Question: I am replacing a switch inside a Frigidaire Elite kitchen stove. I need to know where to plug the (wires (two black, on red and two white)on the element’s switch (some wires go into the other element’s switch). Unfortunately, the stove’s electrical diagram I can’t read… Thank you in advance.

Dave’s Reply:
Thanks for your electrical question Andre.
Andre, I would need to know exactly what switch is being replaced and the exact model number of the kitchen stove.  The key to replacing  a kitchen stove switch is to get the exact replacement switch then write down the exact connections of all the wires before removing any wires from the existing switch. If it is possible, remove the existing switch with the wires attached, then one by one transfer the wire assignments to the new switch. Be sure the stove circuit is off before replacing the switch.
