replacement part for my oven/stove switch "spring'?

I am looking for a replacement part, anyone know what the brass spring thing is called on this oven/stove switch in the picture? I have an KitchenAid stove with a knob that is loose because this spring thing is broken.

I have only seen the switch assembly available as a part. I have never seen individual internal parts sold separately. If you want some of our experts to look it up for you we will need the model number of the stove.

Pull off another knob and see if that steel collet/sleeve is part of the knob, not the switch.

On that control it is not a generic part. It comes with the switch. Most controls have the clip in the knob. They had to be different. I have never seen it as a separate part.

I would need a model number to offer any more detailed help.

Thanks guys for the info, here is the actual part number. I just need to know what that clip is called, there has to be a generic term for it so I can just look it up and buy a bunch of them hehehe

A good source for oddball small parts at no cost is your local transfer station, recycling center, or dump (or even curbside). Ask if you can pull off a few knobs from a range being trashed.

Have you looked at online appliance parts websites? I assume you will have to purchase the whole switch but you've got the part number so that should be easy.

We still need the model number of the stove if you want a more investigative look into that clip.

That control is around $100.

I checked my master parts list catalog for Whirlpool and didn't find those clips.
My parts distributor says he doesn't have them and no one has ever asked for a replacement.
My advice..... call local service companies in your area. Ask them if they might have one.

You don't want the D ring for a D shaft. That's what over 90% of the stoves and ovens use.

Thanks Pete, yes D ring won't work on my model. I gave up on looking for the specific pin and instead got myself some cotter pins from homedepot and I cut a small length on one of the pin as it seemed to be the right thickness and wedged it in with the knob and it worked just fine. it is now very snug, so hopefully it will be good for a while.
