I have an electric stove model# JBS55DM2WW. A small burner and large burner burnt out. I replaced the larger burner to see if it was salvageable in the first place. It worked but the infinite switch was bad and kept the stove on. So I took the smaller burner's inifinite switch and replaced the large burner's infinite switch. I didn't realize the amps are different. Is this ok to use like this?
I suspect since the amps being drawn by the switch is lower that the larger burner should be able to handle it and it will be ok. Is this alright for long term?
The small burner infinite switch is rated for 5.4-7.0 amps The larger burner infinite switch is rated for 7.2-9.0 amps Both switches are 240 volts.
I'm not an electrical guy. I'm getting confused by what is out there about putting a lower amp outlet for a wall socket. For instance a 15a won't run a 20amp appliance. But to me my situation is different since the switch can only provide up to 7.0 amps the burner only gets 7.0 amps and might run cooler but still be ok. Or am I wrong and the larger burner is trying to draw way more amps than the switch can provide and is therefore a hazard?
Thanks in advance!!!
