    I need to replace my pots and simmer control unit. What is the correct disassembly procedure?

  • Homeman107 Sep 27, 2008

    Left rear XLO burner has failed on my RDSS30QW. The repairman said he would have to "drill out" all 4 burners and replace 4 jet holders and 4 injector sleeves. Sounds kind of invasive. Is there a better way which avoids destroying parts as you go?

Remove 4 screws under the trim that surrounds the burner knob panel. They are on the underside and you will be looking straight up to see them.

Slide the trim down and off after removing the screws.

remove the burner grills and caps

remove the 4 brass venturis and you will then be able to lift the cooktop

the valves are easy to get to

I have a kenmore stove model number 790,72403012 and 3 of the 4 burners are working. They all are getting a spark, but the front left won't fire up.


First, try to light the burner in question with a match. Just hold a match to the burner, then turn the gas on to low. If the burner doesn`t light, the problem is the gas supply to the burner. Next, lift the top cover and put the prop rod in the hole in the cover to support it. Hold a match to the left-front burner. Now, turn the control knob to "light". You should see the igniter spark and hear a snap. If this doesn`t happen, repeat this step with the left rear burner. If you hear the spark and snap.
If the igniter doesn`t work on the front left burner, but does on the rear left burner, the igniter does work. The problem is likely the control knob for the left front burner. The. Control knob includes the electrical switch the activates the igniter when you turn on that burner.

How can I open the top of my gas kitchen range?


Usually you can just pull the front upwards and it should open. Occasionally there are two or three screws under the front edge you may need to remove, then lift it up.

My range has a solid burner set into the top without any obvious way to remove it from the top. How do I access the connections or remove the burner from the range?


There should be 2 release "tabs" between the top surface piece and the main range... e.g. the "slot" in the front of the range.
You'll need to lift slightly on the top surface while pressing these tabs with a thin utensil - like a butter knife or paint scrapper. Be careful to not scratch the paint.
The tabs are located on the front left and right.
In some cases, you can slightly lift the top panel to get a better view of the tabs with a flashlight.
Then, the top should lift up, similar to the hood of a car.
Once inside, it's pretty easy to work on the connections, burners, etc.

Kenmore glass top range left front large burner out


check the burner socket, it is likely that contact is being lost where the burner connects to the hardwired portion of the system (the socket). It is not unusual for the socket to "burn up" when there is a poor connection to the burner resulting in the burner being replaced and the new burner not working or working intermittently.

GE Elec Range - front left burner will not turn on


If you have the glass cooktop slide-in model, the problem is most likely the burner "ribbon' under the glass top for the small burner has come loose. I fixed mine with only a phillips-head screwdriver, needle-nosed pliers, and a 1/4" wrench (1/4" socket on the end of a nutdriver works better). Here are the steps I took to fix it: 1) Slide the oven out from the counter so the sides of the oven are clear of the counter top. 2) Remove the phillips head screws-1 on each side of the oven near the top/rear. These will be the only phillips-head screws you will need to remove. 3) Open the oven door and remove the 4 hex-head screws at the top/front/inside the oven- there are 2 on each side which follow the opening of the door. Then close the door. 4) Pull off the burner knobs by gripping them and pulling straight up. Don't worry, you will not break them but you will need to give them a good tug. 5) Remove the burner retaining nuts that are under the knobs-you may need a wrench to loosen them but only tighten them by hand when reinstalling. 6) Pull the face of the control panel away from the oven slowly until you see a ribbon connector on the right side and then disconnect the ribbon and remove the face plate from the oven. 7) Remove the 4 hex-head screws from the face plate bracket (the plastic part that was holding the face plate) and pull the bracket toward the front of the oven until it flops over and rests on the oven door handle. 8) remove the 2 black screws holding down the glass top-one on each side of the oven-the screw heads face the front of the oven. 9) Disconnect the two wiring harnesses attached to the cook top. Don't worry, they only fit one way so you don't need to label them. 10) Lift the cook top until the wiring harnesses are clear of the holes and place it upside down on a flat surrface. 11) Remove the two retaining bracket screws and brackets from each side of the non-working burner. 12) Slowly lift the burner and flip it upwards until you see the ribbon coils. It should not be necessary to disconnect any wires. 13) Look at the ribbon coils very carefully to see if any of them are disconnected from their main connection points. If so, feed the ribbon back inside the pinch point (you may need a small screwdriver to open the pinch point first) and then use a pair of needle-nosed pliers to pinch the ribbon to hold it in place. I had to use a voltage meter set in the OHM position to find where mine were disconnected. Once you pinch the ribbon end back into place, put everything back together in reverse order. If your burner still does not work, your burner knob switch may be bad. I hope this helps. Good Luck!
