Where did they get those 8 inch surface units? GE stopped using that pattern in the 8 inch units in the early 50s and those are not genuine Calrods.

If memory serves me right, we had that GE cooktop in stainless in a 1960 home, and I replaced at least 3 burners thru the years, and remember that pattern. 3 or 4 wires to the ceramic junction, and the cooktop directions talked about how lowest heat was 120 around the outside edge, next up was 120 around the inside. 6 buttons for 5 heats and off.

That's probable, since burners were often replaced - this one sold on eBay seems to have the non-original Calrod burners, as well.

And here, the same story:

But then there is a GE stovetop appears to have the original Calrods:

(third picture down from top, clickable to enlarge) - CA. 1959.

So , good eye if those weren't the original calrods on the turquoise cooktop.
