You replaced the black switch?

New one should be like...



Quote:
L1 white, P blue, H1 white with blk tape ( to distinguish between whites) H2 white L2 black.
I am concerned the wires got mixed up, wrong "line" in the wrong spot can cause a short through the pilot light.

Black and red should be the L1 and L2, H1 and H2 are normally the white from the element and the blue is pilot light. The L feeds the pilot light and the red and black cannot be mixed up.

Wire diagram on the back of the range in an envelope? If yes, post a copy or email a copy so we can have a peek.

Maybe I got the the red and black mixed up. Would that cause a short circuit?

Different to the first one you mentioned, the second certainly looks to be correct from the wire diagrams.

It can through the pilots lights yes. See how the L1 feeds the pilots, if accidentally the L2 feed a pilot and both switchs where turned on it could cause a short and possible dmaage one or both switches.

Were not there to check it out but that certainly sounds like a good idea.....looks like all the switches are wired like that from the diagram pic.

Maybe check and redo the wiring before replacing anything and see what happens.
