Looking for a replacement relay

Hello! I'm looking for a replacement for a broken relay in my Whirlpool oven.

The relay model is a NAIS (now panasonic), model number: JW2AH-T-F-DC9V-Y8-H. After a lot of search on the net I have found a bit of information but no datasheet. This is probably a custom made part for Whirlpool, so like this they can sell the whole control panel (300$) instead and make more money on spare parts instead of replacing only the relay for 2$.

Anyway, the spec that I need is:

DPST-NO (2 form A)
Coil Voltage 9VDC
16A 240VAC

Can someone help me find a way to replace my broken relay please?

Thanks for the time you have take to read my post.

Is it PCB or panel mounted? Can you post a good photo if it?

It looks like the JW2 series relay is still being made, but it seems that the common contact rating is 6A, not 16A, and a lot of configurations are form C only. Look closely at your relay: did they just cut off the NC terminals and convert from C to A? This would allow you to buy a form C relay if you find one.

Some of the "special" features of your relay might be post-manufacture moisture sealing of an ordinary JW2 relay, and testing at higher voltages.

For an electrical equiv. Hosfelt.com or allelectronics can probably help you. You'll probably need a dropping resistor to go from 12vdc or higher down to 9vdc.

Just the opposite, and that's the hard part. It's presumed that since the OEM relay is a 9V unit, the replacement will have to be 9V or less. Already these contact ratings (16A, 240V) are unusual with a 9V coil, and will be even more difficult to find with lower coil voltages.

You might consider using a relay like all electronics RLY-523 (call them and see if the contacts will handle 120V or more) to drive the 120V coils of a pair of RLY-482's.

Thank you all for the help! This forum is awesome and I will come back for sure.

I have finally solve my problem, after looking for a replacement relay with the same specs, which is almost impossible (believe me I have look at many different manufacturer and send email to tyco, panasonic, etc... and suppliers).

What I did is the following, I went to my local appliances parts store and ask for a broken board, they were having 4 of them. Normally they send it to a repair shop a resell the part refurbished for 115$ (instead of 325$ for a new). But I was able to have a broken one for 50$ with 2 relays working on it. So I have change the one that was dead on my board and I will keep the rest of this broken board for parts in case it broke again.

Yeah it's maybe cheaper to buy a relay for 2-3$, but when it's impossible to find 50$ is a good deal if you compare to the 325$ +tx. My oven is working find now, thanks for your time guys!

See y'a!
