How to fix igniter for top burners


Hello. The range you have has a spark ignitor module inside the top, beneath the cooktop. Also, there is a spark ignition harness that has the four switches(snapped onto each of the burner valves at the control panel) connected together(daisy chained) that goes to the module and the incoming 120v supply. HOWEVER, the bigger issue here is getting to the module, harness, and other parts beneath the cooktop. Gas ranges are notorious for having the mount screws seize in the burners. When removing them is attempted, the heads usually snap off causing burner replacement to be necessary(which is why I listed the part numbers for the burners and screws). The cost of this can be high. I suggest calling for service if you are at all hesitant about working on the range.

How to access under cooktop on sealed burner gas range.


There should be some screws just under the front lip of the oven or just inside it. Remove them and the top should lift up.

I want to lift the cook top on GE range jbp82shss so that I can clean out all the dust. can I do this


Yes. Disconnect power to range. Open oven door and remove hex head screws at front edge of cooktop from the bottom side. Lift up front of cooktop. Burner units can then be removed from the underside of the cooktop. Be careful not to damage the gray insulating material around the burner elements if you remove the elements from the cooktop glass.

My spark module is probably out, but I don't know how to open up the range to look at it/replace it. How is this done?


Most newer ranges with sealed burner cooktops can be a little bit tricky to open. People have a tendency to try and lift the cooktop up like on the older ranges and end up damaging the range and causing a gas leak. The first thing to do is to unplug the range of course. Then start by removing the rear panel of the range. From there you can get a visual feel of what you are up against. With the back panel removed you should be able to see into the top part of the range. Most newer sealed burner cooktops require you to disconnect the screws holding the burner tubes to the bottom of the cooktop. If you do not remove these screws you will break the tubes when you lift the cooktop. Most of the time the screws are removable from the top at the burner heads. Once these screws are removed you should be able to lift the cooktop up. From there the ignition wiring and spark module should be available now for servicing.

How do you open the stove lid of a Kenmore 7907138 five burner gas range? I need to clean it.


You need to be careful with sealed burner ranges. If you try to lift the range top you can damage the alluminum gas pipes for the burners under the range top. Check to see if the burner heads lift off. If the burner heads are held on by screws make sure you remove those first. With the heads removed look down into the cooktop thru the hole where the burner sits. Make sure the orfice is not attached to the lid. If they are you may see a screw you can remove. Look for any other screws behind the oven door that may be attached to the lid. Apply light pressure when trying to lift the lid. If you feel any major resistence DO NOT FORCE IT UP. Sears.com also has parts schematics for every range they make and that will visually help with the dis-assembly because you can see how the parts go together. Also MAKE SURE YOU UNPLUG THE APPLIANCE AND TURN OFF THE GAS VALVE BEFORE WORKING ON IT!!!

How to replace maintop (cooktop) frigidaire oven FGFG79GBA


To remove the main top first remove the grates,
burner caps and burners. Using a ¼” socket
wrench or nut driver remove the mounting
screws at each burner orifice assembly.

Insert a putty knife or similar tool between the
main top and manifold panel near the outside
of the front corner. Push the putty knife toward
the rear to release the maintop mounting clip.
Repeat for both sides.

When the mounting clips are released the front
edge of the cooktop can be lifted. Make sure
that the orifice assembly does not bind in the
cooktop when raising the top to remove it from
the range.

Lift the front of the cooktop and pull forward to
disengage the back edge from the rear hinge
bracket. The cooktop can now be replaced by
reversing the previous steps.

Cooktop


IF THIS IS A SEALED BURNER GAS COOKTOP, AND YOU LIFTED THE TOP, YOU HAVE PROBABLY DAMAGED THE ALUMINUM GAS TUBING THAT GOES TO THE FRONT BURNERS. THEY WILL HAVE TO BE REPAIRED OR REPLACED BEFORE YOU NEED TO WORRY ABOUT REINSTALLING THE TOP.

Problem w/burners & lights after self clean


You may want to re-seat the right two cooking elements, in case there is poor electrical contact. When you have them removed, clean the contacts with denatured 91% alcohol and a Q-tip. The removal procedure follows.
First, unplug the range.
LIFT–UP PORCELAIN COOKTOP 
To lift:  When cool, grasp the cooktop front 
edge.  Gently lift up until the two support rods 
snap into place. 
To lower:  Hold the cooktop front edge and 
carefully push back on each support rod to 
release.  Then lower the top into place. 
COIL ELEMENTS 
➢When an element is on, it will cycle on 
and off to maintain the heat setting. 
➢Coil elements are self-cleaning. Do not 
immerse in water. 
To remove:  When cool, raise element.  Carefully pull out and away from receptacle. 
Check them for damage. They do wear out.
To replace:  Insert element terminals into receptacle.  Guide the element into place. Press down on the outer edge of element until it sits level on drip bowl. 
COIL ELEMENT SURFACE 
➢ On Canadian models, the two front elements will not operate during self-clean.To prevent the risk of electric shock or fire, never line drip bowls with aluminum foil.


If that does work, you may have a faulty control panel. In that case, call Maytag at the number below.

One of my burners is out, and I do not know how to get under the cooktop


You can check the element from the switch on the control panel. Unplug the oven, remove the back and put an ohm meter on r1 and r2 terminals to check resistance. If it shows open then the element is bad. If it shows resistance then replace the switch. To remove the top there should be screws under the front part of the top which you can see when you lower the door then just lift up. You won't be removing just the glass.
