Good morning, Im in the process of restoring my Frigidaire

Resolved Question:

Good morning, I'm in the process of restoring my Frigidaire stove model # XXXXX It needs a few lights, some new knobs. But the biggest problem is it has a super fast burner, not sure what to call it, that keeps blowing the fuse to that burner. I'm thinking I neeed to replace the control swith ? Maybe check the ground or redo the wiring to that circuit. Any suggestions as to where I find the knobs ? I,m thinking the lights I can find @ by local Lowes. But the burner is my real issue. If I do rewire the circuit is there a special type of wire for stoves ? Can you tell the amps that burner draws ? Can I purchases a newer control swith for that buner ? Any help will be greatly appreciated.   Carl

thanks Bryan. I guess I need to remove the switch to get a correct match. If I do need to do some wiring is there a special type of wire or is that some thing I can match up at Lowes or Home Depot ? Any suggestion for replacement knobs ?
