bought replacement infinite switch electric stovetop but the amperage range different
Model Number: RBB-102CH Brand: Frigidaire Age: More than 10 years
RE: Frigidaire stovetop electric range
Model RBB-102CH Infinite switch replacement
New switch AMP range vastly different than old switch
will the new switch work properly?????
I have trouble with the large 8 inch burner for this 1960s era stovetop
electric stove. It only has one temperature, HOT, so I bought
a replacement infinite switch.
Upon bringing it home the new switch (part 5309957099) states and looking at the old switch still in the stove,
I noticed the amperage range for the new switch
I just bought is 8.9 to 11.0 AMP
The old switch still in the stovetop electric range
is 7.5 to 8.9 AMP
I do not trust the customer service person who sold me this
switch to have told me it is the proper switch. I believe she just decided it was good for any 8 inch burner.
New switch expensive cost $90 so I do not want to blow it up
or the stove.
Before opening the packaging and installing this new switch I
Would like to know if this new infinite switch with very different amperage range than one that worked well for years would work properly for my electric range. ????????????That is not ruin other components of stovetop range, not cause an electrical fire, burner will provide a proper level of heat from"simmer" to "high heat"
