Replace burner seals of gas cooktop

I've got a brand new 14 year old Kitchenaid glass gas cooktop which I just installed. The seals or gasket gave a horrid rubbery smell when the cooker is used for 10 minutes or more. I dismantled the burners and have been trying to replace the seals or gaskets. Kitchenaid/Whirlpool says my unit is obselete and no longer carry the seals. Any idea what other seals I can use to replace them? The original seals are like 1/16" in thickness and 3" and 5 3/8" D and 1/2" wide. They fit in between the ingniter unit and the glass top from underneath. One appliance parts company suggested canning seals but I fear they may not withstand the heat. Any alternatives and suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!   product: Kitchenaid 30"gas sealed cooktop  model #ykgct305t

Why not refer this issue directly to KitchenAid. Maybe they can explain the disparity between what the installation sheet shows and what you actually don't see.

I have a GE glass ~ gas cooktop that is 14 years old. One of the burners has a hard time lighting and just flickers. If I turn on another burner at the same time it will light and I have to turn and push...


I would say that after 14 years your stove could use a checkup/cleaning by a professional who will readjust the settings afterwards so it operates as it should. Don't try it yourself it's dangerous stuff gas.

A small crack, turns into a big crack, Short of ordering a new piece of glass, there is no "fix" sorry. YOu can continue to use it, but eventually it will run across the cook top, and then shatter the glass... Better be safe than sorry.

GE gas cooktop


Wow, never heard of that,.... bleeding through glass? I checked the GE service web site and there are no Service Bulletins relating to anything like this. I guess if it were mine and I had that history with it, I'd try the new top, but removing the gasket and first putting a layer of foil duct tape on the underside of the new glass top, then use some new foam gasket material under the cooktop. Good luck. Please don't bother to rate this solution, as anything but a fixya will lower my rating. Thanks.

Glass cooktop keeps cracking in same area


The cooktop box has a metal flange. Make sure the cooktop when dropped into the countertop is resting on ther metal flange and not the glass edge by itself. If it rests on the glass alone the weight will cause the glass to crack at some point in time.
