JACUSTOMER-jcrcjn11- :

It looks like the correct unit although I have not as yet removed it from the hood.

George-Allsorts :

This is the one listed for your unit but there were two...

I can still get that part for you ... It is available at £71.13 but obviously there is now limited stock due to the demise of DeDietrich

George-Allsorts :

If you wish to try find it yourself .. the part number is *****

JACUSTOMER-jcrcjn11- :

You say that there were two what is the difference. The buttons are chrome finished in the switch fitted to the hood at present.

George-Allsorts :

This is the other one... Same number but looks slightly different.. So, since they both have the same part number It is most likely that both parts will fit
