In the installation instruction to replace a surface unit, it refers to disconnect wires from a limiter. Is this limiter included with the purchase of a new element? If not what is its part number and the cost ? What is the purpose of the limiter?
Answer Hi Robert. The limiter allows the burner to cycle safely & properly. As the burner is normally mounted, imagine it very close to the bottom of the under glass area. Then if the customers pan bottom is warped and Used on the burner, now you have trapped heated air under the burner. The limiter now senses the trapped air temperature and then cycles faster trying to keep up on the burner demand. Thus the limiter gets over worked way too fast. Being there as a safety limit so the burner does not run away and overheat or a possible fire. Burner part # 8523047. Thank You.
I need to order the left front and the right front element. What are the correct part numbers?
Answer Palance, the left front and right front elements are part number 8523047. This element comes one per package. Thanks!
Note: This question is for the older version of this part, but we thought you might still find it helpful
One of the children was cooking on the dual element on high (both). When they were done they walked away leaving the dual burner on for a period of time. The inner element no longer works. Is there a ohms/voltage test that I could varify what's broke (switch, limiter, sensor tube, element)? Or do you have a short cut of knowing what the issue is? Thanks, Ken
Answer Hi Ken. You can quickly take a flashlight and look into the glass at the burner assy. If you see "opens" in the ribbon element, then you found the issue. It is part # 8523047. The dual infinite switch is part # 9757030. A quick way to tell on this part is looking at the sides and the terminals to see if there are burnt spots. A live voltage meter test is to check the out put terminals while cycling between Low, Medium and High heat. You should get 240 vac output at the burner on the orange # 2 terminal and the or/blk. wire on the # 4 terminal. Thank You
I need to order the right side element large and small. What are the correct part numbers?
