Cannot find Amana range part
« on: December 28, 2008, 12:07:50 AM »

My Amana range uses switchable cooktops such as ACR110E.  These cooktops have five prongs that plug into a receptaple that has metal clips, Maytag part # Y0042123 or old # 0042123.  I have had one backordered forever.  NO-ONE has these in stock.  Does anyone know how I can "rig" something up or otherwise find this part??  Here is a picture of it:

 I usually replace the harness connections one at a time by ordering a W10116763 which is a colored wire with a new cartridge  terminal on one end that you can splice into your wiring as a replacement.
