    I’ve recently installed a new element #GL2195000 with a new infinite switch #GLCKG03185-2.
    The surface element turns on when the infinite switch is at minimum and at maximum but is irresponsive in between. 
    Is there a chance that the element or switch is defective?

    If you have a new infinate switch, and it’s doing this you have miss-wired the switch

    Verify that you have the correct voltage infinite switch, for your application. The low and hi positions, in the switch, bypass the bi metal part of the switch that regulates the temperature.

    Thank you for your replies. rico I am certain that the infinite switch is the right part. fixbear, could you supply me a conversion diagram from old style switch to new style switch? I may have unknowingly miss-wired the switch, but I followed the instructions included in the box to a tee. Please advise

    The two “L” terminals are line and should be hot 208 volts going into the switch.  The two “H” terminals are the wires that go to the element. Not certain about the “P”. I believe it is for a pilot light to tell it’s on and not used.

    Yes, P is for a light.

    so all he has to do is take out the trusty DVOM and find the hot wires.


    It frustrates me no end that all the garland manuals and wiring diagrams have been deleted from all the parts suppliers and even Garland has made them impossible to find.
