Got a Kenmore stove on the go - Canadian Model C880 665539H1.  It's your basic Whirlpool Gold.

 

Had to replace the front left infinite switch.  The original part number is 9753500.  The replacement is 8203529.  Problem - the instructions with the kit don't match with what I'm seeing in the stove.  I wired it up the way I thought it should be using a mix of instructions from Google ... the wiring diagram and the instructions that came with the kit.  Turned it on and blew the switch apart ... glowing bits flying everywhere.  Not happy!

 

So - does anybody have any experience with this stupid kit?  I've attached pictures of the switches (the blue one is the replacement) and of the instructions and wiring diagram.  Any help would be appreciated.

These switches suck. The knobs are wiggly on the shaft, customer is never satisfied with the finished repair.For what whirlpool is charging for parts you would think they wouldn't sell us this crap.

. Anyway, Are you sure you replaced each terminal wire for wire as directed? Its pretty self explanatory. What was your problem with the wiring?did you have an unaccounted for wire left over?

Any chance you might have connected "N" to "L2" rather than L2b"?

... The original part number is 9753500.  The replacement is 8203529.

yes, but I don't think the "old" Switch in your hand is 9753500
I think there's (2) different Switches on that Range.

The "old" Switch you're holding is for the large front Elements.

Your "new" Switch is a replacement for 9753500 (the small rear Elements)

You need the large front Element Switch original 74010824

Something like that anyway.  I replaced the rear switch already - it was a standard one.  The customer 'found' the coverplate on the original switch which he had removed and the part number on it was 9755174 (Canadian part I think.)  My supplier has 2 in stock - will go with that.  Thanks guys!
