    Depends on the stove burner. If it's the correct wattage and you have a way to connect it up it should work fine.

    As a side note, You could go to an appliance parts store and get the exact replacement part. They are still made by chromalox.

    I replace the burner on a littleton using a small burner fron a electric stove. I found that the wires on the old one were burned and crystalized (sp). I cut the wiring out of the stove and used the bake-a-lite connector fron the store. The stove wiring is high temp and the bake-a-lite connector get the wiring a little fartheer away from the element. If you have the option the stove element should be 220v. Mine works with this combo. I bought my littleton shotmaker on ebay and the prior owner had welded a dam half way across the ladel. This allow the ingots to meld without taking any heat away from the lead going to the drippers. The dame has a small 1/8" hole in it near the top so when the lead is melted in the top half, it drains thru the hole and into the lead going to the drippers. Works fine for me
