GE Wall Oven

6 posts in this topic

I've got a customer with an older GE wall that needs an Oven Thermostat.

 

The part is NLA (WB21X5209)

 

Anyone know of a universal Robertshaw (or similar) Oven Thermostat kit?

If you don't specifically need the extra long 62" capillary tube and can get by with only 34" then the WB21X5208 will work, (it's exactly the same except for cap. tube length).

 

There are four of the WB21x5208 listed on Ebay, (3-new, 1-used).

 

The one used one is outrageously priced at $200 and one of the new ones is really ridiculous at $425.

 

The other two new ones: (Buy-it-Now)$72.88 + FREE Ship or Make Offer and (Bid-Auction, 1 day left)$149.99 + FREE Ship

 

EDITED: just realized that the $72.88 one isn't really a WB21x5208 (has that listed in the body of the description but the part# in the listing header doesn't sub to a wb21x5208).

MyPartShelf.com has 5 of the WB21X5209 listed, all but one say call for pricing - the one that shows a price $300.00

 

I've found that what is listed on MyPartShelf is almost never there - people are very bad about updating their listings when things are sold.

 

I found as a substitute part# 5330-001 THERMOSTAT SAME AS WB21X5208 at PartStore.com for $82.94+FREE Ship

 

It has a 68" capillary tube, it's also available at RepairClinic $75.25 or ProSupplyCo.com at $41.39 + shipping, (E-Bay has a new one listed at $35+FREE Ship or Make Offer).

 

You may have to do some rewiring to make the Robert Shaw 5330-001 work, it appears to only have two terminals instead of four like the GE parts have.  Here's a link to the spec sheet that comes with the 5330-001

Thanks guys.

 

Called Marcone to order the 5330-001---they recommended the TJ 5430-175 ($65)---so I went with that:)
