I had to go to the hardware store and buy longer screws and a spacer to make this work. At the shortest stem length (you break it off to get the depth you need) - the knob was sticking out about 1/2" farther than the other knobs. So I put a 3/8" thick bushing over the shaft and bought some longer screws. Been in for a few months now. Electrically, it has worked find from the start. OH - and the little orange piece had worked its way INSIDE the switch. Didn't ever see that until the final installation attempt when it fell out.

Appears it was probably made by GE's OEM supplier, but just not labeled/marketed through GE. No GE bag. (If it's a knockoff, then it's a good job visually.) The original "looks" heavier duty but that does not mean this is not just as capable. Since this is a (GE OEM equivalent) replacement for many part numbers it does not exactly match the original physically and has a bunch of adapters. Just take your time and be sure you break the shaft at the correct point. Mark it with a Sharpie! I suggest using a cell phone or other camera to take snapshots of the wiring before you remove wires from the old one!

I seems to be working fine electrically. It's just a little harder to get past the push and turn point when turning on. That may improve over time as it gets broken in physically? Not a big deal.

Debated whether to give it 4 or 5 stars. As a match for the GE OEM multipart replacement, it's a 5. I just prefer the original, but I can't fault this too much since that was a GE decision.

Good kit, easy to use and fairly universal. I was able to replace both a large and small burner controller with this same part. The various parts and pieces let you make it fit into several models. I docked the review by one star because the package for one of the two of these I ordered had been opened and one part (that I needed) was missing so I had to improvise to make the one fit.

The product came in a very timely manner, The instructions are very detailed, and the install was very easy as it is an OEM product. I have booked marked this seller as I have a lot of GE appliances and I like to do repair rather than replace. I say order from here you get what is shown.

Kind of a flaky replacement I wasn't sure how long it would last. It's been getting the job done. This may not be the best choice for you. Lots of little adapters and parts to cover a variety of shoved I guess. Be sure to measure twice and cut once!

Works great, the installation went without a problem until I got to the knobs. The plastic adaptors that are included just don't work right for my GE stove. Now the knob stands out an inch more than it should.

Caution: This switch is an electrical hazard

I am not impressed with this switch.
1. Instructions on wiring are wrong and pose a severe electrical hazard, breakers will turn off. Wiring instructions cause two half of split phase electrical power to be connected together under no electrical resistance Red and Black 240V connected.
2. The operation of the contacts in the switch are noisy. (Contacts turn on and off during operation to obtain different temperature settings, contacts are noisy)
3. The standard shaft adapters cause knob to stand well off of the front of the stove even when the shaft is cut to length, will not match other knobs.
4. Generic replacement part being falsely advertised as a official GE replacement, not GE branded.
5. Handling time was very slow. Arrived in one day after it finally left the warehouse.

This is a genuine GE replacement part and my husband installed the switch very easily. He did run into a little problem with the front knob adapters they were all too long for my particular knobs., but after a little trial and error he got one of the smallest adapters to work and now the switch and knob are working fine. The knob being kindly hard is why I give a 4 star.
