Question about Hotpoint Kitchen Ranges
I have an older Hotpoint Kitchen Range model KE747PW1. Some of the screw-in fuses on the top were busted and I took them out to inspect which ones were problematic. Unfortunately I lost count of the order and now have a mix of 20 and 30 amp fuses and don't know which ones go where. Any one can help?
The higher Amp fuses are for the oven elements and the lower amp fuses are for the burners on top and the lighting if applicable. Some models have it printed on a piece of paper next to the fuses holders. Let me know if it helps!

SOURCE: my range electrodes keep firing
If you cleaned it with soap and water or a household cleaning solution, some of it has probably gotten down to one of the switches that control the surface ignitors. Very common problem. Leave it unplugged when you are not using it and they will dry out and return to normal. You can pull the knobs off and try using a hair dryer, it may help a little, but it basicly is just a matter of time.
There are different variations of this model. If you will post the complete model number I can probably tell you how to remove the top, but there usually is little reason to take it off unless something needs repairing.

I let the screws soak for a few days in release oil but with no success. I decided the only way to get the seized screws out was to drill and tap new holes through the hob and into the hob burner mixing tube support flanges. This allowed new screws (stainless as opposed to the standard, chrome plated steel screws) to be screwed into place. Once this was done I then drilled out the heads of the remaining seized screws. This allowed the hob tops to be removed so that the oven thermostats could be changed. The hob screws were then screwed back into place and lubricated with loads of high temp. copper grease to prevent corrosion. I will also remove and re-grease these screws every six months or so to prevent any chance of seizure in future!
A few points to remember: (a) make sure that any holes in the hob top are sealed with something such as a screw coated with high temp fire cement etc. to prevent any possibility of unburnt LPG getting into the space below the hob top. (b) make SURE that you do not drill or tap into anything that could damage the cooker and cause a gas leak or damage any of the gas ignition leads etc. (c) Make sure that the appliance is totally 'gas tight' after doing any work which will disturb the gas connections, and (d) If you don't have gas qualifications and are not sure of what you are doing then get an expert, registered gas engineer to do the work for you. Don't take a chance with gas!!
