I need an 8" automatic element part #WB30X152 for my vintage GE electric stove model J408S3. The part is no longer being manufactured and I've tried parts suppliers but to no avail. This burner is attached to a thermostat and has a ceramic piece covered with metal in the center to regulate the heat. Instead of push buttons, a dial with numbers is used to set the temperature of the element. I've even looked for other stoves for sale just to obtain this part. I'd appreciate any suggestions to fix my stove. Thanks.

When I was a kid we got a GE stove with constant temp control. It used a slide control. The other burners where push buttons.

It also can with a grill and you "plugged in". When it was plugged in the back burner was slaved to the front (constant temp) control.

It was a 56 or so model.

Over the years I had to replace it several times. The last time it failed they no longer made it, but offered a replacement kit with a continous varaible control. Much like current models use.

I am guessing that was sometime around 1965-70.

Do you know the age of yours?

Sorry, can't be of any more help. But you might look and see if anyone still has a replacement kit.

Are you certain it is the element that is needed and not the element sensor or control switch?

BTW. I did find a substitute number for that element. Part # WB30X365 is a more recent replacement for it although I can't find anyone with stock of it either.
