Surface Burner Element Switch, Large Burner
Fix Number FIX11740783
Manufacturer Part Number WP3149400If the large surface burner on your range will not heat up, you may need to replace the switch. This genuine OEM switch is used to control the temperature of the large 8-inch burner, along with turning it on and off. Please be sure to disconnect the power supply to your range before beginning this repair, as you will be working with electrical components. When replacing the switch, the electrical harness features slip-on terminals for easy installation and connections to the switch. You should examine the terminals for signs of arcing or corrosion. If these signs are present, the terminals will need to be replaced as well. The shaft for the burner knob may be longer than the switch you just removed, but you will be able to remove the excess length by using a pair of pliers. If you also need to replace the knob used to turn the switch, it can be purchased separately.
