2511 Automatic Reset Thermostat Switch

2511 Series Automatic Reset Thermal Switch

February turned out to be the ‘alter your oven’ month.

A customer from FL called in after many attempts to find a replacement thermal switch for his oven.  The old switch was 1/2” but he had such trouble locating them that he wasn’t dissuaded by our 3/4” discs. (FYI: 1/2”s are coming soon, mid April 2012!!)  The trouble, of course was not the temp range or the voltage, simply the mounting profile.  Easy fix!

He ordered a 2511F036-121 standard thermal switch which closed at 140°F and open at 110°F.  The thin profile of the bracket gave him the versatility needed.  One end screwed into the existing mounting hole, the other was secured using a hose clamp.  And, as expected, the humble switch is doing its job well protecting his oven’s key components.

Three cheers for flexibility and ingenuity!

Our temperature switches work by using a bimetal disc. The bimetal disc in the switch reacts to heat, and opens or closes a set of contacts based on what the ambient temperature is. This is works because the different metals in the disc react to heat in different ways, which causes the disc to bend.
