Major Appliances/interchange GE range surface elements
I manage apartments where our newer ranges are GE/Hotpoint. For the large 8" burners, some models (e.g., RB757DP1W) use a WB30T10074 surface element and WB24T10025 infinite switch (2600W); other models (e.g., RB526H3WW) use a WB30K10003 element and WB24T10027 switch (2100W). Would it damage anything if you used the WB24T10025 switch in models which call for the WB24T10027? Our cost for the first is 40% of the second. Also, is it okay to use the WB30M2 8" element for both these applications? Thanks.
The WB30T10074 element is a 2600 watt element along with a WB24T10025 2600 watt switch. To use a 2600 watt switch on a 2100 watt burner is not a good idea. The burner would have a short life cycle. If you want to the WB24T10025 switch, replace the element with a 2600 watt element at the same time and you will be okay. I can sell you a brand 2600 watt element for 20.00 each in quanities of 25. See attached picture. The WB30M2 is a 6 turn 8"element rated at 2350 watts @ 240 volts. Another short life cycle with a 2600 watt burner switch. What do you pay for the WB24T10025 burner switches?
Waiting to hear from you,
Eric and Ann Campion
