    Jenn air cooktop infinite switch

    Model Number: cp220b-c
    Brand: Jenn-Air
    Age: More than 10 years

    One 240p998 infinite switch, on our cooktop faulted to high only. Since 240p998 is discontinued, I replaced all 4 infinite switches with Whirlpools' replacement w11120791, connecting wires accordingly, L1 to L1, L2 to L2, P to P, H1 to H1, and H2 to HC (as directed).
    Now the switches work correct individually, but if the 2 burners, in a cartridge, are on at the same time, they both will turn on/off simultaneously when either switch opens/closes.
    Does anyone have any suggestions to solve this issue?
    Cooktop is old but still works great ... except for these new switches!!
    Thanks for any help with this.

    Good day all ... I have solved the problem with these switches ... decided to post this in case someone else is looking for answers. We searched far and wide and finally found this info on another forum.
    In order for the burners to work individually, there are two wires that have to be changed. The H1 and HC wires on new switch have to be reversed ...
    H1 on old switch to HC on new switch, and H2 on old switch to H1 on new switch.
    This works great ... I reversed the wires on all 4 switches and each burner now works independently.
    Hope this info is useful to someone. We were lost for answers 'til we 'happened' on this advice ... thank goodness for forums like these and thanks to those who will take the time to share their info and help others.
    Take care all and be well during this virus dilemma ....

    Hi, Thanks for posting this information! I am only replacing one switch...front right. Should I still reverse the H1 and H2 wires?
