Question and Answers

Q:

Can Kenmore infinite switch 316436000 be replaced with 316436001.

A:

Definitely having to do repairs yourself can be a challenge to help in determining if you have the right part I would suggest visiting Sears parts direct.com where you can view a diagram of all parts available for your appliance. I have attached a link below. Hope it helps!

I've already gotten a response from Sears and am awaiting their answer. I got the infinite switch from another outlet. The package has 316436000 on it. However the configuration is almost identical to the 60001, with the exception it has 5 lugs, the one that is in my range is smaller, square, the 6001 I got from sears is a little bigger and rectangular. I sent picture to Sears. I'm guessing that for what ever reason, they have the same configuration but different output. My Kenmore, left to right, from looking at the back has the first 3 the little square ones, the 4th or furtherest to the right has the larger rectangular shape. I replaced the large switch on the right, from Sears, works fine. Hope this makes sense?

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Part number 31643600 is for the small element and the 316436001 is for the large element and I do not show that either one is substituted. However, they can substitute the switches which should come with wiring instructions if there is any difference in the wiring.

The two switches are not normally interchangeable. I added a YouTube video showing how to replace the 316436000 switch.

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

If you take a look at this video you will see that both the infinite switches in that appliance are the same configuration as the 6001, not a problem. However, mine has four infinite switches, three are the smaller square and only one, the furtherest on the right is the 6001 configuration. I know it's simple, and I'm missing something. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z0Qd4B_IqrM&feature=relmfu

Harold: If you look on the back of the switches each terminal should be labeled. Look and see if the terminals are terminals. It should. I know in some cases they will use the infinite switch used for the large burner for the small ones but you can't use an infinite switch designed for the small element for a large element. The infinite switch for the small elements can not handle the higher current of the large elements.

Moving right along here, thanks for all this help. The picture is the switch 6000, as marked on the package. I hope you're able to see the numbers assigned to those lugs. The 6000 on the back of my Kenmore are as such Switch Off test for small 6000 on back of Kenmore L1 to H1 no continuity OK L2 to H2 no continuity OK P to each one no continuity OK Connections large switch L2 2 red wires upper right H2 Blue upper middle H1 blue upper left P two purple middle left L1 Black green stripe bottom left If and when we figure it out, I bet we'll. I may end up taking it into Sears. Unfortunately the nearest to us is 150 mile. We're out away's. Best place in town to eat is the Texaco Station.

Might as well add this. Printing on the new switch. 316436000; HL811458; 1124420; 5.6-6.25A; 240V; 1250-1500W. I thinking, oop, I stopped to think once, and never started again. I'm guessing the Amperage may be he key here. Perhaps the 6001 has a higher amp? If so, then all I have to do is figure out where to connect the wires, due to the differed configuration. Semper Fi

Harold: The L1 terminal connects to the line one voltage supply. L2 connects to the line two voltage supply. H1 connects to the heating element, H2 connects to the heating element and 2P connects to the surface ON indicator light. When the switch is turned on, L1 and H1 makes contact and L2 and H2 also makes contact. 2P sends voltage the element ON indicator light. I hope this helps. If not maybe the wiring diagram will help. I will need to know the model number or your range in order to look up the specific wiring diagram for your model.

Thanks Joey, you may have solved it for me. I'll let you know. Just per chance the damaged 6001 I replaced was still laying on my workbench. Amperage on it is 8.9-10.8A. Soo, the amperage for the 6001 is actually higher. Although the confinguration on the new 6000 I got appears they are the same, they are not. Wish I'd checked that sooner, may have save some, but it's been fun, a lot of things are fun when you're in your 70's. Again thanks for all the assistance.
