#313352 Kitchenaid KHTU705SSS0 MR16 lamp sockets & bulb clip holders worn out

Posted by w5jv on 13 February 2015 - 07:27 PM

APPLIANTOLOGY EXPERTS ... HEADS UP .... The Whirlpool socket kit W10337300 by itself, DOES NOT WORK.  My Rangehood is a KHTU705SSS and according to the experts database original part number 8190542 is replaced by it.  I repeat: it DOES NOT WORK as a full replacement.  Only the socket itself and the spade lug pigtail fit.  The included screws are WRONG.  They are fine thread and the original screws are bigger and course thread.  The included bulb spring clamp is WRONG.  The included bulb lamp spring fingers are only 1/4" tall.  The MR16 bulb recess grooves that need those fingers are almost 7/16" tall.  I was able to get the range hood going by reusing the old screws and the old spring clips.  

 

DEALING WITH MODERN WHIRLPOOL PARTS OR DATABASES IS LIKE SHOOTING CRAPS.  GET THE POINT.  What a bunch of bandits this industry is run by.  AND I GOT TO SAY, SEARS IS THE WORST.
