I recently replaced the dual burner control for the right front burner on our smooth top range as it would not regulate the heat (stayed red). with a replacement control (Whirlpool 12002125). The wiring is somewhat different and we used the supplied wiring diagram to install the new switch. I however did not separate the dual red wires (L2 on old control) and connect the supply wire to P2 and the wire routed to the element to 2 on the new sw as I already have a single red wire (L2 also on old sw) from the left that is a lighter guage and runs to a multi wire plug connected to 2. (Someone on another forum said you do not have to separate the two reds). The new control does not regulate the heat. I assume I have it wired incorrectly as I swapped controls from the left dual burner and it worked fine.
