Whirlpool Cooktop Part – Element Receptacle Kit


Click on Photo for pricing and availability
Powered by AppliancePartsPros

This receptacle kit can be used on most electric ranges and cooktops that use coil type elements. The ends of the element can begin to wear due to electrical arcing between the element contacts and the receptacle. When this happens, you may experience intermittent operation of that particular burner, or it may just stop working completely. The kit comes with parts to replace the original receptacle and once done, if the ends of the element look damaged, it may be time to replace it as well.
