I am looking for a Burner switch for a Thermador ST-6 or ST-4 cooktop.
The switch is for the Hard Wired Element with 3 wires from the switch and a green ground to the enclosure.
THe switch has 3 push on terminals that go to the element , a single small screw for the "burner on" light" , and three larger screw terminals for power going into the switch.
The switch is the same for all size elements and has seven power positions from low to high.
Anyone having one for sale would sure make my 87 year old mother very happy indeed
Just for everyone's information - those of you who have an very old cooktop with 3,5 or 7 position switches - which are no longer available.
Robertshaw makes a switch kit 5500-202 that will replace any of those switches. It does change it to an infinite switch (no stops at each setting) and it does require some minor rewiring - so I would recommend a Pro or someone who understands wiring to do it - but I was able to do it myself.
THe kit comes with adapters for use with many existing Knobs and the shaft can be cut to the propoer height for your cooktop or stove.
While it is not as easy as getting the exact switch - it is not that hard and does work.
Great information. Thanks for taking the time to post this handy repair tip :-)
