Default Oven Selector Switch Replacement
Model Number: Caloric (Amana) RS355-UL-OF   Brand: Caloric   Age: More than 10 years   

Appliance Parts from AppliancePartPros.com


I have an older Caloric gas oven/range.
RSS355-UL-OF

I believe it's now under Amana,
but I can only find models RSS354-OF and RSS356 ... no RSS355

So, I think the RSS354 is very similar.
I want to replace the oven selector switch.
Whirlpool No. AP2968410

It looks the same in the picture, but how can I tell if it's the same?
Is there a way to know if that switch has:
OFF
BAKE
TIMED-BAKE
BROIL
CLEAN

And it's so bizarre that my Model RSS355 does not exist.

Can you post all numbers from the old part?

The other solution is to call the APP customer service and they can run the part search for you. They do have the access to the older models.

Gene,
Thanks ... I'll take the panel off and write down any numbers
that are on the "bad" switch. I don't remember if there were
any numbers on it, but there might have been.

That Whirlpool number I found (previous post) was from APP website.
The switch looks very much the same as mine, but I don't know about
the actual internal contacts.

The part number on the switch is: 31-061636-02-0

That part number happens to show up for Sears Parts Online.

I believe the AP part is: AP2968410

It would be great if someone at AP could cross reference it
and tell me for sure I've selected the correct switch.

I called the 1-877 number, but the woman who answered didn't
seem to know what I was talking about ... I thought that was strange.
It seemed like she was looking it up on the AP website ... I told her
that I already tried that. After she put me on hold, I was disconnected.

It didn't impress me too much.
But I will buy a switch from AP, if I know it's the correct one.

Thanks,
Max S.

Max,

The part number you posted does not look like Caloric valid part number. Is this the only numbers you got from the old part?

This part number actually did not show up on Sears parts web site either. It just says "Call for availability" and if you'll click on it, the next question is about the make and model of your appliance. This is their regular procedure for unknown part or model number.

I forwarded this information to the APP customer service supervisor and somebody will call you Monday.

Gene.

All numbers on the switch itself ...

ASR5177-192

31-061636-02-0

16A120-240VAC


Maybe that ASR number might be something?

Thanks Gene,
This is a very good forum ... and very busy!
I'm amazed at the number of posts every day.

Regards,
Max S.

Confusing with these old part numbers for this one you have to get rid of some of the numbers and add a 0, so 31-061636-02-0 becomes 0061636 or Part number: AP2968410

Part number: AP2968410
. Looks like you had the correct part number! The part number did change a few times so it may not look exactly like the original, but it is the factory replacement and should work fine. You can order it directly on line or email me your phone number and I will have a rep contact you, Matt@Appliancepartspros.com

Thanks and have a great day!!!
