Ok then your switch must not be one of the ones that is subject to the lookup error.
Did the instructions address the extra wire that was left over?
Everytime I have run into this situation, I have been able to get the original switch.
Yes, can you give me the part number on the old switch?
How many connectors does the old switch have?
Can you take a picture of the instruction sheet for the new switch?
Ok, this appears to be a valid replacement since it is designated as a dual infinite switch replacement.
Only if I knew what color wires were on what terminals on the old switch.
I only know the wires by function and not by color as each burner tends to have a different color for the H wires.
Those are wires that go to the element.
Do you have a clear picture of the back of the old switch showing the designations?
These is all I can gleen without actually being there and doing continuity tests from the burners to the old switch and mapping it over to the new switch. The rest of the wires, I am unable to determine with the information I have here. There is a likelyhood that your new switch may be damaged by the looks of it as there may have been a full 40 amps passing through it. Sorry.
Large black to L1 (this wire is common to all switches)
Large red to P2 (this wire is common to all switches)
Separated large wire that is reterminated connect to connection #2
Single black wire from indicator light to S2
I will opt out and see if anyone else can chime into this.
