    Default Vintage stove wiring

    Know anything about the wiring on an old 40" coil top Gibson? Have one surface burner not getting hot in the middle two coils. It looks to have 4 terminals but only 3 leads, 2 hots and a nuetral. It appears the surface burners are not all wired exactly the same. This looks normal on this stove. I may have to clean them a little to see where the grnd is connected to them.

    Didn't figure the model number would be much help even if I had it with me. I moved this to storage. It is in really good cosmetic condition, and I would like to get it straightened out.

    Thanks.

    Nope, maybe take some pictures.

    Often one is common to both ( 2 connections ) and one inner ( 1 connection ) and one outer coil ( 1 connection ).

    That is exactly what I think is going on here, but thought I would try to confirm it before connecting the neutral to two terminals.

    I will try to think to take a pic. Actually I think these are marked. Needs a good cleaning so maby I can see a little better concerning the neutral on that burner.

    Hahah, I hear ya "film school"!

    Did take a pic of the burner. It does have the terminals labled. 1,2, and common on the other two terminals. The wires really need replacing as 2 and the one on the common side were dang near off. Were not on good at all. Looks like I had them where they were supposed to be. That being said, I assume the common side has only the one wire. I didn't think I had a meter with me to see if the 2 terminals were connected. These burners do have a ground on the bottom in the middle. I think it is attached to the piece that holds the element together.

    I got a pretty good pic, but I have been unable to post any for so long on here. Maybe I can copy the picture somewhere else and paste here.

    Hopefully, I will be able to post pics of the wiring in a little bit. I really like this old Gibson.

    I think we got it, but I assume if I delete these pictures from our site, the link will not work since I copied the link, not the pictures.
