Question about GE Cooktops
My renter broke and removed the infinite switch (right front) on my GE JP350 electric cook top. I bought a GE replacement part WB24T10119 and the enclosed typical wire color chart does not match the wires in my cook top. My cook top has red, black, blue, and purple with in-line connectors and a single purple wire. The enclosed documentation with the part list red, black, yellow and the fourth and fifth line as blue, brown, yellow, or Orange. Please advise how to connect the switch.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Older 3 wire connectors where Wht=Neutral Ground Return, Red=One Phase Hot, Blk=Second Phase Hot, of 220VAC stove connections.
Newer Electrical code standard has a forth wire that is bare copper for a separate safety ground return.
I suggest you but a 4 wire pig tail cable for your stove top, available at Depot or Lowes, and connect 3 wires of this 4 wire cable just like the 3 wires are now connected. The 4th bare copper safety is attached to any metal part of the stove. Find a screw you can loosen to wrap it around and tighten.

This is usually the infinite switch has failed. They are easy to check and inexpensive. There is a video at www.appliancehelponline.com/servicemanual.html that will walk you thru testing this. It may be a different model but the testing will be the same. You can also enter your model # for diagrams and illustrations for your specific model. Not all models are available. All parts come with installation instructions.
