The Key to Replacing a Kitchen Stove Switch

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.
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.Â The key to replacingÂ 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.

The Non-Contact Electrical Tester
This is a testing tool that I have had in my personal electrical tool pouch for years, and is the first test tool I grab to help identify electrical wiring. It is a Non-contact tester that I use to easily Detect Voltage in Cables, Cords, Circuit Breakers, Lighting Fixtures, Switches, Outlets and Wires. Simply insert the end of the tester into an outlet, lamp socket, or hold the end of the tester against the wire you wish to test. Very handy and easy to use.
