We have to replace these blocks at least once every six months. It's always the large burner blocks that go bad. Any idea why they keep shorting out? Thank you.
Answer Hello Don. If they are shorting out, it may be due to bad elements causing arching inside the terminal block. I would try replacing the element with the block.
I thought I bought all the right parts put my element does not sit flush in the burner drip pan.
Answer Hello David, the burner elements for your model are, 6 inch element WB30M1 and 8 inch element WB30M2. Hope this helps!
The kit installed easily but the black block does not contain a brass assembly for the burners to plug into similar to the original.
Answer Tom, The brass assembly, that the burners plug into are on the end of the wires. Basically you insert the brass connector end of the wire into the slots on the back side of the black plastic receptacle until they "lock" into place. Splice the new wires to the original wires using high temperature, porcelain wire nuts, if the wires are not long enough to reach the infinite switch, install the drip pan and insert the element ends into the slots of the new receptacle. Everything should be fine from there out. Thanks and Good Luck
How do I access where the stove end of the element wires in kit # WB17T10006 attach?
Answer Hi Ralph. Removew power. Then all coils and drip bowls. Then remove the connector bracket screws from all 4- burners. Then open the door and remove any hidden screws under each front corner. You can now lift the top and drop the prop rod down to support the top. Replace one terminal wire at a time so you have rewired it exactly original. Place all wires routed together so they do not have any contact under the burners to short them or to burn them out. Terminal kit part # WB17T10006. Thank You.
Does the wire nuts come with this kit?
Answer Hello Chris! No, the terminal block kit WB17T10006 does not include the wire nuts. For medium wire nuts use part number TJMA01165-1 and for large wire nuts use part number TJMA01166-1. Thanks!
