Question about Kitchen Ranges

GE Stove Im trying to replace a Infinite Switch Dual, I ordered part # WB21X237 and received WB23M106 and was told that this is a generic part. Here's my problem. My original part has 5 connections listed as P, H1, H2, L1, L2 and the new one has 6 listed as P1 (dual conection) P2, 2, 4, 4a. I'm not sure were to put the 5 wires from my old switch to the 6 connections on the new switch. Can you please help me with this. The part did not come with schematics or instructions.

Re: GE Stove

I'll need a model number to determine what's going on and whether the part is really a generic. They should have given you some kind of installation instructions.

Frigidaire glass top stove dual element ony works on high no matter were knob is set

Hello Chad;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

It sounds like you have a bad Warmer Infinite Switch.

Once installed, the switch controls your gas range's warmer drawer element. When replacing your gas range's switch, consider replacing its knob (PartsDirect part number 316442403) if it shows significant wear.
To replace your gas range's warmer infinite switch, pull the knob off the switch and remove the screws securing it. Disconnect any wires running to the switch and take note of those connections. Remove the switch and put the new one into its place, reattaching the wires to the same terminals. Be sure to unplug your gas range before beginning the repair.

It is located on the right hand side of your display panel. You have to remove the side panels screws and control panel back to access.

Which element is it? Try to switch the infinite switch from another element. This will tell you if it is the element or the switch problem.

Thank you for contacting

It looks like you may have a bad Infinite switch. It controls the complete oven for bake, broil, and self cleaning. Remove all wires from the switch terminals. Set the infinite switch on high and place your ohmmeter on the L2, H2, P and H1 terminals to check for continuity. If there is no continuity between L1 and H1 or between L2 and H2, the infinite switch is defective. If there is no continuity between P and H1, the indicator light circuit is defective. Remove the infinite switch by removing the screws or nuts that hold it in place and install a new infinite switch by following the disassembly instructions in reverse order. You will not be able to find it at lowest; you will need to order it from a supply house. You can order this part at the following locations online... WWW.APWAGNER.COM, or WWW.REPAIRCLINIC.COM, or WWW.PARTSTORE.COM. All 3 of these places are a good place to order your parts because of their liberal return policy.

Please get back to us if you have any further query.

Have a nice day.

This is most certainly the infinite switch. If you pull the knob off for this eye, the shaft you see is part of that switch. You need to disconnect power to the appliance and replace it.

Glass top large burner not working properly. Light indicating stove top is warm stays on all the time.

This is usually the infinite switch has failed. They are easy to check and inexpensive. Here is a video that will walk you thru testing an infinite switch. 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.

Lg flat surface stove burner

Replace your infinite switch for this (your lf burner switch). Call a parts supplier with your model number, try and get an exact switch, not a generic switch. Do not replace the switch without unpluggin your range first. Good Luck, Appliance Specialists

Try putting the element in another spot. If it does the same, then it is the problem. If it works fine, then you need to change the infinite switch.
