Will this switch work for my model? My current switch has individual wires not a block. Can the individual wires be attached to this switch?
Answer Hello Bill! The universal surface unit switch kit, part number 4391989, will work on your model. Yes, the existing wiring will hook up to this switch. Thanks.
I installed this surface unit switch and the knob adapter. However the knob still stands too high off the surface of the cook top, even with all but one shaft segments removed. Am I doing something wrong? Otherwise, is there a known best J-rig, like shimming the switch or drimmeling off the adapter shaft? Thanks
Answer CH, The shaft segments are approximately 1/8 inch in height. You can remove the total segmented shaft if needed, but your description sounds like that may not work either. Shimming the switch and using a slightly longer screw, sounds like a good alternative, but can't determine what to use as a shim or length of screw. But you don't want the switch assembly to wobble or be loose once it's mounted.
Infinite switch #4391989. Do you have a video for that switch # or wiring detail for this switch as it pertains to the range model #? Thanks
Answer Hello Sardis,
There is no exact video on this switches wiring since it has a factory change involved. Instructions are as follows: The wire that was on P will go to the pilot terminal on the new switch. The wire that was on the L1 terminal will go to the P2 terminal on the new switch. The wire that was on the L2 terminal will go to the P1 terminal on the new switch. The wire that was on the H1 terminal will go on the terminal labeled 4 on the new switch. The wire that was on the H2 terminal will go to the terminal labeled 2 on the new switch.
Apparently the original part GE WB23X0074 is no longer available. Can part WB21X5243 be used to make the 8 inch and indicator light functions work? It is for the right front element, which normally has 4 inch, 6 inch, 8 inch and girdle functions plus the indicator light? If it can be done can you send a schematic for the electrician to follow? Thanks!
Answer Hello Stanley,
This part is listed for the other elements on the unit. Since, if you look at the terminal on the element, there are multiple connections, (four), it cannot be used in the place of the original (designed for an element with two terminals). I do apologize for this but, if you were to try to make this work, it could cause an unsafe situation in your home.
