've just replaced the infinite switch, WB21X5243, which I guess is a universal unit that replaces WB21X226. Everything works, but the adapter that fits my knob is the small solid "D" with an extension to fit over the square stem, causing the knob to stick out about 3/8" above the control panel. The instructions refer to a yellow bushing that goes over the square stem. I received an orange bushing that would go over the square stem, but its "D" shape is too big for my knob. I'm looking at the other parts in this kit, thinking that this assembly (bracket, threaded collar, nut) somehow gets attached to the switch inside the control panel (the extension on the adapter fits into it perfectly), but can't for the life of me figure out how to incorporate it into the install. I could attach the bracket to the switch, but the threaded collar won't fit through the hole on the control panel to receive the nut. And even if it goes that way, wouldn't I need longer screws to pass through the bracket and attach the switch directly to the control panel to keep it from turning with the knob? Heeeeeeelp!
The switch will attach directly to the control panel without the use of the bracket and nut. You would need to use the adapter that fits you knob and as long as the adapter sits flush with the control then this is the design of the part. If the adapter is not sitting flush then you will want to take another piece off of the stem.
Do you have the Switch Oven for J-BS03G0K2AD general electric stove.
The small oven switch is part number WB22X5134. If you are looking for the thermostat then it has been discontinued with no replacement.
The burner knob broke off actually the D shaped metal post shaft it connected to is broke of and in knob. How do I replace this and what is the part called?
Answer Hello r3sunz. That is the infinate switch. You will access the switch and connect the wires to the new switch in the same terminals of the old switch.
