    What are the colours of the wires that connect to the H1 and H2 terminals?

    Or in other words:

    We have six wires coloured and marked as follows:

    Orange LF A

    Brown LF N

    Red LF 3

    Red R L2

    Red unmarked

    Black R L1



    Where does each one go?

Ok....Just replaced the Left Front "dual burner" switch on my Kitchenaid Supurba.

Original switch symptom:
Burner was stuck on all the time. We had to switch the circuit off in the main breaker box in the basement.

New switch problem:
The new replacement switch did not work properly. The element would come on and would never cycle on and off. Thus, the net result was if you turn the burner on, it was on "high". It didn't matter where put the heat setting at...It's on high for both the inner element and the larger outer element.

I ended up taking the old switch apart and found that one of the contacts was mis-aligned and wedged itself in the "closed" position. I un-wedged the mis-aligned contact and bent it back into alignment. I took out the new switch and put the old one back in. It works perfectly.

Meanwhile, I had to figure out why the new switch was not working. The new switch comes with re-wiring instructions because it is not an exact replacement as the old switch. There is a chart that tells you what wires go to which prongs on the new switch. The new switch also includes a "jumper wire" that must be installed. Here's where I went wrong. The instructions say to jump S1 to P1 (which I did). But, I did not route it exactly as the picture shows and the brass crimp end actually hits against another unused connector. So be careful when routing the jumper wire.

Old Switch Number: 9751758
New Switch Number: 8203536 (Made by FSP Appliance Care Products - A Whirlpool Corporation)

Now for the wiring:

Description Wire Color Old Switch New Switch
& designation Terminal # Terminal #

L1 Black (RL1) 2 P1
H1 Red 3 4
H2 Orange (LFA) 4 4A
P Dark Red 5 S2
N or L2b Brown (LFN) N 2
N or L2b Red (RL2) N P2

On the new switch, use the supplied jumper wire to jump S1 to P1 as instructed.
Yes, on the old switch, 2 wires connect to a common connector (the Brown LFN & Red RL2).

Unfortunatley, I did not document the red wire (LF3)...Sorry....

Hope this helps.....

    The formatting for the wiring section does not look like the "preview" before I posted the previous post. This site took out the extra spaces I inserted to make the columns line up.....Sorry....

    Thank-you so much for the excellent advise. It saved me at least $100 to avoid having the service repair man come out. I took the wires off the old switch without labeling so I had no idea how to reconnect the old wires to the new switch but with your excellent cross reference to the new Whirlpool switch I was able to figure it out. Thanks from Michigan.

NORMALLY, THERE ARE 5 WIRES TO A STANDARD SWITCH. L1 AND L2 ARE THE POWER GOING TO THE SWITCH, NORMALLY RED AND BLACK. LOOK AT ANOTHER SWITCH ON THE RANGE TO DETERMINE WHICH IS WHICH.
THE H1 AND H2 ARE THE OUTPUTS ( ARE B1 AND B2 ON SOME SWITCHES). THESE ARE THE OUPUTS TO THE ELEMENT. THEY ARE INTERCHANGEABLE. THE "P" ON THE SWITCH IS THE PILOT AND GOES TO THE INDICATOR LAMP THAT TELLS WHEN THE SWITCH IS ON.

The stove has 4 burner switches with a # 2 terminal on each switch. This contact is similiar on all four switches. One of the switches # 2 contact is stuck. The burner switch should disconnect both legs of the 240 volt circuit, one leg through the # 2 terminal and one leg through the thermostat built into the burner switch. Disconnect the pilot lamp wire on each switch unti the light goes off and then replace that burner switch. This should correct the problem

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

Burner Heating element doesn't heat


Check power to element with a voltmeter. If there is power, the element is bad. If not power, than switch or relay is likely faulty. You can also test them with an ohmmeter

hopefull yyou havent disconnect old switch yet. whirpool and kit aid are same Co. same parts used. assuming the correct part was sent for the corrrect burner. diffrerent element will require different rated swties(ie. small , large, dual and so forth.), the indivudal switches are labeled, on the swithc itself ( L1,L2,H1 H2, P1 andso forth, so although the switches looke differnet they should stil have the same lettered terminal to plug into .
