Based on the complicated nature of this repair, I recommend that you have a service technician replace that switch.

I provided a picture of that original switch that appears to match your description. Based on that image, this is what I see:

  1. The double black wires connected to terminal 2 on the old switch should go to P1 on the one as you indicated.
  2. The red braided wire on spade 3 of the old switch should go to spade 4 on the new one (you also had that connection correct).
  3. It appears to me that the braided orange wire is connected to spade 4 on the old switch. That braided wire appears to go to the element as shown in the wiring schematic that is shown in the 2nd image below. If that is the case, then that orange wire should be connected to spade 4a on the new switch. That makes sense since the other red braided wire also goes to the element.
  4. The blue wire from spade 5 on the old switch should go to spade S2 on the new switch.
  5. The braided brown wire and the 2 red wires appear to be connected to the N terminal on that old switch even though the spade designations are confusing. It appears that the braided brown wire should go to terminal 2 on the new switch. The 2 red wires should be connected to P2 on the new switch.
  6. Follow the instructions to connect the jumper wire between one of the P1 spades and the S1 spade on the new switch.

I provided a color coded version of the new switch wiring connections in that 3rd image. There may be a spade on the top right hand corner of that new switch that will not be used.

This information may help you correctly wire up that new switch. You should only complete that wiring yourself if you are completely confident that you are connecting the wires correctly. If you wire it yourself, be careful when you plug the range back in. Be prepared to unplug the range if the switch is not wired correctly. If you have further questions, reply with additional details.
