Need wiring solution for replacement part
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.....

Range shows 'SA 66" in display
After calling customer service with no satisfaction, I did a Google search for SA66 which turned out to be really SAbb code. I found out that this is a special "Jewish Mode" that I somehow turned on while pushing the touch pad disabling it. To end the "Sabbath Mode", Press CANCEL/OFF FOR ONE SECOND, then press and hold Number Pad 6 for five seconds. It worked!
(You can also press and hold the Number Pad 6 for five seconds first, followed by CANCEL/OFF.)

Kitchen aid double convection oven - glass needs cleaning!
Had to remove the screws on the BOTTOM of the outside door, then panel came off after all the screws (inside oven door included) were off...
Reversed the order to put back on.. Cleaned (all) three glass pieces nicely... Now after reading the problems with the self cleaning part (doors getting stuck!) - I'm afraid to try mine!

How do i disconnect the electricty from the range
Depending on your country. Pull out the range. If you see a large plug, twist slightly anticlockwise and pull it out.
If you see a metal or plastic plate that the wires disappear into, you will need to do the following.
Turn off the breaker to the stove.
Go to the stove and try and turn it on. You should see no lights or power.
Remove the cover plate.
Check the wires with a mains tester of some sort.
Write down, or take a picture of which wire goes where?
Unscrew the wires from the clamp and then the wires from the terminals.
